Excellent - Rating 5/5

Very good guest house. Run by attentive couple. Room spacious and of a high standard of decor. I’m not sure how good other places are in the area but they would have to go some to beat this one.

Excellent service and welcome- Rating 5/5

We had an exceptional short stay with Deon and Laura they were such grand hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. My husband became unwell and their attention was most efficient and caring. We would wholeheartedly advise anyone considering to book their accommodation to go ahead with confidence.

Knows guest house - Rating 5/5

Lovely house, good sized room very comfortable and nice view of the back lawn. The house it’s self was set in a quiet location which is elevated from the road for a lovely view of the town and countryside. The owners were very attentive and gave me a warm reception on arrival. The breakfast in the morning was well cooked and good presentation. I would certainly visit thisB+B again.

This is a beautiful house near the centre of town but with grand views. It has lovely reception rooms and bedrooms, all with a fridge, and is run by a smashing couple who are very obliging. Good breakfast and outside garden furniture where we had a picnic dinner in the sun.

We had a lovely, albeit short, stay at The Knowes. Fantastic hosts made us very welcome, kindly let us in to our room early to allow us to dress for a wedding. Beautiful breakfast in the morning, fresh fruit salad and full Scottish breakfast, both delicious. Would definitely choose to stay there again.

B&B at the top ! - Rating 5/5

The stay at Knowe Guest House was one of the best we had. The room was really at the top, with lot of facilities, quiet, and witha very nice view of Callander city. the B&B is in a quiet neighbourhood near the city center ! The hosts are very attentive with good advices regarding the walking to the Bracklinn Falls (at 25minutes ago). For dinner, the host books for us at Poopies, a very good Scottish restaurant.

Extremely good value - Rating 5/5

Knowe Guest House was by far the best value for accommodation during our 16 day Scotland trip. The breakfast included in the price was wonderful. We enjoyed the spacious room, short walk to main street, clean premises, gorgeous setting and great hosts willing to do everything to make our visit enjoyable and comfortable.We highly recommend Knowe Guest House to anyone needing a base to explore the Trossachs.

Reviewer:David Friesen | Tue 13th Jun 2017

This is a gem of a place, rooms are superb and all en suite - Rating 5/5

The welcome and introduction were really friendly and helpful, my surprise was the ensuite bathroom in a really large room with lovely peaceful forest views (with wildlife thrown in!) to the rear.Right in the centre of Callander behind the church overlooking the whole valley, the owners showed me the front rooms too with breathtaking views.Couple of hundred yards to food and liquid refreshment on Main Street Callander.Both of the owners have travelled the world on cruise liners - and the attention to detail in the fixtures and finish of this guesthouse reflect this.I felt like taking my shoes off as I walked in, so plush was the hallway carpet.Breakfast seemed to whatever you wanted with the continental side available a,t morning dining, must comment on the juices which must have been of the natural and pressed kind, as the taste showed.Multi national guests, all seemed to love the place and stayed for many consecutive nights, so you might struggle to get a booking at times so book early.Definitely hats off to Deon and Laura who have got it spot on, I couldn't fault it, my partner and I will be back very soon for a leisure break instead of the business trip I was on.A real find.Just hope this review doesn't stop me getting a booking when I need it!Loved it.Kenny

Wonderful BnB!!!! - Rating 5/5

Staying at the Knowe House was the best experience we had on our Scotland trip. Cute BnB, beautiful room, very clean, new bathroom and the most delicious breakfast. Laura and Ray were super friendly and gave us great recommendations for the area. The woods of the National Park are just behind their house so you can have a nice walk and explore the beautiful area by foot. If you go out for dinner we recommend Poppies. It was just so delicious!!!! Thanks for everything. We enjoyed ourselves so much.

Superb B&B to Include in One\'s Travels Throughout Scotland - Rating 5/5

Everything about our stay at the Knowe Guest House in scenic Callander was excellent and above our expectations.It was one of the very best B&B's we have ever stayed in and the Host and Hostess, Ashley and Ray both went above and beyond when we encountered a worrisome car issue and a delay in our travels.But the positives most definitely overshadowed this glitch in our travels and we couldn't have picked a better spot to be while we waited out the uncertainty.I guess it was fate to have stayed here.The room was most definitely very spacious, bright, cheary and so well appointed in every way possible.They thought of everything to meet the needs of their guests.We had a large bay window overlooking the town from a hillside location.The breakfast was fabulous with a terrific presentation in a large dining room and very large table.We needed to have breakfast earlier then their scheduled time to tend to our car issue, and, they both accommodated our needs without reservation, serving up the most delicious breakfast with an array of foods to include very fresh fruits.We were more than appreciative of their extra efforts on our behalf.Both Ashley and Ray are very seasoned in running an accommodation business over the years and this is translated into running a top notch service for all their guests in this B&B that showed.Ashley even charged my phone with her own charger while we waited for our car service from Glasgow!Such personalized service that just adds to a very memorable and positive stay.Staying at The Knowe Guest House has been a terrific and memorable experience for us and we rank it one of the very best overall in all our travels.Callander was a terrific place to have stayed, since it is only an hour north of Glasgow Airport upon our arrival and an alternative to staying in Sterling to the East, while close to continue our journey around Loch Lomond and onward towards Oban.We give the Knowe Guest House a two thumbs up.OSCAR!

My mother and I stayed at the Knowe Guest House for 5 nights. The accomodation was fantastic comprising of a twin room, ensuite shower room and seperate sitting room. It was clean and comfortable with great views. The beds are the best we've ever slept in when staying away from home. There was so much choice for breakfast and always cooked to perfection. Our host were chatty but not intrusive and you can tell that they take the trouble to make the place feel homely. I would highly recommend The Knowe Guest House as the place to stay if staying in the Callander area.
