Very Friendly Hosts, lovely room -
We enjoyed our one night stay here very much. The hosts couldn't have done more to be friendly and even managed to cook us a very early breakfast, so we could be off to the ferry port in good time.We'd certainly stay here again, if in the area, but would need a different room for a longer stay. The shower in the garden room was very weak in water pressure.

Perfect place to stay -
Laura and Deon are the most friendly and welcoming hosts. They go out of their way to make your stay special. We stayed in the "Woodlands"room and it was comfortable and clean with a beautiful view of the woods behind the guest house. It is an ideal base for exploring the Trossachs and Scotland at its best.

A wonderful stay -
The Knowe is realy a place I would advise to anybody who wants to visit Callander. The owners are very welcoming ans are at your service as soon as you arrive. The service is like in a good hotel but you feel at home. The house is warmly decorated and soooo british (sorry, scottish). Our room was perfectly clean;spacious and well equiped. The owners can give you very good advises about the places to visit or the pubs and restaurants. We'll visit Callander again next year and we'll go back to The Knowe (if rooms are available).

Perfectly Pampered -
---LocationThe guesthouse is situated on the highest street in Callander on the hill, parallel to the main street. A few minutes walk away there's a road higher up onto the hill, towards the Bracklinn Falls area. There are many footpaths and bike paths nearby. Within a 30-45 minutes drive by car there is lots of cultural entertainment.---Guesthouse &room "Greenwood"The Guesthouse has four guest rooms on the top floor. Downstairs has partly private rooms, a shared sitting room (which we didn't use, but looked comfortable and nicely decorated) and a breakfast room.We stayed in the room called "Greenwood". It's a very spacious room, beautifully decorated, very clean, with a gorgeous, recently renovated bathroom. The bed is comfortable, not too soft, not too hard. There is a little sitting area and also a small desk in another corner of the room with enough power outlets (usb even) to work on your laptop while recharging devices. There's also a large cupboard to hang clothes.The Greenwood room is situated towards the back of the house, away from the street, with a view on the garden and with all that is very quiet.---HostsDeon and Laura are super caring, sweet, and knowledgeable when it comes to whatever you wish to know about the area, where to eat, what to do, how to get there. And if they don't happen to know something, they make a great effort of getting the information you're looking for. Just ask them!---FoodBreakfast is included. The hosts ask you to fill out a little form in the evening with extra cooked options for breakfast. The basics like cereals, milk, yoghurt, juice, coffee, tea are always there. Be sure to ask for plant-based milk or other non-standard things if you need. The hosts will certainly try their best to give you the best breakfast experience.---Would I go there again?Absolutely! Without a doubt, if we were to visit this area again, we will not think twice and just book the Greenwood room at Deon and Laura's again.

We had a lovely stay at The Knowe. We were friendly welcomed on arrival, had a spacious, clean and cosy room with all amenities. We also helped with transport to a local bike shop when we needed a fix! The only feedback we could give is the TV cut out a lot but there were DVDs available also.

"We had a great stay at The Knowe guesthouse. Beautiful surroundings, a beautiful and comfortable room. But most of all we appreciated the very kind attention of Deon and Laura. They made us feel very welcome and suggested very lovely restaurants. After leaving we seemed to have left something. Deon contacted us and was so kind to send it to our following address. This is the kind of service that really makes the difference!I certainly recommend a stay at this friendly and stylish guesthouse.Geeske from Holland”
Reviewer:Geeske H | Wed 8th May 2019 | 4 months ago
We booked The Knowe because it looked incredibly nice on the internet, we were not to be let down.The guest house was clean,spacious and in a great location. The welcome we recieved upon our arrival was friendly, courtious and informative as was our departure the following morning after a true scottish hearty fry-up. The breakfast options were plentiful with other members of our group choosing the porridge and poached eggs on toast with unlimited tea/coffeee and toast and jam available. We stayed in the Gardens room which had fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and had a very comfortable bed. The young couple running the guest house deserve nothing but the highest praise for running such a beautiful place and for their freindliness and welcome. We would definitely stay here again

Reviewer:David F | Tue 13th Jun 2017 | 2 years ago
This is a gem of a place, rooms are superb and all en suite -
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

Superb B&B to Include in One\'s Travels Throughout Scotland -
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!

Staying at the Knowe. -
We were only there for two nights but have been before about 4 years ago.Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming and the house had a lovely view over Callander and beyond. The room had everything you would need and the breakfast was delicious.Just a short walk takes you into town but the house itself was in a quiet setting with Callander Crags and the woods just behind.

Fantastic place to stay -
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.

Mr & Mrs -
Excellent location with easy access to town shops and restaurants, and with woodland walks right behind. Hosts were very nice and welcoming, and the breakfast was oustanding. The one thing which could be improved was to have new bedding and towels.

Absolutely Lovely -
A well maintained home away from home situated on a hill overlooking Callander and the surrounding mountainside.A short walk to the main street, where there is not an eatery with a bad name or reputation.Our hosts were extremely kind, and polite, with a great local knowledge.Room costs were great value, and without a doubt, next time we are working in the area, we shall be back.Six stars out of Five!!

Knowe Guest House review -
Lovely Guest House, very friendly, great breakfast, large comfortable and warm room(with ensuite)with superb views over Calendar and the hills. Sky TV a bonus. A plus was a ground floor residents lounge and plenty of off street parking. Definitely somewhere to go back to.

Great find! -
For a group of rowers arriving at the end of a long day on the water in wind, rain and shine, the welcome and comfort of The Knowe was just what was required. Spacious, comfortable, well presented rooms.Fab views. Yummy breakfast. Lovely hosts.
Reviewer:Philippa B | Mon 26th Oct 2015 | 3 years ago
it's a guest house very near Callander center but enough far from the noise of the main street.. A quite place managed by a nice couple. Pretty room, quite clean;good breakfast shared in a big table with the other guests.5£ Less was the right price.

The Knowe Guest House is located in convenient area, very close to the city centre, with a small path connecting the two.The room was very spacious, with en-suite bathroom. We left very early in the morning, so unfortunately we hadn't got the opportunity to taste the breakfast.
