We booked a double ensuite for 1 night whilst we were through for a wedding in nearby Blair Drummond (which was roughly about 10 minutes away). We were greeted by a friendly girl behind the bar. The room itself was basic but cozy and had everything you'd need for a 1 night stay. The four poster bed was extremely comfortable....

We stayed at the Red Lion Inn June 2016. We arrived and took forever to park our vehicle while being watched by some people working in the back.

The room was quite basic considering the price we paid. It cost us 40 pound per person, 120 pound which is equivelant...

Once parked in the handy car park entrance to the 'Bar and Reception' was through a narrow back corridor past the 'Gents'. Squeezing myself and my small case through the packed bar to check in was tricky as was negotiating the same packed bar half an hour later to pay for my nights stay in advance. After a false start...

Some rooms are nicer than others. I had a front room which was excellent-quaint, clean, lovely decor. The restaurant was very good for breakfast and dinner. The innkeeper went above and beyond helping us get to the train station on time. THANK YOU! Within walking distance to Doune Castle.

We came across this hotel and wasn't it great. Met with lots of locals. Could not complain about anything. Nice food, good service. It was not far from sterling and the castle. Duone castle was just a short walk. Ryans from Australia
