Due to Covid it was contactless check in, which was very straightforward. The room was lovely with a large comfortable bed and everything was spotless. Our evening meal was absolutely delicious, as was breakfast the following morning. I’ve read several comments in reviews about the breakfast being disappointing and there being half a slice of haggis, black pudding etc. I think this is down to the presentation of the food, rather than being stingy with portions. There was more than enough included for breakfast but if you like your plate piled high, I can see why someone might be disappointed! Would highly recommend.

I fully understand and support measures that reduce the risk of the spread of Covid-19 . So with a heavy heart I write this review. Firstly, and most importantly the room we stayed in was absolutely immaculate and clearly fully cleaned (Covid standard) before our arrival. Self check in was in operation and that went well. Thereafter, not a great experience. The hand gel bottle on arrival was just about empty thus having to hand pump fiercely to get any gel. The other gel station had a wall mounted bottle that was full but didn't dispense the gel (in fact came off the wall with trying so hard to gel our hands). Ground floor room with the windows right on footpath thus no privacy if you had the window blinds open at all. If you wanted fresh air by opening windows your room would become insecure and persons could lean in steal stuff. The building is very old and the floors are not on the level thus the bed on one side was leaning downwards leading to an uncomfortable sleep. The rooms have been recently decorated and very pleasant. The water temperature for hand washing and showering was pleasantly warm but at no time during the day was the water ever hot. Due to covid the rooms weren't serviced again fully understand why. If you wanted to replenish tea/coffee milk etc and for us, more importantly, fresh towels, you had to seek a trolly in the ground floor for such things. I'm afraid the trolly was NOT well or regular stocked and the very few items on the trolly were not sealed (especially the towels), so in effect no infection control. If I were to be cynical I'd say that the balance between customer service and covid prevention was not right at the customer's expense. At times the 'look after yoursel practice' made the experience more like a self catering/youth hostel one. Hotel could and should do a lot better.

The refurbished rooms, as other reviewers have noted, are really nice, as is the decor in the restaurant. We stayed in room 4, which is small, but fine for 1 night. I would suggest that thought should be given to having either curtains, or a well fitting blind at the bedroom window as the current blind doesn't keep out the light. The service and food in the restaurant were both excellent. A good choice of starters and mains. If you're thinking of booking the deal that includes a main course meal please note that this gives you a £10 allowance towards the cost of your main course, which will cost between £12.95 and £14.95. Well worth it for the quality of produce and cooking. Breakfast was likewise very good, but, as a previous reviewer noted, the quantities could be improved. My husband had half a piece of haggis ... it looks so mean, as does the provision of one piece of toast each. Having said that I'm sure that we could have asked for more toast if required. I was surprised that the menu was limited to meat or veggie breakfast - the veggie one was very good - but no cereal or yogurt for example. Having said that we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend dinner at Belles Maison, but the breakfast offering needs to be better

Enjoyed a night in the hotel. Room recently refurbished so very comfortable with high quality shower products. Currently check-in is contactless so we waited until the time stated 4pm. Had to email for info we would have asked the Receptionist. There was an ‘emergency’ duty manager however we thought the virtual reception was the place to report the TV wasn’t working. We were told to speak to the restaurant staff but they are not employed by the hotel; tried their best but we ended up just leaving it and reporting it in the morning so the next guests had TV. Check out time is 10 am and our breakfast slot was 9.45 so we had to check out before breakfast. Not ideal - cleaned my teeth in the central ladies loo. COVID measures for breakfast meant limited options and had to request a pot of tea as the tea in the canteen flasks was cold. Lovely location and hotel but COVID measures are affecting the experience.

We have been visiting Dunblane for about 7 years now & more than once a year. We love staying at the Old churches, we have always loved the character with the sloping floors & the location is excellent. We notice that things have been going downhill but do notice that management read comments as I have mentioned that I would love the mugs to return rather than wee cups & bring back the tunnocks teacakes so we were happy the mugs & teacakes are back but despite the rooms being renovated & stunning they are, nowhere else in the hotel has been renovated, sadly not the corridors where paint has bubbled & needs attention. With regards to breakfasts, I hate saying but this has been getting worse & sadly this visit we were really unhappy. The amount of food was poor, 1/2 black pudding & 1/2 haggis each?? 3 mushrooms between us & disgusting sausage, hubby spat his out this morning. 1 slice cold toast & just barely over 1/2 cup hot water & tea bag @ the side. I would say that if you were to keep customers maybe the restaurant needs a renovation too...
