Old Churches House has been winning fans on TripAdvisor where it is rated a fantastic 4.5/5. This is what a recent guest had to say. We have edited it for length:
‘Faultless hotel… Lovely setting, right in centre of Dunblane, opposite the Cathedral. All staff we met were friendly and helpful from the minute we got there… huge bed with tartan trimmings, large TV, luxury towels, oak furniture and Tunnock’s teacakes left with the coffee facilities… There is a lovely lounge area with leather seating to relax in and a comfortable garden area at the rear of the hotel for nice weather. Overall, we could not fault this hotel and would recommend it to anyone. Will definitely go back.’
