Definitely Recommended
The Forth Inn was just what I was looking for. My room was a bit on the small side but perfectly adequate for 2 nights. The hotel building is bit dated and tired looking but that's not really a concern or a criticism. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly. Overall the service was fast and efficient, and they coped very well with meeting the restrictions in place in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. I would recommend the Forth Inn to anyone.

Fantastic friendly staff
A nice little place to stay. A rustic pub and nice big open dining room with some decent food. The staff were fantastic and couldn’t have been more helpful, thank you. A comfy bed, the room was a little worn in but did the job, sadly noisy neighbours in the next room highlighted the rather thin walls. Breakfast was lovely in the mornings. Aberfoyle was lovely, a nice place to visit.

Basic facilities with decent food
It's a bit of an ugly building but the staff are friendly and the food is good. The facitilites are a bit basic but the room was a good size.
