On arrival we found off street free parking, great start. As soon as we got into the house, we met Michael the owner and shortly after, Naomi, his lovely wife. The house is a beautiful period home built around 1850 and has been wonderfully restored. After we were shown to our lovely room with superb en-suite. in our room we found all the expected facilities but more that was some of Naomi’s freshly made hand baked cake and a wee dram should we feel like a nightcap – this sort of personal service you simply do not get in a hotel. Breakfast was arranged at a time to suit us and words cannot describe the attention to detail – the menu was simply amazing. Every possible thing was locally sourced and by that I mean as local as the stunning walled back garden where the chickens roam and the bees supply the honey! All in all the experience was such a treat, it was so nice be spoken to on first name terms. To top it off we were given some freshly laid eggs to take home, I will enjoy the Omelette and scrambled eggs they will provide me this week. If I ever need accommodation in Alloa or just a night away, Garvally House will definitely be one of the names at the top of my list – thanks you so much to Michael and Naomi for your fantastic hospitality

We were attending a wedding so didn’t venture out in Alloa but given you are minutes from the countryside, seems like a pretty central place to stay for a bit of tourism and far better than staying in some hotel chain.

I had the most wonderful two night stay with Naomi and Michael. They were so welcoming and friendly on arrival after a long journey! The rooms are wonderful – clean, so comfortable, en-suite is spacious and well equipped. Comfiest bed I think I’ve ever ever slept in, the room was always comfortably warm considering how freezing it was outside! The breakfast is by far the best breakfast I’ve ever had in any b&b or hotel. All homemade and so tasty! I would recommend to everyone, an absolute gem of a place.

A gem hidden away in Alloa.
The owners are lovely people; courteous and kind; helpful to a fault; nothing is too much trouble.
The ‘Full Scottish’ breakfast is wonderful; it will set you up for a day of exploring Alloa; the surrounding towns and the hills of Clackmannanshire and Fife.
The rooms have everything you would need and there’s even a wee tot of whiskey (for medicinal purposes of course).
Good value, good company, good food – what more could you ask!

I received a very warm welcome by the owners. Carvally House is a magnificent old building renovated with love to detail and style. I felt very comfortable there. The breakfast was excellent and was beautifully presented. I would always come back for another visit if I go to the area in the future.
Tips for other travellers
Carvally House is in a quiet street and ideally located to go hiking and exploring this beautiful part of Scotland. It is very close to Stirling with major sights like the Stirling Castle and the William Wallace monument (Braveheart). The Gean House and the Inglewood House are historic buildings worthwhile looking at in Alloa. Alloa is easy to get to from Glasgow Central by train.

Tips for other travellers
Dined on reasonable vegetarian food in three different restaurants, all within walking distance of the house – Aldos, Mr Singhs and Coopers. Costa Coffee satisfied the caffeine need and even found a good barber opposite the swimming baths, before heading to the railway station for a quick visit to Glasgow.
Had intended to cycle on the cycle paths near the house but changed my mind because of strong winds and walked instead.

I visit Falkirk for work about once a month and travel to Alloa (approx 13 miles) to stay at Garvally House and would recommend anyone to do the same. The beds are the most comfortable you will ever sleep on and take a little extra time to enjoy the excellent breakfast.

Naomi and Michael welcomed us both into their lovely guest house, our room was huge ( the green room ) and a great walk in shower.
Breakfast was exceptional, fresh fruit home made yoghurt and breads, and of course fabulous cooked breakfast.
Nice touches, whiskey night cap for my husband and homemade cake for me !!
Thank you Naomi and Michael, keep it up 🙂

Business Trip – 1 Night Stay

I usually stay in hotels when away on business but opted for the Garvelly House based on the positive reviews. I syed in David’s Room positioned at the front of the property. The room exceeded expectations in that its amenities compare favourably to most 5 star hotels I have stayed in. Well proportioned room with large en-suite fitted with his and hers sinks, power shower.
The usual tea/coffee facilities but with a complimentary cake and tot of whisky which is a nice touch.

Hosts Michael and Naomi are very welcoming. Went to a great pub with its own beer and reasonably priced good food on Michaels’ advice. Naomi is a brilliant cook and provided a fantastic breakfast using their own produce and locally sourced ingredients. I travel the world on business and am struggling to remember a better breakfast anywhere.

Many thanks for an enjoyable stay.

We stayed for two separate nights during a tour of Scotland. It is very comfortable and well-appointed and the owners are very friendly and helpful. There are only two rooms so it is never very busy. The room we stayed in was large with a large en-suite shower room, the facilities were very good and everything was spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were also superb. We wouldn’t hesitate in returning here in the future.

Once in a while, its a pleasure to stay at an outstanding B&B. Garvally House offers a large room with bathrobe and sandals (hotel standard) provided. The breakfast offers four choice for main like smoked haddock, french toast with smoked salmon etc on top of the usual bacon, eggs and sausage combo. Michael and Naomi are helpful and offered good advice for dining options around Alloa. If you drive and am visiting Sitrling, Garvally House is clearly the best B&B around.

Getting into bed later that evening was like slipping into a cloud – I don’t know how she does it but the sheets were so soft that a god night’s sleep was a given! The bathroom was large, spotless and well equipped. There was even cake and a wee dram awaiting my arrival, which was a lovely surprise!

The hotel does not offer an evening meal, but the town is only a 5 minute walk away, and the sumptuous breakfast was worth getting up for! Michael even makes his own bread, which was delicious.

My negatives first: It is NOT easy to find without GPS, so be sure to get very precise directions. We ended up driving around for over an hour after an already-long drive!

Once we finally found it, it was lovely. We enjoyed some conversation and wine with the hosts, and had a nice dinner in a near-by Italian restaurant. The bed was very comfortable, and the shower was lovely. Breakfast was enough for 6, and everything was great. Naomi is a lovely hostess and cook.

Where do I start with this establishment?
Efficient and friendly first contact over the phone when I made my booking. Clear directions on how to get to Alloa by train and then from the station to Garvally House.
A short walk and no need for a taxi unless you have heavy luggage.
Simply stunning house. Huge high-ceiling rooms. Classy decor and yet retains a homely feel.
The bedroom was stunning. Absolutely HUGE bed with two different duvets – one on each side of the bed so a choice of weight and warmth. Plenty of very comfortable pillows. Fabulous and classy decor. Wardrobe with plenty of proper hangers. None of these annoying hangers that you cannot remove and properly hang your clothes on.
Dressing gowns provided.
The other cabinet in the room contained a bit TV, hospitality tray, a decanter of whisky and pretty little glasses.
Also home made fruit cake with butter icing. Amazing.
Dressing table, hairdryer and magazines by the bed. One side of the bed has magazines designed to appeal to men e.g. car racing and the other side of the bed has magazines likely to appeal to women.Absolutely beautiful and thick curtains.
The bathroom is also huge and has 2 sinks and a fab shower including a rain shower.
But the toiletries have to be seen to be believed. They even provide toothpaste x 2 plus lovely shampoos/conditioners/facecloths etc. Real 5 star quality.
I usually don’t have breakfast but I had a long working day ahead of me that day so decided to have breakfast and was so glad that I did.
Beautiful fresh fruit with yoghurt (home made by Michael). Poached eggs cooked to perfection. Gorgeous fresh break and honey. Michael keeps bees.
Beautiful dining room.
The hosts Naomi and Michael are perfect hosts. Friendly but certainly not intrusive and really can’t do enough for you.
I regretted that I was working that day. It would have been wonderful to have stayed in that gorgeous bed and then strolled down to breakfast to be eaten at leisure.
Perhaps for another day.
Thank you Naomi and Michael.

I only spent one night at Garvally House but I would happily go back again if in the area. I read nothing but good reviews in advance of my booking and my experience was excellent as well. The owners, Michael and Naomi, were very accommodating hosts but not intrusive. Michael provided good local recommendations for both a restaurant and a golf course nearby and went out of his way to help. Breakfast was excellent, the room was comfy and quiet — what more do you need? I stayed in a room without an en suite bathroom but had a large, modern, private bathroom just outside of the door so this was more than adequate.

The location is about 15 minutes from the center of Stirling and less than an hour’s drive from Edinburgh. Highly recommended.
