Customer comments about Allan House, Bridge of Allan, UK - Central Scotland
Loved the high ceilings, decorative plaster work, retro decor and overall space. Easy walk to shops, restaurants and beautiful neighborhoods." Bill Gross and Jan Clarke
"Great! It was lovely to be able to walk to shops and even to the train. Sally was so nice as were the other people who live in the house. Comfortable beds. Nice and clean. Comfortable layout of the flat. Bathroom could have been better located, but certainly not a problem. My experience there could not have been better. I'd highly recommend it!"
