We recently stayed at the hotel on a last minute overnight getaway; saw Stirling Highland and thought we would treat ourselves. we left with a feeling of being slightly deflated. Friends asked us how the hotel was and we replied 'well it was ok, but, well it was just ok' maybe our expectations were too high. The room was a... More

Girls in the spa were great and we all enjoyed a couple of treatments. Good sized pool as well. We were also given a private... More

This hotel is supposed to be one of the best, and definitely most expensive hotels in Stirling. Still, for a five star hotel, the room is extremely small, breakfast buffet is poor and the wifi reception is terrible. My stay is for 4 nights but I doubt I will go there again.

Went for a spa day with 3 of my friends, hotel is lovely and in a nice location. Also had lunch there which was beautiful. Our treatments were excellent, nice quiet rooms too for them, we were all really pleased. Would definitely go back.

Very nice hotel extremly well located (nearby the castle) The room was comfortable and the staff friendly. The breakfast and the dinner at the restaurant were both excellent. The price is a little bit too high, though (as usual in Scotland).

Stayed 12 nights for Commonwealth Games. Comfortable, top floor Premium room with view over Stirling towards the hills. Helpful and friendly reception staff. We had many early starts and late nights so limited restaurant experiences but what we did have was very good. Excellent breakfast buffet - usually very busy but cheerful and friendly staff kept "topping up". Room service... More

This hotel is in a fabulous position, high up not far from the castle, you get fantastic views. Each window is like a different picture. The building is an old school with lots of character. The rooms are a good size, very clean and the bathrooms are modern. We happened to be in Scotland when the temperatures were hitting 28/29... More
