We were looking for a room in Glasgow but a concert meant every hotel was full so we diverted to Stirling. The hotel was originally a school - and the history of it is evident all over the hotel. A real plus if you like a sense of history - which we do. Our room was situated on the 2nd... More

Husband and I stayed for the weekend. Very welcoming and friendly. Nice room, bathroom fine, slightly tired out shower. Breakfast was buffet, nice and fresh. Staff were really nice and attentive. Downfalls were, the bed was a bit too slept in so we both never slept great. The corridor noise of people even just walking past is loud. Also the... More

This hotel was full of character, being a converted school. One block from "Stirling Castle". The rooms were large and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the restaurant room was average and that aspect would benifit from a renovation. Most of the hotel does not have lifts that service the floors. Parking is also a problem as... More

Great bottle of wine, a couple of large water bottles and a yummy fruit platter welcomed us with a card wishing us a happy 30th anniversary. Nice! The room and bed were super comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. The location was perfect and between town and the castle. The only thing negative I noticed was a bit of wallpaper... More

Visited on Sunday had a great afternoon tea then dinner. Room was spacious clean and warm. Nice robes and slippers and a great view from room 310. Next mornings breakfast was excellent with a great range of food. We normally stay in The Carlton but it was royal highland show weekend so it was a change for us to visit... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend for one night, dinner, bed & breakfast. Really nice hotel situated in a charming old building minutes from Stirling Castle. Rooms were large and well appointed, comfy bed and nice bathroom. Restaurant was excellent for dinner and did not disappoint for breakfast. Would definitely return.

Perfectly tidy, clean and pleasant hotel in great historical architecture & city. The striking experience that spoiled it for me is the early morning alarm call that never materialised. No maps of the City at the desk. Guess they assume everyone uses a smart phone. The coffee at breakfast tasted like dishwater, which is a shame as staff are very... More

We stayed here in May 2015 for a weekend to tour Stirling which we had driven past many times but never visited. The hotel is very central, being close to the Castle. This meant that the views from the hotel windows were far-seeing. I was apprehensive because of a number of negative reviews, but it turned out to be needless.... More

We'd booked a 2 day DBB stay through Travelzoo and didn't know what to expect of our accommodation. The Hotel used to be a Hospital then converted to a Primary and High School - with an array of celebrated old pupils displayed with Scottish Pride on the Hotel walls. It has a quadrangle parking area inside the entrance so is... More

....I would like to say how helpful the team here were. As my in-laws were staying here over Father's Day, I called the reception desk from my work-place - Saudi Arabia - to ask if they could help me organise something special. My wife's parents (and my wife and I) were delighted to wake up to a lovely picture of... More
