Although we had driven past Stirling many, many times and admired the castle from the motorway this was our first visit which was decided by the fact we wanted to be in Scotland for the Referendum; and thought Stirling/Bannockburn would be ideal on our way to Aberdeen. The Highland Hotel did not disappoint. It was formerly a school and the... More

Just spent a lovely weekend at this hotel. We also attended the Bloody Scotland events that were on at the hotel. We like the hotel and don't think it's as bad as some people make out in their reviews. Our room was on the top floor so we had great views, it was a good size and very clean. Food... More

I have stayed at this charming former school many times and each time I return I see a continual deteroriation in standards. There has been attempts to paint the bathrooms in a very amateur fashion, the tiles need regrouting and it has generally seen better days. If I was the Headmaster of the hotel my report would be summarised as... More

Just returned after a lovely weekend in this hotel. Location is excellent, and there is ample parking for residents ( although this wasn't managed when we were there and its possible that non residents may also park) The room we had was a premier, but I think this was only because it had a view of Stirling from the window,...

The building itself is a beautiful old building and the views from the rooms, hallway and restaurant are stunning. Check in was easy and the staff were friendly. We were able to book a table for dinner with no problems and found our room easily. The room was in need of an upgrade - the carpet is, quite frankly, hideous!... More

Fantastic hotel, with highly trained staff. This is the second time that we had our development team training day at the hotel and cannot fault anything. From the check-in to the rooms were fantastic. We have also had stayed overnight as we had booked for the Christmas Gala night and have booked again for this year. A fantastic time was... More

Nice location Room quality. It's like travelling back to 1985. Rooms are dated and tired. Bathrooms are poor. The place needs to complete modernisation. Price. Very expensive for what you get. Food. Average Should have wifi but I couldn't connect to it.

The hotel is in a great location with good facilities. But what made it exceptional was the staff. They were all beyond courteous; they were friendly, engagingly pro-active and very helpful. The staff made this hotel a great value.

All the staff are welcoming and the food was excellent. Fabulous value for money and stunning setting. Perfect. We had been let-down by a hotel we were supposed to be staying with for Fri/Sat/Sun, so, as we had booked the SHH for the Sunday night as a mini present to ourselves we thought we would try there. I am so... More

Visited for a spa weekend break in a premier room. Room was lovely and food excellent. The treatments I received as part of my package were brilliant. Staff friendly and very helpful. Although the price was a tad more than I'd usually pay for a weekend away with friends it was worth it.
