We had two rooms which were spacious and quiet and had en suites. My only issue was that the beds were hard and the showers had no pressure. Neither great when you are travelling long distances by car each day...

We had a lovely overnight stay in the family room. Very friendly owner on arrival. We had no issues with taking our shoes off at the door of the room, everywhere was warm and it is literally the best breakfast I have ever had, for me it was all cooked to perfection. We would def. go back if we're up... More

Stayed with John at Hillview Cottage for the first time last year, we came back this year with our wee daughter. It's a good spot, nearby Stirling. Stirling area has a lot to offer. Hillview Cottage is a perfect B&B, with a very friendly owner, John. Rooms are good, clean, with bathroom. Breakfast in the morning, just perfect. We will... More

When booking our hotels & B&B's for our trip to Scotland & Europe, to be honest, I was a bit hesitant and skeptical reserving from an ocean away. I spent hours searching and reviewing places to stay. Hillview Cottage did not disappoint! Located (and easily found with GPS) in the quiet countryside of Stirling, Scotland, proprietor John Darby has opened... More

The positives were: nice surroundings, reasonable rates, a good breakfast and friendly clients at the breakfast area. We may have stayed till after 10 am as the host had a family issue to deal with. But the general vibe is that he would probably come back and ask you to leave on his terms anyway (no thanks). The negatives were:... More

John welcomed us at the door and made us feel very welcome. Rooms were clean and well cared for. Large lounge and dining area. Lovely breakfast was served promptly when we got up. Very homely with fascinating items of interest.

Stayed at Hillview Cottage while attending Commonwealth Games. Found the owner an excellent host, the rooms provided all that was required and the breakfast sets you up for the day. Would be happy to return.

Owner had my husband move our car several times because he was not straight enough between the lines in the parking area. No shoes were allowed to be worn in your room. We had no towels or glasses and could not find any towels. Beds left little to be desired. We had to leave early to catch an early flight... More

Excellent position for exploring this part of Scotland, John the owner, very knowledgeable with local information. Huge cooked breakfast, nothing is too much trouble. Bed could do with a better mattress, but all facilities as they should be.
