The room was large and the window opens to a huge farm. Although our room was next to the road and there was other guests but there was no noise issues as I... More

Did a self-drive trip around Scotland and stayed one night here. There was a slight miscommunication with the room booking but John, the owner, fixed it quick with no problems. We got the family room, which was spacious and clean, and with modern fittings in the bathroom. Wifi was spotty but otherwise everything else was great. Breakfast was a choice... More

We stayed two nights in this quiet and hospitable B&B. We valued the basic accomodation and friendly host. Englisch breakfast included. Having your own transport is almost a must, concerning its somewhat remote location.

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

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.
