I stayed here for one night on business and was very pleased. A warm, no fuss welcome and a compact, cozy room met my needs perfectly. The breakfast was fine too. I ate in the bar and my evening meal was grand. Nothing fancy but did the job. The hotel is very historic and some nice touches remain. Didn't get... More

There is a car park which is hard to find and by the time you get to the front of the hotel you will have driven past the car park entrance and to get back there is a huge track around the one way system. The wifi is only useable in the entrance area. There is a lift which is... More

Passing by Stirling and found this hotel in City Centre. Private parking behind hotel. Friendly staff. Hotel is worn after many years of service but it is nice place to stay. Good food and nice breakfast buffet. Would love to see this hotel going back to its glory days

The hotel is centrally located with on site carpark. You will need instructions from reception on how to find it through the one way system and don't forget to ask for the code to get back out. The room rate came with breakfast which was an ample and varied buffet with hot and cold options. The room was very clean... More
