We arrived in Stirling far too late to find accommodations. We were very tired and wanted a nice place to stay for the night. We went to the reception at the Golden lion and the receptionist told us that no rooms were available at this time. Sensing our distraught she not only recommended another hotel but got on the phone... More

We were given the Wallace Room for our group of around 20 for Saturday night dinner and party night which was just perfect.

Stayed for two nights on 5 and 6 Feb. 3 of us stayed in two rooms. The twin room was large and comfortable with lovely views over the city. The single room was smallish but had a larger than usual single bed and had everything I needed. Breakfast was good. The staff were very friendly. I was particularly impressed with... More

Just to warn anyone expecting hot water for a bath when full this hotel cannot provide enough for all guests. We spent 2 hours trying to get hot water and could not the assistant manager advising that "to keep trying" as the hotel was "too busy" and supply outweighed demand. If you cannot provide enough don`t take too many bookings!... More

Thankyou for taking the time to comment on your recent stay, our apologies you were unable to obtain hot water in your room, this has been investigated and unfortunately no fault can be found. I would note your comment has nothing to do with supply and demand as there is always sufficient hot water 24 hours a day throughout the... More

Historic hotel in the heart of historic Stirling. One of Scotland’s most famous sons, poet Robert Burns stayed here. He actually penned a poem about nearby Stirling Castle during one of his residencies. Indeed, no trip to Stirling is complete without a visit to the above mentioned castle and the National Wallace Monument; dedicated to Scotland’s most famous nationalist, patriot... More
