We were booked into this hotel for 10 nights in August. Our 1st room was so small that we could barely pass each other. When you flushed the toilet it sounded like a ship's horn blasting. The furniture was broken and dirty. We switched rooms the following day. The wall paper was ripped, the toilet didn't flush if too many... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding reception and stayed at the Golden Lion hotel last night and we were overwhelmed by the helpfulness of the staff and the treatment we received. As soon as we arrived at the hotel yesterday afternoon the staff were attentive to our specific requirements and set up the hall perfectly for us in no... More

The hotel is a beautiful historic bulding. Very reasonable price for the experience and friendly staff. Walking distance to Stirling Castle in the city centre. Decent breakfast, parking available, free wi-fi and clean bedroom. I would stay there again.

Picked this hotel for location. Very central to everything we wanted. Expected a bit more for the price. Definitely needs updating, very worn and tired. The plus was the room was a good size. Breakfast was ok lots to choose from, couldn't content to wi -fi with password. Probe wouldn't stay there again unless renovated.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights on a business trip. Yes the hotel including the bedrooms and bathrooms could do with some serious updating but there is an element of old world glamour here. It almost has a quaint historical feel to it. If it were to be updated as some reviews have suggested I think it wouldn't... More

Stayed here on business and chose it mainly for location. Reception was ok but more brusque than welcoming. Wifi was a bit of a struggle and I had to help another guest a bit later in the evening. Lift says its for eight people but that's a laugh - one lift for five floors makes it a long wait. Rooms... More

We stayed for a whole week in this very nice hotel. The staff was friendly and helped us where ever they could. The breakfast was really top. Although the rooms really need some updating, they were clean and comfortable. We stayed there with a party of a 100 people from all over the world, members of the International Police Association,... More

Started off with a rather prolonged wait on check in but when quickly given our rooms I was pleased as it had been a long day. On going into the room the floor looked dirty - as it had not seen a vacuum cleaner but worse to come when I went into the bathroom! Apart from the bathroom floor being... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment and our apologies again for this, It was explained our maintenance Team were in the bathroom replacing a faulty cistern , however a lack of communication between them and Housekeeping prevailed, hence the situation that arose and your allocated room wasn't checked after said works I have discussed this with them accordingly...

We booked this hotel for a short trip to Scotland. The reception area was quite nice but our room looked as if it had been painted, albeit badly, and was in need of a full refurbishment. The breakfast was also a disappointment, the choice was limited and the sausages had little or no taste. The hotel is in an ideal... More

Nice hotel to stay in, short walk from all the shops, and plenty round it if you would rather have a few drinks, however I don't think I would stay in this hotel again as I feel it is over priced and this is due to Location
