This was the second time we've stayed here, while visiting in the area. The hotel is historic, but clean and welcoming and the decor is very well finished. The room was airy and comfortable, beautiful modern bathroom. None of the 'grubby corners' that you sometimes find in very old buildings. Staff helpful friendly and efficient. Located slap bang in the... More

My family and I stayed here in February, whilst visiting the university. After a bit of trouble with parking which we found due to reading reviews on here, but could not get into due to issues with the intercom system. However after the slightly rocky start the hotel surpassed our expectations, with large clean rooms and a wonderful breakfast buffet.... More

I organised a coach booking for 58 people to stay here. Everyone from group booking through to reception, cleaning and restaurant staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Whatever I asked for the hotel did their best to accommodate me. The food was excellent with a choice of 3 dishes at every meal and the service was very good. The buffet... More

Service is average at best and the food is stale and unpalatable. Disabled facilities are shocking. Wheelchairs cant access the toilet in a wheelchair as the turn is too narrow and you block women trying to get in/out of the ladies, the lift to the car park for wheelchair access is so tiny only the wheelchair fits but what about...

The room was a good size and apart from no WiFi in the room had everything I required for my stay. The bar is pleasant enough albeit a real ale pump would be a good addition, breakfast was good. The only down side to the room was the sink which was partially blocked and was a bit of a pain... More

Parking at this hotel is awful - difficult to find, and no instructions on keypad. Car park was full, and difficult to manouvere, found a non-space at the side of a wall and hoped I wasn't blocking anyone in. There were two members of staff (kitchen and waiting/bar I assumed from the uniforms) outside smoking but offered absolutely no assistance... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hotel dates back to 1786, one of Stirling's first hotels filled with old world charm in a friendly environment. IN THE HEART of historic Stirling, the Golden Lion Hotel has for more than two centuries welcomed guests including royalty and even the national bard, Rabbie Burns (plaque on wall by front door in acknowledgement of his stay). Nowadays the ideal setting for leisure, business and special occasions, the family-owned Golden Lion provides traditional Scottish hospitality in thoroughly modern style. From the splendid buffet breakfast to the contemporary comforts of the 67 beautifully rooms and the timeless elegance of the stunning Regency Ballroom, this is a hotel with character as well as professional commitment. Close to magnificent Stirling Castle, and a short trip from the famous Monument to William Wallace, the Golden Lion makes an ideal base for the tourist. Practical advantages add to the appeal: the hotel’s city centre location - with free car parking - is only a few minutes drive from the national motorway network. The principal bus and rail stations are within easy walking distance(5 minutes)of the Golden Lion’s front door. There is an excellent choice of shops on the doorstep next to the Thistle indoor shopping Mall. The warmth of our welcome awaits you! Free WIFI available in all public & conference areas. ... more   less
