Stayed here on a dinner bed and breakfast deal, on arrival the reception is lovely with plenty of seats and the reception staff were very efficient. Our room was on the fifth floor and there you would think you were in a different hotel, rooms were very dated, old furniture, tv sitting on a tiny table below the size of... More

I attended a 50th Birthday celebration in the ballroom of the Golden Lion on May 9th. What a delightful venue with the most wonderful staff. From the decor to the magnificent catering, helpful, efficient bar staff, (and really reasonable bar prices for a hotel)I could not fault any aspect of the function. We had an event manager at the party... More

Stayed here for a night out in Stirling. The reception area is very spacious with a lot of seating. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and check in was easy. Our room was large and had a double bed, a sofa, chair and a coffee table, so ample space. The bathroom looked recently refurbished although I had a problem... More

Stayed here this week for 2 nights on business. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful as were all the other staff. The reception area, bar area and restaurant areas all look fresh, clean and inviting with various places to sit. Slightly different story as you head to your room. Whilst the room itself was clean and the bed comfortable,... More

Very good central hotel with nice and helpful staff. Would use this hotel again as it is very close to all the shops and tourist attractions . The food was also very good with a wide choice available.

I tried to check in at 1.30 to find check in wasn't permitted until 2pm. There was no where for me to get changed for an afternoon wedding - I was advised to use the disabled toilet and leave my bags at reception until I checked in later. I asked if their was somewhere secure for my handbag, it was... More

When looking to book, the lady we spoke to on the phone was quite abrupt & put the phone down whilst we were in the middle of thanking them for their help. Hotel was £80 if we were to book on phone but user booking.com & got a room for about £56. Nice bar & reception area, all staff I... More

Rooms variable. Room 213 dark overlooking granite walls and fire escape, plumbing seemed to be like hotel opened in 1786. Shower temperature could not be regulated at all - very dangerous could be far too hot or stone cold. No gripper handles on bath and rubber mat only supplied when requested. Lighting not working in room on last day of... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Bathroom quite small, with shower over bath, slippy and no hand rails. Breakfast very disappointing, bacon cold, even when the chef brought in fresh, vegetables at dinner very under cooked. Hotel in handy position. WI-FI not good at all. Enjoyed my stay, but quite a few improvements needed.
