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

We are just home from our visit this weekend. We were on the 2nd floor and reception staff were very helpful and made sure we got a room with a bath. The hotel is in a fantastic location right next to the shopping centre and about 10 mins from the castle. There was plenty of choice at breakfast although the... More

We spent five nights in Stirling while visiting Scotland. It is a very walkable city topped with the famous castle. Aside from that it is central for side trips to the Lockes and not far from the Highlands. This hotel is right in the center with shops and a nice mall close by for non-walkers. The food is very good,... More

Food and entertainment were really good and well worth the money we paid for the xmas party night. Staff were very friendly and the meal service was first class. Hotel corridors are in need of a touch of paint but the room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated 5 mins from the train station and in the middle... More
