This is probably my favorite B&B I have stayed at in all my years of traveling. The hostess is very friendly and accommodating, but it doesn't stop there. The communal sitting room is very inviting. It is very light as it has windows on three sides giving way to the "King's Gardens" and the surrounding valley. Soft music is playing,... More

Everything has been already said on this excellent B&B: close to the castle, walking distance from the town, clean, cosy, a real flavour of Scotland, good breakfast, and so on and so forth. But what we loved most was the warm and friendly welcome by Laura, who seemed to be waiting for us as if we were friends, with a... More

Laura was a truly gracious host. Location was wonderful, easy walk to lovely Stirling, gorgeous Castle views. Big lounge to relax, visit, fabulous breakfast, assist with dinner reservations. Impeccable rooms, modern bath with every amenity. We have found a new base for our next trip to Scotland. Thank you Laura for such a warm welcome!

Laura runs a wonderful place with a nice living room, dvds for your room, patio walk outs and great down-home hospitality. The breakfast was also wonderful (thanks for mentioning that the bread is home made - we didn't want toast until you told us and we sure didn't regret it). There are walks through the woods to downtown and Laura... More

Castlecroft Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were nicely decorated, very clean, and had everything we needed. The bathroom was a nice size and also had everything we needed. Breakfast was great. The accommodations were excellent, but the best thing about the place is the hospitality of the hostess. Laura was friendly, helpful, and concerned... More

Very enjoyable B&B; owner Laura charming & personable. Room & ensuite very clean, comfortable & close to everything. Laura provided info in regards to our questions about available mass transit & different historical sites in Stirling as well as around Stirling. Would definitely stay here again & highly recommend.

This is the 5th time we have stayed at Castlecroft. As usual Laura gave us a very warm welcome with coffee a biscuits in the lounge. The premises have just had a makeover, not sure why as the premises was already first class. For anyone wanting a great B & B you will not find better.

Arrived after 5 hour train journey from London and were made very welcome by Laura. We had a nice cuppa in guest lounge which has wonderful views across to Trossachs which had snow on them. We then settled into our small but delightful room overlooking back garden. Castlecroft is well situated under Stirling Castle. Laura gave us a helpful map... More

We arrived hungry and after a walk in the dark and rain at the end of a long day out. Laura understood we didn't want to chat the noo, excusing us to dry off and get comfortable. Amd we did -- in our large room, with its warmth, generous window (that opens), and pretty wallpaper. Laura's sense of hospitality is... More

We stayed here at the start of our Scottish road trip and it was the perfect start. Laura the proprietor is warm and welcoming and goes out of her way to recommend places/restaurants etc. Wonderful view and a pleasant stroll into town. If you like B&Bs you will love this!
