Used to love the portcullis so when we were looking to book a table for our wedding anniversary meal, this was our obvious choice. Very dark, which it's always been like - but certain bulbs weren't working, 5 mins would take to change them and maybe help brighten the place up. One young man that worked there just looked like...

This was a gorgeous hotel in a very old building full of character. The room was small but we had the most magnificent view & large well appointed bathroom. The staff were amazing. We only stayed one night but they went to no end of trouble to make us feel at home. They immediately booked a table in their very... More

During our weeks stay in Stirling we came here twice and both times we had two great meals, lovely atmosphere and pleasant staff. Need to book a table to avoid disappointment, a must if your in the area and be prepared to leave rather full with their hearty meals.

My wife and I stayed at the Portcullis on 2/3 August 2014. On arrival we were welcomed by a very engaging young man called Jamie. He set the scene for a wonderful two nights. Lynne and her team at the Portcullis were fantastic. Meals were tasty and quickly served despite being very busy whilst we were there. We stayed in... More

We arrived late in the day to a warm welcome. Very comfortable room - although there are lots of stairs and no elevators, so be prepared. We left very early in the morning and asked if we could have a packed breakfast - the staff could not have been more helpful or considerate. Great location if you are interested in... More

We've just returned from a 3 night stay and we were pleasantly delighted with the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable with a marvelous view to the east (room 2). The breakfast was freshly cooked to order and there was a varied choice. The lunch snacks were also delicious, we didn't sample the evening meal though as we found... More

After a short train ride from Glasgow we returned for the second year in a row to this Hotel. Once again we were not disappointed. The staff and owners were polite and attentive and the food delicious. The view is stunning overlooking the City, and the Wallace Monument in the distance. We recommend you check this place out if in... More

This hotel is right at the top near the castle and was perfect to eat and drink in after walking around for a few hours. The food was lovely and the staff were really nice. The outside area is also perfect at this time of year

First time in Scotland and what a find! Warm welcoming staff, great service and what an ambiance around the place. From sleeping to dining and also the watering hole it was top notch. One of Scotland's best kept secrets.
