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.

Myself and my partner enjoyed a lovely meal in the portcullis on Tuesday April 29th. We had the steak and the garlic chicken with sweet chilli sauce both dishes were really good and no complaints. However..... We went outside to sit in the seated area with our drinks to witness not only 1 but 2 of the chefs come outside,... More

We stayed for 4 nights over the Easter holiday and were absolutely delighted with the welcome. We ate on two evenings and I can honestly say I've not had such a good steak for years. A fine selection of beer and whiskey just made it perfect. The room was very comfortable with a lovely soft mattress and a bathroom that... More

Stayed here with my son while visiting the University. Rooms were a good standard, a bit old-fashioned but comfy. If you need a posh modern room that's been the brainchild of a pretentious interior designer with bizarre dress sense, then don't pick the Portcullis. All the staff were friendly and attentive, whilst the breakfast was hearty and big enough even... More

What a fabulous place this is to stay and eat. We thought it was such a great find and were really sorry when the break was over and we had to leave. The staff are all really good at their jobs and you could mistake any of them as the owners, as they take so much interest in you as... More
