Attached to Stirling Castle, Scotland, fantastic accommodations, outstanding food, superb service and the pub, well, I've died and gone to heaven. Make sure you pick room #1 for the best view of the castle.

After travelling to Loch Awe for a few nights, we decided to stay in Stirling for a night to break up the journey home. The Portcullis Hotel is right next door to the castle and has amazing views of the town. On arrival we found that all the parking bays were full as unfortunately people park in front of the... More

Stayed there in Sept 2014 and loved it. Lots of value for the money, very unique setting, formally an old school. Directly next to the castle. Twisting narrow staircases add to the charm, do not go if you're expecting a cookie cutter hotel. This place is special, mainly because of Jamie and his staff. They make you feel like family.

We went here on the recommendation of locals. The service was very friendly and efficient. The meal was lovely and there was plenty of attention to detail with the decoration on the plate. We had tried to get in here a couple of weeks ago but it was fully booked. It does appear to be a busy place so we... More

Wi fi was available free, and aTV with restricted channels. The meals I had at the hotel were excellent, and the last breakfast I had was a real... More

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
