Very nice B&B with lovely interior. Wonderful host and delicious breakfast. We got a free upgrade and got the family room as double room. The room and the bathroom were spacious but cosy. Recommendable!

My wife and I stayed at this B&B for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed staying here. It is within easy walking distance to town, Stirling Castle and restaurants/cafés. The Old Tram House is very clean and tidy and the rooms are well laid out and spacious, but not overly large. Our host was always very friendly and helpful and welcomed... More

We stayed one night at the Old Tramhouse B&B. We were warmly welcolmed and provided with a tour of the establishment and information about Stirling. The room was beautifully furnished in French Provincial style with some added extra treats. We walked into town, around 20 mins, and had a great meal at Brea. Breakfast was lovely with the dining table... More

I stayed here with a friend the last week of July 2015 in room #1. We both liked the room a lot. It was fairly big, clean and the decor was well executed and the furniture was elegant and comfortable. Slept well in beds with good mattresses. Food was good and kept us going all day (a traditional Scottish breakfast... More

In April 2014, we travelled around Northern England and Southern Scotland. We are a family of 5 from Australia and at the time our boys were 11, 9 and 7. The Old Tram House was (despite some stiff competition) the best B&B we stayed in anywhere in the UK. The room was comfortable and immaculate and accommodated the 5 of... More

This was our second stay here and it was our preferred accommodation after our first visit in 2011. Alison makes her guests feel at ease and she goes well beyond what many B&B operators will do to help her guests have an enjoyable holiday. There is lots of choice on the breakfast menu and the preparation and presentation is excellent.... More

We spent two nights here with another couple in late May 2015. The location was convenient to the sights and the free parking was a plus. The bus lines stop just a short few blocks from the B & B which make it easy to go and come from town. The castle and town center is about a 10-15 minute... More

Very comfortable B&B just outside downtown Stirling. The Town Centre is a reasonable walk although the Castle is quite up hill for most people. Great window view of the Wallace Monument (Room 4). Great hostess and very good breakfast.

We stayed at The Old Tram House on our first night in Scotland and it couldn't have been a better choice! The twin room was quite large and decorated beautifully, the breakfast was delicious, and Alison was a wonderful hostess. The location is great being within walking distance of the castle, and we enjoyed wandering through the historic parts of... More
