We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in June as we were visiting Stirling Castle. Driving up to the Hotel it looks absolutely majestic with a sprawling lawn leading up to it and a long, winding road to drive up to the entrance. The staff on reception were friendly and check in was completed in no time at all and we were welcomed with one of their delicious choc chip cookies to take to our room and have with a cuppa. Our room was on the 3rd floor right next to the elevator, which we did not hear at all during our stay. The room itself was very run down, the bed was awful to sleep in, you could feel every spring, even though a thick mattress cover was used, all the furniture was chipped and it all looked tired and in need of refurbishment. What disturbed us the most were the awful stains on the carpet. When we opened the door to the bathroom we just said 'wow', the bathroom was huge and was obviously very new with a separate shower and bathtub and very modern basin, it only needed a shelf for our toiletries and it would have been absolutely perfect. We had a wonderful view over the front lawns and rhododendrons that were in full bloom and a view of the front entrance and so were able to watch the Bagpiper piping in the bridal party that arrived, so that was a treat to witness. Our package included breakfast and dinner. The continental breakfast was fine, just very spread out, so you had to walk all over the dining room to gather your food, which was slightly annoying. The staff were fabulous at every meal and very attentive. Dinner was absolutely top notch, very tasty and could not be faulted. Overall a pleasant stay.
