This is not a bad hotel. It is not a great one either. Reception. Usual check in. No issues really Room. Room was on the first floor. As it was very warm I had the windows open and unfortunately I was above some air con units. Very noisy. I went to reception to request a fan for the room to... More

Rooms could be more "up to date" but they are spotlessly clean and nice .The overall feeling is great and the location could not be better. Certainly for people who seek a place in the middle of historic Scotland !

The hotel was very traditional which was what I expected and very clean. The rooms were lovely and clean. The staff were flawless, from check in, housekeeping to waiting staff in the restaurant. Restaurant manager had a... More

Staff were very pleasant and helpful and allowed us to move room due to noisy neighbours! If possible ask for a room that isn't interconnecting and that looks onto the courtyard as this was nice and quiet. Dinner was delicious with friendly waiting staff however breakfast was a bit expensive for all it was! The spa facilities are also quite... More

stayed one night on DBB deal as gift from family. Hotel is in an excellent location for visiting the castle and also the shopping centre. Plenty of free parking available in hotel courtyard. The history of the hotel adds to the interest of the stay with plaques on walls around the hotel with information on its past. The room was... More

I was very disappointed with the standard of this hotel. Yes looks wonderful from the outside but definitely not the case once inside. Supposedly upgraded to a deluxe room I dread to think the condition of the standard room. Our room was very, very shabby with torn wallpaper, a bathroom door which had been badly patched as it had previously... More

There is no doubt this is a great hotel in a great location in Stirling, it's history and architecture is a beautiful sight but it is also its downfall. It was so hot in some of the public areas that they had to bring in air conditioning units to try and cool the restaurant and bar cool enough to be... More

The location, staff, and building are all wonderful. Do be aware of one potential drawback when making a room request. My husband and I were placed in a handicapped room, although we did not request it and did not need it. In order to accommodated wheelchairs in the shower, the floor is completely flat; there is no lip on the... More

Spent one night here and found it a pleasant experience. The fact that it was a grammar school is evident within the open reception area and the long corridors with old classrooms leading off them, all with new uses. The bedroom was a reasonable size but a bit dark and slightly dated, some TLC needed all round. The bed was... More
