Lovely hotel. Staff pleasant and very helpful. Big double king-size bed in comfortable room. Just down the road from Stirling Castle. And near all amenities. Had a lovely 2 night stay with a bottle of prosecco in room and a voucher for 2 proescco's at the bar. Great value for money.

This hotel is in a great location, very close to the town centre and within a 10 minute (uphill) walk to Stirling castle. We had the afternoon tea, which was delicious, too much to finish so it was boxed up for us! The rooms were clean, very comfy bed, great shower. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Breakfast was lovely, great choice and piping hot when it was served.

Came for two nights with my wee boy. We really enjoyed our stay. Couldn’t get a better location, right next to the old town jail and Stirling castle and a minute from centre. Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Would’ve scored ‘excellent’ except our deluxe room was pretty standard - for example, no water, robes, view etc. Also had a very disappointed wee boy on the Friday evening when the steak he had been looking forward to for dinner was full of fat. And had to explain our package a few times to the restaurant staff too for a correct bill. But apart from that, couldn’t fault it and I’d definitely go back.

...I decided to have a Mojito which will always be remembered as 'watter knocked stupit!' - it was tasteless and £8! Then the Eton Mess dessert after dinner was such a disappointed: the 'carmelised meringue' (which incidentally was the deal-breaker!) was in fact a cheap, shop-bought broken up nest! Now we have the negatives out of the way, let's concentrate on the MANY positives: awe-inspiring building still steeped in the authentic character of the old school style. Delightful court yard bar. Bonus that our room was ready on arrival at 12:30 pm which enabled us to settle in before our Spa booking at 1:30. (We were lucky to get this slot so a good tip would be to book your spa time when booking your room) The pool is a fair size for a swim (albeit on the cool side) the sauna wasn't in operation but the jacuzzi was and it was just lovely - and warm. The room was fine and served its purpose on all aspects as did the dining, both at breakfast and dinner. Must mention the lovely girls waiting tables at dinner - they were attentive, friendly and very professional. We had a great two night break at the Stirling Highland Hotel and would totally recommend it.
