Not happy with the service, shame I've had to give such a low rating but this is down to staff, initial service given by the woman on reception who clearly should not work in hospitality and overpriced rates. We arrived 30 minutes before check in and told our room was not ready till 3pm, okay no problem, so we take...

What a fabulous venue set in a stunning building and location, with views to behold.... Rooms are amazing, service is on tap, like the beer, with a warm welcome from the lovely Emma. Thank you for a brilliant getaway, and hopefully see you soon.

There are fabulous views from the third floor. The staff were very friendly throughout our stay. We only ate breakfast in the hotel which cost £15 each. It was a buffet with plenty of...

Had a bar dinner at night, the table wasnt cleaned from the previous guest so had to look at bits of rice all night and the salt in the dispenser was damp. Went into the...

Can't praise the staff highly enough - excellent, friendly service throughout our stay. The quality of the food was also first class. The main building, built in the 19th century as Stirling High School, has been very successfully converted for hotel use, preserving enough of the original features to ensure a quirky scholastic feel, without compromising on the requirements for...

Two day break with friends did not disappoint. Friendly welcome with a roaring log fire burning in the background. We were presently surprised by the standard of our evening meal which was included. Lots to choose from the menu and the food was excellent. Waiting staff were well trained - attentive when required but not "hovering" over us. The original...

Stayed for 3 nights & from friendly welcome to leaving everything was first class. Room was a little tired but clean & spacious. Leisure facilities were excellent with free coffee & biscuits. Good breakfast with pleasant & helpful staff contributed to really good break.

We purchased a deal from 5pm for a D,B&B overnight stay. We stayed on the 28th January. Hotel was lovely and in a great area, really handy for the local shops/bars etc.The room was clean a little cold but this was resolved when we turned up the heating. Rubbish view of the car park, despite requesting a high room with...
