Reception staff were very friendly and made us welcome. Our room was on 1st floor. It was a good size, clean and cosy. The evening meal we had was excellent - we both felt that the staff in the restaurant 'went that extra mile' to make our dining experience perfect. Would definitely stay here again.

The staff, location and beauty of this hotel made it worth the stay..Short visit, but got up early and walked up to Stirling Castle, and the surrounding areas.The Cemetery was very interesting. The views for picture taking was outstanding.. Friendly, historic, good price. You couldn'the ask for a better place to lay your head.

Booked the Highland again as I wanted a Family Room. Was very dissapointed to find there had been a mix up with the booking and had to settle for a double with a single bed. They did adjust the price but I would have preferred they had advised me of the error in advance so that I could make alternative... More

Dinner bed and breakfast deal. The staff were very helpful, the food was absolutely excellent and they had a nice health suite. Other than the room being a little dated, mainly cosmetic, this hotel was great value for money and we would definitely go back.

Went to the hotel on a Wowcher Voucher and it was worth twice the amount. The hotel is in the old High School and it had a great atmosphere. The food was excellent and the staff were mostly local, nice change in the hospitality industry nowadays. Superb views over the town and up to the Ochil Hills.

I was in the area for work and stayed at the Stirling Highland for 4 nights. The room was clean and quiet. The breakfast was just excellent and the fact that they gave you complementary water and wine in your room was a real WOW!. I will definitely stay there again, given the opportunity.
