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.

Booked this through an iriison voucher, it was so worth ever penny. The accessible room was a bit small and wouldn't accommodate a wheelchair. The bed was very comfortable. Would recommend the pool, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. Disappointed with the spa as I asked if I needed to book in advance, got no reply to 2 emails and then... More

We stayed through a groupon which was fantastic value for money. Would love to have stayed longer, but standard room price was a bit too high for... More

The Stirling Highland hotel is very nice located in an old interesting building. Rooms and facilities are good and staff is friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for a visit to Stirling. Short walking distance to the main attractions. A bit expencieve though.

Stayed for one night on Itison deal - B&B with 3 course dinner & glass of champagne and and it was very good value for money. The room was nice although getting wee bit tired looking in places (bedside tables, drawers). The bathroom could definitely do with a make over - very old fashioned but had everything we needed. Unfortunately... More

After passing through Stirling a few times we decided to spend a few days and chose this hotel as we like buildings with character and history. The staff, from receptionist to restaurant and housekeeping could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The double standard rooms are of an adequate size, are clean and have heated towel rails which I... More

Booked this hotel online - £330 for a deluxe room for 2 nights, dinner both nights and breakfast both mornings. Room was amazing - 3 windows with super views. Food was first class - lots of choice for dinner and breakfast with great customer relations from the chap I presumed was the restaurant manager. Leisure facilities are great - pool... More

Overnight stay at hotel for special occasion. Hotel well appointed. Had paid to upgrade room in advance, glad I did as even then it was fairly basic. Bathroom ok, but poor pressure on shower. Had great 3 course meal at night, good choice for vegetarians too. Used spa and pool, fairly small but fine for our needs. Had spa day... More
