“Marshmallow Bed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

My partner & I stayed in this hotel 2 nights ago & got the best night sleep in a long time. We had a lovely room with a seperate living area & a huge shower. We never had dinner at Broomhall but that was only because we ate at another place during our long drive down there. But the dinner menu looked superb. I will try the venison the next time we visit though. All the staff were lovely, very friendly & very helpful. My partner & I had a wee walk round Menstrie in the evening. Lovely & quiet. Just what we needed. Went to the local pub & everyone there was welcolming. Would have stayed for the local quiz night which we were invited to partake but after our 3 hour drive we were quite tired. We retired to bed later on that night & I felt I was in a giant marshmallow because of the quality of the bed, sheets & pillows. Sounds weird I know but it was great. I've been to many hotels in the past but nothing compares to Broomhall beds. We kept the window open during the night (The room was cosy but not stifling) & were woken up by the birds singing. We usually waken up to seagulls squawking! Constantly! So it was a very pleasant change. Breakfast was lovely. We aren't breakfast lovers but we had a wee taste on what was to offer & enjoyed it. I did have a look at another tables breakfast & the full breakfast looked delicious. Enjoyed it especially since we were seated in a corner window so we could enjoy the sights of the lovely surroundings.
Best hotel I have stayed in yet & I've stayed in some lovely hotels but Broomhall wins hands down because of the excellent staff, beautiful surroundings & the 'Marshmallow Bed'.
Definately recommend Broomhall to others.
P.s. My rating for the fitness centre is excellent. There is no fitness centre at Broomhill but outside is the Ochils, how much more do you want?

Room Tip: Ask for a four poster bed & a bath. We had a sled bed which was very comfy but would have liked...

Stayed at Broomhall Castle overnight recently and can't recommend it enough. Building is beautiful (with very interesting history). Room was absolutely gorgeous and huge!! Large
roll-top bath with separate walk-in shower in the bathroom. We had dinner in the hotel and the food was delicious (good selection on menu). David made sure our entire stay was enjoyable and the whole time was so relaxing and enjoyable. An excellent hotel and we will definitely return.

Just back from a night in Broomhall Castle.We were there for a birthday celebration for our friend .We booked the two fourposter bed rooms and we were not disappointed.The staff were very attentive always making sure that everything was ok during our stay.Breakfast was fab all freshly cooked and served on nice hot plates ( a pet hate of mine).Would definately stay again and would recommend the castle to friends and family.

We stayed at the castle for 2 nights. Upon arrival we were greeted and shown to our room. We were surprised and very pleased as we had been upgraded to the four poster bedroom. The room was very spacious and the ensuite had a walk in shower and also a seperate roll top bath, again very spacious. As it was Scotland in January it was very cold outside but thankfully very warm in the bedroom and public areas of the hotel.
Included in the room rate was breakfast. We both really enjoyed the breakfast which was very traditionally Scottish which included Haggis, Black Pudding and square sausage which was just what we both needed before a full days sighseeing.
The castle is a good base to stay due to it's location for visiting Stirling, Edinburgh and St Andrews.
The castle is visually stunning and very good value for money when you compare what you get here compared to another bed and breakfasts or other small hotels.
We spoke with one of the owners over breakfast who was very frindly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.
If we return to this area again we would have no hesitation in coming back to this charming place to stay.

Myself and my partner booked Broomhall after deciding we fancied a weekend away somewhere with a bit more character than the usual modern city centre hotel and it certainly delivered. (We were even lucky enough to see two small deer wandering around outside our window)

We decided to pay that little bit extra and book the four poster suite, we were given room 3 which we were later informed was the bridal suite. A very nice room, huge comfortable bed and a spacious bathroom with a lovely bath. We both had a great nights sleep although if I was to say one negative thing it would be that the radiators were constantly making noise throughout the night.

We decided to have our evening meal in the hotel restaurant and were delighted to be given a free bottle of moet as we were in the bridal suite, a really nice touch we both thought. The food and the restaurant itself were both lovely and clearly cooked with top quality ingredients. The three course menu was worth every penny. The breakfast in the morning was also great and a perfect way to start the day (not too greasy and perfectly cooked)

I'd definitely recommend Broomhall Castle to anyone and look forward to returning in the future.

My husband and I loved Broomhall. We were sort of in a miserable mood - we had flown in that morning to Edinburgh after an overnight flight from the US and my husband's bag was missing. He didn't have any clothes to change into or jackets for 2 days (thankfully the bag finally showed up). We stayed at Broomhall that first night and Ian was quick to help anyway he could. Since it was a Sunday, everything was closed unfortunately, but he even offered to go shopping for us at whatever store was open. He didn't take him up on the offer, but it was quite generous and thoughtful. The bedroom was very spacious and clean and the bathroom, I was in love with. The food for dinner and breakfast was exceptional. We were told the B&B had wireless internet, but we never could get a signal, even in the bar where it was supposed to be the strongest since the walls are so thick. We also weren't used to not having washcloths (maybe that is a US thing - guess we are spoiled). All in all, we would definitely recommend to others.

Wash clothes is something we have never had but always worth looking into the little things.. hope the bags showed up eventually.. and the wireless is the thorn in our side.. sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't... but wouldn't change the stone walls for anything.. so sorry if lack of internet caused any problems for you during your stay.. Hope you had a safe trip back stateside and hopefully see you again one day
