“Traffic noise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

I found the traffic noise to be very disturbing in room 48 and was not very well appointed. There was only one comfortable chair, no luggage rack and very little wardrobe space. I did mention to the desk clerk that we had had disturbed sleep due to traffic noise but she just smiled and said 'Oh dear'. There was only one hand towel for two guests.
I have stayed in Premier Inns before and this one does not match up to my previous stays in other Premiers.

This Premier Inn has recenty been refurbished to a very good standard.The room has nice new fittings and carpets,even smelt new.
Good location,just south of Stirling,well positioned for heading north into Scotland.
Although it is close to a motorway it was a quiet nights sleep.
Helpful reception staff and with a Brewers Fayre on site.We had a very good evening meal there but the breakfast is exceptional,everything you could want,Buffet style,with very helpful staff.

The beds were very comfortable particularly having a choice of pillow softness. A shortcoming is the provision of only one chair and very limited drawer space. Otherwise the room and en-suite were well decorated and kept very clean. The bathroom could benefit from some form of heating to prevent the mirror from misting over. The reception staff were very welcoming and efficient. The on-line booking procedure was easy to use. The food at the attached Pirnhall Inn is excellent and the quality of the breakfast outstanding. It is ideally located for visiting the many attractions around Stirling

Lovely hotel and very friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Beautiful setting in the countryside, with cows and sheep in the field right by the hotel.
Yes it is a mile or two outside of Stirling, but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel. It takes about 10 mins on the bus and costs £2.20. if there are more than two of you, then get a taxi, as that costs approx £6.00. Bus times on travelinescotland.com. Bus drivers were very nice and stopped outside the hotel on the way back from Stirling town.
rooms are a decent size and beds very comfy. Shower was fantastic. Loved the flat screen tv with Freeview.
There is a restaurant and bar right next to the hotel which is also very nice and handy for your Costa Coffee fix in the morning.
I will definately be staying here again, it was lovely to stay out in the countryside, yet very close to everything.
Weren't aware of noise from the motorway - don't let reviews that mention that put you off
I'll just say once more how lovely and helpful all the staff were. It makes all the difference :-)

We came in thinking the worst. But was surprised . The staff was excellent . The rooms were clean and were a good size. The restaurant that is next door was good. We had tea and breakfast there. The food and staff was excellent.
For the money you pay I think you can't go wrong staying here.

Stayed here for one night mid-week and whilst it was a comfortable room, we were aware of traffic noise coming from the motorway and the adjacent road. I was woken at 04:30 by inconsiderate banging of doors and couldn't get back to sleep - hardly a restful night.

Room Tip: Not sure if there is a good room in this hotel as you can hear the noise of the M9 on the carpark si...

The Premier Inn in Stirling is just off the M9, so convenient if you are driving through, but don't expect to get anywhere without driving, it's really outside of Stirling town. The proximity of the motorway means that you get some noise from the road all night, but it's not bad.

The building has a bit of a cheap motel character, but is clean, seems to be recently refurbished and the reception staff was friendly. We had booked the room as a family room with bedding for 4, which means that it gets pretty cramped with little room to leave your stuff. The proper double bed was really comfy, the kids beds weren't bad either. Wifi is only free for 30 minutes but reasonably strong.

Breakfast and dinner are in the onsite Brewers Fayre restaurant / pub. Extremely good calories for money ratio, but all tastes like bland convenience food. The breakfast is self service and gives you a good choice. There is a small playground next to the restaurant and tables to sit outside.

The plus point is really the value for money, this was the only family room we got in Scotland for less than 100 Pound a night!
