“Excellent base to explore Stirling”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

I stayed for 3 nights over a weekend in June. It was an good base to explore Stirling and the surrounding area. The house is very modern, the room spotlessly clean and well appointed. The ground-floor room with large window faced a quiet residential street, close to the main road into Stirling and was very comfortable. Annette is a friendly, yet unobtrusive host, always helpful with any request I had.
The breakfast was ok but nothing special. Forget the coffee, take the tea!

I would like to thank you for taking the time to write your review, although, I am slightly bewildered as to why you have commented on your stay in particular the breakfast and coffee as you didnt actually stay. You had to cancel your booking on the night due to work commitments!
Thank you Annette

My husband and I have recently returned from a two night stay at Abbeycraig - we were on a trip with his parents, both of whom are registered disabled (one has mobility problems, the other is partially sighted). Consequently, the fact that the property had a slope access plus ground floor rooms was a huge deciding factor in our decision to book.

The rooms were both bright and airy with comfy beds and fantastic power showers. The breakfast room was nicely laid out with a great selection of cereals, fruit and yoghurts plus the cooked breakfast/scrambled egg on toast was lovely. Annette was more than happy to keep topping up our toast and tea and so breakfast was a nice and relaxed start to the day.

The only reason for our overall rating of this property being very good instead of excellent is because of the lack of safety handrail alongside the slope/steps leading to front door... this meant that my father-in-law (who is partially sighted) had to rely on someone to help him enter/leave the house safely as he couldn't decipher where the path edge was. Obviously this is merely an observation due to our personal predicament and shouldn't impact on someone who is fortunate to have 20/20 vision. My husband and I have said we would definitely stay again if we were to pay a return visit to the area in the future as it was great value for money and in a great location.

We stayed at the ABBEYCRAIG for two seperate nights in May 2012. We found the B&B easy to find, just follow the signs toward the Wallace Monumant. The location is great for visiting the monument and Sterling Castle. We stayed in 2 different rooms and both were lovely and immaculate. The second night that we stayed we were in the self catering room behind the main house. If you are planning on staying for more that one night, you might want to consider this room. It has a full kitchen and huge bedroom above. It also has a huge bath with a wonderful walk in shower. I could have stayed for ever. Breakfast were great and Annette even got up one hour early to serve us breakfast so we could catch our train to Glasgow. Annette was warm, welcoming and attentive without being obtrusive. On premise off street parking that was easy to access.
The Abbeycraig was probably my favorite B&B during our entire 27 day holiday. I highly recommend it and would absolutely stay again.

Beautiful house,spotlessly clean and excellent breakfast, slight drawbacks; not the friendliest of welcomes (though possibly that was my fault for going to the wrong door) and the room was very cold. Very good value for money

This was our first visit to a bed and breakfast and the Abbey Craig has set the bar extremely high! The entire property is beautiful and the room is comfortable and has all the amenities we needed. Annette is a warm and welcoming person and goes way above and beyond the call of duty. Her breakfast was delicious and her hospitality stellar. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. The location is within walking distance to the William Wallace Monument. I would recommend this bed and breakfast without hesitation.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1 which has a beautiful view of the monument right out the bedroom windonw
