We were disappointed at this Hotel Upon arrival we eventually found their car park and came into the Hotel via the rear entrance. This gave us a poor impression of the hotel and first impressions count. We were expected but the request for the full payment for 2 nights on arrival was unexpected. The room we were allocated was clean but no more than adequate (Room 450). Both door frames had been damaged (main door & bathroom) and poorly repaired, there were 2 out of the 4 lights in the bathroom not working (hanging from the ceiling so unlikely to work). The weather was very hot whilst we were there and needed the windows open to keep cool. Unfortunately on the 2nd night there was a wedding reception with disco until 1am just below our room. Clearing up took another noisy hour. The hotel would be aware of this so why allocate this room to us? Overall the Hotel is tired with impersonal staff. On the positive side the food in the restuarant was good and the buffet breakfast excellent.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel dates back to 1786, one of Stirling's first hotels filled with old world charm in a friendly environment. IN THE HEART of historic Stirling, the Golden Lion Hotel has for more than two centuries welcomed guests including royalty and even the national bard, Rabbie Burns (plaque on wall by front door in acknowledgement of his stay). Nowadays the ideal setting for leisure, business and special occasions, the family-owned Golden Lion provides traditional Scottish hospitality in thoroughly modern style. From the splendid buffet breakfast to the contemporary comforts of the 67 beautifully rooms and the timeless elegance of the stunning Regency Ballroom, this is a hotel with character as well as professional commitment. Close to magnificent Stirling Castle, and a short trip from the famous Monument to William Wallace, the Golden Lion makes an ideal base for the tourist. Practical advantages add to the appeal: the hotel’s city centre location - with free car parking - is only a few minutes drive from the national motorway network. The principal bus and rail stations are within easy walking distance(5 minutes)of the Golden Lion’s front door. There is an excellent choice of shops on the doorstep next to the Thistle indoor shopping Mall. The warmth of our welcome awaits you! Free WIFI available in all public & conference areas. ... more less
