Reviewed July 8, 2011

A wonderful welcome from Laura, who was very informative about the area and local restaurants. Bedroom was clean and light and there was a superb breakfast in the morning, we have already booked a return trip, this time a little longer stay

As the title says, this was the best B & B I have stayed in and expect to return. The welcome from Laura and her mother was lovely and we had loads of chats over our four-night stay. Laura also brought us tea and biscuits to our room as we probably looked tired after our journey. There is a tray in the bedroom with tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water that was replenished each day. The bedroom was really well furnished and the en-suite, and indeed the whole property, was clean, bright and airy. There is a large, comfortable visitors' lounge with splendid views. Our bedroom was in an annex, near to the breakfast room and there is a patio with tubs of flowers and a table and chairs. There is a separate door to the annex that visitors can use if they wish or the front door. Location was excellent and we had quite a number of walks below the castle and to and from the town centre, rather than taking the car all the time. The breakfasts were excellent - fresh fruit salad was our choice although there was the usual range of cereals and yoghurts, followed by a really well-cooked and delicious cooked breakfast (the bacon done crisply to our taste was particularly good) and toast and tea or coffee (the bread was home-baked, by the way). All in all, we loved it! There was also a computer that guests could use, which I found handy.

Very comfortable a short walk from town centre via a peaceful bush walk. Warm hospitality with beautiful breakfast. All facilities one would require.

We highly recommend Castlecroft. Its location, right under Stirling Castle and on the back walk along the hillside to town, is ideal. Laura is a charming and attentive hostess who bakes her own bread for breakfast and offers a variety of breakfast options -- all delicious. The rooms are comfortable with the little touches that make a B&B experience memorable. There is a large sitting room for guests with wonderful views on two sides, comfortable chairs, and a variety of guide books and information for touring. We stayed 3 nights and found Stirling (with Laura's help and suggestions) to be an excellent base for exploring the region. Laura's recommendations for dinner were all excellent. The 10-minute walk to town or up to the castle can be a bit steep in places, but the views from the path are worth the effort.

This B&B was as good as the best we stayed in on a month long trip. Our hostess, Laura was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very modern and well furnished. The breakfast was excellent. With a location only a 10 minute walk from Stirling Castle it is very convenient. One of the other advantages is a very nice sitting room with fabulous views in two directions. It is a B&B we can recommend very strongly.

Room Tip: The ground floor is convenient to bring in bags.

Stayed at Castlecroft five nights in May. Laura and her mother are the two finest hosts we have ever encountered. Wife is walking hadicapped,-Laura did all she could to help. A great welcoming. Wonderful room downstairs with a large patio leading to parking lot. Room was large, cheerful, and immaculate. Laura provided us with goodies every day, much more goodies than we have ever experienced, even bottles of water.
Michael, her assistant cleaned out room and bath spotlessly daily. Her breakfast was fantastic. Castlecroft is located at the base of Stirling Castle,-could be walked to by many. Perfect location for sightseeing in all directions.

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms have patio and lead to parking.
