The guesthouse is situated in a very pleasant part of the city made up of large Victorian stone houses. Although it is only a few minutes walk from the city centre the area is very calm. It has been beautifully restored to its former splendour and the handsomely proportioned rooms have been decorated and furnished with loving care, so give a feeling of warmth, light and spaciousness. In addition there is great attention to detail throughout from the painted cornices, to the embroidered cushions and William Morris teacups. Phil and Kari were very friendly, informative and justly proud of their labour of love. I would recommend the guest house to anyone

We've just returned from a two night stay at Victoria Square Guest House, this recently opened and fully refurbished large traditional guest house. Quality of work done and attention to detail is second to none, the house decor and furniture of high quality we had a beautiful room with a kingsize bed and excellent ensuite and view of the castle. The breakfast was very good and great selection, the welcome and hospitality were so warm and friendly and kari and Phil were the perfect hoists. Thanks for a lovely weekend, Irene & John

Room Tip: Just enjoy

I booked a weekend here for my wife's 60th birthday. We were very impressed with the house, room and especially the service we received from the owners Kari and Phil. We stayed in the superior four poster room and everything was perfect. Kari recommended places to eat and we had a very enjoyable weekend. We will definitely stay here again if we visit Stirling. First class accommodation and excellent personal service. Usually stay in at least a 4star hotel and this easily matches if not exceeds. Thank you

Highly recommended!! We ended up being delayed by a day and phoned up to cancel our booking and make another for the following night. Kari very kindly transferred our booking for no extra charge as they were quiet. Totally unexpected and very much appreciated, so thanks again :) Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and showed to our fabulous room. Everything was perfect, we had a very comfortable night and didn't want to leave. Breakfast was first class too. We will definitely be staying here again.

It is very obvious that no expense has been spared in this recently opened and totally refurbished large traditional guest house. Quality, attention to detail, luxury and friendliness are everywhere. I booked a single room and it turned out to be a very spacious, beautiful room with a double bed and excellent ensuite. This is the single, not an upgrade! Breakfast is a complete joy and will not disappoint. Along with the bedroom, the entrance hall, guest lounge and breakfast room are lovely, extremely spacious with high ceilings and just ooze class.

Had a fabulous 2 night stay in a first class guest house: recently acquired by a lovely couple Kari and Phil - couldn't be more helpful: I'm very fussy when it comes to accommodation but Victoria Square will be hard to beat: can't wait to get back for out next visit.

Room Tip: The location is quiet - the front rooms look onto a green area and the back rooms look on to Stirli...
