Every time we're in Stirling we try to stay in Portcullis, but you either have to book in advance or have some luck, because they only have 3 or 4 rooms on the top floor and are quite popular. Rooms are cozy and the view on the town below is great (especially from the corner room which is a twin-bed). Breakfast is very nice as well, you get an option of ordering smoked salmon which I always do :). The restaurant downstairs is great for dinner, but you need to book due to high demand for locals; but they usually manage to find a table for us relatively quickly while we're having some drinks at the bar. The menu looks really short, but the food is good and they are really generous with their meals - one main can be enough for two! The place is perfectly located for exploring the castle - it's right next to it - and the town centre is just a short stroll down.
