“Old Tram House is hospitality at its best!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

I spent 10 days at this traditional magnificent "home away from home". The clean luxury accommodation with lovely decorations, the nice well prepared breakfast in a decent setting, the Guest Lounge with original Scotch Whisky to revive you after exploring the compact city of Stirling and above all the great hospitality from Alison - these and the central location of this great B&B will surely make you stay more days or even weeks than you planned. Alison will give you all the support, tips and advice on whatever you want to do, see or explore within Stirling and infact the entire Scotland. If you want to explore and know more about Scotland particularly central Scotland, I highly recommend Old Tram House B&B. It is indeed a nice hospitality treasure!

Room Tip: All rooms are ensuite and luxuriously comfortable.

Our recent stay at The Old Tram House was our second. Alison's warm welcome was just as welcoming as the 1st time. And nothing is ever a trouble. The accommodation is luxury and comfort. It is very clean. The breakfasts are fantastic and set in an elegant dining room. The breakfast sets you up for the day. The decor throughout extremely tasteful. Alison's recommendations for restaurants were spot on. This B&B is in a central location. Stirling is the Gate way to the Highlands.

Room Tip: Every room at The Old Tram House is good. Always check the reviews.

We spent our night in Stirling at this amazing B&B. Alison is very welcoming and friendly. Our room was beautiful and very clean. We got an excellent dinner recommendation and walked into town (that was kind of a long trek, but we could have gotten a taxi). We had a delicious breakfast the next morning before heading out for the day. I definitely recommend this B&B!

This is a little treasure. Alison made us so welcome and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms were lovely and had some lovely little touches like fresh bottles of water every day. Would highly recommend this place to anyone

We spent 3 night at The Old Tram House in early October and I recommend this B&B highly. We took the train from Glasgow and a cab to the B&B and after that, we walked. If you don't have a car, are able-bodied and enjoy walking, this is a marvellous place to stay, because it's within an easy walk to the town centre, the beautiful castle and the William Wallace monument. Our room was lovely, we heard no traffic noise and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The breakfasts were exceptional and I even pushed my luck one morning by requesting kippers. Yum! The whole stay was great and the cherry on top was our hostess, Alison Cowie, who could/should write a book on how to run a B&B. Thanks for everything and we will certainly be back for a another visit.

We have just returned from our fourth visit this year to The Old Tram House and once again found the service, accommodation and friendlyness so very good. We have to visit Stirling for family reasons and find Alison an excellent hostess making our stay less stressful than it might otherwise be. We'll be back again before the end of the year. Thanks Alison for making our stay so comfortable.

My friend and I stayed two nights at the Tram House B&B. Upon arrival, we were immediately shown to our lovely, comfortable room. Then were given a map and directions for the Wallace Memorial for an afternoon tour. When we came back, we were given several restaurant choices nearby and had an excellent meal within walking distance. Next day, perfect directions to the castle and downtown, and another great restaurant, this time we drove.
The breakfasts at the Tram House were wonderful, everything was very clean and comfortable, the owners very welcoming and helpful.
I would highly recommend the Tram House for a stay in Stirling.
