Reviewed January 5, 2013

Stayed at the old tram house for the second time for 2 nights Hogmanay and the 1st of jan what a great time we had . Alison the host was just first class and as before nothing was a problem to her the room was first class as was the breakfast and as for new years night Alison put on a spread for us in the guest lounge and came through and had a drink with us now where else would you get service like that ? So many thanks again Alison for a great couple of nights will see you again at the end of the year if not before love Tracey and Gaz XX

I regularly stayed at The Old Tram House B&B throughout this year and it was ideal for staying nearby to the University. The hostess Alison was very welcoming and always went the extra mile. The breakfast offers a wide variety and was always to a good standard. There are regular buses just outside the B&B to and from the city centre which is around 5 minutes away and the Birds and Bees restaurant nearby is very good for lunch or evening meals. Overall, thank you for a great stay!

We stayed at the Old Tram House in Stirling for one night in November 2012. We arrived on a train from Edinburgh and you will need to take a taxi to the B&B as it is a few miles outside of town. It is within walking distance (10 minutes) of the National William Wallace Monument.

We arrived quite early in the morning before our room was ready but we were allowed to store our luggage there and change our clothes and use the restroom before heading out to explore the town.

The owner was gracious and nice and called us a taxi to take us into town as well as gave us a map and recommendations on what to see, where to eat, etc.

The room was large, clean and had complimentary hot tea and cookies as well as chocolate waiting for us. The bathroom was huge with a great shower - very hot water!

They ask that you choose your breakfast the night before as well as what time you want to eat so they can have it ready for you when you arrive. They have a full hot breakfast, as well as a continental breakfast, cold cereals, yogurts, fruit, granola bars, assorted juices, tea and coffee. It was a lot of food and delicious!

We would definitely stay here again and have a great experince!

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
