Oh dear!

Posted 30-Aug-2014
Pros: Pleasant, friendly and courteous staff.
Cons: Clean the carpet. Repair the bathroom fan. Lack of an easily accessible lift is a major problem. Feedback requested but not even acknowledged.
Location: Isolated position on a university campus. Pleasantly quiet.
There is no lift in or near the reception area. My disabled wife and I had to struggle up a very steep flight of stairs. Almost impossible to open the bedroom door due to ill fitting lock. Fan in bathroom not working. Carpet in bedroom was filthy. Picture fastened to wall at a very strange angle. No response to questionnaire, even though contact details were requested. Astonishing to think that this hotel is part of a management school as all of the very obvious faults would be apparent to even the most appallingly bad management. I visited this hotel because I knew Tom Cottrell (the University of Stirling's first Principal). He was a perfectionist and would be very disappointed if he could see the state of the carpet in a bedroom in the Management Centre.

Not suited to leisure travellers

Posted 24-Aug-2014
Cons: They need to rethink what they are providing for the leisure market and re-train staff accordingly. There is no sense of 'hospitality' at all.
A disappointing experience. This is located on a beautiful university campus and could be an excellent facility. We found the reception staff surly and unwelcoming; we paid extra for a room 'with a view' and got one which looked out on to the back of other buildings; Saturday breakfast finished at 9am (we asked politely on Friday night whether this was correct and were told 'we're a conference facility'); the build quality is poor with no sound insulation meaning that you can hear people walking by your room very loudly even if they are not talking or being heavy-footed. Breakfast was ordinary in a cavernous dining hall which presumably is used as a conference/exhibition room when required. Such a shame, such a wasted opportunity!

Great Business Location

Posted 11-May-2014 on Hotels.com
I have been staying at Stirling Management Center for a couple of years and is perfect for my needs. Very near (2.5 miles) from my Alloa Service Center. Food is excellent and a good choice of bar or restaurant menus with daily specials. Breakfast again excellent with good choice of either cereals, fruit full cooked breakfast or continental style. Room is minimalist but nevertheless fully equipped including access to ethernet or Cloud wifi. Good high pressure shower within batch so both catered for. Plenty of free secure parking. Full leisure facilities available on the University campus incl. Olympic size swimming pool, weights & running machines etc. Overall for the price offers great value and I'll continue to use without any reservation and is highly recommended.

Worst hotel I've stayed in

Posted 06-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
This was a terrible experience, I stayed here for 2 nights but couldn't bare anymore, I moved to the Sterling Highland Hotel which was a much nicer experience. The only thing I enjoyed about this hotel was the meal we had for dinner in the restaurant. The other staff where rude and unwelcoming. I can't believe how highly rated this hotel is after reading the reviews. Will not go back, much better options in Stirling on all accounts.

amazing breakfasts

Posted 20-Feb-2014 on Hotels.com
Style of room is contemporary and unobtrusive and comfortable. The breakfasts are amazing! Better than some 5 star hotels I have stayed in. Public areas clean and welcoming. Only one small niggle (I wasn't told about the car park token system). I stayed on my own and felt perfectly comfortable and happy with the hotel. The University grounds offer peaceful walks and the chance to spot wildlife (I saw a merganser in the loch).

Great one night stay

Posted 09-Dec-2013 on Hotels.com
We headed to Stirling to do the tourist bit over the weekend and thought we would spend one night there relaxing. Location was ideal being just outside the town centre, no problems being on the uni complex, food was lovely. Would def stay again.
