Great location and comfy hotel
Posted 14-Nov-2016 on Hotels
We had booked the Highland Hotel for our first year wedding anniversary trip and it was above expectations!
The hotel itself is easy enough to find as it's just off Baker street and took about 10mins to reach from Stirling Station on foot.
The hotel is based in an old school and it looked to us straight out of Harry Potter with its arches and brickwork, just smell that History!
The reception staff were courteous, friendly and checking in took no time at all.
We had booked a standard king room and upon entering we were pleasantly surprised as the room is a lot bigger than the photos make out.
Big comfy bed, not overtly decorated and tacky like some hotels, with a pleasant sized bathroom containing a bathtub even, perfect for romance!
The hotel was even kind enough to surprise us with a bottle of wine and some chocolates for our anniversary and it was very touching!
The hotel bar was also excellent for the breakfast and it was probably one of the best breakfast buffets I've had, with freshly pressed orange juice, all the scottish breakfast items and even wee pastries and fresh fruit.
The hotel location is also perfect, being less than 10mins from Stirling Castle, less than 5mins from Church of the Holy Rude and if you feel like a good walk, 40mins walk from the National Wallace Monument!
There are also some fantastic restaurants on Baker Street and towards Stirling Castle.
Overall, perfect place to stay for a wee getaway and we will be back!
