Great location

Posted 24-May-2017
Close to restaurants, Sterling Castle, Wallace Monument, and Bannick Burn Battlefield. It's a big older building so not everything is going to be perfect but the staff was great, the breakfast was excellent, and the room was clean. I would stay here again.

Great Location

Posted 22-May-2017
Pros: It has interesting history
Cons: Staff were a little unwelcoming
We were in walking distance to Stirling Castle and all the amenities of downtown Stirling. The hotel is an old boarding school, which has a certain charm to it. The buffet style breakfast in the morning was great and in an old food hall, which was nice and bright and spacious.

Perfect location to explore the city of Stirling

Posted 08-May-2017
Pros: Traditional hotel, no pretentious attitudes or approaches to customer care.
Cons: Room cleanliness. The room looked neglected, tables covered in dust, toilet hadn't been cleaned nor had the bath. more attention needed.
Location: Location is perfect for exploring Stirling. Local attractions, i.e. castle. Not far from shops, pubs, restaurants etc.
All in all, the hotel provided a comfortable room, plenty food and refreshment choices and provided the ideal location to explore the city.

TRULY ROYAL CASTLE/HOTEL

Posted 30-Apr-2017
Pros: BEAUTIFUL STONE BLDG AND COURTYARD. FRIENDLY WELCOMING STAFF. GREAT LOCATION; NEAR MOST SIGHTS.
Cons: NADA
Location: AS MENTIONED ABOVE
BEAUTIFUL STONE BLDG., EXCELLENT PARKING FACILITIES AND CENTRALLY LOCATED. WE WERE ABLE TO WALK TO ALMOST EVERY PLACE IN TOWN WITHOUT TROUBLE. STAFF WERE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. CHECK IN EXPERIENCE WAS VERY WELCOMING, MAKING US FEEL QUITE AT EASE AFTER A LONG FLIGHT AND HRS. DRIVE FROM AIRPORT IN EDINBURGH. BREAKFAST WAS GREAT AND BAR STAFF WERE FRIENDLY AND ATTENTIVE.

Close to the Castle

Posted 24-Apr-2017
Pros: Friendly staff, great location.
Cons: The selection of gin in the bar, having Bombay Sapphire as your best gin isn't good enough when there are so many fantastic Scottish Gins available
Location: Stirling Castle, The Church of the Holy Rude, The Battle of Bannock Burn site, The Wallace Monument. Many other historical sites are close by.
The hotel is located nice and central to Stirling just a few minutes from Stirling Castle. You can easily walk to the castle and other tourist sights and shops in Stirling. The Wallace Monument is a few minutes away by car. We arrived early but we were still given a room and the room was nice and clean. The windows open which allows fresh air in, rather than some hotels relying on air-conditioning which I don't like. Plenty parking spaces was available at check in, with no charges for parking which makes a nice change from some hotels I've stayed at recently.
