My husband and I visited for a couple of days away. It's very difficult to find this hotel because of the very confusing one way system in the town. We managed to park in the very cramped car park however scratched our car on a high kerb in the difficult process of trying to get out. The reception area is...

Stayed here for two nights, located on the main street, ideal for shops, cafes, pubs and about a five minute walk from bus and train station. Our room was good, no complaints everything you would look for was there, kettle for hot drinks, iron and board and hairdryer bathroom was bright and modern. For breakfast you get a good selection...

Great welcome and big rooms. The bar area is spacious as is the rest of the hotel. Good value for money and right in the town centre for bars, restaurants and shopping. Would recommend and return for a further stay.

The golden lion is right in the middle of the city centre. So handy for a shopping weekend. The staff are very friendly and our room was clean and cosy. The breakfast is buffet style. Plenty of choice and nice and hot. The bar staff are also really nice.

We were visiting Stirling this weekend as a family and this hotel was perfect for what we wanted. It needs a little improvement here and there but I think it's what gives it its character. The only issues we had were that the car park was full when we got there but we found a couple of spaces hidden in...

Reading past reviews, several folk wrote about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and during my short stay I certainly found this to be the case. They saved me a lot of time when I was looking for advice on shops and the service staff were particularly helpful when I had a problem with the iron in my room....

I stayed one night here 24th January 2017. It's on the high street but I found a parking space right outside and it's free parking after 5:30pm until 8:45 am the next morning. Staff were really welcoming. I arrived really late (10pm) because of traffic but they offered to make me food even though the kitchen was closed. The rooms...

Used the hotel twice this year on business trips to the area. Location is a big draw along with the parking. Reception and bar staff were friendly and attentive, food and drink in the bar was good and value for money. On my first visit I stayed and a large double room with a comfortable seating area on the second...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel dates back to 1786, one of Stirling's first hotels filled with old world charm in a friendly environment. IN THE HEART of historic Stirling, the Golden Lion Hotel has for more than two centuries welcomed guests including royalty and even the national bard, Rabbie Burns (plaque on wall by front door in acknowledgement of his stay). Nowadays the ideal setting for leisure, business and special occasions, the family-owned Golden Lion provides traditional Scottish hospitality in thoroughly modern style. From the splendid buffet breakfast to the contemporary comforts of the 67 beautifully rooms and the timeless elegance of the stunning Regency Ballroom, this is a hotel with character as well as professional commitment. Close to magnificent Stirling Castle, and a short trip from the famous Monument to William Wallace, the Golden Lion makes an ideal base for the tourist. Practical advantages add to the appeal: the hotel’s city centre location - with free car parking - is only a few minutes drive from the national motorway network. The principal bus and rail stations are within easy walking distance(5 minutes)of the Golden Lion’s front door. There is an excellent choice of shops on the doorstep next to the Thistle indoor shopping Mall. The warmth of our welcome awaits you! Free WIFI available in all public & conference areas. ... more   less
