Bit upset for the food which was actually not that bad nor that escellent, I'd say average. Very impressed for the amazing location and the incredible venue, like the old style very well maintained and still showing off in all its splendour! Also very friendly syff which really made the dinner different ... great job guys!

Super hotel, location, ambiance, service are all very good. Views from the hotel are spectacular. Highly recommend it. Get the real Scottish feeling. Wallace monument not far and the castle is next door

This friendly Establishment conveniently close to Stirling Castle is an ideal eating place. The food is of an exceptionally high standard, the service is excellent, and the staff are efficient and friendly. Jim and Lynn, who run the hotel, are highly experienced in the hospitality business and it shows by the number of customers who leave with smiles on their...

Firstly the location is great, right by the castle, and was recommended by a worker in one of the shops at the castle. When we got there we were welcomed by a nice open fire and the friendliest and most helpful staff, who gave us a laugh. Food was absolutely delicious too :) would go again!

Went for dinner Friday night (booked 4days in advance - advance booking recommended) with family. Had heard lots about the steak and it definitely lived up to, even surpassed, expectations. We all had steak - rump, sirloin and ribeye all were exceptionally well cooked to absolute perfection with no skimping on portion size. All left stuffed & very satisfied. Definitely...

Great service, great ambiance, great food, great portions, great place. We visited for lunch (4 of us) and had no complaints. The pub is warm thanks to a coal fire at the back of this thick walled ex Boys School set within the Castle Esplanade. Very busy and is always recommended to book even for lunch as there were more...

I arrived on a rather dark, misty day, so the hotel gave me an impression of mystery when I first got there. Once I was checked in, I was delighted to find that the hotel is situated between the cemetery and Stirling Castle. My room had a view of the cemetery. The Castle is literally across a parking lot from...

Great location literally right next to Stirling Castle high above the town. Parking is limited but the few spaces there are did free up once the Castle closed at 5pm. I had a single room which was adequate, nice enough but not very big and not much of a view however it was clean and up to date. The bar...
