My room was dingy ,the bed lights didn't work and the sink didn't drain. The room my daughters had was lovely. Breakfast was OK but the fruit selection was poor, orange, pineapple and prune only and only one toaster and drink machine with therefore associated queues. 8 years ago this hotel was fantastic Now, hmmmm. Good parking though.

Nice hotel, convenient location

Pros: Location, staff, size of room and bathroom
Cons: looks a bit tired in places - could do with some upgrading
Location: Stirling town centre is a 5/10 minute walk as is the castle
Have stayed here before and more than happy to stay again. On a business trip where this is one of three hotels that a taxi service picks up from. The road on which the hotel is located leads up to Stirling Castle but the road is usually quiet - the castle is a 10 minute walk away. The staff are very good and very friendly, breakfast is self service but pretty good. The restaurant is comfortable and the menu gives quite a bit of choice. I'm staying ghereagain in two weeks time and I'm quite happy to so so

perfekte Lage mit schönem Zimmer

Wir wurden freundlichst empfangen. Das Zimmer ist gut und das Bett bequem. Ebenso das Badezimmer ist tadellos. Einziges Manko waren die Flecken am Boden und am Duvet. Es hatte sogar Löcher. Auch konnten wir noch mehrere Abfälle der vorherigen Gästen finden. Somit gibt es in Punkto Sauberkeit noch einiges zu verbessern. Speziell für ein 4-Stern Hotel. Das Frühstück ist in Ordnung, auf verschiedene Buffet-Tische im ganzen Raum verteilt. Parkplätze hat es genügend, man sollte aber doch rechtzeitig ankommen.

Pros: Service im Restaurant, Essen; hilfreich, engagierte Rezeptzionistin
Cons: Beschilderung, Klimaanlage, Lift!
Location: in der Nähe des Schlosses, das sehenswert ist.
Es braucht ein Initiieren, dass das Gepäck vom Auto ins Zimmer und nicht nur von der Rezeption aus aufs Zimmer gebracht wurde; der Herr an der Rezeption sagte: I'll give you a hand und verschwand für 20 Minuten! Bei der Abreise tags darauf, da wir mit dem Hotel nicht zufrieden waren, musste ich wieder insistieren, dass das Gepäck vom Zimmer zum Auto gebracht wurde. Negative Punkte. schlecht anschreiben schon bei der Anreise; wenn ausgeschildert wäre, dass der Eingang vom Parkplatz aus möglich wäre, hätte mir dies steiles Treppensteigen über zwei Etagen erspart! Die Zimmer waren heiss, Klimaanlage fehlt; die Fenster lassen sich nur einen Spalt weit öffnen, keine Minibar mit Kühlschrank vorhanden.zuvorkommend, das Essen gut; individuelle Wünsche konnten angebracht werden. Zu loben ist der Einsatz der Receptionistin, die uns noch am selben Abend half, ein anderes Hotel zu finden, billiger, in Parknähe und besser ausgestattet. (Park Hotel, Park Terrace 32, Stirling) Sehr gut war der Service im Restaurant, wirklich behilflich und
