Central yet close to Stirling castle

Posted Oct 13, 2016
Lovely hotel . Staff very pleasant and helpful. The only tiny things I would comment on are the pillows. Not quite hotel quality . And no shower caps in en suite . However we would return.

Good location, could use a better shower

Posted Aug 13, 2016
Nice hotel, comfortable bed, but the pillows sucked. The location is excellent, particularly for taking the backwalk along the old town wall to get to the castle. The shower was functional, but never got above lukewarm.

Small Town Hotel 30 Minutes from Edinburgh Airport

Posted Aug 11, 2016
Pros: King sized bed.
Cons: Wedding music from neighboring hotel's courtyard was loud. Reserve rooms on that side for wedding guests?
Location: Stirling Castle next door.
Was a good stopover on way back from Highlands on way to the airport. Small, walkable old town pleasant enough.

Easy access in town centre.

Posted Aug 7, 2016
Pros: Retained school history and information and the town centre location.
Cons: Cheaper breakfast.
Location: Perfect old town location close to the castle and shops.
Excellent location and lovely easy place to be - parking easy and within Hotel grounds. The spa was lovely and staff really helpful. Bar open for food all day which was useful as we wanted to eat soon after arriving. Really interesting setting within an old school, including the Headmasters Room and subject rooms!

The mini castle experience

Posted Aug 6, 2016
Pros: The Victorian style of the hotel, and helpful staff.
Cons: Remind visitors to wear comfortable foot wear as there is a fair amount of uphill walking on cobble stoned streets.
Location: Centrally located, close proximately to Stirling castle and other historical attractions. Pubs and shops are nearby.
As the hotel used to be an academy and is over a hundred years old, it was almost like staying in a small castle. Set on rock and an uphill climb from the train station it is an imposing structure with beautiful architecture. It is very large and spread out with a courtyard in the middle which has parking, and there was ample parking in back of the hotel too. We were pleasantly surprised to have our room upgraded to a deluxe room which gave us an amazing view of the city, all the church steeples and many clocks. The staff were gracious and helpful, ordering taxi for us, recommended car rental agencies, and offering to hold our luggage so we could explore the city the next day after checking out. The room was very clean, lots of lighting, mini fridge, spacious bathroom. And best of all they had a modern indoor pool and jacuzzi.
