Very nice hotel, very quiet, very nice rooms facing the forest. Twin rooms are comfortable, very big compared to double rooms. Breakfast buffet is great, very large choice of cold and hot food, beautiful forest view from the restaurant. Nice food at the restaurant. Kimberly from reception went above and beyond to ensure our stay was great. She gave us a quiet twin room at the back of the hotel facing the forest, where we saw deers in the morning. Then the 2nd night, we had very noisy neighbour, so no fuss, she moved us into the Dornoch suite, great size, very comfortable beds. Thank you again Kimberley, thanks to you, our stay couldn't have been better ! Price was very cheap for the quality: 92 pounds for 2 nights 2 people, 2 breakfast. Some things could be improved though: Noise level inside: we hear people a lot in the corridor from the rooms, or up the stairs (from the 1st room in the Dornoch suite, you hear a lot people chatting in the stairs), an additional door between the suite s door and the stairs would be great. The automatic lighting in the bathroom is not a good idea in a hotel room for 2 reasons: when you wake up in the middle of the night and want to use the bathroom, it alights automatically when you walk past the door, even when you stay in the room, so it s the best way to wake up the other person in the bed, and also, there is a set timer, which means that if you only want to take cream or wash your hands, the light will stay on for several minutes... so, all in all, not really a good way to spend less electricity.
The hotel was historically primarily a confer venue and works fine for that. Located at Stirling University has good transport links and is fairly accessible. Staff are nice and helpful on arrival. Check-in was quick. Rooms are ok if a little dated but are fine for business purposes. Could do with little extras like mineral water in the rooms. Dinner and breakfast are pretty good too, if unspectacular. Overall the value for money is fine. Bar prices are ok for a hotel. Not convinced I’d want to stay here for leisure purposes, even with use of the University sports facilities.
Stayed for two nights and there is nothing bad to say about it! The room was spacious and we even had a view of the Wallace Monument out of our window. It was a nice quiet location on the Stirling University campus and close to tourist sites. We did not have meals included, but had dinner in the bar anyway and it was great. The breakfast was nice and good value for money. Would stay here again!
This hotel is good value for money and friendly polite professional excellent service.. my only tip which is easy to fix .. the. ‘Breakfast’ ham and cheese is dried out completely as if left uncovered... same every day on each visit ... quick win to fix . The food otherwise is good value.
A group of booked in here because we were visiting the Allanwater Brewhouse Pub and brewery for a beer tasting tour in The Bridge of Allan and we all had an Itson voucher for dinner bed and breakfast. The hotel was spacious and clean and set inside the University grounds. Drive in from the main road and keep to the right, head up the hill past the swimming academy and keep on heading up the hill, keeping to the right and the hotel is at the top. There is plenty of free parking outside the hotel but I did notice pay and display parking further down so avoid that section. The rooms were large, clean and well set out with the usual free tea and coffee and TV. There is free WIFI but I couldn't get connected for some reason on the night of our visit. The view from the room (ground floor no.135) was of the other section of the hotel but if we looked to the right we could see some hills in the distance. I have to say this is the first hotel in a while that we had to turn down the heating because the room was getting too warm. The dinning area was large and the bar area set out with chairs and couches. The food at dinner and breakfast was excellent but I will review it under restaurants. The staff were polite, well presented and prompt and always available to assist. If you are going into the Bridge of Allan then drive or book a taxi and mind to pre-book a taxi for the return trip as taxis here are in short supply. Its a 10min car journey or a slow 30-45min walk to the centre of the town.
We stayed here for two nights on an Itison deal, at a cost of £130 for both nights, DBB. It was a good deal but we had contacted the hotel in advance to let them they know we are both vegan and asked if they could provide us with food, which they said shouldn't be a problem. The first night they gave us a stir fry which was fine. On the second night we had dinner in the dining hall and there appeared to be a real lack of awareness as to what vegans can/ cannot eat. My partnet was served a curry with prawn crackers (not vegan) and I was severed a veggie burger with cheese (again not vegan). Options were also fairly limited for breakfast, which given we had confirmed in advance our dietary requirements, was not ideal. They also told us before the booking that they have a lot of vegan guests, which given the lack of awareness about a vegan diet, surprised me. Despite the above, the room was comfy and the staff were friendly. They really need to get their act together though in terms of dietary requirements and not say they cater for vegans when their staff/ chefs clearly don't know what constitutes a vegan diet.
Although it is out with Stirling itself, the university location is quiet, but lends itself to a break that is intended for exploring the rich history of the surrounding area. The hotel itself is comfortable, clean and the staff are very friendly. The food is also very good, starting the day with a hearty breakfast and we ended the day with a very tasty evening meal. The hotel seems to be mainly for business people, but we enjoyed our five night break there.
Was visiting the university for a meeting, and was kindly put up in the on site hotel. First impressions were very good, and the reception staff helpful and friendly. The hotel is also nice and warm, which given the subzero temperatures outside was a welcome. Onsite wifi (eduroam) was excellent, allowing me to stream Netflicks without a problem - something most hotels can't cope with. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was okay, although some of the fixtures here clearly had been repaired in a bit of a hurry or without much finesse. The TV was clearly from the last century though, and I never did work out how to get any channels worth watching - despite my best efforts. Oh, and good luck trying to fill the kettle in the sink - the sink is far too small to get the kettle in position, and you end up using the bath taps...which is hardly what I'd expect in an equivalent (Premier Inn) hotel. But to end on a positive - breakfast was excellent, with a fine range, lots to chose from and plenty of space to sit and set yourself up for the day. I know without a doubt next time I'm in Stirling, this hotel will be my number one choice!
Decided to come back here after a lovely time last year. Again lovely food and atmosphere, our waiter was RJ (?) who was really attentive and genuine. We found the whole experience relaxing and all staff a delight. Santa visit was quick and not as good as last year ( but maybe he was busy 😉) Thank you all for again a great Xmas dinner and look forward to returning next year.
Now, I am feeling sorry for myself so that you can understand my disappointment. I flew from SE Asia 6 days ago and have spent the best part of 4 days in bed comatosed by the flu. I was taken to the superb Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow on the day I was hoping to arrive at the Stirling Court hotel and given injections to stop the vomiting blah blah. This meant that short of my husband throwing me over his shoulder and carrying me to the car ( hoping that I didn’t mess it up) then dragging me up two flights of stairs because I didn’t see a lift in the hotel , we reluctantly had to (Justifiably in my opinion, although I was unconscious at the time he made the call) cancel that night at the hotel at about 12.30 He apologised and said that if I did indeed stop coughing and vomiting etc that we would be there the next day. In fact I had to go because I had a final exam the next morning ( today) . Ok, I know everyone has policies for no shows but come on, I was in hospital, they charged me for both nights. If even one person had smiled at me or made me the least bit welcome I probably would not give this hotel such an average rating, but they really do deserve it. I’ve been in friendlier, unpretentious hotels .This is Scotland, the land of my husband and children. I just felt that the staff and the management were not interested in me the customer, full stop. The room had a great view the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of space but no fridge, hard to reach sockets, only one bedside cabinet, no mirror with a light where I could do my makeup. Being short old a bit fat and decidedly short sighted, I think leaning over a sink and shelf this morning means that my mascara is wayward. Now the bathroom looks nice, small but smart . However to have a bath you first have to climb into the bath to get the plug in then turn on the tap. I’ve been all over the world and not been so confused by taps! But I was really ill. The Perspex screen is too long it was hard to jump out before my socks got wet, right, I should have undressed first. Food was nice but just dumped infront of me no one asked if it was okay, in fact no one reappeared full stop.breakfast was nice too.
