The Stirling Highland Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our room was old, tired & unclean. There was a large build up of dust around the tv, window sills & bathroom bin. Bathroom bin hadn’t been moved since the previous occupants as there was a cotton wool bud under it. Ironically the cleaning crew knocked on our door 1 hour before check our time.

Stayed here for one night on a break in Scotland before moving on to Edinburgh, it's a great looking hotel with a classy interior and beautiful rooms. The location is central to all the best bars and restaurants. Free parking, helpful staff, beautiful building inside and out. Would definitely recommend!

First visit to the hotel which met our expectations in terms of comfort and food Leisure facilities excellent Will return to Stirling one day and would more than likely stay at the Highland Hotel Staff very professional and customer focused

The first room we were offered looked lovely as we entered, however on closer inspection we found it to be covered in dust. The curtain pelmet was filthy and there were cobwebs running from it to the corner of the room. Upon checking the bathroom I found a total of nine hairs in the bath! And I'm not talking about head hair! We went to complain, and were offered the chance of inspecting some other rooms to take one of our choice. Front of house staff took us around, and all the rooms we were shown on the second floor were of the same quality. Even the lovely lady who showed us around was shocked. After inspecting 7 rooms we eventually found one on the 3rd floor that was cleaned to a high standard. One can only assume that the chambermaid cleaning the second floor was not doing her job properly. Unfortunately our misfortune didn't end there. We had a sleepless night with one of the ceiling lights flickering on and off until 3am at which point my husband bashed it and it turned off. We were offered a free bottle of wine, or a free breakfast but decided not to accept either, firstly as we were driving, and secondly as we were quite put out at the hygiene standards of the hotel. On the plus side, the staff were very friendly and helpful, however I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Our 4th visit to this hotel we stayed here from 27th to 30th dec, as we did last year just what you need after the stress of Christmas. Super friendly staff , the foods is amazing, we ate in the restaurant each night . We also had 2 treatments each and used spa again amazing....I would highly recommend this hotel , and can’t wait to return .

Stayed at this hotel on 27th and 28th December. Great location for town centre and local attractions. Room was clean very comfortable and the food was excellent. Staff were really nice and very helpful. Leisure facilities were very good as well. Couldn't fault the place and would recommend it.

A beautiful old converted school with nice rooms in a fantastic location in the centre of town, right next to the castle. A pleasant bar and a decent breakfast option. Parking a little limited but free for guests at the hotel if you can get a space. Overall, recommend, would stay here again.

The room was large and comfortable. Bed was perfect for sleep and lounging.The pool facilities were good and uncrowded. The only downside to our stay was the breakfast which was rather poor quality in terms of food and choice. The young service staff (especially the east europeans) were helpful and attentive but the senior staff managing lacked organisation and interpersonal skills. Not at all good value and we skipped the last day of breakfast as a result.

Stayed here for Christmas 3 days On unpacking I moved a chair to find dog poo under it all be very small piece Flushed it down toilet. Tried to put it out of my mind didn't want to create fuss after all it was xmas eve. Sat down later on with glass of wine looked over towards long mirror on wall and there was the evidence of dog Nose marks on bottom of mirror Spoke to housekeeping and compensation was bottle of wine and some chocolates Not satisfactory but again by this time it was xmas day Surely hotels could keep set rooms for dogs or if I had my way kennels outside Await a reply

We’ve stayed here a few times and like the location. Check in was swift and polite. Room 106 just along the corridor from reception and stairs down to the street. Room is a good size and had everything we needed. Old building so the curtains keep the cold out and heating is easy to work. The bathroom on first sight is nice, but closer inspection the paint work is needing re-done round the woodwork and the shower is outdated. We had dinner in the hotel on first night, very quiet. The bar area is very quiet if you are looking for a livelier atmosphere I suggest you go down into the town centre. Dinner was nice, quickly serviced and of a good standard. Pool/spa area is nice again could do with a bit of a revamp. Old £1 for lockers but is provided at reception. On checking the website we realised there was Christmas party nights in when we were there. The function room is desperate. But when we arrived instantly the 2 rooms on either side were there for a night out. 2am in the morning it was like a full blown meeting was happening outside our door. The rooms are in no way sound proof at all. I’ve stayed in plenty of hotels where the sound is a lot less. On check out we were asked how our stay was and I explained about the noise and was told it was difficult to keep the party goers separate from the other areas. Total cross purposes so I payed our room service plus our stay which was weird I’ve never paid for my stay after I’ve stayed? Final note, £14.99 each for breakfast. We went to the Wetherspoons down the hill and had breakfast for £3.95 each.
