Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My daughter and I stayed at Linden Guest House for three nights. The hosts, Carol and Jim, were very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, within walking distance of the old town, where there are many good restaurants, and Stirling Castle. It’s also about a 5-10 minute walk to the train station. The breakfast was very good. They also have two adorable dogs, Willow and Mac. I’d recommend Linden Guest House and will stay there if I ever am in the area again.

First and foremost, Carol is a wonderfull hostess and our two-night-stay at the Linden Guest house was a lovely way to end our trip to Scotland. The questhouse is a stones' throw away from the city centre and a large supermarket. It only took us maybe 10 minutes to walk up to main shopping street of Stirling, but the guesthouse is situated in a residential enough area that you're able to park your car on the road in front of the house for free. Our double room was around 160 pounds for two nights. This comes down to around 40 pounds per person per night, which I think is very affordable anyway. Considering how perfect everything is, it is even a better deal! Our room and bathroom were spacious, modern and very clean. Also, I loved the decor and furniture. The bed was big and lovely, there was a TV, a nice desk with mirror, a big wardrobe, bedside tables and a lounge chair. Everything looked crisp and very stylish. Also, I loved all of the additions that you wouldn't normally find at a guesthouse. Examples are the make up mirror, mini fridge, the fan and the little bookcase on the landing. This made me feel like no expenses were spared and the owners really thought of their guest comfort. Another nice touch was the binder with a ton of information on the city, it's history, the attractions and places to eat. I could tell a lot of time and effort went into making it. Breakfast was good too. There was the option of cooked breakfast, which was taken and prepared to order. Aside from that, there was a buffet style continental breakfast. Think different kinds of cereals, fresh fruits, yoghurts, deli meats and cheeses and some breadrolls. Everything was lovely, except I would have preferred fresh rolls, instead of the ones they had in plastic. However, I do get this choice from a food waste point of view. Upon checking out, we were able to pay by card, which was perfect as well. Carol was happy to chat and hard working and I also loved her two little dogs. Unfortunately we haven't had the pleasure to meet Jim. In the future I would definitely stay at this guesthouse again and if family or friends decide to venture of to Scotland, I will tell them to stay here!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this bed and breakfast. The bed room and shower room was very clean indeed and the room was nicely presented. The cooked breakfast and breakfast buffet was good. The fridge in the room was welcome as we put proper milk in for our tea and coffee in the room and we got picnic stuff so we could do some packed lunches for our day trips. Our hosts were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. There were lots of drawers and wardrobes to put your stuff. We would come back for sure. Parking nearby.

We spent 5 nights and had a great experience. Jim prepared a great breakfast everyday, including fruit, yogurt, cereal, and a full hot breakfast if you desire. Jim went out of his way to make our stay great. It is only a short 1/2 mile walk to the tourist area and even shorter to places to shop and eat. Don't miss staying here. The dogs, Willow and Mack are helping Jim bring out breakfast every day.

We stayed at this wonderful guest house for three nights, then had to reluctantly return home. Carol and Jim made us very welcome, we had the spacious family room with comfy beds, small fridge and microwave. The bathroom had a bath and shower unit. The breakfast was very enjoyable, we tend not to have the cooked one except for poached eggs, but the continental and the different fruits were outstanding with as much toast, tea and coffee as you wanted. We were able to park right outside and the walk into town was 7 minutes, where there are plenty of places to eat. Would highly recommend and look forward to a return visit

Linden Guest House, run by Carole & Jim, is very warm and welcoming. Hearty Scottish breakfast is very tasty, porridge,cereal, fruit, yoghurts, croissants are also available. Surprised to learn that Carole&Jim have only run the business for 4 years, with returning customers which we will be in future. Microwave in room, very helpful also fridge which is useful for keeping food etc cool in hot summers. Carole & Jim will do their best to serve up what you require if possible. Ideal location for children who have come to attend Stirling University, which is situated in magnificent grounds. My sisters and I stayed for 10 days, taking numerous train journeys - Edinburgh 1 hour, Inverness in under 3 hours and Perth is only 45 minutes away, all wonderful shopping experiences and well worth the trips. The train and bus station is only a 15 minute walk way, right near town centre. Jim also run us to the train station on a very wet day, which was 'no trouble to him' but a great help to us. We ate in the award winning fish&chip shop THE BLUE LAGOON, which deserves it's accolade, anything ordered is freshly cooked and very tasty, clean plates all round. There is also a very beautiful tea-room in town centre called BLUEBELL TEAROOM, which is well worth a visit, sandwiches and cakes are so fresh and delicious, very friendly and helpful staff. There is also numerous restaurants in town, with tastes to suit all.
