I booked this for a family meal as my stop off on our journey to scotland. We were shown to our table, I looked across to the next table and a pet dog was sitting on the bench seat with its two owners at the table sharing a chicken meal. The owner was feeding chicken to the dog and also the dog was eating scraps off the table. I complained to the waitress whose only solution was to move us to another area of the restaurant out of site of this dogfest. There was no comment from the waitress other than it was a "DOG FRIENDLY" area. In my book dog freindly means they are allowed into the restaurant under close control and they stay on the floor. I checked the restaurants dog friendly policy which was clearly displayed in a frame on the window sill and this said that dogs were not allowed on the furniture! This was a clear breach of their own policy. I spoke to the manager after we had eaten our meal and he said he was powerless to stop the dog eating at the table, he also said the couple were regular customers! I told him that our planned visit on our return journey would now be changed to a different restaurant as the situation was completely unacceptable and very upsetting. If you go there make sure you check the table and chairs for dog hair and slobber.

Booked as a no frills overnight stop on the way to Thurso and close to the motorway. Room clean, comfortable and ideal for our needs. Ate in the pub across from the hotel for both evening meal and breakfast both of which involved a good choice and were well prepared and presented. Would happily stay again if making a similar trip to the far north

We arrived after an 8 1/2 journey from Yorkshire, due to the heavy traffic and roadworks. Check in was smooth and our room was more than adequate . We were advised that the kitchen did not accept orders after 8.30 pm, so we ordered and was not disappointed. Both the food and drinks were served by pleasant, young staff, who were more than happy to see to our every need and generally chat. A credit to the Marston chain. Our meals were hot, tasty and plentiful. The bar and restaurant is clean, well set out, and nicely decorated. The rooms are in a separate block away from the main bar and restaurant. There is no reception available - everything is managed from the bar area. This is probably due to the fact that like many, they are short staffed due to the current isolation rules. We stayed for two nights at the beginning of our 10 day tour of Scotland and were more than happy with the experience. Tea, coffee and biscuits supplied in the room were more than sufficient for the two nights. The bathroom is clean and plenty spacious with clean towels, showergel and handwash available. Both mornings we also had breakfast which similarly to the evening meals, was hot tasty and plentiful. Although the beds were hard, they suited us - the bedding was clean and crisp. Overall, yes we were pleasantly surprised and would stay again. The area is near a building site (over the road), but this is clearly a developing area just off the motorway.

This place is awful. Four stars it certainly isn't. We arrived only to discover we were next door to the lodge (the picture on the website) near a construction site. The beds were on a slant, the TV didn't work and the air con was faulty, and this was the second room we had to move all our belongings to. We did not feel safe here as the hotel (if you can call it that) was open 24hrs and nobody was at the reception. No telephone in the rooms therefore you had to traipse back and forth across the carpark to the lodge if you had a complaint. Tough luck if its the middle of the night as all staff from the lodge finish at midnight and nobody is around. The lodge served food which was a disaster. I ordered the chicken and sent it back as it was raw. Rotisserie it certainly is not. The whites lemonade was flat. This place is run by kids who are out of there depth trying to deal with problems. When we moved to the second room because the TV wasn't working in the first, I asked the supervisor if someone else was taking the room and that they would have the same issue. He just shrugged, that says it all. The website will show restaurants that are under 1 mile away absolute rubbish you need to take the car. The only decent restaurant was the river house which was quite near. Stirling is a nice place with lots to see, just make sure you avoid this place if your planning to stay.
