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.

Hotel's Favourite
Spent a very comfortable night in the Holiday Inn Express in Stirling. Everything we needed was readily available and in excellent condition. Our one extra request was handled immediately. Comfortable lounge area downstairs. Special note of appreciation for Jamie and Suzanne at the front desk who were both personable, kind and helpful, and always there when we needed them.

Let me start with the hotel itself: it is OK, you get what you expect and the staff is nice. You have to pay extra for parking, which is not unusual, but make sure that you do it yourself at the machine, because you might get yourself a nice 95£/day fine by the lovely Parkmaven company. So the short story is that the parkinglot is under this company and not under the hotel, and at our arrival we had the option to let the hotel handle the parking, we can pay for it at the end, which I did. Something must have gone wrong, because 2 months later I received a citation for 190£ under the name of unpaid parking, which was also charged from my debit card, since the rental company also received the citation and they have my detaills. I wrote to the hotel 2x, and I also have a correspondence with Parkmaven itself, but nothing has been refunded even after 5 months, and the most ridiculus thing is that the parkin company claims that they only cancelled half of the fine, the rest is still unsettled and they will contact me soon how I can settle it... This whole situation is nonsense, save yourself the headache and only visit this establishment if you won't use the parking, it turned my 200£ stay into an unpleasant 390£ experience

Quiet, clean hotel, with friendly staff and perfectly adequate breakfast. The only snag was a ripped duvet cover in my bed. Other than that it was great. Parking was fine, no additional charges. You do have to register your car at the reception but that’s about it.

Overnight stay at the Holiday Inn on way home from a break . We arrived early and were able to check in which was a bonus . Room was lovely and clean and spacious. Front desk staff were very helpful as was a wee lady at breakfast . Always a great selection for breakfast and something to suit everyone this is why we love a holiday inn express .

This was an ideal stop off for our trip to Scotland. Room was a family room which is the smallest we’ve ever been in. Double bed with sofa bed for 2 children to share which wasn’t ideal (16 and 11 years old) Rooms were ok other than the size, only 2 cups were provided for 4 people. The room needed a good hoover though and was quite dusty. Breakfast was an absolute nightmare, we didn’t have to book a time which always creates hassle. Was far too busy, the smallest area to sit people and queuing for breakfast where you have to pick up cutlery before food, and try juggle everything, then go back for drinks into the smallest area. It’s a bad layout really, we ended up eating in another little side room. The food was good though, can’t fault that, just not much choice for continental options. Also to note we had a dog with us, not sure of this was why we were put into a small family room.

The hotel where every member of staff say hello and make sure you have everything you need. Rooms clean and as expected for the good rate, breakfast good too especially for a days hiking. Great location for visiting the Trossacks or just Stirling.

Had a very good experience at the hotel. Staff were very friendly. Dog friendly; was given a ground floor room to accommodate the dog easier and a nice dog welcome bag on arrival. Breakfast is good and included. Cereal, small hot food selection, bread and pastries. Ideal location for the sports centre. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Would stay again.

Got there after a hard and long 5 hour drive. When I checked in no mention from the staff about parking charges and just received a £100 parking ticket. I've stayed there a few times 5 or more years ago and parking was always free. Never again.
