Good staff, good breakfast, swimming pool, sauna and steam room, lots of parking and very central location but does need an urgent upgrade now very very tired in places, apart from that I would give it 5/5

The hotel is on a great location. Otherwise average. I would like to see more refined outlook of the interiour (more decor and some flowers). It's a bit dreary. It seems like it needs a woman's touch.

The 19th Century, four-star Stirling Highland Hotel used to be the city’s high school and is just a few minutes walk from Stirling Castle and the attractions of the city. Its 98 bedrooms include 18 premium ...More bedrooms and 2 deluxe rooms and Stirling is the gateway to the Scottish Highlands so majestic mountains and tranquil lochs are close by. Enjoy the Trossach’s National Park before sampling a single malt in the hotel’s new on-site Stirling Whisky Shop. Unwind in the spa, enjoy award-winning food in the 2 AA Rosette Scholars Restaurant then relax with a nightcap in the Headmaster’s Bar. Less
