My husband and I stayed at Broomhall Castle to celebrate our wedding anniversary on 24th May, we booked a four poster room which was just lovely and so big, on arrival we were met by Scott who showed us to our room very promptly and told us if there was anything we needed just to ask. The castle is very picturesque and quite the romantic setting. We had our evening meal which was delightful, compliments to the chef. We enjoyed some refreshments in the very tranquil lounge and chatted to the staff who were all very helpful and friendly throughout our short stay. If it is a romantic setting and a quiet place you are looking for I would certainly recommend Broomhall Castle. When we told them it was our anniversary we were given a complimentary drink which was a lovely gesture. Our trip was finished of by a traditional Scottish breakfast. Would definitely visit again.

We have just returned from a 3 day, 2 night stay over as part of my wife's 50 birthday celebrations, and we loved it, the owner Ty and his staff could not have been more helpful, courteous and polite if they had tried. It is a great base for exploring the local sites and beautiful scenery, we will definitely be returning.

King sized bed with very lovely linen, extremely helpful staff who shared their knowledge of the area and really improved our overall experience of Scotland, as well as a very comfortable lounge area and breakfast room. Very close to Sterling Castle. Unless you're wiling to drive for dinner, I would recommend dining with the hotel as the immediate area does not provide many options.

Attended a recent family wedding. There is no book in reception however staff very quick to meet, greet and showed us to our room. The staff were attentive throughout our stay taking time to ensure our 9 year old daughters needs we're attended to. We were given a family room which was massive with good en suite facilities. Best sleep I've had in a hotel the bed was great. We did not hear any music from the party when we went back to our room. The food was of a high quality and good portions. Ask the kitchen for salmon parcels you will be amazed. A pleasant stay which was down to attentive staff. Thanks

We recently spent three nights in Broomhall Castle which I'm afraid was enough. The atmosphere and staff were great, especially Ann, Scott and David but the bathroom, although it looked fabulous, was awful. No heat at all, no towel rail, no proper mirror or lighting, no bin. At least we had a shelf which other bathrooms don't have. The food was ok but plates cold. We felt the place has amazing potential but needs a lot of basic improvements.

Hi Rachel thank you for leaving a review and sorry to hear you thought our room was awful, I am not sure how to respond as no one has ever complained before about any of our bathrooms, and had you pointed this out to us at the time especially about there being no lighting (I for one would have certainly made a point of telling someone I had no lighting in my bathroom as would not be able to see what I was doing!!) Yes not all our rooms have towel rails, but the ones that don't do have stands and shelving for towels.. As for the plates being cold, to be honest this is a British thing as no where else in the world do people expect plates to be hot, if the food is hot then there should not be a requirement for the plates to be hot

Thank you once again for leaving the review

Regards

This an interesting hotel built in the late 1800's. The rooms are generous in many ways but in ours we could have done with more light - only 1 bedside light & 1 downlighter in the bathroom. We're retired & the room was up 4 flights of stairs - not easy - & the lift was well unique! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff & breakfast was excellent. A place out of the "rush & stress" of every day life. However, had we paid full price for the room we would not have been happy, but, the discounted price was fair. A car is essential to visit this hotel as it is some way from the main road up a steep twisty incline. Views over the kerse of Stirling are fantastic.

There is no reception desk as such, but as soon as we arrived the attendant arrived to check us in and show us to our rooms so not a problem. Rooms and bathrooms are large and contain everything needed (however, I say this with reservation as one room was fully equipped; the other room was missing milk, as discovered when I went to make a morning tea, and had only bath towels, no hand towels or bath mat - there was no phone to ring down, so I let it ride). Great building with that nice historic feel, although the lounge and bar areas are a bit sparse. Feel that it was overpriced for what it is - asking price per night was pounds 105 per double room, but I believe you can find it cheaper. One thing that let it down was the meal - restricted menu, which would have been fine if the food was excellent, but although the presentation and service was good and the food plentiful, my chicken dish was dry and the steak, although tasty, was on the tough side. Definitely room for improvement here, and we also found it expensive.

thank you for leaving a review for us, and sorry to hear you were not completely happy with your stay, if you had informed us that there was an issue with your room and missing items we would have remedied this immediately, if no one tells us there is nothing we can do about it but I can assure you (as you pointed out that the other room was fine) this was just an over sight and unfortunately down to human error things do get missed every so often although we try our best not to miss anything at all..
I am also a little disappointed that you found our 6 choice 3 course menu restricted and overpriced (the most you could have paid is £30 for three courses) and as you can see from 99% of the reviews on here our food is what everyone raves about so I will put this down to personal taste, if in the unlikely event that your steak was tough we would have replaced this immediately for you

I do hope that one day you will be able to return to us so we can show you that this is a one of unfortunate situation

Regards and thanks

Rod
