On arrival the receptionist was very helpful, we were given a room on the ground floor. It was very clean and tidy. Adequate facilities within the room, maybe a hook or two in the bathroom to hang wet towels up could be arranged. Tribute band on the first evening which didn't finish till well after midnight then noisy guest leaving to get on a coach , made sleeping before 1am impossible. Might be an idea to advise guests of the tribute night when they book. Same receptionist on the following morning, again very helpful. Breakfast was typical Scottish and a good start to the day. Receptionist arranged a taxi to our wedding venue, seemed to multi task as she also served in the bar. Good choice of spirits and mixers in the bar and reasonably priced. Only had one meal in the bar which was served appetisingly by a pleasant bar manager. All in all a good stay at this reasonably priced hotel.

Room Tip: Check whether there is a tribute band on when booking as these are held regularly and can affect sle...

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. I will certainly pass your kind comments onto Lorraine & Alan. We host numerous events in the Ballroom throughout the year and i agree that we should inform guests that functions do not finish until 1am. Sorry if it disturbed your sleep. Again thank you for your review.

Just been to the King Robert Hotel in Bannockburn and found that it needs a bit of money spending on it.
The carpets on the stairs and the bedrooms were dirty and smelt musty in places and a bit unhealthy.
The bathroom needed a complete over hall, the toilet was set at an angle and the bath was dated.
Meals had to be ordered for evening meal for all courses i.e.: starter main and sweet at the same time as we sat down
Breakfast was the best meal as it was all self service.
With a bit of a tweak and updating in places and more customer care this could be a good hotel in a very nice and pleasant area of Scotland
The service at Dinner was very very slow.
The main course was all served with everything on the plate No Dish with Vegetables of gravy in a boat.
When we had Mash potatoes they were out of a packet and when it was steak pie the steak was from a tin and a bit of pastry put on top.
The entertainment was fair but the staff kept walking across in front of the entertainer to get in and out of the restaurant which was very bad.
The hotel let in locals to the bar so you had to drink with them.
They had a Disco one night for the locals that was very noisy.

Dear Guest
Thank you for your comments on the Trip Advisor site. I have uploaded pictures of the new carpets that were being fitted the day after your stay. You mention service at Dinner was slow, when you are with a party of 40 it does take time to serve a 3 course meal given time also to digest between courses. The Steak we use is scottish and is sourced from our local butcher. On a Monday Evening there is a Dance Class held in our Large Function room, i am not aware of any complaints of noise from this class. Our Cocktail Bar is open every day, and we are delighted that our local community supports us.

I had to organise accommodation for twenty plus for a family gathering over the May Bank holiday weekend. The manager was terrific and was able to accommodate all the changes that were inevitably made, including wheelchair usage. The meals were excellent and the staff very accommodating, particularly having fifteen decide at short notice to have their second evening meal there. The steaks were spot on. Nothing was problem, even to having to leave behind to be collected later. All who stayed were very complementary of staff and food. The only comment was that it could do with a refurbishment soon – in line with the new Bannockburn center next door?

Lovely staff and a great location, but this hotel is sadly let down by the extremely poor standard of its rooms. We had experience of 3 rooms during our stay all of which were dark dingy and not very clean. Extremely dated and shabby, poorly decorated in desperate need of refurbishment. Beds were very old and uncomfortable too. You would get much better value for your money elsewhere.

This is a 70s cornflake-box-architecture sort of place, but it is right beside the Bannockburn battle site and just a 5-minute drive into central Stirling. The staff are all lovely, the room was clean (but cold until the heating came on in the evening) and it feels very safe for a solo woman traveller.
Food is stuck in the 1970s too, but what they do they do well.

We were there for a tribute weekend. Rooms are well past their sell by date - corridor carpets look really dirty. On the plus side - price was okay, meals were really good and staff very pleasant. Nice outdoor surrounding and handy for Stirling.
