The Stirling Highland Hotel
Ranked #4 of 20 Hotels in Stirling
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is a nice hotel close to Stirling Castle and in the vicinity of the city centre. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite large and everything was clean. At least my room in the ground floor could do with a little refurbishment. It was very windy when I stayed at the hotel and the windows did not properly shut which resulted in some noise. Apart from this is ways a pleasant stay and I can recommend this hotel.

The Marine Highland Hotel has created a superb hotel using all the features of the converted school,with its' very own Harry Potter atmosphere. Staff and environment excellent. Thank you for everything including the visit to the observatory

We had a short break here to celebrate our anniversary and the staff and service was excellent. We had a lovely note, a bottle of wine and chocolates waiting for us when we arrived, which was an unexpected bonus. Well done guys!
The pool was fantastic as was the sauna and steam room. The gym looked in great working order although we weren't here long enough to try it out and if you're into squash, there's also a court to play on.
We had an excellent afternoon tea but were not able to cope with an evening meal in the restaurant. Instead we shared a platter in the bar area. There was a choice of meats, fish, cheese and vegetarian platters. I would say the only negative point was the small roll which we shared between us. One each would have been better!
Our room was well appointed and because we were on a corner of the building, we had windows on two sides, which could be opened more than the usual standard 1" which you get in many other hotels.

Room Tip: We had room 300 which had great views and of the main road up to Stirling Castle. We had sun coming...

Hotel rooms are good quality and very clean. Wifi and internet signal is lacking but that greatly depends on your room. Restaurant boasts some great dishes especially on the specials list. Problem is the menu never changes so don't expect any surprises if you visit more than once. Staff are mostly polite and give great service.

Room Tip: try to specify that you need a room with good signal

Liked the location of the hotel and its appearance and that's why we booked the hotel. At the arrival we were not disappointed, the quality of the hotel,facilities and the room were very good. The only negative thing we had to say is that the air in the restaurant and bar rooms were very stuffy and hot. Even if you don´t have air condition you can open the windows.

This was my husband and I's 2nd stay in the Highland Hotel and like the 1st it was very enjoyable! We were over for our son's Graduation ceremony at Stirling University so because of this the hotel is part of the overall package that will always be remembered very fondly by us!
The rooms are spacious, clean and come with robe and slippers - shower not powerful by any means but served its purpose! Decor may seem a bit dated but as I previously mentioned I feel this is part of the charm and the overall look of this hotel.
The hotel is very convenient to the centre of town and for all the other students parents out there needing accommodation whilst visiting your off spring and indeed like us to very proudly attend their Son/daughter's Graduation, it is 5-10 min drive from the university!!!
No ones customer service stood out this time - staff all pleasant enough in the dining area - reception staff just ok - no welcoming smile or warm Scottish welcome! This however didn't dampen the joyous occasion that we came to stay for. Certainly worth a visit when staying in Stirling - thank you!
