Hillview Cottage
Ranked #24 of 59 Stirling B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 November 2011

The pictures on the website totally undersold this B&B. My room was a lovely en-suite, the setting ideal and Jon the proprietor was an excellent, friendly host. Hillview is clean and homely and I would be happy to recommend it to anyone, friend or family.
This B&B is located in an area well situated for visiting some of the most beautiful locations in central Scotland and near enough to Stirlings' historic town for shopping and exploring. Expect a hearty cooked breakfast in the morning and a warm, cosy room.
If you are looking for places to eat out, Jon will have some great suggestions that I have tried and loved! Fab, loved the experience.

Hill view Cottage B&B is indeed a lovely experience set in rural Stirling only 45 mins from Edinburgh city centre this little cottage and its host Jon were perfect for my son and I. Our visit lasted two nights and to be honest we could have stayed longer had we not had to move on to Inverness. Our room was clean and very comfortable and our Full Scottish Breakfast was enough to keep us going till well after lunchtime. The attractions close by including William Wallace monument ( well worth a look ) and Stirling castle. The free Wi-Fi was welcomed by my son and to sum up. Don't drive past Jon's Hill View Cottage the experience is exceptional and the price is inexpensive.

Room Tip: The Family room at the end of the house is so quiet and roomy

Spent a while looking for a 'Dog friendly' B&B. We were very glad to find Jon at Hill View. For four days we were treated as friends in his house, rather than a source of income. The room was all we needed and the lounge / dining area was realy comfy with good conversation in the evening. Great Scottish breakfast with special requests for the next day being no problem. Jon was realy helpful with suggestions for sights to see and places to eat. The cottage was easy to find, which was a great help after long days out touring the Trossachs!

Staff very friendly and helpful, they make you feel very comfortable. Lovely friendly feel to the place. Excellent food would recommend, mussels, macaroni and garlic mushrooms all a big must. Fabulous service, great value for money, would definitely go back.

Stayed for 2 nights over a weekend because Edinburgh was too expensive - we loved it. Jon (the owner) and his family are super friendly, and recommended the BEST pub in the next village for our meal - we went back for a second night in a row! The view from our room was gorgeous - lush Scottish paddocks and cows, with mountains in the distance. A short drive back to Stirling for sight-seeing but lovely to stay out of town.
Big Scottish breakfast was a great way to start each day and more than enough to keep us going until lunch.
Wi-fi worked well.

Please double check this accomodation, The owner denies anything that is discussed on phone.
We had two in depth conversations (he was on mobile in the garden for first) we discussed his position, how far out on the Glasgow road from Fort William was the cottage. Even when i phoned again and booked another room for our relatives there was no mention that this cottage was in Stirling.
When we rang to inform him we were running late was the only time we found out the exact location, we then informed him we were to late and would not be abble to make Stirling hedenied all conversations and promptly charged my Visa for two rooms.

Please double check or it could be a costly episode for you as it was for me

I absolutely loved this b&b because the house has a very relaxed atmosphere. I felt this was mainly due to the traditional decor and quirky ornaments and memorabilia the owner has collected from his travels. Its not one of those modern b&b's that dont always feel that welcoming. I felt at ease in the lounge area sitting with my feet up as if it was my own home. The bedroom/shower and toilet were clean and the bed really comfy. We had a lovely cooked breakfast and plenty tea/coffee. I would recommend this b/b to anyone who prefers a more homely and interesting atmosphere rather than everything being "just so". Alison, Jim and Lewis from Glasgow
