Stayed overnight on Saturday 22nd February. This hotel is a little gem, quite difficult to find on the Stirling 'one way' system (even with directions) but absolutely worth the effort.
The rooms are quite small but have everything you need. The hotel itself has a lovely 'warm' feel to it, the staff are very pleasant and helpul and the food is excellent. When you factor in the location (could not be more central) and the price (£85 for a couple with a three course dinner, bed and breakfast) I think this place is pretty unbeatable.
If we'd had more time, we'd have loved to have stayed for at least a couple more nights.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel dates back to 1786, one of Stirling's first hotels filled with old world charm in a friendly environment. IN THE HEART of historic Stirling, the Golden Lion Hotel has for more than two centuries welcomed guests including royalty and even the national bard, Rabbie Burns (plaque on wall by front door in acknowledgement of his stay). Nowadays the ideal setting for leisure, business and special occasions, the family-owned Golden Lion provides traditional Scottish hospitality in thoroughly modern style. From the splendid buffet breakfast to the contemporary comforts of the 67 beautifully rooms and the timeless elegance of the stunning Regency Ballroom, this is a hotel with character as well as professional commitment. Close to magnificent Stirling Castle, and a short trip from the famous Monument to William Wallace, the Golden Lion makes an ideal base for the tourist. Practical advantages add to the appeal: the hotel’s city centre location - with free car parking - is only a few minutes drive from the national motorway network. The principal bus and rail stations are within easy walking distance(5 minutes)of the Golden Lion’s front door. There is an excellent choice of shops on the doorstep next to the Thistle indoor shopping Mall. The warmth of our welcome awaits you! Free WIFI available in all public & conference areas. ... more less
