Having read some of the poor reviews of this new hotel we entered with fear and trepidation! However, we were immediately impressed by the décor in the bar and dining room, and by the friendliness of the receptionist. Indeed during our short stay we couldn't fault the staff for helpfulness and good humour. We were disappointed by the size of our bedroom. There was very little storage space, only one hard-backed chair and no place to put our cases. The bathroom was pleasant enough but I am not a fan of showers over the bath, and this bath was very difficult to get in and out of. Also, the plunger for the sink didn't work. On the positive side we found the food very good indeed. We dined in the hotel both evenings and also had afternoon tea on our first day, which was particularly good value. Special mention should be made of the aromatic duck bon bons with dipping sauce, and the scallops with battered black pudding. These starters were mouth-watering. The skin-on chips were a great disappointment! We had some difficulty in finding the hotel, but the location, just down from Stirling Castle, is excellent. We would certainly stay here again when next in Stirling, although we would hope for a larger room!
