Woodside Guesthouse
Ranked #55 of 59 Stirling B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 May 2013

At first glance, Woodside Guesthouse appears to be a standout place to stay. The outside of the guesthouse is stunning, and it's situated in an ideal location just a quick walk from beautiful Stirling's best sites. Open the front door though, and things unfortunately go down from there...

It seems as though the owners have pets living with them at the guesthouse as the lobby area smells very strongly like animals. The carpets throughout the hotel also show lots of white hair. Our room was comfortable enough (and, thankfully the animal smell didn't trickle into the room) and the front patio was pretty, but it was really in need of a deep clean. The breakfast was just plain terrible - stale cereal, white toast, and a block of cheese.

Though the hotel wasn't bad for just a one night stay, I would highly recommend checking out other area guesthouses before deciding on this one!

Reviewed 25 April 2013

I put the last review through google translate, and yes, we had the same experience. Looks ok at first glance, but filthy on a closer look. Had to boil the kettle and clean the cups before we could make a cup of tea. The floor was filthy so I had to keep my shoes on to walk around in there. Looks like a cat or dog has been living in there as the hairs were impregnated into the carpet. We had wanted to stay three nights, but left the next morning without breakfast as the place did not look or smell clean, and we were not keen to eat there. I felt sorry for the lady running the place, she was nice and friendly - but doesn't seem to be managing the place well. It was one of those awkward, 'exit stage left' moments. I am glad we escaped. Can't believe of all the places we chose this one. Live and learn!

Room Tip: don't hang around - run away

Room Tip: Mejor no ir y buscar otra alternativa. Incluso dormir en el coche es mejor.
