We found this by whim - we were visiting the castle and when doing more sight seeing when we inquired how much for a room. This is an old school converted into a working hotel - and like all things like this added to its charm. We stayed in room #1 which had an amazing view of both the castle and Stirling below. Our room over looked the courtyard - which is also the designated smoking areas so be warned. It has two single beds but we just pushed them together - in Spain this is not uncommon so we adopted that attitude. Other reviews were correct - there is a pad over the mattress and then a sheet on top of that only leaving a duvet. As with all the beds in Scotland this only helped to reduce the feel of the springs - but it was better than some we had slept on during our stay. We were both warm even though the windows have some cold air that leaks in from the outside and as previously mentioned after the caste was closed for the night the road became quite. The room was big enough to deal with our two large suitcases and there was a nice sized closet to hang our clothes. Our bathroom appeared to be updated but not finished - no towel racks for the towels. The shower was not powerful but clean and working fine. Breakfast was very tasty and filling and the owner was very nice and helpful. I found it very reasonable compared to other hotels and the B&B's in which we had been staying.
