In all, this is a pleasant discovery.
Quiet accommodation close to Stirling University (where I was on business), comfortable room and very clean.

Breakfast was excellent - a wide choice and excellently cooked, although Zoe Ball on Radio Two in the mornings grated (saying that Zoe Ball grates at any time).

The bar/waiting and restaurant staff are to be commended, less so the member of reception staff who on check out only asked if I had any extras on my room, no "how was your stay" and, to be honest, I am unsure if I got a "goodbye" or "thank you"

Not wanting to press a point - often the "how was your stay" question is a platitude, but it makes guests feel valued nonetheless.

It was kind of you to give us such a great review despite our channel of choice for Breakfast Radio. Thank you too for your kind comment about the service from our bar and restaurant team, though I’m so very disappointed we did not give you a warm send off, on departure. We’ll act on your feedback and only hope you’ll give us another chance so that we can demonstrate great improvement to you. Thanks again for taking time to highlight this. Kind regards, Gail

I stayed on a Sunday night and unfortunately the pool was only open for a few hours in the morning so no opportunity to use it, and as you have to vacate by 10am next morning gave me no time to use what seems a great pool. The hours Mon to Fri are excellent. The room was fairly basic but clean and the Wi-Fi worked OK. The restaurant is excellent and the breakfast was fantastic. For what you lose on a Sunday at the pool you can make up on great rate deals, I got mine on bookin.com for £33 including full breakfast and I reckon that was a great deal. Not sure if I could justify the standard room rate during the week as it is a bit impersonal.

Room Tip: The whole hotel are in quiet surroundings so all sides are good

as a part of the campus you gain access to the university facilities which are excellent. the hotel is spotless but impersonal. i cant fault it but prefer a more down to earth setting. staff very pleasant,
room nice, lovely setting

Tried to review this last year but it did not show. My wife and I attend the SASA Past President's Dinner each year and this has been held here during the past few years. It is an ideal hotel with excellent accommodation and breakfast facilities. Staff are always very positive and friendly. The Dinner occasion we experience is excellent with very prompt, efficient service. Accommodation and meal costs are very reasonable. We look forward to our return visit at the end of February 2014. Highly recommended to anyone organising a corporate event.

Room Tip: There really is no problem. All are good. You can check the outdoor view but really the University...

Thank you, I'm heartened to read your complimentary review of the Annual Dinner, it seems you both really enjoyed the night. I'm pleased and proud that we have helped to make the event a success. We are certainly looking forward to hosting the event again this year and welcoming you both back.

I can only thank the lovely front office staff for a very hospitable stay at the SMC. Room Service too was always spot on; dinner or breakfast; and WIFI in the room was excellent for my work after IT fixed me up with an ethernet cable. What the ambiance of the place lacks the staff professionalism makes up for. Even rowdy weekend weddings were just a necessary bore because of the hassle-free stay this property represents. Good job!

Room Tip: As there is no elevator those with large luggage should request ground floor.

I stayed at the management centre to get started on my xmas shopping. It was a pleasant stay the room was comfortable and clean the staff are helpful and friendly. There was a wedding function on the date of my stay the staff still managed to cater to non wedding guests efficiently. We had our evening meal here which was very nice a bit on the cold side due to the restaurant being used for the wedding and other hotel guests seated a bit further away from the kitchen however still enjoyable. I liked I was told about the function at the time of booking giving me the option to book elsewhere I was not disturbed by the wedding function peaceful relaxed stay.

Thanks for your review and kind words about our team here. I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay, and had some peace & relaxation before the rush of Christmas. What a fun idea too - getting the shopping off to a great start then reward yourself by letting us prepare dinner and look after you. Following a taxing day of retail therapy you really deserve it!! I hope to welcome you back again sometime soon - please don't wait until December for your next visit!
