Friendly staff and clean tidy room with hairdryer, trouser press, shampoo/conditioner, shower gel, etc... Only minor quibble - it is not the quietest of hotels.

Breakfast was superb and the lunch time buffer was very tasty. It looked like a popular conference centre as there were a few groups (incl Visit Scotland, Historic Scotland, etc) there for a conference.

OK, so it is not the Ritz, but it is much better than some Travelodges that I have been!

As a starter we had a double room which according to latebeds was heavily discounted. I think that a single room was a very good price according to them. The price was OK for the double. This is in Bridge of Allan, at Stirling university, which is about 10 mins drive from Stirling centre. We took the bus into town £4.00 return and the stop was just down the road at the university past the swimming pool. This is obviously very good if you have a course at the university. It was very quiet and functional. I found it a little soulless and it made me think of slightly upgraded university accommodation but it was clean and everything worked well. Breakfast was good and plenty of it and the service was efficient. Finishing breakfast service at 9am and 10 am checkout is a little early I think.

My husband and I stayed here the last week in April. We had seen the hotel had a good rating and were very much looking forward to our stay.
We were impressed on arrival but that very much changed once we got to our room.
The room did not live up to our expectations we could hear everything that was happening at the reception, in the hall and in other rooms. The "double" bed was very small and there were holes in the sheets. I would say these rooms are more like dorm rooms for students and not worth the money when you can get cheaper rooms at travel lodges and premier inns with better facilities. All in a very bad experience and will not be back.

Thank you very much for taking the time and making the effort to give us your review. I am so sorry we did not meet your expectations and I apologise for the quality of bedding. This is certainly not the standard for which we aim and I appreciate very much your feedback as it allows me to review our processes and make the necessary improvements to ensure this is not repeated. I do apologise once again for the poor stay you experienced and hopefully you may consider us for the future and allow us an opportunity to demonstrate our normal high standard of service.Thanks again, Gail

This is a review of the restauant only at the management centre. We had been given a Groupon voucher for a 3 course meal for 2 and booked for a Saturday evening. On entering the dining room we found it to be very bare, quite clinical, and not very warm! We were seated at a table and given the menu. We noticed right away that most of the courses on the set Groupon menu all had an addtional supplement, which in some cases were quite high. In fact every course my husband chose carried an extra cost which added up to over £15!
I ordered the salmon to start and although the dish when it arrived was well presented, the salmon was the size of a 50p piece with a piece of seaweed wrapped around it. I had then chosen the sea bass which came with only vegetables and lentils. THe sea bass was barely 1.5 ins in length and did not take long to eat!!!
I would not recommend the Groupon deal and the table behind us had chosen from the main menu and had several complaints about their meal as well.
A disappointing experience unfortunately.

Premier Inn standard... or maybe slightly lower. Very good value with breakfast included. Lovely bar food. On the downside ... our bathroom door did not fit so did not close, shower took a long time to heat up, a few cobwebs, paper thin walls.

But as they say you get what you pay for so if you are looking for a good value stay in Stirling then it will be hard to beat. Booking.com had lower rates than the facilities own website. If you are after a romantic break then choose somewhere else.

This is a purpose built centre within Stirling University and is used not only as a hotel but conference centre and wedding venue.
We came here after purchasing a Groupon voucher for a 3 course dinner for two and we weren't disappointed. We opted to sit in the conservatory which has a wonderful view of the Wallace Monument nearby.
The ambience was relaxing with the background music at just the right volume. Rachel, our waitress was very welcoming and helpful throughout.
The varied menu meant we had a difficult choice but I really loved the mushroom pate with my husband going for the salmon starter. Our mains were sea bass and a succulent fillet steak - the chef definitely knows what he/she is doing as the food was beautifully presented and tasted superb. There was a surcharge for one or two things on the menu (which is quite normal in most restaurants) but that didn't bother us as it was still great value. We'd had our sweet course when we overheard the people at another table asking for a cheeseboard (it wasn't written on the menu) so we ordered one for us to share too!
All in all, great food, comfortable surroundings and great service. What more can you ask for?

Thanks so much for your fantastic review and top score rating. It’s just great to hear you had such a lovely night and enjoyed the food – we are really proud of the chefs. While the kitchen team have won awards for their creative dishes and food quality, the greatest compliment for them is when you, our guests enjoy their meals!! Thanks again, Gail

I shared a room here with a co-worker for 2 nights while we attended a meeting on campus. The Centre is perfectly located for that sort of stay! The room had really lovely beds, covers, blankets, pillows and the shower was great. We also had a magnificent view of the Wallace monument from our room. The breakfast was good - not outstanding, but good. My only real disappointment was that the exercise facilities that were advertised as part of the Centre, were not in the building (down the street) and because it was during a U break, they weren't open early in the morning. But, I probably would stay again!

Delighted to hear your stay nicely combined business with pleasure, and thanks for your great review. The Wallace Monument is very impressive and it has just undergone a major redevelopment of the interior galleries too so it’s well worth a visit – do come back and let us look after you while here for a leisure visit to see the local attractions – the new Bannockburn Centre has now opened and of course there’s the Safari Park for a fun time too, Hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future, Thanks, Gail
