“Superb return visit”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Last August we stayed here for two nights at the beginning of a three week holiday in Scotland. We were very impressed by Alison's attention to detail and excellent hospitality. As we left she mentioned her on line deals for this April, so whilst still on holiday we booked to stay 4 nights as an Easter break, which we have just returned from. Again we were very pleased to stay with Alison and enjoy the high standards of the Old Tram House. We have now stayed in the family room and the double room on the top floor and both are very comfortable. Breakfast is very good value too and the variety on offer means you can enjoy a very large Scottish breakfast or a lighter option. Alison works hard on maintaining the premises and we saw the improvements she has made for this year. Alison also took care of us by booking evening meals and introducing us to an excellent Indian restaurant in the city centre - we went twice. We will hope to return and say as part of our many Scottish holidays as Stirling is a very good base to explore so much in the area and the Old Tram House in Alison's care is definitely an excellent place to stay. Thanks Alison!

Room Tip: We have seen all the rooms and each one is different but of the same excellent standard. We especial...

HI ,
Thank you so very much for your lovely review for us here.
It's so good to know that you enjoyed your stay here and found the breakfast so yummy.
Good to know too that location was great for you ,Causewayhead road is on a main bus route and so easy to reach town in under five minutes by bus or car , also great as if you dont have a car is easy to get the local buses as we have a bus stop across from the property and just to the right of us for coming back the way.
Buses also passing to to St Andrews , Perth etc. which for any one without a car is great.
And of course easy to walk to The William Wallace monument , Stirling University ect.
I hope if coming back to Stirling you'll book here with us as Stirling is also an ideal touring place.
Thank you again and hope to see you soon.
Warmest kindest regards.
Alison.

Me and my dad stayed here during our stay in Stirling. We felt very welcome Alison was amazing she helped us with anything we needed also we slept like kings in the amazing beds very comfortable. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever tried although we did consume a lot of alcohol we was unable to finish the breakfast which we felt guilty about. But if im back in the area this will be the only place I stay id recommend it to anyone in my opinion the best I've ever stayed at absolutely brilliant beautiful interior and great service so I hope to see you again Alison many thanks for your hospitality.

Stayed here last night and can honestly say the service, friendliness and rooms were everything I could have wanted! Alison helped me print my boarding pass out too which I couldn't have done anywhere else so she was a big big help. The rooms were lovely, the breakfast was superb, and (almost) everything else was perfect. Only one criticism is that it would be good to have blackout curtains, but it's a minor thing cos I sleep through anything anyway!

Room Tip: If you're tall, some beds have an "end" on them....

HI.
Thank you so much for this great review.
I'm so glad you found all very comfortable and the breakfast great for you .
It was a real pleasure to meet you and I was only too happy to help with your boarding pass.
I'm glad you are recommending and would be happy to book back here with us .
Can we just add that the curtains in this room are now black out , apologies ,when we upgraded I forgot to do this , especially as all the other rooms have them.
Now sorted and please come back and try, I would be delighted to see you book again.
Kind warm thanks

Recently stayed at The Old Tram House Sterling while on holiday and loved the B+B, enjoyed the visit very much. Great place to stay, the house is beautiful and good value. Good surrounding scenery to area and close to The William Wallace Monument which is well worth visiting.
