“brilliant”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Absolutely brilliant from the minute Alison let us into this beautiful house and its wonderfully decorated rooms we were happy . The day was wet and miserable but the welcome was sunny and cheerful . Our room was comfort personified and every thing we needed for a comfy stay was on offer including a night cap when we came back from our evening meal .
Next morning we were treated to an excellent spread for breakfast in the well appointed breakfast room , the food was delightful and the conversation with the other guest around the table made it a pleasant occasion. We only stayed the one night but can recommend it as a must place to stay in Stirling. Well done Alison

This house is gorgeous and wonderfully decorated. Allison (owner) does an excellent job making sure all needs are met and everyone feels comfortable and welcome. My room was BEAUTIFUL and clean - even felt like a Princess staying there. My room was clean and the breakfast was amazing! It is just about a 40 min walk to downtown Stirling and maybe a 15 min walk to the William Wallace Monument so it is well located.Thanks for the great memories!

Our room (number 4) was on the very top floor of the buidling. It was really well decorated with lovely vintage motifs and we had superb views to the William Wallace Monument. The room itself was a bit small, but comfortable enough for a couple. The en-suite toilet was also beautifully decorated and very clean.

The wifi signal was quite powerful from the room.

The breakfast was good.

HI to you both.
Thank you for taking time to write a lovely review for The Old Tram house.
I'm so glad you found the vintage style double room to your liking and the views from the room.
We upgraded the Tram house in January this year and have received a lot of positive feed back, each room being slightly different and traditional in character of the house itself.

Great too to know that the high speed Wi-Fi available throughout was fine for you too and that you found all so very clean ,
Thank you again and I hope you will book back again on your next visit to Stirling.
With kindest regards.
Alison.

We can thoroughly recommend this guest house. We stayed for four nights and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay a very pleasant experience. Room was very comfortable with an excellent en suite, especially the shower which performed perfectly, as is not always the case elsewhere! The breakfasts were extensive, with plenty variety. The guest house is within walking distance of the town centre, for those younger and fitter than two senior citizens, but there are bus stops just outside the guest house.

This is a fabulous Bed & Breakfast with parking. Great accommodation which is tastefully decorated and very comfy beds. Breakfast was superb. The choice is huge!! Alison, was truly wonderful and caring and genuinely wanted to make sure we see the best of the area of Stirling. We will definitely return. Highly recommended!!!!!

Room Tip: We had twin room facing the back garden which was very quiet.

We could not have started our 7 week holiday at a better place. Alison, the owner went the extra mile. We had a lovely room, excellent breakfast in luxurious surroundings. Several breakfast options are available and the one is as good as the other! The location is very convenient and the public bus service is very good. We had the perfect stay, thanks Alison!

We came from the U.S. and stayed at the Old Tram House while visiting my daughter who was studying abroad at Stirling University. This was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast and we truly enjoyed our stay. Alison was fabulous and made us feel very welcomed and went the extra mile to be sure that we were satisfied and well served. The accomodations were lovely, very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The price was reasonable as well. If you are going to Stirling, I would highly recommend staying with Alison at the Old Tram House.
