My partner and I booked a stay at this hotel for a short shopping trip. The hotels public areas are lovely, as were the reception and bar staff. However, we were very disappointed with our room. As we both work in the hotel industry, I checked out drawers etc in the room to see that everything was as it should be. I was unimpressed to discover a soiled towel in a drawer in our bathroom, we only had one milk portion in our tea tray to have with a cup of tea or coffee, our shower plug hole was blocked and the shower in general looked less than clean. To top it all, a member of housekeeping staff barged into our room at 9.00am without knocking, whilst I was in the shower and my partner undressed. We are not in the habit of complaining as we know what it is like working in the hotel industry. However, I feel that this is down to a pure lack of attention to detail and incompetence on the part of the head housekeeper, or whoever it is that is supposed to check the rooms are completed properly before they are re-let. Sadly, this seems to be the 'norm' in large group hotels. They are only interested in bringing in the money than meeting customers expectations. We only stayed here because the lovely guest house we normally stay in was fully booked. In future, I will book there well in advance.

Top Local Tips for Stirling

Open Top bus Take the open top bus for a short but very interesting trip round the town. You will hear about the history and it will then allow you to determine which historic attractions to revisit on foot.

museum Do visit Stirling Castle - much more 'homely' than Edinburgh Castle, with wonderful panoramic views. If you walk up from the hotel car park, you save the cost of parking outside the Castle. And take time for the Regimental Museum of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (5th Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Scotland). It's one of the very best Army museums, but it isn't all 'old' stuff - it takes you right up to the modern campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. Entry is free (you pay Historic Scotland to enter the Castle) but it relies on voluntary donations and is worth a contribution when you leave.

Go walk about If your like walking goto the Castle All up hill
