            It was convient for the shops, and sight seeing places.Public transport close to hand, good night life.

            The only thing that I didnt like was the parking more pot holes than the golf course.

            Staff at the restaurant very friendly.Free car park, close to the city centre

            Didn't like the lift (could do with some updating).The receptionist didn't seem very happy when we arrived, Very loud on Saturday during the wedding we could hear everything in our room..

            location

            Didnt like the room we had,have stayed there few times before and the rooms were fine,but this time there was a musty damp smell in the room,and it was too small. Also the breakfast i got was not very nice the sausage was off, put us off eating in the hotel.We are not ones for complaining so we did not bring this to anyones attention,however we are not sure if we will stay there again.

            Beautiful little walkable city location. Walking distance from a wonderful castle. Many, many restaurants and shops just outside the doors. Gourmet quality food. Friendly, helpful staff available 24 hours a day. Central location to many sights in Scotland. Minutes from the train station.

            The room was quite small. Each night, I stayed 4 nights in all, the late partying noises from the street were loud and endless into the wee hours.

            Friendly helpful reception staff.

            Very average breakfast. Buffet not replenished unless you ask and tables not cleared.

            Superb location. Good shower in room.

            We booked an executive twin room, can't really say there was anything executive about it. Breakfast was ok, have had better for cheaper though.

          • Single
            7.8

            Central location. Excellent receptionist (small, dark, spoke with an non-British accent).

            Car park. Would be nice to have one. Not a chance of getting the car in and out.

            Location of hotel, very central, very clean, friendly staff.although upgrading at reception area no inconvenience was caused.

            Brealfast was very ordinary and restaurant staff were disinterested.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Thought the food was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was an ideal location in the middle of the city centre for all the shops and the castle.

            10.0

            I like the atmosphere in general. All the stuff was very gentle and friendly. The bar and dining room were cosy. We stayed only one night with our three years old son and we would come back in the future end recommend it to our friends. Many thanks Jarka Cox

            There was nothing we did not like.

            The Golden Lion is ideally located in the centre of Stirling for local shopping and visiting the nearby attractions. Very close to the Train and Bus Staions. I used the Hotel for business purposes but would stay here for pleasure / holiday. The menu is quite selective but the food is of high quality with service to match. Cleanliness of Hotel is not questionable with rooms offering good facilities. Secure car parking.

            I have only one thing to mention here and that is the rooms on the 3rd floor are quite small in comparison to other rooms within the hotel. The lift to this floor is somewhat antiquated and again not that big which could cause a problem is there is heavy luggage to be taken to the room.

            Went for my mothers 80th birthday, Hotel a little difficult to find due to one-way system (maybe better details on directions). Very nice hotel and clean - did the job!!!.

            Breakfast was a little disappointing - food a little overcooked even though we were there at start of Breakfast (but good choice though). Evening meal very good.
