Recent reviews, edited for length, say:
“It was just the perfect location and facility for my three days in Stirling. This is a small boutique style hotel well appointed, in a great location and with excellent car parking. The brasserie food is very good and the bar is good too. In this review I want to emphasise the quality of the young people employed at the hotel. They are articulate, helpful, intelligent and efficient at their work. Congratulations to the management team for employing and training such excellent young people all of whom I wish all the best in their careers.”
“The rooms are very spacious and well-appointed with homemade shortbread and an assortment of teas and coffee. There is a bar and a restaurant in the lobby which were both very good. Breakfast is included and it was scrumptious and pretty much made to order. The staff is extremely kind and helpful; James at the front desk is lovely and I can’t say enough about Fran who waitresses. I watched her each day as tourists/guests asked her what they should do and see, where they should go and she answered so patiently each time as if it was the first time she had been asked this question! Stuart who cleaned the rooms was also a pleasant chap as was the bartender. I highly recommend Cooks.”
