Big room in old Stirling townhouse

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Queen Street, Stirling, FK8 1HN, United Kingdom

A large double room in our beautiful Georgian (1824) townhouse, in the centre of historic Stirling. Stirling Castle is 10 minutes walk away; rail/bus stations are less than 5 minutes walk.

The Space

The room is spacious and well-equipped, with a double bed, sofa, coffee table, books, board games and dvds (and a dvd player). There is wireless internet.

Bread, fruit, cereal, and tea and coffee are provided so you can help yourself to breakfast. There's a fridge, toaster, and kettle in the room.

Guest Access

You are welcome to use the kitchen and the washing-machine. Both the bedroom and kitchen are on the ground floor, near the front door, so you can come and go as you wish. The bathroom is upstairs and shared, with a walk-in shower and a huge bath. Towels are provided.

You are welcome to use the garden. There's a table and chairs so you can eat your breakfast outside in the sunshine if you want.

The Neighborhood

Car parking is available on the street right outside the house, at a cost of £2.70/day or £12/week. Local and long distance buses leave from the bus station nearby. There are half-hourly trains to Glasgow (40 minutes) and Edinburgh (55 minutes), and regular connections to Inverness and London.

Stirling is a great place to stay, and our house is right in the heart of it. You can visit Stirling Castle (recently voted best visitor attraction in Scotland!) and wander round the fascinating old town, with many buildings dating back to the 1500s. The Wallace Monument is just across the valley - in fact you can see it from the kitchen window! The best TripAdvisor restaurant in Stirling (Green Gates Indian) is 20 seconds away, with other pubs and restaurants nearby. Stirling is great for shopping, with lots of independent shops and all the big high street names. The beautiful Loch Lomond & Trossachs national park is a 30 minute drive away.

  • Rosa & Greg are both very friendly and helpful on giving advice places to see and how to get there and places to eat. The bedroom is very large and its a really nice touch to have tea and biscuits in the room.

  • Had a very pleasant stay in Rosa and Greg's place in Stirling. Place is spacious and comfy, with a well stocked continental breakfast in the room as well as kitchen access. Everything super clean and well equipped. Our hosts were very helpful, leaving us maps and info and helping us find places to go hillwalking outside of town (highly recommended). All in all a great experience at a reasonable price. Thanks!!

  • Great stay in a magical setting! Rosa and Greg were super helpful and accommodating, even inviting us back the next day to pick up some headphones we'd stupidly left behind. The room is nice and private, overlooking the street and beautifully furnished. Rosa and Greg are really chill and friendly – the perfect hosts. Recommended!

  • Rosa and Greg's home is very easy walking distance from the train station. The room is perfectly appointed with a fireplace and fridge that they even stocked with yogurt, milk, cookies, and fresh fruit. They were super helpful, friendly, and funny, and gave great dinner recommendations and maps of the area available. They were also aware of some site closures that we had not realized when we arrived which was helpful so we did not waste time going places that were closed. They also graciously helped us with laundry. Great location and fabulous hosts.

  • Not given to using superlatives have to say this was a 'perfect' stay for me. Comfortable in so many ways: spacious bedroom, bathroom/shower room, spacial ambience of hall and stairway etc. Having travelled worldwide over many years and used many different types of accommodation from extreme luxury to much less expensive accommodation, enjoy the experience of feeling 'at home'. Rarely actually 'meet' next door occupants in the luxury places, so much more interesting with lovely people like Rosa and Greg.

  • Friendly welcome and comfortable accommodation with lovely thoughtful touches. Would definitely look to book again if ever staying in the area.

  • We really enjoyed staying with Rosa and Greg! The room was very comfortable, clean, spacious and homey. They were very welcoming hosts and provided great directions and restaurant recommendations. The bed and sofa were very comfortable. They also provided breakfast (fruit, toast, milk, yogurt among many other things) as well as appliances (toaster, electric kettle, fridge) in the room. They also have an amazing DVD collection and assortment of board games. The bathroom was also very spacious and easy to share. There's even a clawfoot tub!

    Communication with Rosa and Greg was excellent. They responded very quickly and were easy to work with. The location of their house couldn't be better; it's a 5 minute walk to Stirling Castle.

    We highly recommend their place for anyone staying in Stirling!
