The Golden Lion Hotel has welcomed guests, including royalty, for more than 200 years. The Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote a poem on a hotel window frame, a plaque commemorating this is located on the hotel’s front. Located in Stirling city center, it has free parking, a traditional bar and a restaurant serving Scottish beef and lamb.

The family-owned Golden Lion offers modern rooms, each with a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, tea and coffee and ironing facilities. Each bathroom has a hairdryer, bath and shower.

There are shops, bars and cafes on the hotel doorstep, and the magnificent Stirling Castle is just 0.6 miles away. The William Wallace Monument is less than 10-minutes drive from the Golden Lion.

The Cronies Bar has light bar meals, and stocks a range of malt whiskeys. The adjacent Cronies Restaurant, serving afternoon teas daily, also offers a tasty breakfast and a varied, creative menu, including locally caught seafood.

Stirling’s main bus and rail stations are within 5 minutes’ walking distance.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.3 for a two-person trip.
