This property is a 9-minute walk from the beach. This elegant hotel has welcomed guests, including royalty, for more than 200 years. The Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote a poem on a hotel window frame, and a plaque commemorating this is on the hotel’s front. In central Stirling, 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, bathtub and shower.
There are shops, bars and cafes on the hotel doorstep, and the magnificent Stirling Castle is just over half a mile away. The William Wallace Monument is less than a 10 minute drive from the Golden Lion.
The Library Bar has light bar meals, and stocks a range of malt whiskeys. The adjacent City Brasserie offers a tasty breakfast and a varied, creative menu, including locally caught seafood.
Stirling’s main bus and train stations are within a 5 minute walk of the property.
