Castlecroft has all the reasons for why you'd pick a B&B over a hotel. Very friendly and helpful personal service, very clean, great bed and TV choices in the room, great breakfast cooked to order, and a great location about 1/3 of the way up the hill under the great Stirling Castle. Laura, the owner, is happy to provide all...

Stayed one night with Laura in Castlecroft, she is the ultimate host. Warmly welcomed. The room was nice and perfectly cleaned, and outside a little garden, my son could explore. Next morning, we were made lovely breakfast. We will be back! I can highly recommend this B&B, its just a little walk away from the castle and the city center.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 nights we stayed at the Castlecroft because the owner (Laura) has created the perfect B&B. Stirling Castle overlooks the Castlecroft and Laura showed us the nearby steps which led to a beautiful, gently-sloped walkway which took us directly to the castle. Laura prepares (to your order) a full breakfast (eggs, bacon, ham,...

We HIGHLY recommend this B&B! It is perfectly situated (walk to the castle & even city center!); provides such lovely & cozy guest accommodations & overall gives exceptional service. The host Laura made us feel like we were her only guests, suggested attractions & gave background history on each & offered daily to make dinner reservations for us. She made...

I stayed at this lovely guest house for one night on a business trip. My room was clean and quiet with great WIFI reception. A 10 minute walk in to town where there are some good places to eat. The host, Laura was really helpful. HIGHLY recommended.

Castlecroft sits in the shadow of Stirling Castle and has in its time catered for 100 hundreds of visitors to Stirling, had it been there in the 16th century then James V would have graced its doors. The house is beautiful, its walls adorned with art from local artists. The rooms are immaculate, beds are soft and comfortable. Laura cooks...

This is the sort of place that makes you wish you could rate higher than 5 stars. From the moment we stepped in the door, a kind of peace settled over us and we knew we had found the perfect bed and breakfast. Laura was so kind and went out of her way to make us welcome. The room was...

Stayed here for three nights to attend a show, and could see within a few minutes why they are no 1 in Stirling. Very easy to find, large car park and directly underneath Stirling castle and stunning views all around. A very warm welcome and the offer of tea & biscuits, a chat about local places to eat and a...

Wonderful hostess, very welcoming and helpful when it came to getting into, and around town. The house is in a very unique location next to a large field full of highland cows and right underneath the castle. The breakfast was very good. This was definitely one of our more memorable stops.

(Stayed October 18th to 24th........7 nights…… but not long enough) Have you ever entered a B&B or Guest House and get the overwhelming feeling of "a sense of belonging", well that is what happened when my Sister and I arrived at Castlecroft and we were greeted by Laura with a genuine warm and welcoming smile. After we were guided through...

“Listed as "Ballengeich Rd". GPS didn't find B&B. I found that if I input the address 5 Ballengeich Rd, it took me right to the B&B.”

“I doubt if there are any bad rooms- there certainly is no shortage of amazing views!”
  • Fluffy towels and comfy mattress
  • All rooms are en-suite
  • A lovely place to sit and enjoy the sun. The view, which you can't see here, is also stunning.
