Hotel's Favorite
And thus we stay in a LOT of hotels and eat a lot in hotel restaurants. We have stayed here before (and it has always been great) but the restaurant in the Orangery takes this place up to the next level. This hotel is now as good as any that you will find anywhere. Everything here is of the highest quality: Welcome, public areas, rooms, beds, restaurant, food, service and drinks. And the breakfast- don’t forget the breakfast!! ( don’t miss the porridge with cream, brown sugar and a wee dram) This is an superb place - come here, relax, eat, drink and enjoy Victoria Square is, quite simply, excellent.

We have just returned from Victoria Square and we found all aspects of our stay to be of the highest standard. The staff were superb and the service they provided was excellent. Breakfast was freshly prepared each day and again of a very high quality, with no waiting time at all, as it was with the evening dinner we had with friends. We particularly enjoyed the time spent in the guest lounge, before and after dinner, catching up with our family news. The decor of the room was in keeping with the period of the house and the room was spotless, with the bathroom having very recently been refurbished. For a visit to Stirling the location is very good - a very short stroll to the Smith Gallery, Kings Park and for the golfers, Kings Park Golf Course. A slightly longer stroll takes you into the centre and the historic areas of the town, in the evening the Square is very quiet. All Covid protocols were very clearly in place and being followed precisely. We look forward to another stay in VS on our next trip to Stirling.
