Unacceptable
Reviewed September 2013 by trivago traveler
I spent the weekend with my boyfriend in Edinburgh and with choose to stay in this hotel but we didn't really had a great experience there. I expected to pay for the car park at our arrival but I didn't know it was going to be that expensive! £20 a night! At the check in, the hostess was not smiling and tried to sell us the breakfast each morning for £17.50 when the breakfast was include in the deal. We paid all most £300 for a double room but ...
so-so

location is good, but hotel needs a re-furb in places, staff not so attentive and bad lighting in room.

  • National Wallace Monument

    National Wallace Monument

    The National Wallace Monument on Abbey Craig outside Stirling commemorates the life of Sir William Wallace, a 13th-century Scottish warrior who battled the forces of King Edward I of England in the cause of Scottish independence. The monument, completed in 1869, is a 220-ft Victorian Gothic tower designed by John Thomas Rochead. Visitors climb 246 interior steps to view Stirling, the site of the Battle of Stirling Bridge, and Stirling Castle—not to mention the River Forth and the surrounding countryside—from the tower’s crown. Along the way, they can pause to explore galleries depicting Wallace’s impact on Scottish history, to gaze at his sword, and to wander the Hall of Heroes with its busts of famous Scotsmen. Aside from the monument’s remarkable open crown, its most striking element is a 15-ft bronze statue of Wallace placed on a corbel about 30 ft above ground level. The caretaker’s house (attached to the monument) is now a tearoom. There is also a small on-premises gift shop. A separate reception center is located at the base of Abbey Craig, where visitors can purchase tickets and catch the shuttle leading up to the monument.
