“A little disappointed”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at the Courtyard with 6 adults and 1 child (10 yrs old) in August. The rental at the Courtyard is advertised to be the entire garden floor of the home. What is not indicated is that the home in the picture is a duplex which means that the rental is the garden floor of only half of the house. We found that there was not enough room for 6 adults to relax or for all of us to sit comfortably for a meal.

The location is great. Town center was a 10 minute walk and the train station a 15 minute walk. The interior was clean and the bedding was very adequate. I would recommend finding a more spacious rental if you are traveling with more than 4 people.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your stay at The Courtyard. We always appreciate feedback. The property is typical of semi-detached, Victorian properties in the UK, and it does comprise of the entire ground floor of the property. On our website you can see in the aerial photograph of the property there are two paths and two front entrances. Apologies if you struggled with the space around the dining table; we have never had any issues where our guests have found it difficult to accommodate 7 people round the table in the past. You can also see a photograph of the seating arrangement on our website. There are 4 bedrooms in the property which have a kingsize, double and twin beds, and a bunk bed room suitable for children. This accommodation has provided comfortable accommodation to parties larger than 7 on many occasions, but we are sorry if you found this not to be spacious enough for your needs. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed The Courtyard’s central location as there is so much to see and do in close proximity to the property. Hopefully any issues you had didn’t detract from a wonderful family get together in Stirling!

Fab weekend staying at The Courtyard on Gladstone Place for our annual girls weekend away. Apartment lovely and clean and well equipped. Fab outside area with seating area, which is a bonus to have for an apartment so close to the city centre. Railway station, shops, restaurants and attractions all within close walking distance. Would highly recommend and would have no hesitation in returning again

“5 star accommodation - perfect for working visits to the university”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I booked The Courtyard to accommodate my research group while attending a conference at the University of Stirling. The three rooms (2 double and 1 twin), two bathrooms, kitchen, lounge / dining room provide everything needed for a comfortable stay. Furthermore, the quality of the furnishings is 5 star, and I expect, much better than any local hotel / B&B. I would definitely recommend The Courtyard for anyone visiting the university for work purposes. Although a little far from the university, there is good space for parking, and the house is very close to Stirling town centre (and buses).

“Perfect place to stay with family”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed here with our 2 daughters, son in law and our 7 month old granddaughter. Felt like a home away from home. Very well equipped with lots of information provided on the surrounding area. It was very clean, modern, spacious and comfortable with extras like tea and coffee provided. Dishwasher and washer and dryer came in handy. Location was very convenient to all the shops, restaurants, train station and the castle. Rates were reasonable. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in June 2014

Stilring was the first stop on an extended European vacation with our three teenagers. My sister lives in Stirling and we were looking for self catering accomodation walking distance from my sisters and convenient to town. We found the Courtyard through Sirlingselfcatering. It was perfectly located to town (easy 10 minute walk to town) and close to my sisters in a lovely residential area called King Park. We loved having 2 bathrooms, 4 good sized bedrooms (1 has short bunks and is best for young children), a great kitchen, full sized fridge, washing machine and dryer and large lounge and good sized booth style dining area. One bathroom was a bit small and dark and as a result we all favoured the larger one, but it served its purpose. Kirsteen (who lives above with the family) was lovely. Checked to see how we were settling and left us to our own devices. The Courtyard has off street parking, a separate entrance and little courtyard adjacent to the garden of the main house. The kids loved seeing Kirsteens cats sunbathing in our courtyard as they were missing their cat. Did not take photos due to jetlag however online shots are accurate. Free wifi was good. Overall we thought the Courtyard was great value for money and perfect for our needs. It will be top of our list when we return to Stirling. Thanks Kirsteen and apologies for the late review!
