Fantastiskt ställe!

  • 5 of 5

Det fanns gott om rum, ett välutrustat kök, bra att det fanns en stor tv (att se på fotbolls-VM på) och en stor härlig trädgård. Bonus är biljardbordet högst upp i huset även om där var varmt när vi var där så var det ändå kul att spela på kvällarna. Huset ligger i ett väldigt lugnt område och vi kunde ha fönstret öppet på kvällen utan att några ljud störde oss. Det enda som var en litet minus var att WiFi inte alltid fungerade så bra, men då fick barnen göra annat istället ;)

We loved our stay at Castleview

  • 4 of 5

Castleview was the first home I saw when looking for a home in Stirling - close to the town and the castle - which could accommodate our family of 14. It was perfect for us with 8 adults, 2 teenagers and 4 children ages 8 and 9. Everyone had a comfortable bed to sleep in with either ensuite facilities, or in the case of one family, sharing a bathroom which was fine. The house is so spacious inside, Very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The children loved having the back yard to play in and also the large grassy area in front of the house where they played football most days. The agency and the owner were very helpful answering my questions about the house, easy to deal with and very accommodating.

We could easily walk to the town centre and up to the Castle and other places of sightseeing interest. We would absolutely return for another stay at Castleview and would highly recommend to anyone else with a group about our size.

Perfect large home for our party of 9!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 couples and 3 singles had a perfectly marvelous stay at Castleview. The house was clean, cozy and very well appointed. The location is ideal for walking into the old town, and the neighborhood is magnificent. There is plenty of room for everyone to convene together, or to have their own space if they wish. The kitchen is a cook's dream!

The weather was unusually warm and dry during our visit, so we thoroughly enjoyed the lovely back garden to its fullest. We also made good use of the third floor snooker room in the evenings after dinner. We highly recommend Castleview!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very helpful in terms of early entry. The house is in a fantastic location and enabled our family to easily tour Stirling, Edinburgh and attend a family weddding in Blantyre. The location of Kings Park in Stirling is superb and walking distance to the town centre.

The house itself is extremely well appointed with fantastic rooms and great views of the Castle. Easy walking distance to the Golf course which we played, well worth it if you wish to play.

Kirsteen was extremely helpful during the booking process and we would not hesitate to use this company again.

All in, a great experience
