Stirling's Newest 5 Star Hotel opened its doors in July 2014 . A truly Victorian Landmark with magnificent grandeur awaits you . My drive through to Stirling today was a bleak dull experience on a cold November day in the Heart of Scotland but this Magnificent Building put a smile on my face. The entrance to this hotel is through massive Victorian pillars and the reception of the Hotel is refreshingly modern. If you like Black and White then The entire dining area and bar area is for you . Quite surreal leaving a Victorian era and entering a Modern and bright open plan expanse. I was greeted warmly by the Bar and waiting staff ( Also in Black and white ) . The dining area has a window view and looks out over Stirling and hills beyond . There is a choice of 4 or 5 different Afternoon Teas of which the Chocoholic was right up my street. If presentation and elegance was all i was scoring then this is a 10/10 . Beautifully presented on a Black 3 tiered display were dainty little finger sandwiches and a pizza type bite size delight. The middle tier was home to 4 bite size Chocolate pieces - A macaroon , White chocolate Canelloni ,Brownie and a Ganache type crisp . All very nice . The top tier had a Plain scone with a questionable Home made praline and chocolate spread ( Tasted like Nutella) Sweetened Cream and a strawberry . There was a pot of Twinings tea included in the price of £12-95 and i thought this was a good value for money Afternoon Tea . If you want to impress with a Victorian Building ,5 Star rating ,decor and Nice pleasant and mannerly staff then this is a good choice for your money . All the best Hotel Colessio.
