We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful guest house. The building is beautifully maintained and everyone was very friendly. The breakfast was delicious and we felt as if we were dining with the Bingley family! Only drawback was having to walk through birthday parties to get to our room as the downstairs was used for private parties.

Breathtaking well kept grounds and a beautiful mansion with antique furnishing. Rooms are tastefully and richly decorated. Fireplaces and delicous food. Peter was the perfect host. It was the perfect time of the year for foliage change, weather was cool and crisp. We were there for my son's wedding, it was the perfect setting for the event. Will love to... More

We recently stayed over night for an event that we attended at the Stirling. Check in was very smooth and fast. The event featured great food scallops and bacon, quesadillas and a few other things. The rooms was very nice and clean. Breakfast is a must, don't pass this up! Highly recommend.

I spent much of my childhood in Reading, PA. In fact, my grandparents lived within walking distance of this hotel. I always loved walking through some of these old, grand neighborhoods with the beautiful Victorian homes. I decided that on this most recent visit I would treat myself to a night in one of these houses. It was well worth... More

We were in the area shoping for cigars (at Cigars International in Hamburg). We did not want to stay in the area, but needed a place for the night. I found Stirling Guest hotel here and do not regret believing in the great reviews! The scenery going from Hamburg to Reading is not very attractive, but... As soon as we... More

Do yourself a favor and spend at least one night at the Stirling. The staff; Jeff, Mary and Chef Ron were wonderful. The Mansion is beautiful. It was clean, dust free and not what I expected from a century old Mansion. The floors did not creak, the ceilings did not leak, and the windows did not rattle. I like that... More

We stayed for two nights from 21st May. The main house was absolutely fantastic. We stayed in what would have been the coach house, the main room was large with a mezzanine level which was the bedroom, everything was very nice, but in our opinion there were a few things which could have been better. The bathroom could have an... More

The Stirling Guest Hotel is the antithesis if cookie-cutter rooms and so-so service. We had a great experience over a PSU college graduation weekend. The extended family - grandparents, siblings and more - all stayed at the hotel. On Friday evening, TJ graciously set-up a beautiful area for us to enjoy appetizers and wine (we provided food / wine and... More

We booked 1 night at the Stirling as we were in town for a concert at the Berks Jazz Festival and we are already planning our return visit for next year. We were warmly greeted by TJ and his trusty sidekick Johnny, the Italian Greyhound!! TJ gave us a tour of the property and showed us to our room which... More

We booked one night here because we were in Reading for the Berks Jazz Fest. The building is very well kept up--the woodwork, the hand-painted ceilings, and stained glass, all are beautiful and provide a luxurious setting. Our room on the third floor was comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated. We have stayed at B&B's throughout the U.S. in several countries... More
