My husband and I had our wedding at the Stirling in May, and it was absolutely wonderful. The venue itself is beautiful and elegant. The artwork, furniture, and other details are exquisite. We saw all of the rooms in both the mansion and the carriage house, and they are all beautiful. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and found it... More

We stayed one night on April 18th since we were attending a concert at the Berks Jazz Festival. We had stayed with TJ and his staff last year and loved it so much we came back! From the warm welcome by TJ and Gianni (his adorable Italian Greyhound), our stay was once again perfection. We booked the Sternbergh suite and... More

We toured the whole beautiful structure and fell in love with the place. We felt like we were in another era of elegance. The food presented in a style of English Castles with service and great food . The rooms and grounds are truly amazing. You will fall in love with this place , very romantic.

The Stirling Guest Hotel is a beautifully renovated home with an additional guest building and cottage. The Executive Suite where we stayed had the only king bed. Our objections were the layout and amenities of the suite. The bed was less than three feet from the AC, which was loud and breezy all night. The bathroom had a pedestal sink... More

From the moment we booked the Stirling Guest Hotel to the weekend of the wedding, I couldn't be more thrilled with how perfectly everything went. This is an incredible venue, and if you are looking for an elegant, classy, yet somewhat different venue, I highly recommend the Stirling. Firstly, the entire staff is wonderful. TJ was so laid-back and stress-free,... More

If you're looking for a unique venue to hold an event at this is the place! A historic mansion in the middle of Reading that has charm, beauty, mysteriousness, and homeliness all wrapped up into one package. I was the best man in a wedding here, and my wife and I stayed the weekend in a suite in the Carriage... More

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
