A very nice hotel

As hotels go, I don't tend to expect much. They all seem very similar. This one is a bit nicer than the rest, though. They have recently renovated and it shows. The dining area is well appointed and comfortable. The portion sizes are good for the cost and I have enjoyed it every time I've been... read more

Fantastic place to go for a quiet drink or a big group gathering. The cocktails are amazing and the staff are all really friendly and polite.

Had lunch and the food and wine selection were excellent. We had salt & pepper squid which was cooked to perfection. Lovely outdoor area.

Review of The Grill, which is the fine dining area. Had a very early meal. When we arrived the restaurant was empty, and the service perfect; attentive, relaxed but not intrusive. After that there appeared to be an inverse relationship between service speed and number of customers, so that by 7.30 we were struggling to catch a waiter's eye to... More

Had a lovely steak on a bed of sweet potato mash with green beans, and squash, cooked perfectly! Husband had roast of the day, lamb cooked well. Friendly service, could use a bit more shade on the deck, market umbrellas were few and far between forcing people to sit inside when it was a lovely day! Also heaps of bees?... More

I have been here on a few occasions all for lunch. The food is really nice and do Senior meals at a good price. Depending on what you order some serves can be small but very tasty and well presented. The staff are lovely. We went one day and had to wait as we did not have a booking but... More

The new part of the Stirling Hotel was very busy but we found a spot for three of us on Sunday. There is a bistro area and pizza place plus outdoor dining - it was a wee bit warm for that. We shared the dip, a main course calamari and a greek salad. The latter contained lots of lettuce which... More

The formal restaurant section of the hotel is named 'The Grill". The black and white themed area is tastefully furnished which Danish style furniture and timber tables which give it a modern twist in a heritage setting. The lights are extremely covetable. We opted for the $55 each package consisting of one starter, one mains and a side. The service... More

Regular diners to the pub & pizza side of The Stirling the new deck is a great feature of this pub and definitely adds more capacity. The latest meal we had was all good quality but the let down the wait for food was at least 45 minutes, which doesn't make for a quick meal with kids. The snitzels were... More

Very trendy but has failed to deliver when we've eaten here on numerous occasions. Referring to 'pub' side of establishment, haven't tried the formal restaurant.
