“Fantastic rooms and first class Grill”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

we decided to stay at the Stirling Hotel "5 rooms" with a couple of our best friends for no special occasion than good food with good company. We were so happy with the rooms. we stayed in room 3 with the massive bath. Our friends stayed in room 4 with the steam room - which they also loved. I would definitely HIGHLY recommend room 3 with the balcony over the main street. we enjoyed some platters and wine out there just chatting and watching the busy world go by. With the crisp winter air but sunny day we could easily have been in some pretty European village ! Our dinner was in the Grill. The food was just stunning with beautiful presentation, amazing flavours and excellent choices. Our young fellow waiter was just fantastic. He was funny but not invasive. He was very attentive without being a bloody nuisance ! You can just tell when the staff know how to look after the customer and these guys were 10 out of 10. We went to Bistro later for some cocktails and was looked after by the Manager. What a friendly and professional fellow. Nothing was too much trouble ! If you are looking for 5 star service all the way don't go past the Stirling Hotel for both food and accommodation. Can't recommend it more highly. we will definitely be back :-)

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3. Very modern and super clean. With double glazing it's so quiet you'll...

Stayed here for a night with friends 25th August 2013. Loved it..!!!
We were so taken back with excellent quality of these renovated very large rooms. We had room 4 which has its own steam room, which was awesome. We will Definitely would book this room again. Our friends had room 3 which they totally adored.
Both of our rooms also has a large balcony to sit out on and take in the views of Stirling, sipping on your favourite Mclaren Vale Shiraz.!!
The 4 of us also dined in "The Grill" restaurant for lunch. The food, wine and service we found outstanding. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an Adelaide Hills food experience. We capped off our stay there with a beautiful breakfast in the bistro where the staff are friendly and helpful.
Do yourself a favour..make sure this one is on your list.!!!

I really enjoy coming here, especially in the Autumn, where Stirling is all red, orange and yellow. There is a fire place running along a bench, where I usually sit, and order antipasto items from the bar, including the chips, duck spring rolls and dim sims. I always find the portions very satisfying; plus, they almost always have Bulmers cider on tap! I do recommend visiting to anyone in Adelaide, as its the most convenient location in the Hills to access from the city. The building's charm and stonework is beautiful too.

Everyone makes mistakes but its how its handled. Before I ordered a meal, i enquired if I could have a different sauce which I was told was fine. On receiving the meal, it did have the different sauce I had asked for but did not have the other bits that this meal was supposed to have. When I went to talk to the guy at the bar whom I had ordered it from, he said...oh I thought that's what you meant which I didn't really buy because we had discussed the other bits on the meal. Like I said earlier...everyone makes mistakes but no apology, no asking if I would like something else, no offer of a refund and no checking on the meal that was actually delivered. As I work in hospitality, I will not be recommending this hotel anymore.

The centre of Stirling in the Adelaide Hills is an exquisite location anytime of the year and to take it all in, there cannot be a better accomodation available. The plush, tasteful decor that adorns the generous sized upstairs rooms of this century plus year old hotel are but one of the delights of your stay.
Meanwhile, downstairs formal dining awaits in the 'Old Hotel', or you can walk thru to a more upbeat, open plan bistro for groovy dining, drinking, inside or out. The menus at both are exemplary. When your night is done, you can retire upstairs to your room which is pleasantly soundproofed from the good times going on below, as well as well serviced by a common kitchen which has all a kitchen should have, so you can do everything from cook, make coffee in the nespresso machine, wash and dry your clothes, make use of the fridge, freezer, even take a bottle of your favourite upstairs and wine or champagne glasses await!
Next morning, take your breakfast voucher downstairs to the bistro and pick your preference from the menu before heading out to explore the magnificent Adelaide Hills.
Any queries are promptly dealt with by the friendly, enthusiastic staff which only leaves you to relax and enjoy the magnificent Stirling Hotel and its equally impressive surrounds. Highly recommended.

Just visited for a drink and some food, but really impressed. Beautiful building dating from the late 1800's but modern renovations have been done sensitively to enhance the appearance. Staff are friendly and even though it was really busy, the service was pretty good. Good selection of bar snacks and main menu had a good range. Different rooms provide a range of options, with live entertainment (today it was a guy playing the guitar and singing), a pool table and big screen TVs and other quieter areas more conducive for chatting. The setting, with outdoor seating in the centre of Stirling is quite picturesque and despite proximity to traffic, didn't seem noisy and with outdoor heaters, was fine for a chilly mid winter day. It would probably be a really good option in summer, with shade from the veranda, trees and umbrellas. Highly recommended for a relaxing drink or leisurely meal.
