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...

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...

This is a gorgeous old mansion house, taking pride of place at the top of the hill. It is family run and the owners are very friendly, genuine and help to make my stay a real pleasure . My room was massive, with a huge King size bed, and the bathroom was possibly the cleanest I have seen in a...

Best way to describe this is WOW! Besides being an beautiful place, the actual estate was maintained to keep the history. While we only spent one day here, what a wonderful way to take a break. We stayed in the main building which has several rooms and we had the opportunity to see a lot of them since being the...

What a truly wonderful, amazing, fantastic place. My stepson got married at Stirling, and when it was all over, I heard him talking with the owner, TJ, just marveling over how perfectly everything had gone. Many family members stayed at the inn, and we all loved our different Victorian rooms -- each one different, all so spacious and comfortable, including...

A huge thank you to the staff (especially TJ and Peter) of Stirling for giving us the perfect wedding day. We planned our wedding in less than 1 month and we stumbled on their website when we were googling local wedding venues. It looked amazing in the pictures and I called immediately to see if I can look at the...

Stirling Guest Hotel was the best ceremony and reception venue we could have asked for! The building and the grounds are beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff are simply the best! We dealt with TJ throughout our wedding planning process, and he was so helpful. We were planning our wedding from abroad, and TJ really went above and...

Our stay in Stirling Guest Hotel was fantastic, and there are not enough words to describe how wonderful TJ (owner) is. He helped us in every way possible. The hotel is charming, the gardens are beautiful, our spacious room was .... a 2-story high apartment, everything takes you back to a different time in History. And those delicious breakfasts!!

We came to Reading for an Air Show at last minute. Booked this place and we loved it. The house is charming and the architecture is beautiful. All victorian.

We had a wonderful experience at this bed & breakfast. We spent one night in Angela's suite, a beautifully furnished room with a gas fireplace, which made for a cozy evening! The bed was very comfortable and it was very quiet for sleeping. One of the owners we encountered, TJ, was very warm and welcoming, and breakfast was delicious! We...
