Stirling Manor Boutique Guest House & Conference Facility
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

When I pay 5 star prices for a 5 star place I expect 5 star quality. Not sure which criteria was considered for the rating but a review should be considered.

The accommodation was good and the general feel of the establishment was great, however the parking is an issue especially when the owners have guests over and when you get back from eating out (because they don't do dinner) and there is no place to park.
The wifi in the room was hardly worth the effort and the plumbing was noisy.

When we enquired about an establishment for dinner we were told we could walk to a restaurant close by. This was not only a far distance to walk it was also very unsafe. Irresponsible by the owner.

Our stay was enjoyable but not fantastic. if the owners genuinely took an interest in all their guests, irrespective of class or status, I expect they would actually deserve the 5 stars.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

My husband surprised me with a romantic weekend away at Sterling Manor to celebrate my birthday (first weekend in May).

Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly staff member with a golf cart to collect our luggage (and us), which we thought was a very nice gesture (the road from the parking bays to the entrance is quite steep and uneven).

Upon check-in we were warmly greeted by Nadia and immediately felt welcome. We received a welcome drink and were shown to our suite. We stayed in suite 6 (corner suite).

Our suite was very spacious, sparkling clean, elegant and luxurious furnished and decorated. The bed was very comfortable, ensuring a good night's rest.

The en-suite bathroom was huge with a corner bath, heavenly double shower as well as twin hand basins. As expected luxurious toiletries were provided as well as velvety gowns and slippers.

Coffee and tea facilities as well as rusks and biscuits were available. We had a mini fridge in the room. Complimentary bottled water was replaced on a daily basis.
The view from our balcony was breathtaking!

We had dinner on Friday night in the dining/breakfast room which Nadia had prepared especially for us and the 3 course dinner was excellent with a very romantic ambience.

We also found the breakfast menu with a wide variety of hot choices a welcome change from the ordinary buffet breakfast. The cold buffet was delicious! Breakfast was of the highest quality and freshly prepared. The Eggs Benedict must be the best I ever had!

We had dinner on Saturday at Silver Orange Bistro which I can highly recommend (see my review).

Each and every aspect of this guesthouse is out of this world! The ambience, the spectacular décor, attention to every little detail, the friendliness of all the staff members and the magnificent views!

Stirling Manor is truly in every aspect a five star gem! Throughout our stay we were treated like royalty!

We would like to thank Nadia and her team from the bottom of our hearts for contributing to a very memorable birthday!
We will be back!

Room Tip: Suite 6 is very spacious!

We enjoyed our short weekend stay in these facilities. View of the Hartbeesport dam makes it a worth stay and plenty of activities and locations near the hotel for adventure and sightseeing. Interior decor and cleanliness and friendly staff make it a good family or couple's choice~

Our experience with Stirling Manor made us very picky through-out our whole trip. From the night we arrived we received 5-Star treatment. The team was always ready to help and I mean ready.
Thank you to Nadia & her team you guys were wonderful!!! see you soon!

I was traveling alone with work & had a weekend off. I could not have stayed in a more welcoming, warm & amazing place. Nadia was so helpful and was always willing to support in any way - her blueberry muffins are just fantastic. as were the egyptian cotton sheets. I was female & traveling alone - to an area I did not know - and I felt a little vulnerable however Nadia and the rest of the staff helped to allay all my fears. The breakfasts were fantastic - lots of choice. The photos on the website were very accurate - which Im sure you will concur doesn't always happen - fantastic views; decor & hospitality. Thankyou so much for looking after me.
