Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I had a wonderful time at the Stirling Hotel yesterday. The food was delicious and the environment was cozy and relaxing. The waitress (Christine) was very polite and nice, she made sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking...for a great place to enjoy a meal.

Expect ringing ears after leaving this place. The Bistro is the worst but the restuarant is no longer a pleasant place to eat as you have to compete with doof doof. We will not be going back again. Too loud. I wonder if the owners...ever ever get asked to turn the music UP???? NO!!! How many times do people ask for it to be turned down? Can they realise that the more loudness they broadcast does not equate to the more fun people are having. NOT.More

The steak is one of the toughest we’ve ever had (Sirloin) and the steak knife supplied couldn’t cut through it. My husband had to pick it up in his hand to eat it. Very disappointing.

Dropped in to pick up a take away on the way home and placed my order. Was told my timing was ‘great’ as a large order was about to go in from a group eating in. After 45 minutes I went to see where my...single takeaway pizza was, ‘sorry’ we had a large order. Staff confirmed they took the later order and served them first, ‘sorry’ is apparently all you get for that. Meanwhile, I’m still sitting here at 9:40pm not having made my way home from work yet.More

Truly awful food. Chicken madras curry full of half raw potato and about 50gms chicken. Flavourless and unseasoned. Basically this was a plate of rice potato and peas. Lamb shoulder was tiny and insufficient to feed a child let alone a man. Schnitzel was average,...but not worth the money by a long shot. The place is so noisy it's uncomfortable. Never again.More

Great place to sink a few beers on a sunny afternoon. Nice menu and it tastes just as good as it looks which is nice! Prices very reasonable considering that it's a pretty high-end joint. Only complaint is the acoustic guitar at 100db while we...are trying to have a chat. Make it stop.More

Burnt top, the burnt outer ring of the bottom, and the pastry is...💯 overcooked in general, no pie pastry should be this colour, especially the ratio of the first bite and inside is dry as my dead great grandma.. The bottom has then started to crumble. it’s braised beef cheek, it’s supposed to have a tender, melting texture. It should be moist and have a rich, juicy flavour that is balanced with sauce. Overall, for $10.50. This is not it…More

We took our boys to this hotel for a lunch whilst on Christmas Holidays & we were very disappointed & angered! My wife had ordered the gnocchi which was on the menu & we weren’t advised otherwise & she ended up being served linguine, my...wife said she didn’t order this & we were told they weren’t making gnocchi today?! They thought it was perfectly ok to serve us a meal we didn’t even order!!! Chips were stale & over cooked & the service was terrible! For such a beautiful part of Adelaide, this experience was well below par. If I’m paying descent money for a meal, I expect it to be edible! We requested & received our money back for a meal that was cold, bland & disgusting, we will not be returning to eat at this establishment! The star rating I suggest would be for the Hotel itself, not the food it serves! Do not be deceived by that! Well over priced for poor quality food & service!👎🏻More
