Had a night away at the Bull and Swan Stamford! Would really recommend this place. the room was great very spacious, we were upgraded when we arrived which was a nice touch! The food was great, we had a Sunday lunch and the breakfast was delicious. Great location right near to Burghley house and park.
Lovely hotel, nice room, good breakfast. They couldn’t squeeze us in for dinner but to be fair we hadn’t booked. They managed to then get us in at the sister hotel just up the road. If/when we go back to Stamford we’ll definitely look to stay here.
The room was poorly lit with no dressing table to dry your hair or apply make up. The En-Suit arrangement was effectively 2 extra rooms, one containing a toilet & sink which was freezing cold and another shower cubicle & large bath. To access these rooms from your bedroom you had to cross a small landing arrangement with just a privacy curtain to protect you from the next bedroom We did look in our friends room 6 which was 100 times better for the money. We did not get our 10% discount from our insider club membership off the food & drink. The evening menu was rubbish as 20% of it was sold out at lunchtime which was very disappointing as it was only 18:00 on a Friday night. We we’re given the menu to choose from which we did, then to be told at the ordering process that the Fish & Chips had only 1 portion left. 1 Meat Pie left and no mini pasties left on the light bite starters. We then had to start the choosing process over again as 3 of our party of 4 wanted Fish & Chips. Very strange as Friday is typically throughout history been a Fish day. Staff friendly but as shown not effective having to duplicate work. Dinning area atmosphere lovely and the food we finally ordered was of a very good quality…
This is a regular stop if we are traveling north from Kent. Always very welcoming and rooms are comfortable and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very well located. The centre of Stamford is a couple of minutes walk away. Shops are excellent. Overall a very agreeable stay.
All the staff were really friendly and we enjoyed the food - though the coffee at breakfast was not too good. There’s a lovely garden at the back, where they grow vegetables and flowers in raised beds as well as having lots of seating and in the summer, an outdoor cinema and pizza oven. Our room (Ram) was huge and full of character. We stayed on a two night Winter Warmer deal, and thought it was reasonably priced.
