We stayed here in July after attending a wedding nearby. The room was very large and spacious, with a big bathroom and comfy bed. The staff were very friendly and the pub/bar itself was lovely. We didn't have time to utilise their beer garden but it looked beautiful with great views. We'll definitely be booking this place again when we... More

Perfect setting,very friendly, immaculately clean, what more could you want? We chose the Willoughby purely because of location as we were visiting friends in the area. Would highly recommend and will without a doubt be staying there again in the future.

This country inn (as it is described in the Willoughby Arms' own literature) is a gem, both historically and as a place to relax and unwind. It is actually in Little Bytham, just outside Stamford - a pleasant drive of about 8 / 10 minutes from the town. We dined in the restaurant both evenings - the choice was good,... More

We stayed here for 2 night a while back and had a fantastic time. The locals were friendly during the evening and the atmosphere was very, very friendly. The beers on offer were varied and very nice. The rooms are located out the back, so it was very quiet and peaceful when it needed to be.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying at this quintessential village pub on two other occasions. We have always taken the opportunity of staying in one of their superior rooms, there being four of these. They are the Mallard, Burghley, Rutland and Bytham. On this occasion we stayed in the Burghley. The rooms are virtually brand new... More

We visited with friends during Easter weekend and found it an easy, spotlessly clean and relaxing venue. We stayed in the Courtyard rooms and found they had all we needed for a short 3 night break. The breakfast area was in need of refurbishment and this was acknowledged by our host who advised that this was planned and would happen... More

We recently stayed at the Willoughby Arms for one night to break a long journey and were allocated the Burghley courtyard room which was spotlessly clean. The pub is in a quiet location with lovely views to the rear. All the staff we met were friendly and keen to please and the food we had in the evening was good.... More

I stayed one night on a business trip in the Mallard courtyard room. Very clean but mind the step down to the bathroom. Well equipped room - small tv and really would benefit from adding a chair. Not much fun having to sit on the bed all evening. Hard floors are a great feature but can be noisy from those... More

This venue is clearly on the up. The rooms in the former outbuildings have been refurbished and we were told the ones in the main building are due to be redone soon. We would have been disappointed with the quality if we had stayed in the latter as these look tired. The new rooms however are bright, clean and modern... More
