Situation for the centre of Stamford is excellent. However don't forget to pack your thermals - we went in January and the room was very cold, and the heating didn't appear to be on for long. We were in room 8, which is right at the top of the hotel, very small room, with a bathroom that is out of... More

Had a terrific time staying at the Candlesticks in Stamford, England. Proprietor Nelio has a talent for making one feel like you are staying at the house of an old friend, even when there for the first time. With a lovely in-room continental breakfast set-up, and a excellent in-house restaurant for dinner, the notion of England not having great food... More

Me and my partner have visited here many a time and were never disappointed. Naturally, when friends visited, we thought it would be nice to take them there too. When we rang to book a table we asked for a table downstairs, when we arrived the woman behind the bar told us to sit upstairs but we wanted to sit... More

We stayed here for four nights and found the hotel to be beautifully quaint on the outside and centrally situated to what we needed to do in beautiful Stamford. We did, however, find the rooms to be very small (we were in no 6) and dated. The shower is not the best, either as only an average trickle if water... More

My sister and I visited Stamford for a very short stay. Before arriving, we had researched possible places to eat and this was high on our list. A sharp shower of rain made our mind up for us, and I feel very fortunate to have been guided here by the weather. Our visit was excellent from start to finish.Professional, efficient... More

This hotel is desperately in need of a full renovation. Rooms are tiny and cluttered with giant, outdated and frankly, dirty furniture (the mirror on the dressing table clearly given a cursory wipe with a dirty rag making it even harder to see into). The bathrooms need a full refit - a working shower would have been handy. The breakfast... More

We visit the candlesticks every couple of months the service and the food never disappoints, where else would you a three corse meal served by silver service trained staff at such a good price, here's to another 15 years!

I suggested this hotel to my mother-in-law and her friend for a recent visit to my home town of Stamford. They requested a twin room and stayed for three nights. It was only upon badgering them to tell me (I guess they were loathe to as I'd suggested the hotel) that I found out the room was up a winding... More

Our first visit to Candlesticks was in 2009 and we have cheerfully returned at least once - sometimes twice - a year since. This April's visit showed no falling in the high standards set at this small Hotel with very high standards. The service was, as usual, excellent and the food in its candlelit Restaurant, again as usual, exemplary. The... More
