Chintzy and jaded in appearance but clean and good location. We did not eat in the restaurant so cannot comment but the rooms were small and we were cold. I agree with a previous reviewer who said that for £70 a night I would expect a cooked breakfast. On this occasion to make our own toast in the room, suited... More

Have just had a Sunday lunch family reunion for ten people. We were made very welcome, the meal was excellent, nicely cooked, lots of fresh vegetables and well served. After lunch we were given the opportunity for more time together in the bar and the exchange of Christmas presents. Would certainly recommend

Stayed overnight at Candlesticks for a friend's Birthday Dinner - all I can say is WOW! Great location and very near to the station. The room was on the small side, but I would expect that for £50 a night!! And with so much to do and see in Stamford, I only SLEPT in my bedroom. Friends and I celebrated... More

Nice and comfy bed how ever we paid £75 for one night stay which I thought could of had a cooked breakfast but instead the choice was cereal and toast which you did in your room which I felt was not nice . We only saw the owner on arrival and that was it would of been nice to them... More

This place was difficult to find, narrow streets and poor parking. We had booked a twin room months ago for two nights, they gave us a double which we did not want so complained. We had two separate rooms for one night which cost us more, one of which was so small, it felt like a prison cell. Continental breakfast... More

Have been going for a number of years now. Food is aways good quality and presented well. Service is also good. Dining cellar can be very cold in winter and hence room temperature is better for white and rose rather than red.

It's probably more than the management can take, but our second visit to Candlesticks in 2013 was, yet again, well worthwhile. The welcome was as warm as ever, the accommodation extremely comfortable, the food more than excellent! Visitors to Stamford should always consider Candlesticks as a comfortable, convenient base for checking out the town itself and with Burghley Park just... More

This is a very old property and consequently has a number of small rooms, many, if not all, are only accessible by stairs, some of which are quite steep. The room we had was comfortable enough with an en suite and adequate hanging and drawer space. There are a variety of items to make up your own continental breakfast in... More

We stayed at the Candlesticks Inn for 4 nights and, although we did find that our room was rather small, our stay was pleasant enough and it was value for money. We were exhibitors at the Rutland Bird Fair and had to leave quite early every morning so it was very useful that we were expected to make our own... More
