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

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

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.
