A couple of months after replacement of both knees, I felt it unwise to make the journey from Kent to Cumbria in one hop. I consequently searched for a dog-friendly hotel en route. We were fortunate that I came across the Garden House Hotel in Stamford. It’s a gem. We were greeted very warmly on our arrival and Bertie (our... More

Stayed at this hotel for a wedding in town, room rates were cheap and included a delicious breakfast in the morning with excellent service and a wide range of breakfast choices. Their garden is also beautiful....Our room faced onto it and it meant that our sleep was very peaceful and quiet. Their rooms are slightly outdated and the shower was... More

If this hotel was as good as the food in terms of its upkeep and rooms etc. then I'd be giving it 5 stars. But it isn't at that's a shame, because the food really is outstanding (best hotel dinner I've had in years) and much of what lets the hotel down a bit could be easily rectified with some... More

We have just returned from a three day stay at this hotel and were very disappointed. The staff were approachable, friendly and very helpful when called upon and the situation was first- class. The room however was very shoddy, from the very worn carpet to the state of the decorations and the bath with no enamel. We had dinner out... More

We have just returned from a lovely weekend in Stamford, having stayed at the Garden House Hotel. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the breakfast was lovely and the setting is superb. The only disappointment was the rooms, which are in need of updating, with the bed being uncomfortable, and the bathroom dated.

I rated this hotel as very good mainly because of the breakfast. All of us ordered different breakfast and all cooked very well. I especially enjoyed my egg benedict which served with parma ham instead of normal ham! My husband ordered smoked salmon which was in generous portion. We booked the rooms through booking.com. When we check-in, reception said they... More

Went for group meeting and welcome from hotel management was sadly lacking, the bar was over hot and crowded. Sadly the worst point was the food, sandwiches curling at the edges, undercooked kebabs, burnt nuts and tasteless olives. The rooms and decor are shabby and tired. Hotel is overdue for a makeover!

My friends got married here at the weekend and the entire day was perfect! The venue is a stunning old building, with beautiful gardens and brilliant attentive staff - thanks to Zena and her team. The meal was fantastic and the venue has a wonderful flow from the reception room, bar, conservatory, deck and gardens, and I would highly recommend... More

Son's wedding here yesterday, just perfect. Very well organised, superb food, beautiful garden, helpful friendly efficient staff, very reasonable prices. We were so glad this was chosen as the wedding venue, it was perfect. A huge thank you to Zena and the staff. If you are planning a wedding in Stamford it can't be better than this.
