Fay and Bruce are fantastic hosts and are exceptionally helpful and friendly. The breakfast is also extremely good with plenty of choice and is cooked perfectly. There is parking... More

Fay & Bruce our hosts had left delicious home made flapjacks in our room to have with our tea, whilst we unpacked and got ready. Full English Breakfast the next day was delicious,... More

Booked a number of rooms for me and my family. From the initial booking I received great and helpful service from the owners. The location is ideal for Stamford and all the local attractions. A number of off street parking spaces is also a great benefit. The rooms were spotlessley clean, and a number recently refurbished. Breakfast was tasty with... More

We stayed here for one night as we were going to a wedding. Fay and Bruce were great and they let us check in early as the wedding was at 2. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was great . We could park the car out the front which was very handy.... More

An excellent experience from start to finish. Room beautifully clean and comfortable. Fay left us some delicious home made Easter bunny biscuits. Fay and Bruce were extremely accommodating, exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable about surrounding area. Fay immediately changed the duvet on the bed when we noticed it was feather which I am allergic to. Very good value for money, Breakfast... More

Once again a fantastic Stamford visit with accommodation in the Dolphin Guest House. Lovely room with a really comfortable bed, a full english to start the day, and only a couple of minutes from the centre of town (and that's walking). Free parking outside the door, Really cannot ask for more. See you next year.

I booked The Dolphin Guest House after seeing other reviews on Trip Advisor. Fay e-mailed me to say she had a twin room available on Saturday 28th February and that the cost was £65 for the room including full English breakfast, which I thought was very reasonable. I rang Fay to make the booking and she could not have been... More
