Stayed for one night in March. Hotel excellent and the breakfast is lovely. Close to the town centre; i.e Corn exchange, We will use again when we are in the area. The only drawback is the lack of parking but can be overcome by using the surrounding streets.

Spent 2 nights here with family, Faye and her husband were lovely and welcoming - rooms were clean although a little run down. Nice enough for the weekend. Breakfast was lovely and service was excellent! Very much enjoyed the super-king sized bed!

Stayed over last weekend. The room was very clean, cosy and welcoming and the bed really comfortable. Made to feel very welcome by owner who could not have been more helpful. The 'Full English' was absolutely delicious and sets you up for the day. I cannot recommend The Dolphin highly enough and I look forward to my next stay.

Another weekend stay in this lovely little b&b. Nice and close to the town centre and its shops pubs and amenities, friendly and secure, the rooms have big comfy beds and the "Full English" breakfast makes a great start for the day. We've already booked our next stay.

Friendly guest house run by a biker friendly couple, comfy rooms with all the basics. Very happy to have our bikes secured in a lock up garage. Great traditional cooked breakfast with all the trimmings. Ideally situated for Stamford town center with plenty of pubs and places to eat.

As we have previously stayed at the Dolphin Guest House when we have been at the Burghley Craft Fair we knew we would be well looked after by Fay and Bruce and we were. The breakfasts were good and although there was a party of about 6-8 fisherman there during part of our stay in October this was no problem... More

Stayed here in a party of cyclists cycling Lincoln to London and this was the first place we stayed. They couldn't be more helpful, wonderful hosts. Gorgeous room and massive bed! Delicious breakfast and went to the trouble of making porridge as an extra for our cyclists. Would love to stay again.

I was in a group of 9 people staying in Stamford for the recent Georgian Festival, and it was not easy finding a place with enough twin rooms, near the town centre and at an affordable price - the Dolphin hit the spot exactly. Fay & Bruce were so welcoming and friendly, with Bruce offering good advice on where to... More
