We held our wedding at The William Cecil in June. After plenty of venue visiting and researching we came across a true gem in The William Cecil. We were looking for somewhere that could host our very personal, intimate and relaxed wedding. Full of ideas we made an appointment with Vicki and after looking around and going through how our...

I am not easily pleased when it comes to hotels but I have to say that I have absolutely no complaints about the William Cecil. I had a very spacious comfortable room on the ground floor at the back with of course an en suite bathroom with bath and shower but, to my surprise, an en suite garden as well!... More

I only stayed one night but had a really great stay. The hotel is in walking distance of both Stamford and Burghley House (a lovely walk through the grounds). My room was commodious and comfortable and there were quirky and interesting pictures and objects all around. The service was excellent with lots of choice for breakfast. I hope to return... More

My hubby and I spent 2 nights at the William Cecil celebrating our anniversary and had a really fantastic time. The staff couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful - they even went as far as giving us a courtesy call prior to our late arrival to offer cold plates of food to be sent to our room in case...

The William Cecil is ideally situated within walking distance of Stamford town centre. The delightful staff certainly lived up to the aims of the Group to which the hotel belongs to provide quality customer service. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We stayed for just two nights and were sorry our stay was so short. The hotel building is... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the William Cecil. Everything was perfect from the booking procedure, the welcome when we arrived and the upgraded room which we paid for was really comfortable, spacious and well maintained. We also had the benefit of French windows which opened onto a lovely garden which was like our own private space. The hotel was... More

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents because they aren't online but really wanted me to put something on here about their stay - they recently enjoyed a night's bnb at the wonderful William Cecil with their labrador, Freddie. All three had a fantastic time and Freddie was warmly welcomed by all the staff he met and... More

We stayed one night in this beautiful hotel. Receptionist very friendly when we arrived and showed us to our room. She offered several times to help with our luggage. The hotel is immaculately presented. Our room, (number 3) on the ground floor was beautiful, with lots of little extra touches. The ensuite was large, with a roll top bath. Dinner... More

We stayed three nights, arriving at midnight on the first night. Staff were very helpful, but didn't help with bags to our room, which was at the front facing the road. A little bit noisy but nothing I could consider intrusive. Breakfasts were i n the conservatory, or outside on the patio. Great for the diet conscious, but for those... More

Thank you for your review and your kind comments about the team. I'm sorry you were a little disappointed with the size of your eggs benedict. Chef and I have had a chat about this and will certainly make sure it is a hearty portion from now on. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. More

Haven't got much to write, only stopped for drinks but very cosy and the staff were very friendly, well worth a visit. The bar areas have a lot of character and have sofas and very nice seating and decor
