Recently attended a wedding and the hotel was excellent, fantastic room, good organisation, food was very good and staff attentive, should have booked for a long weekend. Not quite sure about the other facilities, as we arrived late and did not have time to look around, but the grounds looked good.

Recently attended a wedding and can't fault the hotel, the room was fantastic, the organisation was good, food excellent and staff attentive. We were only there for 1 night, but wished we had booked a long weekend.

We stayed here for a night whilst visiting the area. I thought the decor was looking a little tired and there were damaged floor tiles in the main areas which clearly needed attention. That said we found this to be a clean and comfortable hotel and the room was of good proportions with a very nice complimentary refreshments tray. There... More

I unfortunately only had dinner here but wish I had also stayed here too! I travelled to Stamford to participate in the rat race but only 2 of my friends could get a room here. The staff couldn't accommodate us anymore than they did at dinner. One of our friends was vegan and were provided with more than satisfactory meals... More

I stopped here on business. The property is lovely, the room I was given was fantastic. Large witha massive bed, great deco, beautiful en-suite. Great complimentary tea/coffee/toiletries etc. The only downside was I was a little coldand with it being right next to the road, I was woken around 05.30. Breakfast was in a lovely room, quite slow service and... More

We booked a luxury room and were allocated room 14. Traffic drove past our room until 2.00 a.m. And from 6.00 a.m. Room was comfortable and bathroom immense. We only had breakfast in a rather gloomy room and it wasn't a very appetising buffet.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't like your recent room choice, we do have lots of rooms that are not road facing. I'm somewhat surprised you didn't enjoy breakfast. The room has 18 foot high ceilings with floor to ceiling windows, so it's certainly the first time I've heard the room called gloomy. I'm equally surprised you... More

I was interested to read the other comments from "Virtuous" and "Expectations", wow! key boards must have been melting!. Anyway we booked in on a last minute choice and were glad that we did, our luxury room was large and had all the trimmings that one would expect however some area's lacked a finishing of what I would expect has...

First time visit to this hotel. Had a great time, lovely setting, rooms great, king size beds sooo comfortable. Al a carte food was delicious. Breakfast was amazing. Every member of staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Car park was huge, which makes a nice change. Will look forward to a return trip.

A friend of mine recommended Stamford as a romantic getaway for my boyfriend's 28th birthday. A quick Google query later, and after skimming some TripAdvisor reviews, William Cesil was summarily booked. Arriving at 11pm on a Friday, our first impression was a pleasant one. Ample parking and a well kept reception area on the ground floor, stocked with mandatory antiques... More

hmmm, it seems we got it very wrong on this occasion. I'm genuinely very sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. There are clearly lessons that I and the team can learn from this which of course we will do. More
