Booked an overnight dinner, bed and breakfast stay because we liked the look of both the wonderful rooms and delicious menu. Booked a luxury room and specifically asked for the lovely Cecil room which lived up to expectations...romantic and beautifully appointed. Welcomes were warm, the staff were very friendly, attentive and knowledgable...a real credit to the hotel. We went down... More

I'm not always a fan of British hotels, especially the older ones, they tend to be tired and often not well maintained. However, this newly renovated hotel on the main road into Stamford was a delightful find. I think that it is part of the Burghley House estate (famous for the horse trials in September). The room was quite small... More

My partner and I stayed at the hotel For a valentines meal / overnight stay - this was our first visit and would recommend . Considering the restaurant and hotel were busy the service was great, meal was excellent quality and the hotel staff are very friendly, for a high quality hotel it is not stuffy and has a relaxed...

We stayed for a long weekend just before Christmas for a birthday treat, and took our little dog with us (we booked through Pets Pyjamas). Upon our arrival, we were given a very warm welcome and made to feel special. This place is very dog friendly, our little dog had lots of attention and dog biscuits from the staff. We... More

Second time in coming here and not disappointed. The rooms are all individual and great for a relaxing, romantic stay. Breakfast was superb akin with the hotel staff. Top quality all round and would recommend for anyone who just wants to be made to feel special.

We have just had a lovely night's stay in the William Cecil in Stamford. We are travelling to Scotland and wanted a night's stop near the A1. We chose the William Cecil as the rooms on the website looked really nice and breakfast was included. We arrived on a very cold January night with snow on the ground. As we... More

Just pulling into the car park made you think of luxury, spaciousness and history. There was a big field at the end of the hotel's garden which Freckles the Jack Russell appreciated greatly. The room was huge and had historical features, not that I asked what any were. There was a church style door to the bathroom and some very... More

We stayed at The William Cecil on 22nd and 23rd August '14. As the weather was warm, we were a little concerned with the heat, having read previous reviews regarding this hotel. The room was at the top of the building and was indeed on the warm side. We talked to reception about this and within minutes an air cooling... More
