Enjoyed lunch here after a drink in the small bar. Great service from friendly staff. The food is expensive but beautifully cooked and served. Great for a special occasions rather than a snack. Lovely restaurant with a nice patio area.

Our room was spacious, light-filled and comfortable, with a large bed. We had a good night's sleep with no disturbance. The breakfast was exceptional with lots of choice. We had Eggs Benedict and Eggs Royale, both of which were perfect. The croissants were gorgeous too. We had a very pleasant couple of days in the Stamford area: a day at... More

This was my third stay and was given a room in the lodge. What a fantastic room, large, bright, airy with its own decking. As usual the room was very well decorated, huge bed and a lovely walk-in shower. Would make an ideal room for couples on romantic stays as away from the main hotel. The only only small downside...

We arrived at the hotel and were given a very friendly welcome by the receptionist before being shown to our room for the night, The Queen of Palmyra. The room was fantastic,... More
