Stayed three days in this amazing hotel. The rooms were cozy and so clean. The staff were all very nice and accommodating. The restaurant was warm and inviting and the food was delicious. They provide a wonderful continental breakfast. We parked in the back parking lot with no problems. The parking lot is small but accommodating for most. I highly... More

My wife chose this hotel directly off the internet mainly because it was dog friendly and had a New Year offer available, she had read TA comments and the photos looked very nice, so off we went. First challenge was finding the car park, a minor point but don't visit if you have a wide motor as the access is... More

I’m disappointed that you didn’t feel we offered you value for money for your recent stay with us, we regularly receive such positive feedback from room 7, including the previous reviewer, so I do apologise it wasn’t to your liking. All of our wines are purchased from a very reputable national company who import from all over the world and... More

This was our second stay at the Bull and Swan and it certainly didn't disappoint. This time we had room 7 (lion) which was absolutely stunning with a free standing bath in the room. The room was tastefully decorated, warm and a pleasure to be in with a huge comfy bed. The bar and staff are a delight and the... More

Thank you for your kind words, I will be sure to pass on your lovely comments to the kitchen team who work very hard to deliver such tasty food (burgers being a personal favourite). Room 7 certainly has the WOW factor with the free standing bath in the room and I’m happy to read this was to your liking More

Warm welcome, enormous comfortable room (Stag) and lovely evening meal in bar. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be booking again soon. It is my favourite place to stay - didn't really want to leave this gem of a hotel or beautiful town.

We have Stayed at the Bull & Swan twice now, once for a Christmas break and once for my birthday. We love everything about it, the location is great with just a short walk into town. The staff are fab and although some rooms are compact they are perfectly charming and comfortable. We take our English bulldog Burt with us... More

I love your profile picture of Bulldog gin, presumably in reference to the lovely Burt, dogs are more than welcome at The Bull & Swan and our ‘doggy’ menu you mention certainly is testament to that. I look forward to welcoming you (& Burt) again very soon More

We stayed for one night in room 1 the Ram. The room was beautiful, spacious and full of character. The bathroom was also spacious, lovely and clean with a separate bath and shower. Both had some nice finishing touches. The dining room was closed so we ate our evening meal in the bar area which is cosy and warm.The food... More

I’m sorry that you felt the room wasn’t as advertised, room 3 is indeed our smallest but does contain all the amenities you find in any of our rooms. I did notice that you rated service highly so thank you for that and I do hope we can tempt you back in the future More

We couldn't find fault with this hotel. Warm, welcoming, exceptional staff and a very good relaxed dining room in the bar area with a real log fire. Would definitely recommend it. We asked for a quiet room and when we arrived we were told that the rooms at the back were the quieter but also the smallest. We were given... More

Stayed at the Bull and Swan in Stamford this week, from the point of arrival, right through to departure, we were looked after like royalty. Excellent friendly reception, superb large room, (Stag); fantastic food and service second to none. I would recommend this hotel to one and all.

We visited a friend who lives in the area and stayed at this pub/hotel. The room was very pleasantly decorated, furniture was in keeping with the hotel, we had a lovely breakfast the next morning and won't hesitate to go back!
