Enjoyed a lovely stay, breakfast was fantastic and staff were friendly. Location is great for Burleigh Estate and walking into Stamford. We would really recommend and will stay again. If you want dinner then worth booking ahead as both nights they were fully booked.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of nights last weekend. Upon arrival, we were told we'd been upgraded to a superior room at no extra cost as it happened to be available. The room we were in was the Stag room which is above the bar, overlooking the main road. It's a beautiful big room, with a... More

Stayed for one night (Friday) in a classic room (Lamb) on a B&B basis. We received a warm welcome and were promptly showed to our room despite the bar, there is no reception as such, being rather busy. The room was compact but well planned out and stocked with a plentiful supply of complimentary drinks and nibbles. Including a rather... More

Warm friendly greeting received after a somewhat frustrating 10 minutes car ride trying to find it. Postcode quoted took us to Stamford high street not High Street St Martins. A comfortable room with good amenities. We chose The Bull and Swan because of the dog friendly policy however the charge of £20 for one night is very excessive (2 metal... More

Visited 25th January - a Sunday evening so the pub & restaurant was fairly quiet in the evening. Food and service was superb. The room (Stag) was unique & quaint. Lovely little touches - toiletries, tea tray etc. The biggest most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! The hotel is on the main drag through the town and traffic... More

At this time of year my wife and I go away for 2 to 3 days to celebrate family anniversaries. The write up on the Bull and Swan seemed ideal. Booking was easy and appeared to be very professional, we were told that to be sure of a table in the dining room we need to book, this we did.... More

I’m pleased that you enjoyed the look of the room on arrival but also somewhat aggrieved with how long it took us to sort out your lighting issues, there is no excuse for these small imperfections that can really affect a guest’s experience. I do hope to see you again in the future to show you how we have learnt... More

We decided to visit the lovely town of Stamford and chose to stay in the Bull and Swan hotel. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff. Our room was excellent, very comfortable and had good quality toiletries, room refreshments and was good to have the small complimentary bottle of vodka. The room overlooked the main road... More

Thank you for your review, I hope to see you again soon. I’m particularly happy to see that you appreciated our toiletries and room refreshments, namely our complimentary bottle of flavoured organic Godminster vodka which always seems to go down very well (literally!) More

We stayed on a thursday night in January, on the dinner b&b deal, where an amount is allowed against dinner. The hotel is attractive from the outside, historic and in the local stone, with a narrow entrance into the small courtyard parking area at the rear - fine for cars, probably tricky for big 4x4s. This is a boon because... More

I’m very pleased that you took the time to post your review, while we unfortunately can’t do much about the noise outside, what we can do is make up for this small inconvenience with both the room refreshments and quirky furniture that you mention right through to the service you received during your stay More

we stopped for the weekend but also had dinner in the Little Bedlam restaurant. Hotel room was very comfortable but a little unusual. Liked the nice touch of the tipple before bed. The restaurant was superb and well worth going to for a special occasion. It's not just the George that can do top notch in Stamford.
