We stayed one night here after abandoning the prospect of staying a second night at the appalling Marquis of Granby in Wellingore (not the place of the same name also in Sleaford) The Carre was a wonderful haven of comfort and cleanliness. We had a good night's sleep and a lovely breakfast.

Comfortable tidy room.Slight drawback was only 3 handpumps (spoilt somewhat with 9 in last place)but all 3 were in fine form. Excellent breakfast buffet choice- allthough as we have... More

Stayed at Carre Arms Hotel as visiting family in Sleaford. A welcoming reception received on arrival, the staff could not be any more obliging, Lovely food and presentation, beds comfy and rooms equipped with everything which was required. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

The hotel for the price should be better. I have spent several years working away from home, and this place, being around my normal budget fell well below the standards I have come to expect. The room was outdated, stuffy and claustrophobic and had 'old room smell'. The ensuite required being brought into the 21st century, towels felt like sandpaper.... More

We hired the back room of the hotel to hold a christening reception for our daughter. We could not of asked for any better service. The members of staff catered to our every need and we're always there to help if ever we needed. The buffet we had was amazing, all of our guests and ourselves fully enjoyed it. It's... More

Friends came up from Kent and experienced a special night at the car arms, All four starters and main courses were outstanding, the owner Lisa went that extra mile and got the cheaf to cook a main course that wasn't on the menu 5* service

Would recommend Carre Arms Hotel if you are looking for somewhere in this area. Its good to be reminded of a more personal service when you are used to brands that are very samey. Even if that does mean slightly out dated room and furnishings. I received a very warm and helpful welcome. Food was good so all in all... More

I stayed here for a wedding and was very pleased at the level of service, Lisa and her staff were always smiling and helpful, the conservatory was beautiful, the bar area was warm and welcoming, we had dinner Friday night and it was excellent. I have only ever written 2 reviews, the first was due to such a horrid hotel,... More
