Stayed in the East Wing and this was perfect for a four nights stay as we had enough space to relax in our own lounge. The owners always took time to have a chat and a glass of wine, making us feel at... More

Jilly and Michael are perfect hosts. My short stay was for a business trip and their warm welcome and helpfulness was very much appreciated. The accommodation is clean and well presented, and the location is peaceful but easy to find and accessible. The breakfast is very good!

Jilly and Michael are excellent hosts and make you feel one of the family. The rooms are extremely comfortable and it is a home from home. There is a good choice for breakfast - I had salmon and scrambled eggs and it was delicious. We have now been several times and wouldn't go anywhere else in the Stamford area.
