6 of us visited here, we was sat in the bar area where we was given menus to look at, we then placed our order and sat up there till our starters were ready. We then went downstairs, it is small down there but nice. Our starters came out and they were nice. Main course we all had something different... More

Hubby got a great deal to stay over which included dinner and breakfast. A beautiful period building located centrally for a walk around pretty Stamford. Rooms are as stated, simple and could do with a makeover but comfortable enough for a short stay. We loved the cellar restaurant with the candlestick lighting and very good waiting staff. We didn't like... More

A hotel and restaurant full of character and charm. The restaurant is subterranean, lit entirely by candles ..... hence the name. A wonderful place to enjoy a romantic dinner but equally atmospheric if dining alone. The menu was varied, offering a three course meal for less than £25. The accommodation represents good value for money and includes a DIY breakfast.

This old building gives eight odd shaped rooms which are all individual but they are comfy and have everything you need. It is set back from the main drag and so is quiet. Parking is available alongside the entrance. A large continental breakfast was provided in-room. The location is really good, because everything is just a walk away. There is... More

Stamford is a lovely small historic town build from attractive stone. Candlesticks dates from the 1800s. This is not a chain 'been in one been in them all' type place. It is small and unique - a 'restaurant with rooms' (and I prefer the priority in that order). The owner is an international wine judge, of Portuguese background, and the... More

We stayed one night in room 2. A bit of a trek up the stairs but the room was clean and comfortable. Tight fit between bed and route to bathroom. Bathroom itself large. Surprisingly quiet considering how near to High Street, St Martins. Very well situated for walking into town. Parking is limited at the hotel but we parked in... More

I stayed here 5 or 6 times, and really liked it. Small rooms, old fashioned but well kept. Lovely cavern restaurant - i recommend the fish. Good for the price. Family business. Good bar area. The owner knows all about wine.

I visited candlesticks on Friday evening as part of a group of 7 people. It was my first visit and i shall definitely be returning. After enjoying pre-dinner drinks and selecting our food we were led downstairs to a fantastic candlelit vault to be seated. The room was unlike anything i have ever experienced and a complete gem of Stamford!... More

Very friendly greeting, room on the small side hampered by a lot of furniture in the room, cold on arrival however very warm once heating got going. Evening meal very nice with fab sardines and a great portuguese fish dish. Breakfast okay.

This was booked on the basis of an Internet view but reality was less appealing. The accommodation was clean but very dated. The room was cluttered with furniture and had a bathroom with more space than the bedroom. Breakfast served from a cupboard was a little unusual to say the least. The location is good for central Stamford but parking... More
