I highly recommend a stay at The Cecil to anyone planning a trip to Stamford and or Burghley house. Everything about our stay was a real treat which was exactly what I had been hoping for. I took advantage of the Burghley deal offered by the hotel. This included a two for one offer to visit Burghley house, room, dinner and breakfast at the hotel. I made the reservation from abroad and requested that the ticket for two for one entrance be sent ahead to my mother as we wanted to visit Burghley house the day of our stay and it happens to be closed on a Friday. This was done without question or a hitch as promised. Parking was easy and the hotel's location very convenient to all that Stamford has to offer. We were able to walk from the hotel into the town center and there is also access to Burghley house.
We were immediately made to feel welcome on arrival with a friendly greeting at the front desk and were fortunate enough to have our booking upgraded. We were walked to our room by the receptionist which was something of a surprise, but a nice touch.The room we stayed in was beautiful, very spacious with a lovely bathroom and best of all its own wonderful walled garden. The bed was extremely comfortable, though in need of better quality pillows.
Dinner prices were I must say a little steep and the amount allocated to those on the offer only just allowed for two courses. The portions seemed a little small, but were beautifully presented and turned out to be delicious, really well prepared and deceptively filling. Our waiter and waitress were really attentive and did everything they could to make our dining experience a good one. After dinner we ordered drinks from the bar and drank them in the lovely conservatory, another treat.
Breakfast in the morning was again of a very high quality and delicious. Our waiter was the same one who had served us at dinner, but he showed no signs of fatigue and buzzed happily about the room making sure everyone felt welcomed and had everything they needed.
We would happily have stayed another night and would have liked more time to enjoy the outdoor seating area adjacent to the restaurant for lunch which looked lovely.
Everything at this hotel was done to a very high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I am already researching the other hotels in this chain for a future trip and if in the Stamford area, would certainly stay at the Cecil again.
