We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bull and Swan over the Christmas break. Stayed in the Wild Horse Room with roll top bath and huge walk in shower. Unusual layout of the room... the toilet and bathroom were in separate rooms across a small landing, I enjoyed the quirkiness of it but my boyfriend wasn't so sure and it may not be to everyone's taste! We ate in the hotel in the evening in the bar area rather than the restaurant as it was fairly quiet on the Sunday evening.The meal was lovely and the standard and quality of the food was repeated at breakfast when we enjoyed continental breakfast followed by Eggs Benedict.
The hotel is only a 5-10 mins walk in to Stamford. It's a beautiful town for a stroll with it's Georgian architecture and riverside location.
Throughout our stay I found the service to be excellent. Working in the service industry I'm forever measuring the quality of service wherever I go! I found the staff at the Bull and Swan to be attentive yet relaxed, professional and friendly. The overall experience during our stay was a very good one. Particular credit to the guy who served us at breakfast who was particularly charming and attentive.
If you're looking for a quaint and quirky place to stay in the centre of Stamford with heaps of history and great service then I would highly recommend the Bull and Swan.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Once upon a time there was a drinking club at Burghley House. It was founded by The 5th Earl of Exeter in 1684 and it was called The Honourable Order of Little Bedlam. It had an eclectic bunch of members: The Baptist Earl of Gainsborough was known as Greyhound, The Hon Charles Bertie was The Stag and The Earl of Denbigh was Tyger amongst other nefarious characters. They would have drunk locally brewed ales, feasted on Burghley Estate and other local produce and created total bedlam. Things have a habit of coming round and we are delighted to invite you to dine on our local produce, sup our fine ales and obviously behave very, very well! ... more less
