“Absolutely Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

It's like staying in a 5 star hotel, beautifully decorated, sumptuously comfortable bed. Ideal after a hard day in the office away from Home to relax in a home from home but with all the comforts of a top hotel. Sam is an amazing friendly host, providing freshly baked cookie on arrival and willing to heat a ready meal in the evening if you don't fancy the local pub. Bathroom is so luxurious with its slate heated flooring, roll top bath and rain head large shower. Recommend to anyone!

Never stayed at a bed & breakfast before but this is a definite benchmark of what I would expect from other bed & breakfast places now. Absolutely fantastic! If a quiet place is what you seek, here is the place to find it. I can't rave about this place enough - it's just amazing! Very warm & very clean - my fiance & I loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom! Every eventuality has been catered for & Sam, the host, would check all was ok every once in a while. A good personal touch which a lot of other establishments should take on board. Loved the homemade bread and jams too! A fab place that I would definitely consider booking at again!

The Swallow's Rest is the 'Hallmark' of hospitality. Extremely clean accommodation with well thought-out and beautiful decor. Great bathroom including a large walk-in shower and underfloor heating - fantastic, just the thing ! A varied selection of nearby eating venues (both pub and restuarant / bistro) including some discount cards courtesy of Sam. The experience was well managed by Sam who is a first class host.

Fantastic place. Extremely comfortable, very professionally run. The breakfast was first class including homemade bread and grandmother's marmelade. Sam was a very attentative host and her attention to detail was apparent in the quality of the furnishings and the breakfast.

Stayed for one night, Very warm reception rang us on the way to check what time we would arrive.
Room was of the highest standards all facilities as advertised.
Perfect place for a romantic weekend.
This is a Bed and breakfast of 5 Starr quality.
The only thing that i would change would be to delay breakfast at the weekends to 9.30 rather than 9am

Room Tip: Book for a romantic special occasion They even put our champagne on ice The room was quiet

Sam was the perfect host, welcoming and friendly at all times. Answering our questions, which I am aure she has repeated hundreds of times, but you couldn't tell.

Her hospitality history shows but the service she gives has been personalised from the corporate to this wonderful experience that you will get at Swallows Rest.

Stamford was a nice market town for relaxed pedestrianised shopping, and coffee stops.
Rutland water worth a drive after Stamford for a walk or just sit and have an ice cream as we did. Take some crumbs for the ducks!

We visited in winter, so sadly attractions such as Rockingham Castle and stately homes were not open. But we got our Country house fix by having afternoon tea at Rushton Hall Hotel. Served in the Great Hall ut was lovely to wander grounds and interior.

This completed our one full day and made a nice circuit from Swallows Rest.

We drove to Oundle Mill for a fabulous dinner for our anniversary. They do a special fixed price menu on Thursdays making it great value. Book for this restaurant though.


Best BB/guesthouse we have stayed at in the UK.

Congratulations!
