Went back this weekend since they sent us an unbelievable promotion and we had business in town. Enjoyed the stay - the room was nice and clean and they bought little flat screens since we were last at the place and indoor shutters for the windows. Adam and Karen were great and very informative about things to do since it is the off season. They opened a new restaurant - that was part of the promotion breakfast was free - and dinner was discounted. See review of Nipper's. We will be back this winter. Great Bromley packages. Only 1.5 miles out of town.

Room Tip: Room 14 - great views - upstairs

It was our November promotion in honor of opening the restaurant - just glad that you were able to take advantage of it. It is offered to anyone who has stayed with us in the past and if we have there e-mail address. We will do another at the first of the year. Many thanks for taking the time to write the review and we hope to see you again real soon.

Stayes there for a night an loved it. The owner was great and really knows the area. Shes willing to make your time there the best you can have. It's a short drive from the town and is very quiet. Breakfast at their restaurant is must.

I heard the place has only recently been refurbished and it shows :> Love the clean room with itz wallpaper and armchair and quaint wooden chair and chests of drawers (lots and lots of drawers). I even liked the shower. A hairdryer and extra blankets were provided without our asking. My mum loved the coffee sachets provided in the room. They just opened a restaurant but time did not permit us to try it. Pretty near Manchester Designer Outlets too.

We stayed at the Stamford for 3 nights in September. The motel lovely as was the area of Manchester.

The room was clean and spacious. The bed was huge and very comfy. Bathroom was modern with a very powerful shower. Room also had coffee making facilities, fridge and cable TV.

Owners were extremly pleasant and very helpful, full of ideas of where to eat and visit. They told us about a walk that was nearby to see a waterfall, great walk and amazing waterfall, if you have time do it.

The motel is ideally situated, just a few minutes drive to the centre of Manchester.

Great value for money.

I would definitly recommend the Stamford.

When we were leaving we took a look at the new restaurant the owners were building, it looked lovely!

My husband and I stayed in April. adam the owner was very friendly and helpful. We had just visitede hildene and it was cold and snowing. We stayed overnight as we planned to spend the next day in Bennington. Adam suggested some places for dinner that night and breakfast the next morning. We also did some sho-pping and visited the bookstore. When we checked out the next day we met Adams 2 dogs. They were so cute. We mentioned we had a dog and Adam told us to bring her if we stay there again as they allow pets. This is good to know. Our stay was enjoyable, and the room was clean and quiet. There was a coffee maker and a small refridgerator in the room. We ran out of coffee and adam brought us more. They even provided extra blankets. What big name hotel does that? They were thinking about building a restaurant. we did not get to meet Karen but maybe we will on our next trip. We are planning on returning in April. We are going to bring our dog and maybe the restaurant will be built by then. If you are in this area this is the place to stay it is clean, reasonable and the help is great! i give it 5 stars.

Room Tip: We had room 10. It was the closest to the office. It had a nice view and was very quiet.

Clean room and tidy room. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. He gave us great recommendations around town! We had a fantastic time during our short stay (2 nights) - ended up going to the bookstore, Orvis, and Depot 62 all on his suggestion. We would definitely stay here again when we're in the area.
