We stayed at the Elm Guest House for the duration of our visit to Stamford in May 2008.
UPDATE 2016: This establishment appears to have closed.
||As we got out of our car Judy came out to meet us, showed us to our room and whilst we were sorting ourselves
out made us a welcome cup of tea. Our room was modern, well decorated and of a good size. The en-suite bathroom had natural
lighting from a window, which is not always the case, but had only a shower (no bath) and the spray was a bit feeble. There
were tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom and everything was spotlessly clean.
There was one large wardrobe, which included two shelves, but no drawer storage in the room at all which we found a little
surprising. An upright chair and one small armchair were provided but a very short way down the corridor was the large
residents lounge with plenty of very comfortable seating. There were french windows which opened on to a very pleasant garden
with garden tables and chairs.
We met Francis, Judy's husband, the next morning at breakfast. Breakfast was a pleasant affair with a good selection of
fruit juices and cereals where we could help ourselves and Francis supplied the toast and the cooked breakfast produced from
obviously high quality ingredients.
The house has four double rooms, en-suite, all on the ground floor and there is enough parking space for all guests. It is in
a quiet location and within a ten minute walk of the town centre through a small park.
Judy and Francis were very nice hosts and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Elm Guest House.
