We stayed at Park Gate House for the duration of our second visit to Stamford in July 2011.
As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly Ann Mari who showed us where to park our car and then took us to our room. They have
just two rooms with a shared bathroom, so no en-suite, but that is offset by a significantly lower room rate. The bathroom is large, modern, very well
appointed with excellent quality fittings and there is both a shower cubicle and a bath. The bathroom has natural light from a window which we like and
that is not always the case with accommodation these days. Each room has a set of towels for their own use.
Our bedroom was modern, well decorated and of a good size. There were tea and coffee making facilities together with a television in the bedroom
and everything was spotlessly clean. There is a railway line not far away but we were not disturbed at all by it and I don't actually remember hearing
any trains whilst in the house.
There is a fairly large residents sitting room downstairs with a television and comfortable seating and it is elegantly furnished with antiques. Beyond
the sitting room, at the rear of the house, is a conservatory where breakfast is served. The breakfast really couldn't be bettered. Obviously made from
the finest ingredients it was exceptionally tasty and Amanda commented on the taste of the orange juice, the jams and marmalade and wondered if they
might have been home made.
Its position is such that it gives quick access to the town centre but also to one of the entrances to the grounds of Burghley House. It is very good
value and we can recommend it.
