Welcome to the William Cecil
The William Cecil at Stamford re-opened in 2011 after a complete refurbishment inside and out. The hotel lies within the magnificent Burghley Estate, the centrepiece of which is Burghley House, one of the foremost Treasure Houses of the United Kingdom. Add this to the beauty of Stamford - which came top of The Sunday Times 2013 list of the best places to live in Britain - and The William Cecil must be one of the best located hotels in the country.
Within a two minute drive from the A1, the hotel, formerly known as The Lady Anne's, is perfect for both leisure and business - whether for a light lunch on the terrace, a short meeting, a celebratory meal in our restaurant or a romantic night away, the setting couldn’t be better – and our team of chefs offer local, fresh, seasonal and utterly delicious food.
Come and enjoy a warm welcome, an atmosphere of relaxed efficiency, and an experience of quirky luxury.
We can’t do it all though so we’ve had to make some hard decisions: no chintz; no drizzles, towers or stacks; no Magners; no staff name badges; no mini-bars... Sorry.
