It was almost like a chapter out of Sherlock Holmes. I arrived at the Stamford Station on a fog filled evening in November. The ten minute walk from the station to the Candlesticks had me looking over my shoulders every ten paces. But as soon as I arrived at the hotel, the warmth which permeated from the owners wiped away all notions of Jack the Ripper and company. For the next two days, thier kind hospitality made my stay there a pleasant one. And not forgetting the excellent fish that they served (could be from their Portuguese heritage). For anyone wanting to step back into time with turn of the century (19th century, that is) type bedrooms, this is the place to be.
