Our two-day stay at Candlesticks was an unexpected highlight in a 3 1/2-week trip to England. My wife and I visited Stamford because my great-grandfather had lived there 100 years ago. We chose Candlesticks because it was inexpensive and an easy walk from the train station. What a smart choice! Host Nelio Pinto was a perfect combination of warmth, unobtrusive helpfulness and local knowledge. When we had to rush dinner in his delightful cellar restaurant, he arranged to have dessert waiting in our room when we returned from the theater. OK, it's centuries old. The rooms are small, the stairways are narrow and the floorboards creak. But it's warm, comfortable and charming. We had a delightful time.
