We only were looking to have a nice dinner, but in the search came upon this lovely place. I wanted to surprise my husband for our 5th anniversary and we both were in for a treat actually. We arrived on a Friday evening, luckily they had a room on a few days notice, booked a package and got such a wonderful deal and great experience. We loved the ambiance of the restaurant, excellent food and service, the Mozart room, relaxing atmosphere, hospitality, and much more. The property is beautiful. We enjoyed every moment of our spa day together. We will never forget our well spent time together and cannot wait to go back!

For special occasions, my husband and I consider the Sanford House first. It is in the heart of the metroplex in a charming old neighborhood, which is fun for a walk. However, the Sanford House is a completely sufficient retreat. The dinners are sumptuous and intimate. The rooms are elegantly appointed and comfy, and so private and quiet, we are never aware of any other guests. The breakfast comes with the most delicious thick home made bread.
The inn is perfect for couples or girlfriend retreats and especially weddings. Karen and Ralph

We ended up at this beautiful boutique hotel late at night after being turned away at all the usual franchises near the athletic stadiums and 6 Flags. Near downtown Arlington, and convenient to FtWorth, there was ample room to park our small rental truck and we had our choice of attractive rooms. We choose the Beethoven Room in the main house with it's gas fireplace, four poster bed and period furniture. The king bed was especially comfortable with quality linens, thick bed pad and an assortment of pillows. Breakfast was delicious and elegantly served in one of two dining rooms, open to the public Thursday through Sat (?) for lunch and dinner. Besides the suites in the main house, the Sanford has semi detached suites with more space and privacy and more luxurious spa bathrooms.........these are arranged around a spectacular patio garden which is a popular place for weddings and events. We felt fortunate to have found this place, 5 minutes away, instead of staying in the cluster of chain places that cater to to 6 Flags and the athletic arenas.

Room Tip: The same owners run a full service day spa across the street where I had an excellent massage and pe...

I booked 9 rooms at the Sanford House for a Company meeting. I wanted a place our team could enjoy and still be close to our offices. The location was perfect. Our team loved the House, breakfast every morning and of course all the great rooms. We had a planned event after dinner back at the house and the staff did a great job of preparing the event.

We have booked people in the house two different times and bith were great experiences. I am looking forward to spending a weekend at the house with my wife. This is a wonderful place & the staff is first class!!!

Room Tip: All are wonderful. Tell the staff what you are look for and they will help find you the best fit!

My husband and I spent a romantic weekend at The Sanford House for Valentine's day. I can't believe we hadn't come here before-AMAZING! We stayed in the Regency cottage-which was comfy and beautiful (not girl and not too masculine) tucked in the corner, which had a beautiful fountain out front as well! We spent our evening dining at Restaurant 506-which served the MOST DELICIOUS, AMAZING, WONDERFUL lamb I have ever eaten. We were impressed to see Chef Mario in the dining area helping pick up plates and talk to the guests. You don't see that too much nowadays...
We also had a couples massage at the beautiful Spa which was very relaxing and enjoyable.
We definitely will be back. It was a great escape, the staff was wonderful, and the grounds are simply beautiful. I could see why people choose to have weddings here.

Room Tip: I would recommend the Regency cottage.(rm 512b) It is on the end of the row of cottages, and you hav...

I recently officiated an outdoor wedding at The Sanford House in Arlington, TX, and found it to be a lovely venue. Amazingly, it was about 70 degrees in early January, and the ceremony was able to take place on a smaller patio area, next to the reception room. The staff, especially the wedding coordinator, were all kind and attentive to the Bride and Groom and all their guests. I found it to be, overall, a well run event, and the wedding party all seemed delighted - SCORE! Very atmospheric setting, lots of trees (even though they were mostly bare for the winter) and shrubbery.

Wow I really can not say enough of the Sanford House and Inn and restaurant 506.

The staff greeted us like we were long lost friends. The check in was smooth and the Beethoven Room was spot on. Not only Restaurant 506 cookies, a bottle of wine, cheese and fruit (THANKS AGAIN CHEF MARIO!!!!). Room was clean and so comfortable.........like staying at a close friends home. We had supper that night at Restaurant 506 and the meal set out by Chef John was amazing (have the lamb!), Demetrius our server was great with service and suggestions (Scallops are a must)............drinks, dessert made us feel extra special! Game day we had a wonderful breakfast and were treated again by the staff as family. Chef Mario arranged our transportation to and from the game which just added to a first class experience.
After the Packer victory Demetrius opened up happy hour for us fans. The girl on reception made the night even better by getting food made for us (She went beyond the call of duty! She also checked us in the first day and I wish I could remember her name). The drinks and food were flowing as we all talked and watched the Sunday night game in the lounge.....................A GREAT NIGHT BY ALL!
The rooms were cleaned to a professional standard that the Sanford House lives by......first class all the way.
I cannot say enough and this will be the only place my wife and I will be staying at in Arlington or Dallas for that matter.....................don't miss out! Thank you to everyone at Sanford House and In and Restaurant 506!
