“great place!”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

What a great find this motel was! We took the family skiing for Friday and Saturday (Jan 27 and 28), and found the Stamford via TripAdvisor- stayed here Thurs-Sun. The room was great, very clean, our 2 kids (8 and 10) loved it. In fact, when the resorts were closed on Friday because of rain, the kids wanted to stay in the room! The location is great, close enough to town, and only 10-15 minutes from Bromley and Stratton. Nipper's cafe had great food, we ended up eating dinner here 2 nights; both nights the entrees were outstanding, and reasonably priced. Venison bolognese......yummmm.
When we come back to Manchester area, we'll definitely stay here.

Mark and Lucy P.

James - I know you are a very busy man thanks a ton for finding the time to write this review it means a bunch. Your kids were great hoped they enjoyed themselves on the slopes considering the lack of snow and a little bit of rain but at least you guys went bowling and made the best out of the day. Hope to see you again this winter if not next year for sure. Many thanks, Karen

Reviewed 29 January 2012

we have skiied stratton many times before and stayed on premises every time. This time we wanted something different. Finding top reviews on tripadvisor about the Stamford Motel, my family decided to try it. We could not have been happier on every level. We ate breakfast and dinner at the cute homey dining room called Nipper's Cafe both weekend days. It was the best of going out for dining and staying home. Karen is as nice as could be and my two teenage daughters appreciated the personal touch as opposed to a big corporate motel or hotel chain. We bought a ski and stay package through the motel and saved hundreds of dollars overall. We'll be back for sure!

Thanks a bunch for staying and dining with us - really enjoyed meeting you guys and best of luck in the triathalons - good for you. Hope you guys come back again next year.

We came to the Stamford Motel this past weekend to ski at Stratton. We had two rooms to accomodate the 7 of us and both were great. Very clean and charming! Karen is a great host and eating at their Nipper's Cafe is a must! The turkey chili and roasted rabbit were suberb. Breakfast is outstanding, the banana bread french toast was fantastic. There is no where else I would stay in Manchester.

We had an excellent experience while staying at the Stamford Motel during our ski trip to Stratton. The rooms were clean and tastefully decorated. The restaurant had top notch food and the family that runs the Stamford Motel are lovely and friendly people. Would go there again!
