The George, Stamford

The George in Stamford is another coaching inn we stayed at.  Some parts of it are about 1,000 years old!  And it is located just off the ancient Great North Road.  The building was very quirky with lots of twisting hallways, staircases, and rooms tucked away here and there.  My room was at the end of a little hallway with a little door!  It also had beautiful carved woodwork, real fireplaces, and a really nice bar.  The food and service were excellent.  The photos of the wall murals are from the ladies room up the stairs from the lobby.  Another thing I noticed in England is they don't seem to be all that concerned with handicapped accessibility.  Most places didn't have elevators!
