I stayed here for 11 nights. My room was comfortable and beautifully decorated and I saw many others - the photos tell a true story. The staff are all excellent and nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant is one of very few good restaurants in the area and it also has a nice bar. The place is decorated with...

I'm thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us so much! It really is a treat to hear you could feel right at home in your room and the restaurant -- that's exactly what we hope for. I'm sorry if the laundry service wasn't what you were expecting, though. We're always looking for ways to improve, and this is certainly...

The Brahms room was spacious and clean. It had a cute sitting area for two, an armoire for clothing and a desk. The downside was the proximity to the street and being able to hear street noise in the room. The room is also just above the check in area and the door and walls were pretty thin. Taking a...

I'm so glad you loved the grounds and your room, Kris! However, I'm sorry about the issues with the water. I'll be sure to look into this so we can avoid that going forward. I really appreciate your feedback, and we hope to have you back the next time you're in the area! Until then, Valerie, Manager

The Sanford House is a first class Bed and Breakfast very close to the Ballpark and Football Stadium. Their rooms are wonderful and labeled by composers! An elegant breakfast area and dining room compliment the B&B, with a great chef. A beautiful outdoor area, the grand garden, is perfect for weddings!

We came to Arlington for an art exhibit and only stayed one night but were treated like we were on an extended visit. Stayed in one of the villas. Well appointed, very clean and quiet in a garden setting. Had dinner at the 506 Restaurant. Lovely service without being pretentious and truly wonderful, inventive food and delicious bespoken cocktails. Breakfast...

We spent one night at the Sanford House celebrating a friend's birthday. Everything was first class. We checked into both two bedroom suites, that were incredible, then went to the spa. Massages and facials were great. The wine was a nice bonus, but they charge for it. Only $4 a glass!! Unbelievably reasonable. Can't remember when that happened last. Afterwards...

We decided on a little getaway for my wife's birthday with a stay at the Sanford House. We stayed in the Regency suite and were blown away by how beautiful the room was. Far exceeded anything we expected. The service from top to bottom was fantastic and my wife loved the facial. Cannot recommend this enough for a stay when...

In the midst of UT Arlington, driving through some "interesting" neighborhoods, you expect.. Not this. You enter Restaurant 506 at the Sanford House. A beautiful Victorian era style house, with a beautiful outdoor dining area. And you go inside. You are immediately transported. You left something behind but you can't remember what it looked like.

My wife and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary and could not have chosen a better place. Gonna request the Rivera Cottage next year but I don't think you can go wrong with any of there rooms. We celebrated our wedding and was able to witness another wedding.

Had a wonderful stay at The Sanford House. Spent a long weekend for our wedding anniversary. Our room was excellent and we were pleasantly surprised that we had choices for our breakfast. Had dinner one night at 506 and it was great. Fine dining in Arlington. Would recommend this B&B to anyone.
