We were not sure what to expect but had we given it more thought we probably would not have been close. The Abbey is a long way from civilisation, midway along a long, windy and hilly road that had room for 1 car so good luck to anyone meeting traffic coming the other way. The reception was empty on our... More

I recently attended a 3 day conference at Launde Abbey. From all points of view the facilities and service were excellent. There was a professional pervading peace throughout the building and at all times. The food was healthy and plentiful. I look forward to returning in the future.

Launde abbey is a unique experience. The abbey is a charming place and very friendly. Meals are well priced and generous in size. Fantastic walks are on the doorstep and other guests stop to take an interest in you. We're not religious so we didn't visit in that capacity, we just enjoy the ambience and slower pace of life at...

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. There are some fantastic places to visit locally, including Rutland Water and the lovely market towns of Oakham and Uppingham, all of which are only a short drive away, so it's certainly worth a return...

We booked a 3 night stay at Launde Abbey in July 2013 for our wedding anniversary. On arrival we were told by a member of the staff (a snarly inhospitable man) NO! we have no rooms in the Abbey for you only in the Annexe. He didn't explain why and gave no apology. He turned us away with the offer... More

Thank you for your comments which were posted at the end of October 2013. Your booking was in August and with respects we dispute your version of events. There was accommodation for you as booked in our Stable block which consists of 19 bedrooms. I understand that a member of your party was upset that we could not accommodate you... More

Multiple people before me have mentioned this, but this isn't a hotel, it's more of a retreat/lodging type place. It took me a few minutes to work out what was missing from the room, then I noticed, no TV! Equally no decent wifi. But if you are staying here, you're probably either at a wedding or some other event -... More

Stopped off for a coffee and a cake on a cycle. I couldn't decide which cake to have so I let the lovely lady at the coffee shop decide. To my delight she came back with a mini selection of cakes because she just couldn't choose. All were lovely, particularly the macaroon. Will definitely be stopping off here again for... More

We're so glad you enjoyed your visit. We think our cakes are delicious and they are all homemade by our Chef who specialises in desserts, cakes and pastries. Why not visit our Snowdrop Spectacular in February and March 2014, take a saunter around the snowdrops in our grounds and then enjoy a cream tea in the dining room afterwards? Perhaps... More

Lovely weekend as part of a group. Large ensuite rooms, good tea/coffee tray in room. This is a retreat not a hotel so no TV, varied groups staying here plus couples. Good food, very pleasant and helpful staff. Highly recommended if you want to get away from it all in lovely surroundings.

I stayed at Launde for four nights at the late bank holiday in May. Be aware this is not a hotel. Your room will not be serviced during your stay. The rooms are clean and good sized and have a courtesy tray which is well stocked and more supplies are available on the landing. Rooms do not have a TV... More

We had our wedding reception at Launde Abbey in the middle of June. As a wedding venue it is simply fantastic. We had a marquee in the grounds at the rear of the property and then Launde did the catering and provided the staff. Most of our guests were able to stay at there as they have 39 rooms available....
