It was a long drive down from Scotland but so well worth it for the hospitality shown by Rob, our host and the comfortable room with a view of the lake. We were having a reunion with friends who we hadn't seen for 10 years since they moved to Australia - there were 7 of us - and we had... More

We arrived from Australia very jet-lagged to find that we had accidentally booked the wrong day. Rob took this in his stride, and very kindly accommodated us anyway. He was very friendly and helpful, and took the time to run out and buy the vegetarians in our group vegetarian sausages for breakfast, as well as accounting for two friends we... More

Enjoyed a one night stay here. The room was cosy, very clean and comfortable the breakfast was freshly cooked and very tasty. I'm coeliac and they cooked me a gluten free breakfast complete with toast and had cooked it all separately.

arriving late in the dark we were unprepared for the fabulous lakeside view we experienced in the morning from our bedroom and lounge. Doesn't get much better. Rob is a charming and attentive host, andf we enjoyed his company. I'm sure we will return for a longer stay one day

We visited Rutland Water as part of a fly fishing weekender and chose to stay at (Fishing Legend) Rob's lodge as it seemed to be the sensible thing to do, as he was going to be our instructor for the weekend. Upon arrival, Rob made feel right at home. The en-suite room was clean and spacious and the location of... More

Thanks for those lovely words. It was a pleasure to help you learn the art of fly fishing and to welcome you to our Lakeside B&B. Even in that strong wind you managed a couple of fish! Hope to see you again next season. We welcome cyclists, walkers, bird watchers, sailors and holiday makers. Rob More

Host, location and views superb. Room and breakfast, fantastic. A very warm and friendly welcome from Rob who is a gentleman and cooks top notch breakfasts. Very clean and... More

We booked the Laurel Room - the double and single bed together with the 12 cushions took up the whole room. Rob was very friendly and obliging, but we In our opinion this room did not warrant 4 star luxury accommodation and we did point this out at the time. The location is magnificent, however, and hopefully the problems we... More

A cheerful welcome from our jovial host made us feel very at home. The lodge has great views across Rutland water and is ideal for the fishing tuition next day. Rob recommended a local pub for an evening meal (the White Horses at Empingham) which had really tasty, well prepared and presented food. Rob served an excellent full English breakfast... More

When I found out I was a plus one to a wedding at nearby Normanton Church I asked my parents, who I knew had stayed in Rutland Water, and they suggested the Lakeside B&B. I've not always listened to my parents advice, but on this instance I'm very glad I did! We arrived late on Friday night, greeted by Rob... More
