We stayed for two nights in the four poster room and enjoyed the peaceful tranquility of the location and the convenience of being only a couple of miles from Oakham. Although the room was compact there was a large guest lounge next door and an outdoor seating area over looking the water. The bed was very comfortable and the full... More

Stayed at the Lakeside B&B in order to attend a nearby wedding and to fly-fish for part of the weekend as well. The location was perfect for both objectives, and Rob was a fantastic and very accommodating host. The room had two small beds in it and a nice view of the back-garden. Overall a very nice experience. Would be... More

Had a lovely stay, great location, excellent hospitality and good wholesome home cooked breakfast. Bedroom was a little tight on space, we had a double but there was also a single. It would have been much better with just double to give more space but for a short weekend break we couldn't complain.

Great to see you, I do understand your point about 2 beds in the room. However, many people coming here request a twin room or a family room with a double and a single room. The B&B is a former lodge and gate house for Barnsdale Hall so the rooms are not huge, that's why we offer the spacious Lakeview... More

A lovely B&B perfectly situated on the north shore of Rutland Water. Beautiful views across the lake and ideally located to explore the local area. Lakeside is absolutely charming and Rob was a fantastic host who made us feel extremely welcome. Stylish and comfortable en-suite rooms topped with a very tasty breakfast - I can't wait to come back!

The location here is exceptional, matched only by the warmth of the welcome by Rob, the owner. Our en suite room was small but clean and newly carpeted.The bed was comfortable and we were well looked after. Breakfast was fine and the locally cured Rutland trout on scrambled egg, a really special treat. The dining room was also newly carpeted.... More

Rob, the location and the breakfast was lovely. When you get some staff the rest will fall into place. It was right on the cycle track so perfect for our needs. The track is wide and well maintained with lots of refreshment stops and good views.

We had a wonderful time at the lakeside B & B. The location was idyllic, the accommodation homely and cosy and Rob was a fantastic host - not to mention a delicious home-cooked breakfast! I would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely come back to visit again in the future.

We stayed here at the weekend and couldn't have been more shocked and disappointed. We booked the 'Lake view' room with the four poster bed. Let's start there. This room was on the ground floor directly off the main thoroughfare and dining room so we were conscious of the noise we made and aware of other noise being made. The... More

I'm sorry that your stay wasn't as we would have hoped. I can understand that 'if something's not right then nothing is' and we apologise for that. The comments on the breakfast may be slightly strong but we take all comments seriously and aim to improve going forward, it seems that our usual high standard wasn't achieved on this occasion....
