Just returned to The Whipper again after 41 years to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary and took our bridesmaid and husband with us. Turned out to be a great two days with staff who couldn't do enough for us, even to the extent of a celebration bottle of fizz on the house. We were upgraded to the four poster executive... More

My husband booked this hotel for a weekend to celebrate my birthday and to see our son and daughter in law who live in Oakham. He asked them to arrange a bouquet of flowers for him which they did and they also upgraded our room to a mini suite. Very quaint hotel, fabulous quiet location in the market square, and... More

This hotel has attentive and helpful staff. The restaurant and breakfast food were better than most and the standard of accommodation is quite good. The only gripes we had were that there were only two dim bedside lights to illuminate the entire large top floor room and that the room was very cold when we went into it. The manager... More

Superbly located in Oakham - excellent walking at Rutland Water and easy access to Stamford. All the staff were faultless, cheerful and helpful at all times. Large bedroom with king size comfortable bed, quality towels and linen. Very quiet at night. Only minus point is that our bedroom and bathroom need a makeover, This could be a fabulous room.

Stayed for one night and had a wonderful time- all the staff were exceptionally friendly. Rooms individual and cosy, breakfast fresh and delicious- and I can confirm the tequila was great too! Would definitely recommend this hotel.

My partner and I had a shopping trip to Oakham last Saturday and had booked a table at the Whipper inn for a late afternoon/ early evening meal before returning home. Whilst the rain stayed away for once, the wind chill made in feel like minus 20 outside, so the warm welcome to the whipper inn was very welcome. Both... More

Stopped in this quirky old building for one night a few weeks ago and enjoyed the immediate location and the historic county town of Rutland. The receptionist was friendly, helpful and welcoming. As we found our way to our room, discovering passageways and stairways on our mini journey, I was impressed by the quirkiness of the building. All of the... More
