We spent two nights here as we had never been to Rutland and wanted to explore the area. The hotel is cosy and has a feel of old England gentility! Creaky floor boards, beamed ceilings, ancient oil paintings...we loved it. Although parts of it could do with a bit of a face lift (like me) this did not really detract... More

Stayed in the Whipped Inn in Oakham this weekend for the third time and what it lacks in modern rooms and facilities it makes up for with friendly staff, location and price. The staff at the reception desk (all of then throughout our stay) were very friendly and always keen to help. The room was dated but spacious, clean, with... More

We stayed here for two nights In February, which was a present from some friends for our anniversary via a Buy a gift voucher. Good We had such a wonderful welcome - okay, the receptionist was a little like an out of control fire work, which she readily admitted when we arrived, but we'd rather have someone a little too...

Whilst on a visit to Oakham today, we popped in to the restaurant for a light lunch. The owner, who told us that he had taken over the hotel in October, 2014, greeted us warmly. Because we were to eat again later in the day, we decided to have a starter and a dessert only. We chose a window table... More

I stayed in the Baccleugh room which is at the back of the hotel in the courtyard. This was a lovely old room with lots of space, a large bathroom and a great shower! The lighting was very subdued but the ability to provide better lighting is probably limited by the age of the hotel. The only thing my room... More

We wandered into the restaurant of this hotel during our trip to Rutland water. We did not stay here therefore I cannot comment on the rooms. The food was average but the waiters were attentive and dinner was also reasonably priced. We also got 25% off our meal using a gourmet society card. All in all not a bad deal... More
