Staying for a long weekend with friends and their little dog, we were made welcome from the minute we stepped into reception. We had booked two adjacent rooms off the courtyard which was easier to exercise Oscar morning and night. The rooms are large, with enormous very comfortable beds and are ensuite. With the age of the Inn, whenever guests... More

We unfortunately had a very poor experience on our 2 night stay. Like previous review we had issues with no hot water, then no cold water and then no water. It didn't effect the heating of the room (uncontrollable) which was of sauna heights. At £125 i'd expect a shower screen or even somewhere on the wall above the bath... More

I am very sorry to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us at The Whipper-In. I will certainly raise your feedback regarding your room with both my new General Manager and the housekeeping team at the Whipper-In.

We turned up and there was no running water. Apparently a village-wide problem but it didn't seem to be an issue for our friends staying in other hotels in Oakham. We paid £120 for the night for a "double room" and it was basically a single. Very dark and dingy - needs some serious renovation. Absolute waste of money. Staff... More

I am sorry that on this occasion the Whipper-In did not met with your expectations. But as an old coaching inn, Brook Hotels have always tried to furnish and decorate the Hotel sympathetically,reflecting both its history and its place in the market town of Oakham. There was no running water but this was not the fault of the Hotel. Of... More

Following a scary experience at the Old plough at Braunston. See review! We had to find a hotel in an area unfamiliar to us...in the dark. Luckily we came across the Whipper In Hotel. The staff made us feel very welcome and were so sympathetic about our experience. They quickly prepared a lovely room and made tea for us. Our... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights so we could visit Rutland Water. The receptionist was very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Our room, the Pytchley, was a little shabby and not the room we'd thought we were getting when we booked online - but it was inexpensive, fixed price of £58 bed and breakfast, booked a couple of weeks...

The staff here are really friendly and helpful but the décor is dated and shabby. There is a distinct lack of attention to detail, for example there was a bundle of dirty cloths on the floor at the side of a chest of drawers on the landing which stayed there the whole time we were at the hotel. The first... More

We had a lovely 2 night break recently. The hotel was charming. It was a little "creaky" but understandably so, given its age. Our room was fine and the bed was really comfy although the shower was a challenge. The food was excellent and the staff welcoming and accommodating. I did suggest having back ground music in breakfast and dining... More

Well located, very old, charming converted coaching inn. The courtyard was lovely ( although we stayed in a damp, foggy November we could imagine what it would be like with a bit of sunshine!) The private car park was a just short walk from the courtyard entrance. As we arrived for a Saturday and Sunday night stay there was absolutely... More

OK - so the Whipper Inn is not the smartest, or the best equipped, or the newest, but it is also not the most expensive. What it lacks in facilities, it makes up in a warm welcome and great staff. The rooms are a bit quaint, a bit tired and could do with updating, but they are clean, the beds... More
