We stayed here for one night and found the higgeldy-piggeldy building quite charming. Decor is in keeping with this and although we did not eat in the restaurant, the bar was very cosy and welcoming. Breakfast was good - no complaints at all. And the location is excellent - right on the beautiful market square in the town centre. Secondary... More

Enjoyed our stay until just before 6am when the people upstairs got up. Unfortunately the floorboards above our room are too noisy for the room below. The receptionist said I must be a light sleeper and should allow for an old hotel. We are aware hotels have creaky floorboards but this was extreme and I am not a light sleeper.... More

I am very disappointed to read that despite enjoying your stay with us at The Whipper-In you have rated us so poorly following the early movement of the guests in the room above yours . As you can see from earlier reviews on this site, Mr Mogridge and his team always work very hard to resolve such issues as we... More

We only had a meal at the hotel, but were impressed by the warm welcome and helpfulness of staff. Albeit they were providing a set menu that evening I requested fish and chips with a gin and tonic batter which I had seen advertised outside the premises earlier in our visit to Rutland. The meal was excellent
