We stayed for two nights at the Whipper_Inn in the delightful market town of Oakham. All the staff were the friendliest we have ever encountered, nothing was too much trouble, and multi tasking seemed to be their speciality. Our room included a huge double bed and two lovely armchairs for watching TV. The food at breakfast and dinner was both... More

They made us very welcome & were very friendly, a lovely... More

Really nice place. Right in middle of town. The welcome was fantastic and the meal was lovely. Only slight moan, the bed was a little on the small size but other than that no complaints. Really good value for money, would definitely visit again.

Utilizing a gift card this hotel was chosen from those participating in the card scheme. Initial availability enquiries by telephone proved difficult as their computer system was "down". Eventually managed to confirm booking by email quoting the gift card unique code. Immediately received return email asking for credit/debit card details to cover additional costs. My reply was that these details... More

The Whipper-In is an old quaint hotel with lots of history. The staff were very welcoming and could not have been more helpful, even making us a bespoke cream tea one afternoon. The food was fantastic, breakfasts were lovely and the evening meals were excellent. Our only disappointment was a poorly fitting sheet on the bed which made sleeping uncomfortable.... More

Friendly staff, spacious rooms. Excellent freshly cooked breakfast. Although it was a little chaotic! Oakham town is lovely. Nice shops and restaurants. And Rutland water great for walks just up the road. Worth a visit
