This was a voucher gift given to my best friend by her sister for her birthday. We eagerly booked in; when we called it was explained that afternoon tea was served from 11.30am, that it was a plentiful platter of delicious sandwiches and cakes including strawberry tarts and unlimited coffee or tea. He also told us we could if the... More

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. Visited twice now. Friendly staff and the service was excellent. Relaxing atmosphere and great bars and restaurants near by. Some great history about the old coach house. The picture of the old man who looks like he's going to cry is absolutely stunning.

I used Whip In for a training seminar. A great welcome from Robert and his team and nothing was too much trouble. Refreshments and lunch delicious. Recommended for anyone who'd like to run a training course/seminar/conference in a venue with lots of character and friendly efficient service.

A very pleasant and enjoyable stay with extremely friendly helpful staff who went the extra distance to make our visit truly memorable. I would definitely stay here again as the food was excellent and local beer served well.

Lovely 2 night stay here. Great location in market st, close to town and the perfect base for sightseeing. Lots of lovely restaurants close by. Lovely warm welcome from staff. Room comfortable with a lovely view over the very pretty courtyard. Lots of little 'nooks and crannies' to sit around in throughout the hotel. Special mention for the night porter,... More

My wife and I have just returned from afternoon tea at this hotel. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist and led to the lounge which was cosy and nice. Our order for tea and coffee was taken quickly and within minutes the drinks and sandwiches arrived. The sandwiches were nice but as already stated in other reviews,... More

We spent two very pleasant nights at The Whipper-in. The room allocated was not suitable for our needs and so was immediately changed to a much better one. The twin beds were very comfortable, the bedding crisp and the bathroom was spotless. Our stay was enhanced by the very friendly and efficient staff. We wish Robert and Cornelia every success...

My mum received a voucher for Mothers Day for afternoon tea for two. How exciting, we thought and we chose the Whipper-In Hotel because of its location. We arrived an hour early in bad weather (the plan had been to mooch around Oakham but it was raining heavily) and asked whether we could come in. The staff were very accommodating... More

Dear Ms Steele, Thank you for your comments. We offered you to change your room upon arrival since the one allocated to you was not to your liking. Regrettably you had already made up your mind, within the hour, that you did not want to stay with us. Your comments on our restaurant and lounge are of course a matter... More
