To be fair I expected a little more luxury for £110 per night. Quite a quaint establishment in a lovely town. Receptionist allowed us to check in early as we were going to a wedding in Oakham Castle. We stayed in room 20 on the ground floor. Unfortunately uncomfortable bed and tired flat pillows were not sleep inducing. bathroom, however... More

Well worth considering if you want somewhere to stay in the area. Pleasant rooms and a good breakfast (although I didn't eat dinner or lunch there). It has a convenient central location and there isno problem about parking or access from the railway station.

Loved the room and the fantastic new bathroom with rainfall shower. Breakfast was good and the staff were all really friendly and helpful. We didn't have dinner here as the menu was a bit restricted, and when we got back there was no-one else in the bar so there wasn't much atmosphere but we enjoyed our night caps. One thing... More

Booked in for one night with my partner. The room and bathroom were a bit dated but spotless. Breakfast was very good. Getting parked in their car park can be a bit of a lottery, but if you're looking for a good value hotel centrally located in Oakham then this is it

Myself and my partner stayed at The Old Wisteria this weekend, and were so pleased with the service, location, cleanliness and breakfast during our weekend break! We were staying in Oakham as a base, while attending a wedding 5 minutes up the road near Rutland Water. The manager Debbie was fantastic, allowing us to check in early to avoid rushing... More

Picked the Old Wisteria as it was very convenient for walking into the centre of Oakham. Decided to arrive a day earlier than anticipated which the hotel was able to accommodate & then when we arrived asked to change rooms as the one we were initially given faced on to the road. There was no problem with changing rooms &... More

Stayed in this little town as part of our honeymoon. Hotel is very quiet, plenty of parking and nicely presented. Room was a good size with four poster bed. Would recommend if staying in Oakham area. This is a very nice town to stop off in, a number of places to eat too.

The bedroom was spacious and well decorated with a modern bathroom / shower. The room service was excellent. We booked here because another hotel was full. We will book here instead of the other hotel next time.
