We stayed two nights for a family celebration lunch. Really surprised when we arrived at 7.30pm on the Friday night to be told that we were too late for the restaurant. There was only one couple eating in it! Fortunately, Oakham has a good range of restaurants within 2 mins walk. Our celebration lunch was pleasant, well served and the... More

The old Wisteria is probably the most exciting thing about this hotel. It runs along the wall of the main house as you go to the hotel annex. The latter is more modern and very clean and comfortable if a bit characterless. We were there on a Tuesday so could not eat in the restaurant.

Breakfast is the usual juice,cereal,fruit and the choice of cooked eggs bacon sausage beans tomatoes etc always served on a piping hot... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights when on a walking trip and it was a lovely place to use as our base. The car park entrance is around the back and it's a bit narrow to turn into but we managed to find a parking space without too many problems (although it does get very full). There was... More

Stayed here for two nights and would definitely recommend as a base in the area. The room we had (room 6) was really spacious with a good sized bathroom. It was spotlessly clean and the place has a real charm. The bar didn't seem very well used but the breakfast was very good.

A nice hotel but the rooms are quite dated and needs an update. Nothing much matches and looks well used. The room was spacious and clean though and the bathroom was fine. The hotel bar does not seem to get much use and when we returned after a meal out it was near enough closed with only one other guest.... More

i'll start with the one disappointing detail because I want to end this review on a high note. The bathroom was unventilated and desperately needed an extractor fun. I suspect the whole corridor had similar bathrooms because there was a slightly damp smell in the corridor but not at all in the rooms. Other than that the room was nice... More

We booked for one night to explore Rutland for the weekend. Situated right in Oakham with a convenient car park behind the hotel. The room was clean & fine - bathroom had just been refurbished and was excellent. Nice small quiet hotel, breakfast was ok - I have had better choice in other places to be honest., but it was...

Had a two night stay here and it was excellent. The room was immaculate with a large and very comfortable bed. A very large bathroom with unlimited hot water. Plenty of coffee and tea supplies in the room. The hotel was very busy while we were there but soundproofing was excellent as we did not hear anyone in the corridor... More

Just had a two night break here. Such a peaceful relaxing hotel with really helpful staff. The huge bed was so comfortable and the rainfall shower terrific. Booked in advance for evening meal and it was delicious. Will definitely be returning. Smashing.
