We stayed for one night as my wife was attending a nearby show. The room was large and comfortable with a high-quality bathroom. Everything was clean and well kept. Breakfast was of good quality and served by a helpful and friendly waitress. The only negative was the small car park which was jammed full of cars, some blocking each other... More

Sometimes when I read reviews on Trip Advisor I have to double check that some reviewers are writing about the same place, and that is the case here re negative reviews. We only stayed here one night but wished it could have been more. On arrival it was nice to find a decent car park. There was plenty of room... More

I struggled to bring myself to give this a 3 star as the staff were SO excellent during my 1 night stay, but as it was a business trip, and when you go for business you NEED a good nights sleep - I have to rate it based on what I needed it for. The OLD Wisteria Hotel gives a... More

Stayed one night on business. Well located for town, for pubs and restaurants. Small car park, I couldn't get a space because it was full, this wasn't a real issue though as there's a public car park next door. This was free to park 6 pm to 08:00. Room was fine I thought, nice clean bathroom. Curtains didn't block out... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay here and it was ok. Location is great, just a short stroll to the shops in Oakham. The room we had was a little dated and could do with a bit of a facelift but it was huge, comfortable and clean. The en suite was fine, again a decent size with a shower... More

Booked for a romantic break. Welcoming staff but the pine bedroom furniture is very tired and in need of refurbishment or replacement. Avoid the coffee at breakfast at all costs. Evening meal / bar empty both Friday and Saturday nights. Restaurant only opens to pre ordered meals but there's no atmosphere at all. Plenty of other excellent eateries in the... More

Wouldn't bother staying again. Light bulbs took a while to become bright, and very narrow halls. Was glad we only stayed a night. If there's nowhere else then it's not too bad. Relatively clean anyway.

I stayed here for 3 nights and was pleasantly pleased with the overall standard. The room was fine, if a little small, and was well cleaned every day. The breakfast was very nice. It was quiet and the welcome was good. A nice place for a business or holiday break.

It is my fault for not checking as to whether or not hotel had a lift. It didn't. And when we asked if anyone could help us with our bags, we were told there wasn't anyone. We didn't have a lot of luggage- just carry-on sized suitcases, but stairs had VERY narrow treads. Room was okay and good strong shower... More

Breakfast is great, decor is from 1980s (dado rails and 'Fred West' green' gloss work). Rooms are very pleasant, but there are many nicer hotels nearby. Unfortunately not much good will to customers. We've stayed here many times over recent years but feel we were treated unfairly and with contempt on our last visit. If you need to cut your... More
