This is my second stay at the Fieldhead in 4 years. It is a very friendly and charming place to stay. So convenient only 2 mins from the M1 and a few minutes from Loughborough, however it feels almost rural in location.
It is ideal for those on business and those looking for a charming base from which to explore the surrounding areas and be somewhere with character and soul.
Make no mistake it is not just a pub with rooms. Yes it has a lovely pub with great food and service downstairs but the rooms are more hotel like and much larger than the usual featureless modern boxes you get especially the feature rooms. They have a good TV a large comfy bed and a powerful shower amongst the usual facilities.
Breakfast is table service for cooked food in a separate restaurant and a continental buffet too. All very fresh and quick. Ample parking too.
I will use it again if up that way.

Room Tip: If you are a couple try a feature room they are lovely and very spacious.

Stayed for 2 nights. Room was clean, modern, spacious and had all necessary facilities such as an iron, hair dryer, etc.
Bed was large (super kingsize) and very comfortable.
Although based above a large pub you could not hear any noise whatsoever from downstairs, which was my main concern.
The pub itself was lovely and full of character. We had an evening meal there which was very nice and resonably priced. Breakfast which was included had a nice choice, was freshly made and very tasty.
Will be going back again when we are in the area.

Me and my husband stayed here in the four poster room, and loved every minute of our stay. the room was to a high standard of cleanliness ( myself being a housekeeper noticed things probably most would not normally take note of) the staff were very friendly and made us feel we were priority guests. shower was very powerful and gained a good continuous temperature. complimentary soap, shampoo, towels and tea/coffee/biscuits etc.. the room provided a sofa and drinks table, a flat screen tv a double wardrobe a comfy thick carpet and a good solid firm mattress. breakfast was very appetising with a well built choice on the menu. from Danish pastries, cereal, choices of ommletts, full English, salmon, toasties and eggs Benedict. good choice of condiments i.e glass jars of jams and honey. scottish butter and marmite. we really enjoyed our stay at the fieldhead hotel as we thought we would, (being a regular customer in the bar) we WILL be back again :-) Mr & Mrs J

My partner and I stayed here for the weekend.On arrival we attract attentionfound a more than ample car park. Reception is slightly annoying. It seems to be permanently unmanned and you have to use a telephone on the counter to summon someone for attention. Having pre booked we were expected and were directed to our room which we were horrified to find had not been prepared. The previous occupants bedding was scattered on the bed, wet towels in the bathroom and dirty cups on the side. The manager was swiftly up to the room to see for himself and immediately apologised and moved us. I think we were in fact upgraded as the new room seemed slightly better set out and the bed was definately bigger! The bath room was a good size as well with an extremely good shower and plenty of hot water.So overall, a satisfactory outcome to this. The room was comfortable and we were not disturbed by any noise from the corridor, other rooms or outside the building. Breakfast was quite satisfactory with a good choice of both cold and hot options. The hot foods were prepared to order and staff were more than obliging to personalise the menu for you. Curiously, the 'fresh fruit salad' was a series of bowls with fruit in from which you created your own salad! Overall, we were quite satisfied with our stay. The only thing that lets the establishment down is that the public areas, corridors etc are certainly in need of an upgrade. Paintwork etc looks rather tired and scuffmarks and scratches abound on woodwork and doors. The bed rooms however are in much better condition We would certainly be prepared to stay here again.

Staff very friendly. Room clean and a good size. Location ideal as near motorway but not too near to hear the traffic. Good selection at breakfast, though husband disappointed as salmon hadn't been delivered.
