Lovely hotel in a lovely location. Nice non-corporate room in delicate colours. Nespresso machine good. Comfortable beds. Really nice breakfast, cooked fresh, lots of choice. BUT Wi-Fi did not work in either the pub section or the rooms. TV did not work. No bedside tables and only 1 reading lamp between 2 single beds over 6 foot apart. Also, as... More

Vegetables were extremely poor the parsnips were served hard and were black in places, the broccoli was over cooked and pale in colour all were just in a... More

Waiter cleared plates and then kindly advised that they had run out of veg, so would it be OK to have roast beef with just parsnips ! SERIOUSLY !!! Needless to say... More

Stayed one night only. En-suite room was spotless and pleasant. Nice touches; above average toiletries and decaf coffee supplied which I appreciated as I usually take my own! Staff welcoming and downstairs areas comfortable. Breakfast pleasant and adequate. We did not eat an evening meal as we were going to a concert, but the food and choice looked good. We... More

We stayed for two nights with some friends for our annual cycling weekend. The bedroom and bathroom were of a good size. The coffee machine was welcome but only three coffees a day is allowed which is not an awful lot for two people. There is no normal coffee available that can be made with hot water which is s...

Was fishing at Rutland Water last weekend and stayed for one night at the White Horse. The pub was very welcoming and the staff were polite and helpful. The room was a good size and clean. Decor average. After looking at the menu we decided to have a evening meal in the restaurant even though it seemed a little expensive.... More

Great situation, nice walks nearby. Rooms are quirky- with much better facilities than we were expecting. Coffee machines a great idea! Quality linens, comfortable bed, newly decorated, very nice. Restaurant pleasant, food was fresh and hot, served quickly and of a good standard. Breakfast was very good- the breakfast lady was perfect- plenty of everything. Suitable for business and leisure...

We recently stayed for three nights with a large party of friends. Our room was lovely, the bed very comfortable, and the Nespresso machine magic! The only thing was that the large mugs provided did not fit underneath it. You need small cups for Nespresso, but these were easily obtained via the breakfast table. Another odd thing was the bedside... More

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we had a great time. We hit gold as soon as we arrived- complimentary coffee & freshly baked chocolate cake, after which we were shown to our room- the splendid "Edith Weston" room, which was clean & really quite spacious.
