Stayed for the night during a business trip to Oakham. Staff were superb and friendly, room I booked was really nice, clean and comfortable. Had a meal there too and it was absolutely delicious. Ideal location too and would definitely recommend it.

Stayed overnight in one of the gorgeous bedrooms. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. We also ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious. Breakfast was very generous and the staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

I had pre-booked a Restaurant table to celebrate a joint shared birthday with my wife. The atmosphere was excellent, the surroundings spotless and the food superb. We chose from the standard 'Lunch Time Menu' but were encouraged to take advantage any additional items from the the 'A 'La Cart' menu if we so wished. A three course meal was fantastic...

My wife and I are unable to remember when we have eaten such perfect roast beef, with all the trimmings. The puddings were equally as good. I had apple crumble, my wife had Bakewell tart, both with custard. Service excellent
