We enjoyed our stay at The Old Wisteria. The location was convenient for exploring Rutland and the surrounding area. The room was immaculate, breakfast was excellent, and the staff were friendly and efficient. We had dinner in the restaurant the first evening, and enjoyed it very much. It is unfortunate and rather strange that the restaurant does not seem to... More

It was pretty much full with only just enough parking be warned .The rooms were very well laid out out and spotlessly clean with hard cable internet as well as WI Fi. TV coffee and tea with hot chocolate and bisects, ginger and chocolate. Just would wish... More

We stayed here for three nights and found everything very satisfactory. The bedrooms were very clean and well maintained. The breakfast was very nice and cooked to order, but we didn't try the restaurant in the evening. The location is very central and we always managed to get into the hotel car park, but it could be a bit tight... More

We booked a hotel in Oakham because we had struggled to find anywhere free in Stamford as a result of the Burleigh Horse Trials. How glad we are that we did. Firstly we had no idea what a nice place Oakham is. Full of old and interesting buildings, very close to Rutland Water, just busy enough to be lively without... More

I booked the Old Wisteria Hotel as a place to stay while I walked around Rutland Water. The staff were very polite and attentive, the room was quite large and comfortable and the breakfast menu was varied. I had a nice view of the small park across the road. The décor is slightly old fashioned, but not unpleasant. The hotel... More

A small hotel ideally located close to the heart of Oakham. Our pleasant double-bedded room was quite spacious and clean, the reception and breakfast service by the same young lady was very good - above all else she was cheerful!

Hotel in ideal location for the town of Oakham and touring around Rutland. The rooms were very comfortable, very clean and with a large well stocked bathroom. Everything that a good B and B should be. The breakfast was excellent in every way. The one thing it lacked was atmosphere and no area to meet and sit in. The other... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July. The Old Wisteria is in a good location, placed at the bottom of the main shopping street, from which to see Oakham. From the main road the hotel does not seem very large. However from the car park at the rear of the building it is... More
