    Relaxed atmosphere and they let the dog into the bar area

    Very good

    Staff exeptionally friendly and helpful. Hotel restaurant food delicious - all freshly cooked. Oakham is a pretty town next to Rutland Water lakes.

    Furnishings in main areas shabby. Corridor carpets looked dirty in places. Wallpaper peeling. Decor in room a bit better but certainly a bit tired.

    Exceptional

    The room .service,facilities and friendliness of staff were of an excellent standard and great value for money. I have stayed in hotels of, ostensibly, a higher calibre which were greatly inferior and less accommodating than this little gem.From the outset I was treated with courtesy and consideration.No question or request was dismissed as trivial.We had a tasty evening meal,served in our room;greatly appreciated after a gruelling day.

    It was perfectly charming.My 22year old daughter agrees wholeheartedly with me,so it's not a generational bias.

    Fabulous

    Lovely room. Very comfortable armchairs and bed. Charming hotel, old worldly feel with modern conveniences. Staff at breakfast in particular were charming.

    Lack of overhead light in room. Bedside lights insufficient to light whole room.

    Fabulous

    Very good location in the centre of town. Very good breakfast. We e joyed a very nice meal in the restaurant.

    It could do with a bit of upgrading in the bathroom. A proper shower or a proper bath, ours was a hybrid and not good as either.

    Very good

    Location, right in the centre of Oakham. Cosiness of the lounge/dinner for our evening meal, and the more functional breakfast diner. The staff, although mostly of non-British nationality, were friendly and efficient.

    The room in which we were billeted was very dark - there being a wooden overhanging structure outside the only window. Not having an overhead light in the room accentuated this fact. There was some controversy with the central heating in the room - but once we had mastered the idiosyncrasies of the thermostat, all was well.

    Good

    This is a quaint hotel, in a fantastic location, right on the historic market square of Oakham. Free car parking is available. The room we had did have all of the facilities we would expect, including a well stocked refreshments tray and toiletries. It was cleaned to a high standard. There is a delightful outdoor courtyard too.

    The staff at the hotel leave a lot to be desired. We did not get much of a welcome at check-in. We had to ask what time breakfast was served, and we had to guess the location ( bearing in mind the hotel had 2 restaurants) as no one told us where to go. Service in the bar and a breakfast was hit and miss. The public areas could do with some renovation, as they are somewhat dated.

    Its location The cost, although if my comments below are fixed, I would be glad to pay more. Ali in the bar and the Friday afternoon receptionist

    The food needs some attention. Too many items are deep fat fried and it is obvious that the fat if quite old.Decor in Heythorp. Stains on carpet and very dusty lamps. The room looked nothing like the pictures on the web
