    Very convenient for the centre of town. Pleasant room and bathroom.Very good breakfast. Helpful members of staff. It was also very convenient as I was attending a funeral reception in the afternoon in the same hotel !!

    I found the room somewhat too warm during the night. No means of turning the heating down or off. One of the pictures in my room (a original woodcut by William Nicholson) had no glass in the frame - worrying in case it got damaged.

    Friendly staff but some are more focused and caring for custmers than others. Previous visit led us to high expectations which were generally well met.

    Bathroom extractor fan was not working and despite welcome pack promise to immediately rectify faults we were told it was disonnected and the maintenance man would not be in until Tuesday. Still inoperative when we left Wednesday, commenting to the General Manager on the discomfort of the unventilated bathroom (no windows either).

  • Group of friends

    Comfortable well presented rooms and excellent bathrooms!

    Car parking round the back could do with better signage back to the hotel ...

    The hotel staff could not have been more helpful. Our room was much bigger than we expected and very comfortable and clean.

    location.

    This is a sad hotel well past it's sell by date, in need of total renovation. I had to hold on to the side of the bed to stop rolling into the middle. The carpet was filthy, the curtains were barely staying on their track and the shower door had fallen off prior to our arrival and was in the corridor. It was never replaced during our 3 night stay. The a staff were not friendly, the bar had no beer from the pump and no atmosphere [we were the only people in it on a Saturday night] The table cloths were not change between customers even when there were drink stains all over them. The cups were all stained. I could go on, but surfice to say we won't stay there again and 3 star rating is a joke.

    I visited the restaurant and the food was excellent.

    Very noisy floors on the first floor.

    the tranquilty of hotel and of the location

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    location was excellent and parking facilities good.

    the hotel needs a good lick of paint and upholstery cleaning.

  • Couple
    10.0

    The staff were excellent, always cheerful and helpful

    Would have been good if the room had had a shower in addition to the bath

  • Single
    7.4

    The charming room overlooking the courtyard and the central location especially on market day

    Lack of relaxing area for 2 octogenarians in the evening

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    good food and helpful staff

    our room was a bit short of natural ventilation and artificial lighting

  • Couple
    6.2

    Convenience for wedding, close to the church and reception. We only slept and changed in the room, so it was good enough for that.

    The gentleman on reception walked off after we checked in and didn't even tell us where to find our room.There was no hairdryer as Booked.net stated was included, the bed sagged in the middle and the springs sqeaked with every movement, the 2 bedside lamps did not work, the table with the tea making facilities was not level and rocked, and we got dirty feet walking around as though the carpet wasn't hoovered.

  • Single
    7.4

    Very comfortable bed and good food and wine. Both dinner and breakfast were good and service was friendly and efficient. Reception staff looked after my case until I wanted leave Oakham later in the day.

    Corridors are very 'up and down' - not a problem for me but anyone with difficulties in seeing or coping with steps would need to be wary.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Conveniently located in the centre of the town whichw as about the only good thing about it. Staff were friendly.

    Room totally unsuitable for someone with a disability. Lighting was very poor and one could not read a newspaper even with the curtains wide open. There were no night lights in the bathroom so you had to switch on the main light in the bathroom which then woke up your partner. Brochure said Sky was avauilable but this was only Sky news and ITV2. The cost of drinks was stupid prices for a hotel that woudl onlt scrape up 1 star in my home country.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    The only thing we enjoyed about the hotel was meeting our friends in the bar on the Saturday evening when we seemed to liven the hotel up

    Everything seemed to be on a shoestring, When brekfast bowls emptied they didn't seem to be refilled without the need for a reminder. Appeared to short of staff. Staff appeared to cover several duties. Also there was dirty laundry left on the corridor overnight which was not good for the overall cost of the stay.
