Well located hotel

Cons: Sound proof the rooms!!!!
Overall a nice place with lots going on and located close to all that Rutland Water and Oakham have to offer. However, the rooms are in several separate buildings with lots of steep steps between them so if you have mobility issues you may struggle. The other major issue for us was that there is near zero sound proofing between the rooms, so what ever you say can be heard by those next door and you can hear them as though they are in the room with you. It gets very annoying if you have a snorer and/or a noisy neighbour like we did. Staff are aware of the problem but seem powerless to do anything about it except move you to another room if possible - it wasn't for us, so the stay was spoilt! Overall though a nice place, we would go again but a bit wiser next time.

Great hotel

Pros: . Made booking at last minuet so didn't know what to expect. would definitely recommend it. Great location. staff very friendly.
Cons: Wasn't sure how to get to lake. There must have been a map in the room but we didn't see it.
Location: Great location. Views of lake etc. A wee bit hilly. Barnsdale gardens is the place we wanted to visit. There is a huge amount to do and see.
Great location. Didn't realise there was so much to do. Very peaceful. Would certainly visit again.
