Had a number booked business meetings. The rooms are dark and dingy with inadequate lighting. The downstairs main bar area looked uninviting with dirty tired seating and sticky carpet. Staff were good natured and very customer friendly unlike some of the food particularly the afternoon tea which was unappetising and really awful as afternoon teas go. This hotel is not...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to The Falcon Hotel. I am a little perplexed by your review as there are a few points which do not correlate to the establishment. For example, our Bar and Lounge Bar area has a wooden floor and not the sticky carpet you describe in your review. Our main...

Lovely big bedrooms with two armchairs (a rarity), a desk and desk chair, also a most comfortable mattress and a well-equipped bathroom. The breakfast variety and quality is to behold and the public rooms have a nice air about them. There is a good smallish bar (and lovely tap room) with good value wines and a real ale. We were...

Thank you for taking time to review the Hotel following your recent visit. The oak panelling in our Hotel Tap bar is an imposing feature and is much talked about with guests as it retains the old charm of an historic Hotel bar.

Arrived at lunch time and checked in. I can honestly say I have never met such helpful staff before in any hotel. Was shown to my room and after some issues gaining access I was in. The room was clean but a bit cramped. The rooms had been recently refurbished but there was no air con, the curtain had obviously...

We stayed in the outside block and it was fine, the room was cheap and breakfast was included. Uppingham is a lovely old place and worth a visit, the hotel is a nice place to be, the countryside is beautiful.

We dropped in here for a lunchtime drink on a visit to this beautiful little town on an unseasonably cold day in august.
