Stayed here with my GF in April 2017. What a great hotel! We wanted to relax so made full use of the facilities with a game of pitch and putt, swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi. Our room overlooked the lake and was one of the best views I have had from a hotel room and I've stayed in hotels all...

Stayed here for 2 nights recently on a bed and breakfast basis. Hotel staff very accommodating when booking by telephone and offered us the same room as we had previously stayed in. Ate dinner on the 1st night in the bar area - best chips ever (triple cooked). Ate in the main restaurant on the 2nd night (booking recommended). All...

We stayed one night in a very large room in the newer block. The room had everything we needed including a selection of biscuits and hot chocolate. As a woman of traditional build I do like large bath towels! The dining room has a view of Rutland Water and we saw a red kite fly over at breakfast! The swimming...

My sister booked this for all the family for Easter weekend. We were advised that there would be things going on for the children, which there wasn't. and When we asked about it, no one had a clue what we were on about. The room was extremely mediocre, we had a superior room. The view was outstanding! Inside the room...

We booked 1 night in the hotel for my daughter's 8th birthday present (her idea) and she loved it because we were upgraded to a better room with an amazing view. Strong wi-fi connection in the bedroom. There were lots of things to do like swimming, crazy golf, bowling and table tennis. However, what let it down was the food...

We booked this hotel, one for the location and two because it looked like a nice country house hotel with lots of charm and character. When we arrived it was a struggle to find a place to park that was not too far away from reception. Car parking is distributed around the hotel buildings and if not close to the...

We stayed one night and had booked a premium room. When you enter the main part of the hotel you think wow, unfortunately things went down hill from there. Room was up some steep steps and we were disappointed it was very small. The bar & restaurant were up more steep steps and completely away from the main building. The...
