Hotel and grounds are lovely, food was also very nice. Room was basic but did have a good bed and a good night's sleep. Ideal location for exploring Rutland water which was only a short walk away. Would return.

LUNCH table for two selected in glazed conservatory overlooking attractive rear garden in courtyard style. . Well distanced for COVID-19 rules. Excellent attentive food and drinks service. Limited table d'hote menu but most dishes desirable. We both selected very tasty pork sausages (3) with mashed potato, brocolli and gravy.. They could have served a larger portion of mashed potato.Simple ice cream sweet selected with three differenct flavours. One drink was J2O Passion Fruit and soda water topped with lime cordial. Greatly refreshing on a hot.sunny day! Very well done!

Room tip: Sorry did not use any bedrooms!

Two night stay with friends to celebrate wife's 70th Birthday. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, mainly due to the wonderful staff who looked after us superbly. Dinner was very relaxed, served in a lovely dining room with well laid tables and proper linen!
The setting is lovely and peaceful with views towards Rutland Water.
Certainly our rooms could do with some updating, particularly the bathrooms, but they were comfortable and had everything we needed so we were fine for 2 nights and this hasn't affected our 5 star rating.
The hotel itself is a very interesting building and the conservatory area great for drinks.
There is also a lovely outside seating area which was perfect for drinks on our first, very sunny, afternoon.
We will certainly return and would recommend for a break in the lovely county of Rutland.
Thank you to all the staff who were extremely accommodating.

Great double room with lounge area. Nice bathroom, great shower, fresh bottled water in the room daily. Lovely grounds and courtyard to relax in. Good choice of food and extensive wine list. What makes the place is the staff. Well turned out, always polite and courteous and happy to sort out any issues. Well done Mr Browning. I would not hesitate recommending the Lodge for a relaxing few days away.

We had a very pleasant single night after cycling round Rutland Water. The hotel was really good value. The staff were very efficient and polite. The courtyard was beautiful and a great place for afternoon tea or predinner drinks Our room was a bit small but was comfortable and had the most amazing view of the sunrise. The precautions for COVID were well laid out and we felt safe.
