Stayed at Brook Whipper Oakham for 5 night to explore the National Byway routes on my bike earlier in August 2021. The room I stayed in was very spacious with lots of storage space, beautiful furniture, very comfortable, clean and quiet. The hotel has a lovely courtyard, did very nice food and a minutes walk away from Oakham beautiful castle that is all lit up on a night. The staff where lovely and my bike was safely kept inside a function room at the hotel. I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and it’s ideal for exploring beautiful Rutland Water only a few minutes drive away,

They say you get what you pay for but in this case they need to do a little more for their charge. In the restaurant waiter in evening wears his mask around his neck and not over face, menu outside different price to inside, room ok but lacks. Recommend better tray of coffee/tea, shower very slow, sign on back of door shows fire route from another room, room lighting poor, no desk to work, dinner ok but nothing special. Wish I’d gone down the road for dinner. Breakfast slow service. In terms of COVID, I didn’t feel very safe. Lovely old building in the middle of Oakham though, with parking behind (if you can find it).

Dear charlese413 We appreciate your comments regarding your stay and will look into this with the GM. The wearing of masks should be continued by our staff in order for our guests and residents to feel confident and this will be reiterated to all the team. We have noted your other comments regarding the menu and safety routes and will rectify this immediately. Kind regards Denise Ummat

Myself and my girlfriend went for a relaxing break in Rutland and could not have chosen a more perfect place to stay! The staff were absolutely wonderful and made our stay one to remember. I mentioned it was my girlfriend's birthday during our stay and came back after breakfast to find a birthday card and flowers in the room! Such a special touch. We dined in twice during the stay, and the food was really tasty. There was a good selection on the menu. I recommend the lamb shank. The hotel has a lovely courtyard with great atmosphere to enjoy a drink as well. The hotel is very close to Rutland Water or a day trip to Stamford. It's a great place for a staycation this year!

Very friendly and helpful staff and lovely cooked breakfast. Good food menu also with plenty of choice. Bedroom was a good sized family room. Getting hot water running was a bit difficult at first from tap and shower.

Dear Andrew M Thank you for your feedback and comments today . We are delighted to read that the team looked after you so well and they will be disappointed to read your overall score on this occasion. The programme of improvements that was started prior to March 2020 , was put on hold but although the industry was so badly affected by the lockdown closures we are happy to advise that the improvements will continue throughout the Autumn. Kind regards Denise Ummat Director
