My wife and I stayed at the Normanton Park Hotel for three nights. On arrival we were greeted in a warm and friendly manner and allocated the Luffenham room.
The Luffenham room is located in the main body of the hotel and is light, airy and of a good size. It is well appointed and has glorious views over the hotel lawn and Rutland Water.
The bathroom has a shower and bath and is also of a good size.
The public areas of the hotel are pleasant and the staff we encountered were very friendly. I note another reviewer comments on the decor, we did not think it was 'tired' given the age of the premises, however we do agree the cleaning regime could be better. The gardens are well maintained but mowing the lawns with a large motor mower at 8.30 a.m was a little early on a Bank Holiday.
There is ample on site car parking which is free of charge.
The hotel enjoys an excellent location with easy access to Rutland Water and the surrounding towns, both Oakhamton and Stamford are worth a visit.
TOP TIP. If you intend to stay for a few days, buy an all day parking ticket for £6.50. This entitles you to park in any of the Rutland water car parks. Otherwise it's £1.50 per hour.
In conclusion, the Normanton Park Hotel is a pleasant place to stay if want a quiet hotel in a beautiful setting. If you like walking or cycling (you can hire bicycles near the hotel), you will not be disappointed. less
