We chose this hotel for our annual get-together of friends: it is a large group of about 45. We made a group booking and for a group of this size, it was possible to get a good discounted rate. The management were extremely helpful in making all the arrangements. They have many function rooms, mostly upstairs. There is also a large venue for weddings etc and while we were there, there was also a boxing match arranged there ! Bar is ope 24 hours for guests. Breakfast is adequate and I particularly liked the crisp bacon; perfectly cooked. There is a large green at the back, with out-door wedding venue.
the hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and tolerant of the lots of small children who were playing (rather noisily) in the reception area.
One particular employee who stood out for me was Leanne, who was extremely accommodating, kind and efficient.
Caution about sat-nav post code: Must use NN17 - 2AE for correct location. [Google sometimes comes up with the post code of NN17 - 1AE, that is wrong and will take you away in another direction. ]
Great value for money. Rockingham Castle is very nearby. Rutland water, with all its outdoor activities is about 15 minutes drive away. less
