Set on the edge of the attractive market town of Melton Mowbray, famed for Pork Pies and Stilton Cheese, Sysonby Knoll occupies its own secluded grounds of 5 acres with river frontage. We are ideally located on a main route into Melton Mowbray - just 1 mile out of the town centre. This Edwardian country house has been owned and run by the same family since 1965 and carries the highest quality rating of any hotel in the town, with a relaxed, family run atmosphere. The downstairs area of the hotel has had a complete refurbishment in early 2013, to include the reception, bar, coffee lounge, meeting room and restaurant. All of our 30 bedrooms are comfortably appointed with all the facilities you would expect at three star level, and the more spacious superior and executive bedrooms offer an even higher level of comfort with larger televisions and higher quality furnishings. Most of the bedrooms overlook the quiet central courtyard area, while two of our four poster bedrooms both command fine views over the gardens and river, with cattle grazing beyond.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent 2 nights here and will definitely come again if we have other things to do in the area. A warm welcome from the man on reception was followed by really friendly service from every member of staff throughout our stay. We had a beautiful and spacious room with a four poster bed, sofa and easy chairs. The bathroom was large too and everything was in good working order. The gardens are just beautiful and you can tell the place is well cared for by the on-site owners. Breakfast was cooked to order so was hot and fresh with good quality ingredients.

We originally booked into the hotel just before the spring of the first lockdown on a prepaid, non-refundable, non-cancellable rate. Our booking was in association with the pork pie making experience at nearby Brockleby's which inevitably closed down through the successive lockdowns. Not only did the hotel continue to honour our original booking despite several cancellations and rebookings, but when we finally arrived there this weekend, more than a year and a half after the original booking, they offered us a £10 refund to use at the bar. The staff were welcoming and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the food in the restaurant delicious. This was our first visit to this part of the country. We would definitely return.

We booked a 3 night B&B deal through Best Western for late September but had to delay due to illness. The hotel was very helpful and happily changed the booking to suit. On check in we were shown to a spacious and very comfortable room and informed of the revised procedures due to the virus. The procedures seem very effective without ruining our enjoyment of the hotel facilities.

The bar and restaurant are very comfortable and the evening meals substantial - we only managed to have desserts once! The breakfasts were also excellent with top quality bacon and sausages and Wilkins of Tiptree preserves! Although we were informed the hotel is operating a reduced menu, we still had a good choice of dishes and the ingredients were of a very high standard.

The staff were all unfailingly polite, friendly and very helpful. We were made very welcome and hope to use this hotel as our base for future breaks in the Leicestershire/Rutland area.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel and all the staff from reception to housekeeping made that time relaxing and enjoyable. Our dog was welcomed too and there was space aplenty outside for her to run around. We heartily reccomend Sysonby Knoll

Stayed overnight to attend small wedding reception held in the grounds.
I have stayed in many Best Western hotels around the country as like the standard and quality that the chain offer but this hotel was different as if felt more like a family run hotel who really cared about their guests and always went the extra mile.
The lovely cleaning lady on Saturday morning with a big smile on her face after I dropped my litre of water all over the landing, not a problem, the gentleman (Gareth, I think) helped with advice, cable ties and scissors to help decorate my car, and his son later in the day even though they were in the middle of completing their own project both happily stopped and gave their time to help. The biggest thanks has to be to Jude and the ladies working from breakfast and through the day always going the extra mile and the food was prompt and delicious.
Would definitely recommend this hotel and would happily return with my family as offers everything you need for a relaxing comfortable stay.

In the pre pandemic days of 2019, my husband and I planned a cycle tour for our club members to visit the East Midlands. Because of covid, dates had to be changed. Changes were made without any hassle although there were 21 cyclists to house for 4 days and some for 5 days. The logistics and preparation for this group was no problem at all, neither for Vicky the hotel Manager, nor for Jenny, the hands-on Hotel Owner. Both were extremely helpful and made sure our stay was comfortable, not only for us, the organisers, but also for the cyclists who were so looking forward to travel after the long lockdowns. We believe that to run a successful cycling tour, the base is paramount. We could not have made a better choice. A warm welcome was had by all from a friendly and efficient staff, comfortable rooms and beds to rest the wary legs at the end of the day, pleasant lounges and garden to sit in after a day's ride to compare notes, and a tasty and copious dinner to replenish the calories spent on the Midland hills. The dinner menu was extensive for fussy eaters, vegetarians, pescatarians, etc... Every day a new menu was on offer with healthy and tasty dishes. As leaders, we were quite intransigeant on time-keeping in the morning. A very varied breakfast was on offer and served at our tables promptly so that everyone could be ready at the appointed time. We all went home refreshed having forgotten the Covid bluesy days and restrictions. A big thank you to the Sysonby Team!

First time stay at Sysonby Knoll for a 2 night mid week break. Very helpful and friendly welcome. Allocated a nicer room than expected when booked so we were pleased with this. Modern bathroom, great shower but the towels were in bad condition, housekeeping staff should check as one towel was badly stained and one had a massive hole!! Management and/or staff always available. Good breakfast, not too much selection but adequate. No tongs for the croissants so chose not eat as unsure whether they had been hand touched by other guests. Restaurant for Dinner convenient for 1st night stay. Overall a relaxing break.

We stayed here recently for one night as we were attending a family funeral in Melton Mowbray. From the moment we booked, to checking out, the staff were outstanding and so accommodating.

Our room was fabulous. We booked a superior room but were allocated a four poster room overlooking the beautiful gardens and countryside beyond. The room was well appointed, immaculately clean, comfortably furnished and included large, flat screen tv, iron, ironing board and hairdryer. Be aware, the latter mentioned items may depend on the room type booked. My sister-in-law was in a standard room but didn't have hairdryer. She was otherwise very happy with her room though.

We opted to stay for evening meal at the hotel. There was plenty of choices despite the hotel only recently re opening with few guests due to Covid-19. Our evening meal was delicious, as was the breakfast the following morning.

A previous review mentioned their room being a little cold. Just for info, the heating in the rooms can be controlled by the guest by a dial on the wall, which is what we did. We weren't cold but had got caught in heavy rain and needed to dry our clothes....

We would love to visit Sysonby again in better circumstances and stay a little longer. Despite the sad reason for our visit, we had a lovely stay and can't praise the staff highly enough for their excellent service. Thankyou to all at Sysonby Knoll, we hope to visit again soon.

This hotel just outside Melton Mowbray, provided a friendly welcome and a comfortable two night stay after a long journey battling snowy conditions. I was staying here while judging the British Pie Awards in the town. The room was spotless and afforded views of the beautiful gardens. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. I am gluten free and my husband is dairy free and they provided an excellent breakfast with gluten free cereal and bread for me and a cooked breakfast for my husband. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings and were impressed by the service and attention to detail, checking our dietary requirements and making sure we were happy with our choices. The food was appetising, well presented with generous portions. Congratulations to Jenny and her team. They went beyond the call of duty when Gavin drove us to the rail station on our last morning in the snow as there were no taxis or buses available. Thank you again. I would definitely stay here again.

Myself and my dog had a really lovely two night stay at this hotel well. It has managed to retain the a feel of a country house family-run hotel. All the staff were professional and couldn't do more to make our stay comfortable. The hotel is spotlessly clean throughout. The restaurant serves up a good range of dishes and the meals I had was all very tasty. In addition to all this there are beautiful grounds that in the summer would be lovely to spend time in. Finally I have never stayed anywhere that is so dog friendly it was a lovely touch to enter the room to find a dog bowl with a complementary gravy bone already in it and even a throw left specially for the dog if needed. Thank you to all the staff, we had a lovely time
