I'm planning to stay near Uppingham School and would really appreciate a personal recommendation of where to stay.
Have you had a look at the Falcon in Uppingham ? You could not get much closer to the school than that. It has just had some glowing reports in the local Rutland Living magazine if that counts for anything.
My mother-in-law always sings praise for the White Hart at Lyddington, just outside of Uppingham.
A bit further away (well, 10 mins) is Hambleton Hall.
I live in the area and felt the need to answer, so sorry for not giving a 'personal recommendation' as requested. Hope this is of use anyway.
The Falcon looks very nice indeed - I think I'll give that a go. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply
If the Falcon is full and you don't mind cheap and cheerful, there is a Travel Lodge about 5 miles away at Morcott.
Thanks Aardvark - I do need to be within walking distance of Uppingham School so will have to be closer. Thanks all the same.
Does anyone have a view on the Lake Isle hotel which is apparently close to Uppingham School?
Here's the TA review page.
As I said above I've never stayed there but it looks very good from the outside and these reviews seem to back up that impression..
The Falcon was a good suggestion. Many thanks
Don't stay in travellodge? Because when I stayed in Derby branch, there was a bed bug in it..Edited: 02 April 2012, 16:40
