We stayed for a free night on a deal from our car insurance.

The hotel was very nice and set in very pretty grounds. There was a wedding on the day we stopped which took over the whole hotel and kept us out of communal areas (the hotel were very willing to work around this by offering to section of a corner of the eating area if we had wanted); worth bearing in mind if you are not part of a wedding party. It is worth mentioning that we did not experience any noise disturbance from this event.

The breakfast was very nice but extremely expensive (£15 pp); may be a better deal if you eat meat.

All in all a very nice short stay in a clean, well decorated room in nice grounds that gave us a base to explore the locality.

Room Tip: If you are not part of an event try and get a room furthest away from the main part of the hotel to...

Whoops! Sorry, our new receptionist charged you the £30 which Take Time Out pay us. It takes a little while to learn all the non standard rates. Breakfast is £8.50, so we will credit the £13 back to you. Thanks for pointing out the error. Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Kind regards

I stayed with my boyfriend over the bank holiday weekend for his birthday as we were hot air ballooning nearby . First impressions are vital after a long drive and we were not disappointed . On a sunny day the first thing you notice is the immaculately kept gardens and immediate serenity . The check in was quick and probably the most welcoming we've experienced , our room was in a converted stable that oozes charm , has all the mod cons and a huge bed and a bathroom the size of some hotels bedrooms ! What really separates this hotel from others is the attitude of the staff who are charismatic and extremely helpful . It's privately run and its nice to see the owners interact with their guests and we were invited into the main house that has ornate decorations collected from around the world that were quirky and added to the charm . There is also a secret country garden , bliss .
We had a Sunday lunch carvery that was scrummy , there is a good selection of wines too .. This hotel is perfect for that countryside weekend break and is conviently located . Hot air ballooning is nearby in Market Harborough , a must !!

A very pretty setting with well groomed gardens giving plenty of space (local beauty spot Stanwick Lakes nearby).
We experienced good & attentive service for our one night stay (surprise birthday celebration) & although we clashed with a Wedding Reception, the premises permitted comfortable separation for both functions.
Accommodation was modern & nicely laid out although our room was small (open the door & you are in bed already - although on reflection very handy for heavy drinkers).
Good range of toiletries plus tea/coffee making and complementary bottled water.
Bedside units with a drawer and one wardrobe equipped with mini ironing board. Room had air con, a small desk with hairdryer. Flat screen TV with Freeview English channels only.
Breakfast menu was adequate with waitress service a welcome novelty although I did think they counted the baked beans.
Sunny weather contributed greatly (see pics). Based on our experience we felt it was pricey which maybe a reflection of the lack of competition in the area with similar facilities.
No problems & very easily found.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main house are much much bigger.

Thank you for your extensive critique. The hotel has evolved from stable conversions and new build over the years so not all the rooms are the same size. We only put 2 people in 7,8 and The Nook, where you stayed, when the larger rooms are full.
I must take issue with you over our pricing we are far too cheap for the service we offer!
Kind regards

The hotel is directly on the A45 and has a main building and covered 'stables' The hotel has a very personal atmosphere and the staff is very friendly.
The rooms are clean and the stable rooms are compact and modern.
The food in the restaurant is very good and the kitchen staff is very flexible when any dietary requirements (as I do).
I would recommend the hotel for few nights stay over in the area.
The Stanwick lakes give great scenery for a morning run or walk

Room Tip: When you like traditional rooms take the main building, more contemporary the stables are best

We stayed for over a week as we were 'homeless' while our cottage nearby was being refurbished after a small fire. Staff and management were very kind to us and even took in our two little dogs. Although we live locally we hadn't realised what a little gem of a hotel we have on our doorstep. Rooms immaculate - wet room great - (I want one at home) food 1st class and gardens beautifully kept. It's easy to see why this is a popular wedding venue and a busy hotel/restaurant. This is quite a unique small hotel which deserves to succeed and we look forward to returning for a meal under less stressful circumstances.

This hotel is a rareity . Set in beautiful gardens , you immediately feel its charm . From the check in staff to the bar staff you're put on a pedestal and nothing is too much for them and you feel forced to relax !! The rooms are well decorated , spacious ( a review on another site claimed they were small , nonsense !) We had a sunday lunch on arrival and had a seafood starter including crayfish , whitebait and smoked salmon that could easily have been a main course , tasty and generous portions too!!
The carvery offered roast beef or pork with all the trimmings and faultless . The staff very attentive throughout, five star service for a busy sunday lunch .
We could quite easily have wiled away the rest of the afternoon in the garden but had other engagements .
On our return about midnight , the restaurant was shut but the staff provided us with a midnight snack anway , thanks !
The beds were large and extremely comfortable , had the best sleep in years .
Breakfast is plentiful with a variety of coice .
Overall if you are coming here for a function or break , i couldnt recommend this more , nowhere could match this for its charm and value for money . Will be back...,
