I stayed here with my family for a friends wedding, and stayed in one of their four-poster rooms with a pull-down bed for our two little children. The room itself was quite comfortable, althought you might need to turn the temperature down as it was ridiculously hot - still, rather too hot and controllable then too cold and not.
The bathroom, given the room rate, was quite disappointing - a bath with basic overhead shower is not what I'd expect. If this was refurbished then the room quality would hit 4+.
We didn't have dinner there but did have breakfast - it was fairly straightforward, being just continental style or full English. Well, I say "full", but there were no mushrooms, and the bacon and sausage was disappointing in quality.
So overall it was a pleasant enough stay, but it could do with some work on the bathrooms and better quality (and choice) of food in order to justify the four-poster room rate.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
