Location, size of room, atmosphere, friendly staff, really nice breakfast.
Tatty decor in rooms didn't match up to photos online, shower hose in bath but no shower curtain, no bath robes as stated online, service well intentioned but ramshackle at times.
Excellent dinner with varied menu. Breakfast extra points for not wrapping the butter, sugar and jam. Could have been offered a greater choice of fruit juices. Bathroom had a recent make-over and was very comfortable and convenient. Wonderful fluffy towels. Staff were most attentive and helpful.
The ?Edwardian beds were not the most comfortable ever. The room was rather too hot with little scope for cooling it down.
Phone signal is lousy. Had a number of long distance business calls to make and lost the connection many times. Had to go outside to get a good signal . Unfortunately, I am sure this will deter business users from returning.
Breakfast was first class. Spacious room, comfortable bed. Ideal location but a bit tatty on the outside. Good range of TV channels.
At check-in, the guy didn't say much + just threw our keys on the bed + walked out. Had to come home early because we couldn't get in after 11pm.
the service the food the rooms the atmosphere the friendliness.
The catering was good.
The standard of our room. No mirror in the bedroom. Toilet seat broken. Room thermostat not working and temperature in room unbearably hot. Windows had to be opened thus hardly any sleep as room over car park.
Lovely views from bedroom, great food and quiet location although popular with the locals.
Apart from pub no real lounging area only one chair in bedroom.
The room, food and location was fantastic!
Considering the amount paid, customer service was very poor! Took half an hour for someone to come to the desk to check in! This deal included a 3 course meal for £30 that apparently doesn't exist! Took a while to be shown to to the table at night, no menu and wasn't offered a drink and then when checking out tried charging me for the food again! Shame dogs not allowed in garden as friends birthday and couldn't even sit and have a drink with them before the meal!
We arrived late and were welcomed by happy staff who could t have been more helpfull. The food was excellent and obviously popular with locals. Our room had a view over Rutland water room 4. The room was in need of a few repaired but certainly not as bad as some reviews. Lovely breakfast too. Will return.
This quaint farmhouse type hotel was just in such a lovely place, with fabulous views of Rutland Water and lovely surrounding areas of little thatched cottages etc. The food was also delicious and beautifully presented. All staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Not a lot at all that I didn't like! I would just say that perhaps some things are looking a little tired and could do with a spruce up. This did not harm my stay in anyway which was very enjoyable.
Full of character and very comfortable room
Service was a little slow
location was awesome, breakfast was very good.
bed was a little uncomfortable. Room only had a bath, no shower, although it was a big bath.
Great location with wonderful views over Rutland Waters. Excellent restaurant. Friendly atmosphere. Lovely village setting.
Lovely location Comfortable accommodation Excellent food Mostly pleasant staff
Massively overcharged for evening meal. This was satisfactorily settled after complaining. Upstairs unbearably hot even though not particularly hot summer weather. Too hot to sleep comfortably.
We visit the finches quite often as it is one of my favourite places for lunch. We stayed one night ,on this occasion, after a wedding at Hambleton Hall. The staff were very busy but all excellent. The room was spacious with a lovely big bathroom with an excellent shower. We had a tasty bar snack in the cosy lounge and an excellent breakfast in the dining room which has lovely views of Rutland water. I wish the weather had been good so we could have sat out on the attractive patio.
I could have done with a well lit mirror in the bathroom. I found the decor a bit grey and dull. A splash of colour would have helped.
Food was very good and staff were very polite but the restaurant service was just OK. The setting overlooking Rutland water is beautiful.
The twin room was very small and tired looking with a hole in the wall above one of the beds. The mattresses need replacing and the shower cubicle had black mold in it! What a shame it's so in need of care and attention as I'm sure it was once a lovely place to stay.
Bedroom needed 2 chairs, no fruit at the breakfast table
Location was excellent. Food good. Comfy bed, lovely room, lovely Bathroom. Very quiet at night.
Quite a few things on the menu were not available, some fresh fruit at breakfast would have been nice. We were told to close the windows at night because of the midges, but there is no air con and the room temp was 29degrees C. We were given a fan which helped a bit, having said that there were no midges!
Lovely views. Great bathroom. Food was nicely presented and of good quality.
Decor in corridors and main bedroom was a bit tatty. One of our window catches was broken and the mirror had fallen off the wall. There were no scones for the cream tea and we were told there was no sausage at breakfast but then 5 minutes later the chef found them. Staff were all nice but seemed disorganised. Room was nice but not worth £130.00 per night.
Couldn't sleep. Room above reception too noisy .
Don't sleep in the front bedrooms. Extremely noisy.
Restaurant Friendly staff Good quality food Lovely patio area for outside dining Great location for long walks and cycling
Room temperature was unbearably hot Bathrooms in need of redecoration and a hand held shower with no curtain is not adequate Reception should be manned or a bell provided
The food was good in a nice setting .
We booked and paid extra for a view of Rutland water but there was a massive marquee outside our bedroom window which obscured our view, this spoilt our experience as it was otherwise a lovely place ,
Lovely location and view from patio. Peacefull. We had excellent weather and ate breakfast outside. Food was excellent.
Not a £100/night more like £70 tops. Room 6 was very small and badly in need of spruce up. Squeaky bed and shower (we had bath option) either v hot or v cold !
Proximity to Rutland Water Very friendly and helpful staff
