When is a hotel a hotel? And when is it a restaurant with rooms  or a boutique BB? Size matters, I am sure, and so this list of hotels in Rutland focuses on the larger hospitality centres. This list is purely alphabetical. At the time of compiling it, I have not slept in any of them!

Barnsdale Hall Hotel on the northern shore of Rutland Water has 66 rooms in total, most in modern blocks around the grounds. Time-share lodges (sometimes available for holiday rentals) are also in the grounds. A popular weddings choice, there is also a Spa & Leisure Centre.

Barnsdale Lodge, on the north side of the A606 road, so about half-a-mile from the shores of Rutland Water. There are 45 bedrooms, plus some self-catering lodges. Bar, Restaurant, weddings etc.

Brook Whipper-In Hotel on the Market Place in Oakham has 24 rooms, with a Bar & Restaurant.

Greetham Valley Hotel – a modern 35-room hotel at Greetham Valley Golf Course 8-10 miles north-east of Rutland Water. Two Restaurants and a Bar, plus self-catering lodges and – of course – golf.

Hambleton Hall has an enviable Rutland Water location with grounds running down to the water. 16 very individual rooms and Rutland’s only Michelin-starred restaurant: it has held its star since 1982.

Normanton Park Hotel on the eastern shore of Rutland Water has 30 rooms. It is independently owned, but a member of the Best Western consortium. Bar & Restaurant. Because of its location, is a popular choice for weddings.

Redwings Lodge (formerly the Travelodge) is on the A47 in Morcott, south of Rutland Water. 40 rooms and a breakfast room.  A cafe/bar/lounge/diner on the same site (separate ownership) offers all-day food.

The Falcon Hotel in Uppingham has 26 rooms, almost all recently refurbished. Right on the Market Square, The Falcon also has two bars, a lounge and restaurant.

The Garden Hotel on High Street West in Uppingham has just 10 individual rooms, so its inclusion here is borderline and it often describes itself as a Guesthouse. There is a residents’ lounge, but no other facilities.

The Old Wisteria Hotel in the heart of Oakham has 25 rooms, plus The Cottage Bar & Restaurant.

There are, of course, other hotels around Rutland’s borders, including hotels in Stamford, Corby hotels and hotels in Leicestershire.
