Customer Reviews

Customer Rating: Mrs McEneaney, Stockport On the whole this was a good package. The service was great, especially the restaurant. The hotel was nice, if a little dated. All food was excellent. The negative side was the lunch and walking guide package. The lunch was very basic sandwiches, a pack of crisps, and apple and a bottle of water and the walking information was simply the racks of info leaflets any hotel would have. This was overvalued at £20 and a bit of a let down. Overall, very good but simple changes would make it excellent for future guests.

Customer Rating: Mrs Marlow, Hitchin The room was very warm but a bit dark. The food was lovely. The walking information was a bit disappointing - only one tiny map and it was the one we already had. Oakham is a very interesting place with a castle and local brewery.

Customer Rating: Mrs Cagney, Colchester Friendliest staff I've ever come across. Even cooked some sausages for my dog in the evening!

Customer Rating: Mr Briggs, Retford

Customer Rating: Ms Carey, Chippenham Superb food at this hotel. An excellent chef and team.

Customer Rating: Mrs Van Dok, Cambridge The food, service and staff were of a very high standard and we definitely received value for money. The only disappointing thing was the accommodation. Our room was very dated and badly in need of revamping in terms of decor and furniture.

Customer Rating: Mr Bates, St. Neots

Customer Rating: Mrs Parry, Warwick We booked this 2 night walking break at the Whipper Inn, at fairly short notice. The staff at the hotel were VERY welcoming and attentive - nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is an old coaching house and some of the rooms reflect this history - the furniture is old fashioned in some areas and the decor is dated The bed was comfy and bedding and towels were changed daily. Food was good and well presented. We had read the previous reviews and were amazed at how petty some of the previous comments were. We would stay there again if visiting the area. The break was good value for the price we paid.

Customer Rating: Ms Simms, Milton Keynes Some of the decor was a bit shabby. The service and the general attitude of the staff was excellent and we also loved our room.
