For a one night stop-over en route to Yorkshire this fitted the bill beautifully. Ease of access to Rutland Water would make it great for a longer break, especially if you like cycling or walking but can't cope with hilly terrain. We only had time for a short stroll, which led to a little Italian restaurant overlooking the reservoir - tasty minestrone soup with Italian bread for lunch. Would be interesting to try dinner there some time. We actually dined at the hotel's own "Clock" restaurant - a lovely, cosy setting for an excellent meal with good service. The hotel's receptionist, whose name unfortunately I can't recall, achieved the perfect balance between friendliness and professionalism.
