Hotels in Oakham
Hambleton Hall, with spectacular views overlooking Rutland Water, is small and personal and more than any other hotel seems to convey the illusion of staying in an immaculately run Victorian country house.
According to all of Britain's major guide books, the hotel is among the very best outside London. Aaron Patterson, Head Chef since 1992, uses a lot of produce from his own kitchen garden as well as local lamb, fish (from the lake), poultry and game to give modern British cooking his own characteristic twist. The restaurant has a splendid wine list, and was awarded Cellar of the Year in 1997 by Egon Ronay.
