This was my second stay at the Lake Isle Hotel as part of a family group. We knew what to expect and again we were not disappointed, in fact the bar was raised higher. This time we had a private dining room to ourselves which just made the evening that bit more special. The quality of the food and service... More

A friend book this place so we could go somewhere different for a birthday celebration. Never heard of the place or hotel but thought why not. The staff were extremely friendly upon arrival and the whole hotel was immaculate. Cannot fault the level of cleanliness. We were in the Champagne Room with the Whirlpool and the room was beautiful. So... More

We had been recommended to stay at The Lake Isle so looked forward to our night away. From the moment we walked through the door we felt relaxed. Staff were welcoming and the open fire and comfortable seating created the perfect atmosphere. The room was excellent with a huge bathroom, whirlpool bath and powerful shower. We had booked a dinner,... More

Stayed here for my birthday treat. Stayed in the cottage which was a delight. I could have stayed all week! Our dinner was equally delightful with fabulous service who cared if you enjoyed the food or not. Would love to stay again.

Took over the whole hotel and restaurant for a special birthday celebration a couple of weeks ago and it was the best night ever. From the day we first booked to the day itself the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We have stayed/eaten there many times over the years and this night did not disappoint....

We have often thought about trying this Restaurant so this was it!, The Restaurant was empty when we arrived but found two guests having a pre dinner drink in a rather nice lounge area. Sadly the open fire wasn't lit which would have lent a nice cosy atmosphere. The service was exemplary throughout, that may have been because there were... More

If you are in Uppingham, looking for something a little special this is a good place to start. The menu varies each time depending on the season but the quality is always very high. I love well presented food that is also well cooked and the Lake Isle delivers on both regards.
