“An excellent stay with high value for money.”

Myself and my colleague were staying for a business trip while attending a course at a local hotel. The value for money offered by Kirkee House made it a very attractive option on the internet when booking the stay, the service and friendliness of the proprietors further enhanced this on arrival and the breakfast was fabulous!   The rooms were clean, great en-suite facilities, fantastic breakfast and all with a great service and very low cost.

“A most relaxing stay”

Very comfortable room with a very well-appointed en-suite bathroom with shower and bath. Bedroom was quite small and it was very comfortable. Close to Oakham town centre and also quiet. Breakfasts were excellent, including homemade bread, freshly squeezed orange juice, a wide choice of cooked breakfast and various cereals, and yoghurts. Our hosts, Carol and Paul, were most accommodating when we requested early breakfasts. We would definitely stay there again.

Short 3 night stay whilst fishing. Double bed room very comfortable, spotlessly clean and a well maintained bathroom with bath and shower. Breakfast served in a conservatory overlooking the back garden.

“Outstanding and very welcoming family run B&B”

I had a very welcoming stay and felt at home as soon as I met the very friendly couple who run Kirkee they couldn’t have been any more helpful than they were and even offered to give me a lift into Oakham for a job interview. I would highly recommend Kirkee to anyone planning to stay overnight in Oakham. Very clean very fresh and excellent breakfast. Many thanks.

Likes:  All of the above.

Dislikes:  No

“One of the best we have ever stayed in!”

After a friendly welcome we were given clear information about breakfast -where, when and what – and then shown up to our room. The room was well furnished, spotless with a very comfortable bed with crisp linen. Plenty of thick, fluffy towels in the bathroom. The room was quiet.

Likes:  The breakfast was superb. Excellent coffee, home made bread, marmalade and locally sourced bacon and sausage. The poached and scrambled eggs were an example of how to cook eggs properly!

Dislikes:  No!
