    « Perfectly adequate for an overnight stay »

    My partner and I met up with friends and we stayed here one Saturday night. My friend booked, so I can't comment on that process, but we paid £88 for bed and breakfast. It is quite hard to see from the road, but there is ample parking. Check in was quick. Our room was far too hard (23.5C!) but eventually we got it down to 20C by turning off the radiator and opening the windows. I appreciate it is winter, but this did seem a bit too warm. The bed was comfy and the shower had excellent pressure and a reliable temperature. I liked the inclusion of hot chocolate sachets by the kettle, but the tea bags (PG Tips, in individual envelopes) tasted odd. We spent the day and evening in Melton Mowbray and returned to the hotel for a final drink before bed. I don't understand why establishments serve tea in metal teapots with metal handles - it was too hot to pick up comfortably and by the time I'd drunk one cup and wanted to refill the teapot with the additional hot water provided, that pot was also still far too hot. A little thing, but annoying. Breakfast was a continental style buffet (croissants, cheese and meat, cereal, yogurt, fruit). You could ask for the croissants to be warmed, but they were microwaved rather then grilled so were a bit floppy. The hot breakfast (ordered once seated) was plentiful and tasty. All four of us ordered tea, which came in one (metal) tea pot. Just holding enough for one (small) cup each, we kept ordering more tea. It would be better if there were bigger tea pots available, or providing smaller individual-serve ones like the one I had had in the bar the previous evening. The hotel was decorated for Christmas, which was tastefully done, although the decorations did take up rather a lot of precious room on the tables! Overall, we had an enjoyable stay. The hotel is clean, with friendly staff, and I would stay here again.

    « Great Hotel but slightly disappointing food »

    We stayed on a Sunday night on a package deal. When we arrived the directions to the car park were not easy to see as it was dark. There was no one on reception and even after ringing the service bell we still had to wait some time before we could check in, The room was quite comfortable but initially quite cold for my wife, as no heating had been turned on. Dinner was a bit of a disappointment as the Sunday evening menu was somewhat limited and we did not fancy eating a selection of sandwiches that was offered on the menu. One of the steaks that we had was good and the other was terrible, and the Brie starter was disappointing as well. The breakfast was somewhat limited as well leading to our overall disappointment with the food offered by the hotel. Having said that the staff were friendly and the views over the valley were lovely.

    « Execellent Service / Location, not quite 5 star for me »

    I picked this hotel due to its location and reviews on tripadvisor. we booked an executive room in the annex just off the reception area for 2 nights. The room was nice and large, good amenities and clean. The breakfast was great and as we had an early start the next day they arranged a continental tray to be delivered to the room which was a nice touch indeed! Car park was good and very secure. The only reason I have not given this a 5 star rating is because of the constant humming noise throughout the night. I think it may of been the boiler or something in the annex switching on and off..but it was extremely loud and a bit annoying. the only reason we did not complain is we were there for a wedding and well lots of drinking involved so had no problem getting to sleep only when we woke up :) The bar is gorgeous, would def recommend having a few drinks there. the breakfast was ok, had the full English and it was just ok. What makes this place is the people who run it...great staff..just disappointed I could not give it a 5 star!!!

    « A lovely welcoming place to stay. »

    We spent two nights here, dinner, b&b. Everything about the hotel is welcoming, staff, atmosphere, gardens. As we have a dog we often struggle to find a hotel who will allow him in the entire place (with the exception of the restaurant of course). A table was set up in the bar for us for dinner and breakfast. The room was lovely and warm, but radiators controllable so we could set as we wanted. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. Anything they couldn't answer immediately they went off and found the person who could. Will definitely being staying there again. Hopefully quite soon. All in all, good value for money, lovely staff, food and surrounding.

    « Lovely weekend break »

    Stayed with about 20 others attending a local wedding for 2 nights. A very comfortable bedroom and bathroom, excellent English breakfast and the friendliest staff you will ever meet - the Belvoir beer wasn't bad either. The gardens are well kept and nicely laid out and there was plenty of off road parking in a secure area. The area is nice and quiet so a good nights sleep is guaranteed.

    « Old Style and very Inviting Hotel »

    We met friends at this hotel and bought the Bed, Breakfast and Evening Meal deal so we could all be together and not worry about finding and getting to and from a restaurant in Melton. This turned out to be a great plan as not only was the food very good and fantastic value for money but the whole evening was very pleasant with friendly staff making the time even better. The rooms are old styled but that means they have proper heavy curtains, decent carpet and plush chairs all in various colours, not blank, white and plane like most modern hotels. The bathroom was very nice with a huge bath thought the water takes a while to get hot. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough to help and the owners are usually about somewhere making sure things are running smoothly. We thoroughly recommend this hotel

    « A great place to stay »

    Spent 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast and couldn't fault this place. The rooms are lovely and cosy. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and very accommodating. As a group of friends with different expectations we were not disappointed. The one thing that strikes you is how happy the staff are from the top down. Would highly recommend this place. Well done.

    « Lovely Hotel, Great Stay, First Class Food and Really Good Service, »

    Traditional hotel, country decor, beautiful gardens, comfy bed and spotless room and bathroom. Staff are amazing, friendly, helpful, interested in you and your trip and the meals were outstanding. Wonderful evening meals, recommended! Fantastic weekend with friends would recommend and would definitely go back.

    « A hidden gem »

    The room was immaculate, and lovely and warm, and such a comfy bed. The staff were very pleasant, the food was excellent. Extremely good value for money. Thank you so much, see you again next June, with friends I hope!

    « Dated but comfortable. Very friendly service. Great garden and views. »

    We were in a party of nineteen, all of whom had booked this hotel on the recommendation of the party organiser. Bearing in mind that Melton is a small rural market town, this hotel was much better than we expected. We were greeted with a genuinely friendly smile, a tour round the place, and an explanation of the various facilities. One quirk is that there are no resident staff, so the main entrance is locked after 11:30 pm (though your room key will get you in), and there is no access at all to the car park after that time. This didn't cause anyone any problems as far as I know. Our room (No 8) was a bit dated in appearance but extremely comfortable, with absolutely everything you need for a short stay (two nights in our case), and a fantastic view over the Leicestershire wolds. Breakfasts were excellent, particularly the Full English - as you might expect in area famed for its pork. (And the honey is produced at the hotel from their own bees. I believe they also keep quail!) We only ate one evening meal there - a major dinner for the whole party of 19 - and it was passably good, but not fine dining. The garden has the same superb views as our bedroom did, and is a great place for a quick morning blowing away of the cobwebs - and there are plenty of good walks along the river valley onto which it backs. Definitely the main plus point, though, is the really friendly and helpful atmosphere around the place - the staff were absolutely brilliant.

    « Nice staff , Old hotel »

    A bit of Fauwlty Towers ........... Nice attentive family but the rooms although big and quiet are a real mis match , not modern and decor very mis match Food excellent and as good as any fine restaurant

    « Excellent hotel »

    A really excellent hotel that provided a warm welcome, outstanding food and really relaxing surroundings. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and the hotel exceeded our expectations in all areas.

    « My first trip to Leicester »

    The primary purpose of my visit was to see the Richard III: Dynasty Death & Discovery. The reservation was made on my behalf by friends who'd accompanied me to Leicester. A lovely and quaint hotel on the outskirts of Melton Mowbray

    « Terrible Reservation Staff Member »

    Terrible trouble making an addition to the booking, with the reservations lady tutting and telling me I had done the form all wrong online. I hadn't booked online, I had booked directly with the hotel and she told me I hadn't!! Rude and obstructive.

    « All round great place to stay »

    I stay here quite regularly when I am away with work and I have to say they never fail to give outstanding service. The team are pleasant professional and so helpful. Food is great and I'm usually spoilt for choice. I can't say anything negative about this hotel and I will continue to enjoy their great service hopefully for a long time to come

    « A really nice place to stay »

    We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay in one of the Superior Rooms. This is a family run Hotel with the family in residence - including school age children, dogs and pet quails.We had booked half board and found the breakfasts and 3 course dinners excellent. The menu is unashamably English and all the better for being so. Potrion sizes were generous. The whole Hotel is clean and well decorated. However, we had a constant feeling of it being yester-year, maybe 20 to 30 years ago and were left with the feeling that some modernisation must be on the cards soon. The staff were, without exception, friendly and very helpful. Security is good, the Carpark being gated at night. As an added bonus a 20 minute bus service to Melton Mowbray, Leicester or Grantham stops a few yards from the entrance. All in all this is a very good Hotel which we will be happy to return to.

    « Lovely place to stay »

    We could not fault our stay. From the moment we arrived to when we left there is nothing at all I could mark them down on. Breakfast and dinner was excellent and the deal through the Best Western website was better than on or Trivago. I was surprised all of the standard and superior rooms were dog friendly but we were offered and paid a nominal fee for an upgrade to the annexe which was lovely. I think the car park could be better signed as us and at least another 3 cars within the space of 10 minutes drove down the lane beside the hotel. All in all would definitely and would stay again if in the area.

    « Nice hotel »

    I stopped here with family as we were going to a wedding locally. Comfortable and very clean but getting a little tired with the decor. Rooms were a good size. Bathroom needed updating. Bar area and garden lovely and staff friendly and helpful.

    « Welcoming, accomodating, friendly and homely - great place to stay »

    We stayed one night in two rooms, accommodating four adults, one child, and two dogs. We originally booked two standard rooms on a deal with Expedia and I'd called ahead to checked we were ok with the dogs and an extra bed. On arrival they told me a standard room would be tight and had upgraded to a superior for no extra cost. The rooms were clean and comfortable - the childs bed was a little hard to sleep on but didn't cause any problems. We were welcomed warmly, and the staff friendly and helpful. The dogs were welcome anywhere in the hotel besides the restaurant including the gardens and large area to the rear of the property. Breakfast was good and the staff had planned a space specifically for our group which was a nice touch. The small local town is just a few minutes down the road and there are some nice walks down by the canal and in the country park that is a few minutes further out of town. We really enjoyed our short stay and would recommend the hotel.

    « Very comfortable stay and hotel staff were superb »

    Stayed for 3 nights last week and had a very relaxing and comfortable stay. A very home-from-home experience. Room was very clean and spacious. Lots of room to unpack stuff much so, I'd unknowingly left an ipad, glasses, bag and headphones in a drawer. The staff went completely out of their way to get these items back to me within 24 hours. Hugely appreciated!

    « Dog Friendly....And Fantastic!! »

    Stayed two nights and we just loved the whole time we spent here. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners even offering to look after our very spoilt cocker spaniel so we could eat in the restaurant. However, we opted for dinner in the bar as I never like to put on people and it was absolutely fabulous. The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection, I am to of the lasagne was delicious by my husband, service was first class and we had a super evening. The bedroom was very well appointed and we slept very well. Breakfast was again another enjoyable meal with a full English breakfast served piping hot to the queuing...such a relief!! The hotel has superb views and we had a lovely walk down to the river. The gardens are delightful and very well cared for. You could not ask for a better hotel in the area...don't delay.....BOOK!

    « Melton Mowbray Experience »

    Our first visit to this wonderful hotel the views are stunning the food is excellent as is the service its family run and the proprietor Jenni is so welcoming nothing is too much trouble We upgraded to a four poster, room 3 , the bed was amazing , we had a step to climb into it we had the best nights sleep ever it felt like we were in a stately home the decor is very nice spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated We look forward to our next visit

    « The icing on the cake!! »

    We stayed for two nights at this hotel, along with 27 of our close family and friends, as our son was getting married in Melton Mowbray. What a fantastic weekend we all had! Vicky (the manager) was incredibly helpful, helping us arrange a meal for everyone on the eve of the wedding in a private dining room. The food was excellent and we were able to relax with our friends and enjoy the hotel's lovely lounges and beautiful gardens. The wedding was wonderful - but everyone in our party agreed that the atmosphere and facilities at the Sysonby Knoll, were the icing on the cake! Thank you to the friendly and helpful staff who helped make our weekend really special.

    « Matra Car Club agm weekend »

    Super hotel with private conference/ dining room for our meeting. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good food, individually cooked breakfast. Overall excellent! You can't go wrong! Dog friendly on top.

    « Home from home »

    This hotel is friendly and full of life. We have been staying at this hotel for years,the staff greet you like a long lost friend . The food is superb and the choices good. The bedrooms are spacious ,clean and comfy. It is also a dog friendly hotel.

    « Friendly good value hotel »

    A very pleasantly situated hotel, on the edge of town, backing on to open countryside. Rooms were spacious and clean, a nice touch was the USB charger points. Also free Wi-Fi. Their DB&B rates are good value, with a good choice of menu and a reasonably priced wine list. Service was on the whole good, but let down by breakfast on the last day. We sat at our table for fifteen minutes without our order being taken and the situation was only resolved when I went to find a waitress. The food took a further 25 minutes to arrive.

    « one night stopover »

    We booked here as a base for attending a wedding on a nearby farm. Staff were very helpful in ensuring we understood the procedure for entering the hotel after hours . Good breakfast in an area overlooking the glorious garden and further country views. Secure locked car park comfortable room , very light and bright Good bathroom with large hand and body wash, lotion etc.

    « Lovely Hotel - best in Melton by far »

    We needed a room for a quick family visit to Melton. We had no expectation that the hotel would be this good, we usually stay in 4* plus. The staff were lovely, the food very good and the room very comfortable and I would highly recommend the hotel.

    « Booked for two nights, stayed for three! »

    We booked a two night DB&B stay at this local hotel to 'ease the pain' of our local house move: we were glad we did! Although we had lived near Melton Mowbray for some years, we had overlooked this hotel and restaurant until now. But staying here was a good decision: the hotel is on the edge of the town, has rural views, welcoming and efficient staff and a good restaurant. Perhaps you might expect nice meals in "The Rural Capital of Food" that Melton Mowbray claims to be. We found the daily menu varied with a good rage of traditional English and other dishes, all well cooked, generously portioned and well presented. Vegetarians were well catered for in unusually creative ways! We stayed in Room 8, a quiet twin room with rural aspect. The room was traditionally styled, clean and comfortable. We had no quibbles or complaints to make and feel we had good value for money.

    « Relaxing family run hotel »

    This is a very fine hotel where the employees are very helpful. We had a lovely stay in our four-poster bed room, which had a great bath/shower combo room as well. Upon arrival my wife needed some rice, for which we was going to head into town for, but the staff very kindly arranged some rice for her very promptly. The fourposter bed was massive and incredibly comfortable - we mostly chose Melton as as a stop-over place before heading back to southern england, it was a really great choice in hotel as it was very much a relaxing place to stay before a long drive home. The food we had was brilliant and the young lady doing the waiting couldn't be more helpful, she was good enough to bring our meal/drinks to the garden where we enjoyed the birds singing and the cool, calm air of the evening. It was incredbly relaxing. The breakfast was superb, the staff again, really great. Overall I would stay here again if in the location, it is a great hotel where the staff/owners are passionate about giving a really good service.

    « Lovely »

    Stayed here for 1 night. Really liked the family room that we had. My children had bunk beds in an adjoining room to our room. Our Room was really clean and spacious. Good variety of breakfast, our waitress was friendly. Checking out the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again

    « Quaint »

    Lovely grounds and exterior. The car park is limited. Very secure with locked gates after 11pm. Old fashioned inside including food. Service doesn't seem to be the top priority - regulars get lots of chats whilst visitors have to wait for drinks. There was poor communication regarding getting the heating to work in our room.

    « Place stay in Melton Mowbray »

    Super family owned Hotel. The place to stay when in Melton Mowbray. I always receive a great welcome from very helpful and friendly staff. Bar stocked with amongst other things, ales from nearby Belvoir Brewery. Great food from daily menu or off the a la Carte. Well maintained gardens with lovely view over the flood plain. Well recommended.

    « Good food in the hotel restaurant »

    The food in the hotel restaurant is excellent. If anything the portions are almost too large. Very helpful staff. Rooms are on the small side but perfectly adequate. The major drawback is the somewhat convaluted series of hallways one must go through to reach one's room. Many stairs and doors make this hotel not a good choice for anyone with mobility issues. For those who can handle stairs this hotel is an excellent choice.

    « Tired »

    Was in a wing near the front of the building. It was either badly built or I stayed on a day of unusual seismic activity; the whole structure vibrated when doors were closed or a vehicle drove by. I have been in more sturdy Wendy houses. Room was adequate but no more. Bathroom dated. Breakfast was not included

    « Lovely Overnight Stay »

    Overnight Saturday stay, booked for dinner, bed & breakfast via Best Western website. Check in was efficient, but none too welcoming. Our standard double room was fine, very clean, comfy bed. No aircon. Small flatscreen TV, tea/coffee, free Wifi. Compact en suite bathroom with large bath, decent shower, dated decor, lovely towels. The bar area is comfortable and nicely furnished and decorated and overlooks the well maintained garden. The Restaurant is nice and is popular with non-residents. We soon understood why. Our included 3 course a la carte menu meal was excellent. We had the lamb shank, which was as good as any I have ever tasted. Service was good. Wine was reasonably priced (from £14 bottle). Breakfast was cooked to oredr and again very good.The food here is certainly the crowning glory of this place. It was very quiet and peaceful, conducive to a restful stay. A little over priced at almost £150 for DBB, but a change from the chain Hotels. Would certainly return.

    « Great service »

    The hotel is easy to find, on the outskirts of the town. A three night break in a single room. Good food, lovely staff. Will return. The age of the building means it has lots of little steps so watch your feet to avoid a trip.

    « Anniversary meal »

    A very nice looking hotel but we only visited the restaurant. Tuesday night so it was very quiet and service was good. Pleasant young ladies and decent food. Would go again. The desert was Strawberry and Kiwi almond meringue roulade, worth the visit ha ha

    « Great hotel, a very pleasant stay. »

    From check in to check out, we had great service during our 3 night stay at the Sysonby Knoll. I picked this hotel, on behalf of others, for an family get together. We were not disappointed. We paid a reasonable rate for superior rooms, through the hotels own website. Check-in was friendly and efficient, shown to our rooms, which were clean, well presented and spacious. Ate in the hotel on our first night and had a few drinks there too enjoying the late evening sunshine in the beautiful gardens. The food was of a good standard and they went to the trouble of substituting a new main on the table d'hote, when one was all gone Beds were comfy and a good night sleep was had. Each morning, breakfast was cooked to order with cereal, yoghurt, fruit, some pastries, cheese and ham all available buffet style. Refills of toast, tea, coffee, butter etc at the table was always forth coming. One of the real plus factors about the hotel is the setting, with beautiful gardens ( with games) and a field running down to the river. The other major plus is the staff who were genuinely friendly and responsive to our requirements. I got fresh milk for our room and they split the bill for our meal between our various party members without asking. If I had to find fault. The hotel is too warm for me - that's personal taste and the bedroom features opening windows. The shower wasn't very powerful - that saves water and it was simple to operate. I would have liked black pudding and mushrooms on the breakfast menu and maybe kippers or smoked salmon - I reckon these would have been provisioned had I made a special request but I wasn't that bothered. Thanks all at the Sysonby Knoll.

    « One night break »

    Thoroughly enjoyed our one night break here, Lovely views from the charming garden area and restaurant. We had superior double room which was very comfy and clean. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Dinner was nicely presented and tasty - good, unobtrusive service also. There is also a specials menu. Breakfast included and again cannot find any fault. Not far from Melton Mowbray and plenty of places to visit if staying longer.

    « Very pleasant stay in rural Melton Mowbray »

    I stayed for 4 nights at the Sysonby Knoll and I enjoyed my stay very much. Right from the time of making the reservation I had a good feeling about the hotel given the friendly,efficient and accommodating service on the phone and I was not disappointed. The house is very well run, competent and friendly, courteous staff. Nothing is too much trouble. I stayed in room 10 which is nicely decorated and spacious. Everything I was looking for was fulfilled, good service, clean room, good bed, hot water, good breakfast. The meals were very good too. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful, I was lucky enough that the weather was good and could sit in the beautiful well maintained garden, enjoying the countryside. The market town is a leisurely stroll from the hotel, and in case of need the taxi service is excellent. I can only recommend the hotel and will not hesitate to return. A big thank you to the whole team.

    « Well-run hotel »

    I stayed for one night on a Saturday while travelling on a short touring holiday. Booked into an executive room which is in a separate annexe opposite the main building. The room was large and included a separate seating area with a small table and two chairs. The bathroom was also a good size - only negative point is that there was a shower curtain rather than a screen. I ate in the restaurant which was very busy. Despite being busy the service was prompt and efficient. The meal was good honest fare and I enjoyed it very much. The staff were welcoming and friendly and gave the hotel a feeling of somewhere that is run with care, passion and enthusiasm. For that I am happy to award 5 stars

    « Country house style with good food and charming gardens »

    Stayed here for one night and dined in. The hotel is an extended country home, outside town and with charming gardens and river/countryside views. The beds were comfortable, and the public rooms are spacious and relaxing. The food was excellent and the staff very pleasant and helpful.

    « Relaxing location near centre »

    Hidden away behind some house, with an obscure entrance that I missed! Superb views of the river and farmland to the rear. A little oasis of calm in a busy world Staff couldn't do enough either, especially as I was only staying one night Rooms all one would expect

    « Just ok »

    Stayed for one night on business. Hotel was pleasant enough and staff pretty friendly. Rooms are OK quite roomy and temperature was good. Only had breakfast which was ok service wasn't great. Wifi albeit free was dire with very poor signal and constantly crashing. For what I paid which was over £100 it was poor value for money.

    « Brilliant stopover »

    Used this hotel for an overnight stay when attending our son's wedding and was immediately very impressed by friendly and helpful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble, Room was spotlessly clean and bed was very comfortable. Lovely breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone :)

    « Lovely, relaxing & quiet! »

    Spent 3 nights here on a Rail Discoveries package. Had a lovely clean and quiet room overlooking the garden. Could hear and watch the goldfinches whilst laying on my bed! Food excellent and a decently priced selection of single malts in the bar. It also produces it's own honey available at breakfast. Service by local staff excellent. Highly recommended establishment.

    « Birthday treat »

    Took my partner away for his birthday, smashing hotel, super comfy bed, I am not very tall could of done with some steps to climb in...;-) Food was excellent as was the service. Nice glass of wine in the garden with nothing but bird song to hear wonderful.

    « Perfect »

    We ( Wife 36, Me 40, son 5 ) travelled from Bristol to Woburn Safari Park early morning and then wanted to go to the National Space Centre in Leicester the following day, meaning an overnight stay preferably with a short drive the next morning. I try and book a Best Western whenever possible. normally they have a bit more character than a Premier Inn and usually for a similar price! This Hotel was on the verge of a short drive to our next destination (30 minutes) but it was the closest Best Western and we are very glad we choose it for a stay. It was Bank Holiday weekend and the Kitchen was not open on the Monday, they phoned and asked if this was ok an hour after our online booking. This was followed by another call asking if it was ok that our son had his own room separated by a bathroom with a lockable front door! The Joy of not having to all go to bed at 8pm!, of course this was ok and again great communication. Friendly Staff, shown to room, remembered our names in the morning, a delightful breakfast with a view over a private garden. As I find most Best Westerns this was a bargain for £89!!!

    « Quality hotel and restaurant »

    1st time I have stayed at the Sysonby Knoll and I will definitely stay again the net time I am in the area. Very pleasant staff and service from people who actually like working there (unlike a lot of places I stay at). Also good food in the restaurant, comfortable rooms and very clean.

    « A real gem »

    Just returned from a three night stay at the hotel, how can I explain it in one word. PERFECT. We have stayed there before, and we were made as welcome as ever, even the dog!! We had the superior twin room on the ground floor which was very convenient and quiet, it was kept spotless The meals both breakfasts and evening meals were first class and nothing was too much trouble. I would strongly recommend the hotel and staff.

    « Nice hotel and very pleasant and helpful staff »

    Stayed Thursday - Sunday on B&B + Dinner basis. Our twin room was well equipped including Wifi but the bathroom was rather cramped. The food was good and the menu varied day-to-day. We enjoyed our stay and the only negative aspect was that guests in in adjacent room to ours didn't use their shower - they used their bath - and so we found no hot water once. The management were most apologetic. We twigged what was happening and so made sure we used our shower before they ran their baths. All-in-all we enjoyed our few days at Sysonby Knoll.

    « Great hotel »

    Found this hotel, never stayed there before & was very pleased with selection. Service friendly, staff could do enough for you, Even got showed to room! Food excellent, very well presented, piping hot, good portions. Excellent find Room - very clean, good size

    « A lovley hotel with excellent staff »

    Not often I get to this part of the country, However I was very impressed when arriving at the hotel & my delight was heightened when greeted by the wonderfully friendly & helpful staff. The room was large, lovely, clean and very well equipped. I would instantly recommend a stay here to anyone in the area for any reason. G

    « Great short break »

    We visited for 2 nights as a birthday treat for my husband. The hotel is spotlessly clean and we were given a room upgrade to a very large bedroom with 4 poster bed. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we were really impressed that we didn't have to keep giving them our name or room number, and didn't have to sign for meals and drinks; they just recognised their guests. The food was really good and piping hot, with plenty of choice. On the second evening I asked if I could have new potatoes with my scampi rather than chips, and even though they were not on the menu at all that evening, the chef cooked some specially. So nice, also, to be served at the table with the cooked breakfast ordered, hot drinks and toast. The bar/lounge areas are very comfortable to enjoy a drink before or after your meal. Great views over the river Eye from the restaurant too. The only downside to our room was the shower which had very little water pressure. Altogether a great visit and I would definitely stay here again

    « Perfect choice »

    We just needed an overnight stay to attend a birthday party. We didn't know this hotel but it was in the right location and the reviews were good. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The room was fantastic, as was the breakfast and they kindly arranged our taxi to and from the venue.

    « Short Break »

    This was our first visit to Melton and the hotel we picked was first class. Staff were friendly and the room was excellent. Food was very good. Will definitely be returning when the weather is better.

    « Little gem »

    Great out of town hotel. Spotlessly clean, friendly efficient staff, fabulous food, varied menu, good value, comfortable well appointed rooms. All things you expect from a hotel but often don't get. Fabulous gardens running down to the river. The hotel has evolved over time with various wings and annexes being added. We had a lovely room overlooking the garden. I don't know what the newer rooms are like.

    Lovely hotel in a great setting overlooking the river. Particularly enjoyed the good quality ingredients of the cooked breakfast. The restaurant was popular with locals and the food was freshly cooked to order.

    « Really pleasant and relaxing stay »

    I thoroughly recommend this hotel. We stayed for 1 weekend night whilst we were visiting the area. We booked a 4-poster room (room3) which was very nice, really spacious and spotlessly clean. It had a nice view over the garden and was extremely quiet. The hotel staff were really friendly and the breakfast was good with a nice dining area downstairs looking over the garden. Ample parking, easy to find. Will stay again. Thanks.

    « great value hotel »

    We just had a weekend stay at this wonderful hotel which is 15 walk from the town. The hotel staff and management could not have been more helpful and the breakfast and meal we had on valentines was very good value for money. On arriving we were given a free upgrade to a better room which was very nice of the hotel. If we are ever in the region again would stay here again no problem many thanks to the staff had a lovely break

    « We was not expecting that...!!! WOW »

    My partner treated me to a gorgeous night away for Valentines, to stay at this most hidden gem was a real find... The four poster bed was stunning....TV excellent size, bedroom & bathroom very roomy with a very professional touches & finishes.. They knew who my partner was straight away without having to give his name, the most friendliest attentive staff ever.. Stunning hotel with stunning views.. most amazing food ever and we love our food and it has to and was most certainly the best we have had. Sue who was the chef on that evening apparently has worked there 20 years and it shows... Flawless stay from start to finish with the cleanest scrummy breakfast ever, (by clean i mean not a trace of oil on the plate..) we are definitely going back for more.. :) more than ***** service at affordable prices..!!!

    « Faultless »

    We have stayed in many hotels over the years, but this hotel surpasses all of them. I had enquired prior to booking about the dog policy and was told dogs are most welcome, and they most certainly are. We couldn't eat in the restaurant with the dog which is understandable, but were allowed to eat in the bar area which was just as nice as the restaurant. From the onset we were made most welcome, even our dog was made to feel at home. The hotel was immaculate, yes it is in amongst a row of houses and on a main road, but you would never know it once you are in the hotel, and in the grounds of the hotel, there is no noise and you are not overlooked by the houses. The grounds are lovely, we were lucky as it wasn't raining so were able to go out into the grounds and down to the river (in the summer it must be even lovelier). All of the staff are extremely friendly. ( especially Vicky and Holly)and all went out of their way to make us welcome. We were there over the Valentine weekend so took advantage of the Valentine meal which was available, the food was outstanding. Our room was a superior and had a huge and absolutely spotless, there was even a towel just for the dog (something quite trivial to some people but to those of us with dogs this was a very thoughtful touch). Whilst this is a Best Western hotel it is also family run- maybe that's why it is so friendly. We will definitely be returning to this hotel again and would definitely recommend it.

    « AMZING!!!! »

    This is such a lovely hotel!! The staff can't do enough for you! There sooo lovely! And the food!!!! Omg!! It is AMAZING!!!! The rooms are very clean! The beds are comfy, it's exactly what you need after you've had a hard day at work to come back to a very homely warming hotel with delicious food!

    « Was not expecting that ! »

    I came here for one night for a trip into Melton Mowbray. My friend had told the reception to expect me. Kim greeted me and knew who I was before I even said my name ! Kim has to be one of the friendliest hotel staff I've met in a long time. She was at hand for all our queries, and helped us a lot. The hotel itself is in a beautiful setting (if only the British rain had stayed away) even though it's situated on a main road. The rooms were lovely and quaint, and spotless, and the food for dinner and breakfast hit the spot ! All in all, a great little find. Thanks !

    « Lovely hotel A*** »

    Fantastic find. Was recommended by a friend and this place did not disappoint. Really welcoming staff and a really big comfy room. Would recommend to anyone needing to stay in the area and will definitely use again. Can't wait to go back! :-)

    « Good enough »

    The hotel was adequate and the staff were very pleasant - the hotel itself is a little misleading, as the photos give an impression of a rural location which it is not (it is on a main road in a large town). The entire hotel could do with a little modernisation etc. Don't get me wrong, its not a 'bad' hotel, it just didn't 'wow' me, and for the price it really should have, given the competition.

    « Must Visit Hotel & Restaurant »

    We eat out a lot & mostly visit luxury hotels where a meal for two averages at £60/80 so Sunday lunch at the Sysonby Knoll was superb for many reasons. Firstly we received a very warm welcome & were soon sitting down in a relaxing lounge with a good coffee. Secondly when our table was ready we were taken through by a lovely friendly waitress to a delightful room with views over open countryside & thirdly the food that followed was totally faultless. The service was also excellent & even with more coffees after the meal the total bill was under £40 all in for two people! So the 3 course meal in lovely surroundings could not be faulted, it was very enjoyable & really good value, needless to say we will be going back very soon!

    « Christmas dinner »

    Went for an anniversary meal here as we had our wedding reception at the hotel. Had the Christmas dinner. Couldn't fault it. Very tasty and we'll presented. Always a pleasure to visit and the food excellent.

    « Lovely little find »

    I went with the family including my little son. Staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you. Food was lovely and despite the place being packed on the Friday night in question we did not have to wait long. Prices very reasonable. Well worth a visit.

    « Comfortable and Relaxing »

    The Sysonby Knoll Hotel is within walking distance of Melton Mowbray town centre and offers all of the amenities associated with a first class hotel, from the peaceful and luxurious rooms to the excellent dining experience. The hotel is set in its own private garden with far reaching views which can be seen from the dining room. The bar area and reception are comfortably laid out with easy chairs and sofas, offering a wide range of refreshments by the delightful and polite staff. The car park is extensive and has locked gates from late night to early morning making your vehicle secure. The hotel caters for disabled with ground floor rooms. Although we visited as a couple, children and pets were also welcome.

    « lovely hotel »

    What a wonderful stay, from the time we arrived to the time we left we were made most welcome. Even the dog had his own towel waiting for him in the room, a very nice thought. The meals were first class and the restaurant was lovely overlooking the gardens and the river. Our room was kept spotless, and it was lovely to see the quall chicks. With the Victorian fayre being on last weekend it was one of the nicest weekends we have spent for a long time.

    « Very pleasant hotel with friendly and helpful staff. »

    Staff were very helpful and friendly in both the hotel and the restaurant. The room was clean and had everything I needed. Dinner was very good and the portions were enormous. Breakfast was also very good.

    « Hidden gem - excellent service and a great dining experience »

    This is a lovely hotel with exceptionally friendly & attentive service. Dinner was excellent & we enjoyed the relaxing drink in the bar beforehand - great idea to take our food order here. We were a bit disappointed with the small beds & quality of duvets which weren't very comfortable, but couldn't fault anything else.

    « Group of ex work colleagues »

    Every aspect excellent. 7 of us stayed for 2/3 nights. They are all ex senior management. We were all very happy with the rooms, service, restaurant both evening meal and breakfast. Good inexpensive wine list. Bar sells local real ale. Very friendly efficient staff

    « Very friendly staff, great food »

    We stayed for a Saturday night on the dinner, B&B rate. The staff were so welcoming and friendly. Our bed was a touch on the small side but the room and bathroom were clean, comfortable and quiet. Dinner was good, I had the burger with bacon and brie - the world's supply of brie!! As I was leaving at 6am the next day they left me a continental breakfast on a tray and a mini fridge to keep the milk and yogurt cold. The wifi was quick. Would stay there again if in the area.

    « Very surprised in view of good trip advisor reviews »

    Stayed at this hotel for one night to attend wedding nearby. We chose this hotel because it had very good trip advisor reviews. I am afraid we were very disappointed. Our ground floor room, which we requested, was entered by leaving reception, going past the car entrance, through a pair of electrified gates and walking through a rather scruffy courtyard, to a door at the far end of the building, all in the open air. It all looked rather unkempt, and unwelcoming, with a large grey brick being used as a doorstop. The room was very tired and dated, with stand alone furniture and dull lighting. It was clean but certainly poorly furnished and reminiscent of a much lower rate do and cheaper hotel. The bed was not only hard and uncomfortable, it was the smallest double bed of just 4 foot 6 inches and so an comfortable night ensued with barely room for two average sized people. This is most unexpected these days and certainly not in a room costing £120 per night (incl breakfast). The bathroom was also dated and although there were plentiful bath towels, there were no hand towels. On a positive note, the staff were, on the whole, friendly and the gardens looked attractive. The 'individually cooked' breakfast was OK, but certainly nothing special, and the fruit buffet consisted of just tinned grapefruit and prunes, and there was just one croissant left. I am really sorry to have to write in this manner as I would really liked to have written a good review of a privately owned hotel, but unfortunately it was not 'up to scratch' and we were really pleased we only had to stay one night.

    « Lovely party »

    We have just spent a Saturday night here with the dinner bed and breakfast rates for a family party to celebrate my daughter.s 21st. The staff were very friendly and welcoming especially on the desk. We had a variety of rooms ranging from the executive to the standard and they were all of a very high standard with comfortable beds and top class bathrooms.The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the food was excellent. It is also within walking distance of the town centre.This was our second stay here and again we were not disappointed and would thoroughly recommend this hotel if youa re in the area.

    « Comfortable, Semi Rural Hotel »

    Lovely gardens at back,comfy beds, good shower and excellent breakfast. Quiet despite proximity to road. Really enjoyed our stay.Watch out for the low arch leading to the car park if you have bikes on the roof !

    « Home from home! »

    It's the staff that make this hotel, along with comfortable rooms & excellent food. I have stayed here on many occasions over the last 2 years and have always received such a warm welcome from Jenny, Vicky, Peter & the team. Feels like a home from home more than a hotel. The four poster rooms are a special treat & offer great value and the rooms in the annexe are especially spacious. In all rooms the wifi is superb, beds are comfy, TVs are a good size and room service is always quick & piping hot! The daily specials on the menu ensure there is always great choice for evening meals, the food really is first class, lovely to dine in the restaurant & also in the gardens in the Summer! Good breakfasts too. With secure parking. Currently being modernised & now part of Best Western chain but thankfully not losing it's charm...Very rare to find service as good as this. Thank you Sysonby team, see you again soon!

    « Tranquil location, great food and excellent staff! »

    The decor may be a little old for people in favour of a more modern setting but it adds to the whole cosy and relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are what you'd expect at a 3 star hotel and are clean and well maintained. The grounds are lovely. I have stayed there on four occasions in the last month on business. I have not gotten tired of the view from the dining room. Not spectacular but lovely and serene. The food is excellent. A decent selection of tasty meals on the a la carte but the specials are indeed special. The kitchen staff, like all the staff here, are friendly and very accommodating. Having been impressed with the food I decided to chance my luck when saw swordfish steak on the special. Sailfish tend to be tough and chewy and a bit bland but they served it up with roasted soft red peppers and a sauce (I can't recall) with some sweet potato mash on the side and it was the best I have ever tasted. I have had fresh swordfish in the Caribbean and Marlin from the Indian ocean at places said to be great for seafood- but the Sysonby served up better. The staff at this family run hotel are top notch. Definitely recommend and I doubt there's a better Hotel in Melton Mowbray!

    « Good Hotel - She Just Got Off On The Wrong Foot »

    This is our second stay at this hotel. The first was 20 years ago when My wife and I stayed with our two young sons at the time. Mrs Booth, the owner and operator showed great kindness during our stay. My wife and I wanted to return for this reason as we were in the UK for Rugby World Cup. Prior to arriving at the hotel, I had emailed our time of arrival (7:00 to 8:00 pm ) and our wish to have dinner on our arrival. I received a reply back to stay no problem and the dining room closes at 8:30 pm. When we entered to dining room we were given bar menus and told to seat in the bar/lounge. We ordered from the bar menu, one plough man's lunch and a meat pie as well as a bottle of wine to drink in the interim. As we waited for our meal, the next customers were offered the full menu by a different member of staff and ordered roast lamb. Why were we not given that option? This made my wife and I feel like 2nd class citizens. We were hungry after a long day of travel and we are offered a bar menu in spite of advance notice. After 45 minutes waiting in the lounge for our dinner, we walked into the dining room to ask where our food was. We were told that the pie takes that long to bake. If that is the case it would make sense to make this know. We were still waiting while the customers who came after us were already eating their lamb roast. Apart from this opening incident, our stay was uneventful, rooms were comfortable, and the food good.

    « A great hotel »

    We stayed here for 2 days DBB in an executive room. The room was really lovely, the staff very nice and the meals were wonderful. Would definitely recommend this hotel. All in all we had a really nice time.

    « Excellent service »

    We stayed here as a family (2 adults, 3 teenagers and Granny) for a local wedding. We booked three rooms. Jenny and her team were fantastic at juggling the needs of various age groups and could not have done more to help us during our two night stay. Very good dinner, excellent breakfasts, clean rooms and great service. Thank you very much for your patience, good humour and making us so welcome.

    « Tired bedrooms, but clean enough »

    Stayed at the Sysonby Knoll Hotel in September 2015 for one night (business) and considered the rooms to be a little sparse (I was in a 'superior' which was very basic, bed and tiny table) and in need of some updating, particularly the bathroom. Breakfast was OK and the service that I received was friendly. This hotel keeps the rain off, but at £95 for the night it was expensive for what it is. Would probably look elsewhere next time.

    « Weekend Reunion »

    We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at this friendly hotel where the staff make you feel very much "at home". Rooms are clean and fresh and the food is great. There were 11 of us, nothing was too much trouble and at dinner we were all served on time - well done to the kitchen.
