IMPORTANT PARKING INFORMATION FOR DURING 12th APRIL - 30th SEPTEMBER 2021
We are delighted to share that following the success of our Pop Up Beer Garden in 2020, to provide an outdoor space for our residents to enjoy we will be turning half of our on-site carpark into the Beer Garden again from 12th April 2021 until mid-September 2021. Due to this initiative, we will have limited parking at the hotel available (approximately 7 spaces) for hotel residents to use. These spaces will be on a first come first serve basis and guests will not be able to reserve spaces in advance of their stay. Please share this information will all members of your party who will be travelling by car to the hotel.
Please note as there will be reduced limited space for turning around, we will only be able to accommodate small cars and motorbikes in the hotel carpark – vans & larger cars will need to park at one of the alternative carparks listed below.
We encourage guests to call the Hotel on 01572 722844 when they first arrive in Oakham and then each time they approach the hotel during their stay to check if any spaces are available before entering the hotel carpark driveway – this should avoid the need to reverse back down the driveway should the limited carparking spaces already be full. Our 'private driveway' entrance is reached from South Street at the back of the Hotel. It is opposite the Fire Station between the Museum car park wooden fence and the large green hedge on the border with Cavell's store. If using a Sat Nav please enter postcode LE15 6HD it will bring you to the Fire Station.
There are however the following alternatives should our carpark be full – all of these carparks are free from 5.30pm until 8.30am Monday to Saturday, all-day Sunday & Bank Holidays:
South Street long carpark – postcode LE15 6BG - next door to the hotel
Brooke Road carpark - postcode LE15 6HH - 1 minute walk from the hotel
Burley Road carpark – postcode LE15 6DH - 5 minute's walk from the hotel
In addition, most of the on-street parking in the streets near the hotel is free of charge from 5pm to 9am Monday to Saturday, all-day Sunday & Bank Holidays.
Should you arrive during the chargeable times in the alternative carparks, please see Reception and we will give you voucher to display in your car window so you are not charged. You will have a 1/2 hr grace period from when you initially park to do this without incurring any charges.
