Very clean, comfortable, and service from the staff excellent. There are only 16 bedrooms so it's best to pre-book. Beds very comfortable with high quality linen, also in the bathroom. Would have been nice to have a little fridge but there is complimentary tea coffee etc., iron & board, hairdryer, toiletries. Only ate breakfast there - big choice, could not... More

We stayed for 2 nights and were very comfortable. Good value, with quality choices for breakfast and very clean throughout. Well positioned if you are travelling on to North Wales. Safe on site car parking and a very picturesque setting. Will use again when visiting the area Thanks

I stayed at this hotel for two nights as I was completing an Upholstery course in Ellesmere, a perfect choice. Turning of the main road onto a gravelled driveway led to the impressive hotel and grounds. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful on arrival. The hotel itself was impeccably clean in all public areas along we the room I... More

On arrival, we are greeted by the beautiful grounds. the property itself is breathtaking. There is plenty of parking spaces. The staff are warm and friendly. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast is second to none. We didn't stay for dinner so can't comment on that. We always thoroughly enjoy our stay. We have been four...

Thank you so much for a wonderful review. The marquee was only opened March this year and has been a great success already. Glad you enjoyed the meals too. We try to use as much local produce as possible…...including the pork and chips! Best regards from the Old Rectory Wem team. More

The whole day was fantastic, The grounds and gardens are really well kept, the building is very well maintained. The room my wife and myself slept in was really very good, very clean and a comfortable bed. The wedding breakfast and our breakfast the next day were of a good standard. The staff could not be faulted, the marquee we... More

We spent a weekend at the hotel as we wanted to explore Shropshire, and for a central point to head out from it was good. The town of Wem has little going for it from a visitors point of view and we travelled into Shrewsbury to eat. The hotel is in a nice location, quiet off the main road, but... More

We have stayed here on three occasions in the past few years and have not been disappointed. Lovely staff, very welcoming. The restaurant is excellent. Extremely clean and very atmospheric. This is a favourite and a first choice when we want a couple of days away from the rat race.

We stayed here for the Easter long weekend and it suited our purposes well. It is a very clean and tidy place and all of the staff were friendly, curteous and helpful. The room we stayed in (10) was big enough to sleep in and the ensuite was functional. I'm a big lad 6'3", and the bed was not quite... More

stayed here for one night whilst on a business trip. The hotel is fine albeit a bit tired around the edges. Booked the standard double room but please note, it's small and getting to the other side of the bed is virtually impossible unless you don't eat for a living. Bathroom or shower room as was the case could do... More
