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

My husband and I stayed at the Old Rectory Hotel for a long weekend. Very easy to find and plenty of parking out front of the hotel. We were checked in by Natalie who made us feel very welcome and showed us to our room. Throughout our stay Natalie was very cheery and helpful. We stayed in the blue room... More

My husband and I stayed at The Old Rectory for one night during February. A beautiful building both inside and out, our room was stunning. We did not have an evening meal but the breakfast the next morning was very good, fresh and with plenty of choice. The staff were more than helpful and the young lady that checked us... More

Staying at this Beautiful Hotel was a treat. Tasteful décor throughout, very friendly and helpful staff and excellent food (especially dinner). Set in a quiet area it was like staying in a friend's grand house.

Found this hotel via groupon. Treating my wife for her birthday. Was on edge thinking I'd possibly booked somewhere she wouldn't like. Well, it was excellent. The lady at check-in was very helpful. Our room was outstanding. Clean and very comfortable. We both wished we had booked for two nights! Didn't have an evening meal and ate in town. Breakfast... More

Only stopped at this hotel for one night which was unfortunate for us, wish we could have stayed longer. The ambiance of the hotel, with its period rooms, high ceilings, and feeling of space was really pleasing. Although in middle of Feb, hotel was well booked, and obviously, some people were revisiting. Our receptionist Claire made us really welcome, and... More
