The Old Rectory Hotel was the venue for my Hen Party, approximately 10 guests. Everyone had an excellent time. The rooms were clean and comfortable, even the smallest room was lovely and cosy. The staff were friendly and attentive. I was impressed with the amount of effort they'd put in to decorating the room and making sure everyone was catered... More

This was a magic, last minute find - very pretty location, lovely hotel with the most comfortable single bed I've ever slept in! (Helps that it was 4ft wide!). We were so well looked after - nothing was too much bother, including collecting fresh peppermint out go the herb garden for a post-meal digestif! Looking forward to a return visit... More

We were staying in Grinshill for a week and booked Sunday lunch for four people. We were greeted by pleasant staff and shown to the lounge to have a pre-lunch drink and choose from the menu. We were shown to our table in the conservatory and offered more drinks. Our starters were very nice and good sized portions. The main... More

Recently attended a wedding here and it was very nice. The staff seemed attentive and very friendly except for when we were kept waiting for a drink in the bar. The meal was satisfactory and ovreall it was a very pretty and nice place for a wedding.

Just returned from a 2 Night stay at this excellent hotel. Just on the outskirts of Wem you could be a million miles away in some remote part of the world. Wonderful pleasant gardens in a very peaceful location. The hotel is very comfortable, clean and friendly. The staff were outstanding polite and nothing was to much trouble. The food... More

We could not have had a better weekend break. The hotel is beautiful together with the gardens. The staff could not have been more helpful and we wanted for nothing. Hope we get a chance to visit again. Beryl & Ron.
