We both have dietary issues and the chef and his staff had everything prepared for us and we want to thank them All the staff were... More

Just had a three night stay here visiting friends, could not have wished for a better place to stay, must be good, the locals use it. The room was lovely, the food was great and the management and their staff fantastic. Just like many others looking forward to our next visit!

We chose this inn because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor, and they didn't exaggerate! This is a world away from the chain hotels, and all the better for it. The owners were friendly and helpful, and right away we knew we were going to enjoy our stay at the Old Orleton. Our room was originally and comfortably appointed, with... More

Went to The Old Orleton last night for New Year's Eve and what a great night we had, a 10 course 'taster' meal which was of such high quality, the staff managed to serve all tables at the same time, the whole evening was brilliant from start to finish, the owners and staff were friendly and efficient and I can't...

Hi Thank you for your complimentary review. We are so glad you enjoyed new Years Eve with us. It was a very nice evening enjoyed by all the staff too. It's a complex evening that has to be choreographed very precisely to make it work, so your thanks to the staff is well received. Great to relax in the bar... More

Having never been to the Old Orleton before my husband and I felt "at home" as soon as we walked in for our 10th wedding anniversary meal which had been recommended by friends and work colleagues. The staff were friendly, polite and efficient throughout the evening. We both had fabulous meals. Strongly Recommend.

I booked a night at the hotel at the last moment, about lunch time on the day I needed to arrive. It was the nearest hotel to the Telford International Centre that had an empty room and I’m very pleased that I chanced upon it. The Orleton Inn has been established for about 300 years: this shows in the atmosphere... More
