We have stayed here many times and the rooms are very clean and staff really helpful. Service and food in the restaurant very good though be warned the portions are very big. Nice beer garden and bar menu good if you don't want a formal meal. The breakfast is excellent and has all you would expect from a high end... 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...

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

Went for a birthday treat with my husband;this is a very interesting characterful Georgian hotel which has been recently updated in a boutique style. Comfortable bedroom with ensuite, everything we could hope for in a hotel. Including Wifi with strong signal which is not always the case. Good menu choice, and excellent food. Breakfast also was fantastic, huge choice for... More
