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

We stayed at the Inn again for the second time, again they did not disappoint. Very clean, spacious rooms, staff very pleasant and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The food again was brilliant and we stayed there every evening for our evening meals. If you want an easy place to find, a nice easy and comfortable atmosphere, good food... More

We recently visited The Old Orleton for a celebratory meal, which was very good, all three courses. However when we came to having tea & coffee we discovered that the biscuit we were given was 2 1/2 months out of date. We reported this to the owner and he made very light of the situation, saying it would not do... More

My wife and I needed to stay for two nights somewhere that was convenient for Telford; following an awful experience last year at a large chain hotel in Telford itself, we sought somewhere more personable. The Old Orleton Inn really fitted the bill. Service that was both personal and personable, stylish accommodation with bags of character, with good food available,... More
