My parents gave my fiance and I a red letter days Dinner B+B Voucher and we decided to choose the Old Orleton Inn as we were keen to visit Iron Bridge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were really welcoming and helpful and we were pleased that in addition to steaks etc there was also a good variety of... 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

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 However when we came to having tea & coffee we discovered that the biscuit we were given was 2 1/2 months out of date.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

We stay in a fair few Hotels over the country, and were looking for something a bit different from the usual chain of Hilton/Marriott Hotels etc. So, we booked a 2 night weekend break at The Old Orleton. Whilst we understand it's a 5 star Inn, not a 5 star Hotel, our expectations were still fairly high. At £109 a... More

Had a lovely evening meal, looked after well by the staff. the starter, main & dessert were well spaced out, lovely atmosphere will definately return & eat there again. Lovely bar area and the gardens are well kept with lovely hanging baskets.
