The Old Rectory is so much more than a quality, beautiful boutique hotel. We were married here on 23.7.15, and were completely blown away by the hotel and staff. Tracey-Anne, with Helen and Caitlin, and all the team, made our day a complete dream come true. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was stunning (both for our wedding breakfast,... More

Although this is described as a b&b, this is more like a boutique hotel. The staff, Helen and Tracey-Anne, are just amazing. On arrival we were offered tea or coffee even before checking in, making us feel so welcome after a long drive from the west country. Nothing was too much trouble, even our noisy little two year old visitor... More

Tracey-Anne and Helen are the best hosts you could wish for, nothing is too much trouble. Homemade cake and tea/coffee on arrival, the most delicious choice at breakfast, most of which is also homemade. Comfortable rooms beautifully furnished throughout. I could just go on and on singing their praises...

This was a lovely B&B although more like a boutique hotel. Staff Helen and Tracey-Anne were friendly, professional, and helpful,and helped make my stay thoroughly enjoyable. The breakfasts were delicious, quickly and freshly cooked to order. There were no major negatives during my stay (although the cleaning could have been a bit better, but still quite acceptable), and I would... More

After searching around for some time we decided the Old Rectory looked like it would be the ideal venue for our wedding in June. Upon meeting our wonderful hosts Tracey-Anne and Helen and seeing the beautiful gardens and property we knew we had made the right choice. The garden is extensive, beautiful and secluded yet the property is right on... More

I treated my 2 daughters (circa 40!) to a childfree night in this utterly charming B&B - boutique hotel more like. I stayed in Tackleway room & daughters in large All saints suite which they loved but all rooms are lovely & the terraced garden is sublime. The location is perfect, within a few minutes walk of old town. The... More

I stayed at the Old Rectory for 2 nights for my little sister's wedding. After a 7 hour car journey arriving at the hotel was like coming home. I have never felt so relaxed in a hotel before. The 2 ladies who run it are wonderful. Each room is beautifully designed, comfortable and spacious. The gardens are a joy. Food... More

5 stars are not enough for this beautiful and sublimely run hotel! We had our wedding here last weekend, Tracey-Anne helped us plan everything to the last detail and her wonderful staff made our dream become reality. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic, service outstanding and whole experience amazing! We stayed in the Crown suite but all... More
