I stayed for one night, and it was superb in every respect. Homely atmosphere, very good size room and en-suite (and duvet, no sheets!), delicious afternoon tea on arrival (it was embarrassing which cake to leave off the plate, so I had them all), lovely home cooked breakfast from someone who knows how to properly cook poached eggs. Delightful couple... More

I found this on the Net, we wanted somewhere handy for the Telford International Centre and give ourselves a bit of a treat at the same time. I go for old places and a rectory sounded ideal (good website). It was easy to get to on the edge of town and is very quiet, with virtually no traffic noise. We... More

A superb welcome from charming hosts, fantastic home-made cakes on arrival, lovely elegant rooms in a delightful setting. The perfect place to stay for visiting Ironbridge and surrounding countryside.

I have just returned from a hugely enjoyable two day stay at the Old Rectory. I can honestly say it is by far the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. Adrian and Rosemary are wonderful, provide true hospitality. The house is stunning, beds comfy and the rooms are beautiful. There are loads of little touches that make... More

This is an extraordinary place to stay thanks to the attention to small details. I could happily have stayed for days and enjoyed the comfort of the rooms. The homemade macaroons in your room are fantastic and the bed one of the most comfortable i have sleep in. Just make sure you book for long enough to enjoy it all.

Great hotel in the outskirts of Telford. Wonderful and helpful hosts. Top quality toiletries sheets etc. Breakfasts are superb - make sure you have plenty of space. Lovely rooms with very comfortable beds.

This place is a real gem! We arrived late, but got a call on our way to check we were ok. There was fresh milk available at night, breakfast was so fresh and locally produced with a great variety, plus some fresh home made biscuits, all within close reach of Telford, some great well-recommended restaurants and Iron bridge. Adrian and... More

We were made to feel most welcome with the tea and cakes on arrival. The breakfast was excellent, all home made preserves and cooked to order. Good optional evening meal. Spotlessly clean throughout. Couldn't have asked for anything more, would certainly return.

Lovely lovely lovely!! Better than any of those corporate, clinical, ikea hotels. They suck. This place is beautiful, calm and the bed was to die for. Puts my orthopaedic mattress to shame! Thank you Adrian and Rosemary for a wonderful stay.
