My boyfriend and I stayed at the Old Rectory of St James for one night. We were taking part in an OCR event in Wolverhampton but wanted to stay somewhere a little more peaceful & serene. We found exactly what we were after here and more. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are stunning and the food is absolutely divine.... More

We arrived slightly early at the Old Rectory of St James for our son’s birthday weekend and were welcomed by the proprietors with tea and a selection of home baked cakes, which we thoroughly enjoyed in front of the open fire in one of two guest lounges. Both Adrian and Rosemary were absolutely delightful and the accommodation is beautiful, and... More

The Old Rectory of St James is an oasis. It was the perfect location for us to visit family and friends in the area and revisit many of the local attractions such as Ironbridge. Rosemary and Adrian are superb hosts, the house is beautiful and Rosemary is a superb cook. Her breakfasts are the best and small touches such as... More

We stayed for three nights. Rosemary and Adrain made us so very welcome. A perfect retreat for a few days respite. My husband and I had the Besselow room, so cosy, sitting under a lovely duvet on a very cold morning drinking our cup of tea in bed and eating lovely home-made cookies overlooking their pretty gardens. Breakfast was absolutely... More

Stayed over 2 nights for work locally. A real find, quiet, comfortable, delicious food, friendly people. The visitors lounge with a log fire was perfect for relaxing after a busy day and the homemade cake was delish. Couldn't fault it!

Hosts are excellent, friendly, helpful and accommodating. A warm, welcoming refuge with excellent room and breakfast of home made/locally sourced food. Do yourself a favour and stay here rather than a soulless mass market budget hotel.

The Old Rectory of St James is really lovely. The decor is lovely, the food delicious and the hosts make you really welcome. The hosts are really generous and a lot of thought has gone into the little details. I can't wait to stay again.

The quality of or whole stay was extremely high topped off by the friendly professionalism of our hosts. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, comparable to any top rated hotel. Our breakfast was superb and we could not fault any aspect of our stay. Highly recommended.

I stayed one night on a business trip. I was greeted by the host on a cold winters evening and treated to an evening meal of home made soup followed by perfectly baked cod and new potatoes. The room was up to hotel standard- en suite, spotlessly clean, towels, tv -everything was fine. beautiful breakfast. Perfect eggs. I recommend without... More

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
