How could anyone be disappointed here. Vickie is a warm and welcoming person and made us feel as if we had known her for years. The property is in a lovely rural and quite location with just the occasional vehicle passing. The rooms we used - Oak Room with its en-suite and sitting/dining room were clean and comfortable, the wood... More

Stayed here for one night based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed! Very warm welcome from Vickie. Provided tea and lovely cake and able to rest in a lovely sitting/dining room area. Wonderful bedroom provided (Oak Room) with good bathroom amenities. Fantastic full cooked breakfast. Would recommend to all!

We have been to Old School B&B 3 times during the pass 15 months with different reasons. Our anniversary, with our parents and son. Every time, we have been welcomed warmly.

I stayed here Jan 2014 with my partner and son. We immediately felt welcome and at home. With a log burner and a pot of tea and some biscuits, what more could we ask for. The proprietor helped us select somewhere to go for tea and ordered us a taxi. In the morning we we served a lovely home cooked... More

We have stayed many times here, as the high standard of accommodation and fantastic welcome create a perfect break from our busy lives. The rooms are luxurious and incredibly comfortable, with everything you would expect and more, such as fridges, different coffees and teas and lovely toiletries. The location is fabulous as it feels so remote, yet Shrewsbury and multiple... More

We have stayed in the old school house in the family room for the past few years, when visiting relatives in Welshpool. It is an excellent base for both Welshpool and the surrounding hill walks. We always get a warm welcome and excellent breakfast. It feels very luxurious to have the lounge next to the bedroom and when we have... More

I booked the Old School after discovering that TripAdvisor had no hotels in the Welshpool area. I was visiting on business and needed somewhere to stop overnight mid week. Vickie was very welcoming and a cuppa was gratefully received within minutes of arriving. The accommodation is immaculate, the log burner warming, the bed comfortable. Add to that, a delicious and...
