What a delightful hotel a few miles from Shrewsbury. I stayed in the Dacre Room which was a single room with a small double bed. Everything I needed was there. Breakfast was included in the rate and was good local produce. I also had dinner in the hotel which at almost £20 for three courses proved excellent value. A really... More

We picked the Old Rectory as we wanted a night away to celebrate our Silver Wedding in a nice country house hotel. The house and setting are lovely and the food was excellent. We had a wonderful room and the staff team were most helpful and friendly.It was excellent value and a hotel we would return to again.

Generally good, more staff would be better as staff seemed a bit pushed at times, but can understand financial costs of running a hotel. Room was pleasant although our room had a view of a rough gravelly area, we could see the well maintained gardens as well to the side. We were above the kitchens and did hear the extractor... More

staff couldn't t do enough for us The room was lovely and they went to great lengths to manage a lactose free gluten free diet Would definitely stay again. Breakfast was lovely and again gluten free milk free options were offered without reminding . Reception staff were most helpful and the gardens are lovely to walk in

Myself and my partner got married here in April 2016, and we could not have been happier!!! When we booked the hotel we wanted different food to the set menus, not a problem!

Myself and my husband recently stayed here for 2 nights. Lovely relaxing break which was well needed! We had food on both evenings in the restaurant and the quality and presentation of the meals was superb. Compliments to the chef. Breakfast was also delicious and plenty of choice. Our room overlooked the gorgeous gardens, comfy and had everything we needed.... More

The Old Rectory is just that, built to express the Rector's status. This was our third stay. The two rooms we have stayed in (1 & 3) are comfortable and well equipped. No 1 is adequate No3. is large. As always the Rooms and public areas were noticeably clean. The decor is showing signs of wear and tear in places... More

This hotel is Georgian/Victorian in style and decorated to reflect the era. However, it's decor looks like it was actually completed in that era! It's dark, dingy and shabby and needs a thorough update throughout. Some lighter brighter colours everywhere would give it a more welcoming, modern feel without detracting from its age. We had a twin room at the... More
