Enjoyed our night at the Old Rectory. Suite was a really good size and well appointed with period furniture. Lovely bay windows overlooking the grounds. Member of staff we dealt with was very welcoming and helpful. Note the restaurant isn't open on a Monday though.

Lovely hotel, food superb, we had room 3 a Luxury room, very disappointed with the shower as it only trickled out of the shower head, could not have a bath as there was no plug for the bath, why not put a power shower in every room which would solve the problems. On the Saturday night there was a charity... More

Having booked via another website and with less than 48hrs notice I needed to change the date of visit. The website would not let me make changes without incurring a charge so I called the hotel direct. They were able to accommodate my request and no extra charges were made and with no fuss :) We arrived at the hotel... More

The gardens and surroundings are well kept.There is a permanent marquee at the side... More

Ate in the Orangery and food very good although you have to wait a bit longer as its cooked from fresh. Small Bar and a really lovely Drawing... More

Extremely nice looking hotel set in beautiful grounds. The room was really nice, although slightly outdated decor, this may have been part of the look of the hotel. Staff were absolutely fantastic. Bed very comfortable and room was very clean. Food was nice and well priced and the bar prices also reasonable. Would certainly recommend this hotel!

We got married here last week. The day was amazing. We had exclusive use of the hotel and used all of the rooms which were clean, comfortable and classically decorated. Selina, the manager, was excellent throughout the preparations and the wedding day. We can't thank her enjoy. Our guests really enjoyed the wedding breakfast, barbecue and their full English breakfasts... More

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.
