We were looking for a hotel as we were visiting the NEC but prices were high with even a Travelodge at £92 for room only. Just about to give up as I moved the cursor over the map up popped the price for ORH so I took alook and was very surprised to see what appeared to be a very... More

We drove up the driveway to discover this quiet little gem, although only having just left a main road. The welcome was excellent, followed by being shown to our spacious room, the centre piece being a four poster bed. The staff were friendly and helpful.

My first stay at this hotel. Lovely old building which has been sympathetically adapted into a stylish hotel. Very friendly welcome. Very comfortable room. Unfortunately I didn't have time for breakfast so can't comment on the food. I will return!

I booked this hotel as it was close to a work site, I was looking for something with a little character having stayed in the Premier Inn the week before, and the Old Rectory did not disappoint. The rooms I had was generous in size, and charmingly furnished, with white wrought iron bed and chintzy fabrics. Very comfortable. I mistakenly... More

My partner and I stayed at the Old Rectory as we were going to a gig in Birmingham. The hotel is easy to find yet completely tucked away in its pretty gardens. We arrived a little early and our room wasn't quite ready but we were shown to the drawing room and offered complementary tea and biscuits which was a... More

The service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble, day or night.At first glance it seemed expensive,but when all the fringe benefits were added on this was not so. We would go back again,and recommend this hotel to anyone

Almost three weeks ago, my new husband and I were married at The Old Rectory. In summary, we had an incredible day at this beautiful venue thanks in no small part to the friendliness, attentiveness and hard work of all the staff and the distinctiveness of the location. We fell in love with The Old Rectory the moment we turned... More

What a gem of a venue in Redditch. We were looking for a secluded, private and stylish lunchtime dining venue to celebrate a significant family milestone with 16 of us. The Old Rectory team provided several menu options at a reasonable price and gave us confidence they knew what they were doing. The decor and presentation of the room and... More

I have to start by saying what lovely, attentive, friendly staff at The Old Rectory Hotel. Thank you to Theresa, Lindsey and lovely team who made our stay very pleasant. We will absolutely be returning soon when we are back in Redditch. I will also be strongly considering this for our Wedding Venue :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
THE HOUSE Discover our hidden gem and enjoy a truly memorable stay or event experience! The Old Rectory House Hotel is a privately owned quintessential English country house hotel in Redditch. Tucked away in the Heart of England, The Old Rectory House offers a relaxing & comfortable venue for work & play. Our quintessential Elizabethan & Georgian House radiates charm & peace, providing the perfect setting for all family occasions including weddings, christenings, birthday parties and funeral receptions and ideal for conferences, business meetings, seminars, training sessions and team building events. THE GROUNDS Our house sits in the heart of three acres of wooded gardens, with hundreds of plants and trees. Many of our larger trees including the stunning English Oaks, the Portuguese Laurels and the Weeping Ash were planted over 200 years ago. With our very own croquet lawn at the front of the house, its landscape is a perfect setting for picnicking, partying, pampering and pondering, and although it can feel blissfully set apart from the bustle of everyday life, it's within remarkably easy reach of many of the Warwickshire & Worcestershire's most exciting highlights. The team at The Old Rectory House know the estate and area like the back of their hands, so whether you need a recommendation for a picnic spot, directions for a nature walk, or a map for an all-day ramble (marked with the best local pub stops, naturally), just pop into the House for a chat. THE LOCATION The Old Rectory House Hotel is situated within a short drive of many major English tourist attractions including Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, The NEC, Resort World, NIA, The Cotswolds and Birmingham Bull Ring Shopping Centre. It is also a short walk from the Arrow Valley Country Park, a beautiful lake and country park where you can take an easy stroll, have a serious jog around the lake or arrange to go fishing and sailing. Birmingham International Airport, Resort World, NEC & Gentings Arena can be accessed by car within 20 minutes using the M42 motorway network which is 5 minute drive from the hotel. Bicester Shopping Village is only 55 minutes from the Old Rectory Hotel London is only 1 hour 30 minutes by train which makes our hotel a perfect retreat for holiday international tourists. THE HISTORY The Old Rectory House Hotel is probably the best kept secret in the Worcestershire county, it has stood on this site for several hundreds of years and has a wealth of historical connections. The house lies between the original Roman built Icknield Street, which runs along the far boundary, and the monastic carp lakes at the rear of the property. The Doomsday Book lists a building on this site in 1086, during which time Lady Godiva's son was Lord of the Manor. The Great Grandson of Sir Christopher Wren lived in the house for over forty years and made a number of alterations in that time. He completely modernised the original Elizabethan house in 1812 by adding a Georgian facade to the front elevation of the building. ... more   less
