“Our special day made all the more special”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We have just recently got married at the The Old Hall Country House and also stayed overnight after our reception. Both of us were looked after completely by the owners and cannot thank them enough for all their efforts. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were happy to accommodate us and the requirements we had for our ceremony in every way they could.

We stayed in the Charles II room which has a large four poster bed and furnished to a very high standard. It incorporates a luxury bathroom with twin basins, large bath and shower.

The house and gardens have lots of character and the area of Madeley is quiet and picturesque. If your planning a civil wedding or simply want to spoil your loved one then I cannot think of a better place to visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of a high standard and offer something for everyone. Expect the rooms to have char...

The Old Hall was recommended to us by an old friend from the area whose son was getting married.

There are only three bedrooms but they are beautifully appointed with large en suite bath/shower rooms. Our only criticism is that there wasn't much room to put things down, particularly in our bathroom; e.g. books, soap, shampoo. Our bed was large and very comfortable.

The Old Hall is owned and managed by a charming couple who treat each guest as a personal one. All you had to do was ask - e.g. for a drink, tea, water. The website could make it clear that the restaurant is only available for private parties of at least 8 people. We heard, however, that it is excellent. Breakfast was good with Staffordshire Oatcakes that we had not tried before.

Altogether a very pleasant two-night stay.

Thank you for your kind review. We were trying for 100 reviews with perfect scores, but unfortunatley at 96 reviews (this one ) we got a 90%, never mind. We have taken the two comments on board that you make, our website now clearly states that the Stables Restaurant is for private dining of 8 guests or more with bookings in advance and we have put a seperate table in the Victorian room where you stayed, so as there is more space to put things down. Apart from that you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us and we hope to see you again. Many thanks.

We spent a night here whilst getting together with family in the area, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather was kind and we were able to spend time in the beautiful garden which was a real treat. The rooms are full of character and really well kept with many thoughtful touches including a decanter of sherry which was much appreciated. An excellent breakfast sent us on our way very happily indeed.

Perfect four day stay and as already stated by previous reviews, made to feel important and special throughout our stay. Simon and Gary did everything to make my son's wedding perfect and this was not easy, but they pulled it off. We live in Dubai and have been spoiled, so was surprised when our expectations were surpassed and then some. Fantastic bed and Linen, beautiful Room and En-suite, the list of amenities are endless and even the sausages at breakfast are locally sourced!!
No complaints, if I was to be very very picky, the Wi-Fi was a little weak in our room, but Simon told us this on arrival and the hotel and gardens were so amazing, I soon put the IPad away and relaxed. If you want a lovely Wedding Venue and or a perfect Hotel to stay in, you will will not get a better place to for the money.
99% is a little joke between me and Simon and if I could award 110%, I would!!!

We both had a giggle when we read your review, the 99% and the locally sourced sausage made us laugh. It was a pleasure to have met you both and enjoyed the chats we had during your three night stay with us. It was also a pleasure to have hosted your son's wedding. Thank you for taking the time to write this review and we do hope to see you again in the future. Take care.

My friends got married here only yesterday and I had the good fortune to spend the majority of the day in these delightful settings. On first arriving you are greeted with the sight of this old Tudor building, clearly steeped in history. One of the owners either Gary or Simon (I forget which) was on hand to greet guest and guide them in to meet the rest of the wedding party. The gardens provided a wonderful setting for all the photographs and created a very tranquil scene which helped make the day truly amazing. When the weather soured slightly and the heavens opened guest were ushered in to the orangery where the sound of the rain on the roof above once again created a feeling of tranquillity. The owner couldn't do enough to offer support scurrying around in the back ground putting out more seats for the guest and ensuring that music was playing even when we made the move from outside to in. As a close friend to both the bride and the groom I got to enjoy a complementary glass of sherry in the Charles II Suite, which is breath taking; the bath room was especially well done.

I can honestly say that if my friends hadn't already made the venue theirs I would pick this venue for my own wedding day.

My wife and I had our wedding service and wedding breakfast and pre-reception gathering here, and i have to say it was the best day of my life. The venues is not only beautiful and serene but expertly layed out for our big day. The owners were polite, helpful and intuitive about our needs. we also stayed the night of the wedding and the room was wonderful, lovely bed and perfect decor. I cannot fault the old hall in anyway shape or form. I not only highly recomend this venue but actively encourage people to go here.
If i had to describe this place in one word? Perfection!

My husband and I got married here yesterday and I had the pleasure of staying there the night before and of the wedding. The whole day was perfect, Gary and Simon will do anything they can to make your day extra special. The room was stunning and extremely confortable, perfect for relaxing the night before and getting ready in the morning and their breakfasts are fantastic. Absolutely perfect, I cant recommend the old hall country house enough :) The venue as well as gary and simon made my wedding day perfect and everyone complimented the wonderful house and gardens.

Room Tip: We stayed in the charles II suite and it was absolutely gorgeous
