What a gem! the welcome is warm and friendly . The inn is beautifully restored with a contemporary decor scheme which reveals and enhances the period details of this 18th century building and unlike many modern hotels there is art on the walls and interesting objects and ornaments around which gives a warm feeling. There are 10 (i think) individually designed bedrooms. I stayed in a lovely room with en suite shower. It was immaculate- clean, tidy and beautifully decorated with a modern wallpaper and furniture, but allowing the old timber frame of the building to be shown off. The towels are super sized and soft and best of all there
is a super selection of tea, coffee and - wait for it----chocolates!!!!
I spent a very comfortable night and in the morning had a simply fabulous breakfast. At this inn they use as much locally produced food as possible and the sausage and bacon were very tasty - they come from nearby Much Wenlock. Shropshire and its food certainly deserves a wider audience and if you are thinking of visiting Shropshire you could do no better than making The Old Orleton your headquarters.
