Checked in by lovely receptionist who got chef to wait for 10 minutes as it was late and we were starving. The food was delicious and the room was warm, clean and quiet. In the morning breakfast was a buffet with very good choice. The house reeks character and the staff could not be more helpful. Thoroughly recommended.

We've just returned from an excellent 2 night stay at the Old Rectory. The hotel is full of charm and a delight to stay in. The staff were extremely pleasant and friendly from the booking to the check out. The rooms are tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean. We dined in the restaurant on both evenings and had very enjoyable meals....

We went for a two night stay at the Old Rectory with Groupon and were very pleased we did. This old building is beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable with very friendly staff and tasty food. The location and ambience is of a traditional English country house hotel - splendid surroundings and very quiet. It's not too far from Shrewsbury...

We decided to try the old rectory as we were in shrewsbury over the weekend and what a pleasant and enjoyable stay we had. The room we had was very spacious,luxurious and spotlessly clean,not to mention the beautiful surroundings. If i was to put a minus on anything it would be the small portions of hot food served at breakfast....

Just back from a two night Groupon break. We were pleasantly surprised. A beautiful period building, oozing wth character. Our room was lovely, overlooking the garden. The shower was amazing as the water pressure was so good. The staff were helpful and courteous and the food was fantastic...restaurant quality rather than pub grub. We had a day in nearby Shrewsbury...

I spent 4 nights here, in 2 different rooms as a single guest. Both rooms were comfortable, well decorated and appointed. The downside was the showers in both rooms - in the first the shower head would not reach the bracket which had been placed too high and in the second,the shower was too feeble. However this is a great...

Stayed here 16th sept on a 2 night special groupon offer. We were not disappointed! Had a lovely room, the upgrade half corona room which was very nice but doesn't really look over gardens at the back.
