This is the second time that we've stayed here and we enjoyed it just as much. A lovely afternoon tea to welcome us, a beautifully appointed bedroom and as good a breakfast as you'll find anywhere. If you're in the area treat yourself and book here, you won't be disappointed.

It was very convenient for the International Centre (5 min drive or £4 in a...

My husband and I had a marvellous overnight stay at the Old Rectory. Hosts Rosemary and Adrian were very welcoming and homemade cakes with tea on arrival were fantastic. Our room was large and beautifully furnished and breakfast was excellent. Although we were there for a specific event in Madeley and so didn't do much sightseeing, The Old Rectory is...

We had a wonderful stay recently at this B&B. My husband stayed here last year and praised it so much I had to see it for myself. I was in no way disappointed. Beautiful place, wonderful hosts who are two of the loveliest, warmest people we have met. Absolutely faultless in every way. Will stay again next year for sure!

I researched a lot of hotels and B&Bs in the Telford area when planning our trip to Ironbridge Gorge. The reviews for The Old Rectory of St James (on TripAdvisor and elsewhere) were so full of praise that I immediately put it at the top of my list. The reviews speak for themselves; you could be forgiven for thinking they've...

There is nothing more that this property could possibly offer for the traveler. We also own a B&B and during out 13 week tour of England, we compared our lodgings with our own property in a bench marking exercise, because as any B&B owner would know, each property has some unique features. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We did stay in...

The best B&B I know. A perfect stay as usual. The cake was beautiful and catered for the Vegan in our party. Superb breakfast in a quiet peaceful location but handy for local attractions. Adrian and Rosemary were brilliant hosts.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The ideal choice for Business and Pleasure. Rosemary and Adrian are delighted to welcome you to this period Georgian Guest House, set in a quiet oasis, within easy reach of the bustling centre of Telford, the footpaths over the Shropshire hills and historic Ironbridge.
