The old Rectory Team
Having tried a few places in Wem as I am there once a month on business I had almost given up as the previous establishments had been pretty awful. What a relief to find the Old Rectory. Lovely bedroom overlooking a quiet garden. very comfortable bed (if anything a little too soft!), free wifi (that actually worked) and one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had. I will be back next trip
Thank you for your review, I am really pleased you have found us in Wem and enjoyed your stay. I will pass your kind comments onto the staff and we look forward to welcoming you back
The old Rectory Team
A lovely quiet night just what we needed. The room overlooked a lovely garden, staff were friendly, good breakfast, free wifi, all very pleasant.
15 minutes drive from the storytelling festival meant we could enjoy the day there first.
Would go again.
Thank you for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and the quiet great sleep that you needed was given!
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Old Rectory
I can only concur with the majority of the other reviewers....this was a gem of a find on our travels north to Llandudno and Liverpool. Upon entering the hotel we were met with a most charming and helpful receptionist who seemed genuinely pleased that we had chosen the Old Rectory for our stay. The room was clean and comfortable and the toilet facilities were equally acceptable. We chose to eat dinner out of the hotel at a local pub kindly recommended by the Receptionist.....an excellent 'call' on her part. Breakfast, in the Dining Room overlooking the garden, was particularly pleasant and both the food and service were fine. Although perhaps needing a little TLC, the hotel is both charming and welcoming and was perfect for our overnight stay. Would definitely recommend.
Stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding just a couple of miles away. Coming from Australia, we do not see this type of property so enjoyed the experience of the past. Impressive property, rooms fine if a little tired. Breakfasts were top class. Staff all very helpful.
Just stayed her for one night. We stayed here many years ago when first renovated, unfortunately it now seems very tired looking. Our arrival the tv was not working. The one bedside lamp was not working. One bedside table for double bed does not work, have to put your drinks on floor. The bathroom very basic and needs smartening up. The curtains do not seem to open properly which makes it very dark. Whilst the food at breakfast is good the service is terrible. It took over an hour and fifteen minutes. Just one poor young lady trying to do everything with the short appearance of one other. Certainly won't bother going back.
Thank you for your review. After being open for 12 years the hotel has started to be refurbished as you would have noticed from the bar area, but as you must appreciate especially during the summer it is very difficult with the hotel being so busy.
The television wasn't switched on at the that socket which I rectified as soon as it was bought to my attention, I was not aware of the lamp however, I am confident if a member of staff was aware of it, the matter would have been resolved efficiently.
The bedroom curtains are worked by a pully system and the cord is visible on the right hand side which is there for your convenience, manually pulling unfortunately doesn't work.
I am sorry to hear you felt breakfast service wasn't running as smoothly as normal, there was adequate staff on duty but I understand the majority of guests came in as a group and all wanted breakfast at the same time which put pressure on the kitchen as all hot food is cooked to order.
