On arrival we were greeted by the friendly receptionist who booked us in quickly and showed us to our room. We stayed in the Parsons Room which was nicely decorated and had everything you could need, including added extras of cotton balls and buds. We didn't have breakfast but I'm sure it would have been to a high standard. Will...

I visited here with my partner recently. it is a beautiful old building. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist, but I was surprised we were asked to pay for our stay before we had even set foot in the room, ! There was no heating in the room when we got there, but this was sorted...

Stayed for one night over the weekend and will be back again. A beautiful building with plenty of original character. Reminded me of our old hotel and felt relaxed and at home. From the minute we walked through the door we were greeted and treated wonderfully. Opted for an evening meal and it was terrific. Breakfast was well cooked and...

I stayed here for a couple of nights recently in a single room. The price I paid was so very cheap (less than £40 a night with breakfast) as it was a last minute booking. I wasn't expecting much at all for that but how wrong I was. When I drove up to this beautiful old building I was instantly...

The Old Rectory is in a quiet location in it's own grounds so a good nights sleep is pretty much assured. The buidling itself is very old but well appointed with a bar and separate lounge. Our own room was large, individualy decorated and was spotlessly clean with it's own mini bar. The evening menu is a bit limited but...

Was instantly impressed with the building and grounds both inside and out. The charm and character of the building have been beautifully maintained. My room was charming comfortable and had everything I wanted including wifi. The young lady on reception seemed to be ran off her feet serving the bar and waitressing too but very efficiently. My evening meal was...

Enjoyed our night at the Old Rectory. Suite was a really good size and well appointed with period furniture. Lovely bay windows overlooking the grounds. Member of staff we dealt with was very welcoming and helpful. Note the restaurant isn't open on a Monday though.

Lovely hotel, food superb, we had room 3 a Luxury room, very disappointed with the shower as it only trickled out of the shower head, could not have a bath as there was no plug for the bath, why not put a power shower in every room which would solve the problems. On the Saturday night there was a charity...
