Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The most amazing stay, in an amazing house with absolutely stunning hosts! On our short but lovely porcelain trip we had a night at Simon and Gary’s Old Hall House and we loved every second of it! Driving up to the house you feel as if you are transported through time and the spell continues as you venture into the house! The house is beautifully renovated and the respect for the house and it’s history shines through every design choice ☺️ The Queen Margaret room was just so amazing and all the details and attention put into the room was amazing! The breakfast was delicious and the service throughout the stay was just top notch! Simon and Gary went out of their way to make us feel welcome even though we only stayed there for one night! If or when we ever come visit the area again we are 100% sure that we will be staying here!

My God! This is such a beautiful building. We were greeted by Gary at the reception door, he offered to take our luggage to the room and showed us around the building. We were staying in The Victorian Room and what a beautiful room it was. There was a bottle of complimentary sherry with chocolates, tea/coffee/ hot chocolate/ cappuccino/ selection of fruit teas/bottled water and biscuits. It even has Siri! A lovely deep roll top bath with fluffy towels and a superbly comfortable bed added to the luxury. I chose this B&B to stay as a birthday gift for my partner. I arranged with the hosts to have wine and Prosecco in the room. There is a wealth of information in the itinerary book in the room - equally knowledgeable was Gary as he filled us in about the history of the B&B and places to eat. I must mention that this beautiful gem won Four in a Bed during series two. We took a walk around the well-kept garden, it was such a delightful sight. We sat in the Tudor room for breakfast- we both ordered a full English and scoffed the lot along with toast and a lovely selection of mini jams/honey/marmalade. The food is sourced locally and we couldn’t eat it quick enough. We can’t fault this place, the hosts are fabulous and can’t do enough for you, we’re definitely going back soon 😊

What a fabulous place! Simon and Gary are THE consummate hosts. We were made to feel extremely welcome throughout our 2 night stay. We stayed in Charles II suite which was just beautiful. Lovingly and exquisitely restored with a great eye for detail. Every home comfort you could wish for, including a variety of teas/coffees, sherry (!!), chocs and fresh milk (none of that UHT rubbish here). The bathroom was delightful and I took advantage of the sumptuous bath (sorry guys for using all the radox!). The huge bed was very comfortable with gorgeous pillows. Breakfast on both mornings was delicious. Fresh fruit juices, cereals/fruit and yoghurt on offer to start, followed by an extensive hot menu. Top quality ingredients, cooked and served to perfection. We both had full English day one and eggs Benedict/scrambled egg on toast day 2 (gorgeous eggs from the hens on site). If you're looking for a special time away and a real treat, then look no further. Hard work certainly pays off. Simon and Gary have their craft spot on. Quality will always be remembered when the price is forgotten. Kath & Dave xx

Wow wow wow, honestly one of the best places we have ever stayed at, Gary and Simon are the perfect hosts, nothing to much trouble, we arrived on the Saturday for a wedding reception, Gary came out to us, help with luggage, the room we stayed in was amazing, honestly you have to stay here, from the moment we arrived till we left ,we were made to feel special,felt like you were with friends, that's how much these two fantastic guy's made you feel. The evening buffet was out standing, then the breakfast was so good, we will definitely be back, the old hall as it all, but I would say it's because of Gary and Simon, stay here ,you will not be disappointed, can't wait to see you soon, thank you so much

My husband and I recently stayed over at the charming, characterful Old Hall Country House during a visit to the Potteries in Stoke. Our host, Gary, was extremely welcoming and gave us a little tour of this fascinating house before showing us to our room. Everything was spot on. The room, the Victorian, was beautifully decorated and had absolutely everything one needed for a comfortable stay, including a small carafe of sherry (nice touch!). The bed was really comfortable and we wished we could have stayed longer…maybe next time! Thank you Gary and Simon PS Sorry we left our little take away from the Wedgwood tea room, but hope you enjoyed the contents ;)

We stayed at the Old Hall House because my husband was working in Stoke, its located in a charming village, near to a lovely little lake. The building is beautiful, and nothing is too much trouble for the marvellous host, Simon! Loved the room, loved the chickens and their excellent eggs, loved the welcome, loved the little touches, loved the local pub and the local Indian restaurant (apologies Simon, for the waft of garlic at breakfast!), loved it all, faultless!! Will def return. Considerate and welcoming, relaxing! Unexpected indulgence. Thank you.

We stayed at the Old Hall as part of our wedding day. Simon & Gary were kind enough to allow us to use the grounds as welcome drinks for our reception which was held on the same site at the Stables private dining venue. We then stayed overnight in their Charles II suite. This B&B is amazing, full of original features with still a height of luxury. Nothing is too much trouble. All of those who attended our drinks reception commented on the beauty of the gardens (which are huge!) The bathroom and the bedroom in Charles II are outstanding, bed is so comfortable, and was exactly what a tired bride needed after a full day on her feet. Breakfast was delightful, Simon is so welcoming and made us feel right at home. So funny, and genuinely full of warmth. Simon, you are absolutely amazing and you helped so much to make our day fantastic. We will 1000000% be back for our 1st wedding anniversary and hopefully all of those afterwards.

Stayed for 4 days for our 50th Wedding Anniversary in August. An absolutely beautiful property with excellent facilities . The breakfasts were outstanding as were the hosts Simon and Gary , for which nothing was to much trouble. The gardens were beautiful , split into large garden rooms, including an allotment area ! There are also numerous seats and benches dotted around the garden to take in the lovely garden views . Simon and Gary are the perfect hosts

My husband and I stayed here for one night, in the Queen Margaret room, in August 2022 on a very hot summer's day. The room was beautifully cool and it was absolutely gorgeous. It was immaculately clean and had everything that you would need. A great selection of hot drinks, a decanter of sherry (which we did not take advantage of, being rum and wine drinkers!), a massive and very comfortable bed, lovely walk in shower. Bathroom toiletries were great - lovely touch with cotton wool pads included too. The house has two acres of gardens which we were told we could explore - the gardens are absolutely stunning. We had a great game of boules out there too, with hens chasing the jack thinking it was food. We were just so lucky to be staying here in the height of summer. Gary & Simon are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them, breakfast was very tasty too (guess where the eggs came from). The property is stunning. We went for dinner at the local Indian restaurant, just a couple of minutes walk away (the meal and service there were great), and after dinner we relaxed in the Orangery at the Old Hall Country House. Please do not hesitate to stay here - you will not be disappointed!
