Had afternoon tea with my parents to celebrate my Fathers 93rd birthday. Staff extremely welcoming, attentive and accommodating. Selection of sandwiches, pastries, cakes and scone were delicious. The hotel is beautiful and immaculate.

Stayed for one night in early March 2021. The hall has a large log fire burning in the reception hall, which sets the tone for a lovely stay. The owners and staff are excellent delivering very high service levels, and great food. I stayed as part of a corporate event which took over much of the hotel, but everyone who stayed was treated as an individual, and warmly welcomed. The bedroom I had was within the house itself, and had a large bedroom with a huge ensuite with separate large bath and substantial shower cubicle. Water pressure in the shower was good (pumped pressure), and the room was serviced to a very high standard. The breakfast, lunch and dinner we were served were excellent, and the bar service impeccable. Thoroughly recommend for business or pleasure! This would be an excellent quiet location for a weekend getaway exploring the Shropshire countryside.

Goldstone Hall is about as good as it gets. The welcome is warm and genuine and the staff are excellent without exception. There is a genuine feel of contentment and goodness about the place - the real fires help! Our room was delightful - spacious, clean and comfortable. The food is outstanding. We were served at dinner and breakfast by three absolutely charming young ladies: how lovely to meet and converse with such interesting company.

Booked afternoon tea for mums 89 birthday. Despite living locally, this was our first visit and will certainly visit again. We received a warm welcome, despite being late nothing was too much trouble.2 more adults and a child were added at last minute, not a problem, veggie choice for 2 requested the same morning, , not a problem the room was beautifully set out with lovely warm log fire, we were served afternoon tea and left to chat and relax with interruption only to top up our drinks and hot water for babys milk. Toddler had jam and chocolate everywhere, not a problem. So relaxing and friendly. Gardens are stunning. Thankyou again for sharing your wonderful home, we had a fabulous afternoon and had so many cakes we had to have some boxed up to bring home. We will certainly look forward to seeing you again

Was lucky to receive a Goldstone Hall afternoon tea voucher for a birthday present. The afternoon tea was beautifully presented with tasty finger sandwiches, warm sausage rolls and mini quiches, light and fluffy scones with jam and clotted cream and a selection of mini cakes. We had the choice from a range of many teas and coffees. As always service was friendly and efficient, ambiance peaceful, with the added benefit of a wander around the gardens, which in winter are still delightful.

Goldstone Hall hotel is a wonderful place to stay, and having stayed twice in the last year, I've vowed to visit at least annually to enjoy all that it has to offer. It is family run, which means it is personal, polite and joyful. The food is faultless; it is grown, prepared and cooked with skill , love and generosity. Want to know where your fresh green salad at dinner originated from? Look no further than the awe-inspiring gardens, which combine beauty with an abundance of kitchen produce that any chef would be envious of. The bedrooms are spacious, lovely and oh, so comfortable. I really love Goldstone Hall, it is a steal of a place to visit.

Goldstone Hall is situated in delight surroundings. The gardens are really pretty and the produce for the hotel is well organised, including vegetables and herbs. We were presented with a set lunch menu which was inside a colourful plan of the hotel and garden. We made our choices and not long after we're shown to our table. However, we had to wait nearly half an hour before any food appeared. The main course - roast beef and Yorkshire pudding was served,but instead of the ladies being served first the gentlemen were! Sadly the meal was not very hot at all. Also the vegetables were barely cooked, particularly the carrots and broccoli spears. The parsnips lacked any colour and one got the impression that these vegetables were an afterthought. A trolley appeared with the Desserts which were very varied. However, the Rhubarb cheesecake was served to my friend, but it was just about on the plate on the rim! I think some training should be given as to serving desserts, as another item was on the lower shelf and instead of bringing the dish either onto the trolley or the table, this was served by the waitress bending down and just about managing to get that on the plate. Maybe everyone was tired but I'm not in a hurry to return.

We were expecting great things following the recent visit by The Daily Mail's Hotel Inspector. On our arrival we were escorted to our room, which was clean & well presented, the bathroom fittings being of top quality and possibly quite new. We asked for tea in the garden, but nothing appeared and we had to go inside to find out what was happening. The tea then arrived. Dinner was fine, but a somewhat limited choice, including such delicacies as fish & chips. However, breakfast was the big let down. There seemed to be only one very pleasant girl trying to serve the entire hotel on her own, covering two rooms, and to say that the service was slow is an understatement. We had to ask three times for some toast. Since the owners apparently live on site, it would have been nice to see them in action at breakfast to give a hand. The hotel has a great setting but will lose custom unless it addresses the service issues - which would be a great pity.

Response from Goldstone Hall, Owner at Goldstone Hall Hotel
Responded 30 Aug 2021
Dear Tripadvisor Reader, Following the Missannajobelle review above, we provide the Daily Mail report, warts and all, referred to so you can draw your own conclusions. “Glorious gardens, frogs that hop about in the dining room and 'terrific value' mains at dinner (all £16 or less): The hotel inspector is a fan of Shropshire's 'strangely comforting' Goldstone Hall The gardens at Goldstone Hall are worth the price of admission on their own. Well, almost. There are some five glorious acres, including one of the most vibrant kitchen gardens, bursting with every conceivable vegetable, lettuce and fruit. There are double herbaceous borders, an oak-framed open building with huge fireplace and the tallest pine tree in Shropshire. This is all a labour of love by John and Sue Cushing, whose two daughters also work in the hotel, making it a family business of the best possible kind. The Inspector awarded Goldstone Hall in Market Drayton an impressive four out of five stars John’s parents bought the house in 1978 but his father died shortly afterwards, prompting his mother — a passionate follower of the gardener Beth Chatto — to run it as a B&B. There are now 12 rooms; ours could easily be passed off as a 1978 creation. Pale blue carpet; pelmets; noisy pipe work; proper keys; windows that open as wide as you like and several water colours of Mustique — which John bought from the estate of the late publisher Felix Dennis while sailing in the Caribbean. An espresso coffee machine would feel like it had landed on an alien planet at Goldstone Hall. Old school, in other words. But friendly, generous and strangely comforting. Mind you, we don’t get off to the best of starts when, on arrival, I ask for a cream tea and nothing arrives for 45 minutes. I get stroppy with a member of staff but later apologise for my outburst. ‘No, you were right,’ he says. Before dinner, we walk around the garden and come across a man in a floral shirt, carrying a glass of red wine. ‘Have you seen the frogs?’ he asks. ‘Sometimes a family come into the house and hop about in the dining room.’ This is John, our genial host, strolling among his hollyhocks, delphiniums and roses, just as he has done for most of his life. The kitchen garden is the star at dinner. I have seldom waited with such enthusiasm for a plain green salad. Terrific value, too, with none of the main courses costing more than £16. At check-out, John writes our invoice by hand and, as he does so, says: ‘Can I assume the Mustique paintings are still on the wall?’ ” Daily Mail 21.08.2021 For the record Sue and I live on site and I, aka Froggy John, cook breakfast about 95% of the time. As it happens I was assisting on this morning and also in detailed conversation with our talented Head Gardener Nick on tackling the blight pandemic playing havoc with the Buxus sempervirens (Box Hedge to us non Latin experts) outside the breakfast room window. Was breakfast slow? All I can say is that everything on our breakfast dishes are cooked from scratch to order with absolutely no lingering pre-cooked buffet bar that seems to be ubiquitous but is not going to feature at Goldstone anytime soon. I suspect all hurrying up cooking devices such as microwaves or steamer ovens also would “feel like they have landed on an alien planet at Goldstone Hall” It may mean that breakfast is more leisurely but certainly the Shrewsbury made sausages, the genuine Bury black pudding, eggs from a mile down the road and the delicacy Staffordshire oatcakes have not been subjected to any funny business before arriving as your wonderful breakfast. Regards, Froggy John Dear Missannajobelle, Thank you for taking the time to review Goldstone amongst the stratospheric and eclectic list of wonderful establishments you have visited. I am sorry you were disappointed by breakfast but we are all over Goldstone as a family but I would be foolhardy to remotely suggest we get everything absolutely perfect. We try and will keep trying, very much as the Daily Mail Hotel Inspector reported. With best wishes and apologies, John, Sue, Victoria, Katie and all at Goldstone x
