We took advantage of a Living Social deal to take a short break at this, which is not that far from where we live. The hotel is located just on the outskirts of Wem, a small pleasant Shropshire town but with not much of interest. The hotel is approached by a short drive through very attractive and well kept grounds. Reception was efficient, friendly and welcoming. Our room (No3) was very clean, well equipped and furnished in keeping with a Georgean rectory. The hotel only has 15 rooms but despite that has an excellent kitchen. We thought the food particularly good. The menu was fairly limited but had enough choice to satisfy most tastes. Breakfast had a good range on the buffet table, including fresh half grapefruits which I haven't seen in a long while and this was followed by the usual range of full English breakfast cooked items. We felt very relaxed in this friendly and clean hotel so it was ideal for a short break. Checkout was efficient and we were given a voucher for a return visit on the same terms as the deal we were on - good marketing. I have noted some negative comments from other reviewers but can't agree re service, professionalism etc. Obviously my comments refer to the room we stayed in. We will cetainly return.
