This was a magic, last minute find - very pretty location, lovely hotel with the most comfortable single bed I've ever slept in! (Helps that it was 4ft wide!). We were so well looked after - nothing was too much bother, including collecting fresh peppermint out go the herb garden for a post-meal digestif! Looking forward to a return visit soon.

Room Tip: If travelling solo, worth booking the Exec Single room - lovely view of gardens.

We were staying in Grinshill for a week and booked Sunday lunch for four people. We were greeted by pleasant staff and shown to the lounge to have a pre-lunch drink and choose from the menu. We were shown to our table in the conservatory and offered more drinks. Our starters were very nice and good sized portions. The main courses were good and the vegetables were served by the waitress. All the staff were attentive and pleasant. We all had an enjoyable lunch and took a stroll in the gardens afterwards. The hotel itself is what I would describe as a large Victorian building with decor which reflects the era.

Recently attended a wedding here and it was very nice. The staff seemed attentive and very friendly except for when we were kept waiting for a drink in the bar. The meal was satisfactory and ovreall it was a very pretty and nice place for a wedding.

We stayed here for 2 nights on 28th/29th of May. As you approach the hotel up the drive you just know it is going to be lovely inside.Everything is first class. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The room we had was delightful, the bed was really comfortable and the food was excellent. We can't wait to go back there again.

Room Tip: We had a twin bed room which overlooked some of the gardens, although if you looked to the side ther...

Just returned from a 2 Night stay at this excellent hotel. Just on the outskirts of Wem you could be a million miles away in some remote part of the world. Wonderful pleasant gardens in a very peaceful location. The hotel is very comfortable, clean and friendly. The staff were outstanding polite and nothing was to much trouble. The food was of a very high standard and good value for money. We used the hotel as a base to travel to Shrewsbury for a day. With the railway station only 10 minutes walk from the hotel it really was a fantastic mid week break.

We could not have had a better weekend break. The hotel is beautiful together with the gardens. The staff could not have been more helpful and we wanted for nothing. Hope we get a chance to visit again.
