Adrian and Rosemary are perfect hosts who have created the perfect B&B. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they treat their guests like friends. Breakfast (and dinner) are beautifully prepared and presented with fresh ingredients and good home cooking. The Old Rectory itself is like a little oasis of calm in the middle of Telford - tucked away in the old village of Stirchley. The rooms are very clean and very homely. Two things make the bedrooms unusual in my experience. First, the Old Rectory is the only B&B I've ever stayed in that has electric blankets and current editions of lifestyle magazines in the rooms. We have stayed here twice in the last few weeks and thoroughly enjoyed staying in what feels like home as soon as you walk through the door (which, by the way, had potted narcissi in the entry porch - so you are greeted with wafts of scent). Add to this Rosemary's homemade shortcake and you have...well, I think you understand.
If you need a place to stay in Telford that has character, style and the personal touch, I'd go nowhere else. More expensive than the budget hotel chains, but worth every penny.
