After a day exploring the many attractions of the county town of Shrewsbury we drove a few miles to the village of Cressage and to the marvellous Old Hall. It must be one of the most luxurious B&B’s anywhere. The welcome was as good as the wonderfully restored and appointed Hall. What could be better after our exploring than a pot of tea, home made orange cake and a view over lovely gardens to the River Severn below and the countryside beyond. Perfect. We are moving on from The Old Hall, Cressage B&B today after a breakfast that more than matched the welcome and luxurious surroundings.

The Old Hall is superb! Our room was lovely with magnificent views of the Wrekin and the River Severn. It was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean with good quality linen and towels. The breakfast was delicious and well-cooked and presented, with a good choice of items on the menu. Robin and Louise were very welcoming and could not have been more helpful. They lent us maps and guides and gave us good advice on routes for the (long!) walks which we did from the house. The Old Hall is a beautiful house with a long history and we highly recommend it. We shall definitely stay there again.

We were badly in need of a restful break when we arrived at The Old Hall Cressage to a warm welcome and a beautiful, most comfortable room. We stayed four nights in the Wrekin room and became increasingly appreciative of how thoughtfully the room has been arranged, how beautiful the view over the Severn and surrounding countryside was and how comfortable we felt. In this attractive and interesting house the rooms all had charming arrangements of garden flowers from the extensive and wonderful grounds. Breakfasts were delicious, various options were all beautifully cooked. Louise and Robin were ideal hosts in their own home, unfailingly welcoming, helpful and relaxed but unobtrusive. We do hope that we have another opportunity to stay at The Old Hall, it was a perfect treat

The Old Hall is a true country house with an extensive beautiful garden running down to the River Severn. It has its own woodland, and a marvellous view of the Wrekin. Robin and Louise were extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. They supplied maps and walking guides; and gave us ideas of particular walks, pubs and restaurants, and other local information. They left no stone unturned, served a delicious breakfast, and gave us homemade cake in the afternoon. Robin has even written a booklet on the history of the Old Hall back to the Norman Conquest, which we read while sitting in their glorious guest drawing-room.

Four of us stayed at the Old Hall recently for a special trip down memory lane. It was a delight in every respect. Beautifully modernized rooms and public area, the grounds and views are spectacular and hosts Robin and Louise could not be more welcoming to their beautiful home. Breakfast was a delight too! I really could not fault our stay in any way.

Great place to stay. Looking forward to returning soon. Robin and Louise were so helpful. The rooms and house is so nice you cannot ask for more. It was better than staying in a hotel. Location is great with great views of the surrounding area. See you soon.

We had a glorious long weekend at the Old Hall, a fascinating house and a lovely home. The Wrekin room and the drawing room are so beautifully presented and the garden is fantastic with spectacular views around every corner. Louise's home-made cake was delicious, and chocolates and fresh milk in the fridge each day was a lovely touch. Robin and Louise were so welcoming and friendly, they made us feel like we were house guests. Thank you for a lovely stay, you have created a truly special place and we'll certainly be back when we get the chance

We loved our stay here. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were boutique level beautiful. The grounds were stunningly tranquil and the hosts incredibly thoughtful, welcoming and warm. The cake was gratefully received and thoroughly appreciated. Such a hidden gem! Thank you Louise & robin, just the break away we needed.

We had a wonderful two night stay at The Old Hall. The Wrekin Room was really well equipped and we had everything we needed. Breakfast was also brilliant with a great choice of food. The Old Hall is a fantastic building in a truly breathtaking garden, but what really makes The Old Hall special is Robin and Louise. Nothing was too much trouble and they just go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. Would highly recommend and we are already looking for a reason to come back and stay again.

The impressive view of the Old Hall was matched by the welcome from our congenial hosts, inviting us to tea and cake. The comfortable guest lounge has has fine furnishings, books and pictures. The Wrekin bedroom has a view across the garden and the river, to the Wrekin Hill. Tea and coffee with the refinement of a jug of milk within. Robin and Louise are courteously friendly and helpful with their advice about Shropshire.

This is a truly lovely place to stay. The house is in a stunning location overlooking the River Severn with extensive grounds to wander through. The welcome from Robin and Louise was warm and friendly and we were offered tea and cake - sadly we’d just had tea at a friend’s house so had to pass on that! The bedroom was stylish and comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a perfect overnight stay provided. Breakfast was in the conservatory overlooking the gardens and was nicely presented with a great choice. There is use of a beautiful lounge if you want to sit and read or just chill. Would heartily recommend this place and will definitely be back.

If serenity is defined as the quality of being peaceful and calm then the Old Hall Cressage takes you there. This house and its owners are unrivalled in their wonderful approach and ability to deliver what can only be described as one of the best bed and breakfast accommodations in the country.
The Hall is stunningly beautiful with period features and wonderful gardens, which all come as part of the stay as guests are welcome to stroll around the gardens and wooded locations. The rooms are fresh and immaculate in both décor and cleanliness with fabulous views through to the river Severn and the front laws and borders.
The breakfasts were of top quality, cooked using local produce and fresh variety in the menu, the offer of tea and cake in the afternoon was also much appreciated.
Chances of finding such a house and accommodation is either down to extremely assiduous trawling or mere serendipity…do not miss out on this one. We will not, and will certainly be returning, hopefully on several occasions with family and friends.

Stunning house, great hosts, the perfect place for a perfect getaway. Louise and Robin have thought of everything to make your stay amazing. The breakfast was superb and with great choice for every taste. Fantastic bedrooms with great views over the river Severn.
We cannot thank Louise and Robin enough and we have re booked and we are looking forward to our visit.
