Spent a comfortable night, the room was clean and pleasantly old fashioned. Sadly I didn't get to visit the restaurtant about which I hear good things. Everyone was very nice and helpful and it has the most lovely gardens.

Visited Redditch for a couple of days and stopped at a fantastic cosy hotel. Newly refurbished and everything is great. Stand out items are the restaurant and the nicest staff I've ever had the pleasure of staying with in a UK hotel.

The Sunday lunch was sublime. We had 2 roast beef and a chicken dinner. Hubby doesn't like any red in his beef, the waitress and chef went out of their way to make sure it was cooked to his liking. You are given extra CRISPY roast potatoes, veg and the best red cabbage I have ever tasted. The chocolate tart...

We enjoyed Sunday dinner and pre-drinks on Easter Sunday in lovely surroundings. The meal was freshly prepared, beautifully presented and generous. The staff were attentive without being invasive which was just right. Although the restaurant is fairly expensive the overall experience was great value. We're certain that The Orangery will become a very popular venue to eat and drink. We...

We were so excited to try a new venue in town but left disappointed and having deducted thirty pounds or so from the final bill. The Orangery at the Old Rectory has just reopened and the interior is smart, comfortable and modern. A great venue which is why my review isn't a 2 star. Cocktails were good, as was the...

Stayed in room 1. Has apparently been recently redecorated, I wouldn't use the decorator as the paper hanging very poor quality. New carpet, but cheap - and not in keeping with the history of the house. Four poster bed and furniture very good. TV dismal, I guess a 32 inch 15 year old, could do with upgrading. Breakfast very poor....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
THE HOUSE Discover our hidden gem and enjoy a truly memorable stay or event experience! The Old Rectory House Hotel is a privately owned quintessential English country house hotel in Redditch. Tucked away in the Heart of England, The Old Rectory House offers a relaxing & comfortable venue for work & play. Our quintessential Elizabethan & Georgian House radiates charm & peace, providing the perfect setting for all family occasions including weddings, christenings, birthday parties and funeral receptions and ideal for conferences, business meetings, seminars, training sessions and team building events. THE GROUNDS Our house sits in the heart of three acres of wooded gardens, with hundreds of plants and trees. Many of our larger trees including the stunning English Oaks, the Portuguese Laurels and the Weeping Ash were planted over 200 years ago. With our very own croquet lawn at the front of the house, its landscape is a perfect setting for picnicking, partying, pampering and pondering, and although it can feel blissfully set apart from the bustle of everyday life, it's within remarkably easy reach of many of the Warwickshire & Worcestershire's most exciting highlights. The team at The Old Rectory House know the estate and area like the back of their hands, so whether you need a recommendation for a picnic spot, directions for a nature walk, or a map for an all-day ramble (marked with the best local pub stops, naturally), just pop into the House for a chat. THE LOCATION The Old Rectory House Hotel is situated within a short drive of many major English tourist attractions including Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, The NEC, Resort World, NIA, The Cotswolds and Birmingham Bull Ring Shopping Centre. It is also a short walk from the Arrow Valley Country Park, a beautiful lake and country park where you can take an easy stroll, have a serious jog around the lake or arrange to go fishing and sailing. Birmingham International Airport, Resort World, NEC & Gentings Arena can be accessed by car within 20 minutes using the M42 motorway network which is 5 minute drive from the hotel. Bicester Shopping Village is only 55 minutes from the Old Rectory Hotel London is only 1 hour 30 minutes by train which makes our hotel a perfect retreat for holiday international tourists. THE HISTORY The Old Rectory House Hotel is probably the best kept secret in the Worcestershire county, it has stood on this site for several hundreds of years and has a wealth of historical connections. The house lies between the original Roman built Icknield Street, which runs along the far boundary, and the monastic carp lakes at the rear of the property. The Doomsday Book lists a building on this site in 1086, during which time Lady Godiva's son was Lord of the Manor. The Great Grandson of Sir Christopher Wren lived in the house for over forty years and made a number of alterations in that time. He completely modernised the original Elizabethan house in 1812 by adding a Georgian facade to the front elevation of the building. ... more   less
