With a rich history that dates back thousands of years and includes some notable guests such as Mary Queen of Scots who was under house arrest in the keeper-ship of the Shrewsbury’s. The Old Hall now stands as one of the spa town’s most popular places to stay.

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect, personal and organised wedding.Right from the start Vicky was amazing. So thorough at every single meeting and documented everything so precisely. Vicky was so friendly yet remained very professional throughout the whole process. Organising a wedding and bringing up a newborn baby could easily have been a stressful ordeal, but having the amazing support from Vicky made it so seamless and stress free. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart.

The staff...
The staff, service, flexibility and quality we received from the Old Hall was outstanding from start to finish - I would score them 11/10 on all counts if I could. Vicky, the hotel's wedding coordinator, was particularly excellent; she is professional, knowledgeable and flexible and nothing is too much trouble. Our wedding was absolutely perfect from start to finish, the food was amazing and every request we had was met. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vicky and the Old Hall.

We could not recommend Old Hall Hotel enough as a wedding venue - our day was absolutely perfect and that was in no small part down to the excellent staff and facilities Old Hall has to offer. Our wedding coordinator Emma was fantastic - very knowledgeable, responsive and so patient with us despite our ever-changing plans! Our guests absolutely loved the different spaces the hotel has to offer, and its rich history. The food was delicious, and the portions very generous. Thank you Old Hall!
