A great overnight stay
My wife and I stayed in room 9 recently. It was a nice room just outside main reception. We had the 6 course taster menu and every course was brilliant!! We have been to many michelin starred restaurants and this is one of the best meals i have had. The english breakfast also was very well made but there could have been more of it!! The staff were friendly and attentive throughout our entire stay. We would definitely consider staying again.

Beautiful Rural Retreat
We stayed overnight at the Old Downton lodge en route from London to the Lake District on a driving holiday in the UK. It is quite remotely situated some distance from Ludlow in a beautiful rural setting. We dined in the restaurant where a tasting menu is served - we were worried that our small appetites would not do justice to a lot of food but the portions were not large and we enjoyed the dinner and wine very much. The room had a rustic appearance but was very well appointed with modern fixtures. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay in the Shropshire countryside.

Brilliant place!
Fabulous hotel with superb hospitality and customer service. We enjoyed an excellent 9 course tasting menu in the restaurant which for any foodie, is a must. We’ll definitely be visiting again the spring/summer!
