Such a lovely place to stay - really nicely set out, really clean, gorgeous rooms, powerful shower and comfy beds. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly, considering I wasn't well - can't recommend enough.

We chose to stay here for a red letter Christmas present and we're delighted with our choice. The hotel is tastefully decorated throughout, with a lot of thought gone into the detail. The staff are very welcoming, pleasant and attentive. The menu is imaginative and our food was absolutely delicious. I've never seen blackcurrant and liquorice ice cream anywhere else...

Having stayed elsewhere for the Shrewsbury Flower Show we decided on a change for 2016 and found this place through Bookings.com. From the time we arrived we were treated to polite staff, a quick and efficient check in and a very comfortable and well furnished room with all comforts, biscuits, chocolates, tea and coffee and really comfortable beds.

Sorry to say that after booking this supposed 5 star hotel for our anniversary weekend, I was left feeling disappointed. Pictures on website are very cleverly taken! Right on a main road, our room was tiny (rm 9) and roadside so very noisy, room was very hot, bathroom was like walking into a cupboard. Decor was lovely though. Breakfast was...

Came over to Telford to visit friends and they booked us in for an evening meal. From the minute we entered 1830hrs to the minute we left 2300hrs the atmosphere was terrific, very cosy and relaxed.
