Iron bridge is a world class Heritage Site, and the Library House is world class accommodation befitting such a location, the warm friendly atmosphere and service is exceptional. We parked up the car and walked to the local visitor sites, strolls along the river banks, and quirky local shops, four days and only scratched the surface with a return later...

At the end of our stay we couldn't think of anything that would have improved our visit. Everything was excellent - Millie the gorgeous dog, the central location, the breakfast, tea and cake on arrival, the spotless room, White Company stuff - perfect. But other B and Bs can have all these things (except maybe Millie) - what really sets...

I agree with other reviewers that the new owners are carrying on with the style and level of service received before when I stayed twice in 2013. Tim is most hospitable (Sarah, I only met briefly as I was leaving) Milton is a very comfortable room with delightful Toile de Joue fabrics a Louis XV style chaise longue, good shower...

The Library House has new owners, Tim & Sarah. We had stayed there just a year ago and we were hoping that our stay woudl be just as pleasant as the previous time. We weren't disappointed. Tim was the perfect host and greeted us with a cup of tea swiftly followed by a glass of wine. He explained that his...

We only stayed 1 night at the Library House its a perfect B&B, ideally located in the centre of Ironbridge. There are many excellent pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. We stayed in the Eliot room which was very spacious, comfortable and what a comfy bed. The breakfasts were superbly best full English ever. Tim was great and we...

Tim and Sarah were the perfect hosts. Even before we got there Tim directed us in as the flood barriers were up. On arrival we were greeted with a cup of tea and home made cake. The Library House itself is a perfect B&B, ideally located in the centre of Ironbridge with views to the famous bridge. Also there are...

Excellent B&B fantastic location, super hosts going the 'extra mile' offering home made cake, tea, and wine! Tim and Sarah make you feel at home instantly and we could easily have adopted little Millie their dog! The breakfast was amazing and so was our room, we stayed in the Eliot and the King-sized bed was the most comfortable we've experienced....

Tim and Sarah are the nicest hosts you could ever wish to meet. We were totally spoiled over our weekend stay with tea and cake on tap and so easy to chat with. It was like spending the weekend with old friends. We stayed in the Eliot room which was spotlessly clean, comfortable and homely. The breakfasts are superb, cooked...

We were looking for a decent couples' retreat for Valentine's weekend and were treated to so much more at the Library House, right in the centre of Ironbridge. Tim, Sarah and Millie the Jack Russell were outstanding hosts, welcoming us with a glass of wine each upon arrival in front of a warm fire. Stayed in the Eliot Room, which...
