Not ideally the time to be residents in a hotel but was necessary due to some water difficulties at home. Great welcome and wonderful precautions in place for the pandemic. Wonderful large comfortable bedroom with magnificent shower. The real let down was the food. The quality was dire yet the prices are typical hotel prices. All convenience foods f poor quality. The chicken burger was processed meat, the chips were hard and cold, the noodles were disgusting. There was a marked difference on Monday from over the weekend as there was a Chef on duty but still no freshly prepared goods. Intriguing that it’s the same menu and same pricing policy 8 days in the week. Eating in your bedroom is far from ideal however know that social distancing and protocols need to be in place. The food needs to be addressed. The online ordering is fantastic and works brilliantly, but the quality is atrocious and really let’s the place down. Specials advertised, but still low quality convenience foods and don’t justify the cost.

1st I was charged £90+ for my room. I had to find a hotel at short notice so thought nothing of the charge I was very tiered and always trust the rooms to be great. The room should have been deep cleaned before i booked in. the carpet was stained bathroom was ok. desperate for sleep. I just got changed for bed. Next morning I was horrified to discover some kind of spillage on the main desk. Lucky for me i had not placed any belongings on the desk. When I complained at the desk I pointed out that I had never stayed at such a filthy place. I point out that I often stay at a large chain of hotels which are about £50. the rooms are always clean and tidy. To easily I was offered a refund of £45. which makes me think It was not the first complaint. I will not be advising anyone to stay here.

Spent a night here to visit Shrewsbury and break up a long journey from North to South. Chose this hotel for its convenience to get to, free parking and reasonable price. Despite some other reviews I read, the room I had was in very good shape and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast, during the Covid-19 period, was well organised and good. The bar was very simple and could be improved by including a bitter or cider on tap to go alongside the lager. I chose to walk into Shrewsbury centre a couple of times during my stay. It's very straight forward and the latter half of the walk includes some great sights. It is however, over a mile, but this hotel is placed closer to its town than many others are - within what I was looking for. I'd certainly choose it again.

Arrived to be given two rooms that had been deep cleaned!!. Pubic hairs on low shelf and floor of toilet and urine. Carpets that did not look seen a hover in some time. Spiders nest in corners of the room. Filthy dirty toilet floors that smelt of stale urine. Moldy bed bases. Air conditioner unit that looked like it had been installed by a five year old. Fobbed of with five soft drink vouchers. Head office will not reply to emails about this. By trading standards will take my complaint seriously. No cleaning standards at all.
