I stayed here for a weekend in Shrewsbury and on the whole was very impressed. My room was clean and comfortable, the owners and staff were all very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good (I don't eat meat and there was a good choice for non-meat eaters but I was told that the full English was very...

Stayed for 6 nights while visiting Shropshire area. This is a family owned and run hotel in a Georgian building so retains a lot of the charm and quirks of that style building. Room was larger than expected and overlooked the backyard which was available for guest use. Breakfast was very good with fresh fruit salad, cereal, yoghurt, juice and...

Have used this hotel several times before and been very pleased. Hotel is ideally placed, being on the edge of the town centre and within an easy walk, although some of the hills (e.g. Wyle Cop) are steep. Comfortable bed and spotlessly clean room and bathroom. The breakfasts featured a good choice; everything we had was good quality and well-prepared....

My expectations were not high. 1 night, for business, £60 rate, a town centre hotel. My expectations were not anywhere near being met! If it were just the dingy flock wallpaper, the large cobwebs on the ceiling, the mint green bathroom, none too clean, with cracked tiles, or the towels so ancient and threadbare it was like drying myself on...

great location for us - a family of four with two youngish teenage sons and a red setter - fairly plain but clean and comfortable room for us and friendly owners. Stayed for one night en route from Reading to Wales. The breakfast was tasty and the whole stay well priced. Shrewsbury is a very atttractive town with lots of...

Stayed June 2012. We were on our regimental weekend over Friday to Sunday. I would say an ideal soldiers rest. The owners are lovely and looked after us really well. I would recommend this place to all my Light Division friends. Lovely breakfast too. 💗💗💗💗💗

Our family and extended family stayed here for a party and were given a very friendly welcome. Being able to park right outside was a great bonus. The rooms are pretty small and the bathroom lighting was not great but it was more than made up for by the copious amounts of tea that was provided for our big party!...

I chose this hotel because it is within walking distance of the RR station & sights. That said, the walk from the station is uphill the first half, past the castle & library, so be prepared or take a taxi. There is free parking on site & a small bar, nice breakfast room with small garden. Single room was very...

Lovely hotel in a great location. Stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. The room was nice all the amenities we required. Breakfast was nice, a good selection. The hotel is close to the centre of Shrewsbury so was an easy walk to the shops and restaurants but also close to the river for a lovely stroll. Would recommend this...
