Frankly, rather loathe to let word out about this little wonderful little bolt hole in pretty, undiscovered Wem Shropshire (home of the sweet pea). Have posted some pix I've taken here on Tripadvisor too. I owe the owners Wendy and Gary a favour, however, for how well they looked after me past couple of nights when I checked in at... More

Aston Lodge is a bed and breakfast in the small town of Wem, north of Shrewsbury, just over the level crossing from the town center. The accommodation is in the converted stable block and breakfast is served by the owners in the large front room of the house where they live. The hosts were welcoming, the bedrooms were comfortable and... More

We stayed here while visiting relatives and it was just lovely. Private, clean room with a comfy bed, followed by a great breakfast served by friendly people. Room was the perfect temperature with an ultra clean bathroom. Can't recommend it highly enough, FAB!

Ideally located, just outside the village and handy for other towns in the area. Breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked by Gary, from a simple boiled egg to a full blown English and anything in between - choice is... More

Gary and Wendy, the propietors, were very pleasant and helpful. They supplied us with much needed train and bus schedules. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices but would have liked it served a little later than 8:30. The rooms were immaculate though a little cold. We attempted to turn up the heat but with no success. Fortunately, we... More

We stayed here in February while in Wem for a family party. The room, approached through a separate entrance in a courtyard, was tastefully decorated, well appointed, spotless and fresh. The bed was very comfortable and the shower hot and efficient. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided, along with free wifi. The breakfast was superb, with lots of choice... More

My wife has just returned traumatised from a stay in this guest house. She woke to find the owner of this establishment standing in her bedroom at 7:00 in the morning. When questioned he was evasive and tried to laugh it off and tried to blame a resident ghost........ She will not return to this establishment ever... Creepy......

I can't recommend this accommodation enough, the room was lovely, the breakfast was great and the staff are friendly and very accommodating and helpful with a great sense of humour. It is so close to the train station which was perfect for me but is really easy to find and just down the road from the town centre.
