One of the loveliest places I've ever stayed! The castle was stunning and it is set in awesome grounds. Will definitely go back again! Breakfast was lovely. The service we received in the hotel was excellent. We chose to stay here as it was close to Shrewsbury which is a lovely place and well worth a visit.
