We booked this hotel mainly for it's location and price. Having read some reviews we were a little dubious but decided to stay anyway (two nights). Our initial impression upon arrival was that we had made a big mistake but we proceeded to check in and were handed our room key and parking permit by a friendly, helpful member of... More

Recently spent 2 nights at the Tontine. Was in room 8, the second floor per the English (third for the US). Great view out the window of the iron bridge directly across the street. While the room was not fancy, I was happy with it. I arrived on a Bank Holiday Monday so traffic and parking in the town was... More

Just returned from a one night stay here. Firstly location excellent. Couldn't really be better. Plus parking is via a few permit so again excellent. Reception welcoming so again no complaints. However I couldn't award this hotel 4 stars which is 'very good' as it's very run down. It's a really old building the exterior looks ok but inside its... More

We booked before reading trip advisor reviews and were slightly concerned once we did this. What we found was a hotel in a superb location directly opposite the bridge. The room was clean and a reasonable size, the beds were comfortable and the linens clean and fresh. The bathroom was clean although the fixtures were a bit rickety. There was... More

So disappointed with our stay at the tontine hotel. Unfriendly staff with little customer service skills and not at all helpful. The inside of the hotel was in desperate need of a good clean in particular the breakfast room where cobwebs swung from the ceiling. During breakfast the waitress was hardly there and when she did come to serve us... More

It's great to be able to sit down to a Sunday lunch where you can bring man's best friend too! We visited several weeks ago and again today. Both times we have enjoyed a substantial carvery where they don't skimp on the meat and all of the veg are perfect -no soggy overcooked mush here! Even our dog was treated... More

Location is excellent for exploring Ironbridge and surrounding area. The hotel staff are perfectly polite. The accomodation is very old and tired, and it is not a particularly comfortable stay as a result. It is an average 2/3 star accomodation, and so your expectations need to be set accordingly as a result. It isnt particularly cheap but it does welcome... More

This was an excellent location for us to stay , however the a Tontine is an old building and in need of an update. Room 2 was dated but very clean,the breakfast was lovely. Custmors from the bar were standing by the entrance smoking and swearing when we arrived back . This is not what guests need to hear .

Very good location for all the local attractions and a great position overlooking the ironbridge but such a shame that a grand, beautiful building like the Tontine should be allowed to fall into such disrepair. We stayed in a family room no 11 at the top of the building, it was dingy, dirty and downright dangerous if you have small... More
