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

It was good to see that the place is being... More

This is a very old building, granted, however, we have stayed in older with exquisite facilities and overall quality. This hotel does boast a great location, that is where it ends. Everywhere we saw suffered with major damp. The room was tatty, staples holding the wallpaper up on the ceiling, bath panel hanging out, skirting board hanging off the wall.... More

Stayed a night. When I arrrived, the barman didn't offer to take my rucksack to my room (though I am 71 and using a stick). Reception a bit sketchy. Rather petty 'rule' re no food in room - even a sarnie which I happened to have - I agree with another reviewer that though breakfast was good, it wasn't easy... More

Hotel has seen better days and needs updateing, Breckfast is full English and is fine. Best thing about hotel is the location, good view of... More
