Elegant B&B in the town's former library with friendly, welcoming hosts. Perfectly prepared breakfasts and a pop-up dinner by a local chef added to our enjoyment of this first-class retreat in the heart of town. Several nearby museums tell the story of the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in this area. We stayed four days and didn't want to leave.

Ideally situated in the centre of Ironbridge, this B&B provides the perfect short stay - even if you are not interested in the town and its attractions! Sarah and Tim are consummate hosts, professional yet friendly and extremely helpful. After settling in, we were given tea and the most delicious cake in the garden. Later on, Tim advised us on...

A great welcome on arrival. We were given a pass that allowed us to park for free in the town. After 5 minutes settling in we were given tea and magnificent cake in the garden. There was a complimentary glass of wine and a little conversation before we went out on the first night. Tim gave us some great recommendations... More

We stayed 2 nights and had very enjoyable stay. Friendly and helpful host, use of the garden, very nicely decorated and good breakfasts. Very central in ironbridge, yet quiet. We stayed at room at the top of the house, which though quite small had been recently decorated and had a nice view of the garden.

We work very hard to build and maintain our high standards and reputation as every other Tripadvisor comment on The Library House confirms. Sadly we can't please everybody and there are two sides to every argument...... More

We've just spent 2 nights at the Library House and can honestly say it's the best B&B we've ever stayed in! Spotlessly clean with tastefully decorated rooms.

Three years on and this place is still amazing. Lovely couple Tim and Sarah now run it. A lovely touch was the bottle of bubbly Sarah brought up to us to celebrate our evening. Stayed in the hardy room which was lovely and breakfast was fantastic
