After reading the reviews prior to staying here I could see mixed reviews, when we arrived the owner was very welcoming and helpful! The rooms are decorated to a high standard and for the money I think they could charge more! Our room was spotless and smelling fresh! Also very warm considering the old Windows! Perfect location! Yes the noise... More

Stayed here for one night on a girls shopping weekend. Excellent location, approx 2 min walk from the station and 5 min walk from the town centre. Rooms clean and cozy with a lovely street view and ensuing bathroom. Staff were really friendly and allowed us to leave our bags the following day. Excellent value for money also, would recommend...

Our room was small and cosy. The location was excellent with close proximity to shops, restaurants and pubs. Our breakfast was prepared by the manageress and was of a high standard, Parking is provided close to the hotel. This compact and economic hotel is recommended.

This is great value. The premier inn around the corner is almost twice the price, but Lucroft is just as good, if not better. We had a great nights sleep here, and the room was light and nicely decorated. The bathroom was also very nice with a good shower (important!) I'd stay here again for sure.

Stayed in the Lucroft for 3 nights in August, carpet in room was dirty and stained. Our headboard had black hairs on it. I realise its a cheap hotel and its the only place we could find at the last minute but if they only spent a bit of money on painting, changing the carpet and cleaning the place would... More

I spent 4 nights at the Lucroft Guest House during a recent sightseeing trip to Shrewsbury and the surrounding area. I had a single attic room on the top floor for an extremely reasonable price. My room was lovely - quaint, comfortable and clean, with plenty of room to move around in and a window overlooking the street. And the... More

This is a wonderful little hotel situated just a few minutes away from the railway station and in a most picturesque part of beautiful Shrewsbury. My en suite room was perfectly adequate, comfortable and clean.

Spent five nights here. Friendly, helpful staff. Rooms a little tired, but clean and quite cheerful. Tasty breakfast. If you insist on Tibetan yak scratchings for your breakfast, you'll probably not find them here. A fair bit of street noise, since right next to a very busy road and the rail station and drunken revellers seem to make their way... More
