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

Very convenient location a stone's throw from the station and the centre of town; downside of this is being on a fairly busy road, but that didn't bother me. Really friendly staff. Lovely room with lots of character, spotlessly clean. Homemade muesli and great coffee for breakfast. I was able to use the parking space they have use of just... More

Perfectly located near railway station and short walk to town centre. I arrived early and left very early but no problems. Very helpful hosts and secure parking for my bicycle. Rooms basic but spotless and characterful. Thank you, Cristel - will be back.

Stayed at the Lucroft on a Saturday night away from the party I was with due to costs. The Lucroft is in an ideal location for parking and public transport. The room which faced the main road was clean with a great shower. Considering I got in late the noise from the street wasn't too loud but I guessit wouldn't... More

My wife and I stayed here while attending the Shrewsbury Folk festival. It is what it is - a basic guesthouse / B & B. We had the family room which was a large size, although the bathroom was tiny. It was sparsely furnished but clean. Full English breakfast was included and was good. Note: it's in a 1 way... More
