Lucroft was comfortable, inexpensive and situated within easy walking distance of the town centre . Staff were obliging and helpful. However we were in Room 6, adjacent to the corridor's fire door, and sleep quality was impaired. Breakfasts were tasty though a bit Spartan.

Prior to visiting I'd emailed the hotel who were very helpful regarding parking and we also had good service throughout our stay. The hotel is in a great location, although blink and you will miss the entrance! We stayed with friends and had a really good afternoon and evening in the towns bars and restaurants. The problem occurred when we... More

Housed on the upper floors of a Tudor style building, this guest house has an attractive exterior and is centrally located for shopping, restaurant and bars. It also is reasonably priced and less than the Premier Inn around the corner. The bed was comfortable with crisp clean linen, tea, coffee and biscuits and kettle provided, also towels. However the macerating... More

We stayed one night after Easter for visiting friends. It is very conveniently situated near the train station though we did struggle to find it as it is above shops. We had a fantastic check in and very welcoming. She even offered to carry our cases. We had a single and twin room booked. The rooms were clean and tidy... More

Shrewsbury is a very interesting town and if you visit it, you should think of a place to live in - that is comfortable, close to everything and will not spoil your holiday experience, and Lucroft is your choice. I am really glad I decided to select this place. Best price/quality ratio, beautiful old timbered building, 1 minute to Castle,... More

I had a small, perfectly formed room. Beautifully Clean with everything I needed plus a very neat bathroom with excellent shower! 10/10 for design and use of space. Secondly glazing kept any noise from the Main Street out and I was able to open the window for some fresh air. Minutes from the station and ideally suited to exploring medieval/Tudor... More

We spent a night here after going out for dinner in Shrewsbury. After finding that other B&Bs in the centre of town were very expensive, I was a little concerned about what I was going to find here given the low price, however it really was excellent value and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was small but very clean... More
