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

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.
