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

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...
