We had been to Shrewsbury before but not. I had read reviews about the hotel and they were a bit mixed so I was a bit worried. However I needn't have been. Although we arrived early we were able to leave our luggage in the office and our car was taken to the hotel's car park by the valet service.... More

We have been visiting the prince rupert for about 8 years now. Every christmas on an annual shopping trip, and a night here and there during the year. I CANNOT recommend this place enough. The olde world charm, of the building the town & the decor. It's tearooms next door, chambers restaurant and favourites too. The lovely gentlemen porter, who... More

An unprepossessing exterior, and a very dated interior, but the service was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was marvellous! The room we had was rather small and dated in decor, but tea and coffee making facilities, comfy bed and decent bathroom with large fluffy towels. Perfectly located within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. Altogether a good... More

My partner and I chose the Pince Rupert Hotel as the place to stay when we celebrated our civil partnership in Shrewsbury recently. We stayed in the Prince Rupert Suite which was charming - comfortable 4 poster and quirky ensuite with an amazing deep bath tub. The hotel has loads of character so I would urge anyone thinking of staying... More

We stayed here on business because it was the only place left. Looking at their website, we thought it would be nice. The room we stayed in looks like it was decorated in the 70s and hasn't been touched since. The bathtub runs non-stop. The floors are creaky and you can hear everything everyone is doing in any room around... More

We recently paid £175.00 for one night at the Prince Rupert and for that, yes, we had certain expectations. Expectations, which, sadly, were unmet. The hotel is a bit difficult to get to by car, but not a major problem. Valet parking was appreciated, warm welcome, we were offered a glass of sherry on arrival. And then it all went... More

Stayed at Prince Rupert Hotel on a Saturday night at the end of March 2014. Had a lovely room, the Princess Elizabeth Suite, comfortable bed and bright refurbished bathroom. The valet parking was excellent and when we left, our car was returned to the front entrance of the hotel much quicker than the 30 minutes we were asked to allow... More

We booked this hotel for a short break in the centre of Shrewsbury. We had the Frederick the fifth suite which is in the 15th Century part of the building. It has just had a new bathroom suite installed which was very modern for the 15th Century! There is a beauty salon, mini gym and Jacuzzi in the hotel. The... More

The hotel was in a great location, although a little difficult for the GPS to find. I wish we had used the location Fish Street as recommended in an earlier review. We had the Princess Charlotte Suite which overlooked a beautiful Tudor building and St Alkmond's church (depending on which angle you sat at the bedroom table). There was also... More
