Located in the centre near plenty of bars, restaurants etc. The room I had was clean and adequate. The bathroom was again, clean and perfectly good. Didn't eat a meal in the hotel but breakfast was good if not a little small. Overall the hotel is good and in a great position.

Stayed here for one night ahead of a visit to the Eisteddfod. Once we'd overcome the one way system around Shrewsbury and managed to arrive, the initial perception was of a run down period property in need of some tidying. The welcome did little to change this - the staff in reception were less than engaging! However, they took our... More

Annual visit to an ancient market town found us in Shrewsbury - stayed centrally in the Prince Rupert Hotel this is a medieval town with lots of history, small alleyways and lots of small independent/quirky, high quality quirky shops. The Prince Rupert whilst a medieval structure has been sympathetically refurbished throughout with modern bedrooms and bathrooms. The town is a... More

Hotel phoned us an hour or two later to advise us that a double was now available and they wanted to know if we'd like to see... More

Location could not be better, right in the middle of the town. Our room, on the first floor, was at the front of the building. As it was mid-week we had no problem with night time noise but the dray did arrive about 6.30am closely followed by the street cleaning truck! Luckily this was only one day out of three.... More

The Prince Rupert Hotel is packed full of character and is situated in a great location. The staff are fantastic, both friendly and attentive. We stayed in the Prince Edward Suite. The room was unbelievably quiet (didn't hear a whisper out of the wedding parties staying) and the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever stayed... More

This is the second time our company has booked me into this hotel. The last time was before I really started doing these reviews. So with fresh eyes what was it like? Not great to be honest. First things first, the staff are really friendly and helpful. The location for town couldn't be better. But that's when my positives stop.... More

Stayed here last weekend for a special celebration with friends and what an amazing time. Finding it was a bit of a problem as it is tucked away up a cobbled one way street. We parked outside and went to reception where we were told to empty our cars and hand over the keys and the cars were taken off... More
