Good value hotel, located in the centre of Shrewsbury. Great welcome and service, good quality breakfasts. Hotel let down by (a) the softness / squashiness of the bed and (b) the over-use of air freshener.

However apart from these points it was good value, nice breakfast,friendly hosts and central... More

We booked here for a last minute romantic New Year break and weren't disappointed in the slightest. By a good margin the least expensive we could find in the centre of Shrewsbury at new year so we weren't expecting miracles but were very pleasantly surprised. The building is full of character, the room spotlessly clean, modern bathroom and lovely and... More

We have stayed here on three occasions and found excellent value for money. Very convenient location close to the centre of Shrewsbury and large car park close by. Breakfast has always been fine and well presented. Would always stay here in preference to the larger more expensive chain hotels.

Although twin beds were in there and we asked for a double bed. The room was clean but the beds were too... More

The Sandford House Hotel is a lovely combination of new & old. The new comes in the form of the garden rooms which are spacious, clean & overlook the courtyard garden complete with fountain. The best of the old is represented by the main building (Georgian or possibly Regency) with both it's lovely lounge overlooking the private garden & the... More

I have ben working in Shrewsbury for several weeks now, and I found this small quaint hotel by accident. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the host Mr Richards has bent over backwards to help me out in finding places to visit and good eaterys, the car park next to the hotel is free after 6pm so this...

This place was clean, but that's where the positives end. It is quite tired and dated and the owner gives the impression that guests are a bit of an inconvenience as well as being rude and condescending. Parking in the nearby Pay & Display Car Park was unexpected, although it is reasonably priced. I struggled to obtain a reassuring response... More

I have to say firstly this is my very first review, I stayed at the Sandford last weekend, I live locally but was attending a family party in Shrewsbury so thought it better to stay.Indeed the fire alarms did go off at 03.00 in the morning and Mr Richards was looking for the culprit, who confessed at breakfast time and...

Nice cosy hotel within 10 minutes stroll of the town centre and next to the river with lovely walks. Speedy check in and we were lucky enough to be able to park in the only space outside the door S the owner was away. There is a large pay and display car park just around the corner however. Room was... More
