We almost missed going to Shrewsbury - thank goodness we didn't . The town is a little gem and the Sandford House Hotel was prefect. The location right in the middle of town was superb and an excellent carpark only 50m away and 3 pubs within 50m .Our room was recently redecorated , smallish but very nice. The ensuite was... More

Excellent location at edge of Town Centre and near the River. Accommodation passable. Some items lacking, like a curtain in the bathroom. Rooms on the front very noisy at night as it is on the main street to the bridge.

I recently stayed at this hotel and found it really friendly , its right in the town centre next to the Quarry Park which is beautiful. The room we had was very spacious and overlooked the garden, , so it was very quiet , and the garden is beautiful, the flowers are just beginning to look good. Breakfast was plentiful... More

I have stayed at Sandford frequently since 2002! Its Georgian architecture, spacious and well decorated rooms, lovely garden with an enchanting pond and its English breakfast constitute an ideal home-away-from-home treat. The owners and staff are welcoming and it is obvious they enjoy their work, which is to give their guests want to return year after year., I am a... More

I booked this hotel direct with the owner over the phone. Told him I required a room with a proper seating area with easy chairs. Having been assured he had a lovely room that was v. Quiet and would suit us just fine at a good price I went ahead and booked. We arrived late afternoon and was asked for... More

We booked the Sandford House Hotel as the location looked excellent - virtually in the heart of Shrewsbury. Sadly the location is the only positive we can find to offer. On arrival around a slightly confusing one-way system we were informed the hotel has no parking of it's own and that we'd need to use the public car park which... More

Rooms are dirty, the owner needs a lesson in customer service and the breakfast is cheap product not cooked correctly. Don't bother complaining he is not bothered and doesn't listen. I wasn't shocked to find this was the only place to have any spare rooms during my visit when I tried to move.

Recently stayed at this hotel with my elderly Mum. In my initial booking, done by telephone back in August last year, I asked for an accessible room with walk in shower and disabled facilities to help my Mum with her mobility issues. We were allocated Room 14 which does have a 'walk in' shower, but does not have a grab... More
