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.

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

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

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

Arrived quite early - about 10.30 - but was able to get into the room straight away to leave my bag. Lovely clean room with very comfortable bed and En Suite with shower. Nice lounge with books about local history to browse. Breakfast delicious.

Spent a very lovely evening after a long ride... The room was clean and comfortable. Cary at the desk was quite helpful. Had a wonderful English breakfast, which was included in the room. Would definitely stay here again.
