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

Was told very firmly that breakfast will not be served before 8 !!!!!! The very rude owner also tried to get me to change my booking with booking.com for his own benefit Wifi is none existent One good point is it is clean. Will not be returning to this hotel.

Neither a warm welcome nor a fond farewell however, the B & B is right in the heart of Shrewsbury and as such is perfectly placed to explore the river and all the the town has to offer. The room we had was in the annexe in the garden & was pretty quiet from external noise but the walls in... More

We booked a short break here to visit Shrewsbury. The "Hotel" was in a good location, a short walk from shops, restaurants etc. As I have mobility issues we asked for a ground floor room and were located in the Garden lodge. The accessibility statement says these rooms are suitable for disabled people with a carer/travelling companion. Unfortunately, they are... More

We booked for 3 nights @ a reasonable rate averaging £50 per night. Only stayed for 2 as the weather was rubbish. This no 4 star hotel but more a large B&B. No bar & no car park can be got around as there is an OK pub just over the narrow road & a large public car park 50... More

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.

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.
