On the Sunday night we ate a bar meal and the fish and chips cooked by Ben were fantastic, he made a special lime batter which was very light and good. My husband had the traditional beer battered cod which he really enjoyed. Lots... More

My second one night stay in a month, and as enjoyable as the first. Clean, warm, attractive hotel, with helpful staff and lovely breakfast....a bargain at £55! Add the convenience of on site parking at £5 for the length of your stay, and you have a great place to stay.

Having just spent the weekend here, I have to say what a relaxing hotel. Staff were superb and so was the food in the Hayward restaurant. I had the scallops and the lamb, delicious. Rooms very comfortable and warm. So the floor did creek but that all added to the ambience of this beautiful historic building.

We booked the Lion Hotel for a short weekend break. Great choice as the hotel was very convenient for the centre of town. Old hotel with lots of character, and clean & comfortable. We only had breakfast at the hotel, as tended to eat out, but the breakfast was excellent & the staff very good. Car park on site so... More

Stayed here for one night in February and we were glad it was no more. The hotel is looking very tired and needs some serious investment. Our room was on the small side and the bed was very firm. We overlooked the pub next door and this was quite noisy into the early hours of the morning. Breakfast was ok... More

The Lion is an old coaching Inn in the centre of Shrewsbury it does need capital investment of that I am sure.

A warm welcome by the staff was a good start, after all it was New Years Eve. The Lion Hotel is all it lives up to and previous reviews are probably right as this hotel may not be what you are looking for if you want a very modern room with no quirkiness or delightful character. We stayed with friends... More

Stayed here after our work party in one of their function suites and things did not go entirely to plan. The draft beer upstairs was all off and tasted like it had sat in the pipes for a long time. This meant the bar downstairs became swamped. Food was ok but we seemed to wait an age between getting the... More
