I really enjoyed my stay here. I was upgraded from a single to a double room at no extra cost. The staff, especially Kerry who looked after me, were absolutely lovely. They really acted like nothing was too much trouble for them and they really made my stay extra special. The room was lovely clean and homely feel about it.... More

We stayed there while visiting relatives. A very friendly welcome, welcomed our dog too. The room was a little basic, with no heater in the shower room, but the bed was comfortable. As other reviewers have mentioned, the breakfast is excellent. Plenty of it, locally made sausages and a decent cup of coffee. The hotel would have got 4 stars... More

We had planned a week-end in Shrewsbury to visit Wroxeter Roman City, and chose the Sydney House as our hotel. It was an excellent choice. We had a friendly welcome; in fact all the staff were polite and friendly. The room was on the small side but had everything we needed- comfy bed, tea & coffee facilities, iron & Ironing... More

Sydney House is a ten minute stroll into the centre of Shrewsbury, and gives very adequate accommodation and an excellent breakfast, at remarkably low rates. It also provides free off-street parking. Owners and staff were very helpful.

What a gem! Stop over on the way home from Abingdon to North Wales. Staff brilliant, ever so helpful and friendly. Facilities ideal and just outside town. Great value for money, gave me a packed breakfast because I was leaving early:-)

A clean and cosy small hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. A great place to stay for a short break as it is located just on the edge of Shrewsbury town centre with the shops, restaurants and pubs within walking distance. Very good value for money and I totally agree with many of the other reviews - the breakfast... More

Stayed here for two nights. The proprietor went out of his way to sort out our room requirements. The room was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee facilities. The breakfast was comprehensive and well cooked. The hotel was easy to find on the north side of the city and included parking which was a bonus. It was a 5-10... More

This was a quick stopover, a late arrival and early getaway, but Shrewsbury was a good choice for that and this hotel was even better than good. A most friendly welcome, good, though old-fashioned rooms with good facilities, our host pointed us in the right direction to dine in Shrewsbury, ten minutes pleasant stroll away, and not so easy after...

Stayed here for a night when we visited the Flower Show. We were more than happy with our choice it offers comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and friendly staff. Positioned about 15 mins walk into town we will certainly return if we visit Shrewsbury again.

Myself and my partner stayed at Sydney House for 2 nights- a traditional style B&B in a great location about 10 mins walk from Shrewsbury town centre. On arrival we were greeted pleasantly by the owner who showed us to our room on the first floor- a well presented, clean and compact room with everything we needed for our stay,... More
