Booked in here for a short break to shrewsbury. Looked lovely on the Internet and did not disappoint in reality. Booked via mr and mrs smith and were given a free half bottle of wine on arrival. The car park is very tight and it is advisable to approach from town rather than the bridge. Once in we got a... More

Stayed at the Lion & Pheasant with friends for a quick 'get away' short break. Good location in relation to Shrewsbury itself and easy to access from out of town. Parking is behind the hotel - but be warned it is VERY tight in terms of access into/out of and actual manoevre space. Once inside a very pleasant and calm... More

Unknown to us, this is a Mr & Mrs Smith hotel. Lovely surprise, boutiquey and quirky. On arrival, we were told we had been upgraded to a suite. Wonderful! Narrow twisty stairs to the second floor. Note, no lift! We managed the climb, but it's quite steep! Stepped down into a large suite with a huge cushioned day-bed. White wall,... More

We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who announced we had been upgraded to a better room....it overlooked the river and bridge. Our room was on the third floor and energetic staff enthusiastically carried our luggage to our room. The hotel itself was full of character, the bed and room very comfortable. The hotel was well located and the food,... More

Stayed for one night for my birthday. Perfect location in the centre of town. Great looking place, really well decorated and had a calming feel. Our room wasn't that big but the decor made it feel light and airy. Our evening meal was super and so was the breakfast. Staff were helpful and friendly. Great to have free parking too.

A bit of background- We stayed here last year and had a torrid time since our room in the main building was uninhabitable due to recent painting and the fumes were still present and the second room we were given was across the road in one of the apartments and it was the coldest night we spent. So the hotel... More

My wife and I stayed at The Lion & Pheasant for one night in July and enjoyed our stay very much. The room was clean, beds comfortable and all the usual amenities available. Staff were helpful, friendly and efficient. The only downside was that, because the hotel is close to the town centre, the lack of double glazing meant that... More

Lovely hotel with relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful, tasteful decor and friendly staff. The only downside was that the pretty room at the front of the hotel was a little noisy. The breakfasts were delicious with local produce. Highly recommend
