Stayed two nights when in town for a wedding - room small but comfortable - breakfast freshly cooked and good quality - if you don't want noise don't book a room above a wine bar!! Parking nearby in NCP - £7.20 per day. Would stay again - great location and friendly staff.

Hotel should be closed. Electrics in room weren't working so couldn't plug anything in. Bed side lights bulbs broke. Very uncomfortable bed. Filthy behind bed. The workmen woke us up at 6.45am by admission of staff hotel should be closed whilst works on going. An extremely noisy hotel would never stay here again. The breakfast was worst I've ever had.

The workmen started at 7.50am and not 6.45am as you stated. The work was urgent and you were not charged for your stay due to the interruption for which we apologised. More

Nice little place. We came by train and out was an easy 5-10 min walk from the station. We had room 1, which was a bit noisy until the bar closed at around 11 but after that pretty quiet. It's a lovely old building and we had a very nice meal when we arrived. Good location for wandering around town... More

Bar was lovely with great wine and great food, pretty reasonably priced. Staff were all really friendly and helpful. Room was very small but cosy. Definitely needs some redecorating though. Exposed wires in the bathroom, paint peeling from the roof of the shower and a mass of cobwebs behind the bathroom sink. The tv is tiny as well! That didn't... More

the pictures I'd seen on line. Obviously a good photographer as I felt a little disappointed by the room when I got there. However, that aside, it was perfectly functional and had a great bathroom. The only gripe was the flat screen TV which is specifically mentioned on booking.com is only slightly bigger than an iPad and has regular fits.... More

Arrived at B&B after 2 laps of town trying to find a parking space. Lovely quirky very old building. We where shown to our room by one of the bar staff who was very friendly. The room its self was more like a glorified closet, i have never stayed in a room so small. The bed was very uncomfy and... More

We had a faulty shower unit, which was not passed on to us on our arrival, only in the morning when we went for shower, we couldn't use it as we live 10 miles away we left it, but on checkout we...

We have just stayed for two nights at this fantastic inn and restaurant in the centre of Shrewsbury. This place is packed full of charm and atmosphere and all the staff were second to none - so very pleasant and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very spacious and comfortable and very clean. We ate in the... More
