Stayed two nights in the 4 poster bed room this week. The bed is the most uncomfortable one we have ever slept in, it is like laying on a board. The bed also slopes down from foot to head. The staff I have to say are very good and helpful. Breakfast very limited , not a place we would stay... More

I thought that we had 'struck gold' discovering this charming 15th century inn right in the heart of the old town at such a reasonable price. Certainly more reasonable than its contemporaries nearby. The courtyard outside is delightful with decking, patio heaters and water features although the noise that comes into the room is not. However this is to be... More

We stayed her on Saturday 29 March. The room was excellent although the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast. We arrived in the dining room at just gone 9;30am and was greeted by a very rude waitress who informed us that we had missed breakfast!, she rudely offered us cerials and toast and... More

Great little hotel/ inn in the centre of shrewsbury. Few minutes walk to centre. Lovely wine bar with friendly professional staff. Very good English breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

This was a great place to stop for 2 nights. Good and cosy atmosphere, very friendly staff and super food. Centrally located to walk around town. We had the added bonus of a fabulous four poster bed and a portrait of Cromwell in our room! Although fully booked for dinner on night two they squeezed us in and we really... More

Stayed here for a night over Christmas and was very disappointed. The room was tiny with barely enough room to move. The bed had no head board and therefore made sitting up in bed (the room was that small there was nowhere else too sit) very uncomfortable. The room had a window which misted up with condensation, and if you... More

Not all of us had starters so obviously were very hungry. The manager did bring over complementary olives for three of us who didn't... More

Very nice room with 4 Poster bed. Had to change rooms as work being done. This was ok but felt a little that we were in the way as we were shooed out of our "upgrade" room (as our booked room was having work done and was unavailable) the second day as the owner now wanted to do work in... More
