The Old House Suites is a wonderful boutique hotel and I am almost reluctant to post a review in case it becomes so popular that I can't get a room the next time that I go to Shrewsbury! It wouldn't suit disabled guests as it is a genuine listed building with wonky floors, steps and stairs but it is one... More

Spent 1 night in the fabulous Catherine of Aragon Suite, and Wow this place is stunning, hosts are so friendly and enjoyed learning more about the history of this gem of a house by Tony (a book of knowledge), to top it off, breakfast was superb !!!

The Catherine of Aragon suite's vast bed, free bottle of Fizz, super fluffy Dressing Gowns and fine Full English Breakfast make this a most excellent Salopian retreat. Fantastic sun drenched Drawing room and commanding views over Shrewsbury. Mein host's 1 hour tour of the spectacular premises should not be missed. Made most welcome.

We were really pleased with our stay - to start with, it was a genuine suite - not just a large room with a sofa bunged in, as we have experienced in other places, but a large, beautiful bedroom, down the hall a very comfortable separate lounge (both with views over the Severn) and bathroom and separate shower room.

A beautiful town view from the window of a grand luxurious suite. Breath taking and romantic atmosphere. Friendly service and a delicious breakfast. We were tidied up after even though we had tidied up. That was a nice touch. Our suites bathroom was the best bathroom I have ever been in and this was a splendid choice for our first... More

We stayed 3 nights in the beautiful and cosy Catherine of Aragon suit with a great view. Fred was an attentive host and made us feel very welcome, nothing too much trouble. On my partners birthday we came back to our room after a day exploring Shrewsbury, to find our bottle of bubbly chilling and a treat of cupcakes with... More

We chose Old House Suites for a weekend away with friends to celebrate my husbands birthday. As we had planned to arrive in Shrewsbury at noon I called ahead to ask if it was possible to park in the car park whilst we went out for lunch and would check in later on, there was no problem with this at...

We spent three nights using a two room suite at the top of the house. The rooms were spacious and very nicely furnished, but the house and the host were the real treats. The huge beams, paneling, and carved woodwork alone are worth the price of the suite. The tour/history lesson provided by our gracious and knowledgeable host, the very... More

It was stunning before now it's amazing! ! It was really nice that Fred remembered us from the previous year and it's great to see Tony... More

We have just enjoyed a night in The Catherine of Aragon suite. The suite consists of a massive bedroom, sitting room, bathroom with a bath and a shower room. The bed was huge and one of the most comfy I have ever slept in. Breakfast, plentiful and of a very high quality was served in our sitting room. It was... More
