This one is really special. I stayed in the attic suite (Thomas Bromley). The downside is that you have to have to watch your head to avoid bumping into a low beam or doorpost. The upside is lots of space, comfortable furnishings and beautiful views out the across the lovely Old House garden to the townscape beyond. There's a bathtub... More

Stepping back 500 hundred years to stay in this beautifully preserved Tudor Timepiece was an excellent experience. A friendly welcome from Tony who owns the property along with his wife Mary, is also the custodian of the house's history and happily took us on an history tour which is a must! We stayed in the 'Catherine of Aragon' suite, beautifully... More

We stayed 3 nights in July and this would be one of the best places we have stayed anywhere in the world. I always try to book into places that are relevant to the towns we are visiting and this exceeded all expectations. It will always be one of the "lifetime experiences" for us. The passion of the owners for... More

We stayed here for two nights last week and had an absolutely wonderful stay! Fred, Tony and Mary are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome in their home. Fred greeted us on our arrival and was a brilliant host throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble. Mary's superb breakfast was second to none. The tour of the... More

What a wonderful place, with wonderful hosts. We were warmly welcomed into Tony and Mary's home, (Fred was not about). Everything we needed to know about our stay was explained with passion and clarity and Tony escorted my husband to the car park just across the road (this is free). We stayed in the Mary Tudor Suite with a super... More

Suffice to say that I've already booked for 2015 for friends to meet up and book all three rooms. We had the Thomas Bromley, top floor suite. Large, great views, two massive baths, comfy bed, and lots of space. Ask owner Tony to give you the tour of this fascinating 1520 house, it brings it all to life. Breakfast was... More

If you like a quirky place to stay then this is made for you. The house, dating back to the 15th Century, is wooden panelled and wonderfully creaky. Our room, the Mary Tudor Suite was huge, with a very comfortable king size bed, sofa, chairs, Sky and walk in wardrobe. There is fresh milk in the fridge for your tea... More

Just returned from 3 days break in shrewsbury. Trip was made by the wonderful Old House Suites. Everything about it was superb, firstly we felt inspired by the hosts Tony and Mary. Tony's tour of the house was full of interesting tales of by-gone-days and his enthusiasm makes you want to investigate more. The breakfast served by Mary in our... More

If interested in historical buildings, and open to the impact of time on a 500 year old structure, this is a fantastic place to stay. We had a wonderful suite on the third floor of The Old House Suites (one suite of three). The bath fixtures are sparkly modern. However, moving from one room to the next, or even through... More
