My 14 friends and I rented out the whole property for a birthday weekend! Lovely rooms, great history and loved the hidden basement bar! At £77 for both nights per person it was a bargain and would highly recommend! Beautiful rooms and views from the garden....will be back in the summer!!

What a delightful place to stay! We stayed in the Catherine of Aragon suite which was superb. Large bedroom with the most comfortable bed, a separate sitting room with TV and table at which breakfast was served each morning. The suite also had a shower room and separate bathroom with claw foot bath. Tony and Mary made us very welcome... More

What a find. This accommodation is right in the centre of Shrewsbury. We stayed in The Catherine of Aregon suite which comprised of a large bedroom, large sitting room where breakfast was brought to us, a bathroom and separate shower room. The rooms were a lot larger than any in our house! I can't believe what good value this place... More

Staying here is certainly an experience, the house dates back to early 1500s and has many original features. For anyone interested in the history of that time staying here is a must. We stayed in the Mary Tudor Suite which overlooks the rear garden and we were not disappointed. The room is huge and the en-suite comes with a bath... More

I really cannot praise the Old House Suites highly enough. I stayed in the Catherine of Aragon suite and the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The bedroom was really spacious, there was a bathroom with claw foot bath, separate room with a large shower and a lounge area which was great for relaxing in. Good... More

Staying here is the answer to the history-lover's dream: a large, elegant, centrally-located house richly overlaid with the patina of centuries, yet offering a full range of 21st. century comforts. To crown it all, the free(to guests) parking the owners have arranged with the nearby NCP facility means that those staying at the Old House can drive right| into the... More

By staying in this house you will experience a little bit of history. We stayed in the Catherine of Aragon suite. The bedroom itself was very big, with a lovely, large, very comfortable bed. We also had a sitting room where we spent cosy evenings with our friends who were staying in the Mary Tudor suite. The bathroom and separate... More

We were in the Catherine of Aragon suite. The room was large and the bed, more French Rococo than Spanish, extremely comfortable. A separate shower-room and bathroom made a pleasant change. In addition, we had our own sittingroom. Breakfast was good - the usual B&B spread, but the pièce de résistance was Tony's tour of the house. What a raconteur!... More

Had the most wonderful time, this accommodation is full of history in this beautiful part of the country. If your looking for somewhere that stands out from the norm then this is it. The house is situated in the town centre with lots of good restaurants and bars close to hand.

What is there not to love about this gorgeous grand Tudor home. The Mary Tudor was my choice a very generous room, totally luxurious and like the whole place oozing with history and antiquity. The oak panelled walls , the grand and totally cozy bed , lovely furnishings without clutter and large windows filling the space with light . The... More
