Stayed here with a friend. We loved this little B&B and were so glad we chose it. We checked in smoothly, were given an upgrade to a suite and generally had a fabulous time. Shrewsbury is very much worth a visit and I would highly recommend this B&B. Tony and Fred (father and son) run this lovely place very well.... More

Staying here is an incredible experience - the history is palpable (and brought to life by Tony's tour of the house), the suites dripping with luxury and royal comfort, and the breakfast hearty. Well well worth it!

A fabulous B&B right in the heart of the town. Stunning rooms, a great breakfast room and breakfast. Genuine warm welcome from friendly people. The directions were scarily complicated, but SatNav and the last 2 sentences of their directions were all we needed. Lovely summer break, looking forward to a shopping trip in December with friends. Simply outstanding. It would... More

We travelled to Shrewsbury for a business trip and stayed in the Catherine of Aragon suite for four nights. I'm loathe to write too glowing a review in a vain attempt to make sure it won't be full next time we want to stay! There aren't enough superlatives to describe how wonderful the place and the people are - but... More

This was our second time at the Old House Suites. First time we stayed in the Mary Tudor Suite (read my previous review titled Simply The Best) this time we stayed in the Catherine of Aragon Suite. I must admit I struggled giving this review a title because this place has so much going for it, it really is brilliant,... More

We have just spent four nights in the centre of Shrewsbury at the Old House Suites. Great place to stay. Huge comfortable suites and attentive hosts. Lovely cooked breakfasts. Make time for Tony's historical tour of the house. Free, safe parking 5 min walk away with space to offload right outside the house.

We stayed one night in the Mary Tudor Suite. It was fantastic room. From the first time I spoke to Tony to enquiry if a room was available till we checked out, we had first class service. The Old House Suites is a house with some much character. Breakfast was beautifully cooked. You must take Tony up on his offer... More

We had to visit Shrewsbury for some personal business, and we stayed one night in the Thomas Bromley Suite. It worked well with us in one bedroom, and my mother saying in the other side. The Tudor building was so special! The rooms were wonderfully furnished. I really enjoyed meeting Fred, Tony and Mary! They were all friendly and helpful.... More

We stayed in the Catherine of Aragon suite for one night and it was perfect! So big and comfortable and furnished in a style in keeping with the Tudor period. Amazingly big and comfortable bed. One of the best breakfasts I think I have had at a B&B with such a choice and selection.
