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.

An excellent find - using trip advisor - to spend 2 nights celebrating my birthday in a beautiful location. This was perfect with nice use of the old history to still have modern perks - lovely shower! Fred, Tony and Mary are very welcoming and have opened their home to guests in a lovely manner....Tony was on the look out... More

This is the most fascinating accommodation I have ever stayed in. Comfortable, classy, relaxing, amazing history. Great food and lovely people. Seven on us had three rooms/suites. Perfect start to wife's Birthday celebrations.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Mary Tudor Suite. It was really excellent - kind and helpful hosts, most comfortable bed and spacious room with wonderful views over the garden, river and Shrewsbury - quiet and peaceful at night. A great bathroom with his and hers basins, a bath sited to take advantage of the view as well as... More

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

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
