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.

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.

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
