Me and my partner stayed in room 5 for a night after visiting back in May time but being unable to get any accommodation for the night so this time we booked in advance. Shrewsbury is a beautiful old-worldy town anyway and our accommodation matched. We had a lovely double bed, en-suite facilities with a shower and lovely low-lying windows... More

From when we arrived the staff were so friendly and helpful. Our room was immaculate and so cosy. Huge TV and comfortable bed. What more could you want. Although situated in the centre of the town it was amazingly quiet. The guy on the bar was a credit to the hotel and looked after us when we ate there in... More

I stayed here a couple of days ago just for the one night. I had a lovely friendly welcome. Considering the Hotel is smack bang in the town centre my room was really nice and very quiet and peaceful, all I woke up to was the sound of the birds singing. The owner was so kind and helpful at breakfast... More

Stayed here for the second time in March. The hotel is well located for the centre of Shrewsbury, just a few minutes walk from the town centre and pubs/restaurants. It doesn't have its own car park, which means you need to park 5-10 minutes walk away in the Wyle Cop public car at the bottom of the hill, which isn't... More

Helpful staff. Good location close to centre of Shrewsbury, although no car parking on site. Breakfast was very generous. The Old Post Office is a former coach house with two courtyards which give some shade and solitude when needed yet just off the main streets. Also a good choice of beers.

I was passing through Shrewsbury on a rail journey and needed somewhere to stay overnight which was convenient for the railway station, reasonably priced and - a personal preference - served good beer. The Old Post Office is all that. I was checked-in by one of the friendly bar staff and shown to the accommodation which has its own separate... More
