An ideal position in the centre of Shrewsbury but no parking on site. The NCP was not expensive but it is a pull back up the hill if you don't manage to leave your luggage first. An old building which reflects in the rooms but ours had been decorated nicely. There needed to be a shelf in the bathroom as... More

We stayed one night on our stay and were pleasantly surprised with the room. The breakfast was amazing and the price was very affordable. Being a Sunday there was no evening meal but it is so central to the city that food was easy to get. Parking was an issue add the streets are metered and very strictly enforced and... More

Stayed at the Old Post Office during a stopover in Shrewsbury. The rooms are at the back of a fabulous pub, steeped in history and very centrally located. There's no parking at the Old Post Office, so we left our car at the Long Stay NCP down the road - £7.20 for 24 hours. The pub and its amenities were... More

My wife and I stayed at the Old Post Office, a pleasant pub, once a coaching inn having travelled on the train from London to explore Shrewsbury. We were very pleased to find its location ideal, central to all main points of interest, and only about ten minutes walk from the station. We found the rooms comfortable, well maintained and...

I had a couple of nights here and enjoyed it. I found the staff to be very pleasant. The wifi was patchy. It was good on the first day and patchy on the second day. The cooked breakfast and evening meals were very pleasant. The Old Post Office is in an excellent location for seeing Shrewsbury. Just read the visitors... More

I found The Old Post Office as a pub on my last visit to attend Shrewsbury Poets next door at Eat Up, the excellent bistro venue next door on Milk Street. With a couple of fellow attendees, I enjoyed a drink in the Courtyard and checked out their accommodation. Pleased that this time I chose to stay overnight, and was... More

On our first trip to the UK, The Old Post Office offered us our first experience in a typical BnB. After staying in motels and hotels previously, we were thrilled to come across this little BnB in the quaint town of Shrewsbury. We had left Warwick late that day and after driving for a couple of hours, arrived in Shrewsbury... More
