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

We had to come to Shrewsbury for a wedding, a very important wedding and that was my partners daughter. Five of us booked into the Old Post office and were immediately made to feel very welcome and very valued. The rooms were clean and comfortable, although just a slight winge, the windows could have been closed a little earlier as... More

We took our evening meal at the restaurant and so glad we did, the chef truly knows his stuff, absolutely gorgeous, perfection we were served up, by the ever friendly and helpful staff. Amazing. We took a... More

Had a super stay here in March. I really enjoyed the breakfast (the quality of the sausages and bacon were excellent) and for it to be included for free was incredible value for money!! The bar was noisy but it was the weekend and as others travellers have pointed out they have live music... i loved it, they were great!!!... More

This was our fourth visit to Shrewsbury and our first stay at the old post office. Nice room with en-suite and a comfy bed. Although if you did want an early night I don't think it would be possible with the loud music from the bar. Ideal situated right in the town close to all the pubs.

Popped in on a day trip. Don't start servings until 6pm, though the pub is open all day and they serve lunchtimes. Wehad excellent thick and juicy sirloins at a reasonable price. As it was still early evening, it was a little quiet but the guy who served us was very attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place. Has... More

I would advise not staying here if you have an early start! I've stayed three times and there are two types of music thumping away in the bar downstairs until late, for this reason I feel it is overpriced and definately not 4 star! they should make it clear it is above a public bar. There was a sign in... More
