This little gem is conveniently located near the town center. I was given a warm welcome upon arriving at the doorsteps. I originally booked into a single room but was upgraded to the family room (1 double bed and 1 single bed) due to booking error. The room and bathroom were well equipped and of a decent size, although the... More

Good location, 5 minutes walk to Abbey & 15 minutes to town centre over English Bridge. If you get a room at the back I would assume it would be a lot quieter those that overlook the maim road! Our room also suffered from plumbing noises, both from our bathroom but also from adjacent rooms. Breakfast service was rushed at... More

Attended wedding at The Lord Hill hotel next door, they had run out of rooms so suggested we stay in the B&B. Started off a bit strange from the start, emailed & phoned to book, sent cheque but received no confirmation. On speaking to reception they couldn't confirm whether we had a booking or not as they do not put... More

A poor bed and breakfast, the staff seemed to look down their noses at the customers, the rooms were very old fashioned and you could hear running water gushing through pipes in your room every time another guest used the toilet or shower. The windows did not open and the walls had damp on them

We stayed here for a night before travelling over to north Wales. I booked the room via a online site and received a call about an hour later from the owners to say that the last double room had just been booked but they could offer me a slightly smaller one at a lower price. As it was only for... More

After reading some of the other reviews, I had to check that I was reviewing the same Guest House ! Our room at the front was musty, and the window could not be opened, so we had to open the bathroom window to get some fresh air into the room. There was continous noise from the road and other guests... More

Clean and convenient but Breakfast very rushed and only an hour given. No menus were offered nor choices and the cooked breakfast arriving before I could even finish my coffee or cereal ......... Please slow down and ask Guests if they are ready rather than rushing this service through. Personally I would not return!

We have just spent 2 nights at the guest house while visiting friends in Shropshire and it was lovely. Staff very friendly, food delicious and room was nice. It was within walking distance from the town and all the local attractions. If we needed to come to Shrewsbury again we would definitely book here.
