We stayed for night having gone to the Shrewsbury flower show. The hotel is located on one of the main streets in the town and onlyhasa few rooms. Our room was no. 2 and was at the back of the hotel so it was quiet. Room was a good size with a good size shower room. In the room there... More

Stayed 2 nights and would stay here again. Breakfast is fantastic, I had no idea that Bonne Maman Jams were locally produced as stated on the breakfast table. Rooms are cleaned to a fair standard. Guilty of one of my pet hates.... random crap clothes hangers. Mattress had an apex running down the middle somehow but overall a lovely room... More

Went here for lunch yesterday with friends. There was a lovely bustling atmosphere. Had a light lunch - very tasty! Service from a young girl called Naomi was good. She was very helpful in recommending dishes.

Stayed two nights over the weekend and revived top notch, friendly service from everyone throughout my stay. The breakfast was great and the room was an absolute pleasure to stay in (room one). I left my book in the hotel and the staff sent it back to my home address the next day! Fantastic service. The hotel is also very... More

Excellent and friendly staff, a very comfortable hotel with many little extras and exquisite touches here and there. The hotel was in a perfect location and within walking distance to every attraction. When I visit Shrewsbury again I will definitely stay here.

Set on a quiet street a stones throw from everything. Lots of eating/drinking and great shopping nearby. The building is very old - stairs are steep and the floor uneven so not suitable if you have limited mobility. We liked the room which was quiet despite the thumping bar downstairs. It had all we needed (including ironing facilities and bathrobes),... More

This is a perfect location in the centre of Shrewsbury & easily within walking distance of the station. Parking can be a problem so would advise guests to come by train if possible. Only 4 bedrooms in this quirky old building which has kept much of its original features including sloping floors & ceilings & dark wooden beams. Stairs &... More

Stayed recently with a Travel Zoo coupon for a two night stay with B&B with a three course meal on the first night. Predominately an upmarket bar and restaurant with an American themed menu. No reception so check in was via the bar which thankfully was not busy on our arrival. We were shown to room 2 which was on... More
