Merivale House is quaint little property with a gorgeous backyard. The owner was friendly and the made-to-order breakfast was one of the best I had during my recent holiday. Those things having been said, it was a bit farther from town than I hoped and the room was adequate but not really comfortable. I appreciate that this is the family... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry that you were unhappy with your stay. I am slightly saddened that books and films are considered to be clutter, but have removed some of them to create some empty shelves. The bed in the room is general given a very positive review, hopefully if unable to sleep you were able to make use of... More

Stayed for one night whilst in the area for work. Very comfortable and friendly, guest lounge are is a good idea as is the video and book library. Breakfast in the conservatory was very nice, can't comment on the cooked breakfast as there was an issue with the power in the morning which was unfortunate.

We had a great stay at the Merivale. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. Clean, tidy and a great breakfast with more than usual on offer. Great location as only 10-15 minutes walk into Shrewsbury. Our hosts daughter even dog sat for us so we could visit a restaurant rather than usual pub grub - thank you again.

Merivale House is a two-room bed and breakfast. It had the most comfortable bed and pillows of our 3-week driving tour of Great Britain. In addition to the two guest rooms on the 1st floor (English system) of the house, there was also a comfortable lounge for use of the guests. The cooked to order breakfast offered 4 choices and...

We spent a wonderful night in this absolutely gorgeous B&B. The room was warm, clean, comfortable and the breakfast unbeatable. Also the sharing sitting room, just stunning! Very welcoming and lovely hostess. We definitely recommend it!

A warm welcome and a truly memorable house. Fabulous breakfast, comfortable room and use of a stunning sitting room. Peaceful location, just 20 mins walk to city centre, with buses until 11.30pm (except Sundays).

We spent a wonderful weekend in this lovely B&B in June. The welcome was warm, the accommodation comfortable and spacious and the breakfast indulgent! The garden was beautiful. We were able to use the B&B as a base to explore the surrounding area including, of course, stonehenge.Our hostess couldn't do enough for us and we will definitely return for another... More

Each day we woke to an amazingly wonderful breakfast. Lovliest garden view, had it been less rainy, it would have been lovliest garden breakfast with... More

What can I say that hasn’t already been written? A warm welcome, a lovely double ensuite bedroom tastefully decorated and a superb breakfast are all part of the experience here. Yes, the cakes are mouth-watering – homemade chocolate brownies and a pot of tea on arrival and muffins and croissants are also included with breakfast. The separate sitting room is... More

We had a one night stay here while our friends camped nearby. We felt super smug when we arrived and saw our comfortable looking room and were offered a glass of wine or a beer while they were in a damp field putting their tents up in the rain! We stayed in the smaller double room, but there was still... More
