We only spent one night but it was very comfortable and very quiet. The owners were away but we were ably looked after and had the place to ourselves. The guest lounge facility is a brilliant idea and met our needs very well. There are lots of low ceilings but it was not a problem despite being 6ft 4 in... More

We stayed with our dog in September 2013 for 2 nights. Sara and Ken gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel at home. The freshly cooked breakfast was lovely and the doggy breakfast was a great touch. The local pubs are good for evening meals and also very welcoming. I would definitely recommend staying at the Trow... More

Great little B&B, interesting history, well located to explore all the local museums and visit the pubs! Friendly welcome, diy teas & coffees and selection of cake and muffins always available. Great breakfast - you might want to pop up the Black Swan for lunch or dinner (same cook).

We spent three nights in the Boatmans, a very comfortable (if small) room. Very friendly welcome from Sara and Ken with a cup of tea and some just-baked blueberry muffins on offer. As far as possible, all the food is sourced locally - I even heard one of the hens clucking to announce it had just laid an egg, and... More

I had a wonderful two nights at The Severn Trow in the company of my trusty hound Rocco. What a fabulous dog friendly little gem it is. Sara and Ken were so welcoming, hospitable and accommodating, and my trusty hound Rocco was made to feel like a member of the family, with his own cooked breakfast and a host of... More

We chose Severn Trow because of the excellent reviews and their dog friendliness. Neither us or the dog were disappointed! Ken and Sara couldn't have been more welcoming. We stayed in William & Mary which was delightful. The home baking and cooked breakfasts were first class. The dog also had his own cooked breakfast, he couldn't quite believe his luck!!

My wife and I decided to try something rather different for our wedding anniversary, so we booked two nights at the Trow on the basis of the website and TripAdvisor reviews. What an unusual delight. Booking was really smooth, friendly and professional. Ironically, I read the only poor review on the morning of our departure; seemingly written by a curmudgeon... More

That bloomin' door bell. Actually its now our third - there is something with the remote ones (where you plug in a receiver and it connects to the bell through the ether) that doesn't like thick Trow walls. We have become truly paranoid about it - Ken checks it constantly now. Either that or he's hiding a woman upstairs ;-).... More

What a delightful B&B! From the tea and cake ready on our arrival to the parting good wishes we had a wonderful experience at Severn Trow. We used Wilfred's room, which is light and airy, very comfortable and has a magnificent bath/shower-room. The place is nicely quiet. Hosts Ken, Sara and Debs do everything they can to make a stay...

See this just goes to prove the point that running a B+B is a lovely way to earn a living - if exhausting at times. We so enjoyed meeting you and chatting with you - and it makes all the hard work worth it when people enjoy their stay with us. We very much hope you do come back to... More

Have finally got round to writing a review for a real little gem. The Trow is a fabulous place, and if like me you cant stand the premier inn type of B&B, then you are in for a treat. The rooms are clean, airy and interesting and the area is fabulous, but what really makes this place sing is the... More

We were disappointed at the way we were received. The door bell did not work & we had to enter the property & shout for attention, which did not work. We rung the house number & it went to voicemail. We waited roughly around 15 minutes before Ken came along. We were shown to our room, we had been upgraded... More

I'm not sure what to say to this. We're really sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Honestly. We wouldn't run a B+B if we didn't want people to enjoy their stay. It would be a pretty unsustainable business model. I am also sorry that I didn't get to meet you. When Ken saw you off he asked if you were... More
