“A friendly and relaxed break.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2009

We found the Tontine Hotel by chance while driving through Ironbridge, we were looking for somewhere to spend the night and where better than opposite the Ironbridge itself.
We booked a double room that was nicely decorated, had a four poster bed and an amazing view of the Ironbridge.
We enjoyed an evening meal in the bar and spent the rest of the night drinking and chatting with some of the staff and people from the local area.
We had a full english the next morning and after looking around Ironbridge we went back to the Tontine Hotel for their sunday carvery and we were not dissapointed.
Overall a very memerable and enjoyable stay and we looking forward to returning later in the year.

A tired and worn out hotel in a great location. What a waste! Awful 'Mexican' themed restaurant. Our room overlooked the Iron Bridge - fantastic! except our window was immediately above the smokers area! There was only a bath with a handheld shower. No hairdryer in the room. When I asked for one the member of staff said she thought they had one somewhere! She found one but I'm not sure how safe it was. The whole hotel smelt of stale smoke. The bar was very noisy.

Whilst driving through Ironbridge lookin for somewhere to stay we came upon the quite imposing Tontine Hotel.
We decided to pop in as it was located right opposite the famous Ironbridge itself.
On entering we received a warm welcome and decided to spend the night. The room we stayed in was very clean and looked as if it had been refurbished recently. Our room had a fantastic view of the Ironbridge and river Severn. We had a lovely meal in the Mexican restaurant followed by a very filling full English Brekkie in the morning.
Overall a very nice stay so much so that we stayed another nite

Everywhere else was booked up, and this looked lovely from the outside. We couldn't find a review on TripAdvisor, so we decided to go with it. Big mistake. It was horribly run down and tatty - our room appeared to have been furnished from a particulary poor jumble sale circa 1982, and really dirty too. I went to take a bath (there was no shower) and found a thick ring of sticky dirt round the inside. Eurghhhh. I called down to ask for it to be cleaned urgently. No one came. When we returned that evening, it was only a bit better.

Oh, and the hotel "Mexican" restaurant was awful.

Don't do it.
