“Good B&B, would recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Great B&B, would recommend. Our room was very very clean, as was the bathroom - couldn't find fault. The room was quite large too, plenty of storage space and nice tea and coffee making facilities.

Warm welcome from Mike (and Lucky the dog) who provided lots of info on the area - and taxi services too!!!

Breakfast was great but we just couldn't do it justice!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

we stayed for one night in late march when attending a wedding at the nearby Parkhouse. We would echo the positive reviews added by previous entries. The accommodation is lovely and the welcome from Judy and Mike (and the dog) is genuinely warm and friendly. The Breakfast was not only huge but also well presented and tasty. when Mike say large he means LARGE!!

we would certainly recommend and if we are this way again we will definitely stay again.

We came to Anvil Lodge as we were going to an engagement party in Shifnal. We do not drive so got the train. So convienient, it is 2 minutes from the station. Attached to their own pub, the room we had was stunning. Huge bed where me and my wife got lost!!! Bathroom was bliss with a powershower and a fantastic bath. The room was clean and cosy. Had a fantastic pint in their pub (Tiger Bitter). As for the breakfast - OMG!!! Mike made a stunning full english breakfast which kept us going all day long!!! A wonderful B&B - will definitely stay again. Little comment for the owners - next time four in a bed contact you please compete you would win easily!!! Adam and Kate xx

Just had a one night stay at Anvil Lodge. Comfortable, welcoming and a fantastic breakfast. Really good value and our hosts couldn't have been more friendly. Would really recommend this place.

We stayed for one night as we were going to a party locally. We received an extremely warm welcome, Judy even ironed my husband's shirt for him! We were made to feel very welcome in the pub, both before and after our do, a proper real ale pub with a log fire. The room was lovely, very bright and comfortable. Breakfast was fab, even the small English was filling, I didn't have lunch! The communal dining table was lovely idea. I agree with previous comments that Mick and Judy really made you feel at home and we would have no hesitation in staying with them again.

Mike and Judy were so warm and friendly they made you feel like family and made our stay very enjoyable and could not do enough for you. The room was very clean and modern it was to a very high standard there was everything you could possibly need. We were only five minutes walk from the village where there were ample restaurants pubs and shops There are lots of places of interest to visit just a short drive away Telford is a ten minute drive away where there is a huge shopping centre. The best thing for us was the service we were given by Mike and Judy the breakfast was both large and amazing we will definately be going back. Do try the great pub next door where we had a few good nights.
