This hotel is situated at the top of the town and thus has marvellous views of the surrounding hills. There is plenty of parking and a useful well appointed patio/garden at the rear. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The food was reasonably well cooked and the menu quite varied. The building is Grade II listed and has been well maintained. Our room was rather disappointing, being small and with minimal windows that we could only see out of by standing up. The room fittings were old fashioned (particularly lino on the bathroom floor), although the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a good size; to have then installed the smallest shower cubicle we have ever seen was inexplicable. The shower itself defeated all our efforts to control the water temperature. The room rate was significantly more than we had paid in other hotels/B&Bs in Shropshire with better quality rooms. Overall not good value for money.
