Great place to stay inexpensively in Ironbridge Gorge about 30 feet from the 1779 Iron Bridge. The family room (#9) has a queen bed and two twin beds along with an en suite bathroom/shower. Family run, friendly, good English breakfast included.

The Tontine was clean and in a great location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The WIFI was frustrating to use because it made you sign in every 30 minutes, and you could not get a strong signal on the top floor. The breakfast was fine but don't order the sausage which tasted like the microwave pre cooked ones... More

Location is superb, the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the linen and towels immaculately clean and fresh. All the staff were cheerful and very helpful. This is a busy local bar/hotel that has existed for donkey's years and though the fabric of the building is a little tired and dated, it serves it's purpose well - the food is straightforward...

My partner and I were travelling north and decided to spend a night in Ironbridge on the way up. We saw that some of the reviews said the hotel was a bit outdated but thought that it would be okay for a night, particularly as it was opposite the bridge. It was not okay. The room we stayed in wasn't... More

Stayed for 1 night only while in Telford on business. The highlight was pulling back the curtains to reveal the early morning sun, and seeing the Ironbridge immediately in front of me. What a superb view. The rooms are tidy & comfortable, and the hotel is convenient for a host of pubs, bars & restaurants along the river; glorious when... More

Stayed for one night - room 6, top floor. Great view over the Ironbridge as it's directly opposite. Chose to eat/drink out as the bar seemed soulless. Went to the White Hart (which is excellent, but a little on the pricey side) The room was just better than adequate, and felt clean. Got up at 7.00 am to a cold... More
