This B and B is tucked away on a back street in Ironbridge and is totally charming, the room we stayed in was quite tiny but comfortable, the house is lived in by the proprietors, so it has a lovely atmosphere, breakfast was super and the overall stay was perfect, the only reason I drop a mark is for the...

My wife and I stayed at the Library House for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The B&B was clean and well-appointed ; we were made most welcome by Tim and Sarah. We stayed in the Chaucer Room - not the biggest bedroom in the house - but one with direct access to the garden. It was a delight... More

This was probably the best B&B we stayed at in over 3 weeks in Britain and also the most expensive. Tea and cake when we arrived, Tim was very friendly but unobtrusive, and the room and bath were gorgeous and spacious. The most comfy bed AND pillows, great shower, robes and a French press in the room to boot. Their... More

My daughter and I stayed here for one night, warmly welcomed, given coffee and a slice of cake. New owners but just as attentive and friendly. Stayed in the Milton room, clean and comfortable, quaint and charming. Slept soundly and had a lovely breakfast, excellent quality, meaty sausages, tasty bacon, fresh eggs, couldn't eat it all. They booked our reservation... More

We were lucky enough to choose the Library House for a two night stay while we attended a local wedding. The owners, Tim and Sarah looked after us perfectly. The rooms are immaculately decorated and provisioned and the breakfast was perfectly cooked to order. Located in the heart of Ironbridge we were able to explore the many historic sites and... More

This Inn is centrally located since you can see the Iron Bridge from here. The Inn is spotless and the room was large and comfortable. We stayed in the Eliot room which had some street noise because of the work going on out side on the street. Breakfast was fresh, tasty, with a good variety as well as prepared to... More

We are sorry our guests were inconvenienced by the recent road works, but the latter really was beyond our control. The fact is, all of the pavements in Ironbridge have now been replaced and traffic and parking is back to normal. More

Probably the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Tim and Sarah couldn't have made us more welcome. We stayed in Milton room, lovely and comfortable good sized room, spotlessly clean.

Stayed in the Chaucer room. It had its own terrace & a beautiful view of the garden. Although the room was small, the skylights made it seem light & airy. The closet included built-in drawers, an effective use of space. The bath had lots of counter space, its own skylight, & a very usable size shower. Tim offered us tea,... More

I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Ironbridge some 25 years after our first visit. We wanted to stay at the Library House close to the centre of Ironbridge but they were fully booked. We decided to pop in on our walk around the town to see what it was like, as it had good reviews and we... More
