Stayed here for one night last weekend which happened to coincide with the river festival and good old British sunshine for a change!!! Tim greeted us with a smile and made us feel relaxed right from the moment the front door opened. The Library House is in a superb location and an ideal base from which to explore Your surroundings.... More

I have to agree with the other reviews. Spotlessly clean, lovely food, welcoming hosts who did not mind us poking about in their garden. We were in the Chaucer room which opens out onto the garden. The room is small but we knew this when booking. You can hear the nearby church clock chiming out the hours day and night,... More

Peaceful slice of heaven. Immaculately clean. Beautifully decorated. The perfect middle of our vacation treat. Wish I could live here. It really was like visiting a favorite family member's home. Located right by the iron bridge

We found the Library House on Trip Advisor and couldn't have been happier. We were welcomed with tea and coffee in the garden complete with slices of fruit cake, admittedly the weather was gorgeous but what a fabulous gesture all the same. We stayed in the Eliot room which overlooked a courtyard type area and the gorge just across the... More

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.

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
