Made very welcome by staff but was in for the shock of my life!! If you have no appreciation of personal hygiene, sleep quality or basic standards, this is the place for you. Flies on the landing, window wouldn't close so an earful of a main traffic route into shrewsbury, soiled bathroom, unhygienic bedding, no coffee or tea making facilities,... More

The room was filthy, the bathroom was also filthy and stank of urine. By far the worst B&B I have ever had the misfortune to be in. I shall be talking to Shrewsbury council in the morning as this place should be closed down

You can hear the noise from the bedroom, although I have to say snuggled into the comfortable bed I was very... More
