Hotel is in a great spot but looks nothing like the pictures on the website... its an old hotel and you expect uneven floors, creaky doors etc. but the place is tired and needs some money spending on it. Our room was large but had a musty smell to it, big lump of plaster missing off the wall next to... More

Stayed in a twin room in The Prince Rupert Hotel which was in a great location in the centre of Shrewsbury. It was at a busy time because there was a big flower show in the town that obviously attracts a lot of visitors. You can drop the car off outside the door and a member of staff parks your... More

Stayed one night when visiting the Flower Show, arrived early but there was no problem luggage put in a locked room until later, when we arrived back at the hotel our suitcases had been put into our room. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was good beds comfortable. Breakfast very good. It was a bit noisy outside but... More

Stayed over for one night, my third trip in seven years Really disappointed, the twin room was very small, tired and a bit grubby. Poor standard drinks tray and very average breakfast attended to by a very curt and brusque Supervisor. Each visit the standards have dropped and prices have risen, £165 is not deserved. Strongly urge you to avoid

My wife and I visited the Prince Rupert Hotel for one night (Wednesday). Whilst looking for a hotel I wanted somewhere historical in the town, tripadviser looked promising so I called and booked. Instructions came back to park at the front of the hotel where a valet service would take my car to a nearby car park. Popped the postcode... More

So I stayed at the prince Rupert just last week and walking up to the hotel it was looking good. The walk up was up a beautiful old cobbled lane with bars and shops and it was stunning. On arrival the reception staff were lovely helpful and informative. After receiving my key I headed up stairs to my room and... More

Having read up on previous reviews we knew the hotel was central and had a history, these were the two main reasons we chose it for our stay in Shrewsbury. Arriving at the door then having our car taken to be parked was a great help. We found that the maze of corridors and squeaky stairs and floorboards added to... More

Beautiful hotel in a building dating back to the 15th century or even earlier - so yes it is dated ! Centrally located for all the ample pleasures that Shrewsbury has to offer, yet despite close proximity of one inn and several bistros in Butcher Row the rooms are peaceful retreats. We had the Charles Louis Suite which is incredible... More

The hotel is tucked away behind the Main Street, and is lovely. Everything was nice from the welcoming glass of sherry, the balcony overlooking the town, and the excellent food. We were on a dinner bed and breakfast tariff and the set menu had five or six choices for each course. All the staff were very helpful. Some of the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The historic grade II listed Prince Rupert Hotel is situated in the very heart of medieval Shrewsbury and just a short stroll from the individual shops and many tourist attractions. Surrounded by narrow cobblestone streets and black and white timbered buildings it provides the perfect base to explore beautiful Shrewsbury. A warm and friendly welcome is always provided to all guests with a glass of sherry on arrival. With the heritage of the hotel dating back to the 12th and 15th century, character and charm abound with sloping floors, exposed Tudor beams and a restored Jacobean staircase. Privately owned for many years by Michael & Diane Matthews, the hotel offers a great choice of dining all with a focus on fresh local produce. The Royalist is ideal for a special occasion with an a la carte menu together with a superb wine list. Chambers brasserie is renowned for its traditional British menu at sensible prices and located at the front of the hotel overlooking the gardens of St. Alkmunds square, Camellias Tea Rooms offers an extensive menu selection including traditional afternoon tea served on a three tier cake stand. A charming place to relax to the sound of a grand piano. FREE valet parking is provided to the hotel's private car park. ... more   less
