Hi had the pleasure of attending a very lovely birthday party here last evening. The staff could not be more helpful. The birthday banquet was outstanding. Breakfast this morning was also excellent. You may be wondering why only three stars ? The bedrooms are very dated , a most uncomfortable bed that creaked all night long , for the price... More

We have visited Shrewsbury many times but never sampled the nightlife as it's a little too far away. Due to this we booked the Prince Philip Suite at the hotel to stay the night. First impressions of this beautiful hotel were very pleasing, the reception staff attentive and the decor very in keeping of it's Tudor style. Our Suite was... More

Stayed one night in room 101 in September 2016. Nice exterior but I felt the reception.was old and needed redecorating. I appreciate there is a fine line between charming and tired and I felt this was starting to drift in to the latter category. He same is true of the bedroom I had but the bathroom.had been renovated and was... More

Came here for the last leg of our honeymoon tour, wanting to explore the city from a central old fashioned hotel. Upon arrival we found a very busy receptionist who barely had time to welcome us, not unfriendly, but not friendly either. We then got directions to our room that were totally inadequate given the complexity of the layout. I... More

Lovely hotel which is very well placed in the centre of the city for exploring its old history. Staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice. I would recommend staying in this hotel just because of its history and the ambience of the place. My only minor comment in the... More

This was my first overnight stay in one of my favourite towns. The Rupert did not disappoint. It is a very old building - creaking floors etc - but my room had a very modern bathroom and good amenities. Although it was a single it felt spacious because of carefully chosen furniture. The staff are super-friendly and helpful, taking a... More

I visited with a friend so had booked a twin room which was on the first floor. The room was clean but so very very much in need of updating. I paid £125 and an extra £5 to park my car (which was fine for valet parking). We ate at their bistro on the Saturday evening which only had another... More

My partner and i have just had a two day stay at The Prince Rupert Hotel in Shrewsbury and loved every minute of it. If your looking for clean lines and modern comfort this is not the place for you. Its old, creepy, and creaky and full of character. The staff are helpful and friendly and the food served is... More

We hadn't been to the Prince Rupert for a few years so we were delighted to find that it was better than we had remembered it. Right in the middle of the old part of Shrewsbury, it is perfectly located for a visit to the town. Most importantly for us, it's very much not a modern standard box hotel that... 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
