great location for us - a family of four with two youngish teenage sons and a red setter - fairly plain but clean and comfortable room for us and friendly owners. Stayed for one night en route from Reading to Wales. The breakfast was tasty and the whole stay well priced. Shrewsbury is a very atttractive town with lots of... More

Stayed June 2012. We were on our regimental weekend over Friday to Sunday. I would say an ideal soldiers rest. The owners are lovely and looked after us really well. I would recommend this place to all my Light Division friends. Lovely breakfast too. 💗💗💗💗💗

Our family and extended family stayed here for a party and were given a very friendly welcome. Being able to park right outside was a great bonus. The rooms are pretty small and the bathroom lighting was not great but it was more than made up for by the copious amounts of tea that was provided for our big party!... More

I chose this hotel because it is within walking distance of the RR station & sights. That said, the walk from the station is uphill the first half, past the castle & library, so be prepared or take a taxi. There is free parking on site & a small bar, nice breakfast room with small garden. Single room was very... More

Lovely hotel in a great location. Stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. The room was nice all the amenities we required. Breakfast was nice, a good selection. The hotel is close to the centre of Shrewsbury so was an easy walk to the shops and restaurants but also close to the river for a lovely stroll. Would recommend this... More

A great location, we were able to walk to the artisan shops, local restaurants and around the river. Good value for the price we paid. Lovely people and a super breakfast which they cooked to order. The double room was quite compact and the bathroom was so small it was claustrophobic.

Brilliant place to stay and location is perfect. Stopped here for one night and didn't want to come home. The pubs and restaurants are lovely and great value. The parks and rivers are a sight to behold, we never knew Shrewsbury was so big! Breakfast at the hotel is lovely too.

As with a lot of older/historical properties the bedrooms are small and hallways,stairwells and landings narrow. However the bedrooms are clean and comfortable if basic and maybe a tad dated decor wise. Also on the up side parking is available and free, breakfast is included and its a great location.
