Perfect for a short stay away. Right in the centre of Shrewsbury but with an aura of calm. The houses position means that views stretch out across Shropshire with very little to show anything from this century or the last. A truly luxurious stay - great rooms, great food, great welcome. Looking forward to our tour with Tony later!

We stayed in the Mary Tudor room, which was very comfortable and quiet. The bed is also very comfortable. The tour of the house was really interesting and Tony is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for looking around Shrewsbury.

This was our second visit to the Old House Suites. We stayed for three nights in the gorgeous Mary Tudor suite. We simply can't recommend a stay at the Old House Suites highly enough. The suites are stunning, beds and linens are beautiful as well as supremely comfortable - it feels like such a privilege to be able to stay... More

My 14 friends and I rented out the whole property for a birthday weekend! Lovely rooms, great history and loved the hidden basement bar! At £77 for both nights per person it was a bargain and would highly recommend! Beautiful rooms and views from the garden....will be back in the summer!!

What a delightful place to stay! We stayed in the Catherine of Aragon suite which was superb. Large bedroom with the most comfortable bed, a separate sitting room with TV and table at which breakfast was served each morning. The suite also had a shower room and separate bathroom with claw foot bath. Tony and Mary made us very welcome... More

What a find. This accommodation is right in the centre of Shrewsbury. We stayed in The Catherine of Aregon suite which comprised of a large bedroom, large sitting room where breakfast was brought to us, a bathroom and separate shower room. The rooms were a lot larger than any in our house! I can't believe what good value this place... More

Staying here is certainly an experience, the house dates back to early 1500s and has many original features. For anyone interested in the history of that time staying here is a must. We stayed in the Mary Tudor Suite which overlooks the rear garden and we were not disappointed. The room is huge and the en-suite comes with a bath... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old House in Dogpole sits on an original Anglo-Saxon plot leading down to the River Severn. After the Norman Conquest in 1066, Shrewsbury was fortified and the town wall cut through the garden, but the plot remained intact. The house was rebuilt as a timber framed Tudor mansion around two massive brick chimneys in the late 1490s and retains much of this original character. The house had strong connections with Catherine of Aragon. She married Arthur (brother of Henry VIII) at nearby Ludlow Castle in South Shropshire where she finally returned after her divorce from her later marriage to Henry VIII. Members of the Rocke family were courtiers of Catherine and also owners of The Old House, and there is a tradition that Mary Tudor stayed in the house on her way to visit her mother. ... more   less
