I stayed for 2 nights with a friend and everything was just spot on.
I arrived, parked and James came out, took my bag for me and saw me inside. Got registered and he took my bag and showed me to my room. He explained everything fully and was very good at front of house.
When my friend arrived, he saw her in and got us both a lovely cocktail. The bar has an extensive cocktail menu (we tried a few) and they are made perfectly. Alex took over in the evening and took our dinner order and continued to serve our cocktails.
Dinner was fabulous, great presentation and delicious flavours. I did discover that all the desserts had cream in but they kindly brought me a cheese board.
The room was very nicely decorated and looks like it's been done by an interior designer. Beds very comfortable and the room and en suite had everything you would need in a hotel.
I did worry that it would be noisy being next to the train station but heard nothing.
Breakfast was served by Val, who was extremely attentive and helpful.
After our day out in Shrewsbury, we came back to enjoy a few more cocktails before dinner. James had spoken to the chef (Dan) about me unable to eat cream and he had taken the time to make a chocolate fondant especially for me which I though was very special and over and above - and was delicious.
Overall, the hotel is fantastic but a strange location. This would be ideal for anyone to stay, business or pleasure. I would highly recommend it to anybody and if this way or nearby again, would not hesitate to stay again.
Thanks to all for making the stay so good.
