We booked this "budget" hotel as part of our return from Hay and a chance to see somewhere we had never been before. The hotel ticked all the boxes because of time of arrival, assured facilities and price. The room was spacious and well set up. Not budget cramped! Above all, the room was clean! The bed was two singles joined together; one mattress perfect, the other squidgy!
The location is not the most spectacular but easy to find and quiet. The location, and lack of local amenities/facilities keeps this hotel at a 4*.
The "free" wifi was very welcome and the "free" breakfast tasty and ample. The free newspaper was a good touch and very well received.
I would certainly recommend this hotel as part of a tour or journey pause or, as in our case, as a base to tour the stunning city of Shrewsbury.
