We stayed here overnight and were disappointed. the room and hotel is tired and needs a major upgrade. The bed and en suite were clean. The en suite is miniscule in the corner of the room and shower is even smaller - anyone above average size will not be able to fit into it.
This hotel is leased by HF Holiday (which runs guided walking tours around the world) and they are aiming to purchase it this year. That's ok , except if they have a group of walkers booked into the hotel - then they appear to get preference over rooms - we could not get a room with the splendid views over the hills and valley - we had a view at the front looking over the car park and trees. The dining room was taken over by the walkers - we ate in the bar bistro (which is ok) but we were constrained on the times we could eat , because of the priority to feed the walkers. The food was average. The floor in some of the common areas are at different levels with small steps , which a trip hazzard. The hotel is in a good location , on a hill on top of the village - but it needs a major rehabilitation. I would look for alternative accommodation if I ever want to stay in the area again.

- The Longmynd dates from the early 1900s and originally attracted Edwardian visitors to the 'Little Switzerland' of Church Stretton.
