Stayed here as part of a group so didn't have a choice, although believe me, I really wouldn't stay here through choice (see my review of 2 years ago!) There was actually somewhere to park this time and I received a pleasant welcome from the young male receptionist. I'd booked a single room but was 'upgraded' to a double, room 11 at the back of the hotel. Light airy room but smelled strongly of damp and the rickety old windows were soaking wet with condensation. I put the kettle on to make a cuppa but the milk in the room was off (as it also was 2 years ago when I stayed here!) and the teaspoon holder had thick brown grime in the bottom. The bed was reasonably comfortable, but I think they'd bought the bedding in about 1973! There was a semi decent flat screen tv fixed to the wall, but when you turned it off with the remote control, a bright blue light proceeded to flash, so much that I thought there was an ambulance in the room! So, I still had to get back out of bed to turn it off at the wall switch. The front of the chest of drawers was absolutely filthy, and the wardrobe was a bodge job made by an un-handy handyman. Bathroom ceiling was filthy and covered in cobwebs. Taps were broken. Breakfast was passable although the waitress was.....interesting. Everyone who entered the restaurant went and sat down and she immediately asked them to move to a different table for no apparent reason! The toast was slightly warmed bread, but the cooked-to-order poached eggs were superb! Bridgnorth is a beautiful, interesting little town but this very poor hotel lets it down. I'm amazed its still in existence!
