We chose The Clive for our first visit to Ludlow and the area because of the attractive 'chintz free' rooms.
As other reviewers have commented, the rooms are right next to the Food Centre which is a nice place for a mooch about.
Unfortuntely, when we stayed there - in the summer - it was extremely wet and so the scenic walk into Ludlow didn't really appeal. As a result, we were limited to tiny Bromfield for the evening which wasn't our Plan A. The Clive restaurant were good about accommodating us even though they were fully booked for a wedding and we enjoyed a good, well presented meal.
Breakfast was pretty good although the timing was a bit haphazard because I think the staff were stretched the weekend we stayed.
Initially, we were shown to a room which opened directly on to the car park which wasn't great but we were offered an alternative, twin room up in the eaves which was much more like the images on the website and really charming.
I think it you are after a restaurant with rooms then this fits the bill but if you want to hang out in Ludlow in the evening, or if you usually make use of the communal areas when staying in a hotel then maybe this isn't the best option.
