Good location to explore Shrewsbury. The room was spacious but very dated. Breakfast was good with helpful staff. The mattresses and pillows were of very poor quality and needed replacing. The TV was a very small 12" model. The bathroom was very small and dated and the shower operated at little more than a trickle. With no air conditioning in the bedroom it made sleeping difficult especially as the window could only be partially opened (for H and S reasons) - we were however furnished with a fan for our second night. The lift was not working (transpired hadn't been working for some weeks) - as our bedroom was on the 3rd floor it was not an ideal situation, especially when it came to carrying our luggage. The hotel overall is in dire need of upgrading and renovating.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your recent stay with us at the hotel.We are looking into a refurbishment of the hotel, this should hopefully begin in the near future! The lift is being completely replaced as it is not deemed fit to be working, i do apologies about this. Kind Regards

As a whole the property was clean, the staff were very good, pleasant and approachable The property really needs an upgrade, it would be nice to keep the original features due to the age of the hotel, but everywhere needs new floorboards and carpets. Lots of odds and sods about in the hallways which is unnecessary Parking is an issue there are limited spaces and you can't guarantee you are going to get a space

Very central hotel. Grade 1 listed building, so has a beautiful interior. The only thing which let's it down is the lounge. The sofas are extremely dirty. I just couldn't sit in there. Everything needs a good steam clean! Also got a green insect in my dinner. The staff and chef were very apologetic and gave us vouchers for 2 complimentary drinks.

Lovely old building, staff friendly and helpful, bedroom fine, carpet and furnishing looking a bit tired but lovely hot water and bed good. Breakfast food was excellent. Good value for money and just a short walk into the centre.
