Not the greatest
Weather cold outside and at times even colder in our room. Grateful for larger portable heater provided on request. With this we managed to just heat the room sufficiently. The central heating was a shambles. On at 8am for about an hour, mainly tepid. Far too late as breakfast started then. Like ice on our return early evening and came on about 11pm for a short while. No WiFi capability in our particular room. Had to use corridor, outside area or pub, which was also cold in the evening. WiFi code from nearby cafe worked better! It didn't make for a relaxing stay. Breakfast OK but nothing special. However, very well situated for the sights of Shrewsbury. Excellent nearby cafes and restaurants. Beautiful scenery and walks along the banks of the Severn. OK for a night or two at a warmer time of year.

Decent stay. Good price and fab full English.
Just needed a cheap one night stop over on our way to South Wales and Shrewsbury was perfect. Room was basic but spacious and clean. Great central location. Parking slightly challenging and early delivery rather noisy, but overall a good stay. Highlights? Location, late check in till 11pm and an excellent full English included.
