Pleasant stay in Shropshire
Easy to find, and easy parking outside the front entrance. Very friendly and swift check in, and lots of attention to Covid safety regulations. Not the best room we've ever stayed in, but very clean, comfortable and functional. Shower smelled rather musty like it hadn't been used in a long time, and the hot and cold labels on the shower tap were the wrong way round. Excellent hot breakfast served with a smile. Good location for exploring Shrewsbury and surrounding area. We had a pleasant stay.

Can't wait to go back!
Staff were so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We were made to feel right at home. Upgraded to king size room (honeymoon suite?). It was fantastic. They are Covid safe too and everything well cleaned with sanitiser around the hotel. The breakfast was really tasty - great croissants!
