I took a party of 10, including 3 colleagues from China, to stay at the Valley Hotel to visit the Ironbridge museums. The location is very convenient, the staff are delightful, and the stay was very peaceful. The surprise was the restaurant - Chez Maw - that served a remarkable dinner on the night of our arrival. Really very good food and excellent service. The hotel has a lot of rooms, so breakfast can be a bit of a scrum, some of the service (afternoon tea) is a bit canteen-like, and the rooms are ok-ish, but these comments miss the point of the hotel. The building has a great location, borders wonderful gardens, is near the Severn, is walking distance from the Ironbridge, has encaustic tiles dating back to the 1700's decorating the stairs and is staffed generally by very kind, well meaning folks. All in all, a good stay.
One comment, we left on Saturday morning, and enjoyed peace and quiet drying our stay. It is probably worth checking to ensure there isn't a wedding when you plan to visit, two parties arrived on the Friday / Saturday we were there - I expect Saturday will be noisy!
