“Quite a distance from the town centre but clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012 via mobile

A pleasant stay in this modern hotel but a long walk into town. Situated in a business park. The staff were friendly and helpful. My only gripe would be that the dining room for breakfast felt a bit cramped and sky news was on at quite loud volume. Free Today newspaper. I would recommend it

I stayed here for 1 mid week night. I paid a very reasonable £42 room rate which included breakfast and internet access. Staff were helpful and friendly. The room was clean, modern and of a good size. Parking was plentiful and free. Food was available for evening meals as well as breakfast.
Its quite a small but functional hotel and I was happy to have stayed here. Thumbs up from me.

This is a business hotel on a business park on the edge of Shrewsbury. It is also popular with tourists and visitors at weekends. We stayed Saturday night for a family party in Shrewsbury, having previously been very unimpressed with the quality of hotels in central Shrewsbury. For the price (£50 double room inc breakfast) it is exceptional in quality and value.The restaurant and bar area are a bit "Premiere Inn", but the rooms are large with very comfortable beds and brilliant showers (no baths I think).

We used this hotel as a halfway point on our journey to a wedding in West Wales. Coveniently located just off the main route we used. Rooms were of a very high quality:large bed and room, lovely toiletries in the bathroom and the breakfast (self-service) was good. There was a good selection at breakfast of both hot and cold and the fact that it was served from 6am was a bonus for us as we needed to leave early. Excellent value. Would stay again.

As the title says, it was a return visit with the date selected being the best price of that week. This remains our preferred hotel in Shrewsbury where parking is difficult. Here, there is ample parking. The hotel is clean, modern and dependable. Breakfast is ample, hot and plenty of it. The beds are really comfortable and the bathrooms are modern. For a short stay, this is ideal.
Avoid room 108 because of electronic humming, possible from a very large aerial at the side.
The heating is fiddly. If it's cold, check it's actually set to 'heat'!
On this occasion, the room should have been carefully checked. A mug had not been washed thoroughly, a small point in a hotel with high standards.

Room Tip: Avoid room 108 (upstairs at end)

The Hampton by Hilton Shrewsbury is located just off the A458 and A5 Motorways.
*On the drive toward the town of Shrewsbury there is a large shopping plaza where one can buy supplies or a meal.
*The hotel is located (via car) about 10 min. West from Wroxeter Roman City, 20 min. from Ironbridge Gorge.
*Its about 30 min. North of Stokesay Castle (which I totally recommend visiting! )

Using this hotel as a base for a holiday in and around Shrewsbury is easily workable.

Other reviewers have mentioned the hotel water pressure. I thought it was fantastic too! The beds were comfortable and my family had a good night’s sleep.

The gated lot was a bit odd and the hotel exterior seems out-dated, but please don’t let that put you off. It seems an attempt was made to update the interior, with focus on the common areas. The bedrooms could use further updating. The color scheme is drab, but the room set up is very functional.


Our stay included a complimentary breakfast which I thought was much better than the breakfasts offered in the US Hampton Inns. The eggs were fresh, English bacon (which is similar to American Ham) was served along with delicious pork & parsley sausages, and potatoes. A selection of Juices, teas, coffees, milk were available, as were cereals, breads, pastries. Overall, it was an excellent breakfast spread.

Keeping in mind that the Hampton is mainly a no-frills hotel, with a focus on the practical and not the fluff/ pampering, I thought our stay here was very good and happily recommend it to you too.

We used this hotel as a stop over on route to north wales. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Hotel staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was good. Location wise, it was just outside of Shrewsbury, which suited our needs.

Hotel was good value for money.
