“A pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

I had never heard of this chain before and didn't know what to expect. Well, the Premier Inns should worry! The rooms were quite a surprise: air conditioning, a nice armchair with a foot stool, a proper desk chair, iron and ironing board, a hairdryer (not attached to the wall) very nice soft furnishings and the bathroom had hand soap and lotion, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There are more expensive hotels out there that don't supply half of these extras. The down side to me was the bar/restaurant. I was on my own on this occasion and the dining area was very small with the tables very close together making me feel slightly uncomfortable so much so I didn't have the breakfast. If they could improve on this, this hotel would be a hard act to follow.

Aside from Premier's better pillows Hampton by Hilton is about the best of the budget hotel chains but its a close run thing. Extras over Premiers are the air-conditioning in the rooms, complimentary hot breakfast from very early even on Sunday, free wi-fi and the walk-in showers with integral seats. Mattresses and pillows not as nice as Premier but overall I find this chain of hotels better. The pricing policy is unambiguous unlike others who have low price offers that i never managed to find when booking.

This Shrewsbury Hampton is quiet as it has no function suite which are often the cause of a disturbed night in other fancier hotels. It is conveniently placed on the southern outskirts of the town with a supermarket with filling station not far away for any travelling supplies that you need.

I have now stayed here over a dozen times with no issues whatsoever and will be there in a fortnight and at least six times next year. It does book out quickly so you need to get in early especially if you are going to Shrewsbury on the weekend of the big flower show.

Room Tip: Unless you really must keep an eye on the car park if you want a quiet room ask for one at the back...

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel. Having not used this chain of hotels before I wasn't sure what to expect. The room was well appointed, although not all fixtures were 100% clean and there was a small crack in the sink. From a personal point of view the main frustration, although some may consider this quite minor, was the lack of plug socket by the bed. However, despite this, everything worked well and the breakfast was fulsome and of generally good quality. I would consider this hotel if I was to stay in the vacanity again.

Stayed here in June. Lovely rooms, reasonable quiet bar, good service, cannot fault. It's miles better than most cheaper hotels, and a good price. Good location, good parking, and free wifi.

The rooms were akin to a 4-5 star holiday hotel - very, very nice!

Loved it. And believe me, I am a fussy customer.

Nice clean modern hotel with comfy beds, great showers and friendly, helpful staff. A few additions would make it excellent- biscuits in room, trouser press in room, and better quality croissants at breakfast.

This was our second stay in this quite new hotel, situated in a business park a couple of miles from Shrewsbury. The room was excellent, all we needed and the breakfast next morning was basic but fine. For an overnight stay the hotel provided everything we wanted - very happy to recommend it to others.
