Basic accommodation, good value in central location. Digital TV and free Wi-Fi. Commendable use of a listed building.

Well what can I say! Really upsetting! Thankfully it was for only one night. Our room was drab, smelly, wallpaper ripped from the walls, dirty carpet, not good.
The pictures on their website are very miss leading, and we were asked to pay as soon as we got there, probably because most people would run away once they see the rooms.

Myself and my partner booked into this B&B for one night last Friday 10th Sept based on their website. The pictures are NOT an accurate description - and in hindsight wish it also had Smellyvision! The instant you walk into the small doorway you are faced with a narrow stairwell with dirty smelly carpet. The whole place needs gutting and starting from scratch. The room was disgusting (room 4) and I took pictures on my camera of the evidence if anyone would like proof. Overall, it was a tired, smelly, dirty interior. The furniture was broken with missing handles and looked like it was obtained from a skip. The carpet was stained throughout with random cigarette burns. The ceiling had damp with peeling chipboard wallpaper. The decor was brown and yellow (!?) with cheap curtains. The bathroom had ingrained dirt over the entire area and I refused to use the shower. The one redeeming feature was actually the staff who were very friendly. We are not sure what the other rooms were like but can only comment on ours. Please do not go here if you are used to a certain standard of hygiene. Advice for the owners? - get the whole place steam cleaned and spend some money on your business. A waste of a lovely building.

I stayed at the Lucroft on a multi-day cycle across Britain. I have lots of experience of similarly priced B&B's and Lucroft was one of the stand-out establishments.

They were cyclist friendly, and gave me a place to store my bike safely.

The room rates reasonable, and the room itself immaculately clean with an ensuite and flatscreen tv with freeview.

Breakfast was nice, served by the friendly staff with no problems or complaints at all.

I stay in Shrewsbury once a month for family reasons.I tried a few establishments,then came across the best Hotel in town.The location is perfect as I am always rushing for trains (1 min away) and being smack bang in the city centre its also great for eating out and the shops.The Hotel itself has under gone a huge transformation since I first visited in 2008. The en-suite room is a dream,& the single/double rooms tastefully decorated. The pricing is excellent if you compare others and I reckon with breakfast thrown in, there are few hotels able to offer a central location,freshly prepared breakfast, and genuine, attentive staff at such decent rates.The owner is very adept at knowing what her guests require. I have no hesitation in recommending this hidden gem.It's perfect.Ignore the negative reviews and see for yourself.
