We stayed here for a weekend break after an impulsive decision to go and discover Shrewsbury. We weren't disappointed - either with the hotel or the town. The hotel is situated right in the heart of the town, so on arrival the valet took our car away to a car park located a short walking distance away, as the narrow streets and cobbled slopes don't allow for a car park on site. We asked the receptionist for a recommendation on where to get lunch, and she was very helpful, offering us a couple of great suggestions, accompanied by a very welcome glass of sherry (nice touch!).
The bedroom was pleasant with a huge modern bathroom. Everything looked clean and the bed was comfortable. After a fabulous day out exploring Shrewsbury, and a lovely evening out in the town, we went back to the hotel pretty late and enjoyed a night cap in the lounge. Breakfast the next morning was in the wood-panelled dining room, and we ate a delicious meal of fruit, toast and a full English, while the spirits of ancient soldiers stood guard over us in their shiny suits of armour.
The hotel staff were courteous and friendly, the location was spot-on, and I would definitely consider returning for another weekend break.
