Our room was well furnished and a good double size. You could tell it was listed as the old windows had gaps (brr) but this was ok as the curtains were fully lined and the heating was good. The floorboards in our room were ok but upstairs was terrible and every step was loud creaks. Can't be helped but no good for light sleepers who want a lay in!
The room was very clean.
Receptionist was not welcoming or particularly friendly.
Breakfast was ok, nothing special, but nothing wrong with it. Service for breakfast was disorganised - we waited 20 minutes for a pot of tea - our breakfast arrived before it! Waiters/waitresses didn't seem to have a strategy and were not assigned tables. The salt and pepper pots needed cleaning.
The location was perfect. Right at the start of the high street and ideal for exploring shrewsbury.
Parking was tight, limited and we didn't go out in the car as we're concerned about getting a space as the hotel had an event on and there was football on that day. It was £10 to park.
We would recommend the hotel but would advise users to take on board all the above.
We paid £89 for 2 nights via KGB - well worth that price.
