OK, this is my first time I have ever written a review on Tripadvisor - but I felt compelled to do so because of the appalling night's sleep both me and my wife had at the Lion & Pheasant.
As a regular guest at Mr & Mrs Smith hotels, I can genuinely say that the building has been sympathetically restored, with exposed timber beams etc. The guest spaces and lounges are very pleasant, and it's central location is excellent - but this is also the main problem. Many of the rooms are overlooking the main road into Shrewsbury, and if you were unlucky enough like me to get one on the corner (room 6 if you are interested), then you will get 2 separate sets of windows that hit you with street noise. The rooms are OK, but small, which doesn't help the feeling that you are literally sleeping above the street.
The double-glazing is completely inadequate, so I recommend you bring ear-plugs.
I know that people use/stay in hotels for many reasons - the reviews of the food and ambience are excellent - but the lack of mention of anything 'peaceful' about this hotel is for a reason.More
