I am glad that Premier Inn has strengthened it's presence in the lovely lush county of Shropshire!!
I was attending a folk music event at the Loggerheads pub (see my other review made on an earlier date).
Previously, fans of this hotel chain visiting Shrewsbury by rail had a trek of several miles to reach their hotel at Harmer Hill. This branch is excellently located on a disused site next to the bus station and is only a few hundred yards from Shrewsbury rail station. It is also handy for the historic town centre which is literally a few minutes stroll away, yet cannot be seen from the medieval town and hence in no way spoils it's unique character.
Opening as recently as mid-March, the hotel still feels very new. As you'd expect the rooms meet the usual Premier Inn standards - firm, yet surprisingly comfortable large beds and spotless bathrooms. Despite being near to the busy main road alongside the river, the standard of soundproofing was very good and I had no problems sleeping. Indeed I thought the hotel was rather empty, so was quite surprised going down to breakfast in the restaurant where it seemed very busy.
This hotel has a "Thyme" branded restaurant which is light and spacious. I didn't have an evening meal here but as usual the £8.25 all you can eat breakfast buffet didn't disappoint. I'm especially fond of their breakfast sausages which have a nice seasoning and aren't too greasy. Very more-ish!!
The staff in all areas of the hotel were friendly, helpful and cheerful. I'm certain to be back!!
