“If you love pretty historic hotels you will love this one.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

We were greeted warmly and found our stay very pleasant with good food and good service. However the décor is a little faded and dated in places but don't let this put you off it was clean and we had no real complaints. Dinner was excellent and presented and cooked to a very high standard. Shrewsbury is a lovely town and Shropshire offers some of the U.K.s finest places to visit both historically and the scenery is breath taking.

Room Tip: Decide if you love old with character or just functional before choosing your room.

We have stayed at this hotel (where we married sixteen years ago) on and off and regard it as a treat to stay overnight in one of the suites in the old part of the hotel. This time we were in the wonderful Hussey Suite. The staff were very helpful kind and efficient.
We'd altered our booking from Friday to Thursday and may be that coincided with the chef's night off. We had gone for the Taster Menu and whilst the beef was splendid the other courses were at best mediocre and nothing like as exciting and appetising as our previous experience.
The moral must be - keep it simple

Room Tip: Stay in the old part

Stayed at the Hussey Manor Hotel for one night, wish it could have been more. The room & bathroom was extremity well decorated and good sized. Lovely comfortable bed and pretty views. Stayed for evening meal, which was very good. Perfect for a quiet short break (couples etc).

This must once have a been the most beautiful manor house! The old building is stunning outside and the garden and moat are absolutely charming. I loved the swans and pottering around on the lawn. However, it's a shame that they are building a recycling works a couple of fields away. This and the pylons do spoil an otherwise lovely countryside view.

Generally, I was otherwise disappointed.

The hideous 1990's room block looks terrible and as others have said, it's deeply disappointing. The room decor is bizarre. The rooms are small and the bathrooms badly appointed but the whole hotel looks like a low end bric-a-brac shop with too much stock. There is stuff everywhere! The pub carpets are foul and the windowless bar and lounge is claustrophobic and appallingly decorated.

Dinner was adequate. It was basic pub grub with re-heated veg and overdone, processed beef and the restaurant stuffy and airless. Thank goodness there was an extensive wine list! Breakfast was adequate. There is no gym or spa.

On a plus point, the wifi is good and the staff friendly - if a little overbearing.

I get the feeling that this hotel suits older, traditional and less experienced travellers best. I don't recommend it and wouldn't return.

Took a while to find it as my sat nav didn’t like the location. Upon leaving the road and following the lane down to the building you’re greeted by a wonderful old English building, which upon leaving the car and walking up to the reception area is even better with the garden and water area with bird life.
The building is split into two the historic and modern I stayed in both.
The modern is decorated well and had good views over the abundant farm land which was great as they were preparing the ground. The bed was comfortable and amenities such as bath/shower etc as expected. The room in the old building was very atmospheric, wood beams, lead windows, four poster`, furniture etc. The bath room was great very floral. The view was over the garden and water feature . Bar was small but fits in well with the building and restaurant well decorated with two main areas and smaller alcoves. Evening meals were good Calves liver, steaks etc (though would have liked a steak knife) Cheese board wonderful and a good selection of red wines
There is a very enthusiastic manager who really helps make the place along with the other very attentive staff.
The walk from the hotel to the nearby church and battle grounds was really relaxing and if you push a little further on there’s a coffee shop and farm shop with livestock all worth a look.
The whole old place ouses old country England in the times around the Tudors.

Room Tip: Just for the feel of the place stay in the old building

I booked to stay in this hotel because I wanted a special hotel preferably with historic content, lovely peaceful surroundings, tasteful and with a fantastic restaurant with good service and friendly professional staff. I was not disappointed, from the beautiful exterior, gardens and moat with the black swans to the classically opulent decor and sitting rooms ( a lovely bar to sit and have a drink). Our room was no 12 and overlooked the entrance to the building . It was a good size room with a large bathroom (the toilet was a bit old and the bottom of the bath a bit worn, but it was very clean and did not bother me ) the bed was very comfortable and we had a very peaceful sleep. The views from the window were nice.. The food was of a very high standard. Malcolm the manager and his staff are a credit to this tasteful hotel. For very special occasions the suites are a must as I had a peek at one of them. We stayed in March but would like to return in summer time as it would be lovely to sit in the gardens and have a drink after dinner. If you have class and taste stay here, if you do not stay at the Travelodge.

I could not fault the wondrous setting of this beautiful period building on the northern outskirts of Shrewsbury. Romantic, dreamy, and delightful. The dining and reception rooms are truly gorgeous, and everything is beautifully presented. The staff are friendly and warm.

Howevever, after being promised fantastic views of the Shropshire countryside (which are there, I assure you!) I was allocated Room 25 which is at the end of what feels like an annexe, although I'm assured it is very much part of the hotel. The room was very nice, would have been a bit tight for two, but the point is that from the window the view was over the car park. Cars were parked within inches of my only window and the countryside was pretty much obscured. The walls were the constituency of cardboard and I could hear everything from the room next door, in fact was awakened at 6.30am by loud sounds from the bathroom ..... which were not pleasant.
I was assured that there were 'truly lovely' rooms elsewhere in this 'annexe', as I was checking out, which didn't make up for my lack of sleep due to the noises from the adjoining room. Plus horrible lumpy pillows. It really felt as though I were in a cheap boarding house.
This was a shame as the evening had been delightful, lovely restaurant, good food, and excellent service. Unfortunately I discovered that my glasses of Sauvignon Blanc were charged at £10.50 each. Outrageous! Being told prices were displayed on the wine list was not good enough. Residents do not sign for drinks and I suggest that when you go to the bar and ask for a glass of white wine you ask to be advised of the exceedingly high prices and few choices. Shame. I do hate to be exploited.

Room Tip: Request a room in the main hotel on an upper floor. The walls should be thicker and the view pretti...
