Reviewed 27 May 2014

Wonderful hotel, excellent food, warm and welcoming staff - nothing is too much trouble there. Highly recommend for a relaxing weekend. The rooms in the old part of the hotel are amazing. Very comfortable bed and lovely bathroom.

Room Tip: choose one of the rooms in the old buildings - more expensive but very well worth it

Spent 2 nights in this lovely old hotel. It is in need of some updating but is quite charming. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Dinner was rather disappointing as there was little choice for vegetarians and portions rather small. There was a wedding on the second day of our stay and the music did go on until 1am and it could be heard in our room. It is always difficult for hotels to cope with wedding parties alongside other guests but they should really limit the level of sound and also the duration of the party and finish before midnight so that other people can at least get some sleep. Drinks were also a little overpriced.

Room Tip: Ask about weddings, and request a room in the main building.

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
