Albright Hussey Manor Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 November 2010

This could be a lovely hotel as its got fantastic views. However the mix of old and new is far from pleasing. Our room in the modern block was shabby to say the least and the bathroom basic and without a window. The bed was very uncomfortable and the bedding thin and worn. The furniture poor reproduction and TV had limited choice. There was nothing welcoming about the room infact the cards and messages left for visitors attention informing them of charges they would incur if they left any belongings or over indulged in alcohol were very stern and unfriendly. The breakfast was just about acceptable but the evening meal, room service and bar prices were very expensive.This hotel was neither friendly or comfortable and for what we paid I expected a lot more.

stayed at the Hussey for 2 days whilst on business in Shrewsbury and was again agreeably surprised by the welcome and general level of service. Staff all friendly, good food and comfy rooms, the manager even remembered me from my last visit. Will definitely be back.

I suspect this is a hotel of two halves. We stayed in the Royalist suite in the old part of the hotel and the quality could not be faulted. The larger part of the hotel is a very recent extension and from the outside looks like a travel lodge, although we did not see the inside of the rooms. The attention from staff was second to none and the evening meal was superb, and reasonably priced. I stay in hotels across the UK, and many in Europe, for business and pleasure and I would have no hesitation in staying here again (certainly in the old part of the building), or dining in the restaurant.

Located in the country side north of Shrewsbury, surrounded by green pasture land the four star Albright Hussey Manor Hotel is nevertheless easy to find, especially with a GPS. The original manor house dating back to 1524 has been lovingly restored and is filled with antique furnishings, clocks, paintings and implements. With its beautiful gardens it is a popular venue for weddings, and its classy wood beamed restaurant serves excellent food, including a chocolate mousse to die for. Service from check-in to dinner and breakfast is rendered graciously with an apparent attitude of wanting to please. Ample free parking on site is available, and a computer terminal with free internet access is available for guest use.

Depending on one's preference, rooms are available in the classic old manor house or in the newer, modern annex. Our nicely furnished ground floor room in the annex with comfortable twin beds and a modern bath was as quiet as can be. One could hear a pin drop, very different from what other reviewers have noted. The rate of 95GBP included breakfast and is commensurate with what is offered. Should we be again in the area in the future, we would look no further but gladly stay here again

My wife and I have just returned from a delightful weekend in Shropshire staying at the superb Albright Hussey Hotel.

Being over 500 years old main part of this enchanting hotel and restaurant is steeped in history. Although a tasteful modern section has been added that doesn’t detract from the original picturesque manor house for those with a love of more contemporary furnishings.
Overlooking the moat and beautiful gardens our accommodation was the fabulous Royalist Suite complete leaded glass windows magnificent oak beams and a beautifully carved king sized four poster bed.

The food and service in the gorgeous restaurant can only described as exquisite as the chief here really excels both with presentation and flavour.
The hotel staff are thoughtful and considerate providing the perfect blend of friendliness without being fussy or over attentive.

All in all the perfect place to enjoy a romantic relaxing weekend away while charming Shropshire countryside.

Be warned its not exactly what it appears to be . The majority of the bedrooms are in an adjoining modern block, with bedrooms walls so you can hear next door doing just about everything ! charming .... The modern block is surrounded by a turn through so cars come in and drive around three sides of the block so its not the quietest of locations. The place is looking tired the bed linen and pillows worn out and as for the towels fraying with holes in ! well considering the price being asked for a double room £120 someone is trying to have a serious laugh........we didnt book dinner and judging by the breakfast that was a smart decision ..........
Still we did cheer ourselves up by laughing at the dinner menu prices ........... If this is what they call " One of the finest Country House Hotels in Shropshire" and holds 4 AA stars then we must have gone to the wrong Hotel ..........................

I do not understand how this hotel has a four star status it's not for the food, breakfast did not meet Little Chef standard
Dining room was excellent and very comfortable, disapointing menu / food !
The disabled room was fitted with a standard bath and shower (guests would have to step over and stand in bath to shower) not very disabled friendly
Very cold bathroom ! @ ground floor room with easy access overlooking car park view
Nice welcoming and attentive receptionist Thank you
