An extremely comfortable bed, very clean and tidy rooms, elegant furniture, superb freshly-prepared breakfast, very friendly and hospitable hosts. What more could you possibly want? And very good value too.

It was a pleasure meeting such a lovely couple. One one of their two nights' stay they also opted for an evening meal and we enjoyed chatting with them both over the breakfasts and the dinner.

We stayed one night and toured Shrewsbury. The Old Station B&B is a unique experience and amazingly affordable. The room was beautiful, large and comfortable. the furniture was gorgeous. The breakfast was delicious - made to order. We cannot say enough about the owners, Lord Col and Lady Margaret. They were gracious, friendly and quite witty. If you do get a chance to book a room there, one night is not enough. Highly recommend this gem.

Margaret and John enjoyed one night's stay with us on their marathon holiday from the USA visiting England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
We thoroughly enjoyed their company and conversation over an evening meal and were fascinated by John's knowledge of English history which put us to shame!

We stayed here at the end of August and were sorry it was for one night only. We enjoyed being out of the town (though it is only about ten minutes from Shrewsbury) and in such a unique bed and breakfast with so much history. The room was lovely and spacious, bathroom beautifully renovated, the beds large and very comfortable. The extra personal touches make such a difference too. We thought we'd probably be woken by trains but didn't really notice them.
We really enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome by our hosts.We would definitely return on future trips to the UK!

Directions on AA route finder perfect - very easy to find. Building is lovely and owners very friendly, made me feel totally welcome. The rooms were large and charming with antique carved bed frames. There is lots of history in the house and the owners have some great decoration - it seems the man of the house was involved with the building of the Channel tunnel.
Although I was saying alone, I had the family room which had a double bed and 2 singles, a sofa, tv and on suite. Complimetary tea, coffe biscuits and sherry!
You dont really notice the trains going by either. Bed very confmy - great nights sleep.
Really reccommend.
