We stayed here when we had a night spare in Shropshire recently. It is primarily a pub with several rooms above the main bar and restaurant area. The pub is located in a really beautiful setting between the Severn River and the Severn valley railway.
The room was OK, although the en suite bathroom was rather shabby and looked half-decorated. Most surprisingly there was no shower - only a bath a shower hose and head and the remnants of a shower screen. Disappointed about this, we politely requested a discount but were frankly told that this wasn't possible. We felt that a small gesture from the owner might have helped mitigate our disappointment.
Also the pub is rather noisy, with an industrial-sounding extractor fan leading from the kitchens near the bedrooms, and a high power light - illuminating the pub's sign - shone into our room until just after midnight.
On the good side, the breakfast was delicious and really well-cooked and the view with breakfast great too.
In summary, the Swan Inn is overpriced and should take a bit more advantage of its lovely location. It's not a place for a relaxing stay.
