We stayed here for two nights while attending a wedding in Shrewsbury. The old part of the house and the gardens are delightful and the setting is very pleasant. The public rooms in the old building are great; there's a particularly nice panelled room where you can take afternoon tea. The rooms are a decent size and has most of the facilities that you would expect from a hotel of this price and classification but there were a few things that were not quite good enough (for example, the toiletries were not quite as good as you'd expect and housekeeping was a bit slow to make the rooms up each day). We had a few things that didn't work - the television wasn't working and someone had to come to the room to sort it out and our connecting rooms were locked when we arrived. The member of staff sent to fix it when we asked comically had no idea how to do it and told us she had spent some time before she knocked on the door trying to unlock an adjacent broom cupboard. Two other things about the hotel worth being aware of. The hotel has a spa and it was quite disconcerting to find guests wandering all round the hotel half-dressed (just in the spa dressing gowns). And the hotel is used for evening events, weddings etc, and these can get quite noisy in the modern part of the hotel (rooms in the outbuildings, the Stable Block and the School Master's House are well away from the function rooms and would be quieter). Overall it's a lovely setting but service and facilities not quite as good as you'd expect for this class of hotel.
