I've just returned from a 2 night stay with a group of 18 friends and very pleased to say the hostel looked after our needs very well. Yvonne, and the rest of the staff, went out of there way to make sure our celebrations ran smoothly and that our requests were addressed promptly. They knew the locality and could offer advice and suggestions.
The hostel is ideally situated for many towns and attractions in Shropshire. We attended a dance festival in Shrewsbury by car and park and ride and walked to the Tile Museum, Tar tunnel and China Museum all on the heritage trail.There are plenty of walks and attractions close by so that the car can be left safely in the car park.
Inside the hostel has been tastefully renovated (it was a china works factory) was very clean and had comfortable beds. A variety of different sized bedrooms are available and a few are en-suite.There were only 2 showers on our floor (one for disabled guests) however I only had a short wait once in 3 visits! Food is available in the cafe and the self catering kitchen is well equipped although the dining room is not very big.
Overall, a most enjoyable weekend stay.
