There are many things to like about Much Wenlock. It was founded in 680 AD, it was the birthplace of the Olympic Games (organised by Dr William P. Brookes), and it is home to the Gaskell Arms.
Me and my family stayed there on the 29/07/2014, and it was wonderful.
Here's a quick summary of our stay:

Good Points:
- Excellent location
- Lovely room with extremely comfy beds
- Free Wi-Fi
- Additional sound-proofing for the windows (kept out most of the noise)
- Bath water piping hot
- Excellent restaurant area

Bad Points:
- TV in room wouldn't receive any channels, despite being connected via a satellite cable.
- Whilst having breakfast, we noticed our toast was mouldy. We mentioned this to the chef who immediately apologised and swapped it for some fresh toast.

Despite the two downsides, our stay in the Gaskell Arms was wonderful.

This is the third time I've stayed at the Gaskell Arms, during the Festival at the Edge storytelling festival in Wenlock. As ever, it's a very welcoming place. All the staff were friendly, and interested in the festival - which always helps!

The bedroom I was in this time was overlooking the main road, but had additional double-glazing, so wasn't too noisy (the main roads through Wenlock are much busier than you'd expect from the sort of place it is). The bed was comfortable (so comfortable, I almost overslept on the Saturday morning!), and the bathroom was excellent. I didn't eat dinner at the hotel, but the breakfasts were excellent, and set me up for the day - great sausages and bacon, and a wide range of cereals, along with fresh coffee and unlimited toast.

If you're going to FatE, the Gaskell is the closest accommodation in Wenlock to the festival site, with a ten minute walk up or down.

The Gaskell isn't cheap (although it's not unreasonable, given the quality of the experience), but is definitely worth it if you're going to anything in and around Wenlock, and don't fancy camping in thunderstorms (as happened over the weekend!). I'll definitely be back!

Oh, and the free WiFi was excellent, too!

Room Tip: Room 15 looks out onto the main road, but isn't noisy. The suite outside (which has its own door) is very convenient if you're planning on being out late, but costs more.

Stayed here for two nights with a group who of us who were walking in the nearby countryside. Much Wenlock is a pretty little town and the Gaskell Arms a friendly small hotel with bar, restaurant and nice outdoor beer garden

Staff were friendly and efficient. Didnt eat in the restaurant for dinner but the breakfast both days was very tasty and set us up well for the day.

Whilst the room we had was maybe a bit more chintzy that we would normally get it was spotlessly clean and well maintained for a very old building. It was warm at night but we slept well....must have been all the walking!!! Really comfy bed and pillows we'd stay again.

Room Tip: rooms at the front have some road noise

This is our third stay. Each June we visit Bridgenorth, a few minutes drive away, and find the large car park ideal for sorting horticultural things for our annual show.
We have now decided to stay in one of the three mews,more expensive,but worth the extra IMO.for the last two trips.
Accomodation costs have remained at the same price since 2011.
Food prices for meals however has risen considerably.so I suppose has every other hotel.
Staff seem to be on a steep learning curve compared to our last visit.
Some of the original members are still at the GA and whilst the service on the Friday was slow in the bar food area- on Saturday it was first class.
The large, well looked after, garden was lovely to sit in and sup ones drink pre evening meal ,very restful.

The menu,a little basic ,was fine for a short weekend stay.
Breakfast about average for choice and amount.
Would stay again and again.

Room Tip: mews no 1 two floors one single one double

10 of us stayed for 2 nights on a walking weekend. The staff were fantastic: offered extra cooked breakfast items; nothing was too much trouble. The cooked breakfasts were brilliant - all locally sourced produce. And plenty of it. The 5 rooms we used were 'variable'. A couple of dodgy showers, a non-working telly, and a broken kettle. But minor irritants. And there's an excellent beer garden which we sat out in 'till 11pm. At one point a member of staff came out and sorted out some lighting for us.
Very good hotel in a lovely town. And super walking in all directions.
