Good Hotel Guide Review

The ‘friendly staff’ are praised at this modernised 16th-century coaching inn, in a city-centre location ‘with easy access to all parts’. Join locals in the popular local-ale-stocked bar or the split-level restaurant (‘the upper level is the quieter and nicer place to eat’). The modern dishes, using plenty of Shropshire produce, are ‘well cooked’, report Guide readers in 2017. Varying in size, uncluttered bedrooms (‘a little basic,’ one guest thought) are up the stairs and down beamed corridors. Some overlook the river. ‘Our room was light and airy, for its size, with a comfortable bed and a roomy shower in the bathroom. Shame about the UHT cartons – but they supplied us with fresh milk from the bar.’ Rooms at the front have traffic noise (earplugs are provided); light sleepers should ask for a rear room. ‘There’s a good selection at breakfast, and plenty of it.’

Guest comments

'Friendly staff. Bedroom a bit basic. Bar very popular. Food was well cooked. Breakfast had good choice of hot dishes, and service was prompt and pleasant. ' - Elspeth and John Gibbon - May, 2017
'Some of the best customer service we have experienced. They made every effort to compensate the difficulty of operating in a listed building. Good location. Good selection at breakfast. Comfortable bed in light room. Traffic noise including early-morning deliveries. Muzak in public rooms was unnecessary and not to our taste. ' - Catherine Held - January, 2016
