The quaintness of the hotel. If you are expecting a modern hotel with modern facilities, then don't stay at the Lion, but it was very quiet and comfortable for our one night stay. Very good breakfast.
The shower. No wi-fi in the bedrooms.
The room was very spacious. The manager rang us about the problems promptly.
The decor was in need of an update the beds were very creaky and felt unsafe and this kept us awake most of the night the noise was even heard by the people in the next room. The food was very disappointing and information as to where to eat in the hotel was unclear.
The Darwin Suite, our room. Was beautiful. And the breakfast is gorgeous!
Nothing bad to comment on.
Lots of comfy sofas in the lounge areas. Very helpful staff.
Would have liked wifi in room.
Lovely to be welcomed back for another stay by friendly reception staff.
It would be nice to have bottled water in the room and a heated towel rail that worked to dry towels. The reception lacks fresh flowers and plants around.
Lovely location, fantastic breakfast really interesting historic hotel. Very little noise from the street which was great for a saturday night. Had the Dickens Suite which was great a really interesting old room. Charles Dickens actually comments on his stay in this room which is included in the history of the hotel. Easy entry after hours via the night porter. Staff were great !
The only thing was that the bed was a wee bit soft for my liking. Everything was fine.
Great location , old world charm , friendly staff , good breakfast.
Very friendly staff, clean comfy rooms, lovely historical hotel.
The breakfast wasn't the best and wasn't very hot, we've stayed here before and it's been excellent. Also Had to pay for the car park which we never did last time.
Beautiful Hotel Gorgeous rooms Great breakfast Lovely staff
Very noisy, floor boards keep you awake, above and below but not sure what can be done about that. Expensive not to get a good sleep.
Location very central & convenient for town. Breakfast at hotel was excellent, food & service. Lovely character hotel. Car park.
Shower in bedroom was very poor & difficult to adjust heat settings.
As soon as we walked into the hotel there was a warm welcome. The room was warm very comfy, it was close to all shops, parking was safe really did enjoy our stay a wonderful birthday.
The only fault i could find was that it was a little noise at nite.
Great location with parking in town centre. Good atmosphere ,restaurant and food
poor heating resulting in a change of room. No bottled water available in the room
Clean, simple rooms and bathrooms, fireplace in downstairs lounges, great parking available. Quirky hallways full of knick-knacks and pictures. Location is excellent in the centre of historic Shrewsbury.
No wifi in bedrooms, only down by reception. The mattresses were uncomfortable, and we were lugging bags up and down flights of stairs to get to rooms with no porter available. For a historic venue, there is not much information either about the building, and the surrounding sights.
The location is excellent and the car parking a bonus.The hotel is very nice with big comfy sofa,s to relax in, in the lounge, and a roaring fire in the fireplace.The staff were friendly and as we have stayed 4 times already we knew what to expect. The bedroom was as nice as all the other rooms we have stayed in and the bed was very comfy as usual. Maybe one day we will stay in the Charies Dickens Suite if we get the chance. Breakfast the next morning was great,everything you possibly wanted.All in all a great stay.
Public rooms Late bar Breakfast

The Breakfast was excellent
Reception was really slow and not very helpful at all
The staff were great especially the bar man. Decor and christmas meal was lovely.
Room was a bit hot.
Old building with loads of character and lovely open fireplace in lounge. Bedroom/ bathroom clean and bed was comfortable. Full English breakfast cooked to order was lovely. Staff were all pleasant. The lift is a must.
Room was very hot dispite having turned the radiator off. We actually had to open the window.
breakfast excellent.Bed very comfortable. Nice ambiance to the hotel
creakey floorboards. Window hard to close in room 112
Very nice and cosy large hotel lounge with lots of sofas and tables with an open fireplace and cute rooms with personal touch on decoration.
The ladies in the reception were very grumpy and seemed to resent being there. The wifi signal reached my room though not my colleagues room and only the reception area was guaranteed to have cover.
