Score from 348 reviews Very good
A lovely piece of history in the centre of Shrewsbury. Little nooks and crannies but with comfortable rooms and all mod cons. A journey to explore an interesting-looking corridor brought us out into the restaurant on the other side of the hotel. The food was lovely! There is no car parking at the hotel, but the valet parking service was excellent.
The rooms were not large and, if we had had suitcases rather than bags with us, we would have struggled to store them easily.
We liked our brand new bathroom and a lovely breakfast.
We did not like a small lift.
We were allowed to change our room, the breakfast was excellent and the car was collected and delivered on request. The staff were very polite and competent.
Friendly staff Centrally located Excellent breakfasts Overall good value
Some street noise in my first floor room
Great hotel, fab location. The hotel is old & quirky with the occasional uneven floor. The rooms are clean, newly refurbished with smart en-suites. Highly recommend this hotel.
Friendly happy helpful staff Loved every minute of our stay
Would love to have had a tour of the old hotel and heard some stories of the past.
The room was very clean, bed so comfortable we slept well even on the first night. The staff were very accommodating and friendly, with excellent service. Breakfast was excellent too with so much choice it was difficult to decide on what to have and the waitress doubled up as a tourist guide recommending places to visit. Ideal location in the middle of town but not at all noisy.
Can't think of anything which we didn't like.
Finding way through building
Food is excellent Staff very helpful Location great Very good value for money
Excellent location in the heart of Shrewsbury. Friendly reception staff.
The location of the hotel cannot be faulted. The majority of staff are absolutely charming. Breakfast is good, if a little limited. Bathrooms are splendid.
Bedroom was small and stuffy - had to leave the window, on a flat roof, open to let some air in. We were kept awake until 5:20am by a conversation coming from another room via the extractor duct in th bathroom. Very small, incredibly hard, double bed. Public areas and bedrooms need decorated.
I liked the service, reception staff, the food at the breakfast.
Position of hotel in Shrewsbury, excellent.
Price of drinks in hotel inconsistent. Bedroom & en-suite bathroom rather small.
Very good food in the Royalist restaurant for both dinner and breakfast. All freshly cooked. Most Helpful staff and delightful location right in the heart of Shresbury
The building itself is historically fascinating. The staff were extremely helpful. The breakfast was excellent. The location could not be bettered.
Reception and breakfast staff were very good.
In general the hotel had a 'tired' feel. The Royal restaurant is very dark and oppressive.
very helpful and friendly staff
The staff were friendly
Room was dirty. Mould in the bathroom. View was of a roof. Bed was uncomfortable. Shocking price for the room for what you receive
Very, very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent service with parking of the car. Very clean. Excellent service with breakfast Great location for Town & Quarry
Lift a little small for visitor`s and luggage to fit in.
Staff were excellent, valet parking interesting...not used to my car being taken away when I dont know where it is going! A little explanation would be good before the keys are taken, but useful service. Very pleasant rooms and mine overlooked the churchyard and public loos (designer ones tho!) Unusually styled breakfast/dining room. Great breakfast. Would have liked to have met one of the ghosts though! Quirky route to get to the Hotel and ease of reaching anything else on foot, great!
Missing the access road first time around as you wouldnt guess you could get a car up there! Not really a complaint but if you miss it, you have to go round the town road system again.
A very good central location. A very good breakfast, well served.
My room was a bit tired and tatty. Broken toilet seat. Dirty windows. Chipped paintwork grubby wallpaper and ceiling paper coming adrift. Needed a bit of TLC. Very load noise from the bar below. By modern standards bed was small.
the peace and oldness of the hotel and the wonderful position to the town. staff were all lovely
quite noisy outside our window first thing in the morning. not really a dislike just an observation and I appreciate, a necessity. so really, no dislikes.
Great spot, lovely staff, free parking and a very good breakfast.
The room 112 - a little shabby and a bit stale-smelling on entry. Could do with an update.Though I would stay again I would request an updated room
Friendly staff Location in town center
Noisy pigeons at night (torn netting need to be replaced)
Room was ok bathroom was excellent
The ambience of the hotel was like a museum, very little in the way of atmosphere and everybody seemed very deadpan, staff as well as guests, only seemed to have any life at breakfast time.
