Lovely location, with fabulous roof-scales and distant views from our level 3 room. Speedy and intelligent help at reception and breakfast.
I hate lifts, but we needed to use this clunky and claustrophobic example. The bathroom was well appointed as far as equipment goes, but Sir found it very awkward in use. Don't see how else the bits could be arranged, though. Wakeful night through worry, not the bed!
I stayed on two separate occasions and on each of them was in need of a wake up call in order for me to catch train - on neither occasion did the wake up call happen and twice I heard someone else commenting upon the omission
Great location, lots of interesting places to explore within an easy walk.
character of the building
Next door to and above a very noisy pub that stays open until the early hours. Tiny pokey bedrooms, even though we had 'up-graded'. Poor décor in the bedrooms. Some staff were helpful and friendly, some were horrible and extremely unhelpful
Good central location. Good breakfast options.
A little faded in decor. Kettle cord was grubby.
Small room Very dated decor Grubby bathroom Noisy outside our room window Needs a massive refurb!
The breakfast was awesome. One doesn't usually get a breakfast served with the table completely to a T. The background music was lovely as well. We loved being able to walk from the train station around the old town and back to our hotel. very lovely.
Bursting with caracter, quirky building, great staff, proper breakfast.
That we only stayed one night.
Our suite was small but nicely decorated, in a great, central location. Excellent full English breakast buffet! The quirkiness makes it very charming
There's nothing we didn't like!
Excellent position in shrewsbury. We had excellent room called charlotte suite ...good value for money. Intresting old building
Tricky to find. Worth ringing in advance about car parking.
The friendly and helpful staff. Good service. High standard of catering. Central location.
The décor could do with some updating. In trying to retain the hotel's historic connections the restaurant in particular was rather dark and gloomy.
Fantastic staff. Very flexible and helpful. Gave us an early breakfast and stored our bikes safely. No qualms.
The place looks a little tired and dated but it was clean
Historic building, position in town centre. Original sash windows White duvets Nice shower valet parking
No free wifi No bottled water No tissues in room
Hotel in prime position.Very friendly and helpful staff.I did,nt like the room I was first shown to,but after asking to be moved it was no problem,i was given a lovely room at the front side of hotel.The hotel is undergoing a massive refurbishment,so all the rooms will be spot on.Very comfortable 5day stat
All was good.
The location was great and the staff were brilliant. Good having our car parked.
The food in Chambers was not very good, meat dry, gravy/ sauce was disgusting!
The shower was good
Bit old and shabby
Location... did nt have to use the car at all during our two night stay. Most staff were helpful. Loved old hotel as over from australia.
Newspaper I think should be complimentary.....
Valet car parking Free upgrade from standard room to suite Breakfast Central Location Late check out very relaxed
Poor bed lighting - lights hidden by bed curtains
Good location, comfortable room, relaxing bar
Bar stopped serving food at 9pm. Had to go outside round corner for food. Wifi only available near Reception.
No heating on 1st 2 Nights - Chilly BH W/E a Shame/Noisy Bar to Rear
It was very centrally located. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and the food was excellent. Also I appreciated the glass of sherry when I arrived.
Right in the middle of all the shops and galleries, all within walking distance. Car valet service, sherry on arrival, staff incredibly welcoming, breakfast waitress service
Been woken up at 6.30 with deliveries, cobbled streets made it noisier. But loved the park view from window. Noise not the hotels fault, it was deliveries etc
I loved the location and valet parking. Breakfast was good and staff friendly. I had a nice room overlooking the church
Excellent central location.We arrived by train and taxi but arriving by car might be more problematical.Lot of period charm and sense of history. Our rooms were well presented - the feeling was that the bathrooms had been refurbished but the bedrooms awaited. Good breakfast with some excellent eggs!
Rather tatty in places with a comical lift which could just about take two people. Boiler broke down whilst we were there leaving us with no hot water in the morning - assume this is a one off? Staff on the whole friendly and helpful but there seemed to be one sour receptionist who we fortunately did not have contact with. This would be an exceptional, historic hotel with the right amount of money spent on it.
When we arrived early evening we were greeted by a very pleasant young woman at Reception - she was very friendly and helpful. We liked the excellent and picturesque location which was very convenient as we had booked a meal at a local restaurant. Lovely fluffy large bath towels but ...see later comment.
There were quite a few things that were disappointing. Though we had asked for three standard double rooms, our room was definitely below standard in size. No way was it a double bed - possibly a three quarter? No hand towels were provided in the room. It was a warm evening so we wanted to leave the window open - whilst the sound on the church clock striking was not an issue, the constant rumbling of some sort of motor throughout the night outside the window resulted in a poor night's sleep. However, the piece de resistance was definitely the breakfast service. We were a party of six people. The first pair waited almost half an hour for anybody to come to take even a tea/coffee order let alone the cooked breakfast order and this happened only after politely prompting the rather grumpy waitress to take an order after we had been ignored. As the final pair arrived, the same unfriendly senior waitress immediately turned up demanding the cooked breakfast order as they sat down even though they had not even seen the menu. Whilst many of the negatives of our visit to this hotel could be forgiven, the waitress' attitude could not, as it costs nothing to put on a cheery smile and be pleasant, welcoming and friendly - as the young receptionist definitely was the previous evening. Avoid the coffee at breakfast at all costs. Parking is a problem in the city centre so we appreciate the valet service. But though we were able to leave the car in the designated car park until mid day, we had to wait for the barrier to be raised for quite a while until someone walked from the hotel. Suggestions for improvement Proper coffee Friendly breakfast staff - appropriate staff training! Key pad for entry/exit to car park Check that all rooms have full complement of towels I would like to think that if the above issues were rectified that I would stay at the hotel again as it could then provide value for money which it doesn't at present despite location being a plus.
