This was a return visit for us having stayed here some 10 years ago - maybe even longer. We had the same room - a family room at the top of the hotel and I am not sure it had changed that much in the time. Having said this, the rooms although old fashioned are clean and tidy and the...

Yes the Hotel could do with a refurbishment but what it lacks in terms of being tired decor wise it makes up for with its friendly and helpful staff. I've stayed in many 'corporate' hotels that could do with their staff learning a lesson or two from the Owner / Barman who both checked us in and was on duty...

I had tried to book a hotel in Ironbridge using several online sites and for some reason several of them tried to steer me towards hotels in Telford, which is six miles away. If you're looking to visit the eponymous bridge in Ironbridge there is no place closer than the Tontine Hotel. It sits facing the bridge dead-on. You cannot...

I've been to the Tontine three times between September and October, on each occasion the person serving me appeared as if they couldn't be bothered to get off their bar stool and go to the other side of the bar to serve me. I have never had a full pint (it's always pulled too quickly) and on one occasion I...

I had the misfortune to stay at your establishment last night. As I approached the hotel I thought how charming it looked, one step inside destroyed all the hopes I had for a happy family break. It's filthy and a fire hazard on an epic scale. - For example: Rubbish mounded up at the bottom of the stairs causing a...

We were expecting the pub to be crowded but it was completely empty when we went in Thought that it was closed. Fortunately we were served with good quality real ale. Didn't seem a particularly welcoming place. Very convenient for viewers of the bridge

We went into this pub for a quick pint and found it totally empty, although the beer was fine the lack of atmosphere was noticeable, it did not feel very welcoming. Its in the perfect location in Ironbridge Gorge.

Given 2* for location and our room was clean and spacious. For an old hotel didn't expect anything more. However everything else about the stay reminded us of The Villa Bella (only fools and horses 'jolly boys outing') Need I say more!

Only stopped for a drink on a sunny Sunday lunchtime. It was very busy by the Ironbridge and The Tontine was in full flow. Waited very patiently to order and it eventually came to me. "Who's next?" "I'm next - can I have a black coffee and a pint of that?" Silence from the gentleman behind the bar (I use...

I had 2 rooms booked at this hotel, when we arrived the appearance on the front was grimm, shabby looking window dressing, dead hanging baskets, chipped paint work and a very rowdy crowd sat outside, the kerb appeal was zero, we never went inside so cannot comment about the rooms, we moved on
