Just spent 5 nights at Hen & Chickens in Ludlow. It was excellent in every respect - quiet, very near town centre, friendly and helpful host, well kept, lovely breakfast, off road car parking. We stayed in Room 4 (Goldfinch) - nice room, comfortable bed. Would very happily stay again.

Our room 'in the attic' was clean and comfortable (though a little dated) - accessed by steep stairs, so not suitable for everyone. The breakfast was delicious and the host very pleasant and helpful. Well located, just a stroll from the town centre

Ludlow is a lovely town very people friendly. Enjoyed breakfast would have liked the offer of more coffee. I was in room 4 which was smaller than it looked on the Internet a also very strange some might think it petty but it would have been nice to have some biscuits

Hen and Chickens Guest House is ideally located, just a short (uphill) walk from the quaint small town centre of Ludlow. We had a ground floor room with large wet room. The bed was super-king size and very comfortable. Breakfast was particularly good using local ingredients. Ludlow is a really lovely destination with over 500 listed buildings, a castle, churches...

Ludlow is a beautiful place. The Hen and Chicken was also nice. What spoiled it for us was being up in the attic room 3. It was very small and not at all like the photos if the the other rooms. I would have liked a choice of room when i booked really.Breakfast was nice.

close to the centre of Ludlow with off street parking. Pleasant quiet room with a spacious bathroom. Good choice at breakfast with mostly local ingredients . Friendly hosts. Small extra touches like biscuits on the welcome tray, up to date local information and the offer of extra coffee at breakfast, would have made it even better!

Lovely comfortable guest house, welcomed by hosts Charlotte and Jimmy. Stayed in downstairs room in the adjoining cottage. Good size room with lovely roomy bathroom. Breakfast served and cooked to order. Added little amenities with shared small fridge in hallway. Close to town centre, local eateries and good base for exploring Ludlow

We have just returned from a four night stay in Ludlow. The Hen & Chickens Guest House was perfect, everything a decent guesthouse should be. Well run, clean and comfortable and friendly owners......and a good breakfast. We recommend it.

Sorry. Couldn't resist the title. But it was great place to stay. Convenient location within easy walk of the centre (albeit up a bit of a hill). Car parking too which is a godsend in Ludlow. Nice room with large en-suite (not the sort where your knees touch your chin on the loo) friendly welcome, great breakfast. Not much more...

“Would highly recommend Hawfinch or Bullfinch in the cottage at the rear, really light and lovely and you are protected by the road noise but the main B&B building and the rooms seemed cooler. Would book these again. The ground floor one Hawfinch being my favourite.”
