Nice big four poster bed. The windows looked out over the beer garden but that was quiet after 11 which was fine for us. 11 o'clock checkout was nice. Great central location and friendly helpful staff. The sloping floor took some getting used too - it was a steep climb back to bed from the bathroom, but that's part of...

Our room was really hot, even with the radiators turned off so opening the windows wasn't an option, the trouble was that we were on a main street just above the front door, very noisy. Plus side was the central location and friendly staff.

We stayed on 14th April for two nights. We had the benefit of visiting Shrewsbury previously and had visited the Cromwell for meals and drinks. Thus we were aware of the parking fees and potential noise when we booked so neither were a surprise. However, bear this in mind if you plan to stay as previously documented. We stayed in...

We stayed last night for 1 night. 1st impressions were very good excellent welcome from the duty manager. We were told to expect some background noise from the beer garden - that was not the problem it was the booming bass & loud voices coming from the bar directly below. We ended up going down stairs & sitting having a...

Very nice hotel but having to pay an extra £20.40 for two days parking at the nearest NCP car park is a bit of an issue plus it is a bit of a trek and all uphill. The staff were most accomadating and breakfast was basic but very well prepared. Would I stay again I don't think so purely because...

The room was the smallest double room we have ever stayed in. Difficult to walk around the bed. The shower room was just as bad. The shower door would not open fully to allow access. No ventilation to the room. It was a sweat box. Heating could not be controlled. Breakfast was good but no soya milk for those allergic...

Service in the bar and checking in was friendly and efficient despite the place being packed as it was a sunny...

My boyfriend booked this place just for us to have a nice night away, room was close to a back courtyard. Local shops around and train stations is near by too. Lots of pubs and places to eat and also nice scenic places.

We stayed for three nights whilst visiting Shrewsbury and relatives. Great room ,comfortable bed ,well arranged bathroom and wonderfully sloping floors. The problem is parking but if you want a centrally placed hotel this is the downside. Parking is at NCP at the bottom of the hill,quite a climb if you are a little infirm. Breakfast was disappointing despite the...
