Small, friendly hotel in the heart of Shrewsbury
Fantastic location in the heart of Shrewsbury, giving easy walking access to local attractions, restaurants and bars. Comfy bed, powerful rain-shower. Fabulous, cooked to order breakfast, served by friendly staff. Unfortunately we didn't get to sample dinner there as the restaurant and bar were closed due to Covid but I have no doubt that the food would be very good as we very much enjoyed our meal at their sister restaurant, the Loopy Shrew. The building is old so a little quirky (uneven floors and low ceilings) meaning that our room was quite dark and very warm at night but it was very clean. We will certainly stay at Darwin's Kitchen when we visit Shrewsbury again.

Centrally located old building, modern furnishing
It is located in the very centre of the town, in a very old building, within walking distance to everywhere. The entrance was hidden by some parked vehicles, we could not stop there because other vehicles were following us on the one-way street, so we parked the car at the NCP carpark at the bottom of the hill. From there it was only a 5/10 min walk back. The restaurant and the bar are closed “due to the covid” so we did the check in online and were given the pin no to open the door. Our room on the top floor was cosy and tastefully decorated. The building is so old, the floor is uneven, so they put the bed on a plinth to enable horizontal sleeping. The room is nicely decorated and the new blends well with the old. The bathroom is modernly equipped and the shower is surprisingly good. Everything is clean. The breakfast was good but it needs improving. We enjoyed our very short stay here.
