Property is well located close to the town centre but in a quiet enough side street to ensure a peaceful night. Parking is about a two minute walk away and is reasonable. Have to say it's a lovely hotel, well looked after and tastefully decorated, and although some rooms are on the small side it didn't bother us for a short break. Staff are all friendly and attentive and breakfasts are excellent with plenty of choice, all cooked to order. Happy with our choice for a short break.

Really enjoyed our stay here. It's a beautiful little boutique hotel. Incredibly comfortable bedding and the pillows felt very luxurious. A really lovely breakfast offering with a great selection of vegan options that I really appreciated. And just convenient to be located within easy walking distance to the shopping, cafes, and restaurants of Shrewsbury which meant not worrying about taxis and the like. A perfect city-break location.
