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...

Stayed here valentines weekend, very claustrophobic!! First room bed was Very Very head down from a sinking floor, after few moments of disappointment we were very quickly relocated without a fuss, however compromised on space. Tea/coffee had to be made on floor as table in hallway couldn't even fit cups, bedroom area smaller than a box room, no bedside cabinet...

Thanks for your rather nasty and unfair 'review'. The room you chose was a budget room. The hallway you mention is still within the room. Unless you are of gaurgantuan proportions it should be acceptable. The building is a 500 year old Grade II Listed building originally designed as a house. We have three large rooms, with handmade four poster...

Darren, I have looked for the three 'very good' experiences you may have published before taking the trouble to publish this one. I can't find it. Why didn't you publish three very good ones? You published just the one poor one. Just trying to get some balance and understanding on your motivation. All you had to do say was, 'Could...

Cromwells is one of the best places in town to have a quick drink after work, lazy Saturday afternoon drinks, Sunday lunch or a date night. They have a lovely raised terrace with heaters that actually keep you warm and lovely blankets for late night drinks! Highly recommend!

We stayed at the Cromwell Hotel whilst visit the Shrewsbury area on a house hunting mission. We wanted to stay in the town so we could walk everywhere. This was a great location in the town and only a short walk to all areas of the town. Car parking isn't available at the hotel but an NCP car park is...

stayed in the hotel in dec, 2016 - staff really friendly and owner gave us a little bit of history of the hotel, room featured tudor wooden beams that you'd have to pay a lot more for in the likes of the rupert hotel. Breakfast top notch. thank you for a great stay!!
