My wife and I stayed for Friday and Saturday night. The accommodation was clean and comfortable, although a little basic. As we were making our way out on the Saturday night, I tripped and broke the bottle I was carrying. The staff were brilliant - caring, calming and efficient in clearing things up and making the place safe.

Since nobody has responded to my complaint, I thought I'd share it on here. I booked a room at the Old Post Office for work related purposes. I'd booked on the proviso that it was "pay on arrival". I expected to receive the funds from my employer to use to pay on arrival. The small print states my card details...

Caroline I am sorry you feel your cancellation was not handled correctly. When booking through a third party such as Late Rooms we are unable to alter or cancel your booking . Any changes must be made through them, this was explained when you called. This is not us being awkward, we physically can not amend anything as your contract...

We paid a reasonable price for good clean basic accommodation right in the centre of Shrewsbury. Although our room wasn't en - suite it wasn't a problem as the shower room with toilet just across the corridor. Everything else was within the room. A full very nice English breakfast was included with cereals, juice and toast. There was meals available...

We got a double room with en-suite for the bargain price of £39.50. Although the room was a little dated it was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Not all the rooms are en-suite so make sure you check before booking. Breakfast was included however we failed to get up in time. Check out is a little early, 10.30am. We would...

Situated in centre of city. We stayed in room 3, en suite and well furnished. Noticeable improvements since last stay (new carpets etc). Bit noisy at night with band but to be expected staying in a pub hotel. Bar staff very polite and friendly. You don't have a choice of seating at breakfast and have to sit on table number...

As a "passing visitor" I popped into here for a beer (or 3 as it turned out) and was welcomed by the bar staff as well as the other "locals" already in attendance. Being made to feel welcomed was a great incentive to stay as long as I did. (Note: I didn't stay but can't finish my review without ticking...

Stopped here while shopping in Shrewsbury. The menu 2 for £12 great value and the faggots are to die for. Believe me you will not be disappointed and leave there full. Drinks are good to. Great staff.

If you are looking for a hotel, this isn't it.. this is a pub with rooms and for what it is it does it very well! Great location, friendly check in and the staff continued to be helpful throughout the stay. The room was up a few flights of stairs and I don't know if they could accommodate anyone with...

And I mean on every level. It's a maze of higgledy piggledy upstairs downstairs but far from being an annoyance this is very much part of its charm and appeal. Other greats: Value for money. £40 for bed and breakfast (single occupancy in my case) with all the facilities you'd need including WiFi and en-suite bathroom. Breakfast. Generous helpings of...
