I found this establishment delightfully eccentric, with brightly coloured oak beams & uneven floors. Jean is extremely friendly & helpful, & cooked me an enormous full English breakfast. I was in the cruck room which was cosy with a view of the Shropshire hills & away from the main street.. My bed was comfortable & I had no trouble sleeping....

Where to start ? First of all, our booking was muddled up, meaning that we ended up in the twin room when there was a vacant double room. The decor is very dated indeed and there are virually no amenities in the rooms - even getting the wherewithal to make a cup of tea involved a considerable rigmarole and as...

We were told we arrived too early and there was a kettle and no tea or coffee to go with it! The bed was too old, we don't mind antique or in character if it is still in good working order! Breakfast was lovely, local produce, although late and inflexible time making us late for an organised walk as we...

My room was extremely comfortable, really clean and I had a great breakfast. I was on a business visit so was in and out quickly but it would have been a great place for a lie in and to dawdle over breakfast. Great hosts who did not intrude unless you want to chat.

Despite pleasant and (sort-of) welcoming hosts (husband seemed on another planet), this place needs much attention to deserve any paying guests. I can see why those who have been coming for years have rather got used to it but it's in need severely of a refurbishment and rethink. The room was terribly cramped with awful beds - nearly on the...

Old Time is a 15th Century listed building in the centre of Bishops Castle. The landlady was helpful and welcoming, and cooked me a lovely breakfast in the morning, while I watched the chickens in her garden. She even arranged baggage transfer while I walked on to my next accommodation. They handily post their availability on their web site.

We have stayed at Old Time many times and have found each one highly enjoyable. Jane is always very friendly , the rooms are very clean and the breakfasts are amazing. If you want a laid back friendly place to stay and enjoy the delights of Bishops Castle and the surrounding area then I can't think of anywhere better than...

The Old Time B&B is a very much like it's name (in a good way). We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed it. Especially breakfasts! Lovely fry up with fresh eggs from their own hens. Very peaceful little town, good location, beautiful views (it's a shame that weather wasn't that great during our stay).

We stayed at the Old Time for 2 nights and Jane was a very warm and welcoming host. We stopped in the Cruck room which is a small double ensuite shower room which we were aware of when booking and suited us. Also probably a quieter room as at the side of the building. If you want a room with...
