“Fantastic stay. Brilliant staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We were part of a group of over 90 people (and numerous dogs) staying at the Longmynd to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. We had two rooms for my family - both an excellent size and well equipped. The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating throughout our stay - the food was excellent and the service faultless especially for such a large party.

The setting for the hotel is stunning and it is an ideal location for the walking we enjoyed each day.

Like other recent reviews, my only complaint was the internal temperature of the hotel - which required us to switch all the radiators off and open our windows (even though it was snowing outside) in order to ensure a comfortable night's sleep.

I would definately stay at the Longmynd again.

Room Tip: The hotel is very warm - try to avoid rooms near the internal chimney.

We had two days at the hotel as a base for walking the surrounding hills.Our room was spacious,clean and well appointed and had a good view.The breakfasts were good,we had a nice a la carte dinner the first night but were obliged to eat from an Italian buffet on the second.All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the service was excellent throughout.The hotel is family and dog friendly,very comfortable- but was a bit too warm during our stay.

We stayed for a long weekend at the hotel as part of a large group of nearly 90 friends for a birthday celebration. Our adequately sized room was clean with a wonderful view.Unfortunately our bed had a very creaky mattress but was comfortable. The ensuite bathroom was small with the narrowest shower I have ever seen (set across one corner of the room. The hotel is proud of its green credentials which include a biomass boiler, which , in our opinion, needed stoking less regularly as the whole hotel was way too hot even when it was snowing outside.All of the staff were attentive and helpful at all times and smartly dressed. Special praise must be given to the chef and his team who provided great food throughout our stay and managed to serve our large party with little fuss. I would stay at the Longmynd again

Having read some of the previous reviews I was a liitle concerned so I contacted the hotel for an assurance that all would be well, especially as this was a new Year break with friends. The manager I sopke to Mark McNicoll was proffesionalism personified, he invited us to visit the hotel in advance to ensure the rooms were up to standard. We have previously dined at the Hotel on several occasions so had no issue with the food or service. Mark showed us several rooms and we also asked to see others he had not selected so the choice was random and not pre-empted by the hotel. All the rooms passed the test. they were clean, roomy and had excellent sized bathrooms. The stay proved to be enjoyable with an very good dinner menu and a Jazz band and seperate disco providing a nice choice of after dinner entertainment. Breakfast for me was not an issue but I am aware that several people did moan about the delay in servicing the buffet. The hotel is an old building with history in a wonderful part of Shropshire and is well worth a visit and stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor overlooking the swimming pool

We stayed as part of a large choir group of 60+ people. They were mostly efficient whilst checking us in, but unfortunitley we were not on their list...! Always happens when part of a group, so won't be too negative about the experience. Eventualy we were placed in room 4 (1st floor facing the valley). Lovely views. They had arranged our dinner to be mid afternoon, and the food was delicious. Breakfast was nice, with choice of cooked and yoghurts and cerials.
Hotel is a little dated, but we recieved a warm (very very very hot..!) welcome from the staff.

Room Tip: Open your windows when you arrive, it is so hot in every room!!
