We booked the Loft Suite which was a large room with vaulted ceilings up a couple of flights of stairs. The room looked gorgeous with loads of beams and white painted walls, although some of the beams were quite low level. The bathroom was small with a good shower and there was a bath on a split level floor above the bedroom. There was a kettle, mugs, bottles of water and a jar of home-baked shortbread. The room was very comfortable, but a bit cold.
The car park is accessed via a very narrow passageway, but there was plenty of room to park. The location is excellent, close to the centre of town.

We stayed with a toddler, when we checked in, we asked for a cot to be made up, the cot was set up and we were shown the room. We realised we specifically asked for a room with a bath due to staying with the little one. We were moved to another room. The cot came with no mattress and we were advised there isn’t one available, the bottom of the cot was a wooden board at this stage. The GM managed to locate the bottom of the cot.
Dinner was very good, breakfast was a show stopper and the hotel was spotless.

Booked the lion and pheasant via travelzoo hoping to see the styper stones and medieval shrewsbury followed by a nice meal. We ticked all the boxes! The hotel was very clean and had a good atmosphere. The staff were excellent and made us feel welcome. We felt that we were treated like any other (full paying) guest - the food was excellent. The room was very comfortable though we did struggle to work out the sound proofing and had to endure some late night noise from fevellers on their way home - our fault for not working things out before going to bed! We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Very difficult car park to get into but reception and public areas very nice, welcoming and clean. Our room was incredibly small, far smaller than expected for the very high price paid. It was hot and stuffy and the traffic noise was unbelievably loud, making listening to the TV impossible with windows open. Shutters did help to block noise overnight and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was brilliant, excellent service and attention to detail. For the first time this summer we actually stayed in a hotel with a full breakfast menu all served at the table - felt like pre-Covid days for once. Dinner was nice but very expensive for a limited menu (do understand the need for a reduced menu) and the waiting staff could not be faulted. All in all, a nice hotel but, compared to similar establishments, very, very overpriced.

The hotel is situated just near the English Bridge. We managed to park in the very restricted car park and had to look to find the entrance via the decking. Checking in was OK. Room 16 was up several flights of stairs then down another set of stairs.. part of the quirkiness of this old hotel. The room itself was very small. The large iron bed would be pretty in a big room but difficult to manoeuvre round and I knocked my legs on it several times. The bedding was of good quality but unfortunately the bed was so badly made up the sheets were hanging off it. The old TV was tiny and balanced on a small table alongside the kettle and the telephone that fell to bits when picked up. It was  difficult to access the plug sockets hidden behind the TV screen. The lamps on the side tables were very flimsy and toppled over and useless for reading. The bathroom was nicely decorated with quality towels, with a large walk in shower but we had issues with the temperature dial and the water was dangerously hot.  So hot we had to call reception and a very pleasant lad forced the dial to a cooler setting but it got stuck again the next morning. The room was very hot and being on the road very noisy so earplugs were necessary to get any sleep and the doors slamming and people thumping up and down the stairs and corridors didn't help. Breakfast was very nice and well cooked when we found the dining room but after waiting a considerable time for my requested fruit and yoghurt we gave up. On checking out the girl completely ignored us and only took her eyes off her computer screen when we left the key on the desk and said thankyou. Not one word uttered from her no goodbye no how was your stay ..just about summed up this place.

Our room (10) was at the front of the hotel and overlooked the historic English Bridge. It was decorated all in white and in good decorative condition. French style bed - nice! Good size bathroom with robe and toiletries. Built in wardrobe in the lobby giving a bit more space in the room. Large bottle of water provided. Great soundproofing between the rooms, not a sound heard other than the door being closed. As the weather was so hot we had to keep the windows open all night despite a very good fan in the room, so woken early as traffic built up in the morning. Ask for a room at the back if there are any, if this would bother you. Blinds on the windows but not blackout. We had an excellent dinner and breakfast was great too. The hotel had a buzz about it and the bar and restaurant were full, there is also an outside seating area which is nice in the hot weather. Be aware that the entry to the rear car park (old post house entry) is challenging from a busy road and we scratched the near side wheel arch. Also there is limited turning space. On reflection we should have used the large NCP car-park just across the road, which the hotel had included in their info. No lift but staff took our bags upstairs so not a problem. The staff were plentiful and very helpful including posting on a pair of shoes we left behind. Thank you!

Noise noise noise
We spent 3 nights in this hotel. When we phoned to book we asked for a quite room and we’re told they would give us a side room that is quiet, when we arrived we noticed that the road and bridge were just outside our room we didn’t think much of this at the time however we hardly slept because of the road noise there is no window sound proofing at all.. so next morning we asked to be moved to a quiet room.. they gave us a room overlooking the car park which at first was quiet.. this room was smaller than the first room (that was also quite small) and we said it’s not the same rate as the first room, they said it was it they would knock £10 a night off so all was good until the extractor fan from the kitchen started up and went on all night this was very noisy and completely spoilt our sleep on the remaining two nights..
The hotel is over 2 floors but there are so many stairs all over the place it’s like a rabbit Warren so be warned if your not good with stairs
The television in the rooms are the smallest I’ve ever seen in a hotel these really need updating
The staff at breakfast were lovely also at the 1 evening meal we had but there was a young guy at the bar in the downstairs eating area that needs customer training I went up to the bar and he was making a cocktail I was the only person at the bar but there was no acknowledgement I was there he just totally ignored me all he needed was to make eye contact with me and say that he will be with me as soon as he finished the cocktail.. when he did eventually serve me there was no smile or chat just gave me drinks and that was that..
I feel for £160 down to £150 per night is rather a lot for the hotel considering room size and the noise issue
The food we had was lovely and breakfast was good but shame to say I would not return for the above issues especially the noise

We stayed for a couple of nights and we're very impressed. Our room and all of the public areas were very clean, and in excellent condition. Or room was pretty comfortable, the bed especially so, and we had a lovely view of the river, although it was a little noisy in the morning from the traffic. Breakfast was excellent, with a big choice, all freshly cooked and very tasty. We used the bar and restaurant and the food was lovely, and the young waitresses very efficient and helpful. There's a small carpark, which was full pretty early on in the afternoon. There is an NCP opposite which was very reasonable for a full days parking. We'll certainly stay again.

Got to the hotel around 4pm, after parking behind it (really tight, be careful!) and went in via the back entrance which passes two toilets both of which had their doors open and were really rather dirty and smelly but walked through to reception which was all pleasant and went to the room.

It was overlooking the high street so yes noisy but that didn’t bother us so much but it was grubby. The paintwork is marked and scuffed, stains on the carpet and surprising amounts of dust on the beams and the light bulbs were furry with it! The room was fairly comfortable but only had small side tables and one larger with the TV and kettle on so very limited space to put a anything out but was pleased to see ironing board, hair dryer and hangers which we liked.

The staff were all very friendly other than the receptionist when we left so didn’t even look at us just took the key and settled up.

Overall it isn’t bad but it’s tired, communal areas are fairly uncomfortable and over priced. Wouldn’t stay here again.

What a lovely restaurant! Light and airy, the staff were absolutely lovely, and it felt like a Michelin style meal at a reasonable price- the starters were almost too pretty to eat. Would definitely recommend. Good choice of drinks and wines, so we had a great experience

Hello! Is there any hotel fee (daily) also do they place a hold within your stay on your card? Thanks!
Answer from edgeways
Worcester, United Kingdom109 contributions73 helpful votes
I cannot remember but most hotels seem to swipe a credit card on arrival. If you are referring to a parking fee the hotel does not charge but the carpark is small with a narrow entrance. If you were to have to park in the public car park opposite you would need to pay.

It's close to the school, but I think you will need to get a cab.
