Positive Reviews

Comfy rooms had character

According to many visitors, the rooms had plenty of character and were clean and comfortable. Guests also admired the pleasant views of the castle and moat from selected rooms.

Pretty village location with good transport links

This property's location in a pretty Shropshire village near the Welsh border was popular with many travellers as shops, amenities and bus stops were conveniently located nearby. Whittington Castle was just over the road for leisurely strolls or feeding the ducks and there were also a couple of pubs serving food in the village plus a wider choice of eateries a short drive away. Motorists welcomed the proximity of the A5 and A495 as well as the availability of free parking. Drivers liked the way they could easily reach nearby market towns like Oswestry and medieval Shrewsbury plus regional attractions, sports venues, beauty spots and transport links.

Praise for warm welcome and breakfasts

Reviewers said they received a warm welcome from friendly and obliging hosts who had plenty of local knowledge. Guests liked the easy-going atmosphere and said they were made to feel at home. The delicious and filling cooked breakfasts also went down well with visitors.

Negative Reviews

Occasional noise complaints

Due to the proximity of the main road, some light sleepers were disturbed by occasional traffic noise in certain rooms. Moreover, there were reports of creaky floorboards causing irritating noises at times.

Accessibility could have been better

Steep staircases combined with the lack of a lift posed problems for several visitors with limited mobility from time to time.

Claims some rooms were too small

Several reviewers remarked that certain rooms at this traditional rural property were fairly small, adding that it was especially noticeable when the maximum number of people were being accommodated.
