Positive Reviews

Quiet location a short walk from town centre

This property's location in a quaint and historic market town in north Shropshire was quiet and convenient, according to many reviewers. Not only was it easy walking distance from the town centre for shops, amenities and dining options; but also it was handy for motorists thanks to the ample free parking, proximity of petrol stations and easy access to the A41/A49, putting them within striking distance of Wrexham, Chester and Shrewsbury.

Clean and comfortable rooms

Many guests commented that the rooms were well-cleaned and cosy, often adding that they were more than adequately equipped for a shorter stay. There was also frequent praise for the comfortable beds.

Friendly service and enjoyable food

Friendly, accommodating and kind were just some of the words reviewers used to describe personnel at this family-owned hotel. Diners often said they enjoyed well-cooked and tasty dishes in the restaurant and praised the hearty cooked breakfasts too.

Negative Reviews

Occasional criticism of some rooms

Although most visitors' expectations of the rooms were met or exceeded, some critics took issue with certain aspects of the accommodation. They noted some of the standard rooms were pretty compact, further claiming that the decor could do with freshening up to give it a more contemporary feel. There were also reports of occasionally malfunctioning radiators and some rooms that felt a bit chilly at night in the coldest weather.

Some reports of bathroom issues

Guests felt some of the bathrooms could be modernized to address occasional issues such as noisy plumbing or weak water pressure.

Claims staff were hard to locate at times

It disappointed certain critics that personnel at this small hotel were sometimes difficult to locate during busier periods such as breakfast, prompting some to suggest it might benefit from having extra staff.
