About the hotel

The historic grade II listed Prince Rupert Hotel is situated in the very heart of medieval Shrewsbury and just a short stroll from the individual shops and many tourist attractions. Surrounded by narrow cobblestone streets and black and white timbered buildings it provides the perfect base to explore beautiful Shrewsbury. A warm and friendly welcome is always provided to all guests with a glass of sherry on arrival.

With the heritage of the hotel dating back to the 12th and 15th century, character and charm abound with sloping floors, exposed Tudor beams and a restored Jacobean staircase. Privately owned for many years by Michael & Diane Matthews, the hotel offers a great choice of dining all with a focus on fresh local produce. The Royalist is ideal for a special occasion with an a la carte menu together with a superb wine list. Chambers brasserie is renowned for its traditional British menu at sensible prices and located at the front of the hotel overlooking the gardens of St. Alkmunds square, Camellias Tea Rooms offers an extensive menu selection including traditional afternoon tea served on a three tier cake stand. A charming place to relax to the sound of a grand piano. On arrival to the hotel, please hand your car keys to Reception, where one of our Hall Porters will valet park your vehicle to the 'Belmont Bank Car Park' (our own private car park). This is located approximately 200 metres from the hotel, or about 3 minutes by foot. Should you require your vehicle returning at any time, please give Reception 30 minutes notice and they will arrange this for you. Alternatively, if you would prefer, a member of staff will be able to escort you by foot and open the car park security barrier. VALET PARKING SERVICE As a resident at The Prince Rupert Hotel, you are able to make use of our private car park at a discounted charge of £5 per vehicle per night, with subsequent nights charged at the reduced rate of £2. 50 per vehicle per night.

A lovely memorable experience

We chose the Prince Rupert as a base from which to travel into Wales and to discover sites on the journey to and from Shrewsbury.

The staff could not have been more helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed travelling back in time, but with all the mod cons expected from a city centre hotel.

Excellent staff

Very interesting, quirky building, which we much prefer to 'chain' hotels.

Great location in a cobbled street - very central. We were met with a welcoming glass of sherry and were welcomed warmly and courteously. Becki was very helpful before we travelled and we were kindly given an upgrade to a suite, as it was our wedding anniversary. Staff showed us personally to our room and carried my luggage. We ate out that evening, so cannot comment on the meals in the restaurants, but breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice.
