Shrewsbury delight

Sandford House Hotel is in a quiet street, a location both central and near the river.

The host could not have been more helpful when I asked questions about the town; he was courteous and friendly. Breakfast was excellent, with veggie sausages when asked for. The room was simple rather than luxurious but perfectly fine for a night's stay. The bed had proper blankets, very rare nowadays. I would go back.

Hotel tidy and friendly but as soon as I walked in hit by that smell of "air freshner" used to cover up other smells.

Room was clean and tidy, bed fantastically comfortable. Didn't understand how to put kettle . Thus is simple but there were two completely unrelated switches and no explanation about 'quirky'set no cuppa first thing which is a must for me. Location brilliant but the next night we stayed in a serviced apartment in Bristol bang smack on the waterfront for £10 more and the standards were incomparable. Think the accomodation overpriced especially for a late room. Landlady very friendly.

Great position, short walk to city centre, friendly staff and clean rooms

Very good rooms, clean and interesting.

Good bed and quiet. We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel and would stay again if ever back in Shrewsbury.

If a map of the immediate area was on the website, then finding the nearest car park would have been easier.

We paid £7.20 for the 24 hour stay at an NCP. However, this car park was locked overnight and patrolled during the day and so gave us some confidence. Apparently a nearer car park makes no charge after 6 pm.

Excellent location

The location of this hotel is perfect.

Right on the edge of the town, parking within a 30 second walk (£5 for the weekend) it is very clean and the owners are very pleasant. Because of this it was easy to ignore the lack of attention to detail-the cracked sink, broken tap, the sharp bit of broken plastic on the light pull, the fact that you couldn't watch the tv from the bed as it was on a bracket that you couldn't turn, no biscuits, etc

If attention to detail matters to you then I would say maybe pay a bit more and stay else where.

short stay in shrewsbury

Nice hotel and location.

No car park, public car park very close. Room not ready at =12.00, important as we needed to change for a wedding. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Shrewbury Town Weekend Break

Had to get away from the city so we found and stayed at the Sandford House Hotel which is ideally situated for exploring and enjoying Shrewsbury and centrally located for exploring Shropshire, Mid Wales, and the Midlands.

The hotel itself is quiet, clean, has some lovely period features and a garden, with the river Severn nearby. The whole experience was perfect and we came back refreshed and sated. One couldn't have asked for more.
