    Charming historic building, freindly staff.

    bathroom plumbing a little unreliable

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The hotel is very centrally located in the picturesque town of Shrewsbury in the midst of interesting independent shops, cafes etc. It has historic connections e.g. with Charles Dicken. The room was comfortable and staff friendly and helpful. Very good breakfast included in the room rate.

    Inevitable traffic noise given location on main street.

    Decoration was worn in various places

    Fabulous

    We liked the comfortable bed and the downstairs rooms especially the big open fireplace.The breakfasts were really lovely.

    Our room was at the front next to the busy road so was very noisy at times.

    We enjoyed the Shrewsbury area. Sightseeing, dining, shopping and getting to know the area where our son has been living for 12 months from Australia.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Centrally situated, loads of good eateries around. Bar staff are very good.

    The Lion trades on being an old hotel in the middle of town, but I felt was a little over priced. Expect rambling corridors and lots of outside noise as you would from any "character" hotels in a busy town. However, this place does have exceptionally creaky floorboards (as much from the guests above you). The critic below can't have been near our room. Parking is very tight - especially if there is a function - don't turn up late if you expect a space.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The hotel has a lot of charm and the staff are very friendly. There are two bars where good quality meals are served. There is a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere about the place.

    My room (203) and my sister's room (228) overlook the main street.The noise from the strret is very loud from about 5.30 am onwards (traffic, bin men etc) ; and on Friday night, from 11,00pm throught to 3.00 am. There was a lot of noise from the people in the streets. So I did not get a good night's sleep on that night.
