Stayed here for 2 nights during Hospital and social trip. Hotel located on a business park well situated for travellers. Large carpark. Staff were all cheerful friendly and helpful whenever approached . Breakfast well cooked and excellent options for cooked traditional or grab and go. When booking asked for a quiet room and was given a quiet room. A very well proportioned room, suprisingly so in fact ! We liked the useful location for a travelling stopover. And will definitely stay again. However 5 stars not given because 2 areas require direct managerial intervention and oversight. A.We had little/no heating in our room. As we only slept in room at night not really an issue except that cold room makes Showering an unpleasant after experience. I notice that this is not a recent issue and should be resolved . Heating should be fully functional in all areas of the Inn and is clearly a continuing unresolved/Undiagnosed problem that really requires a permanent solution. There was a portable heater provided and a gift of one packet of instant hot chocolate to share among 2 of us ! B. The secondary but infuriating issue was that one of the key card failed on every occasion to work. Which meant that on repeated occasions having galump back to first floor ie with baggage after check in , after breakfast p, returning at night etc etc was irritating as one of us went down stairs to get card recharged. On each occasion card charged and returned and on each occasion card worked again once only. On last morning Magdalena dealt with issue appropriately.

Went to Shrewsbury for the weekend with my partner, me to see my favourite football team and my partner to suss out the shopping. We were greeted well in reception and soon found our room but unfortunately they did not do the key right so had to go back to reception to get our key updated, not what you need after an 8 hour drive caused by a major accident on the M5 but that is just a mini moan. The room was very comfortable and warm with good quality towels. l found that the tv in the room was a bit on the small size but watchable another mini moan but otherwise the room was good as was the shower room. Shrewsbury itself was a really good visit with good facilities and plenty of shopping available. It is not a place i would have visited other than watching the mighty greens. But the town was delightful with many small lanes to wonder around and we found a Harry Potter shop which is worth a visit. The evenings in Shrewsbury were very good, enjoyable food and good company.

Perfect for us spending a day in Shrewsbury, not far from the town centre. We took our dog. Clean, comfortable and a good sized room. Plenty of space for us and a travel kennel for our collie. Bar menu in the evening of good quality with a friendly service. Excellent choice at breakfast buffet both hot and cold. Coffee from a machine a lot better than I had expected. If going that way again would definitely stay there.

We usually stay here when we visit Shrewsbury. The hotel is on the outskirts of the city so you will need a taxi if you want to head into town for a night out. We always had good service and the rooms are tidy and spacious. There is complimentary tea and coffee in the room, free WiFi and breakfast is included in the room price. The TV signal is a bit iffy at times and the breakfast is the usual you would get in any other Holiday Inn, but it will set you up for the day. I would always recommend this hotel if you want cheap and good value for money.

Stayed one night... Average room. Tried furniture. Heating not working, was given a heater for room that never worked. Food very average... Below bar standard. Would not stayed in a express if this us the quality...

Clean and modern hotel. Rooms comfortable and facilities were good. Staff very helpful, when I Suggested a fridge in the room would be useful via a feedback survey, 20 minutes later I had a fridge. Service with a smile

Booked this room last minute and what a lovely surprise. Excellent value for money. Room was very large, extremely clean, good facilities, lovely shower and very comfortable bed. Very helpful and pleasant staff

Great location and easy to find. All staff were helpful and check in was smooth and speedy. Room was spacious and clean with a good bathroom. Beware of the shower which changes from ok to scalding in seconds and back again. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. They even provide paper cups so you can take a hot drink away with you.

Two night stay for business. The hotel is in a convenient out of town location on the ring road with plenty of parking available. The problem during my stay was the temperature of the hot water which fluctuated dramatically. The shower was so bad I got scolded. Changed rooms and this time it was Luke warm. We complained to the staff but they were in different simply saying that management knew about the problem. Really Holiday Inn you could do better
