Darwin's Townhouse
First trip to Shrewsbury
We had a kingsize room. Was lovely and comfortable. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was tasty. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Car parking in local carpark was close and a reasonable price. Would stay there again. Lots to see in Shrewsbury, we had gone to see a gig in Theatre Severn. Easy walk to theatre about 15 minutes away.

Very Good8.0
This was a lovely place to stay in an area which you could walk everywhere. We had a room underneath the main building which was very comfortable and roomy. The only negative was the sporadic internet not very consistent. You had a choice of hot breakfasts and a variety of cereals and fruits which were excellent.The staff were all very friendly and accommodating.
