"a great budget hotel"
Have stayed at this hotel in it's various incarnations, from the Purple Hotel, through Hampton by Hilton, to the current Holiday Inn Express.... it's always been good. The slightly odd location is well documented, but it is very handy for Shrewsbury, as well as near to the A5 for good road links. Staff were friendly & welcoming, and facilities as good […] as ever. Breakfast is a little basic, but as it's included in the price very welcome... wi-fi worked well, and the room was very comfortable.... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst food ever!"
Though the staff were all excellent and helpful, particularly in dealing with two visitors with visual impairment, the hotel's food was appalling. Viewing the other food served up to diners in the evening we decided to opt for the 'breaded haddock' as perhaps the least likely to go wrong. Oh dear! It arrived and was obviously some reconstituted hash […] of presumably fish encased in a 'breadcrumb' coffin overcoat. The peas attending it were like dried bullets and the chips were barely past the defrosting stage. The staff member serving seemed embarrassed to the point of squirming when we questioned him about the provenance of the fish. It appeared to be a case of 'long time, no Sea'. The breakfast was likewise dull and dreary, and the coffee, from a faceless vending machine was possibly (no I'm wrong, it was!) the worst cup of coffee I have ever tasted. The kitchen, serviced by two grey faced Zero-hour Contract Zombies, appeared to consist of mainly a row of micro-wave ovens and little else. We opted for this Holiday Inn Lite because we usually stay at a Holiday Inn when going to London. The food there is invariable well prepared and served. The location, on the outskirts of Shrewsbury, suited us because of course lecturing commitments at the nearby Hospital, though it is within a Business Park, so no recourse to other eating arrangements. We did NOT stay for the second night, although we had paid for it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were spacious, staff were friendly and helpful! Very comfortableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Over night stay"
On arrival the receptionist allocated us a room to use although we had arrive before checking in time. The room was much larger than anticipated. It was clean and comfortable. We had booked 3 rooms in total and one of the rooms was quite cold because the window did not fit properly. Not an issue at this time of year but might be mid-winter. Shower was […] large. The hotel was hard to find since it had no signs to it and was in a business development. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap, clean and welcoming"
Hotel is on an industrial estate and you need transport to get into Shrewsbury. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the large room was clean and pleasant. Everything was in good working order and the bed was very comfortable. Despite being on an estate it was quiet and we were not aware of any traffic noise even though we stayed mid-week. […] Although there is a bar and food available we chose to drive into Shrewsbury. Breakfast was adequate and for the price we thought the whole stay was excellent.

Hotel a little isolated. Room was clean and bed comfortable, good shower. Limited offerings from restaurant although breakfast was a bonus as in most hotels of this type you have to pay extra. Was disturbed into the early hours by people arriving and talking loudly in the corridor, always a potential hazard when staying in large hotelsGenuine Expedia guest review
Very comfortable bed with plenty of pillows, very clean, dog friendly but spotlessly clean, excellent shower and a good breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Functional, business hotel with great staff"
We were stopping off on our way elsewhere and this hotel was perfect for our needs. Clean, well maintained and friendly staff who were helpful and efficient. Its location is a bit soleless but other than that I can't really fault it. Breakfast was included and was fine with a decent range of hot and cold food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for a one night stay"
The hotel was clean and the rooms were suitable but the location is a but out the way, no where to do in walking distance but good for a stop over on your way to your main destination. The peacock was good for food and only a short drive away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"New hotel, Nice big rooms,"
Other than a struggle to find the entrance to the hotel as its located at the end of a quiet business park, I found the hotel to be very clean and tidy with friendly staff, the rooms are bigger than standard hotel bedrooms & although the shower room was small it was adequate. There is a bar but it has a very limited selection and no draught soft drinks. […] The breakfast which was billed as "free" (isn't it part of my room charge?) was ok, with limited hot dishes but a decent selection of pastries and cereals.

"Lovely comfortable bed, great night sleep"
Absolutely fine, was there on business, it was a great place to relax. Food was fine, all in all very good value, will certainly use it again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A warm welcome"
Not the easiest hotel to find but don't let that put you off. The staff are wonderful and seem genuinely pleased to have you there. The rooms are spotless and the on site restaurant is perfectly adequate for a budget hotel. The park and ride for Shrewsbury is a ten minute drive (£1.30 return), and a large Sainsbury is five minutes away. For the money, […] this is your best option for the Shrewsbury / Telford area.

"Ideal location for visiting family in Shrewsbury."
Met our needs brilliantly. thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express"
It was located near ring road so easy to reach but poorly signposted so hard to find in the business park at nightGenuine Expedia guest review
"Business trip - Good HIE Hotel and pleasant staff"
The staff were very pleasant and helpful both at my late evening arrival and at breakfast in the morning. The WiFi worked well although it was obviously heavy loaded with a fraction delay at night comapred to AM Service. Travel extensively and this HIE was good value for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room, Hard to Find!"
Hotel is quite hard to find being on a business park with no signage. Food on site is limited and there are no pubs within walking distance. Staff were friendly and the room was nice and big. The bathroom was well equipped and the shower was lovely, although there were a few dubious hairs in the shower tray!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
everything great, booked through hotels.com £35 for 2 people + a cooked breakfast (buffet) cant be bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very clean, courteous staff. Excellent service. Excellent value for money. Pity we had to drive into Shrewsbury for the evening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I go on a lot of short breaks and this is the first time I have used the Holiday Inn Hotel room was very good Breakfast is advertised as continental and breakfast buffet Breakfast is obsolutely rubbish. If you enjoy a good cooked Breakfast in the morning then this is not the place to be, Breakfast - I was looking forward to an good English breakfast […] - bacon and eggs etc what we got was a tasteless cheap sausage, powdered scrambled eggs ? also tasteless and a few baked beans. Was told they carried out a survey and that was what people wanted Fruit juices tasted very watered down Continental breakfast - wasn't any better If they advertise themselves as Bed and Breakfast - then that is what I expect to get - If the above is the standard then I will be thinking twice about using Holiday Inn again.

"Holiday Inn Shrewsbury"
The hotel was very clean and the staff very polite and helpful. Would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend to anyone. Pleasure to stay at such a good hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice clean hotel - surrounding neighborhood was in business park not great for any leisure activitiesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location quiet"
Spent two nights midweek to see relatives, so didn't have opportunity to sample evening menu options, but breakfast was efficient and more than adequate, with helpful but not overpowering staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for overnight weekend stop"
Easy to find hotel in quiet business park (we stayed Saturday night). Good facilities for overnight stay with large room and very comfortable king size bed. Very good breakfast included next morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Pleasant Stay"
On arrival Charlotte & her colleague were welcoming. Our room was of the expected standard of a Holiday Inn Express. Due to being on a Business Park it was extremely quiet. Breakfast was available until 1030 each morning with plenty of variety, the later time suited us as we were on holiday and at no time was the dining area busy. Charlotte and her […] colleague were always cheerful when seeing them at any point throughout the day. After staying at another Holiday Inn Express prior to our arrival at Shrewsbury I think they should go here for some training as they definately need to learn from this Hotel. Nearby we found a lovely pub The Old Bell in Shirehall only 10 minutes away, turn left from the industrial estate then left at the roundabout follow the road until you reach it on the right hand side and Pizza Hut is only ten mins away in the opposite direction, taking the next junction heading towards Shrewsbury on the A5. Staying at this hotel enabled us to visit Telford shopping Centre, Ironbridge, Bridnorth, Ludlow and obviously Shrewsbury... We stayed for three days and would certainly stay again...

I find most hotel stays disappointing in some way but every ing about this Holiday Inn was spot in. The room was clean and stylish - better than usual for the price bracket. The reception staff were extremely helpful, especially the morning after my stay when they were happy to let me use the lounge and wifi after check out and even put the coffee machine […] on for me and checked if it was ok to vacuum. Top marks Shrewsbury! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for money"
The place was neat and clean. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Although the website mentioned that the breakfast would be continental it was sumptuous and more like an English breakfast. The hotel is located in a business park some distance from the city centre. The manager was very helpfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great budget hotel withbuffet breakfeast included"
Hotel was very comfortable and staff very friendly and helpful. The complimentary buffet style "eat as much as you want breakfast" was a great bonus, choices were good and supplies plentiful including 3 hot items. Condition of hotel overall was good but some areas a bit tired and the carpets in the corridors were stained. Location of hotel is in a business […] park several miles outside of Shrewsbury, so great just as a base or overnight stop. Overall we were very pleased with hotel as it did everything we needed as a base to explore the area, at a good price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for money,"
Easy to find location,the staff were very helpful (always had time to answer any questions regarding, eating places etc),room was very clean. Breakfast was a casual affair from 6.30am onward,this we particularly liked we were not in a rush!However if we had been on a mission to eat and go the layout for a quick bite and go was good.Genuine Expedia guest review

"RAF Cosford weekend"
Well kept hotel ,. spotless room, very comfortable bed and most important of all ! working air con that was totally quiet, 33 deg on Friday 19th July and we had the room down to 15 deg and had the best sleep in weeks. My only niggle is that you have to drive into Shrewsbury so cannot have a drink. (Not the hotels fault) good range of buffet breakfast […] plus sausage, scrambled egg and beans. No bacon for whatever reason. Would I stay there again ? DEFINiTELY Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Over Price ... This used to be a Hitlon by Hampton"
The hotel is the same as it was when it was part of Hitlon no refurb spent on it. They have increased the room charges by 10% and reduced the breakfast by 10% it used to be a full breakfast including hash brown, our visit consisted of congealed scramble egg hard beans and sausages as the hot breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Could have been a bit more comfortable, bed too soft, bathroom weak shower,, floor wet as sink leaksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff were very polite and very helpful. The hotel was really good value for money and we would stay there again. Although it is onthe outskirts of Shrewsbury the taxi fare is only 4:80 and the desk booked our taxi for us.The price included breakfast whichb was good the only complaint was from my husband who would have liked bacon but that was a […] really minor thing. Breakfast was good and plentiful. I would reccomend this hotel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for the business traveller."
Decent hotel - quiet room, free Wifi and plenty of parking. Only downside is it is on a business park so literally nothing within walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
"What we expected"
Stayed one night in the hotel and was really just somewhere to sleep after visiting somewhere nearby. While there was nothing in particular to write home about, there was also nothing to complain about.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent staff!, So Cean! Thank you!"
Although the hotel was a little further out of town than we first thought, we eventually found it and your staff were so very accommodating (issuing me with plasters on arrival to help with my blister)! The room was excellently clean and comfortable (my only problem was i couldn't get comfy on the pillows, but that is just my personal prefference). […] We eat in the restaurant and the food there was excellent too! All in all we had a very nice stay, thank you. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
