  • "The property is not as described."

    Lounge is not painted in neutral hues, walls and ceilings are painted almost black, very dark and depressing and the cream furniture is totally covered in very dark throws. The bathroom has no overhead shower as described. The property does not have a shared garden, it has a public passageway with bins. There is a lack of crockery, some of which was dirty. Lack of heating in the kitchen made it too uncomfortable to sit in on a cold day. The owner and Sykes do not consider these problems are worth addressing. On the upside, the bedroom and bed are comfortable although loud music from the pub across the road was a problem.

  • "If you are able to manage the steep steps (which we were) then this place is a wonderful choice."

    Ideally situated, within easy walking distance from the city centre. The decor and level of comfort are off the scale. Lots of accessories included to help you enjoy your stay even more, dvds ,Wi-Fi, cutlery, corkscrew etc. Go on, treat yourself. We did, and loved it.

  • "Excellent location."

    Short walk into town and easy to explore local amenities. We had a lovely evening cruise on the river. Frankwell itself had some great artisan shops with local produce.

  • "Although wifi was advertised as available, it didn't seem to be."

    Not a major issue for us, as we wanted a little break, but could be a problem if somebody relied on its availability. Although clearly advertised as being on 3 floors, it was very hard on our knees! - we are both in our 70s, so a bit creaky. On the plus side - great location, plenty of helpful information left about restaurants, local attractions, etc, and a very helpful and informative owner. Great value for money, we thought.

  • "The heating didn't work properly, there was very limited hot water and without a washing machine, especially during Covid restrictions and the lack of laundry options in the town, it made life hard work for me as I had to boil kettles of water to create a bath that was hot enough."

    Michael responded to my messages, but since he is about to renovate the bathroom and hot water system, there was a limited amount that he could do to resolve the issues. The road outside is noisy, so earplugs are helpful.

  • "Good location and accommodation full of character."

    Shrewsbury has plenty to offer and only a short drive to some lovely countryside. That said more attention needed to cleaning. Toilet bins not emptied.
