Location

Value
We offer a large bar area, comfortable lounge area as well as a recently refurbished accommodation and we are only a stone’s throw from historic landmarks such as Ludlow or The Market in the town square. Our bar offers a wide range of wines, beers, spirits, and real ales too. We try to keep our accommodation to a high standard which available throughout the year however we understand that our name "The Bull Hotel" automatically gives you expectations of... well a hotel but we are not a hotel, we are a 16th Century Coaching Inn that has rooms located above the bar but the building has been known as The Bull Hotel since 1508. We serve a hot cooked breakfast for our hotel guests using as many locally sourced ingredients as we can. There are events and fayres all throughout the year in historic Ludlow with The Bull hosting, contributing, or taking part in them. Therefore, The Bull offers you the perfect place for you to stay right in the centre of it all while you are visiting. Our recently refurbished rooms are all en-suite and come with a colour television, hairdryers, towels, and complimentary toiletries as well as tea and coffee making facilities. Onsite parking is no longer available as the courtyard closed for car parking and has become a Courtyard Beer garden. The closest available parking is located at Galdeford Car Park with rates as low as £2.40 for all day parking. Please note that The Bull, under normal circumstances, has live music on Saturday nights and over the full weekend during Ludlow festivals until late and therefore noise will be experienced in the rooms. The family room may not be suitable for young children when live music is playing. The Bull Hotel is a 12th Century Coaching Inn with our four En-suite letting rooms located above the bar therefore bar noise can be experienced in most rooms when the premises is busy. However due to the current pandemic all live music has been cancelled until further notice.

A proper town-centre pub with quality accommodation. Bed and breakfast only. Breakfast excellent and Rob is a super host. If you want a quiet life, perhaps not for you, this place is lively and a locals’ favourite. Ludlow is a town well worth visiting.

From the moment we arrived at The Bull we loved it. The first win was how reasonable the price was considering they are spacious en suite rooms right in the middle of town, and included a lovely breakfast. We were firstly shown to our room by the owner who could not have been more helpful during our stay. The room was cosy, really tasteful and spotlessly clean, still retaining the character you’d expect from such an old building. The pub downstairs is operating as a beer garden only at the moment, and we were invited for a drink once we’d settled in. The owner and his partner were lovely and gave us plenty of recommendations of things to do and places to eat knowing we hadn’t been to Ludlow before. Last but not least - the breakfast was absolutely amazing. Freshly cooked to order and full of delicious local ingredients, plus really good coffee and juices. My vegan partner was fully catered for with a full breakfast and oat milk bought specially for him which was such a nice touch. I have already recommended this place to family and friends so would encourage any reader to come here as well!
