My wife and I have stayed here before and have always enjoyed the hotel,so we thought we'd return for an extended stay over the New Year, and include their New Year's Eve dinner / dance package. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed. We dined in their Tudor restaurant every evening and the food was fantastic...

We stayed in The Prince Rupert Hotel for a weekend break on a very cold weekend in January. The service was excellent throughout our stay, staff very friendly and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Although it was cold outside it was lovely and warm in our large room and bathroom and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was very nice...

Stayed for a 2 night break over into New Year. Excellent food particularly on New Years Eve & the champagne was free flowing too. Rooms good considering it is a hotel that's been in existence for several hundred years! Staff were really friendly & hospitable, especially the Assistant Manager who looked after us well. Will definitely go back

Stayed here for just the one night with my partner, we got a very good room rate and were upgraded to a balcony room. The room was spotless and we had no complaints. Breakfast in the morning was very good. Took advantage of the parking option for £5 which was a bargain i thought. Would stay again.

I've stayed at the Prince Rupert on several occasions over the years. The hotel is oldy worldy with a few creaky bits, but it's the staff who make it great. Always friendly and always helpful. The rooms are all different some in the oldest parts of the hotel with beams across the ceiling. They all do the job nicely. Breakfast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The historic grade II listed Prince Rupert Hotel is situated in the very heart of medieval Shrewsbury and just a short stroll from the individual shops and many tourist attractions. Surrounded by narrow cobblestone streets and black and white timbered buildings it provides the perfect base to explore beautiful Shrewsbury. A warm and friendly welcome is always provided to all guests with a glass of sherry on arrival. With the heritage of the hotel dating back to the 12th and 15th century, character and charm abound with sloping floors, exposed Tudor beams and a restored Jacobean staircase. Privately owned for many years by Michael & Diane Matthews, the hotel offers a great choice of dining all with a focus on fresh local produce. The Royalist is ideal for a special occasion with an a la carte menu together with a superb wine list. Chambers brasserie is renowned for its traditional British menu at sensible prices and located at the front of the hotel overlooking the gardens of St. Alkmunds square, Camellias Tea Rooms offers an extensive menu selection including traditional afternoon tea served on a three tier cake stand. A charming place to relax to the sound of a grand piano. FREE valet parking is provided to the hotel's private car park. ... more   less
