Good location in the centre of town with a carpark close to the rear of the hotel, parking for 24hrs only costs £5. A cheap hotel at £45 for the night. Be aware this is a pub/hotel and the pub was quite noisy until closing time. Good sized room despite being a little tired and scruffy. The stairs up to...

Having read previous reviews we arrived at The Vaults with a degree of trepidation , well what a pleasant surprise, the rooms were modern, clean & comfortable. We were not disturbed by the music from the bar and the staff were very friendly & helpful. Only a few minutes walk from the town & a few minutes walk from the...

After reading some of the reviews I decided to stay, don't make the same mistake it is disgusting! We arrived and immediately noticed the lack of loo roll and toilet was dirty. I thought I would just clean it and found the brush covered in excrement. Not nice but we would not have found anywhere else. After returning from a...

The rooms for four of us were very comfy and clean. And no noice from pub was disturbing us. Cheap and fine. Close to shops and restaurants. Parking available behind the railway station just down the hill. Thanks.

Plus points. Location great for Town Centre and train station. Bed linen clean, crisp and fresh. The rest...Room small, tired and tatty, up rickety, uneven, flights of stairs. Bed mattress terribly uncomfortable, dipped in the middle and lumpy. Bars on the window are a total fire hazard, could not have been opened from the inside. We would not have got...

I stayed over for 2 nights at the vaults with family and found the room a little out dated but clean and comfortable. The only real big issue was the room we were in (room 1) was absolutely freezing cold. In fact I had to sleep in extra clothing on Saturday as i just couldn't get warm and the heating...

Very friendly staff, we were in room 8 which is lovely and big. Room very clean and tidy, table fan was provided as it was hot. Even though its above a pub there was no problem with noise at all. Very close to town. Would stay here again.

Friendly staff, excellent location to station, rooftop garden. Improvements - TLC in rooms needed, bar area needs a bit more light. Dj night(hardstyle) not for couples finishes too late at 230, need to revise the night for more success and inclusiveness . Front rooms exposed to Shrewsburys Saturday night kids Street parties at 4am! Albeit flowers still intact but it...

Friendly welcome and good verbal instructions like where to walk round the pub in the morning so you don't set the alarm off! Clean room with good bathroom facilities. Very comfy bed. One main warning point. My room (4) was overlooking the garden and sleep before 2.30am was IMPOSSIBLE due to the music playing downstairs in the pub. This is...

Room reasonable size, clean and smelled fresh. It was a very hot day and the window was open and a fan available for our use. The bathroom was small and a little quirky in shape and design but clean and the basin had lovely waterfall tap, however it was impossible to fill the kettle from it. Someone needs to rethink...
