Excellent breakfast, fast and quick with a good selection of food. Clean environment and well maintained. Very welcoming and friendly. I had a full English breakfast over Tues/Wed and was very pleased. Evening dinner unfortunately not choice over courses, nevertheless good food.

Room Tip: A bit of a lottery.

Cannot fault this venue, super clean and amazingly friendly staff, to top it off dinner with amazing para olympians and gold medalists to boot.

Top facilities nothing to much for staff

More like a premier inn but on a student campus.
Accomadation was in a new purpose built block. The room was spotless and comfortable. The shower room was compact but had all you would need. Parking near the accommodation is very limited, but there is plenty of parking in the general sports facility car park a few minutes walk away. The breakfast was fine with plenty of choice, but as another review indicated it is a "student type" environment and unless early you will have to queue for the cooked breakfast.
It was good value and I would stay again- who knows you could be having breakfast with an olympic champion

Beautiful setting and sports centre,stayed one night on a business trip,as this place is miles away from any eateries decided to dine there,we booked in and the receptionist was most helpful,booked evening meal,breakfast was included in booking.
Arrived at the restaurant for our meal to find people queued up,,you had to collect your tray and plate as you went in,then you were confronted by alpine of people dishing
The food on your plate like a scene from a prison,the food was barely edible.i had stir fried chicken my colleague had gammon.
The stir fry had no flavour ang the gammon was like shoe leather.the only plus was the soup,!
Breakfast was even worse the bacon,eggs and scrambled egg. We're swimming in water it was basically crap.undercooked.
Really disappointed with the food standards,expected more from a prestigious establishment.

Thank you for the feedback on your recent stay at Lilleshall. We're sorry to hear that the food was not to your satisfaction. We do state it is a self-service restaurant but are disappointed that you found the food barely edible as our menus and concepts are designed to provide balanced food, from predominantly British produce, using contemporary cooking techniques – to reduce fat and salt levels – in line with FSA standards. Wherever possible, this includes the use of local and/or regional
produce to nurture the notion of seasonality. If a guest speaks to our chefs, we are, where possible, able to cook the food to individual requirements.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Lilleshall was originally built in 1831 as the hunting lodge and family retreat of the Duke of Sutherland. It first became a National Sports Centre in 1951 and was opened by the then Princess Elizabeth II with the original plaque still in place in the entrance to the main hall. It was Lilleshall's connection with Association Football that brought the Centre to the attention of the nation. The England team trained for two weeks at Lilleshall prior to their success in the World Cup of 1966. In 1967, Sir Alfred Ramsey returned to the Centre to unveil a plaque to commemorate his team's stay and endorse the view that Lilleshall could justly claim some credit for England's famous victory. In 1984 The Football Association's School of Excellence was established welcoming young talent such as Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Sol Campbell and Joe Cole to name but a few. Today Lilleshall is an elite training centre for some of the country's leading sportsmen and women and regularly welcomes use by numerous sports bodies. With its unique and rich heritage and commitment to providing a World Class Experience, Lilleshall is a certainly a place where you can wake up and feel inspired. Lilleshall is situated among the spectacular and secluded surroundings of the Shropshire countryside within 134 hectares of English Heritage Grade II listed grounds. The main house (Lilleshall Hall) overlooks the beautiful Capability Brown inspired gardens. As well as a range of world class facilities available for use (bookable in advance), the Centre has two walking routes. The 2.5 mile Discovery Trail will provide you with the chance to discover some of Lilleshall's many gems including the Italian Water Garden, the Pet Cemetery and the World Class Sports Facilities. The 6 mile Adventure Fitness Trail enables you to discover these gems but also provides you with the chance to test your fitness, taking you through the woodland belts alongside the estate's 2 mile sweeping drive to the golden gates (an exact replica of those at Buckingham Palace), before returning (a steady climb all the way!) to explore the heart of the estate. Work is also underway on a nature trail which is due to be open in the Summer. Visitors can reserve rooms in one of three purpose built accommodation blocks, a short walk from reception, the dining room and bar. (Sorry no rooms available in the main house). Room facilities include tea & coffee making, digital HD television, hairdryers and free WIFI along with ample free parking. There is a cafe bar open from 7:30 - 23:00 where you can enjoy hot and cold food and drinks. Beyond the site, Lilleshall is well placed for many local attractions including Weston Park, Ironbridge Gorge and Museums, Hoo Farm, Telford Town Park and Wonderland, The Wrekin, RAF Museum Cosford, Telford Ski Centre and Telford International Centre. The historic market town of Newport, where you will find many independent shops, pubs and restaurants, is approximately 4 miles away. Telford, with its many tourist attractions, shopping centre, cafes, bars, restaurants and cinemas, is within a 15 minute drive. The towns of Stafford, Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury are all within a 25 minute drive. Room prices start from just £38.50. Check in is from 1.30pm Monday - Saturday and 5.30pm on Sunday. ... more   less
