... visit and wander around. We checked out the narrow boat trip we want to do and went off for a walk then came across a steam train ride so we thought why not! Everyday is a totally unexpected journey or experience. Before boarding the train, Rod calls out to me to go back to where he is and as Ido he is standing with someone chatting. Well as it turns out we ran into Rod's cousin, Robyn Paull and family touring around! how amazing it was great to see them! This train takes us ...
Headed of this morning for long drive to Wales. Stopped at Stratford-upon-Avon for a look around and lunch. Home of Shakespeare. Very picturesque. Margaret now has too many garden ideas for when we get home.. Drive further on past Birmingham and onto Llanfihangel-Glyn-Myfyr to Rita's home. Relaxing in front of fire about ready for bed.. Relax day ...
... tell me if it would be an idea worth going for. I most certainly hope so. 'Betty's Hot Sauce' me thinks. I thought of going with 'Betty's Secret Potion' but let's face it, it's no secret, and anybody sensible enough could put two and two together and name the ingredients used so that's a no. Anyway, we'll see how it goes. Good luck to me ...
... hot drinks down to see them at the top of the locks. They used to keep their boat at Banbury, but now moor at Saul Junction Marina and were on their way back there. Worcester this evening.
Andy and Sue were still not up and about so we went back and visited Lidl to buy some of their croissants for breakfast. A little later, Sue appeared, and we went on board Springwater for more hot drinks. Andy copied some of James’ photos for a church magazine.
... Christ mate at least I've got an excuse for looking like a bag of spuds, what's yours?' Mr universe then started singing a song about bicycles... I ignored him. Henry being a much nicer person than me, politely showed him our route map. Big mistake!! We spent the next few uncomfortable minutes talking gibberish.. Sorry mate must dash we've a long way to go today. Many many many miles later I was stopped on the side of the road waiting for Henry ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Prince Rupert Hotel Shrewsbury
I liked the Prince Rupert
My single room was probably in the newer section. The bed was wider than a twin, but would have been small for two people. Okay sized room, bathroom was fine. Could hear the people in the room next door quite clearly, but they were unusually loud.
My dealings with hotel staff were fine. Breakfast was included in my room rate, otherwise it would have been quite expensive, but hotel dining rooms are often pricey. The night porter was probably overwhelmed with our "invasion" of the lounge late at night (a band and entourage of noisy fans) but handled it quite well.
Location great in the center of town near shopping, the historic abbey, etc.
Keep in mind it's an older hotel in a historic city, not a newly built chain hotel in a suburb or near a motorway.
Dump dont stay here
The hotel was a dump, dated furniture, clueless staff. A nightmare to find and your car is parked by half dim witted staff, she stalled the car about six times attempting to move away from the hotel, when she did manage it she was reving the knackers off it, a brand new Jag! A guests car that was returned the next morning was damaged. Room was smelling of damp, wallpaper had mould on it. Worst hotel Ive ever stopped in, dark corridors on arrival, receptionist spoke in poor broken English. Dont be fooled by the AA rating or the pictures of the hotel they are nothing like it in reality.
Don't stay here
Small over-furnished room on several different levels. Combined with poor lighting, quite dangerous. Room was freezing cold when we arrived and stank of smoke [a cigarette was found on the floor]. The bed was small [I had specifically asked for a big bed as my husband is 6 foot and we were paying extra for this] and very high up - I couldn't reach the table lamp when in it! TV remote was missing, telephone not working properly, staff all clueless. Car late on return. I wrote to the manager twice but he was insistent that there was no real problem and insisted that we should have complained at the time. Never again.
Love the prince rupert
We have stayed at the Prince Rupert for the past ten years .we always get excellant service from the team at the hotel.
youhave a choice of three restaraunts fine dining ,chambers and a Italian
so many choices what more could you ask for to make a enjoyable in Shrewsbury town centre.
Poor - in need of refurbishment
A real disappointment, by all accounts the details and information of the hotel sounded perfect. How untrue! Our hotel room was small and and cramped old bedding and damp smell. I complained and they offered us a room but it was only a medium bed rather than a double giving us no other option to stay due to the late time when we arrived as they were fully booked.
The hotel is situated right in the centre which was great. Although it doesnt say anything about parking fees you do get parking fees put on your bill.
It is certainly not worth the money, i wouldnt definately not stay there again so please note do not go off the description and pictures of the hotel.
My Wife and I stayed at the Prince Rupert for two nights between after our wedding, before going on Honeymoon.
Public rooms good/ bedrooms average
public rooms looked good, I expected bedrooms to have been of the same standard, looked very faded and in need of a revamp to match price charged, breakfast good, location excellent.
My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in October 2004. We were upgraded to a spacious suite, which was a pleasant surprise. Quite a tortuous route to some rooms along a very long route march of corridors - although what one should expect from an historic building.
My wife and I had booked the Hotel Rupert for two days in September. The room was not one with a four-poster, but it was a clean room with a good bath and shower, plus a comfortable bed. The staff was always courteous. The breakfasts were nicely done.
If I have a suggestion, our room was on the street side opposite the Abbot's House. This street received a lot of night people having a "good time." I did bring ear plugs and would suggest the same to anyone whose room may book here.
A dis-interested receptionist suggested trouble when we arrived for a two-night stay. The room confirmed the suspiscion. It could best be described as a prison cell with windows high up on the wall, a mattress that had been slept on far too many times, a television that had to be re-tuned to work with hisses and poor picture. My complaint was met with a shrug of the shoulders.
