Prince Rupert Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
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. Valet parking is provided to the hotel's private car park at a cost of £5 per night.

Location is good - right in center of town. Easy walk to most sights, which is very convenient. Meals are unremarkable. Staff is very helpful. A historic building. We were told to ask for a tour of the basement but didn't do it. Supposed to be ghosts.

"We had room 305 which was a cosy room with great views of the old town."
"Limited lifts. If you have difficulties with stairs, ask for a lower floor."
"Service rooms and location 5star.rooms away from the front of hotel are quieter"
"Phone first to discuss your requirements. Our room dark and small. Ask for room overlooking street as windows larger."
"They are all good but the front rooms can be noisy on a weekend"
US$97 - US$191 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
