Really comfy room, good service, hearty breakfast with well cooked good quality ingredients. I was just looking for a place to crash after a wedding party. The room was an "executive double", spacious with a nice four poster and a lovely view of Shropshire. Staff are very attentive and got me a taxi as I flew through for a swift shower before heading out again! Highly recommended if you want a quaint hotel with a beautiful backdrop.

We were staying two nights Friday and Saturday (3 couples) , all of us had really nice rooms in the old manor house.
We had a special rate which included a Gourmet Meal the first night (went into Shrewsbury second night), we all had the wine flight with the meal. Depsite six different perspectives and food likes we all agreed the food was excellent and the service exemplary. A few of our party had drinsk in the lounge afterwards, someone ordered a Bailey's, it tasted a bit different, it turned out it was orange bailey, they were very good at changing the drink then when finding it was still ornage replacing it with something else all at low cost.
Breakfast on saturday was cooked to order but on sunday when hotel was full the cooked meal was a buffet, this was only slight dip.
On saturday evening the manager arranged a large taxi for us, and when it was late negotiated with the owner of the company to get the ride into Shrewsbury for free. All in all a great break.

My Wife & I had a one night stay as a treat for my 60th birthday. The hotel is in two parts, the old manor house & a newer accommodation block. We stayed in the Hussey Suite in the old manor which was like stepping back in time. The room was full of history & atmosphere, it was clean, tidy & spacious with an on-suite bathroom with a jacuzzi bath. We had an evening meal which was all local produce & was really tasty & well presented by excellent waiting staff & breakfast the following morning was also very good (full English).

Two nights of real old fashioned service, from check-in, throughout the stay in the hotel and the restaurant to the departure. We sampled the tasting menu one night and had a "standard" meal the second. Both were wonderful, tasty, beautifully presented and served. The setting of the old manor enhances the experience and nothing is too much trouble.
All the management and staff were lovely and made us feel really special. We will return when the weather improves

I booked the Valentines package as a special treat for my partner and we both were utterly impressed. We both had a truly wonderful and excellent weekend. The Hotel is just sheer quality in terms of food, service and character. The room we stayed was spectacular and had everything - a four poster bed, plenty of room to relax, wonderful views of the Shropshire landscape and was packed full of history. We had the gourmet meal on the Friday and the Valentines meal on the Saturday and these were two of the best meals I have ever had. The choice was amazing and the food was cooked to perfection. The staff provided perfect service throughout our stay.

I give this hotel 10/10 and is one not to be missed!

My boyfriend organised a surprise weekend break for us with a TZoo deal and it was one of the best weekends away we've ever had in the UK (and we've tried quite a few TZoo deals!). Everything was so lovely, from the gorgeous room with the four poster bed, amazing 8 course tasting menu and great breakfast in the Tudor dining room, and really friendly staff who took the time to chat and tell us about the history of the building, and made our stay really special. We would definitely like to come back in the summer to fully appreciate the garden. Highly recommended!!!

Our first stay and we were not disappointed.
I had a prior engagement and another later that evening and we arrived late.

However nothing was too much trouble and whilst my partner dined alone the food and attention afforded her were excellent and all this on an evening when they had a dinner event for 70 going on a the same time.

Me and my partner stayed here at the weekend after attending my works do to celebrate 25 years of trading. The whole organisation of the evening was brilliant everything happened when it was supposed too, staff were constantly running around catering for our needs and not to mention how beautiful they made the function room. Everything we wanted we was able to get without any fuss and all at very reasonable prices! The hotel itself truly is beautiful, not only the scenery but the pure simplicity of the old building. It's kept its character which makes it all the more a pleasure to be there. We stayed in room 14 & was pleasantly surprised on the size of the room! We had a hall way leading off to the bedroom, bathroom & also a cute little sitting room! We did not order or eat at the restaurant due to having the food at our function... But the selection of food and the way it was presented even for a buffet was outstanding & tasted Delish. Breakfast in the morning was lovely, a help yourself type breakie accompanied by lovely staff at your hand. I would recommend this hotel to anyone & would like to say thank you for making our evening spectacular!

Four in our part had an overnight stay at the Albright Hussey Manor Hotel on Saturday. A very impressive Tudor Manor from the outside. And the inside was equally so. We had booked via Travel Zoo for gourmet evening meal. What an array of food to get the taste buds tingling. A mix of foods you wouldn't have imagined would go together, but they did. The pigeon breast and pulled pork was mouthwatering. Celeriac soup delicious. And the beef cooked to perfection. By the end of the eight courses we were all savouring the flavours and congratulations to the Chef. And we were waited on with courtesy and friendliness combined. The staff were very friendly and our rooms were as requested. Full English breakfast on Sunday with succulent sausages, scrambled eggs, black pudding, tasty bacon etc. followed by Danish pastries which you couldn't resist. What a great way to dine out. A big Thank You to all at the Hotel.

Having had a few hit and miss New Years Eve functions behind us, we were a little hesitant about going down the hotel formal function route again, but after a great stay at the hotel earlier in the year we decided to give it another go. Good decision!
What a difference and what a genuine pleasure this stay turned out to be. The room was ready on arrival and as with our previous stay was immaculate. Plenty of time to relax after the drive before enjoying a mid afternoon tipple and getting a guide through the wine list from the helpful Javier.
Evening started with champagne and canapés and introductions and was followed by a well devised, beautifully cooked and excellently presented 5 course dinner. The main course of Beef Rossini was as good as, we have had anywhere.
Food excellent, wine list extensive- job done. Not quite, what made the night that little more special, was that you were made to feel like you were friends of the hotel and the staff and owners who clearly put their hearts into making this evening a great success. Well done.

We are coming back!

Nearly forgot, breakfast was excellent, as well.

We booked this for one night as we were going to a concert nearby. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff and shown quickly to our room. Unfortunately there was a problem with the heating but when we reported it we were immediately moved to a different room which was in fact a lot bigger and nicer than the first one. The manager ordered us a taxi and recommended a restaurant to eat in nearby Shrewsbury which was lovely. Bistro Jacques which provided lovely pre theatre meal at very reasonable price. On returning to the hotel the bar was opened for us and we could have stayed there all night. The room was comfortable and clean and everything we needed. Breakfast was very nice. All in all a really lovely hotel which I have hesitation in recommending.

Booked this hotel for just one night - wish it was more! The setting is beautiful as was our room. All the staff were very helpful & friendly but also very professional. Breakfast was excellent. Everything we needed. Most definitely be going back - this time for longer than 1 night and hopefully get to sample the food in the restaurant. The menu looked amazing.

My husband & I stayed here last night. It was our 3rd stay...The previous visits had been in the month of March for our wedding anniversary but we decided to go and celebrate my birthday there this year. It was much busier there given the time of year and there was also a Christmas function on but that didn't spoil our time there. From the moment we arrived we were dealt with promptly and professionally at check in. It was lovely to be remembered from our earlier stays....thank you Malcolm and Javier and even though we were at the Manor at a very busy time of year we felt looked after.
We chose to have the A La Carte menu instead of Christmas Fayre....after all it's not Christmas until after my birthday! The dinner was sublime....fantastic service as usual. We wanted a bottle of Red to compliment our courses and as usual Javier was on hand to recommend what was the best red wine we have had....I had to take a note of it as we will definitely be buying some bottles soon. As we were leaving today after a fab breakfast the lady at reception whose name I didnt get...I'm sorry...was quick to make sure that we hadn't been disturbed by the party guests....I assured her we hadn't and it was clear that they had allocated us a room away from any ongoing festivities. Overall I can say that we weren't disappointed and didn't think we would be and that a stay at the Albright Hussey at any time of year is something special. Highly recommended and we certainly will be visiting again soon....even if it's just to talk to Javier about Real Madrid retaining the Champions League trophy! Good job I like my football!

Met up with friends for overnight stay. Rooms comfortable and clean. Plenty of hot water for the bath and shower. Staff extremely courteous and helpful. Service excellent. Fabulous dinner, everyone enjoyed their evening meal as well as the English breakfast with eggs individually fried on request. General Manager Malcolm was interested in feedback and made himself freely available had we any issues that required his intervention. We shall be going back.

You cant deny the charm and character (in the main) of the place and it's a nice setting for a hotel. The staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive but this can't really compensate for the shortcomings. OUr room was a a little on the small side (although cramped comes to mind) but was OK although the bed was touch soft for our tastes. The bathroom needed a bit of a refurb: a tap was loose, the window didn't open and the bath panel was coming away; the cabinet was chipped and tatty. A little soundproofing wouldn't go amiss either (or getting quieter guests): we could the TV in the adjacent room and what the occupants were saying; cars were also parked beneath the room qhich meant noise from them and their occupants. The restaurant was nothing more than OK, bordering on the poor. The main was cold (but the vegetables hot) but the entire main course was dull and uninspired and lacked any style. However the staff were exemplary in terms of service: very old school and most professional. Breakfast was OK even though it was from hotplates (but the scrambled egg rather insipid). All in all a disappointment and I couldn't, in all honesty, say that it meets my requirement for a 4 star hotel. A small tip: I looked through Tripadvisor and had a look at a prices via Expedia: this was £25 more than going direct to the hotel's website.

Came here for accommodation as we were at nearby Pimhill Barn for a wedding.
It's a mix of really old and quaint along with modern accommodation. The room we had was clean tidy and had a really nice powerful shower. We were blown away by the genuine friendliness of the staff and there willingness to talk to you. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was really tasty and very good quality, in a super setting. We also had great Nespresso Lattes. We loved the General Manager Malcom who was an absolute delight. Noor who looked after us at breakfast was so helpful and nice. Rebecca on reception was delightful too. They made a good stay a great stay! Hope to visit again soon.

This was our second visit to this hotel and we were a little dubious about returning, as, even though the food and service were absolutely faultless, we were concerned about the quality of rooms.
There is a very strange aroma, (maybe of disinfectant) throughout the bedroom areas.
On this visit we stayed in room 18 which, though well appointed, could do with a makeover.
Saying that, we had all we could have asked for.
That said, the rest of our experience was superb. The receptionist was a lovely young lady and the dining room/ bar staff wonderful. Food and wine superb.
We will certainly return.

We had booked three nights at the Albright Hussey, travelling with friends on one of our frequent jollies. On the morning we were to travel, my wife was unwell, so we suggested our friends went ahead and we would follow on under our own steam, either that day or the following. Bare with me. This is relevant.
We were actually able to set off with a four hour drive ahead around midday although my wife was still not too well, On arrival, our friends having acquainted the management of the circumstances, we were met by Paul, who could not have been more solicitous assuring us that, in the circumstances, he would not have charged us for the room if we hadn't made it that day and arranged for my wife, at her request, to have a light meal in our room that evening, while I dined with our friends. The way we were treated was exemplary and, fortunately, my wife had fully recovered by the following morning so we were able to enjoy the rest of our break,
After having been treated so well, it pains me to give anything but praise in regard to our stay and indeed there was nothing terribly amiss. It was just that, in some areas, the hotel was a little lack lustre. The rooms were adequate. Our friends had a suite in the original part of the hotel which was reasonably spacious but, they told us, not particularly convenient. The four poster jaccuzi, (yes, really) was not really appreciated. We occupied a cheaper, smaller room which was better laid out but didn't have much natural light, Nevertheless, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom a decent size with a good shower.
Food was not an issue. A good choice of well prepared dishes served by attentive and friendly staff. Breakfast was above average on two mornings but fell short on one morning when it was presented on a DIY basis from hotplates, never a good option. The wine list was well thought out and the prices reasonable.
It's fair to say that we enjoyed our stay at the Albright Hussey as a one off but I don't think any of us will be rushing to return there.

Room was just about acceptable in terms of size, with about enough room for two chairs and a small side table, along woth double bed, dressing table and side cabinets. The bathroom was again only just big enough to incorporate bath, toliet and basin, which was disappointing for a four star hotel charging more than £100 for b & b. The appearance of the bedroom can best be described as "bland" with what appeared to be stock prints in heavy gilt frames displayed throughout.

The bed itself was comfortable and add ons such a trouser press, tea and coffee making facilities were present but we were glad we were only staying for one night, for which it was satisfactory.

Just returned from the most fantastic weekend, Paul Owner/Manager was extremely attentive. Staff excellent. Room out of this world. Stayed in The Royalist Suite, breathtaking. Food fantastic and Breakfast perfect. One of the best places I've stayed. Will definitely return! 😀

Clearly some trouble has been taken to improve this hotel and it does have some lovely architectural features. That said, what a disappointment. It is fusty, musty and smelt like an old folks home, or hospital. We wondered if it was a polish they were using but it was very overpowering and not pleasant. Many windows frosted and shut - and when we did see one open we could see why as it overlooked a very derelict area. From the front though it is charming. The bed was comfortable and whilst the room décor was not to my taste it was obvious that time and care had been taken it putting it together. Service was no more than adequate though this was not due to the staff, rather the lack of them.
Food was good though fixed menu so repeat visits not really an option for us.
Wi Fi available though poor and has to be asked for rather than access being given freely.
this falls into the class of a typical English hotel which needs to be dragged into the 21st century.

We attended a family wedding here on Saturday 4th October 2014 and i would recommend this venue 100% for any couple looking for a place to hold their wedding. The beautiful 18th century hall was perfection in its self, The outside wedding setting was amazing with the flowing stream and black swans. The staff were probably the most helpful and friendly people I have come across nothing was to much trouble. The wedding supper and evening BBQ were outstanding.

Any place that welcomes guests is only as good as the people who run it and work there. EVERYBODY at the Hussey were more than this. We didn't want to leave, and that includes the dog. We could not fault anything, and to top it all, the food was exceptional. We hope to return next year.

We had a lovely overnight stay. Staff were very welcoming especially Malcolm. We stayed in one of the suites in the old part of the hotel and it worth paying the extra money. We had a fantastic meal in the restaurant and again staff were excellent. Would recommend this hotel and will be returning.
