Only stayed one night for a local wedding and the hotel is a hodge podge of old and new which is charming. Breakfast was average with condiments missing and no paper as requested. Room pleasant enough BUT be warned, the walls in this place are made of paper and you can hear someone sneeze from 100 yards. After all the door slamming and people mumbling and general noise I would not return as peaceful this place is not!

Not much choice in this part of Shropshire so had to pay more than I wanted for an overnight golf stay. Very picturesque old manor with more modern ancillary blocks built alongside. Very peaceful, you only here farm and wild animals, service good, breakfast good and worth a visit. Single room £80 was a bit much, £60 nearer the mark.

Parts of Albright Hussey are over 500 years old, while others are modern giving quests a choice to suit their needs/wants, and the ambience is befitting an historic building. that said it reflects an atmosphere are calmness and proficiency, where high quality service is the aim, and customer satisfaction is the watchword. we have visited many times, to stay, have a meal or just a quiet coffee in the lounge and regardless of teh cash value of our visit we are treated with the same level of professionalism.

We recently spent two nights at the Albright Hussey Manor Hotel. It is a fabulous hotel with fabulous staff. Our double room was small as was the bathroom but was tastefully decorated, an extremely comfortable bed and with added extras like Molton Brown toiletries and bottled water. The hotel is beautifully decorated with the oak panelled bar and restaurant areas being stylish but very comfortable. However what sets this hotel apart is the staff. Everyone we met was friendly, attentive and professional. Dinner in the restaurant was one of the best meals we have ever eaten, again with impeccable service. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special break.
A big thanks for making organising the wedding so easy. I know it will go off perfectly.

The welcome was efficient and my room rate was adjusted automatically as I turned up on my own having booked for two. Rare honesty. £79 for a night with breakfast in an executive double room counts as very good value in my book.
All staff were friendly and helpful
Wi-Fi was free and fast.
The sleigh bed was very comfortable with a mattress thick enough for a princess and very soft sheets - probably egyptian cotton. Pillows were a bit thin though and not feather or down.
Lovely countryside setting; you wake to the sound of birdsong.
2 complimentary bottles of water in the room
A nice waffle bathrobe in the bathroom.
An excellent breakfast - a perfect poached egg - cooked to order.
Too much signage telling you what to do or not to do.
Antique furniture in a modern room ; it was pretty but useless.
TV mounted on the wall which pointed down at the floor and didn't adjust.
Bath panel coming away.
Paper thin walls ( lady in next room had a coughing fit at 7am - you could hear everything - luckily that was the worst of it ) not sure why when only 3 rooms are occupied, two of them have to be next to each other

We had an excellent New Year's Eve party at the Albright Hussey Manor. The atmoshphere was superb and the food excellent. Good disco and fireworks at midnight. The Hotel itself was good but we were staying in a part of the hotel that hadn't been refurbished and the rooms were cold and a bit '80's. The service was second to none with friendly staff.
My family and i went to Albright Hussey a few weeks ago for Sunday lunch and I have to say the service was spot on! They were so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The food was lovely and we'll definitely be going back again soon! xxx

We arrived for an overnight stay to meet up with some old friends just at the start of the very cold weather/snow. Unfortunately, our friends were snowed in and didn't make it but boy! were we made to feel 'at home' by all the friendly and helpful staff, lead by the enthusiastic and entertaining GM, Malcolm. Dinner was great and breakfast superb. Terrific experience in every way and we thoroughly recommend and hope to return.
The Hussey is one of our favourite restaurants to visit for special meals out, be it for their a la carte menu or their lunchtime / week evening menu. We've been to the Hussey several times now over the past few years and it seems to be becoming a tradition for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary there. The food is always wonderful, freshly cooked to order and most of it locally produced within Shropshire and Wales. I adore their chocolate peppermint souffle and the Hussey salad is delicious as well; in fact, so much of their food is delicious that there's not enough space to list it all - you'll just have to try it for yourself.
The staff are always warm and friendly even when it's busy and it has good level wheelchair access (some little bumps / mini ramps but nothing big enough to cause problem and they have tables which aren't up or down steps if you request one), which is a big plus for me; there's a wheelchair accessible toilet in the hotel adjoining and two wheelchair accessible parking spaces right outside the front door.
I can't wait until our next excuse to go there comes up. Hmmm, maybe I should start dropping hints to my other half now in time for valentines day!

I got married here on 31st January 2009 and it was perfect. My maid of honour and I stayed the night before, we shared a family room which had its own seperate lounge area which was locked when we arrived but the receptionist opened without any issues as soon as we asked. The only draw back to the stay the night before was the very loud music, obviously someone else had a party there and the music we could hear was from the DJ. This did mean I couldnt get to sleep as early as I liked but I didnt complain as this would be me the next evening!
The morning of the wedding we had ordered room service for breakfast and this was delivered as promised hot and on time, very nice food and very reasonable rates.
My wedding service went without a hitch and the manager was very attentive all day and any signs of issues were very quickly resolved before they escalated into something bigger.
The wedding party had booked out most of the hotel so it meant the whole place was just for us which was lovely.
The honeymoon suite was gorgeous, very dated but very quaint.
I would definatley recommend this hotel for special occasions as the beautiful location and freindly, helpful staff is certainly of a very high standard.

Albright Hussey is not wothout its drawbacks. We stayed in a suite in the old part and the decoration is slightly garish and lacking in finesse. I would imagine the newer annexe might be worse. But this is a matter of taste. Our four poster bed was also slightly hard. But the service was polite and attentive, the hotel was warm and welcoming, and also blissfully quiet, and we had a superb dinner, when we were magificently looked after by Malcolm, the General Manager. The service was what made our stay so pleasant. We will definitely stay here next time we are in Shrewsbury.

Myself and a large group of my family travelled over from Ireland to the Albright for my cousins wedding. On arrival the view coming in the drive was fab, real english country garden feel to it. Black swans and ducklings waddling over the lawn and down by the little brook. Reception was busy with our booking but organised quickly. Nearly everyone shown to their rooms. Then it was my turn as i was travelling alone i was in a single room which was away from the hotel and a bit isolated. Room was very nice and comfy but it was bad enough staying in a single room without having to be so isolated. Had to be walked to the room each night. Dinner was booked for that evening at 7.30 no complaints there. Was told the Caesar salad was a bit boring. I had steak and it was fab. Only problem with the meal was we gave in our orders three hours before the booking and they knew what time we were coming but still had to wait nearly 40 minutes for the steak. I was starving. Malcom and Christine were dealing with us most of the weekend and were absolutely perfect hosts. Very friendly staff and very obliging. Breakfast was perfect and Dot was a perfect host. My only big complaint was that on Sunday i woke late and when i came over from my room for lunch i was told i couldn't have any as the restaraunt was fully booked. Then i was told they couldn't dare ask the chef even for a sandwich. In fairness i couldve gone back to my room and ordered room service and they would've had to make me something but i didn't bother. Its not that close to other places so they should have accommodated me for food. As it was i had to leave and get a taxi to get something. Thats my only complaint. I would def go back though. Wedding room was gorgeous with double doors out to smoking area. Food was hot and gorgeous.
Back in 2003 we got married at The Hussey, it was fabulous - so much so that our Daughter got married there in 2006! It cannot be faulted - your every need is catered for. We've be back to the Restaurant and I would recommend it to everyone - you will be looked after beautifully by all the staff. A wonderful venue for any celebration!

I stayed 1 night and was very disappointed with the size of the room, very small and nothing like the website, interesting mis matched furniture and little attention to detail. The staff were friendly, breakfast average but all in all £120 for a superior double was way too expensive for what you got.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. My husband never works on his birthday and we thought we would explore this part of Shropshire. We had a lovely time at the Albright Hussey Manor.The food was excellent and the house and gardens superb. The wine is supplied by Tanners. Best of all the staff are a great team and enjoy their work.

We wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you did to make us have an amazing wedding day. Right from the start we felt supported and nothing was too much trouble.... Everyone commented on how lovely everything was and how great the food was. We couldn't have asked for more.

Without such an amazing professional group of people to oversee and take care of Stacey and John's special day it would never have been such a successful occasion. Every guest at the wedding expressed how impressed they were with the magnificent food display, excellent service and fantastic attitude of all your staff.

My wife and I were always going to enjoy our son's wedding day and indeed it was one of our most memorable days as parents. In most part this was due to the beautiful surroundings of the Albright, the weather, friends and family, and the atmosphere created by you all - our hosts. From the moment we arrived, when your General Manager safely guided the helicopter carrying Alex on to its landing pad, to being served breakfast the following day prior to leaving, we felt cocooned in your care.... It is rare these days to encounter true value, never mind having expectations at all levels exceeded, whilst making it all look so natural.

A very BIG 'thank you' to everyone on duty from Thursday 18th to Saturday 20th September 08. Friday 19th was my daughter Sam's wedding and I have to say you all played a very big part in making it a day to remember. Everyone made us feel very welcome from start to finish. The hospitality of the staff was 100% and the food was wonderful.
So on behalf of all who attended the wedding, my warmest thanks for making Sam and Tom's day a dream come true.

We want to thank you all for giving us the perfect wedding day. You were all fantastic and made us and our day feel really special. We couldn't have wished for anything more. The setting, food and staff were complimented by all our guests and we have been left with wonderful memories. Heartfelt thanks.
