Shrewsbury is "a delightful jumble of winding medieval streets and timbered Tudor houses" (Lonely Planet), set in the loop of the River Severn. The Loopy Shrew, a 4-star inn that opened in 2015, is surrounded by shops and restaurants in its centre, just across the road from Shrewsbury's covered market.

The Old Market Hall, a cinema and arts venue in a renovated Elizabethan building, is five minutes' walk away, as is Quarry Park -- an area known for its flower displays and landscaped gardens on the banks of the River Severn. Independent shops in The Parade Shopping Centre, a Neo-Classical building that dates back to the Victorian era, are a 10-minute walk away. Shrewsbury Castle and Shrewsbury Abbey are both within 15 minutes' walk of the hotel, and Haughmond Abbey, a former medieval Augustinian monastery, is a 15-minute drive away.

The hotel has an on-site restaurant, which serves hearty British dishes made from Shropshire ingredients. There's also a wine and cocktail bar.

The 12 bedrooms are named after streets in Shrewsbury. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Other Comments
There is no parking at the Loopy Shrew or any other hotels, it would be good if all hotels could persuade Shrewsbury council to give favourable rates if you are staying and bring revenue to the town

Hotel room in need of some TLC. Furniture grubby, bathroom dated, but everywhere was clean. All staff, in hotel and bar/restaurant, very friendly and attentive, very good ambience all round. Food was excellent, both breakfast and dinner. We would definitely return.

Overnight stay as a short break in this central hotel. Car parking in Shrewsbury is always an issue, but free on Sundays. Fabulous evening meal and live music too. Room a little noisy, but it is a city hotel and bed was comfy. Would recommend, particularly at this bargain Travelzoo price.

Fully recommend a visit to the Loopy Shrew/ Bedroom very nice, with a full bath which we appreciated, and plenty of extras for convenience, including a fan which we used with it being fairly warm. Food was excellent, clearly a very good chef and all produce of a very high quality. Best burger and chips we've had in years, and don't even get me started on the gorgeous sticky toffee pudding and ice cream. Great breakfast to start the day then. Will definitely be returning when in the area. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Only fault is we couldn't stay a bit longer.
