Why We Love This Hotel

  • Add a Feathers afternoon tea to your stay for £24.95 with this Travelzoo deal. This is available Monday-Saturday, and saves 43% on the usual cost
  • There are almost 500 listed buildings in Ludlow, but with its "incredible Jacobean façade" (The Daily Telegraph) The Feathers Hotel is one of the most recognisable. The Grade I-listed building was built in the 17th century and gets its name from the feather motifs that adorned its exterior in tribute to the Prince of Wales 
  • The Feathers Hotel is in the centre of Ludlow, a market town that John Betjeman, a former poet laureate of the United Kingdom, once described as "probably the loveliest town in England" 
  • Head to the Ludlow Museum, the ruins of Ludlow Castle, and St Laurence's Church to learn more about the town's history — they are all approximately five minutes' walk from hotel. 
  • The hotel is situated five minutes' drive from the borders of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty 
  • For panoramic views over the castle and town make for the Whitcliffe Common Nature Reserve, a gentle 20-minute stroll from the hotel. The town is also a great base from which to explore the woodlands, hills, and valleys of The Welsh Marches

Restaurant a disaster! Gave me and my wife different menus with different options. I ordered, and paid for, Rump of Welsh Lamb but served breast of lamb. On pointing this out to the waitress she said she would speak to the chef but heard no response. Pre dinner the bar menu offered 5 types of Ludlow Gin but only 2 in stock. Room was very cold, and according to other guests had been that way for several days.

We felt a little more attention to detail would make a huge difference to the experience. The duvet was way too thick for the weather, we had no glasses in the room, and some of the service was very slow and unpredictable. The restaurant food and staff were excellent, but our experience with the tea was flaky though the food was good. But overall we enjoyed it.

The hotel was fab , staff were very attentive and friendly. The rooms were delightful with beautiful bedding and towels. My only negative was the choice on offer for vegetarians, we were there on a Sunday evening and it was a set Sunday menu there was only one veggie option. I just feel in 2022 This could have been Much better however the restaurant itself was lovely .
