Everything was better than expected!
From the friendly personal welcome, to the well-appointed room, the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on, and the most fabulous breakfast (the best fresh fruit salad I've ever been given anywhere),
this was probably the best B&B I can remember staying in. It was very clean, everywhere. The decor was fresh and the bed really comfortable. I loved the snugly bath robe, while my husband appreciated
the complimentary chocolates!! And a very reasonable price. - (Shane)
We had an absolutely wonderful time! The rooms are beautiful - (Nana & Olivier)
Very, Very Good - Fantastic!! Definitely coming again. Lovely hosts!! - (Butler clan)
Everything just perfect. The best B&B we have ever stayed in. Thanks - (Margaret & Alan)
A Real Find
As regular users of guest house accommodation my husband and I have found that they are streets ahead of hotel accommodation, and Anton House just confirmed this for us.
Louise the owner met us on arrival, showed us to our room for the evening and assisted my husband with the off road parking. Our room was just delightful as described on their website.
We find that the mark of a good guest house is not just the rooms, although a comfy bed is a must, but the breakfast that will keep you going through the following day.
The breakfast that Louise put before us that morning was one of the best we have ever had, freshly cooked, good quality products and hot plates, lovely. Would I stay there again? Oh yes.
Thank you Louise and your team for a lovely stay in a lovely Guest House. It's people like you that will keep Tourism going through these dark days of the Credit Crunch. - (Geoff & Teresa)
Lovely stay, Lovely room, great Breakfasts. thank you - (Nerol & Joy)
So glad we were referred to your B&B - everything we have grown to love about staying in B&B's - (Mike & Adrienne)
Wonderful stay. Excellent hospitality and scrumptious breakfast - (Julie & Michael)
Wonderful place to stay. Rooms lovely, food excellent
Can't thank Louise enough for a lovely weekend. The breakfast was superb and the fruit salad to die for.
A warm happy place to stay with clean rooms and everything has been thought of with such attention to detail.
Nice TV in rooms. Would recommend to all. Great places to eat within walking distance and not too expensive. Just a short walk to the town centre. - (Tigras55ues)
Fantastic stay. Really friendly and wonderful value. Thank you - (Nick & Natalie)
Love your attention to detail Louise - perfect food, hospitality, room - everything the best quality.
Thank you. X - (Paul)
An absolutely excellent accommodation!
We have visited England many times and stayed in a variety of accommodations. Anton Guest House was the best accommodation for the price of anywhere we have ever stayed.
Extremely well organized and friendly host, lovely room and en-suite bath, a classically well cooked and well presented traditional English breakfast, and all at a very reasonable price. It was excellent. - (Jeffrey & Kathleen)
It felt as it we'd come to visit an old school friend - such was the warmth of the welcome. Thanks Louise! - (Dewi & Diana)
Nice to be back. It really is a nice place to stay. 10/10 - (Joyce & Steve)
Best B&B we have stayed in by far - (John & Shirley)
This is how a guest house should be run!! - (Claudia & John)
We have just returned from a weekend break in Shrewsbury - a last minute treat before the end of the school summer holidays. We
found the Anton Guest House on the net, simply by entering 'B&Bs in Shrewsbury'. The Anton came up, and seeing as we wanted to stay
the following evening, decided to book by telephone immediately.
WHAT A FIND! We were greeted by the lovely Louise, who is a really
friendly lady, and a natural in the hospitality trade.
The room was really well kitted out, with all the extras you'd expect in a
4 star establishment. In addition to the warm welcome and a guest house full of character, we were presented with a superb full English
breakfast with enough tea, coffee, juice, indeed, anything we wanted!
I cannot praise this guest house enough. To cut a long story short,
it's like visiting an old school friend and having a lovely, relaxing time.
WELL DONE, LOUISE! - (Roberts family, Anglesey, North Wales)
I stay in B&B's all over the country as part of my job and this is one of the best! Thank you Louise! - (Mark)
How nice it was to find somewhere just like home. Thank you Louise X - (Annette & Neil)
Everything 'apple pie' with a lovely Victorian atmosphere & welcome
Thank you. X - (Barbara & Tom)
A lovely hostess
As lovers of the British countryside and its topography, it has been our wont in recent years to take a few days break in January and this year we decided on Shrewsbury and its environs; a city we had by-passed so many times on our way to Snowdonia but never seen in close-up.
Having decided on our destination we spend considerable time looking at the small hotels and guest houses and consider their individual merits. On this occasion we felt that Anton House suited our requirements and accordingly booked a stay for 4 nights; Thursday to Sunday.
Our journey from home started mid-morning and we arrived early evening, after dark, and were greeted by Louise. We knew immediately we had made the right decision; her greeting was so friendly & helpful.
We have travelled not only the length and breadth of England but also Scotland and Wales and have stayed at dozens, if not hundreds, of small hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfast establishments over many years. Some have been poor, either in standards of the house or in the distinct lack of welcome from the proprietor(s), but thankfully those have been very far and few between. Many, the large majority, have been quite acceptable but were purely a business transaction and lacked the personal touch.
The remainder fall in to a very small and special minority; those that not only offer such high
house standards but also give a warm and welcoming personal touch.
Louise and Anton House fall very much in to that category
It is not necessary, in our opinion, for us to comment in detail on the facilities available; they are all exactly described by the proprietor. However, there is one exception to that; she will, obviously, not comment on her being such a lovely hostess but we will now, unequivocally, do it for her.
Thank you, Louise, for making our stay with you so special. Our experience has told us that anyone seeking accommodation in Shrewsbury can do no better than call Anton House.
