"I recently stayed at The Alb in the ‘Rupert’ apartment with my partner for a short weekend break in Shrewsbury. We had a very enjoyable stay and couldn’t really find fault with anything and would definitely recommend it and will stay again in the future. From the moment that we arrived, every single member of staff who assisted us was polite, friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. After checking in at the bar, we were shown to our room by a member of staff who explained how the door security code system worked and pointed out all of the facilities in our room. We didn’t encounter any issues at all during our stay but I felt reassured that these would have been resolved quickly had anything arisen. We stayed in the ‘Rupert’ apartment, a ground floor room which had a double bed, bathroom with shower and a small kitchen space which has a sink, kettle, toaster, fridge, microwave and all the cutlery/dishes etc needed. This was all maintained to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. Soap and shower gel was supplied in the bathroom, and the kitchen was equipped with ample supplies of tea, coffee, milk and bottled water in the fridge. The room was very comfortable, the bed was comfortable and we both slept well. I note that some reviews mention high levels of noise from outside - we didn’t find this a particular issue, however earplugs were supplied in the room. WiFi connection worked at high speeds and we didn’t have any issues with the connection dropping out. We liked the fact that the TV was equipped with all major channels and the ability to access other features such as BBC iPlayer and Netflix (which I used my own subscription details for). Only a minor issue, there were no plug sockets directly beside the bed or a bedside table, which would have made it a little easier to charge/reach devices where needed. There were however four plug sockets elsewhere in the room which was more than enough for our needs. As we booked directly via The Alb’s website, we received a discounted room rate which also included breakfast. In the room, we were supplied with a form to provide details of what we wanted for breakfast the next day. There was plenty of choice, ranging from full english breakfast, American waffles to a continental breakfast selection. We opted for the full english breakfast and were not disappointed - it was served promptly, clearly cooked fresh to order and of very high quality. Upon checking out the next day, we were able to leave our bags in storage to collect later in the day before we made our journey home for no charge. We will definitely be returning in the fuure and would not hesitate to recommend The Alb."
"Amazing apartment in central location such friendly staff too. 15% discount on food and drinks in the bar and an fabulous breakfast thrown in!! Clean, modern every facility that we needed. You must stay here if you come to Shrewsbury!!"
"We had to cancel our booking due to a funeral but looking forward to booking next time as I have read great reviews about the hotel. The hotel went out of their way to accommodate our cancellation. Thank you."
