A charming stay at a Grade I listed property in historic Shrewsbury, with breakfast and optional dinner, plus a glass of prosecco

With former guests such as Dickens and Darwin, Shrewsbury's grade I listed Lion Hotel dates back to the 16th century and stands out in a market town filled with heritage and cultural landmarks. No two rooms are exactly the same in this atmospheric former coaching inn, praised for its warm, helpful staff and lovely rooms.

The onsite restaurant, The Hayward, offers up a true taste of Shropshire with a quintessentially British menu serving fresh, seasonal ingredients from local suppliers. Rooms are classic, bright, and spacious, and while historic, they still feature modern amenities like flatscreen TVs. Best of all, the hotel is just a short walk to Shrewsbury’s top sights, including the Market Hall, the Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, and countless restaurants and pubs.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
