Situated in the heart of medieval Shrewsbury, the Prince Rupert is firmly established as the town's finest hotel.The former home of Prince Rupert, the grandson of King James I.

The Prince Rupert combines old-world charm with modern facilities and is an oasis of tranquillity in the centre of town.

Surrounded by cobblestone streets and Tudor buildings, the Prince Rupert Hotel is perfectly located to explore all the town's main attractions which are just a few minutes walk away.

The hotel has 70 tastefully furbished en-suite bedrooms including 12th century mansion house suites, four-poster canopied beds, 15th century Tudor Suites and deluxe rooms.
