Situated in the very heart of medieval Shrewsbury, the historic Grade II listed Prince Rupert Hotel is firmly established as one of the town’s finest hotels.
The former home of Prince Rupert, the grandson of King James I, it combines old-world charm with modern comforts and hosts an array of historic period features. Surrounded by cobblestone streets and Tudor buildings, the Prince Rupert is perfectly located to explore all of the town’s main attractions which are just a few minutes walk away.
Privately owned since 1996 by the Matthews family the hotel has benefited from a significant investment programme and now features 70 ensuite bedrooms including 12th century Mansion House Suites (some with a 4-poster canopy bed) 15th century Tudor Suites, three fabulous restaurants, Camellias Tearooms, garden courtyard and a fully equipped leisure suite. Valet parking is provided to our own private car park.
Dining is a real experience at The Prince Rupert Hotel with a choice of three restaurants to choose from. The oak panelled Royalist Restaurant features a superb a la carte menu focusing on locally sourced fresh seasonal produce. Understandably, the Royalist has a renowned reputation for excellent cuisine and personalised service.
Alternatively, guests may dine in Chambers, our 15th Century Tudor Bistro which serves an innovative yet English style of food in an informal setting.
Morning coffee, light lunches and afternoon tea are served in the Royalist lounge.
Camellias Tea Rooms provides a wonderful setting to relax and socialise to the sound of a grand piano with glorious views of the historic 12th century St. Alkmunds Chuch and the Tudor Bear Steps.
Our courtyard area is now open.
