Shropshire/welsh borders hotels - any suggestions?

I'm looking into doing a weekend course in Oswestry, Shropshire in October that I'd like to combine with a stay in a nice hotel. Does anyone have any suggestions. Preferably not too grandma-chintzy! I'm open on price, and I think I'd prefer a country hotel to a little B&B.

Thanks in advance

I would not stay in Oswestry. If you have to I would stay at the bestWestern in the town centre but it is a basic three star. I was in Oswestry on business earlier this year and a local welcomed me to the "epitomy of nowhere" which I found rather amusing.

However, the surrounding countryside is great and is very nice. You might consider atying in either Chester or Shrewsbury, however, since the train service is pretty irregular to Oswestry from both these places you will really need a car to get to Oswestry each day.

I would telephone the Shropshire and Cheshire tourist boards and ask for country hotesl in the vicinity.

There is a rather nice pub called the Old Three Pigeons in Nescliffe (between Oswestry and Shrewsbury) but I am not sure if it does accommodation.

We looked at a very nice country house hotel near Chester and Oswestry a year or so ago. It was lovely.

All I have in my journal is the name but when I googled it they do have a website.
