Fodor's Expert Review The Feathers

21 Bullring, Ludlow, Shropshire, SY8 1AA, England

Even if you’re not staying here, take time to admire the extravagant half-timber facade of this hotel, built in the early 17th century and described by many as one of the most beautiful inns in the world. The interior is equally impressive, dripping with ornate plaster ceilings, carved oak, paneling, beams, and creaking floors. Some guest rooms are done in modern style, but others preserve the antique look.

PROS

  • ornate plasterwork
  • unpretentious feel
  • some four-poster beds

CONS

  • most guest rooms lack the old-fashioned feel
  • most guest rooms lack traditional feel
  • can be very tourist heavy
  • it's an old building and sometimes this shows
