History of Telford

Named after the civil engineer Thomas Telford. The town was put together in the 1960s and 1970s as a new town on previously industrial and agricultural land and smaller towns. Like other planned towns of the era, Telford was created from the merger of other, smaller settlements, most notably the towns of Wellington, Oakengates, Madeley and Dawley.

Telford Shopping Centre, a modern shopping mall, was constructed at the new town's geographical centre, along with an extensive Town Park. The M54 motorway was completed in 1983, connecting the town with the West Midlands conurbation.

Telford now includes Ironbridge Gorge, a scenic tourist destination and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town advertises itself as "The Birthplace of Industry", due to its proximity to Coalbrookdale and other places in the Ironbridge Gorge area, which are internationally recognised as being important to the Industrial Revolution, and being to a large extent constructed on the Shropshire Coalfield. The River Severn flows along its southernmost boundary.

I was impressed. Everything was good for what I paid for. Certainly come away happy and would go there again. Only complaint was finding the main reception and where to park for it. (small problem and all it took was to get out and walk!!) Easy parking for the rooms though, so that was good. Thank you.

Staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for you. Room was better than I expected. Will rebook in the future and definitely recommend university rooms in the future.

Stay was spoiled by the person in the next room sticking loud music on at 0615. They stopped playing when I banged on the wall, but damage done at that point.

Accommodation Ideal for a short visit, Have used on several occasions, clean, warm and good value, however this time let down by the breakfast, too long under the heat lamps, dried out & coffee machine not working on first day.

Excellent no frills accommodation. The Reception could benefit from better signage but once there staff friendly and helpful. Would definitely use again.

Clean comfortable en-suite room with breakfast included. Quiet location with convenience store and excellent pub - Flaming Grill, Priorslee - within easy walking distance. WiFi was included with a guest username and password but connection was very flakey and only managed to log on once. Overall, very good value.

Very helpful gentleman on reception when we arrived on 7.10.17. The room was so clean, warm and tidy - breakfast was lovely - great location for the ASPIH conference we attended .

All aspects of accommodation was superb. Only comment that I could make was that all water pipes needed bleeding. Whenever next door guest used hot or cold (not sure) the pipes would make a screaming noise this occurred with the water in my room. A small problem which didn't detract from my comfortable and pleasurable stay. Will be back again next year.

This is the second time I have stayed here and both times have been excellent for the money. Breakfast isn't included, but the town centre isn't too far, so you can get breakfast there! This looks like an annual thing for me, so could be booking next year!
