Welcome to St Nicholas Boutique Hotel and Spa’s official blog!

St Nicholas Shrewsbury

For those who don’t know, you can find us in St Nicholas on Castle Street, right next door to Shrewsbury Castle and just over the road from Shrewsbury Library.

Our beautiful building is 4 floors high, with the cafe, grill and bar on the ground floor, our Moroccan inspired day spa on the 1st floor, our venue bar on the 2nd floor and our newly finished luxury hotel rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors.


There has been a church on these grounds since medieval times, and the current building was finished by 1870. The building was apparently used as a church up until 1975. We have tried really hard to keep as many of the original features as possible. Our building is stunning outside and also inside, with its stained glass windows and circular stone staircase.


Our 5 star day spa is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. We offer a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and Moroccan style relaxation rooms. Our highly skilled therapists are able to offer a wide range of health and beauty treatments, and we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service, to ensure that you always have an amazing experience.


We provide towels and dressing gowns and disposable slippers can be bought on the day, or you are welcome to bring your own flip flops if you would rather. Due to health and safety reasons, bare feet are not permitted when walking around the spa. In our changing rooms, we provide free toiletries, hairdryers and GHDs, so you don’t need to worry about bringing them all with you when you visit us.


Light lunch (deluxe sandwich, served with salad, coleslaw and crisps) or afternoon tea (selection of sandwiches, homemade scones, fruit preserve, clotted cream, petit cream cakes and your choice of hot drink) can be added on as extras, and are served in the ground floor cafe.


On our top two floors, you will find our five luxury boutique hotel rooms. We offer two king size rooms, two double rooms and one twin / double room. All rooms are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water, flat screen TV and free toiletries. Travel cots and irons are available on request. Wake up calls, use of our spa facilities, late check out, Prosecco or roses on arrival, and morning newspapers are all available as optional extras, when booking with us directly. Please note that our spa is very busy and prebooking is essential to avoid disappointment.
