Family run hotel. Decoration and facilities rather tired and in need of refurbishment. Breakfast room quite large and airy and the breakfast was adequate (bacon a little salty). The location of the hotel was very convenient for exploring the city and for walking to restaurants, pubs and shops. Adequate parking for all guests.

The hotel is tucked away in a quiet corner close to both English Bridge and the River Severn. It is a traditional and comfortable building, and a very good base to explore this very attractive city. Our room was quiet and well equipped, and breakfast was excellent. Our stay was during a 4 day cycling tour, and both we and... More

Stayed for one night. Very friendly welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Hotel a bit dated but clean, stayed in a twin room at the front of the hotel which was a little noisy. Lovely breakfast. Close to all amenities and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay again but would request a room around the back.

Lovely family run hotel in a quiet part of Shrewsbury town with free parking. After reading reviews asked for a quiet twin room so we were put at the back of the hotel. Room was small but adequate for what we wanted. En-suite with walk in shower was also small but fine. Breakfast was excellent; piping hot food on piping... More

Just returned from a nights stay at Abbots Mead hotel where we found the staff to be very friendly. Our room, on the first floor at the back was fine. Car parking was not an issue as the owner just moved the cars around to accommodate everyone. Breakfast was great with good service. For us the location was brilliant as... More

The parking could be an issue, parking in front of the hotel 2 deep, if you are on the back row, you could well be blocked in and if you are on the front you may be blocking a vehicle in. The rooms are very basic, small tv, limited tea making facilities (milk tubs) The tea I brewed did not... More
