We recently stayed here as travelled from the north to visit family. I personally don't think it was value for money. (£85pn) At times I found the staff snappy and miserable. For example, we moved tables together so there was space for all our group, which wasn't received well. I understand it is in the centre to Shrewsbury but with... More

We have stayed about four times and find it fine for our purpose. We have friends in the area so visit regularly and do try to book abbots mead as the parking (if your lucky that is) is handy and safe. The Indian across the rd is a fab place to eat and within walking distance to everywhere. I do... More

Location was excellent. Staff were very pleasant and efficient. Room was ok but a bit tatty (broken shower switch; torn net curtain; lampshades need to be replaced; main light very dim). On the plus side, the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. Hotel is quite dated and the cleanliness of some areas was not great (light... More

We stayed here on Saturday night and were very quickly checked in by a very pleasant man who I believe is the owners son,a nice warm welcome thanks. I could waffle but I wont,so here's a few pointers- A good location with excellent free parking close to the town centre. Decor of rooms and public areas could do with sprucing... More

We stayed here as a group; booking several rooms whilst going to a wedding in Shrewsbury cathedral. The location could not have been better for this. The rooms were better than one would expect for a 2 star hotel. We stayed in room 17 in the basement which had a poor review elsewhere but we were more than happy. The... More

My Husband and I have just returned from a one night stay at the Abbots Mead. It a beautiful grade II listed house, in an ideal location to visit Shrewsbury, you turn right and go into the town and left and you can go over the bridge and be by the river. We arrived early and the proprietors were really... More

Lovely hotel near to town centre. Comfortable stay with good food and friendly staff. Our room was very quiet and spacious. Hotel very clean and tidy. Would recommend this hotel. Close to the English bridge and lovely river walks.

There's a picture of the Shropshire Volunteer Artillery dated 1896 hanging in the hall and I suspect if any of these lads travelled forward in time to present day and visited this hotel they'd feel right at home! It's very dated, but clean and welcoming with helpful staff. We stayed in a fairly spacious family room, which I thought was... More

My boyfriend and I spent a few days in Shrewsbury and we stayed at the Abbots Mead Hotel. It is a very pleasant hotel indeed. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was very spacious and beautifully decorated and clean. There were tea and coffee making facilities, wi-fi which came in very handy, and plenty of storage... More

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.
