Very friendly service, car parking available, great location. Perfect for a weekend away. We stayed in room 9 which was a nice cosy room with a clean modern bathroom. We didn't hear any other customer noise other than the door opposite closing on one occasion. The bed was comfortable, there was a TV in the room and the breakfast was... More

It's close to the city centre with the associated problem of dome street noise and limited parking However the place is clean well looked after and certainly a good choice to spend a night or two or more. Finally breakfast is as... More

We travelled as 2 couples for a short stay and found Abbots Mead excellent. None of the many pubs and restuarants are a great distance. Our room had very comfortable beds, a small but very adequate bathroom with a very efficient shower. If one wanted to be very negative the room could do with a redecorate but as far as... More

The hotel is a small friendly hotel, easy reach of shops and restaurants. Parking was great but you had to leave your keys at reception if you blocked somebody in the car park. Room was small but comfortable with tea making facilities, breakfast was very good - good quality bacon, sausages and black pudding. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would... More

The location of the hotel is great, near to the riverside walk and within easy reach of shops and restaurants; onsite parking was also a bonus. Very friendly and helpful staff and a lovely tasty breakfast. We were unhappy with our room (no15), which smelt a bit musty but were quickly changed to room 2, which had a larger window... More

Quaint but dated hotel. Room small but clean and bathroom was tiny. We should be beyond drippy showers but it was ok. Free car park was very helpful and in town centre so no need for cabs. But, breakfast was excellent! Owner and staff are lovely people.
