We stayed at the Abbots Mead Hotel just for one night. We arrived late morning but our room was ready and so we could check in and go straight to the room. Andrew met us and was very welcoming and helpful. We had a room on the first floor at the back and although not huge it was very comfortable... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. We were made welcome on our arrival and given useful information on Shrewsbury town. The hotel is spacious with a reception and bar and a dining room. Our room was clean and on the top floor. There is no lift. Breakfast was a buffet of fruit, cereals and yoghurt and various cooked options. We had... More

Large family room with a proper third bed not one of those awful Z beds! Good B&B package and a lovely breakfast. Great location as very close to the river and good for a refreshing walk. Pubs and restaurants all close to the B&b. The hosts are very welcoming also. A far better experience than a travellodge or premier inn.

Stayed here with friends for one night on 26/01/15 . Lovely place , nice owners and a price that is far better than a Premier Inn . The Abbots Mead has a very central location , which makes the free parking that they offer into a double bonus . The rooms are not massive , but how much time do... More

This 2 star AA metro hotel is a comfortable stay, centrally located in Shrewsbury so walking distance to the old town and tourist attractions. The building is Georgian so the rooms and ensuite bathroom are small but warm and well catered with a kettle and a selection of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The bathroom decor in our room was...

The room was a little on the small size but it was fine for one nights stay, it was warm and comfortable and that was enough for us. The breakfast in the morning was amazing, freshly cooked and...
