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...

We stayed here over the weekend and had no complaints about the room or staff. The central location is perfect for town. 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...
