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

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

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
