This is a in a nice location, quiet, short walk into the centre, very close to the river walk for your early morning walk before a good English breakfast. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful.

The staff at Abbott are very helpful. I spend one night there before returning to my country, and I must say that the accommodation was very cosy. The breakfast was good, and to the stipulated time that I was told it would be served. The bed was very comfortable and although that it very cold in the UK at the...

A nice little town centre hotel. It's family run and made to feel very welcome. It's not a 5 star but perfectly acceptable and close to the town centre. The room I had was number 5 at the top of the stairs overlooking the car park. It was nice and bright despite being a dull February day.

Stopped over for one night. Good car parking. Lovely owners. Cute clean room. Nice family run feeling through out the hotel. Some parts could do with a re decoration but nothing of big concern. Good location for shops and bars. Tasty breakfast and well catered for (had veggie sausages)

Visited Shrewsbury for a family event and chose this hotel due to its close proximity to the venue and it being in the town centre. The double room was a good size with a decent en-suite. The mattress was slightly harder than I would go for it but didn't prevent me having a decent sleep on both nights. Despite it...

We visit Shrewsbury about 6 times a year for a night just to shop, have a few drinks with friends and a meal so always look to stay fairly central. We arrived early afternoon and were pleased to get a space in the car park at the front of the hotel. After a warm welcome we went to our room...

I come to Shrewsbury every October by myself to visit friends and stay five nights and for the past three years I have stayed at this hotel. Parking is tricky in Shrewsbury and I have always been able to park in the hotel parking lot with no difficulty. The bed is comfortable and the shower is fine although water pressure...
