We have just spent a weekend in Cleobury Mortimer, with The Talbot being chosen for its location for walking and for handy drinks in the evening. The landlady and staff were very welcoming and we decided to stay in the bar the first evening, where an excellent guest beer kept us coming back for more. The rooms were quirky, hundreds of years old, and cosy. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was traditional, clean and comfortably old fashioned, with a lovely old latched wooden door - suited us fine. We were on the main road but not disturbed by traffic or passers by. The breakfast on both days was huge and delicious with large duck eggs. The location is perfect for walks and we did a great 6 mike walk from the doorstep. On the second night we sampled other local pubs, and ate at The Talbot, a good choice on the menu and good value, tasty food. We will definitely visit again.
Despite the previous review, we finally chose this hotel on it's apparent charm and atmosphere and as a result of the high standard of customer service when I called a couple of times with a booking enquiry, to request menu details and to make a dinner reservation; a stark contrast to some other local hotels which we had called earlier the same day.
Upon arrival, the reception staff were warm, welcoming and efficient and we were promptly shown to our plenty large enough, well furnished and presented room. The four poster, period furniture and décor were lovely and the room was well equipped, including nice complementary touches like bottled water and a cafetiere with fresh coffee. The bedroom and ensuite were suitably spacious, stylish and well appointed and the bedroom had additional double glazing (without preventing the windows from opening) to eliminate any traffic noise.
The bar and restaurant areas were charming and atmospheric, the service was warm, attentive and well timed. Dinner was thoroughly enjoyable and the food prepared to a high standard, all three courses were well presented and very tasty, as indeed was breakfast the following morning. The Hotel’s gardens and herb garden are also well worth a visit.
Thanks to the Hundred House Hotel for a very enjoyable stay, we will definitely return.

We had a wonderful stay at Angel House from start to finish! On arrival we were brought tea and cakes in the conservatory and watched a beautiful sunset. Our room was very comfortable and had stunning views of the surrounding area. Great breakfast.
The room was amazing - really warm and well furnished - very homely. My breakfasts both days were delicious. Perfect if you wanted a walk in the beautiful countryside but a little isolated if relying on public transport or taxis.
Regular weekend visitor to this location but first time stayed at this venue. Large, comfortable room, excellent facilities and helpful friendly staff who make you feel welcome. Food at the hotel is good quality, well cooked and very reasonably priced.
Booked this hotel at the last minute great choice staff could't have been more helpful even when the radiator was not working very well in our room they immediately supplied an electric heater will certainly use this hotel again.
"Excellent food with a warm and lasting welcome and"
A wonderful welcome from the owners of the Bird in Hand. The pub itself is quirky in it's upper layout and a real treat to try to work out, this may account to the buildings age as it has been standing since well before the Ironbridge itself. The rooms are comfortably furnished with a 70's early 80's feel, with all you need for a short stay. Meticulously clean throughout with a shower en-suite, tea and coffee, radio TV and beds that are SO comfortable, had it not been for the bedroom window view of the River Severn in the mornings and the promise of a lovely and filling home cooked breakfast served with a hearty felt Good Morning from Steve, it would have been hard to leave the beds amazing comfort. The food at the Bird in Hand is impeccable, the hardest part was deciding what to have from an extensive menu and the daily specials. The portions are generous but just right for a holiday indulgent. Allow for a rest between starter, main and then dessert if you can fit it. If you cannot please rest a while loner with a cask ale or cider until you can fit a pud in, you wont regret it. The family running are accommodating, friendly and go out of their way to assist. This B&B was a rare find in this current days trend for clinical and impersonate hotel B&B trends. It's a establishment that we will be returning to as they have perfected the art of a traditional B&B service.
