We stayed at the Abbotsford for one night. We were greeted at the door by the host who was welcoming snd enthusiastic. The room was spotless and it had everything we needed including very comfy beds.

Abbottsford Guest House was very clean, with comfy beds and the breakfast was good, friendly staff and value for money( It is about 25mins walk to the city centre) only problem for us was being on the top floor, as we are not as young as we were, but we should have asked about this prior to booking!

I only stayed one night here but I was really pleased I had booked there. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. My room was clean, warm and well furnished. The bathroom was bright and the shower was a really good power shower? Excellent cooked breakfast. I highly recommend this place.

Stayed at the Abbotsford for 2 nights for a weekend break away. A beautifully kept B&B, the rooms are lovely and comfortable. The decor and general presentation of the house is beautiful. The lady who runs it couldn't have done enough for us and was extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast was also gorgeous. I will be staying there again...

Myself and two friends had the pleasure of staying at the Abbotsford guest house for 3 nights over the New Year. The room we stayed in was very spacious, the facilities were clean and the beds were very comfy. The location was ideal. It is roughly a 20 minute work from the town centre (which was quite a pleasant walk)....
