Stayed overnight for a function. The staff at the hotel are great especially the bar and receptionist. The food is great and good value. Reasonable prices bar but rooms are good but could be better.

Visited this week with family, have been a few times and not been disappointed at all with the service or the meal. Only criticism I have is the size of the tortillas you get with the chicken etc for the fajitas, they are too small considering how much filling you get! Good value for money and will be back .

Sorry to say that again I was disappointed in the food I ate - BBQ chicken. The chicken wasn't succulent and the BBQ sauce unexpectedly and unpleasantly spicy. This is not the first time I have had overspiced food on a WEDNESDAY evening ( the evening we usually meet) and I wonder if there is a different chef on that... More

We ate in the restaurant and again the staff were attentive and efficient. The food was great, plenty of it and reasonable in price. Our family joined us for the evening and we... More

We have been to The Abbotsford many times over the past few years, both for a quick lunch and a full family dinner, as it is local to us, the food (quality and quantity) is always very good and none of the dishes are too expensive - the menu hasn't changed for years, however the choice is huge so you...
