My wife and I have just had 1 night BB& evening meal at Coombe Abbey. What a fabulous hotel which is steeped in history. You feel like you are being transported back in time. So much history in this hotel. As the name suggests this was once an Abbey, which is complete with moat.
From entering into reception to when we left, every member of staff you encountered greeted you with a smile and hello. So nice to see.
We stayed in room 140 which was complete with 4 poster, antique furniture, plus a hidden bathroom!! What appears to be a bookcase, with actual books on it, is in fact the front to the bathroom. Our room had 2 large windows, one which looked over the courtyard and the other which looked over the moat but also you could see down the very long tree lined straight to the hotel.
Bring December the whole place was decked out in Xmas regalia and really gave you a real sense of the festivities to follow in a couple of weeks. Even mince pies and apples were in the entrance hall for guests to help themselves. Very tasty they were to.
The evening meal was sensational. The restaurant is in a very large conservatory. We were very fortunate to be seated in a booth for 2, which really added to the occasion. Very good choice on the menu. The food was quite pricey BUT the quality you got justified the prices. Thoroughly enjoyed starters, mains and sweet, plus, of course, the obligatory bottle of wine.
Breakfast the next morning taken in the same restaurant, and, again we got the booth. Good selection of fresh fruit, cereals, fruit juices etc to get you started.
Although I am not a fan of buffet breakfast, a very good choice was on offer for you to help yourself, including scrambled and fried eggs, bacon, sausage, mushroom, hash browns, beans and a very nice potato/bacon mix. IF you don’t fancy this, there are other options which would be cooked to order. You will not go hungry here.
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Coombe Abbey and it won’t be the last.
