I should make it clear we did not stay here overnight but attended the hotel to attend a funeral reception.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was clean and welcoming. It is set in grounds that adjoin a gold course so there was plenty of greenery to look at.

The food provided as part of the reception was of a decent standard, although it was 'breakfast' food as the reception was early in the morning but if the food later on in the day is of the same standard, I am sure it is absolutely fine. Based on the experience I had, if I had the need to stay in the area again, I would certainly consider staying here.

From the minute I checked in I found the hotel an exceptionally welcoming place
I was there for a UKAS training seminar. I arrived on my own the previous night and had dinner in the restaurant being looked after very well by a bubbly and delightful Stephanie who poured me a pint of McGuinness (ask Steph).
Throughout my stay I found the hotel an excellent place to stay and would stay again without hesitation
Thank you one and all

The staff were friendly and really supportive. However, I found the Abbey really old-fashioned and far too noisy for my taste (thin-walled). I bought breakfast one morning but the next morning I just skipped it! £13 for that kind of breakfast is not worth it. Go to Scandinavia and see the breakfasts they serve there! Just plain white bread here is a shame...

I used the gym and that was really ok. I also asked where I could take a run but the girl in the reception couldn´t help me on that. I found my self running on the golf course and ended up on the road that had no pavements! That was a bit nervous getting back without being hit by a car...

Dear AnnJenN72

Firstly I'm really pleased you found the team to be friendly and supportive. We do pride ourselves on delivering great service so thank you for mentioning this.

I'm sorry you didn't find breakfast to your taste. Our full range of freshly cooked English products as well as extensive continental options is normally very popular with our guests so we are disappointed you skipped on this occasion.

Apologies our reception team were not able to assist in advice on where to take a run. There are safe options locally to do so and I have raised this with our FOH team to improve local amenities knowledge.

We're disappointed to hear you felt parts were thin walled or old fashioned but you may be interested to know the hotel is having large refurbishment programme starting very soon with bedrooms and public areas being extensively upgraded.

If you visit again and I sincerely hope you do, I'm sure you will be suitably impressed.

Kind regards

Vipul

I use the Spa here for treatments most weeks and booked some of the new facials, massage, body scrub with Elemis products,my lovely Amy took care of them all and gave a discount too. The service here excellent all staff very attentive and friendly, I can honestly say I’ve never been here and not been genuinely looked after, we have chirpy Bailey always ready with a smile Elena Amy all great to be around. I finished off with nails and waxing and had a great 2 weeks highly recommend the products and the team Abbey, a credit to the hotel

Returned for a second stay after invite from new management to review improvements following a poor first stay. Can I just say - what a difference. The room was a superior double and was decorated beautifully. Room was spacious, clean and tidy and had all the amenities you would require. Bathroom was large with separate bath and shower. The bed was large for a double and extremely comfortable. Room was warm and cosy. Customer service, especially from manager was brilliant. I was provided with an individual gluten free menu to use in the Bramblings restaurant. Thank you for a nice stay.
