“Basic Student Accommodation”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2008

I booked this on the basis of the previous review plus the hotel website which claims it has a gym and sauna. When I arrived, the receptionist said that it no longer had either a gym or sauna, and the only leisure facility was the bar ! How on earth the previous reviewer could praise this place beats me.
I got a tiny room, with a tiny wardrobe, a basic shower room with the tiniest hand basin, and a basic bed.
At breakfast you're even expected to sit at long tables with other fellow sufferers.
The place is run by a local university, and if you're happy with basic no-frills student accommodation, you'll be happy.
Me, I'll be staying in a Travel Lodge next time - more upmarket !

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2007

I spent two weeks studying crafts. This was my third time and I was booked for a ground floor room which has a door opening on a lovely pool area but I decided to take the top story and was allowed to view the room first. It was room 51 on the east side. There are only a rew rooms on this side all of them with twin beds. Room was therefore a bit larger. Each room is cleaned for about 20 minutes a day! No elevators but staff will carry suitcases. No air cond or refrig in room but has iron, tv, clock radio, room telephone and lovely bathroom with window. Closet a bit small for two. Room includes full board and I gained 2 kg so beware. The Abbey has extensive grounds with a tree 400 years old and also crochet on the lawn. The main bldg also has a library and bar plus garden room where tea and coffee provided. Free computers available in lobby plus all the newspapers. Staff is very pleasant. Location is a small village with train to London nearby. But the weekend train service is problematic so check first as I had to get a bus at one point where train stopped running!

  • Liked — beautiful setting
  • Disliked — poor train service
