“Great Training Venue; Wonderful Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

Spent a great evening with colleagues at Missenden Abbey - it seemed that nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff. The training room the following day was bright, airy and had everything even the most picky of trainers would need. Lots of back up from the staff, great food and the freedom to 'break out' into all areas surrounding the training room. I can highly recommend this venue as friendly, supportive and atmospheric.

My firm used Missenden Abbey for a major conference. Service was excellent. Missenden Abbey is a fantastic venue for hosting meetings and I cannot fault the first-class, professional services and facilities provided by the centre. I would not hesitate to recommend Missenden Abbey to others.

We stayed here for two nights when attending our friend's wedding. The old Abbey building is mostly very nice and the staff were friendly and welcoming, but that is all that is good about this place.

In terms of accommodation, the breakfast was fine/satisfactory however the rooms are in dire need of some major refurbishment. Our room was clean enough but the finishes are so old that no amount of cleaning will leave them actually clean.

The tiles, grout, sanitary ware, bed, desk, chair, wall and ceiling decoration are all 10 years past the point where they should be replaced. The shower has reasonable pressure but the shower enclose is very small in the corner of a very small shower room.

If you are only planning to stay one night and aren't too fussy then this would be ok, otherwise I'd look at the Inns in the village (5 minutes walk) that will give you more in every way than Missenden Abbey will for the same or (most likely) less money.

On booking in we was given the key to room 49, on entering, i went into the bathroom and was shocked to see pubic hairs on the bathroom floor and in the bottom of the shower, long browns hair over the floor, but the worst part smeared blood on the tiles, asked to be moved immediately and was given room 24, could not believe exact same thing as first room, i insisted that they got someone to clean it immediately and got my room rate reduced, we couldn't move hotel as our daughter was getting married the next day, rooms are very tired looking and they need to look at getting some cleaning staff who knows how to clean, rooms very dark, there saving grace was the Marquee was lovely (outside company) and the food was nice and bar staff very friendly, also the wedding coordinator Natasha was amazing, but would not recommend because of the state of the rooms and the cleanliness.

Room Tip: Ask for room in main part of the Abbey

Booked on the day to stay with my husband

We had to check out the same day.
Hotel room had hair everywhere in the shower and on the bathroom floor
There was shaving hair on the basin.
The tea cups was used and the spoons- no clean ones was put out for us to use.
There was used water in the kettle

Bedsheets wasn't changed and had stains on it.
We didn't pay and checkout however the hotel stated that administration fee had to be charged because we booked on line so the online company takes that.

I had high hopes checking in at reception, as the main building is beautiful, so I was very disappointed by the dreary, soulless, tired, characterless, small bedroom in the accommodation block. It was clean - about the only plus point I can make. The shower was terrible - a dribble of luke warm water and the smallest basin possible. Scale flakes in the kettle and no tea bags were a minor irritation. Breakfast was good.

Pros: cheap, very close to Great Missenden, lovely Abbey (main building), well-stocked bar with friendly staff, free internet, great wedding venue, pretty grounds, solid breakfast

Cons: ugly additional building with small rooms more akin to University halls of residence, early breakfast and checkout (though late check-out possible for a fee).

Conclusion: we were there for a wedding and this venue was perfect. The rooms aren't particularly nice but the location and value outweighs this.
