“A fantasy...”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

... and fantastic. It is inevitable to perceive oneself staying for a grand weekend at a baronial English manor house, as Abbots Grange has the ambience at perfection level. The warmth and hospitality are stunning, and every wish is an instant reality. My husband and I loved every moment of our stay, although the elegant chair in the bedroom did not invite for lounging. But the great room was enough; and how delightful and amazing to provide a side bar of after dinner drinks. Stacey and colleague are superstars and enhanced our 5 night stay with every conceivable comfort available to them, and the lovely tea and service to the room. A jewel set in a fairy tale part of the world. Shhh. Don't tell anyone.

Pat.

I love stating at this fantastic hideaway this is our 3rd year of spending the Christmas Celebration weekend here, and the atmosphere in the village is lovely. Topsy and Richard are amazing hosts - and I can't wait to come back in the New Year. It's a lovely start to December, and very relaxing before the start of the Christmas madness.

Once you get over the frustration of not being able to find this place, you're secretly grateful that no-one else can either! It's amazing how such a grand dwelling can be so hidden and yet so central to Broadway. We were met by Stacey who was delightfully friendly and efficient in describing what was where. Armed with the secret gate code, we were encouraged to treat the place as our own (very grand) country retreat. Our king-sized four-poster room had a separate bathroom just across the hall. Usually a separate bathroom would put me off, but I would encourage any guests to opt for this bedroom as it's really lovely, comfortable and spacious - as was the bathroom. Breakfast is served at a huge round table, so be prepared for a bit of small talk with other guests in the morning (unless of course you are there with friends), but the food is delicious. Whatever you opt for, leave some room for the pancakes - served warm with blueberries and maple syrup - yummy! In the evening, my partner and I had the baronial hall to ourselves. Port, sherry, whisky and soft drinks were left out for us to enjoy by candlelight in front of a roaring log fire. Those two evenings were the best chill-out I've had in ages. No TV, no computers - just gentle background music (which you could switch off if you didn't fancy that either). The only downside about this place for me, and I realise it might not bother some people, was the "eau de chien" aroma in the vestibule and the downstairs hallway, courtesy of the owners' 2 labradors. Some reviewers have denied this, and perhaps I just have an over-sensitive nose, but it was the first thing I pointed out to my partner when we walked through the front door. That aside, the whole experience was first class and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't be put off by the separate bathroom with one of the king-size bedrooms. Both are lovely...

A beautiful place to stay for a long weekend, with lovely rooms and only two minutes from the centre of Broadway. The Great Hall, log fire and complimentary drinks make a great place to relax after an evening meal out in one of the many pubs or restaurants on the high street. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. We're already planning a return visit to finish off trying all the options on the breakfast menu. Superb!

We stayed at Abbots Grange on 16th and 17th November, and also cannot recognise the place from the last review. Upon arrival we were met by Richard who served us a super afternoon tea in the great hall.
Later as our other friends arrived and settled in we realised we had failed to organise dinner in Broadway, at which point Topsy passed through and not only offered us complimentary champagne having discovered we were there to celebrate someones special birthday, but she also went to the trouble of booking us into two restaurants for Friday and Saturday evenings.

As our friends have already said ... breakfast was superb!

Now ... regarding any smell of wet dogs well thats just simply plain wrong! We are dog owners ourselves, we know wet dog smell!! - and there wasn't ANY!

This is an absolutely stunning place with extremely delightful owners, who go out of their way to make sure you are having a comfortable and enjoyable stay, plus complimentary drinks and chocs in the great hall!

Unfortunately the people from abroad who posted a poor review we never saw all weekend, and given their comments I believe they would have been better choosing an impersonal standard chain budget hotel if that's what they wanted - not Abbots Grange with its outstanding personal service!

We too will be back.

We stayed at Abbots Grange on 16th and 17th November also, but don't recognise the place from the last review. We were meeting 2 sets of friends to celebrate a 50th. We were met by a pleasant host Richard who served tea in the great hall, an amazing room with an amazing tea. the owners own Huffkins, an award winning chain of teashop in the Cotswolds, so as you might imagine, the afternoon tea in front of a roaring open fire was simply delightful. We had champagne and the owners booked us in at full restaurants for both nights as we had not been organised in advance,

For breakfast we could choose anything and our needs were more than met. Ne of our party had got confused and ordered by mistake but this was very professionally managed by Topsy and a no fuss substitute delivered and it was truly sumptuous.

We actually never smelt dogs and when my dog loving husband beckoned one from his quarters the dog was so well teamed it would not go out.

The rooms and location were awesome. We have travelled the world extensively but this was truly one of the most amazing stays ever, to be in a 1300 abbots Cotswold stone manor with 5 star service and a 4 poster room that was in the centre of Broadway could not have been better. So often hotel stays are impersonal and full of extras, but here everything was truly no trouble and from robes to water, champagne, fresh fruit, afternoon tea and a fabulous breakfast and shortbread and coffee in the rooms, everything was offered without an additional charge, we even had complimentary sherry whisky and port to help ourselves to in the great hall during the evening, so we were truly pampered. If you have a group get together the great hall and circular dining is perfect.

We will be back.

Kind regards

Karen

Room Tip: The Morris room has both a king size four poster and a wet room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestled in the lea of Broadway hill and standing in a little over eight acres of parkland grounds and gardens you will find the romantic Cotswold hideaway, Abbots Grange. Secluded, yet only 2 minutes walk from Broadway's 'picture perfect' village high street with its delightful array of independent boutique shops, restaurants and inns. This magical, award winning monastic manor has all the comforts you would expect from an AA five gold star 'highly commended' guest house. Bedrooms are equipped to a high standard with four poster beds, flat screen TVs and seating areas. Our premium accomodation, the magnificent Elizabethan Suite and Abbots Chambers can be booked directly through the Abbots Grange web site. Beds in all rooms and suites are dressed with the finest Egyptian cotton sheets to ensure a blissful nights sleep. Thick, fluffy white towels, bath robes and complimentary toiletries complete the en-suite bathrooms. The oldest dwelling in Broadway, Abbots Grange was built in about 1320 as the summer manor for the Abbot of Pershore. There are over 700 years of history to absorb here, perhaps while you unwind in front of the roaring log fire over afternoon tea... or by candlelight after dinner? Breakfast at Abbots Grange is a celebration of all things local. Served in the panelled dining room at the round table, you will find a mouth watering selection of fresh berries and seasonal fruits. Local sausages and smoked bacon together with Cotswold free range eggs. We offer a delicious vegetarian full English breakfast alternative, artisan baked breads and pastries from our own bakery - Huffkins - together with freshly brewed 100% Arabica coffees and loose leaf teas. ... more   less
