Broadway is a very good base from which to explore the Cotswolds. It is easily accessed and has a wealth of dining options for your evening meal. The Abbots Grange is a beautiful property. The common areas are large, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Some of the rooms come with fireplaces and a seating area that makes them very comfortable as well as pleasing to the eye. The bathrooms are up to date and comfortable. As with many baths in Europe, the step down from the tub/shower is a big one, and this needs to be considered if you have mobility issues.
The breakfast is sumptuous with cereals, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, and juices. You can then order cooked items ( you actually maker your choices the night before ) from a menu, and they will be ready at the time you specify. In the afternoons, they provide tea, coffee, and baked goods that are a real treat after a day on the road.
The owners of the property do not appear the least bit interested in meeting or interacting with their guests in any way. Getting a "hello" out of the mistress of the house was about as good as any of us could do. This is more than made up for by Stacey. Stacey is a lovely young lady who acts as the face of the property. She could not have made us feel more welcome, nor could she have done anything to make us more comfortable. Without her, the chilliness of the owners would be a bit off putting. With her, you will feel happy to be there.
I would definitely stay at this property if I am ever in the area again, particularly if Stacey is still acting as the hostess.
- 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
