“Not Great”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Stayed 1 night for business in April.
Had a single occupency room whcih was £45 including Breakfast, and it was Ok for the price.
The room however was dirty, bathroom grubby, sheets dirty, electrics dodgy, and the room was musty.

Evening meal was reasonable but overpriced.

Girl doing the watressing was gormless, rude, and unkempt.

Would i stay here again......100% no...not even for one night.

Room Tip: Choose somewhere else.

We stayed overnight when attending a family party and one night was certainly enough. We were charged £80 for a twin room but on arrival found the room to be filthy- carpets not vaccuumed, cobwebs,dirty tissues on the floor, ripped sheets and towels and the shower was not very nice at all!
I was amazed to find that the lamp was wired to a round pin plug - surely the electrics should be more up to date than that.
Breakfast was standard. All in all, I would not go back nor recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed at this Hotel at the weekend as we were attending a wedding and the reception was at the town hall which is just up the road and why we chose to stay here. I booked a family room which cost £115 for 3 of us for the Saturday night. The room was very cramped with a double and single bed all lined up next to each other. The shower was stained and dirty looking and the only toiletries were 2 bars of soap. There weren’t enough towels for 3 people, the beds were hard but from reading other reviews at least the windows opened! We didn't spend too much time in the room to be honest as it was just a place to sleep....ha! Thanks to the church bells that chime every half hour till midnight and the kebab shop 2 doors away...no chance of either an early night or peaceful night’s sleep at this hotel. We had to lie in bed and listen to Southampton football fans chanting songs outside the kebab shop till early hours and then the church bells start again at 9am on a Sunday morning. Never again!

Sometimes it can be uncomfortable to be a single lady traveler, but not at the Abbey Hotel. The location right across from the Abbey, yet in a quiet street, cannot be bettered. The hotel rooms are old-fashioned and well-used, but comfortable (with all the usual facilities), cared for and clean. The bed was a little harder than I am used to. The owner and staff could not have been more friendly, and I felt very well looked after. The pub is a lovely quiet one without music or flashing screens, and when the mobile phone of one of the guests went off, I spotted many a raised eyebrow around the bar. The menu was surprisingly extensive, good plain pub food, at reasonable prices. The Pinot Grigio I had was fresh and cool. After supper I sat in the bar with my tea and a book, completely undisturbed, and feeling quite at home.
In short, in relation to the price charged, it is the perfect place to stay.

Bar area OK - oldy worldy, a locals local feel. Seemed fine. The room was dirty with stained carpets, dust all over, stained headboards, worn through bed linen (clean though), lumpy old beds and a shower that changed from hot to ice when it felt like it. Electrics dodgy as some plugs only intermitently seemed to work and outside our room there was a plug with a loose cover. To cap it all the breakfast was traditional tastless greasy spoon.

the owner gave the air of not giving a stuff - could not possibly be blind to it, just did not care. Our previous 2 nights were in a place costing the same with wonderful staff, fantastic breakfast and very nice clean rooms !

For 80 quid I expected a lot better. Unfortunately there were no alternates that late.

I see a comment for a 'place to crash'... i would add.. only if you have to !

We spent £80 a night for this place, and while we didn't expect the most luxurious accommodations, what greeted us was shocking. A room with stained carpet, a bathroom with stained carpet as well (we couldn't believe our eyes), and a bath, with no shower. A couple bars of soap and no shampoo.
We complained to the owner that for £80 we expected at the very least a shower, let alone a small shampoo bottle. He told us that 'we told you it was ensuite'.......

The bar is pleasant, the locals (on the quiz night I was there) were friendly. Being a resident doesn't help when it comes to after-hours (and therefore legal) nightcaps.

The room was small, the bathroom also cramped (with nothing but a complimentary tiny bar of soap). There was a stain on the wall, and the sash window wouldn't stay open (the top half was painted shut).

It's OK as a place to crash, and the pub is fine for a drink, but you're not going to impress anyone if you take them there for the night
