My Husband and I stayed for 2 nights in a standard room. At first I was pleased to find our allocated room was in the main (old) part of the hotel, rather than the extension at the back as others have commented it wasn't as nice there. We were attending a wedding at Abbey House & Gardens, so the location was absolutely perfect.
Everything about the hotel is lovely and quaint, as photos suggest, so I'll just detail a few negatives, which some people may find useful.
Firstly, our room was on the second floor, the bathroom was quite cramped (though not too much of an issue), with one window which was kind of around the corner from the bed. There is no aircon and the fan we requested didn't really help to cool the room. Ok, so we visited on one of the hottest weekends of the year and I was 30wks pregnant at the time, but it's something to be aware of if you like to be cool when sleeping, like I do.
Secondly, quite a minor point really, but we found the breakfast a bit too fancy for our tastes... I love to have hash browns and baked beans with my full English, a couple of sausages and several rashers of bacon. The full English on offer seemed a bit bare, so I opted for the eggs Benedict, which was lovely.
Again these are really minor points and shouldn't deter anyone from staying here, just things to bear in mind to have an enjoyable stay.
