Reviewed 23 July 2011

We stayed here for our son's wedding and from the moment we arrived we were very impressed by this hotel's extremely high standards. Our room overlooking the golf course was delightful, spacious and immaculately presented. The wedding itself was exceptionally well organised and the food was divine. I would definitely recommend this place for a wedding venue to anyone who wants to get married without the stress, they have it down to a fine art!
We used all the hotel's facilities; golf, leisure, beauty room, bars & restaurant. We can only conclude that the level of staff training must be incredibly high and ongoing, as nothing was too much trouble.
As we live in Spain and have family living locally to Redditch, we won't hesitate to choose the Abbey Hotel and Country Club to stay for all our future visits.

We got married at The Abbey on Saturday 9th July and couldnt have wished for a better day.
The room layouts for the civil ceremony, wedding breakfast and the evening reception were perfect. The food was fantastic - so many of our guests actually said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding.
All the staff were attentitive, friendly and couldnt do enough for us. Special mentions must go to Chris Osbourne & Caroline for running the day, ensuring everything went smoothly. Thank you also to Pam for co-ordinating the wedding (everything organised in just 2 meetings!) even the Head chef 'Locky' took time out to give us samples & ideas for the food in one of the meetings.
We had a choice of several beautiful bedrooms and went for the four poster 'Royal'. Thanks also to Bev who manages the servicing of the bedrooms, she organised a suprise bottle of bubbly for the room - a lovely touch!
All in all a perfect day at a wonderful venue. Thank you Abbey Hotel!

I have used this hotel many times over the years and have always found the welcome to be cheery, sincere and very attentive. This time was no different, and i was lucky to get a good size room with flat screen TV and a lovely new bathroom.

Not wishing to sit alone in the restaurant I opted for a meal in the Tawnys Bar, linked to the golf club. This is a nice laid back area with sports on the TV and booths to sit in, as well as a nice terrace. Whilst i went for the light meals, the set menu in the main restaurant did look inviting and certainly affordable.

I will continue to use this hotel, as they say 'don't try and fix, what's not broken'.

Room Tip: Always complement the hotel as soon as you greet the receptionist.

We had a wonderful celebration in the Henley Suite with 40 of our friends and family. The planning was very professional and friendly. All the staff were just great at the planning stage and especially on the day. The food was great, everyone commented. The room looked wonderful and the access to the garden was ideal for photographs. Everything went to plan and nothing was too much trouble for the waiting staff. It was just perfect. I can't thank everyone enough.

We have visited The Abbey quite a few times over the years, and every time we have the service is second to none.
The Reception staff are always smiling, always happy to help with any request, wether large or small, nothing was to much trouble.
We have met the General Manger before this visit, we had the good fortune to actually sit and have a good old natter with him this time, and what a pleasant friendly genuine
young man he is, his name was John.
He recommended Birmingham to us, to have a shopping trip there, he even offered to take us to the station for the train as it was not far from where he lived, and what a great day we had. We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked for another weekend at the end of July, and possibly for sometime at the end of November early December for the German Market in Birmingham Town Center, looking forward to seeing all the team at The Abby, and once again thankyou all so much
