“Unforgettable stay at Abbey Lodge Hotel!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

One of the best hotels I have stayed at in all of my travels. Something that is extremely noticeable is the friendliness of the staff. Not ONE SINGLE sour face at the Abbey Lodge! Well done to everyone!
The rooms are immaculate, the breakfast is superb, the public areas a joy to be in and the garden is exquisite.
It is like being in a bed and breakfast with a 5 star service.
This hotel is totally recommendable and we will definitely stay there again, whenever we go back to the area.
Thank you Abbey Lodge Hotel for a wonderful, most memorable stay. We won't ever forget you here in Belgium.

Room Tip: The room we stayed in was in the back of the hotel and it was VERY quiet, although there is a street...

Stayed for two nights with other family members ranging from 88 to 28 year olds. Parking is somewhat limited, although that didn't present any problems and the level access from the car park was a great advantage for the 88-yr old. Very comfortable rooms with great facilities and breakfast was very acceptable. My only complaint is the lack of a lounge area with comfortable chairs if we all wanted to sit around together. Very reasonable prices, with B&B costing less for one person than the Travelodge we had stayed in on a previous night. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed two nights to follow Tour de France and very busy. Comfy rooms spacious with good facilities. Staff very friendly but parking is limited.
Could have done with more than two sockets in bedroom. Difficult to charge phones camera batteries etc.
Would use this one again.

I was greeted warmly on arrival by the owner who checked me in in a few minutes then showed me to our room explaining times of meals and facilities of the hotel, he also explained breakfast finished at 9 but if we came down at that time they would still accommodate us. The room was great the jacuzzi bath was bliss, be aware the water gets hot quickly which is a plus point. Would I recommend definitely would I return certainly. All staff members friendly and helpful.

I have stayed here for a total of 8 weeks whilst on a teaching placement at a nearby school and I have to say this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The staff are welcoming and will go the extra mile to make sure you are at ease whilst staying there. Will definitely use this hotel if I ever visit nearby again

What a surprise, was booked into this hotel as part of a large group doing a charity walk between Skipton and Leeds. I had no pre expectations of this hotel so went in completely blind. What a fantastic hotel this was. It was modern, comfortable and the staff were brilliant. They looked after all 35 of us really well and the evening meal and breakfast were as good as any swanky hotel in London. You will not be disappointed staying in this hotel...a very affordable price too. I hope to stay here again soon.

We were due to be staying at the Hollins Hall Marriott for a golfing competition however we needed an extra room and the prices they were quoting were more than double our original cost. We therefore looked around the local area and found Abbey Lodge scoring high on trip advisor.
Cancelling the Marriott, we booked one superior double and one twin room and after a friendly speedy checkin we found the rooms to be clean, and of a good size.
Very nicely decorated as well.

The DVD player is a nice touch and would be ideal if you were there for a few nights, however we were there during the World Cup so no suprises what my football mad family had tuned in.

We had intended to eat locally however as the evening was quite breezy we decided to just give the hotel food a try. No problems again, good basic pub grub, decent size portions and very reasonably priced. Two courses for 4 of us, with a round of drinks came in around £50 - can't argue with that.

ASDA 24 supermarket just round the corner if you find you've forgotten anything.

Inclusive breakfast another nice touch.

Speedy checkout. All the staff we had to deal with were very helpful and friendly.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone, it's small but very well ran.

Suppose if I had to give any down side if would be the parking which others mention is a little tight (it's essentially back street parking) however the hotel do advise lots of alternative parking facilities in the immediate vicinity so they've identified the issue and are doing all the can to address it.

If we need to return to the area I would not even consider using anywhere else.

Great find.
