Stayed for 1 night as I was in the area for a business meeting.
Having booked this hotel from the customer satisfaction levels on a comparison website, I was unsure what to expect. I always like to stay away from faceless corporate hotels but there is always a risk of being let down. No such problems with The Abbey Lodge.
A warm welcome (i think from the actual owner who was working behind reception) was received and check in was easy.
The room I had was very clean and a nice size. The decor is quite modern which was a nice suprise. The quality of the furniture was very good and the bed a good size and comfortable. I didn't have a bath in my room but the shower cubicle was very big, and again the bathroom was spotless.
My only little grumble is that the room didn't have air conditioning. It was a warm evening added to the fact that my room was above the kitchen (although there was no noise). As such the room got very hot.
At breakfast I received a warm welcome and the cooked breakfast was very good. a selection of cereals were available also. In terms of pastries they only had croissants, but I do not know of there were others and they had all gone.
All in all this hotel has returned my confidence in that independent smaller hotels can offer a great stay and that there is an alternative to expensive corporate hotels.
