- Also Known As:
- Abbey Hotel Tintern, Wales
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the heart of the wye-valley, the Abbey Hotel sits proudly in an area of outstanding natural beauty with astounding views of the infamous Tintern Abbey and woodlands of the wye-valley. Dating back to the early 1800’s, references of the hotel can be found as early as 1804 when the landlord of the Beaufort Inn, as it was previously named, would hold the key to the gate of the Abbey and augment his income by admitting visitors and conducting tours. The area originally occupied by the Abbey was much larger than it is today. The precinct wall followed the lane that runs along the back of The Abbey Hotel and its remnants can still be seen to this day. In order to cater for the growing tourism trade within Tintern and the Wye-Valley as a whole, the hotel has been vigorously upgraded throughout History with keys dates including initial extensions dating back to 1910. Along with these very upgrades the name has also been subject to change and has evolved from The Beaufort Inn, The Beaufort Inn Hotel, The Beaufort Hotel and most recently the Abbey Hotel. ... more less
