Our family spent a week at Abbots in July, and had a splendid time. Our two rooms were comfortable and well equipped with comforts, including the best power showers in England. Breakfasts were delicious and tailored to individual tastes. The location in one of the most beautiful small villages in England is not to be beaten. The village store is... More

You can't fault Abbots. It's undeniably good and reliable. In a perfect setting you can look up and down the main village street, looking out a world gone by, that really does still exist. It's here!! Half expect Miss Marple to arrive with a dog collared vicar and for the latest gossip to be overheard with either poisonings afoot or... More

In a location central to a lot of south coast tourist attractions and also quiet at night when you need a good rest, Abbots is well placed as a B&B. Rooms are clean and comfortable and in the room I had, a very comfortable bed. Nicola, Adam and the staff are attentive and helpful, looking after my dietary requirements easily.... More

Many thanks for your review Patrick. It was a pleasure to meet you and I enjoyed our chats - who would have thought that although you now live in Australia, and I in Dorset we were actually born in the same Hospital in Surrey - small world indeed. I very much hope to welcome you back again in the future.... More

I've stayed at Abbots twice now and each time I've been impressed at how friendly and helpful Nicola and all her staff are. The rooms are above the Abbots tearooms (that's really good too!) Our bedroom overlooked the village street and the beautiful C16th New Inn. The street was quiet and the room was spotlessly clean. Nice comfy bed and... More

Adam and Nicola do a superb job at Abbots. Clean, comfy and cozy. Garden area is attractive and the location is perfect. Breakfast was abundant, delicious and a perfect way to start the day (make sure to try the beans on toast with their 'fantastic' sausages, you won't be disappointed.). We will be back!

I would recommend this lovely tea room to anyone, we had a lovely warm welcome. The omelette was delicious with plenty of filling with salad and chips. The staff were very friendly and polite and made us feel very welcome

What a delightful place. A delicious roast dinner and everything wasas it should be. Great friendly team, efficient service. Lovely setting and beautifully decorated tea room.

Dropped into Abbots today having spotted the place on our last visit. Venue is nice, service was ok but food quality was poor. Price of scones was astronomical! cheese sandwich was made with tasteless cheese, cheap with sliced bread. Felt like a tourist trap!

NicWilkes, Owner at Abbots, responded to this review

Firstly thank you for your review. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your visit. We take great pride in sourcing local produce and the cheese that you describe as being 'cheap and tasteless' is actually West Country Mature Cheddar which we have been using on our menu for over 4 years. Our scones are all home made, every... More

I've not stayed here in the B&B as I live locally but use the tea rooms regularly for both pleasure and business. Never had a bad meal or cream tea here. Service is always exceptional.
