At short notice we booked in here for a couple of nights. We did not know that it was a graduation week for this university town. We have stayed at Best Western hotels a few times but I'm afraid we must have had the "worst" room in this one. It was a double room but was only big enough to... More

We have visited Abbots Barton several times now. It is our first-choice venue for the area and we have always been impressed at the service. Things haven't always been right (though anything not right has been minor) - but they have always been put right quickly and willingly - and that is the true test. We have booked again for... More

Very friendly welcome by all the staff. On checking in given a "free" upgrade which meant a room in the roof but it did have a whirlpool bath. The room was acceptable but could have been cleaned a bit better. I know it is cob web season but the back of the wardrobe could have done with a dust. The... More

A very pleasant stay. Well appointed and spotless room. A welcoming atmosphere as we walked into reception set the tone for our stay.Without exception, the staff were charming and nothing was too much trouble. Food was good but how one longed for windows in the restaurant at breakfast. There was an error in service at dinner on the last night,... More

Lovely Hotel, spotless room, pleasant staff but we felt breakfast was expensive, and the dining room too dark, NO windows. Just a 10. mins: walk in to Town, ideal. Parking was ok. will probably be better when the new building is finished.
