My wife and I had a two night stay at this hotel over Easter and we took our one year old cockerpoo dog. The hotel staff were very friendly and very helpful in all our needs. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy a drink or have some food, so that the dog could crash out after long days walking... More

We had stayed at this hotel a few years ago and liked it very much; we had especially liked the restaurant which had old fashioned waiters who were very knowledgeable about the food and wines being offered. So, this was a big let down. The room we had was nice enough, although the toilet didn't flush properly, but the service... More

We stayed here for one night using an Amazon deal voucher. A lovely hotel with plenty of parking. The room was a good size with a really comfy bed. Breakfast was great with an extensive menu & choice. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Ideal location- just a short stroll into town. Would def stay here again if... More

We are so pleased we booked Abbots Barton Hotel for a wedding stay. The wedding reception wasn't held at the hotel, but a group of us on the grooms side stayed at Abbots Barton. From the outset dealing with reservations (Joanne Woodward in particular) was handled so thoughtfully and thoroughly to get it right. All staff we came into contact... More

Having just spend 3 very enjoyable nights at this hotel, I'm somewhat puzzled by the low ratings offered by some of the reviewers. Admittedly we had no problems with noise ( despite our room being over the restaurant ) but noise can be a problem in any hotel at any time. Our room was spacious, clean, warm, comfortable and well... More

Went in February when it was wet and cold - a warm welcome awaited and we were quickly settled in - it did take a while to actually find the room as there were several turning and twisty corridors to negotiate, not very well signed. However, the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were good but you had to time... More

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you had an enjoyable Winter stay, we like to think that our cosy lounge, bar and bedrooms give our guest that fuzzy warm feeling. It is quite different in the warmer months with the gardens and patio to walk around, to be able to sit out and relax in the peace and... More

A friend and I enjoyed a break at this hotel. The staff were very friendly, especially in the dining room. The bedroom was quite small, a twin, and the shower room was compact too, but it was fine for a two night stay. The beds were comfortable and the food delicious with quite a good choice.
