Situated right at the heart of the town with shops all around. The restaurant was excellent and the food superb. The bar staff were attentive and the live music was good (and not too loud). The only problem with the hotel (and it's a small one) is that it does not have it's own car park. You have to use... More

My husband and I stayed here for my birthday last weekend. We left after 1 night as we were so unhappy with almost every aspect of the hotel. Firstly, the car park was a long distance away and we had trek with our baggage uphill in the rain. When we arrived we could barely get into reception with the amount... More

Our first visit to the Abbey Hotel will most certainly not be our last! We had a fantastic 'Dancing for Pleasure' break, with ballroom dance classes each day. Have patience checking in, as everyone seems to arrive together! You can double-park outside to unload your luggage and get your parking token from the hotel-(remember to change it each day.) The...

Stayed 2 nights in The Abbey hotel. Although the hotel was very busy with a few hen parties booked in we were given a nice room on third floor overlooking the river. It was very quiet. Room was spotless and had all facilities necessary for a relaxing weekend. We also had an evening meal included and food was fantastic. Would... More

After staying at the abbey hotel last May (2014) a complaint was made therefore resulting in a complimentry stay in which we decided to take. For a couple who have once already had to complain you would think an effort would be made but no. The room was almost in the same place in the area we specifically complained about... More

Unfortunately Ryan air cancelled our outbound flight which meant we could only stay 1 night at the Abbey. Which was our loss as we loved this hotel, the dinner was so well presented and tasty and at 20 euros for 2 courses great value. Breakfast the next morning was plentiful All the staff were very good and attentive Only thing... More

Nice enough place. We had a room overlooking the busy diamond, and it was only noisy in the mornings. Wasn't an issue at night. The room was huge. Drawbacks are no tea service. It was a very busy hotel one night we were there and the self serve breakfast was a whole other affair than the more moderately busy night.... More
