We stayed for one night in March on our way home to Liverpool from Dorset. We noticed that the hotel offers a special price on Sunday nights and decided it was worth breaking our journey to take advantage of this offer. We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted by the wonderful manageress who was so enthusiastic about the hotel and... More

We stayed for two nights at the hop pole, 17-19th april whilst we attended a friends wedding at the abbey. On arrival it wasn't clear that parking was free for guests with signage saying it was pay and display, maximum stay 3 hours. Ignote this and collect a parking permit from reception, free for the entire stay! We was originally... More

We have stayed here on several occasions but this time in room 208! The hotel staff and service is first class and would stay again but not in this room. On checkout I suggested that perhaps the manager should try and spend. In this noisy room. I understand that the fan noise is from an adjacent building but we also... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 day break in Tewksbury .We were very impressed with the hotel and when asked if we could have a quiet room we were offered room 201 which was lovely with views overlooking The Ham.We will certainly return as it is good to be welcomed by such warm and friendly staff.

We have just spent 2 nights in the hotel. The room had a nice view of the Abbey but our room (117) was basic, dark, small but clean (the Tudor wing). Worse still, the adjacent corridor had very noisy floorboards, it felt like everyone was walking through our room! The shower/washing gels were empty on arrival, however the staff immediately...

Some guests prefer to stay in this section of the hotel as it overlooks the garden, but if you would prefer a bigger room... More

Only used the venue for food and drink!! This Weatherspoons team is focused and competant. The food here on our four visits was delivered to our table quickly by polite and friendly staff on every occasion during our stay in the town.

I booked the last room, 106, which was for a family of four and as there were only two of us the room was wonderfully big (I paid an extra £5 for this which on reflection was good value for money). Lots of towels, hanging space, complimentary tea and coffee, two arm chairs plus ordinary, everyday chairs. We chose the... More

Staying close by, we have eaten a few meals here. The service has been good, food fine and surroundings pleasant. Lots of history in the building as well. It can get a bit busy for a table but we managed every night. If you are in need of a reliable hostelry then I would recommend this pub.
