4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for two, and what a nice hotel this is. Breakfast was great (smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.....mmmm). Beds very comfortable, the whole hotel was immaculate and clean. (Management you should pay housekeeping more!). If I had to find a fault I could hear the neighbours in the next room at night! Lol.

Our daughter Alexandra's marriage to Mathew Edmundson was held at Abbey House on Sunday 7th June 2015.

Abbey House is a stunning building inside and out designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens one... More

Wow! My daughter chose this hotel for her weeding and whilst I was initially disappointed as I wanted her to have a church wedding, I soon changed my mind.
