My husband and I stayed last weekend. To be fair, the hotel has warned us that a function was taking place by e mail during the week. Our room was in the part of the hotel not yet refurbished actually over the function suite. Whilst being old fashioned the room was clean with good quality towels and linens. WhatI do... More

After visiting Abbey House in January, me and my boyfriend booked a stay again from Friday 6th - Sunday 8th March. Unlike last time we were booked into a deluxe double room, however on arrival we found that we had been upgraded to a suite, this was a very pleasant surprise. When we entered the room we were taken back... More

I chose the hotel because there was a good deal going on wowcher. Oh boy was that a good decision. Fabulous place, superb room, excellent food, pleasant staff. This is in the Lake District so a fabulous location. When you are there do not forget to visit the South Lakes Zoo. With or without kids this is a great place... More

The hotel is situated 10 minutes drive from the centre of Barrow - which is a significant asset. It lies above (but doesn't actually overlook) a very impressive, albeit ruined, abbey which is well worth a walk down a small hill to view. The hotel itself is picturesque with nice rooms. The hotel has largely converted its bar area into... More

Barrow-in-Furness may not be the type of town one would expect a nice hotel (sorry Barrow), but this place is a little piece of pleasure in a strange land. Built in 1914 for the Vickers (shipyard) family it's a 'period' style castle in appearance, and quiet good looking for the architectural types, but 4* hotel inside. It's got the all... More

What a lovely surprise, we were expecting faded elegance but were treated to opulent luxury. The building is amazing - Edward Lutyens designed - and the inside looked and felt as if it had received a recent re-fit, with plush carpets and furnishings and interesting light etc fittings. We were offered the Autumn Suite which was gorgeous - a quiet... More

We got married at The Abbey House Hotel in February and I cannot commend the hotel enough on the smooth running of our day. A special mention must go to Tanya who was fantastic throughout; nothing was too much trouble and she was in constant contact with us both when appropriate, ensuring things were running as we wished. Also to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this hotel after looking online at the best dog friendly places to stay around Windermere. We were warmly greeted by a lovely receptionist named Rosie and the building was very clean and inviting. Our room was lovely, the only issue was the bathroom towel rail which was rusty and unclean looking. Unfortunately there was... More

Myself and my other half spent the weekend at this lovely hotel a couple of weeks ago. It has been refurbished to a very high standard. We were placed in the annex adjoined to the hotel which had a lovely view. On arrival we were warned there was a wedding the following day but music would be finished by 12... More

As a treat for my wife and son, I booked an overnight stay at this hotel together with a reservation for the restaurant 'Oscars'. I am so glad that we picked this venue. Our short visit was excellent. The rooms provided to us were spacious, well furnished, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. 'Oscars' has a great feel to it and... More
