Booked a room for family members during a special birthday and needed some 'extra' attention to ensure all went well. The staff could not have been more helpful, arranging a lovely room, some champagne and some other goodies. We met in the busy buzzy bar restaurant for some supper and enjoyed fresh local lobster - which was served with a... More

Arranged a surprise birthday party here for 39 people. The hotel staff were helpful in the planning and superb on the day itself. The buffet meal was truly magnificent with a great selection of hot and cold foods to suit all tastes. The whole salmon served under cucumber and pansy flowers was beautiful. As for the desserts, they were a... More

Bedrooms are clean and basic. No shower caps, tissues and a poor hair dryer. We did get a dressing gown and slippers which we never used or wished. No lift so a heave with suitcases up the stairs. Bedroom and bathroom very chilly with little heat coming from radiators. Breakfast had a good choice of dishes but cooked dish took... More

Stopped off on a cycling trip with 13 cyclists who were soaking wet. Staff went that extra mile to help us thaw and dry out with good grace and a sense of humour. Very much appreciated. Great food, reasonably priced considering the location.

I ended up at the Nether Abbey Hotel by total chance as a nearby hotel had overbooked me, so moved me to this hotel. Three things that gave me a great first impression… 1. When I realised the room rate was for 2 people instead of 1 (as just me staying), they immediately reduced the price by £30. There are... More

North Berwick is one of our favourite places to stay and our weekend at the Nether Abbey was excellent. Lovely clean room comfortable bed and spotless bathroom, these are all the basics we look for in any hotel. However, it's the staff and the very friendly personalised service that makes this hotel stand out. I mentioned it was a significant... More

Great food & company. But very disappointing service this time.There was a long wait between finishing our main meal & getting table cleared. When our desserts came we waited 10min for two hot milks for the coffee by which time the coffee needed the hot milk for a re heat. The hot milk and extra Carmel sauce had been forgotten... More

Having read the place to avoid review i can only assume that this person is very rarely satisfied! We arrived on Thursday morning of our 3 night stay with my wife, two children and our dog at 11.30am after a five hour drive, on arrival we were immediately made welcome and apologised to that our rooms were in the process...

If this was a review for the dinner we enjoyed in the Nether Abbey, then it would have five stars. We enjoyed fresh seafood (the administrator watched as the lobster component of our shared "Fruits de mer" being taken live from a tank in the bar on its last excursion). If the review was for the bar where we were... More

The Fly Half bar was one of the nicest bars we saw in North Brewick. The staff was very friendly and chatty, especially Olivia. We got there on a really quiet night and they had stopped serving food around 8 or just after so didn't get to eat, but by all accounts the weekend nights are buzzing. Way better alternative...
