It wasn't the first time we have stayed at The Abbey, just never wrote a review of it. But I have to say that although we enjoyed our previous stays, this one was the best! Before we had a rear bedroom which was fine but just a courtyard view. This time my wife specified an upper front room, so that we overlooked the square and river. It turned out to be a third floor room, a lift is available. The bed was really comfortable, an extra king-size it seemed. A nicely laid out room and shower room, Sky TV, free wi-fi and tea and coffee making facilities which were in a convenient position to use. So many are tucked away and awkward to use put anything down! The large windows did indeed overlook the square and river. It was a lovely vista to look at in the morning. The breakfast choice and quality is excellent, with polite service even when we arrived a bit close to finish time. In fact all the hotel staff are very helpful and polite. Another area where a lot of hotels fail. The Abbey is close to the lovely main town shops and restaurants with Sally Lunn's Tea Shop about 100 yards away. The river, bridge and gardens are easily accessible. Downside? You have to add currently, £12 a day for parking in the 24 hour open car park just round the corner. But we will certainly stay at The Abbey on our next trip to Bath!
