“Lovely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Stayed the night after a wedding in the hotel.
The room was large with lovely bath shower although no hot water.
Large 4 poster bed really comfy.
Lovely buffet breakfast sausage bacon egg beans mushrooms.
Friendly staff on booking inn.
Not the cheapest worth a stay.
It is a lovely quirky place.
Nothing else really to do there as set out on its own a bit.
Lovely walks around though in gorgeous grounds.

We returned after a ten year break!! The place was excellent. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. A mix up over our room was dealt with personally by Anthony (Manager) and he offered us complimentary drinks at the bar as recompense. A forgotten coffee and tea order(they were extremely busy) was offered to us free of charge due to the mistake. The staff are professional, helpful and at the same time unobstrusive. The evening meal in the conservatory was excellent - with the exception of the game terrine which I found to be tasteless. Wines are reasonably priced - recommend the organic Malbec at £23.50 - lovely!
Breakfast again was excellent with food in plentiful supply!
Room 128 was excellent with wide window overlooking entrance to hotel and parkland.
Definitely returning!!
Top tip - settle down into one of the chairs in the reception area,order some drinks and wile away a couple of hours people watching!!!!
Hurrah for Coombe Abbey and all who serve in her!!!

Stayed at Coombe Abbey for one night (wished it could have been more)!!! will certainly go back. Can't fault anything the staff we friendly helpful and professional. Our room was spotless and full of character the four poster bed was very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant the food was superb and the service was impeccable. The breakfast was excellent with a wonderful array of fresh fruit, croissants, cheese and full English (didnt eat for the rest of the day)!! I have stayed in many hotels in many countries of the years and I can honestly say this is the best.

Would not advice going here for lunch unless you want a "three" course meal. The service is very bad if you only want a bar meal. It took over 2 hrs to get a sandwich, or should I say four sandwiches, maybe they couldn't handle all four sandwiches, we have been here several times before and thought it may have been a one off, but the service seems to be their regular performance. Hence this comment

Arrived Monday evening after a long drive and had such a warm friendly welcome from the receptionist. I then stayed at Coombe Abbey for 2 nights as was attending a work meeting.

The guy who looked after us in our meeting room was so helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

I love this hotel, as it's so full of character and beats the busy soul less hotels I sometimes stay at. The food was delicious and the service in the restaurant was good.

Please note that this is a review of our Afternoon Tea Experience.

Having heard about the venue from friends, we stopped at Coombe Abbey Hotel for Afternoon Tea. The grounds and driveway to the hotel is impressive and parking was not an issue. I really liked the entrance to the hotel (a blend of medieval and Victorian?) it may be a little too dark for some, but I found it really interesting.

When in the main Lobby area, I asked a member of staff where afternoon tea is served - explaining that I had made a reservation - and was impressed that the member of staff actually escorted us to the Garden Room Restaurant rather than just point us in the right direction. I was concerned that we were approximately half an hour late and that they were due to stop serving shortly, but was assured that this was not a problem.

We were shown to a delightful table set in a wicker booth which was nice and quiet and given the menu. We decided to order the full tea which included tea / coffee (refilled as needed) and a 3 tier plate with home baked scones, cakes, sweets and a selection of sandwiches.

Our waitress was friendly and extremely attentive and offered to bring more sandwiches - offer accepted, but proved to be too much to manage after eating everything else!

There was a good atmosphere and the other customers appeared to be having a good time - a group of them were purchasing gift vouchers which offered a saving on the advertised price. (Not sure if they're still available, but worth a call to find out)

Towards the end of our tea, staff were setting up the tables in the restaurant for the evening service, but we were assured there was no rush and encouraged to take our time.

I would very much liked to have stayed at the hotel and will hopefully be able to stay when time permits, but I will definitely call in for tea if I know I am going to be in the area again.

All in all, a lovely experience.
