“Very enjoyable stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We stayed 3 nights here and enjoyed it more every night. The history of Coombe Abbey is fascinating, and they've done a good job recreating the décor and atmosphere of the middle ages. Great location for exploring nearby sites.
The manager was super friendly and hands on, always available to assist and provide tips and suggestions about sites to see in the area. The food was very good and reasonably priced.
The only slight negative is the rooms in the original building are small, dark, tiny windows (making it hot w/out AC) and overall need some updating. We asked to be moved and ended up staying in the new building, which has air conditioning and larger rooms and was very comfortable.
Overall, this is a good value for the money compared to other places we stayed, staff was exceptionally friendly and the history of the Abbey is rich and interesting.

Historic, four posters, beautiful setting. We had a wonderful stay at this hotel, surrounded by a moat with so much history inside and out well worth a visit went to a themed murder evening and had a lot of fun with good food.

Stayed 2 nights over a weekend at the end of April for my niece's wedding. We had a most enjoyable stay and the wedding was just perfect. Our room, in the old part of the building, was lovely, although we would rather not have had two single beds pushed together, which disrupted our sleep a little. However everything in the hotel seemed to run like clockwork, including easy check-in/out, friendly, helpful staff, and a well organised breakfast. We were sorry to have to leave. In a nutshell, Coombe is very atmospheric, certainly has the wow factor, and is more than just a little bit special!

Superb afternoon tea, plenty of sandwiches, tea, scones and cakes!
We had not booked, but the very helpful restaurant manager found us a table in the bar area as they were fully booked.
The Rocky Road was heavenly!
Thank you!

Stayed for one night, definitely will go again. Without a doubt it has the wow factor. Only down side for us was walking from the annex to the main building as it was a chilly evening and I was wearing a summer dress. If I had known about this I would have ask to have a room in the main hotel. All the staff were great the food was good and the grounds are amazing.
