My wife and I planned a last minute trip to the coast and picked to stay at the Abbots Barton hotel. We were not disappointed. The room was clean and tidy and recently updated I would guess.

Thank you for your review. I am delighted to read that you found us to be much better than the 4 star you stayed at in London. Thank you mentioning my team and our breakfast offering. As you say we are currently undergoing major expansion, and any of the noise issues you mention are going to be addressed when our... More
