We travelled here for a birthday bash and what a place.... Really old and historic.. Lovely grounds, lovely staff and wonderful place.... food was fantastic. The only complaint is that there isn't really a decent size bar with nice comfy seats to sit and enjoy their lovely atmosphere and that does let it down.. We did the medievial night which again was fantastic. The actors who put this on are just "Exceptional".... They really made the night a memorable one and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.... Will definitely stay again ........................

My new husband and I had our wedding at Coombe Abbey earlier this month and felt we had to make the time to share our experience on here!
From the initial planning meeting right through to check out the service we and our guests received was incredible. Our coordinator Katie Dawson was amazing, always friendly and helpful and supported us in creating a truly magical day.
Coombe Abbey is an amazing venue, full of character and delivers great service, and surprisingly came in cheaper than a lot of other wedding venues in the midlands area!
The staff took great care of all our guests, the day ran smoothly with great food, flowing drinks and a wonderful toastmaster, John, ensuring everything was as we wanted.
Our bridal suite, the Lady craven suite was truly out of this world. The photos on the website just can't demonstrate the true grandness of the room and the views are breathtaking. We just hope we can find a night where it isn't booked out for a wedding so we can stay there again!
All our guests commented on how amazing the venue, staff and general running of the day was and we were blown away, so a massive thank you to Katie, John and all the staff at Coombe for creating our fairytale day...
From: The McDonalds. :)

Previously visited the hotel and have enjoyed my visit , which is why I decided to take a 5 of my close friends to enjoy the afternoon experience ! Well.... When we arrived, the girls went and found somewhere to sit , and I went to check in and arrange a bottle of bubbles! I was ignored for about five minutes before the staff could pull them selves away from ordering their stock! We had our bubbles and decided to go through to our table that we had booked at 2.30 And stood their at 2.25 , We congregated around the door into the conservatory to be told we could sit at our table but we would NOT be able to order our food until 2.30! Like chastised children we agreed and sat like good girls till 2.30.! How petty can you get and I felt so embarrassed in front of all my friends! It wasn't even busy! When we went to settle the bill we were told off because three of the party wanted to pay by card!! It took her 15inutes to pay bill how difficult is that ? ! All the way through the afternoon tea we had to try and attract their attention to get more tea ? Four very lean sandwiches and with very little filling and cakes that I can cook at home nothing out the ordinary! Think I,ll shop around and find staff that don't mind you being there next time?

Stayed here many times and always enjoyed the4 experience. But this weekend we booked 2 rooms for my daughter and her fiancé 30th birthday celebrations. On arriving staff was friendly. Our rooms were not ready but the receptionist manage to find us 2 rooms.
104 this was our room. Very nice clean, dark but this is Coombe Abbey.... till we went to bed.. the bed was 2 mattresses pushed together. One was higher than the other and all night we rolled into the middle where the mattress was moving apart. The pillows were so bad... terrible night sleep.

111 this was our daughters room .... very run down... walls and radiator was scuffed needed a lick of paint. Again they had the same trouble with the bed. 2 mattresses pushed together terrible nights sleep. Shame as we have always praised this hotel to all our family and friends.

Lunch was okay but nothing to shout about. Evening meal / service was excellent. Breakfast again was excellent.

I think this hotel is looking very tired!

Room Tip: Don't accept room 104 or 111

Ron T, General Manager at Coombe Abbey Hotel, responded to this review, May 3, 2013
Good afternoon and many thanks for taking the time to write such a constructive review, following your recent stay here at Coombe Abbey.
I was delighted to hear that you had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner and will of course pass on your comments, to the team hear at the hotel.
However, with regard to your comments, concerning the two bedrooms that were allocated to both yourself & your daughter for your stay, I would like to convey my personal apologies for the issues experienced and as a gesture of goodwill, I have refunded the cost of both rooms in full. This transaction will show on your next credit card statement.
I sincerely hope that this particular experience, will not prevent you from returning to Coombe Abbey again at some point in the future.

Kindest regards

Ron Terry

Went with friends to a great evening at Coombes Medieval Banquet. A brilliant night, good food, great entertainment, good mead and wine. Beautiful room where banquets are held.
One of our party is a coeliac, she was really pleased with her gluten free meal.
Disco after the banquet for those who wish to stay later
A great night out

Just been to Coombe for an afternoon tea with some friends. We had a lovely afternoon. The food itself was well presented, fresh and there was more than enough to fill us up. We had two pots of tea and the service was really good and the staff extremely pleasant. We did not feel rushed and were left to sit for as long as we liked even though it was busy. We were served in a lovely glass conservatory with comfortable seating and plenty of space between tables. One of my friends had a glass of Pimms which only cost £5 and was full of fresh fruit. Excellent value for money. Ok it's not quite Tea at the Ritz but a lovely afternoon out. Well done Coombe Abbey.

Top class hotel in fantastic surrounding, made my 3 weeks stay here, a very pleasant one!!! . The rooms are as relaxing and comfortable as home. The food is of a very high standard, breakfast is not for the faint hearted, and the restaurant is a food lover's dream . A big thank you to all the staff for a warm and friendly welcome. Will return to stay here again when working in the area. Thanks again.
