Wonderful Wedding Venue
By Kim, on 15 Oct 2013
The Abbey was the venue for my Son and Daughter in Law's recent wedding. From the early planning stage to the actual day, the staff, especially wedding co-ordinator Kay Liiley, could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they dealt with last minute changes with a smile. The food at the reception was excellent. It was served quickly and was hot and plentiful. Many guests stayed at least one night and the only complaints I heard of were bumped heads on the low ceilings in some rooms and limited breakfast for latecomers, but these were minor issues. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel as a wedding venue. Well done to all involved in Steve and Kat's wedding.

A Fabulous Wedding and a Day to Remember
By John, on 10 Sep 2013
We celebrated our wedding at the Abbey Hotel on 22nd June 2013 and can honestly say that it was the best day of our lives. Many of our guests have also commented that it was the best wedding that they had been to, and how much they thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.
The food was excellent, both in quality and quantity, the accommodation and facilities were first class and the grounds were beautiful. We stayed in the ‘Studley’ Suite which was amazing with a fabulous view from the balcony.
From our first visit, back in 2012 when we chose the venue, the service was always superb. The reception staff were friendly and extremely helpful and Kay Lilley, our wedding co-ordinator, was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for her and everything was well organised and of the highest standard. We used several of the people she recommended for other services such as photographer, hair and make-up, venue dressing, chair covers, sashes etc. and were highly delighted with the results.
Our dedicated operations manager on the day of our wedding, ‘Locky’ was absolutely fantastic. We could not have wished for anyone better, he made our day, everything was perfect, he guided us gently, but firmly, through every step of the way. Most of our guests commented on how professional he was, ensuring that nothing was left to chance and even now, two months after the wedding, they are still talking about him. Every wedding should have a ‘Locky’.
We had more than 50 guests staying over night and the friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere made the whole weekend a thoroughly enjoyable experience for everyone. Well done to all concerned at the ‘Abbey’. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Abbey Hotel as one of the best wedding venues to any prospective couples.

We had our wedding at the Hotel on the 25/08/2013 friends and family arrived from as far as Dubai on the Saturday. One of the guests staying in one of the balcony rooms so on the Saturday organised a bridal shower for myself. The hotel provided glasses and were extremely accommodating. For our wedding breakfast we decided on a melon starter and the fork buffet it was presented beautifully. We had 113 guest and many guests went up a second time to re fill their plates. There was still plenty for everyone, the quiche was homemade and very delicious. Once again the staff could do enough I have a three year old niece who has a passion for olives. I had asked the hotel if they could provide her with some and they promptly did so. The evening buffet we had decided on a curry table which again was delicious and plentiful. We upgraded to the Penthouse Suite which with bridesmaids was fabulous for us all getting ready Sunday morning. My only complaint is that we didn't want to leave. A big thank you to Kay the hotels wedding planner for at times I was like Bridezilla! All our guests had a most memorable time and want to return next year for our 1st Anniversary Party!
I have only given a average mark for breakfast as there was no fried bread or smoked bacon but that's just a personal preference. Otherwise it was excellent!
Mr daughters wedding

We attended my daughter's wedding here on the 1st June 2013. I can honestly say we had the most perfect day and all of the staff involved were absolutely fantastic. The wedding co-ordinator Kay was brilliant all the way through, nothing was ever too much trouble. Right from the arrival when we had Pimms and canapés, then the most delicious meal and evening buffet, through to breakfast the next day, everything was delicious and we were so well looked after. The gardens were also the perfect back drop for photographs.
We stayed in the Malvern Suite overnight, the room is large, very nicely decorated and the bed was so comfortable.
For any prospective bride and groom I would definitely recommend you visit the Abbey and consider if for your 'Big Day', you won't be disappointed.
A truly amazing weekend
By Claire, on 17 Jun 2013
I have never wrote a hotel review before but felt I really needed to about the service we received at the abbey. We got married at the hotel on 8th June 2013. The wedding service we received from kay Lilly and her team on the day was first rate. We used all the outside services the hotel recommended as they were such good value for money. We could not of asked for any better. The team at the abbey truly made our day relaxed and perfect. The staff provided such a personal service right down to the reception staff knowing our names. The staff on the day lead by locky worked so hard. The hotel is first rate and if you are thinking of getting married here you could not ask for a better day.
Fantastic Wedding Venue
By Paul, on 05 Mar 2013
We held our wedding reception at the Abbey Hotel in October 2012. From our first contact via email through to meetings with the wedding co-ordinator and the day itself we cannot praise The Abbey enough. The attention to detail was excellent, the staff courteous and helpful and the food was outstanding. Everything we asked for was possible and we have received many compliments from our guests. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the venue to anyone looking for a wedding reception. We certainly made the right choice.
Wedding at the Abbey Hotel
By Teri, on 18 Feb 2013
We had such an amazing day at the hotel, the wedding planners, Pam and Kay, were so helpful in the run up to our day. The actual day was amazing, all the staff hosting our wedding did everything prompltly and we didnt have to worry about a thing. There was alway someone one hand if we needed anything, even up to telling my bridesmaids and me when to walk down the isle. This all made us feel at ease and lessened any nerves that may have been floating about.
The rooms and wedding packages the hotel offer are very reasonable and fantastic.
The food and gereral service provided at The Abbey Hotel was amazing and they made our day feel very special.
would highly reccommend.

Excellent Wedding Experience
By Mattr82, on 21 Dec 2012
My wife and I recently held our wedding reception at this venue and from start to finish the level of service we received was second to none. The whole team made our day even better and the facilities on offer were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone whether it be for use of a hotel room or its other excellent facilities.

Wow what a year. Where has time gone – all the fantastic memories of Beth and Charlie’s lovely wedding day have come flooding back now we have almost reached December 10th one year on. We are just off to Club La Santa, Lanzarote, the theme of their wedding, where Beth and Charlie met and it has bought back all those fabulous memories. What a superb day it was. Everything went to plan - a day packed with surprises. The Abbey Hotel staff were fantastic – helped by Kay’s meticulous planning and Chris who compered the occasion and adjusted timings with finesse. Kay was so helpful with all the wedding preparation, an essential person and a joy to work with. Sarah was great setting up the tables in the venue and the disco was enjoyed by all. The Abbey staff made the day go so smoothly and catered for every need. The wedding breakfast and evening food was very good. We had so many lovely comments from our guests about how much they enjoyed themselves and the hotel facilities. To quote the bride and groom Beth and Charlie ‘It was the best day of our lives and lots of fun and nothing went wrong!’ Many thanks Abbey Hotel for a wonderful day last year.
We celebrated New Years Eve 2011 at the hotel in great style and are back again for this New Years Eve. Excellent value for money.
Very proud parents of the Bride - Chris and Denis
