Spent the day and night at the Abbey Hotel. Could not fault the day. As a guest it was brilliant, the staff where so efficient the day flowed beautifully. The food was top notch and served promptly with great service. From start to finish it was a perfect venue that will be remembered full of happy memories. Spent a very comfortable (late!) night in one of the rooms,then off for a buffet style breakfast the following morning. Good choice of cold and traditional full English. Very nice.
We would not hesitate to recommend the Abbey Hotel.

Our Son and his wife held their wedding and reception at the Abbey on 1st August 2014, from the initial visit and booking of wedding to the actual ceremony, wedding breakfast, and the following morning the service was outstanding. Kay, James, Lockie and the team were dedicated to making sure the day went without a hitch, and were on hand throughout to ensure that everything ran smoothly, the waiters and waitresses, though young, we're extremely professional and polite. The day was everything that the Bride & Groom could have wished for, all of their guests commented on what a great time they had, thank you Kay and the team.
Dream Wedding Day
By Mr & Mrs Moore, on 10 Dec 2014
We had our wedding reception at this wonderful hotel in June this year. It was truly perfect. The staff at the Abbey were just amazing, from Kay our wedding planner (who was so lovely and answered every little question we had) through to the bar staff on the evening who were all just fantastic.
We have family and friends 3 months on from our wedding still commenting how gorgeous the food was, how friendly and attentive the staff were, how lovely the rooms were and how beautiful the course and grounds were. We genuinely couldn't recommend a a better venue to hold a wedding reception. We wish we could do it all over again!
We had the most incredible day and we truly cannot thank the Abbey Hotel, Golf & Spa enough for making it so perfect for us, our family and friends. Special mention to Kay, Zoe, Oliver and Ged. You were absolute stars. Mr & Mrs. Moore.
Best Day of our Lives
By Murdling, on 10 Dec 2014
We got married at this venue in August of this year and we could not have asked for more. Kaye, the wedding coordinator is amazingly organised, she's friendly and supportive and thinks of everything! She put us at ease straight away. From start to finish everyone helped make our day perfect from fussy guests food to accessible rooms for the grannies!
Marc, the leisure manager was able to advise on treatments for myself and bridesmaids to have the night before. All the leisure and beauty staff were friendly and fantastic.
My in laws valued to the help of Loki who helped them organise our surprise fireworks in the eve that also meant they had to post out to the local area for permission. We used their DJ who was great and the guests raved about the food. We're very grateful to them for making our day and our guests perfect, particularly Kaye.

My Wedding Day
By Alison, on 10 Dec 2014
Myself & my new husband fully enjoyed our Wedding Day back in October here. The food and service was excellent, they could not do enough for us and our Wedding party. Over 50 of our guests stayed over and all said how good the breakfast was with plenty of choice. And that their rooms were very spacious and clean. We are looking forward to staying here again for our 1st Wedding Anniversary next year.
The best day of our lives
By Mr and Mrs Turrell, on 26 Nov 2014
Absolutely perfect! I got married here on June 21st 2014.. The day couldn't have been more perfect, the staff were always on hand to help and guide me through the day. Everything I wanted or needed I got. Kay Lilley was always there on the run up to my wedding, emails were answered promptly and always very happy to have a chat about slight changes or any preferences. She truly was amazing and very helpful as were the rest of her team, I cant thank them enough. I am a very particular person and wanted things just so and the staff were amazing. The hotel grounds are stunning, there are lots of places to have your photos inside and out. The wedding breakfast and the buffet tasted beautiful, the chef is amazing. All my guests commented on the food and were very impressed with the service they received. Everything ran so smoothly. I would highly recommend this hotel for any special occasion.
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!
