Historical Traveller Reviews of Coombe Abbey Hotel
Perfectfrom A TripAdvisor Member
When we had checked in (3 hours early but this was not a problem for them) we went for a walk in the public part of the grounds. The only thing to spoil this was that the information video in the visitor's centre did not work. We then returned to the Hotel for a few drinks sat outside the restaurant. This is a very 'English' place - you are surrounded by hanging baskets and bushes and the only sound apart from your conversation is birds twittering.
After one or two drinks we returned to our room to open our Champagne and watch Andy Murray at Wimbledon (our idea of heaven).
We were booked into the restaurant for 7pm and were served a wonderful mouth watering meal by a very (but not overly) attentive waiter.
Breakfast next morning was excellant. There was so much to choose from and everything was fresh.
I can honestly say that this is the second best hotel I have ever stayed in. My favourite was The Eden Rock Resort in the Art Deco region of Miami Beach so it had a lot to live up to.
I would definately return to Coombe Abbey and recommend it to anyone who enjoys the finer things in life.
Great Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The evening meal at the hotel was fantastic i would highly recommened eating here.
Also the breakfast we had delivered to the room in the morning was also fantastic.
i would defiantly stay at this hotel again, the staff were all very helpful and polite.

Absolutely amazing!!from nikkiespi
Coombe Abbey is the most beautiful place i have ever seen!
The service is second to none, employees here are kind courteous and go to the absolute extremes to please their guests!
My fiance proposed to me here, and had been scheming with the team here to make it perfect for me, which it was and then some!!
If you do come here make sure you have dinner & breakfast, the food is out of this world!! The dinner in particular!
I love it enough i am planning my wedding here now in 2008, cant imagine getting married anywhere else!
5 out of 5!!
thank you coombe abbey xx
Fantastic Stayfrom $
Afternoon drinks taken in the lovely conservatory.
Dinner in the restaurant was nice - the waiters were very good, being around just when you needed them.
It was a great place for a romantic occassion.
The only bad thing I could say was the resident cat was very grumpy!!!

Having arrived at reception (which was busy) we had to wait 15 minutes until someone was able to check us in this was interrupted 4 times by the receptionist answering the telephone, I asked if there was any chance as it was our WA if we could have a complimentary upgrade we were staying 2 nights on a DB&B. We were told yes and that 3 different rooms were available for us to take a look at and choose the one we liked the look of. We did and when we went back to the reception to pick up our new keys we were told that in fact the room wasn't complimentary and that we would need to pay an extra £200! After nearly an hour later being made to feel like a liar and a naughty child while the reception manager asked all the staff involved 'their side of the story' we were finally shown to one of the rooms we had looked at (big thing made that at 5pm on a friday they still anticipated selling that room at its premium price)
The room was huge but it definately needed a refurbishment and the number of 'hairs' on the bathroom floor and in the bed which weren't ours ran into double figures!
Dinner was OK the first night, but breakfast the following morning was a joke! Tables were left dirty and stacked high with used plates, the buffet hot food wasn't hot and we listened to the waiting staff moaning and complaining about another member of staff and working in the hotel!
Dinner the second night resulted in us having to ask to move tables as there was a terrible draught and everything including our 'used butter' was swapped and slammed onto our new table - just to ensure we were totally aware of the problem we were causing.
On top of this we also had to ask 3 times for our glasses to be topped up with our own wine - which we weren't allowed to have on our table (so we could do it ourself without the fuss!)
All in all we won't be wasting our money again on this hotel they are currently refurbsihing parts of the hotel but in our view they could do with also re-training all their staff in the basic principles of customer services.
As a UK resident there seems to be a general acceptance of low standards of service when compared with other (and often less expensive) worldwide destinations - a real shame that no one seems 'to care anymore!
Fantastic stay!from A TripAdvisor Member
Overall, I would definitely reccomend this hotel if you are visiting. It is unique and there is no other hotel like it. It is definitely worth what you pay for it. No complaints whatsoever!
Fantastic Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is really unique and the service was amazing, really attentive yet not too intrusive! The restaurant food was fairly expensive (£100 for a meal for two with wine) however it was lovely as it was a special occasion and the setting was great.
We will definatly be going back for a repeat visit in the very near future.
lovely place but ?from zzr600
