We decided to come back to the Hotel for our Tenth wedding anniversary, was nice to see that the hotel had kept the same features from then, although the evening stay comparing the room and prices with other hotels in the area was very over priced.
The card and chocolate was a nice gesture, and the food in the restaurant was very nice, again a little overpriced if you didn't go for the set menu.
We booked a double deluxe room which the cleanliness was not impressive at all, dead flies on the bathroom windowsill and a resident spider on the TV, one of the lights on the bedside was not working (a general check when cleaning to see, as these are generally only used when you're getting into bed) the TV was a little temperamental and kept switching itself off, and the towel rail is only switched on in the winter to dry your towels
Breakfast was nicely laid out so you could help yourself to what you wanted and the coffee and tea was topped up as and when required.
In the morning we approached the manager about an offer we had seen advertised in the ladies toilet about a romantic stay, which was exactly the same as what we had paid for but at a lot lower rate,at this point I felt she was a little confrontational, we had a very small amount taken off our bill but after spending over £300 for a nights stay, we just settled the bill and left very disappointed.
We won't be returning the the Abbots Barton as after a recent stay in another hotel in the close area for the same money was a lot more enjoyable
