Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. As we had a car, the location, slightly out of the city centre, with easy parking, was ideal. Ok, had to take the car,...

The abbey manor was a beautiful experience! The bedding was comfortable, the food was excellent, the staff was very courteous and the rooms were always cleaned in the morning and the sheets were turned down at night.
