Nice room in a quirky and beautiful old building.

Everyone staying was offered only continental breakfast...but it was very basic, just toast, croissants, cereal and yoghurt. There was no fresh fruit, meats or cheeses as I would expect. We would have preferred an option of a cooked breakfast but no one was offered this, despite the smells from the kitchen suggesting that they could offer this. Dinner was pricey and of average standard. The village was quaint and the staff were genuinely lovely and friendly and created a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Abbot's Fireside

We stayed here the night before taking the channel tunnel.

The hotel has fantastic character and history. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Something Special

If, you have to stay in hotels on a regular basis(once/twice weekly) like me, what appeals when with family is character.

Abbots Fireside is full of that and more. Plus if you are taking a channel crossing it is the perfect place to sojourn on the night before.

Old World Charm

A beautiful building dating from the 1600s, set back on a quiet road through an old village.

Would certainly appeal to overseas visitors. Staff VERY friendly and helpful.
