Coombe Abbey Hotel
Travel Blogs from Coventry
Within 2.5 hours we had reached Coventry from London and were driving down a long tree lined path in the middle of a huge parkland. It was to say the least impressive as we got closer to Coombe Abbey Hotel which was originally a 12th Century Cistercian Abbey. They have done a great job in the restoration and you are soon transported back in …
... This is my favorite style of garden. Around every corner is a pleasant surprise, the views are breathtaking and it just makes you want to smile to walk through it. I took and kept around 100 pictures not to mention the ones I deleted. I just couldn't get enough. We spent hours there and it was still hard to leave. Later in the day we took a short 3 mile loop walk to the Escarpment above Chipping ...
Travelled from Edinburgh to Warwick. Visited Warwick Castle and Ann Hathaways birthplace. Ann Hathaway was the wife of William Shakespeare. She was 10 years older than him. Stayed at the Hilton hotel and had our farewell dinner. I ended up with laringytis and ...

Chipping Campden is a perfect place for us. It has everything we like. Grocery, baker, butcher, green grocer, plenty of pubs and restaurants, ...

Ron and I took a pleasant walk along lanes and past quaint cottages to Anne Hathaway's thatched cottage and garden - Anne was Shakespeare's wife and the Hathaway's lived in the cottage for 13 generations. A very well preserved and maintained building with great examples of 14th and 15th century furniture, including the bed Anne slept in when she lived ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Coombe Abbey Hotel Coventry
This hotel should be a tourist attraction in its own right!
Magnificant looking hotel
My boyfriend took me here for a romantic weekend and romantic it was. We got a room with a four poster bed which was very cool. The bathroom was all in the theme. We were expecting a roll top bath and were originally disapointed with our bath, but it must have been the deepest bath ever.
We ate in the Cloisters restaurant the food was delish, although one quibble. although the serving staff were very attentive it took ages for the waiter to come to us originally, even to ask about drinks (which is their loss as we may have drank more!).
The grounds were beautiful and we had a look round. There were weddings aplenty, even on the Sunday!! would go back again.
This place is amazing - I cannot say enough good things about it!
It's a maginifcent building set in beautiful grounds. The rooms are quirky - so different from any place we've stayed before. Our room looked out on to the courtyard and moat - it had a sumptuous four poster bed and the bathroom was hidden - you had to 'walk through a bookcase' to get to it! Fantastic! The staff and service were spot on and I highly recommend that you visit this hotel even if you don't intend to stay there.
I've travelled to a lot of places and stayed in a lot of nice hotels - but this one offers everything a hotel of this standard should and many added extras to go with it.
Go visit and enjoy!
Unlike any other hotel - great!
We stayed here for a romantic break and we were not disappointed. We were given a feature room which was immaculately decorated and opened out onto a small garden area. We had champagne, chocolates and flowers in our room which made it! We had a 3 course meal included in the price. The meal was in the Cloisters restaurant and was out of this world. It felt like we were dining in Buckingham Palace and the waiters were very attentive. The food was cooked to perfection and we could not fault it. We ate 'til we burst because it was all so tasty. The food, service and room were of 5* quality but I was expecting to see a ghost or two but didn't.
If you like character and beautiful settings, this is the place to go. Don't forget to explore the grounds.
Beautiful Hotel - great for a romantic break
My husband booked a package (room and dinner) at Coombe Abbey as a surprise for my birthday. We had one of the feature rooms which was definitely worth it! It makes a real change to the bog standard boring hotel. It felt really special, dinner was lovely and the staff were polite and attentive. There are lots of weddings at Coombe Abbey (two when we were there) and often the guests stay over, hence eating breakfast in the restaurant the next morning was a bit frantic and cramped. Given that we have paid a similar price for one night (without dinner) in a below average 5 star hotel in London, I would definitely recommend Coombe Abbey for a romantic weekend away!
A little disappointed
After reading all the reviews I was really excited about this place, and it is gorgeous. The staff were very nice and the public areas were very impressive - probably worth a visit even if you're not staying!
Having said that, though, our room was tiny - we actually couldn't walk round the bed without falling over something! The breakfast was average and we had to phone twice with a reminder for room service.
I think I was so disappointed because I'd expected such great things from it, and I have to say, I probably wouldn't stay here again.
We stayed for one night at Coombe Abbey for my Fiancé's 30th Birthday. From the moment we walked into the reception area there was a distinct feeling about this wonderful romantic hotel. I managed to book the well sought after Feature Bookcase room which was fantastic, large room with all amenities, a beautiful four poster bed and a well hidden secret themed bathroom which resides behind a bookcase! We had a nice meal at the Cloisters restaurant where we privately dined on our own private platform above the rest of the restaurant. The staff at Coombe Abbey are very friendly and will do everything they can to make your stay even more comfortable and memorable. The only thing I could possibly give a negative review about is the continental breakfast which was average but edible. A walk in the Coombe Abbey Country Park is also a must, beautiful gardens are well kept and a pleasure to walk around. We really enjoyed our stay here and we highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about staying here.
I love this place!
Coombe Abbey is a gorgeous hotel.
I've just returned from celebrating our wedding anniversary there, and it was lovely. We also held our wedding at Coombe Abbey 2 years ago and it was a day to remember.
The rooms are beautiful, the food is great, and the building is amazing.
If you want to celebrate a special occasion at a venue that is romantic and distinctive try here.
Coombe Abbey exceeded all our expectations. We were there for a business conference, and the staff took such great care of us. The meeting rooms and the accomodations in the hotel for guests are beter than most. The grounds are extensive and well cared for. The food at dinner was great. Breakfast was just average. But the best part of this place is the tour you get with all the history you could wish for, by someone who clearly loves their job. The only negative was the staff had a difficult time giving directions to other sights. All in all, this was a terrific place to stay.
Our party of 7 friends and family have just spent a weekend at this hotel to celebrate special birthdays. As soon as you enter the doors you know that it is going to be an experience. The staff are in costume, which helps to carry the theme of the hotel. They are extremely courteous and helpful. The rooms are fabulous, whether they be the 'Crown Doubles' or 'Feature Rooms'.
We took part in the 'Medieaval Banquet', which was an evening of good food, and hilarious entertainment.
It was excellent. We are now considering one of the 'Murder Mystery' weekends.
