Although the Abbey Hotel’s roots as a hotel date back to 1890, it is thoroughly modern and provides its guests with contemporary comforts and luxury along with outstanding service.
Villa at Henrietta Park
Housed in an unassuming Victorian mansion built in 1868, Villa at Henrietta Park strives to make guests feel truly welcome during their stay. Special touches like tea and cakes in the garden, an honesty bar, and made-to-order breakfast help to make it feel like you are relaxing at home, and its peaceful but central location makes it ideally situated for exploring the area.
The home-like feel continues throughout the hotel into the bedrooms, each of which are uniquely inspired, and offer views of either the hotel’s gardens or the sprawling park across the way. For dinner, guests can make their way to the Allium at the hotel’s sister property, just a five-minute walk down the road.

The Villa at Henrietta Park is located directly across the street from the park for which it is named, Henrietta Park, built in celebration of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee.
