We would have checked-out early and not stayed the night if it weren't for the fact that the hotel is very remote and finding any alternative would have been very difficult. The biggest issue was the sewer line. Every minute while using any water (brushing teeth, showering, etc) a large grinder pump located within the suite would turn on. The sound of it is best described as what it would sound like if all of the dark forces were emerging from the middle of the earth. Terrifying, frightening, and evil sounding. Considering that this was formerly an Abby, the evil connotations are magnified. The facility feels like it was remodeled by "I did it myself". The furnishings are spartan. Electric outlets are scarce. We like old buildings and old hotels, but this one was an experience we would not like to repeat.
The google maps instructions seemed scary. but thanks to our GPS we found it OK. We had enjoyed staying at former palaces in Paradores Nacionales in Spain, and we expected a similar experience but we let down: aristocracy lived better than monks! :) We only spent the night there and left early in the morning. The room was small but comfortable, and so was the bathroom. The building is austere, not at all luxurious. The breakfast buffet was not impressive. There was only one waitress. When we arrived she cleaned two spots at a table full of dirty dishes and left the rest of the mess as is. We had to ask for milk, salt and pepper, lacking at the buffet. There is no place near the hotel to have breakfast... At checking I was given a map of the town to let me know where I could park (at the public parking outside of the old town) since the normal parking was not available. On my long walk back I found 2 legal parking spots near the hotel! They should have told me: if you can't find a spot nearby, use the public parking...
Magnificent 17th century abbey building set in fine parkland. Quite unique really and great history. Worth a stay just for the ambience. Restaurant average and room facilities fell short a little. no daily renewals of soap or shampoos - without asking. Wifi out of action. Spa was average/good and a generous facility in view of price paid for the stay. Good location to explore the lovely coutryside and fine villages.
