My partner won the Facebook competition so we thought we'd go along for a little treat. The food was really nice, staff were exceptional and then we got the bill... I expected to pay for drinks, that would be reasonable. I was handed a bill for £19 and it turns out only one meal is free, which I feel is... More

We attended the Abbotsford Hotel Restaurant as part of a group for a birthday celebration. The service was quick and efficient. However, some of the food wasn't that great. Mainly the 3 people who ordered macaroni cheese were disappointed in the taste. I have been for dinner before at this restaurant and had macaroni previously, which tasted great. However the... More

Would recommend this for family or friends gathering. If anything the only drawback is the entrance - travelling north on A82 the... More

I've never had a bad meal here and would recommend the enchiladas. The staff are very friendly. The only thing that annoys me about this place is the location. It's not a walking distance to other local pubs if your venturing out after your meal in heels. You need to get a taxi.

A great family run hotel,all the staff from the managers down are wonderful, very helpful and courteous. They are all willing to go that extra bit to make you visit very pleasant, whether it for a meal or just a couple of drinks. They all have a very high standard of customer care. The decor and seating is very comfortable... More

It's all very basic. Clean, neat and tidy but nothing very exciting, a bit like a large travel lodge, keep expecting to see Alan partridge walking in. But if all you want is a good nights sleep and simple food that's what you will get. One strong point the guy who runs the place james is very good.

So disappointed every time we go. Food bland and warm. Complained but food still not up to scratch. Shame as it has potential to be good

Went here for lunch with the family, didn't book a table and the restaurant was full so we were offered a booth in the bar. Glad we took it as it was just as nice and it was the same food, and once again excellent quality, large portions and great service. Would definitely recommend. Just watch when leaving the car...
