No one offered the cocktails on arrival as quoted in our deal. Mistake still made when called to correct this. No information about the hotel site when checking in, I had to go back to ask for a floor plan. Staff didn’t seem very helpful or knowledgeable. Food at dinner including dessert was disappointing, couldn’t even eat the lamb served, and extremely over priced. Simple service was lacking. Breakfast was poor, sausages tasted as if they were reheated, hash brown was tough, terrible. Lights outside the building in the evening the night before where all switched off, so put us off having a walk around. Only the room itself was nice. Unfortunately, I won’t be recommending this hotel to anyone.

I can recommend the afternoon tea. Probably a bit expensive with the glass of champagne but we went on a 241 offer. Quality of afternoon tea for £24.50 though compared to other establishments we've tried is a fair price. Lovely place for a special occasion.

Lovely place to dine. Only grumble would be that I had 4 attempts at picking a bottle of wine before I picked one that was in stock and I found them to be rather expensive. Food lovely. Staff extremely attentive and helpful. Iliana was lovely.

We took my mum here for a champagne afternoon tea as a surprise for her 90th birthday. Everything about the experience was absolutely spot-on, food was delicious, beautifully presented, service was impeccable and staff could not have done more for us.

I've been several times for dinner & afternoon tea. When I came with a friend for afternoon tea in august, the staff were so attentive, had refills of hot drinks , food was lovely. This time the egg & cheese sandwiches had hardly any filling , didn't get one refills of hot drink & staff all disappeared at about 4.30 so had to look for someone to pay. Also I don't like that you add a service charge. I'd rather tip a member of staff if I've had good service not be made to with the bill.

We were surprised that so many noticeable details seem to have been overlooked. The brass arched lights over the tables throughout the refectory were very dusty & ours even had a cobweb. The afternoon tea looked appetising but the sandwiches were beginning to dry out. Other details also lacked the professionalism that we are used to in comparable local venues. Our experience was not bad but did not live up to our expectations.

Truly lovely afternoon , which my mother and I enjoyed very much. Fabulous hotel , such a beautiful location , attentive but not intrusive service and a delicious afternoon tea. I would highly recommend the Stanbrook abbey afternoon tea for an experience just that little bit different with that added touch of class.

Excellent champagne afternoon tea with my wife. Superb quality food and drink. Served by Joe who was friendly and attentive. An outstanding building, certainly the most memorable hotel in the Handpicked family that I have visited. A visit is highly recommended.

We have not been to this particular hotel before and I found it quite stark. Horrible reception area. The colours reminded me of a premier Inn. It was a let down. The service was very good. The starters were OK, but the roast potatoes were like bricks and the Yorkshire puddings were so dry and hard and no flavour. The beef however was lovely and plentiful. We have recently moved to Malvern and was hoping to use the hotel for dining sometimes, but unfortunately I was not enamoured and neither were our guests.

It’s rare to receive such friendly & professional service as we enjoyed at our daughter’s birthday lunch for 17 guests yesterday. From arrival I was given excellent, impartial advice on the extensive wine list & found wines to impress our guests plus a superb mock-tail. All the staff were wonderful with the small children & very accommodating with parking the pushchairs. A small table was found for us to display the birthday cake & balloons. The food was plentiful, delicious & excellent value & the service efficient & very accommodating. From a family who dine out frequently & often at 5 star venues, I cannot recommend Stanbrook Abbey enough, it is quite unique in its style, venue spaces & attitude to guests, we can’t wait to visit again.

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea with a bit of sparkle. A little hobby of ours is afternoon tea. The atmosphere was lovely, the waiter (unfortunately didn’t get a name but he had a lovely ginger beard and great personality). If we have one criticism it would be that the sandwiches could use a touch more filling and softer bread. Other than that faultless will definitely be back again.
