Tucked away amidst acres and acres of land, this 4-star corporate hotel is centrally located, just 4 miles from the M42, near the town of Redditch. Recently benefitting from a £2 million refurbishment, it also has a whole host of wonderful facilities and a super range of flexible event spaces too.

Entering the lovely and bright lobby, we received a warm welcome from their friendly staff. From here, access to the bedrooms, meeting rooms, bar and restaurant can all be easily gained. Alternatively, should you fancy a quick round of golf, then their championship course is just outside.

Throughout our time here, we couldn’t help but notice the modern feel of the place. It has all the facilities that you need to host a superb event and what is more, you will have the support of your very own dedicated events co-ordinator to make it run perfectly too. Fab!

Number of bedrooms: 99 bedrooms

Bedrooms: A great range of room types are available, ranging from your Classic Room through to the stunning Penthouse Suite. All rooms though are of a really good size, feeling spacious and contemporary, with most of them only recently being refurbished. We stayed in the Balcony Executive Room and it was just gorgeous. It was so nice to be able to soak up the views over our morning coffee.

Number of floors: 3 floors

Business centre: No but the hotel’s team can take care of everything you’ll need

Wi-fi: Yes. Worked really well throughout the venue.

Fitness gym: A superb range of equipment is available in the 1st floor gym. Loads of cardio machines and free weights as well as weight machines are all here. There is also a punch bag, if that meeting earlier in the day didn’t go so well.

Spa & Swimming Pool: Should you fancy a quick plunge after a hard day, then there is a heated indoor 15-metre pool along with a pool-side hot tub, steam room and sauna for afterwards. Their spa also located in the same area and has 5 treatment rooms (including 1 double). Offering a great range of packages using Elemis products, it is the perfect place to go should you feel like you have earned a bit of pampering.

RESTAURANTS & BARS

The Brasserie, Lounge 98 and The Terrace are the main places to go when you fancy something to eat or drink. Of the three, The Brasserie has the most extensive menu, offering a superb selection of a la carte starters and mains. With room for 80 covers, it is a great size too. We had dinner there and the food was excellent with very nice service too!

Located on the 1st floor, The Terrace is a more informal affair and yet still features everything from wood fired pizzas to a range of tempting lighter snacks. Feeling bright and with an outside terrace (hence the name) it was our favourite place in the hotel – and that was even before we found out that they have their very own regular ‘live lounge’ entertainment here! It was a really nice place to spend some time, either having a bite to eat or catching up on some emails.

Whether its a morning coffee, afternoon tea or a late-night cocktail that you fancy, then Lounge 98 is for you. A great place for informal meetings, where you can enjoy great views of the golf course and gardens over an aromatic coffee or one of their amazing cocktails.

MEETING / CONFERENCE ROOMS The Abbey Hotel has a total of 8 meeting rooms, with 6 being located on the ground floor and a further 2 on the 1st floor. Whilst the majority of these air-conditioned rooms come equipped with the latest AV facilities, they are all modern, practical and wonderfully flexible.

In addition to the meeting rooms here, The Abbey Hotel also has a great selection of Team Building activities that they offer through their partner agency, Blackwell Adventure. Everything from rock climbing and archery through to golf masterclasses or cocktail making is available and is a great way of turning a great event, into an incredible event.

The Henley in Arden Suite

As the hotel’s dedicated meeting suite, the Henley In Arden Suite is a super space that can hold up to 200 people when used as a single room. This area is also incredibly flexible and can be split into two separate meeting rooms or even 4 individual syndicate spaces.

Although it is in the main hotel building - it has its own entrance, feeling somewhat detached and away from the hotel, making it ideal for more private events. It also has its own registration desk and excellent loading options as you can come straight in from the car park. All in all, a great space that would be perfect for conferences, dinners, awards or weddings.
