Personally I love the kitsch and quirky decor of this place, but it’s certainly not going to appeal to everyone. I wish people would give them a break about the breakfast. A free breakfast does not automatically mean you’re getting a full English so don’t assume that. I was fine with a croissant (and vegan at that). Customer service was fab. Only slight downside is the walls are thin so we heard someone snoring in the middle of the night but that’s not really the venue’s fault someone is a loud snorer. I’d recommend based on the price overall.

Cute and quirky, overall was a little lacking
Abel's Harp is a very lovely and quirky hotel set in some of the most beautiful countryside. Inside it presents a wonderful cute place to stay and on first sight you will gasp and coo at how lovely it feels. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the countryside is stunning. Unfortunately the details are not quite as impressive and I was a little disappointed as my stay went on. I found the bed in my room was on the tired side, it sagged in the middle quite badly, this was fine for me as I was on a solo trip. I would imagine a couple being more affected by this. The bathroom was clean though signs of wear were beginning to show, and the shower was beginning to whine loudly. I ate at restaurant and the food was okay. There was plenty served to me it did however feel like it was all cooked from frozen and some a little bland. The mushrooms, salad and the chips were good though. Breakfast was the most disappointing, I gave it a pass as we have been in a global pandemic and some concessions need to be made. I had a single croissant with butter and jam in a. paper bag to start my day. It was a bit of a joke considering you are in some of the most hardy walking country and the breakfast was not substantial enough to get you over the first hill! Abel's Harp is a lovely place in a lovely part of the country, it has massive appeal as you walk in, and I hope that as the world returns to normal the experience will match that initial wow factor.

Lovely but slow to book in guests.
Great quirky hotel, room not 100% clean though. When we arrived we were left sat at least ten mins waiting to book in while the receptionist was chin wagging in the bar.
