From the beautiful vista of the house and garden as we drove in, to the super comfortable bedroom and bathroom, our stay at Abbotsford House was great.I am glad I went by the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to book.And the location excellent as we wanted to be close to Melrose Arch. The pricing was really very good value - way cheaper than anywhere else in the area.
