After months of being closed an award-winning hotel is gearing up to open its doors and make a triumphant comeback.

Following on from the Prime Minister revealing his four-stage plan to get the country open after the third national lockdown, Coombe Abbey Hotel will be welcoming guests in once again from May 17, subject to Government review.

But there is even more reason to celebrate as the venue will also be reopening its outdoor areas from Wednesday, April 14.

The West Terrace and outside bar will be open for Afternoon Teas and people can book their tables now.

When the venue reopens fully it will have been after a long six-month shutdown because of the Coronavirus pandemic and the team is eager to see everyone again.

As before, Coombe Abbey will be following the most up-to-date Government guidance to make sure that visitors and staff are all safe and secure.

Ron Terry, Operations Director of Coombe Abbey Park, is thrilled that an official opening date has now been set.

“It has been so long since we have been able to welcome guests into Coombe Abbey because of the Tier system and lockdowns, so to see a clear end in sight is very exciting,” said Ron.

“Now we have plenty of time to plan, get everything ready and make this a real celebration to returning some sort of normality.” 

“The health of our guests and staff is of course paramount, so we will continue to monitor Government guidelines during the coming months and have every recommended safety procedure in place for when we make our comeback.” 

“After what the past year has brought us, we cannot wait to see everyone again, host events and get back to what we do best. We hope you can join us.”

In the meantime, Coombe Abbey Park remains open for local people who are exercising, and Café in the Park has a takeaway service.

The hotel is also hosting live stream events and takeaway afternoon teas for those wanting to get a taste of the Coombe Abbey experience before reopens.

People are reminded to maintain social distancing and follow safety procedures while in the park or picking up a takeaway.

For any bedroom, weddings, meetings and events bookings up until May 17, staff will be getting in touch to discuss reservations, cancellations or rebooking.

Ron added: “Staff are working hard to contact anyone who may have a booking with us before May 17 to discuss their options.” 

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but we appreciate your patience. We hope this is the last time we will be doing this and we can look forward to brighter days.”
