From the Guestbook

The moment we all gathered at Abbotsford everyone was blown away by the exquisite Hope Scott Wing. It made a significant birthday all the more special and allowed me to spend it with dear friends. Everything you could want for is here and you live like a Lord or a Lady for your stay. Nothing was too much trouble for us to gain the maximum from our stay.
