The Abbey Guest House is a B&B that is spotlessly clean. It's not ultra fancy, but it certainly filled all of my needs and I stayed there three nights. It's a great location and the perfect price. Breakfast was delicious! I definitely recommend a family or individual staying there. It's not a night spot type of place, however. I loved... More

Had a great welcome, very comfortable and had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. I would definately recommend this guest house and will be staying again. Abingdon is a lovely town and friendly. Plenty of parking space off road.

I have been staying at this lovely B&B on weekly basis (due to my work commitments) since December 2014. There were lots of improvements taking place meanwhile. The wi-fi is now supplied by high speed cable, the back garden is very inviting (with the benches and new lovely plants) and the building constructions are now ended. The end result is... More

Our second stay here was very good. Food and accommodation all that could be asked for from a B&B. However, facilities provided for guests support and comfort goes beyond what is usually found in a B&B. Welcome from owner and staff very good. Transport into Oxford could not be better from our experience. Would stay again and also recommend to... More

We live locally, but had a last minute stay at Abbey Guest House as we needed to escape our house for a night as a new floor was being laid. We're a family of 5, but the fantastic family room was easily large enough for all of us and very comfy. We're also a mixture of vegans and vegetarians, which... More

I stayed at the Abbey Guest House overnight in early March 2015. Terry (the owner) was very helpful through out the stay; providing advice regarding local taxi companies, nearby restaurants and transport to/from Oxford (there is a bus stop right outside the guest house). She was also very accomodating with regards to providing gluten-free and dairy free food - both... More

The excellent service started when I received a personalised email from Terry (the owner) confirming my stay and giving me further details I might need upon arrival. When I arrived she was extremely friendly, giving some great advice about where best to eat (as they don't do food in the evening there) and generally making me feel welcome. When I... More

I have stayed at Abbey Guest House for a couple of nights every other week in December 2014. Although there are building works ongoing, Terry made me feel like home. She endeavoured to make sure I have the food I wanted, the heating I needed and the lovely company of an excellent host when she could join me for a... More

Booked in for Christmas morning whilst visiting relatives. Found Terry to have a curt and controlling attitude. Told my husband to make sure he closed the door and lock it! She told him to press the lift button to call the lift! Very patronising! Hotel very clean and geared for disabled and elderly. Rooms clean but very simple. All night... More

It is impossible to make amends for a miserable stay and I can only apologise – as I did when you left. It is extremely regrettable that the circulating pump for the central heating decided to stop working over the night of Christmas Day/Boxing Day and, of course, I must take full responsibility for being unable to find a plumber...

Terry does everything possible to make your stay comfortable. We stayed during some construction, but it was no trouble at all. Terry's hospitality more than made up for it. There has been a lift recently installed which was very convenient. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was great. Every thing was clean and spotless.
