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.

Five of us stayed here in August while we were completing the Thames Path walk. Terry was extremely welcoming and hospitable, and she really went the extra mile to help us with all our arrangements. Our rooms were spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. We'd all recommend a stay here.

We only stayed for 1 night. We had a nice welcome and was explained about the building work going on and it wasn't a problem for us. The room was clean but quite small and did seem a bit cluttered. The small fold up table seemed to be in the way, the sofa was ok but again seemed to be... More

I am sorry that we failed to meet your expectations, particularly in terms of the room size. We are only a B&B - that is a converted family house - and, as has been explained before, when we converted the rooms we decided to reduce the room size in order to provide en-suite shower rooms as that seemed to be...

We feeled very heartily welcomed by Terry at Abbey Guest House and enjoyed the two days in Abbingdon/Oxford. We got all, we needed: a wonderful, calm room with all facilities, good hints for eating in Abingdon and Oxford and driving by bus, and a best prepared breakfast! If we'd ever return to Oxford, we would prefer to stay at The... More
