This is a curious place. Its virtually a secret! The hotel belongs to the government albeit rather remotely. Its belongs to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. It has no website, its hard to find (no signs) and it is difficult to book. It is however really pretty good. The rooms are simple but clean and tidy. We were in a big... More

We have just celebrated our Son and daughter-in-laws wedding at Cosener's House. It was perfect. We were all so well cared for from the moment we arrived. The food was excellent, the presentation and taste just wonderful. Family and friends stayed in rooms overnight which were lovely and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The gardens, house and function rooms make you... More

We have just had our wedding here and we cannot find fault in anything. From the moment we arrived we were incredibly well looked after, nothing was too much trouble. The setting is beautiful and the food was outstanding. All this and far less expensive than any of the other local venues (including Steventon House hotel). We would highly recommend... More

We have just returned from a lovely wedding celebration at Coseners. Staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and the food exceeded all expectations. The wedding lunch was so good that we barely managed to taste the evening food even though it looked just as delicious. Rooms were comfortable and well equipped and the breakfast was delightful. A really fantastic way... More

I stayed here for eight weeks in total with work over two four week periods. The rooms are tiny and never get cleaned properly. The food was disgusting and served on plates that were hotter than the sun! Only two choices of evening meals and desserts a lot of the time they had ran out of what I had ordered.... More

Often i spend meetings in dull meeting rooms often in not to exciting university buildings. This building is tucked away in Abingdon among some beatiful buildings. The food served during lunch was very high quality making it a great meeting.

The location is beautiful, next door to the Thames in Abingdon. The wedding meal was great and the whole wedding was organised by Corrys creations. Tim Brendan video Services did a brilliant wedding video for a good price which gave us a lovely memento of the day.
