“It's Abingdon”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Abingdon is Abingdon.

The Rowen Guest House is basic but totally fine. Nice big room with all the basics you would expect. Brilliant Full English included in the price, a few minutes walk to the town.

If you want to keep to a budget or are in the town for a jolly-up, stay here

I needed to book at short notice and was travelling from Liverpool via coach for business in Oxford next day.Due to bus being late only arrived after 11pm but it was no trouble.Room was comfortable with large plasma.Ok so there is a shared bathroom but for £40 a night I am not complaining.Breakfast was nice and the owners were extremely welcoming.
This is a very homely place and you can actually feel the warmth.I left next day and due to unforseen circumstances had to stay in the area for a second night.I did not think twice about booking a second night in the Rowan and once again everything was faultless.Thank you very much for your hospitality,I will certainly come again if am in the area,and will recommend to anyone I know is looking also.5 stars from me.

A very pleasant guest house. Clean and tidy with two very helpful owners. Breakfast good.

Room Tip: SAT NAV sends you to the house next door up a small lane.

This nice little B&B was perfect for us to stay, quiet and with a nice garden. Good car park and easy to get to Oxford, we even drove to London one day, no problem. The owners offered good service and a good english breakfast. Rooms were a bit small but very clean and tidy. Can very much recommend it.

Stayed in room 4 - good size, quiet, view of the garden, good mattresses on the bed. Ensuite was OK - taps and loo flush a little wonky. Very welcoming and pleasant hosts. Easy walk into Abingdon with a large variety of different restaurants to try. Would definitely use again.

Stayed two nights on a chaep tariff. Loved abingdon. Room was a bit small and not very keen on sharing bathroom, but ok at the price. Beautiful breakfast room with lovely garden. Easy to find and very good parking.

We spent three nights full of satisfaction and sweet memories. Clean and cosy rooms, friendly owner and host, at your fullest service from various yummy breakfasts at your choice (english, continental, indonesian, even japanese !!!), to excelent guidance for strolling around Abingdon and Oxford.
We really had a pleasant stay in this guest house and will surely come back one day.
