Welcome to Abbey Guest House, Abingdon-on-Thames
This is a very difficult time for all of us and so we must do all we can to help others. In particular we, at Abbey Guest House, are mindful of the Government advice being given and will do everything we can to minimise any potential risks for both staff and guests. Appropriate PPE and cleaning protocols are provided for staff use and hand sanitisers are available for guests to use
In addition, I have thought it well to mention the Ventilation system that has been installed throughout the Guest House and which many guests may well appreciate.
The ‘Heat Recovery Ventilation’ system improves air quality by providing a ‘whole house’ air change every two hours. It works by taking the stale, polluted, moisture laden air from inside and replacing it with fresh, pollen filtered air from outside – with up to 90% of the outgoing air’s heat being recovered and transferred to the incoming air’. This feature adds yet another layer of protection against any airborne Covid-19 virus droplets that may be circulating in the air.
We are currently able, under the Government restrictions, to offer a limited service. This means that we are not able to offer the level of service that we would normally provide (i.e. we are not able to offer a welcoming cuppa upon arrival as we have always done in the past!).
For those that are happy to stay with us and accept the restrictions imposed, we are now allowed to offer breakfast but within the guidelines. This has created a slightly reduced service as we are not currently able to offer the cold buffet option. However all appropriate precautions are taken to ensure the safety of both guests and staff during breakfast service.
The on-line booking diary is open for future bookings and the possibility of amending (or, if necessary, cancelling) a booking ensures that any monies paid are protected under the ‘cancellation guarantee’ policy.
We look forward to seeing new guests, as well as returning ones, in the not too distant future.
Our latest accessibility addition
The ethos at Abbey Guest House has always been to provide accommodation for as many guests as can reasonably be accommodated. The most recent addition to the range of aids and options available has been the installation of a Ceiling Hoist. This has been installed in the ground floor twin ‘accessible’ room and enables guests to be easily transferred from wheelchair to profiling bed. It can also be used to transfer to the commode/shower chair to access the roll-in wetroom.
On the following pages visitors to this site can look at a lot of detail about what is offered, but a some key points are:
There is cosy guest lounge where guests are welcome to sit and relax – with the addition of a welcoming fire when it is cold outside.
The whole house is accessible to virtually everyone as a lift (elevator) gives access to the upper floor.
There are two family rooms; the smaller one is a triple room, and the larger one is a massive family room that is wheelchair friendly and can cater for 5 or 6.
