Welcome to Abbey Guest House, Abingdon-on-Thames

Coronavirus Update

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.

Room 1 ground floor accessible room with profiling bed now has a ceiling hoist fitted.
The new chilled and room temperature water dispenser in the breakfast area of Abbey Guest House in Abingdon-on-Thames. It is available for guests to use at any time along with a selection of fruit squashes.A new FREE ‘filtered’ chilled water dispenser is now available in the guest breakfast room, it is hoped that everyone will be able to enjoy the health benefits. A range of fruit cordials are also available to flavour the water if required.
2018 Summer started with accommodation being taken by some ‘new’ guests visiting the birdhouse and then some comfortable seating being installed nearby for our more usual guests!
