This place is great, we had few business meetings throughout the year and the staff has been amazing every time. Stayed over at the hotel and the rooms are amazing as well. Will definitely come back once the lockdown is over. Food is amazing as well.

I needed an overnight stop following a circuitous drive delivering fine art to customers in time for Christmas. I was travelling from a tier 2 area and Abingdon was a convenient stopping point. I was met with a well organised, Covid-conscious checking in system, ample parking and a very clean room. Dinner was delicious as was breakfast. Staff were very careful to maintain social distance, tables were screened off and well spaced. The icing on the cake was that the bill at the end of my stay was very reasonable indeed. Would highly recommend!

Room Tip: This is a coaching Inn on a high street, however, the secondary double glazing worked well.
