The Cosener's House
Ranked #5 of 5 Hotels in Abingdon
Reviewed 20 March 2012

We stayed at the Cosener's recently and found it absolutely adorable, peaceful and purely excellent. Contrary to some peoples (two) opinions, the staff were extremely polite and helpful. The place is immaculately kept, both inside and out. Parking is very good and it's less than 5 minutes walk into the Town centre, without having the usual Town traffic and other noise on your doorstep.

Would we go there again? You bet!!!

I dont know which was worse, the staff or the room! The manageress (I presume) has to be, by far, the most unpleasant and rude person I have come across in the hospitality industry. How she keeps her job, I am unsure!! The room was disgusting! The carpet was covered in toenail clippings, the bathroom toilet had been used and not flushed, dust everywhere......it had not been cleaned! The tv didn't work nor did the kettle. Great shame as the surroundings for this hotel are beautiful.

I think the other reviewer was just unlucky with his room. Coseners House does not purport to be a five-star hotel (its main function is as a conference centre for scientists) but provides accommodation of a generally good standard at a reasonable cost. My daughter had her Wedding Reception there and many of the guests stayed overnight. I have not heard one negative comment, although some rooms were obviously better-appointed than others. The staff were all unfailingly polite and helpful, and the food was excellent - the Wedding breakfast was exceptional and breakfast the following morning was one of the best I have ever had. I think what makes this hotel is its setting on the banks of the river by the Abbey ruins, a quiet haven in the centre of a lovely little town. I cannot thank the organiser Harry too much for his unfailing good humour and helpfulness not only during the day but also with the preparations for the wedding which went without a hitch.

The Cosener's House provides a very variable standard of accommodation. I typically stay in Abingdon on business, but I chose here as the Ridgeway Hotel was full. The rooms in the 'newer' block are very average, with nicer rooms in the main block.

It is located in a very picturesque location in Abingdon and a very short walk to the town. Car Parking is limited, but I was able to find a spot, some cars where double parked after I returned from diner.

Breakfast is a buffet style, seat yourself affair. It was generally good, although they had run out of sausages on this occasion by 08:15 in the morning.

The room was a real let down, the main room itself was functional, although a little dusty. It was the bathroom which was disgusting, as you can see from yourself in the photos. It really had not been cleaned properly for a long while and repairs had been ignored or bodged.

I took the photos to show the receptionist at checkout the next morning; however after asking to checkout, all I good was a swift "Thats all fine." No question of how my stay was or any friendly wishes for the day.

I've included the photos for you to make your own choice.
