This was very good standard of accommodation, with friendly, helpful people I would recommend this B&B for anyone wishing to stay near Oxford. The breakfast was continental but had an excellent choice.

Had a comfortable stay with Abodes B&B whilst on business in Oxford. I found it easy to find in Kennington, not too far from Oxford. Also good parking space in the close. The ensuite room was comfortable too. And last but not least, also a good continental breakfast.

Great price, location, lovely hosts, clean bed comfortable to sleep in. continental breakfast nice. There are some small adjustments that would have greatly improved stay from quicker communication to room and shower room adjustments.

Super tidy and clean, the breakfast is very delicious and the room is very quiet. The location is close to the bus stop. The bathroom has fast hot modern shower, the heater works well and the bed cover is very light and warm.

Welsh hospitality in a part of England where genuine friendliness is often a scarce resource: nice room; good shower. The property is a modern suburban house down a quiet close ideal for somebody travelling by car.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation. The host is very friendly, and went an extra mile in providing information before my stay to help me plan. She made me feel very welcome.

For those who like visiting Oxford, yet prefer to stay in a more quiet surrounding, Abodes is a good place to stay, for a reasonable price. A 15 minute bus ride takes you to Oxford center. It feels like a family home, the owners are very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. (Continental) breakfast was O.K.. The pub in... More
