From arriving to tea & cake to a fridge to bottled water daily. Nothing was too much for Andrew & Janet. Great food every day even with an alternative to the daily menu. Many thanks for a great week. Will see you again.

A clean comfortable room. This guest house is excellent if you are gluten free, especially having home cooked gluten free puddings/desserts - wonderful. There is a fridge on the landing where you can store some of your own items.

Fantastic welcome at Abington Guest House by Andrew and Janet. Just after we arrived we were shown to our Room which was spotlessly clean. We were given a lovely cup of tea and delicious piece of gluten free cake. We had a King size bed, placed on it was two chocolates for us to eat they were replaced each day... More
