          Relaxed hotel. The food was excellent and the room was adequate for the rate. Very nice bar/lounge.

        • Older travelers

          Courtesy of staff, cleanliness of room, quality of breakfast

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Friendly and welcoming.

          Groundfloor bedrooms next to beer garden. Very off putting having people walking past

        • Single

          Very friendly staff, good selection of draft beer/real ale and good menu selection. Very nice isolated country inn with inside and outside dining on an 'off the beaten track' road. You do need a car though as its outside walking distance to nearest town and one bus a week if that.

          When I lived in the area I used the restaurant frequently and was always very impressed with standard of food, but I was disapointed with the standard of cooking on this stay, it's not as good as it was when I was there a year ago. An example, and maybe I'm wrong in saying an omelette should be uniformly yellow, but mine was distinctly white and yellow.

          Bathroom requires refurb. Being an old building the noise from the function room travels right through the building into the bedrooms, as we found out on our second night

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          Great staff, very helpful and understanding. Rooms could do with an refurb but for the price is fantastic! great breakfast too.

        • Single

          Pub based accommodation. Perfectly satisfactory. Breakfast was certainly above average with fresh orange juice and decent coffee. I ended up with family room as was only option available.

          10.0

          Excellent service, clean simple rooms, great shower & nice pub/dining room.

        • Single
          7.4

          Quaint country hotel in a quiet country setting but easy reach to Oxford. Staff polite and efficient, bar warm and accommodating, restaurant simple but good and a very comfortable bed with crisp and fresh bed clothes. Nothing spectacular but all-round solid performance making it very relaxing and great value for money.

          The place felt a little "tired".

          Close proximity to Oxford City Centre

          Dining experience was not great although the waiting staff were really friendly!

          We have family and friends in Abingdon and always stay at the Dog House. Very friendly, home from home atmosphere.

          The duck starter.

          I found that the hotel/pub staff were very intent in not having any form of conversation but more intent on getting the till full, also it was a bit strange when I ordere a meal to find that the starter was larger than the main meal, at first I thought they had made a mistake & provided me with two starters, I did mention the fact at checkout & was told it was a new menu & they would have a word with the chef later which didn`t help me in any way, also the breakfast although nice was also small, 1 sausage, 1 bacon etc.Strange but true.

          We had an excellent Easter weekend stay at the Dog House. Staff were very polite and friendly. Room was clean, food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. Good location for Park and ride into Oxford. Hope to go back soon. I would definitely recommend it.

          The staff/bar staff were particularly polite and attentive. Good menu selection and very good food at a reasonable cost. Selection of fine real ales. Room was clean and the bed comfortable. Tremendous value for money and I would recommend this hotel.

          Nice room, although above kitchen - this did not cause any problems...I quite like waking up to the smell of a good breakfast ... and it was a good breakfast - very good. Restaurant deservedly busy so staff offered to bring the meal up to my room to save my hanging around in the bar when I had work to do - the meal arrived quite quickly and for no extra charge for the room service - well done. I look forward to going back.
