A big succulent breakfast is cooked on order and a friendly chat is available too. It is within wallking distance from the bus and train stations. I came to Leicester to attend King Richard II...

When I saw the room rates at the guesthouse website (after a fortnight or so of frustrating search for budget accomodation in Leicester), I'm afraid I thought, "Something must be wrong here - it can't be so inexpensive, with a central location like that". Well, absolutely nothing was wrong, quite the contrary - it by far exceeded my most optimistic... More

Hi Ksenia Many thanks for your fabulous review - and yes we do have TV's in the room, but they are flat against the wall and easy to overlook. I know I said it at the time, but it was fantastic for us to host your group and show you that hospitality and comfort can still be achieved on a... More

Brilliant guests too. Sorry that the circumstances of your visit weren't more uplifting and I hope the patient soon recovers, but it's always a pleasure looking after Dubliners as it gives us a chance to stop talking and listen. We had a great time looking after you and your mam and look forward to your return. More

I stayed at the Abinger on an overnight trip to Leicester and was very pleasantly surprised and delighted with the whole experience. It is obvious that they have given a great deal of thought to the detail of organising the room and public areas, and as a lone traveller it was good that the owner was glad to chat over... More

Have just stayed for the fourth time at the Abinger Guest House and each time has been great. Very well equipped bedrooms with everything that you need for a comfortable stay. I'm not sure why recent reviewers have had cause to complain about the guest house being cold because even when it was only a few degrees outside the whole... More

I've stayed here about 15 times in the last three years and will continue to do so while attending study weekends at nearby De Montfort University. Over this time I've stayed in nearly all of the rooms and have found them all to be very comfortable, both in terms of the beds and the facilities - a sink in the... More

I stayed here with a friend in october, for a convention taking place in Leicester. I've been completely blown away by the quality of the rooms and how nice the owners are, considering it being one of the cheapest places in Leicester. I can honestly recommend this place to everybody, the standard is higher than any *budget* 2-star hotel (priced... More

Guys, I'm sorry I haven't responded sooner, but I have been fighting off Trolls! My daughter had the pleasure of looking after you and she told me that your gear was amazing - you are truly Rocking Horses! I am delighted that you had such good time and appreciate your kind words. We both look forward to your next visit. More

We had a very good night's sleep, on a comfy bed. It was warm once the heating came on, and we were glad we paid extra for the en-suite bathroom with great shower. Breakfast was most welcome, and tasty, although a little slow being made and we enjoyed chatting with the other guests. Bob the host was very chatty, but... More

My advice to anyone staying here is to avoid doing so in the winter months, considering how cold it is. You may also want to consider whether you wish to stay in an establishment who’s Basel Forte esq owner is extremely rude about his guests on trip advisor, as amusing as his wild flights of fantasy might be.
