I've stayed at Abinger for one week and I can say it was a really good one. The guest house is conveniently close to city center, the railway station and the universities, has quiet and clean rooms, and a friendly, helpful staff. I strongly recommended for short and business stays.

I had recently a lovely week stay at the Abinger guest house, the room was excellent very clean with a substantial breakfast in the morning just what you require before a days work, the owners were very helpful and staff very friendly ,I would certainly recommend this establishment for either a short or long stay.

Stayed for 1 night for kasabian gig. Felt very comfortable and happy, great welcome, nice vibe great chit chat and a lovely breakfast. Ithink bob would do all he could for you, printed everone a map to make sure we all knew where we were going. Will definitely stay again when in Leicester and would recommend the same to anyone.

My 13 year old son and I needed to book a night in Leicester, having been given tickets for the kasabian concert. We had left it very late and Leicester was completely booked up, but by some amazing stroke of luck we managed to get a single room in the Abinger Guest House, due to a last minute cancellation. I...

First of all I would like to thank Pauline for all her hospitality during breakfast at Abinger, our mornings were brighter as had conversation and laughs with Pauline. We stayed in Abinger guest house for 5 nights and was very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable, the room was big enough for our family and was very clean, the added... More

That can't be right! You enjoyed your stay? Pauline nice and Bob "colourful", what about the mouldy damp rooms, the rude owners or the inedible cold breakfast. Now I don't know who to believe. But wait, let me see, oh yes, I remember you guys actually stayed at Abinger. How we all laughed! Pauline is great isn't she? Glad we... More

A horrible experience, the owner was a rude and abrupt man, the room was very dusty and smelt of mold, despite complaints no alternative was offered. The breakfast was disgusting, we just about managed the tea & toast. I would not stay here again even if it was free.

You never stayed here and never will, but if you like to get your kicks trolling trip advisor hotels find one that might somehow resemble your ridiculous comments More

Special context for us: we moved from France to Leicester and we decided to go stay at Abinger Guesthouse for a start. We're were supposed to stay there just a few days but it turned out that we extended our stay and we certainly don't regret the experience. Enjoying the peacefulness of the building, the cleanliness and comfort of the... More

One of the very nicest B&Bs we stayed in. Clean, comfy rooms with fluffy towels plus witty and hospitable host who made our family very welcome. The value for this B&B is excellent, especially since it comes with one of the best breakfasts around. We enjoyed seeing the Richard III exhibit and medieval Guildhall - a short walk from Abinger.

We loved having you stay and it's fantastic that you took the time to share your positive feelings about Abinger, plus, your review was number 100 which I guess is something of a milestone in this class of accommodation. Thanks for the kind words and it was a pleasure to entertain you More

What a relief! When you arrived and asked about all the exciting things to do in Leicester I was worried we might disappoint - after all, we don't even have a beach and rarely see the sun until June. I'm delighted that the three of you made the most of your visit and took away some of the quirky English... More

What a find! So convenient for visiting the city centre - a mere 10 min walk, free street parking outside the B&B. The room, and especially the bed, was very comfortable and well decorated, with detail in all fittings, within the limited space. Bathroom was en-suite, with plenty of space, clean, with lovely towels and good heating. Excellent breakfast, cosy... More
