We spent las weekend overnight with them and i have to say that it´s a nice place clean and tidy, good room with comfy and huge double bed and great shower! The landlord is a really kind person and we could enjoy a tradicional english breakfast homemade. So definitly I recomend this place if someone is thinking to go and... More

I had my hen do in Leicester last weekend: 5 of us went to the races and then a night out. We had originally booked into (or so we thought) the Stony Croft hotel, which looking at the reviews was a blessing that they hadn't taken our booking properly. My mate managed to find this quaint little B n B... More

Hi Smiley Sammy I am always happy to rescue visitors to Leicester from the Stoneyycroft "Hotel" It was an absolute pleasure to look after you all and I hope the wedding breakfast is just as satisfying as the one I cooked for you. Thanks for the review Bob More

On arriving I called Bob the owner via the instructions on the front door of the property. A little impersonal but hey it's 2015 I thought! Room was "upgraded" which was appreciated but as it was a twin room booked from a single I didn't really gain much, it still had a detached shared bathroom. The room was clean and... More

Another satisfied customer looking for a publishing contract. Don't believe everything you read. If I had been told the stay was being paid for by the NHS, I would not have offered the discount, reserved for students and their families visiting Leicester universities. Of course, if I hadn't been asked to provide an invoice in order that the cost of... More

Owner Bob and manager? helper? Pauline made us feel welcome and cooked us a good breakfast. Our en suite room had a great bed and a bigger bath than many of the B and B's we stayed at in the UK. Bob is a hoot, fun to talk to about Leicester, the UK, the world. Reasonable rates.

The guest house is on a really quiet residential street in a conservation area, really well located for shops and restaurants and about 15 minutes from the centre of town. The room was a good size and really clean, as was the en suite bathroom. The wifi worked, and was a decent speed. Breakfast was delicious, and Pauline was really... More

The Abinger has three great things going for it: 1) It is a great value 2) It is conveniently located a nice 15 minute walk from centre city Leicester 3) Proprietor Bob. Bob knows everything about Leicester and, if he doesn't, he lies. He also serves a perfectly acceptable English breakfast. You will not starve. The en-suite double was fine... More

Hi Jeffrey Thanks for your flattering review. I have no idea what a "Classic Nostalgic Victorian or Edwardian B&B” is but it sounds a lot more expensive than my place, and possibly a little drafty. They probably don't have free WiFi either. Although Abinger was built in 1895, so probably ticks the Victorian box, classic nostalgia is not my configuration... More

As a last minute booking for a low price I'll be honest I didn't expect much. We arrived, phoned up and were given a code to let ourselves in and make ourselves comfortable, something which I would prefer (there is nothing worse than travelling for hours to then have to make small talk with staff when all you want to...

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
