I booked a hotel room and rang up to get some more details as I have never visited area. The person I talked to was very unpleasant, was not bothered to answer my question and to help me. When i said that 'he is not very customer service focused' he replied that 'he doesn't care, he will cancel my booking... More

Dear reader, you may not be surprised to know that TripAdvisor allows people that have never set foot inside Abinger to post reviews about the guest house in an attempt to damage our reputation. Sadly, here is another. Feel free to read it, I can't be bothered as I would prefer to spend my time concentrating on people that actually... More

This hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in UK. Very very kind staff, clean and comfortable room, and good location near the TESCO. I will stay again and I strongly recommend the hotel for the people who will stay in Leicester! 日本人にもかなりおすすめです。

In all honesty, I am well travelled and have stayed in many hotels, at all price ranges, in many locations. Abinger Guest House is the underdog choice in comparison to all the mainstream big hotel franchises, but to me, this little home like, quirky b&b has easily become my favourite place to stay. The gentleman running this gorgeous little place... More

Hi Becks, It's taken me a while to respond to your amazing review because I was so touched by your compliments. Having been criticised by some in the past - albeit for reasons more personal than professional (fraudulently claiming to be a paying student in order to get a discount, being caught in the act of trying to leave without...

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

yodekid, Owner at Abinger Guest House, responded to this review

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...
