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

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
