Hi Andy and David I hope the open day went well and that you are encouraged to return to Leicester where you can take advantage of our hospitality again and enjoy the "poor student" discount. I am glad you enjoyed the mayhem laughingly referred to as weekend breakfast, and am happy that you confused early onset alzheimers with "character". My... More

I came to Leicester with my parents to get to know the city before I started my studies at the University, and stayed here for a week. It was comfortable, clean, close to the city center and the breakfast was fine (they have a very flexible menu), the best thing though was the service, Bob and Pauline are both great... More

Hi Maria Wow, that was quick! You must have penned the review even before they shut the fire alarm off! It was delightful having your family over and I hope they enjoyed the city as much as the guest house. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope the rest of your time in Leicester will be just as comfortable.... More

Bob, Teresa and Pauline provide excellent quality and reasonably priced accommodation in Leicester. i regularly return, because of the value, the welcome, the location and facilities. 20 minutes to the city centre, less to a wide range of places to eat. I generally choose the "room only" option - valued by a regular traveller - but on the early occasions... More

When you arrive at Abinger you are greeted by Bob, an hospitable and friendly man who kindly and amusingly caters for all your needs. We stayed at Abinger very well, and we had a wonderful breakfast!!! The furniture of the room was very romantic! SUGGESTED!!!!

Our room was spotless, if not exactly big. Tv, fridge, kettle and sink ware installed. Shower and toilet were right next to our room - also spotless. The bed was very big - in our opinion could have been smaller to make more floor space - and a tad soft. Though we didn't see the friendly owner much (he seems... More

Hi Adam Thanks for your kind review. We hope the bike is better now. To address your point about the bed; we understand that a superking sized bed does rather dominate the room your stayed in, but we need to have adaptable room configurations throughout Abinger, and all our doubles can be split to make 2 full sized single beds....

Steady on, I won't be able to get my head through the door, and if Pauline reads this she'll want even more money. Thanks for your excellent review and compliments. It's great to know that our guests truly appreciate our efforts and enjoy our hospitality. More

Abinger is situated a little bit away from the center but it has a bus stop near the door that carries us up to the town center in 15 minutes. If you buy a all day ticket to the driver you can visit Leicester with a guaranteed return trip (before 9PM). The breakfast is awesome, the beds are clean, the... More

Hi Paulo Glad to see we kept you and your wife happy once again. I must say that I am disappointed with your profile picture, which would benefit greatly from a dash of orange and a silly hat. Congratulations on your PHD, and good luck with the Portuguese economic catastrophe. Bob More

Great guesthouse. A bunch of us stayed here, and there were quite a few changes to our bookings - the owner was very patient and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
