This is a nice and simple B&B. If u can handle shearing bathroom and toilet with other guests then its a good place. Typical english house with narrow stairs inside. I arrived to Leicester in the evening and I called several places asking for a room. Bob (the owner with his wife Teresa) answered: Hello Sweden! I got a room... More

Hi Tibor Thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure to help you and I'm delighted you had a pleasant stay and saw Leicester City win another Champions League match. I'm not sure how wide the staircases are in Sweden, but I'm pretty sure ours are regular size for here. (I put the champions league reference in here so... More

One of few unfortunate consequences of Leicester City's recent success is that it's harder to find accommodation on match days. We had a hard time to find a suitable hotel in our price range until we stumbled upon Abinger Guest House. As it turned out, it was a blessing in disguise. The rooms were superb value for money. We booked... More

Hi Jonas Once again, my dogs have more leftovers because the beds are comfy. Thanks for taking the time to praise my little guesthouse and compliment the service we provide, after all spending valuable time in the Swan and Rushes is much more important than hanging around waiting for a cab! More

I have stayed at Abinger Guest House for 2 weeks and everything was perfect! The location is really good and very close to supermarkets and city center.

Hi Stavros We enjoyed your company as much as it seems that you enjoyed our hospitality, and thank you for your kind words. Once again, our reputation is saved by reviews from guests who have actually set foot inside the guest house, rather than those trolls and halfwits that delight in their misery. Having spoken to you, it appears that... More

Actually, I can't say much about the Abinger. Ive arrived there near 15pm and there was anybody to open the door. Ive been waiting on the street for more than 30 minutes. Ive checked my e-mail, there was no messages. When I sent a message asking for any information, it was informed my code to open the door and the... More

Running a guesthouse can be a hard and thankless job, and it is reviews like this one which lead one to ask why we bother at all. There is a sign on the front door, adjacent to our 5 year continuous certificate of excellence, which advises guests to ring or text a mobile number when they arrive, should we not... More

I have stayed at Abinger Guest House a few times now and I've never been disappointed! The owner, Bob, is more than accommodating and has always been very helpful. The breakfast he cooks is excellent and always cooked to how you like it! The rooms are clean, well equipped and the beds are comfortable. Whilst staying here I have met... 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

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
