Very clean, comfortable, well cooked full English breakfast. Being on top floor it was very private. Walking distance in to centre. Good value for money and I can recommend it as a very good place to stay.

I was in Leicester for four weeks on a working trip just recently and stayed in the Abinger throughout. This was my fourth visit to the guest house and I have to say I was not disappointed in any way. I was in Room 2 this time, a spacious twin, with fireplace and period features intact, which is on the...

You couldn't ask for better service at this well presented B&B. My room, a twin for my sole occupancy for one evening was made up with fresh bedding and an assortment of towels - the room had a large basin and large mirror (great for us girls) or there was a shower available on a separate floor. There was a...

You're nuts - on the tree! Thanks for the compliments. I'm sorry to hear that TripAdvisor took your 5 bubble review and magically converted it to a 4, but they do weird stuff from time to time and complaining is a waste of energy.

We were staying in Leicester for one night while we were moving our daughter into her new flat and just needed a bed for the night. We chose the Abinger because it was in the right area of Leicester and it was a very good price. We had the double en-suite room which was not particularly large but did have...

Thanks for the compliments, always appreciated. I think the huge bed makes the room look small, but, as you say, it's pretty comfortable. People keep commenting that my rates are low but every time I try to raise them business drops off so it's possible that other places charge too much and perhaps they're not so busy. Anyway, I think...

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...

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...

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...

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!

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...

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.

When booking a room at Abinger, you probably do it because you've stayed before or know someone who has or you have read positive reviews about us. Another consideration may be that our prices are quite reasonable compared to other establishments nearby. The rate we charge includes a small contribution for the beds, mattresses, linen, laundry, housekeepers pay, food, light,...
