I found the website, liked the price, they had a room available and so I booked. A few days later I parked my car on the road outside the place and went to the front door. The instruction on the door was to 'ring once and phone a given number if there was no reply'. This I did. I was...

Thanks for the review There is no filter in the kettle. Following your comments about the drinks, I did a blind tasting between the drinks served at breakfast and those in the room. Coffee was a little more wishy washy than gold blend, but far from terrible and £10 less per 200. As for tea, I preferred the one in...

We spent 6 nights in Abinger Guest House. We found it very clean. good breakfast and very comfortable beds. Bob, Teresa and Pauline were very friendly, they made our stay a very very pleasant one. If we had to visit Leicester again we will definitely stay there .

I stayed at Abinger Guest House for 3 nights this past week while attending a conference at De Montfort. Teresa and Bob were friendly and helpful. My room was super quiet, and the bed was ridiculously comfortable. It's a short walk from the university. This was the perfect place to stay.

Clean, comfortable, great shower. Bob very entertaining whilst cooking breakfast as was the other guest staying that weekend. Easy to park outside Abinger & free. Will be back! One slight criticism, on arrival we were informed that breakfast was served at 8.30 am. We were going to be having a rather late night on the Saturday so it seemed unlikely...

Abinger Guest House took me back to all the best of B&Bs from my childhood. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 is the shared toilets and shower on a different floor, but I knew going in that it would be shared, so the only surprise for me was the run upstairs. The shower on the first floor...

Our room was quite small but exceptionally clean and comfortable. Be aware that there are no electrical outlets in the bath and only two in the room (at least in our twin room). I don't believe they have any first floor rooms so you will haul lugguage up narrow staircases. The thing that makes Abinger shine is Bob the innkeeper....

Visited Leicester for a Week, Stayed for 2 Months, Abinger provided a home from home, was friendly, Accomodating, Breakfasts were great, Big TVs, Shower was lovely (not the usual 8KW electrics you get). Would definately be my first choice when revisiting Leicester.

This place is an absolute jewel in Leicester's crown. The guesthouse is really nice as well as incredibly easy to find and get to, about a mile or so from the city centre and about 1.5 miles from the railway station. The rooms are more than adequate and Bob, the owner, is incredibly accommodating, even making me a bacon and...

Thanks Daniel. If I had known you thought we were so great, perhaps I would have waived the 10% Poor Student Discount you got. (just kidding). You're not the first guest to have overslept and I guess that's a kind of compliment too. As the "face" of Abinger weekends, I tend to get more namechecks than the really hard and...
