Great location. Suited us because it was round the corner from our brother who we had come to visit. No problem with parking. We were greeted by Bob the owner of the B & B. Very friendly and made us feel very welcomed. Room was clean and comfortable. Beds were so good it was hard to get up the following...

The Hilton it is not. But for an inexpensive stay In Leicester, clean comfortable and friendly, this guest house was fine. We were staying with another couple and Bob gave us the run of the top floor with a shower room just for us. Bob was a figment in the aether until breakfast time when he cooked an excellent breakfast....

Hi John Thanks for the review. I suppose future guests require some clarity as it has been pointed out once or twice that I am not an ever present when guests arrive. The reason is that I have a job which is required to supplement the incredibly meagre earnings of an 8 room guesthouse which can only operate in this...

We stayed two nights at the end of August. Bob was friendly, and cooked a very good breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the room clean and big enough.. If we come back to Leicester, we'll stay there. We came to see Richard III's exhibition; We asked practical information about Leicester and Bob was very helpful. On our last day,...

We booked the Abinger Guest House for 2 nights while dropping our daughter off at De Montfort University. It was just what we needed--walking distance from the university, very clean, quiet, large bathroom, good English-style breakfast and Bob was very enjoyable to talk with and had lots of tips and help for us. We would definitely stay there again and...

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...

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...
