As advertised -
The room was very clean, as was the bathroom (which in this case was â€en-suiteâ€Â as in â€œslightly down a locked-off section of the hallâ€). Strong smell of bleach from the bathroom indicated it was rather thoroughly sanitized. Room we stayed in is small but comfortable and faces the back, so there wasnâ€™t much noise, an occasional shout from a neighbor ending at a reasonable hour. Other than not having much room or places to put luggage, while car parking is free, it's on the street, so that's a bit of a misnomer. Owner doesn't live on-site but comes in for opening and breakfast, and is friendly and helpful. Wifi very strong â€” router is at the head of the bed! Good breakfast. Close to city center and Richard III, etc.

Bob's a nice guy, with great rooms . -
Really enjoyed my 1 day stop over at Abinger. The room was very spacious, clean, & had a dam nice large screen tv to watch The Simpsons on.Bob is great to have a chat with, & his anecdotal stories, entertain, the man has been around & done stuff.Bob, I'm tappin' this out in having slept in my car for the 2nd night running, (cheaper, but oh so not as comfortable) on Daymar Bay beach.Hoping 2cu again. Neil.
Cheers Neil. I really enjoyed your visit as I'm glad to hear that you did too. I hope you find what you're looking for and continue to take magnificent photos. Keep in touch.

Goede en rustige locatie voor bezoek aan Leicester -
Je hoeft geen luxe te verwachten . Waren hier voor 1 nacht. Het doet wat het hoort te doen. s'Avonds vermoeid aankomen en s'morgens uitgerust kunnen vertrekken. Geen lawaai ,goeie bedden.kamers en douches waren proper.
It was cool man, I really enjoyed looking after you guys and I'm pretty sure you enjoyed the city, the digs and the game. Same time next season I guess

Lovely stay -
We were really surprised and pleased with our stay. Lots of communication from the owner Bob and the rooms were spacious and clean. Parking is really easy and plentiful on the road and the location is great, about 5mins in the car from the centre.There are sinks in the rooms and the beds are very comfortable.We will definitely be back :-)
I look forward to your return. Cheers

Fabulous stay, would definitely recommend -
I chose Abinger Guest House for the location as I was up in Leicester for my son's graduation and my son lives a few doors away. I booked an en-suite and both room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Bob (the owner) couldn't have been more helpful, great personality with a very dry sense of humour!Breakfast was absolutely delicious - for Â£3 an absolute bargain! Nice to sit and chat to others around the table, it was a really friendly experience. Bob even went the extra mile by dropping me off down the road to the ceremony as I was running late and it had started raining. I will definitely be booking again next time I'm in Leicester - excellent stay, thank you Bob :-)
Thanks Julia. Going the extra mile is what we try to do. I hope the graduation was fun and not too clappy

Great Guest House -
I've stayed at the abinger guest house twice, both times the rooms have been lovely and clean and I've been really well looked after by Bob the manager. I was a bit anxious about shared bathrooms, but the showers are amazing, they've always been clean and I never had to wait for one to be free. Would definitely stay again.
Brilliant, thank you Rebecca

Overall excellent -
Access was straightforward just ring the bell or phone. Instructions are on the door The proprietor is very friendly and helpful. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Room 7 and 8 on top floor share a shower and separate toilet and sink. Also there is a sink in room.Give it a go, you will be glad you did.
How marvellous, I think I will. Thanks for the feedback Bubia

Cheap, cheerful and perfect for the football! -
Stayed here recently whilst watching my beloved team play Leicester. The guest house is what is and makes no qualms about it. Room was clean, tidy and served a purpose. IN fact was a lot better than the money we paid for it! Huge TV on wall was unusual for these places, bed was comfy and noise minimal. Shared bathroom facilities wasn't any drama either. Host was a real nice guy and enjoyed bit of banter and using his local knowledge. Would defog come back. Cheers fella!
You lost to Middlesboro - that must hurt so much. Still I look forward to welcoming you again, but it won't be next season. Thanks for the kind words

Perfect place to stay at in Leicester! -
Abinger Guest House is really an excellent and stylish place to stay at, particularly due to the caring and personal service provided, cosy atmosphere, with the amenities striking the right ballance between the modern and the traditional. Great location, as the most prominent places in Leicester are all within reach.
I'm so glad you had a memorable stay in Leicester and it was a pleasure being your host

Fantastic in every way -
Abinger was excellent - I would recommend anyone to stay here - the room was spacious and clean, it was only a short walk to town with many bars along the way! Free parking on the street outside, easy check-in, fantastic breakfast and a great host, all in all I couldn't ask for any better.
Wow Zoe, your review was also "Fantastic in every way", thank you

Amazing interior decoration ,fast wifi,big smart TVs ,great service and security ,breakfast was lovely and fresh.Very clean bathrooms and bedrooms.the mattress where soo comfortable I would buy one of them if I could.I really enjoyed my stay definitely will come back again!
You can buy one - I think Oak Furnitureland sell singles for about Â£300 a pop - details available on request. Meanwhile, thank Ian for the decorating, Marks Electrical for the TV's and me for putting it all together. Thanks for taking the time to write

Great time at the \'Abinger Guest House\' -
What can I say, I felt like being home. Nice breakfast, the room was big and clean and as requested by us with three beds. We were for the Rugby World Cup in Leicester and were photographed by the Leicester Mercury the local Newspaper and Bob was able to get the pictures for us. Should I visit Leicester again, I will surely book my stay at the Abinger Guest House.
