Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 July 2012

We enjoyed ourselves at Abinger Guest House because it was in a quiet area, the beds were comfy and wide and there was a teasmade in the bedroom, The showers were well designed and clean. There was plenty of well cooked food for their breakfast with the good company of the hostess and the witty repartee of the host. There were also daily free local newspapers.

Room Tip: The first floor en-suite room at the back was quieter and the bathroom was good.

Steady on, I won't be able to get my head through the door, and if Pauline reads this she'll want even more money.

Thanks for your excellent review and compliments. It's great to know that our guests truly appreciate our efforts and enjoy our hospitality.

Abinger is situated a little bit away from the center but it has a bus stop near the door that carries us up to the town center in 15 minutes. If you buy a all day ticket to the driver you can visit Leicester with a guaranteed return trip (before 9PM). The breakfast is awesome, the beds are clean, the restrooms are even cleaner.
Me and my wife slept for two nights and, in my case, I've been returning for the past three years. If I'm going to Leicester I don't even search for another place to stay. Bob and Theresa are almost family to us.

Room Tip: To choose a good room just ask Bob Welland (the owner) for a room. Every room is a good room. Believ...

Hi Paulo
Glad to see we kept you and your wife happy once again. I must say that I am disappointed with your profile picture, which would benefit greatly from a dash of orange and a silly hat. Congratulations on your PHD, and good luck with the Portuguese economic catastrophe.

We stayed at Abinger Guest House for three nights due to family graduation events at Leicester University and we can say that it is ideal for anyone seeking quality and personal attention. We booked two rooms plus shower/toilet, excellent for a small family... located at top floor of house and this gave us a lot of privacy.

Comfortable beds, very good breakfast (well done Theresa and Pauline) and helpful environment are all positive features of this guest house. We highly recommend it for those visiting Leicester.

Abinger is also located in a quite area but but walking distance from center of town. However taxis are always available.

Great guesthouse. A bunch of us stayed here, and there were quite a few changes to our bookings - the owner was very patient and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

This is a lovely friendly guest house with good facilities and a warm welcoming staff. Breakfast was great, full range of options and the room was comfy and surprisingly quiet despite being on a main road into town. Would definitely recommend this over some hotels we have stayed in in Leiceste; this place was quieter, more comfy and a bargain considering breakfast was included. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Hi Sally
Thanks for your very flattering review. I'm always happy to hear that we compare very favourably with some of the city hotels, but, being a family business with a small and exceptionally dedicated crew, we appreciate the choices available to visitors, and never take anything for granted. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

This was a nice place to stay. Rooms were clean and quiet. Breakfast was great. Although I did not meet the owners (due to my late arrival), I found the checking in and out procedure quite effortless.
I would stay here again.
