“Triumph Day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

When you arrive at Abinger you are greeted by Bob, an hospitable and friendly man who kindly and amusingly caters for all your needs.
We stayed at Abinger very well, and we had a wonderful breakfast!!!
The furniture of the room was very romantic!

Hi Massimo

Thanks for your positive feedback. Sorry I couldn't see you before you left but I hope your wife had a warm and cosy night :) and that she didn't complain too much on the ride back to Europe.

Bob

Our room was spotless, if not exactly big. Tv, fridge, kettle and sink ware installed. Shower and toilet were right next to our room - also spotless.
The bed was very big - in our opinion could have been smaller to make more floor space - and a tad soft.
Though we didn't see the friendly owner much (he seems to live elsewhere), he did on his own initiative offer us a fan as it was a very hot day.
Breakfast was delicious with full English available alongside a variety of cereals with fresh milk and proper orange juice (not the thinned down lemonade-like stuff you get some places).

Hi Adam
Thanks for your kind review. We hope the bike is better now.

To address your point about the bed; we understand that a superking sized bed does rather dominate the room your stayed in, but we need to have adaptable room configurations throughout Abinger, and all our doubles can be split to make 2 full sized single beds. Not necessary for your visit, but when 2 guys need a room, they are generally reluctant to share the same mattress.

I'm glad you enjoyed the breakfast and the fan too.

Bob

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.
