I sense people are very slightly nervous of staying at Balham Lodge and I wonder why? I think some of the photos do not do justice to the Lodge, they tend to make it look a little old fashioned and perhaps there is a thought its uncared for. We booked late wanting to stay three night, they could only fit... More

We stayed here for 2 x nights as we could not bear to return to the travelodge at the Balham station and what a difference, for only a few pounds extra. Room was clean, no frills. Breakfast was good. If you plan to stay in Balham than this is the place.We would return in the future.

Stayed here with my hubby And two kids for three nights. The receptionist are so polite and kind. They are always ready to help you. The room is clean, front with windows so even if there's no AC the electric fan was enough. The toilet is always clean. I appreciate the tea/coffee corner because only few b&b provides it. The...

Stayed 3 nights friendly welcoming staff, very nice rooms, you could hear some noise from other guests at night in adjoining but not a major. Limited parking but staff were very accomadating in allowing me to leave my car parked for 3 days. Good food at breakfast, overall a good place to stay.

We stayed one night in June and thought the Lodge was very clean and it was just like the pictures on the website. The room was adequate, no frills but all you would need for just a few nights. We were a couple and had twin beds but they were comfortable, it was very breezy and cool, we opened the... More

Stayed here for one night while visiting our son in Balham. Good location, friendly staff. Stayed in an attic room which was spotlessly clean, nice decor and comfortable beds. Nice breakfast room but shortage of tables. We came down for breakfast at 8.30 and it was a bit cold by then, shame would have given 5 stars otherwise.

Very close to tube and to my daughter's place. I found the staff of this hotel very helpful. The place was very clean. Nice breakfast room and I appreciated the walk in shower! Nice wooden floor which could be noisy at times with people above my room.

So pleasantly surprised by this charming B&B. Visiting my son in Balham and this was so convenient for the tube and Balham High Street. Sweetly decorated room in keeping with the house. Was on the top floor and no lift but was kindly helped up the stairs with my case. Considering its London thought it was very good value.

On the plus side the hotel was clean and convenient for our stay. Good to have parking. On the minus - no hot water in the evening, wifi also disappeared mid evening, lots of traffic noise and staff with limited English. Good sized room with tiny shower room. Squeaky bed and some issues at breakfast as there didn't seem to... More
