Stayed for one night as had a night out in London near by. The receptionist didn't give us a great welcome and hardly said two words to us. Room was very small but expected that. Breakfast was a bit of a let down seemed like no love went into the food and again the staff here didn't welcome us -... More

Reasonably priced, friendly welcome and very clean all round. Ensuite bathroom clean, though could do with new shower head. Excellent breakfast and fresh coffee - none of the instant stuff oh no. Practical and 10 minute walk from the station.

Was in Balham for a birthday party and chose this guest house because of the reviews on trip advisor.. Very satisfied with our stay. A beautiful building, with lots of character and charm. Spotlessly clean. Stayed in room 9 at the front of the building on our first night, then another family member had a single room, number 14. Some... More

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.
