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

Easily reached by train, nice quiet neighbourhood, clean room, good bathroom. Very nice staff! 24h receptionist, ok wi-fi, TV in the room. And an excellent breakfast included in the very affordable price. Truly recommendable :-)

We stayed here when visiting the area for a family wedding but found it was equally well placed for a trip to central London. Even with luggage, the guest house was within walking distance of Balham station. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds were comfortable. Our room was on the top floor and very quiet. Breakfast was buffet... More

We stayed here in June as our daughter couldn't accommodate us. We arrived late at night but had a lovely welcome. The room was nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was "no-frills" self-service but presided over by a lady who kept everything topped-up and clean. I didn't try the cooked food so can't comment on that but I thought it... More

Lovely hotel, pretty room, lovely and clean. Didn't have time for breakfast but really lovely little hotel with great facilities. Good transport links (regular bus outside takes you to Balham) Very good price, thoroughly recommended.

Stayed overnight in this guest house, checked in late after day at Wimbledon, reception polite and friendly and very helpful. Beautiful building, bedroom 9, a quirky twin which suited perfectly. Great bed, duvet and pillows, very clean. We thought breakfast was great, plenty, hot and nice environment. My new fav for short stay in the capital.

Firstly the hotel is lovely - decor tasteful and elegant and the reception staff brilliant. What lets this hotel down is the breakfast offering which is dissapointing. On presentation quality of ingredients and flavour. We were really disappointed by the buffet styled steel tins of food whose contents had been boiling away for a good 3hours. Room 2 is also... More
