Stayed for just one night and found it to be a good experience. Lovely building with quite some character. Our room was spotlessly clean, tea & coffee making facilities, bathroom full of towels, free wifi and Sky Sports TV! Front of house inevitably has traffic noise from busy road. Breakfast was of good standard. Adequate street parking adjacent to hotel.... More

Love this place. Lovely rooms. Nice staff. Use of all the kitchen area which was handy. Breakfast lovely. Parking at rear. Close to local shops bars etc. And sky tv in rooms. That sealed it for me. When I'm working away and come back to watch sky sports etc. Is a good fit for me. Will use time and time... More

Very happy with the room, service, and location. Clean, and comfortable temperature. I thought that noise might be an issue from adjoining rooms/landing, but did not have any problems. I would stay here again.

Spotlessly clean in a perfect location for our family visit. Efficient service checking in and out and at breakfast but a little smile would have been nice especially at breakfast. Will be staying again on our next visit as its a bargain for London and is great value

Four of us stayed here for one night and cannot recommend this guest house highly enough. The building is beautiful with so many original features. The rooms are plain and simple, but beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The breakfast is a hot buffet and again, perfectly fine and in a very pleasant breakfast room with French doors out onto the... More

The room we stayed in was lovely and clean. A little on edge if you're a night owl though because I was worried about disturbing the room attached next door. Window does open to cool the room down and there's a big fan. There's a little traffic noise but it is London! Staff were fantastic! So polite and helpful. Breakfast... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a night. The hotel is clean and modern (pictures online don't do it justice!). Balham underground station is a 10-15 minute walk away. Free wifi! Lovely breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised! We will come again.

The staff are extremely friendly and keen to make you welcome. The room was tidy and functional without being overwhelming. Breakfast was decent but could do with being a touch hotter. Free parking was a real bonus. Overall it was a good experience for a great price. I will be visiting again.

Both my daughters now live or at uni around Balham so we regularly stay in this area. This must now be about our fourth stay at Balham Lodge if not more. We have always found the hotel to be very friendly, its spotlessly clean and appears well cared for. We stayed in room 8 this time which is at the... More

A nice plave overall but... Breakfast was in a small crowded room at the back with THREE members of staff watching. I was repremanded for opening a glass door to reach a bottle of water and told it was chargable. I asked why this cabinet wasn't locked or marked "items for sale" but there was no response.
