Having just just returned to Australia we wish to take a moment to thank Bligh House for help and hospitality regarding our short stay .We only wished that we could have had more time to spend in such an historical setting.

Nice place! Feel like home! I was staying at Film Studio for 4 nights, and it is so convenient that I can cook my meal in the room, and gayna prepared lots of food for me to eat as much as i can. Definitely will stay here again if I am coming back to London.

A couple years ago I stayed here with my husband and this time I was in town alone to see the museums. I stayed in their solo room, the Captain's Cabin. It was hardly a cabin - it was a fully-appointed, adorable, roomy, bright, clean, contemporary, comfortable space to make my home base before visiting the best museums in the... More

This marvelously quaint B&B and charming hosts turned out to be one of the highlights of our visit as it is beautifully situated across from the park at the Imperial War Museum. Not only were Gayna & Simon wonderfully welcoming and helpful from first contact but the Royal Suite we stayed in was extremely spacious in it's living quarters with... More

My husband and I stayed in the Film Studio for 4 nights. We could not have been happier. Simon and Gayna met us at the door with big hugs and smiles. They escorted us up the stairs to the room on the top facing the London Eye. This room was a little piece of heaven. Sitting area with bed and... More

We want to echo all the positive recommendations made by Tripadvisor for this guest house. We had a very comfortable stay in the Royal Suite and definitely would try to stay here again on our next visit to London. The owners were most helpful with dining suggestions and railway reservations.

My wife and I stayed at Captain Blogh House for six lovely nights in April. We stayed in the Film Studio and the Crows Nest rooms. Both rooms were efficiency style and had everything you could possibly want including groceries for your first few breakfasts! London is a very expensive place to eat out so we dined in for about...

New kitchen cabinets, new toilet, and a bit of re-arranging in the bathroom....very nice. There care we get is awesome. Fresh bedding every couple of days (we were there... More

No. 207 928 2735 or email gaynansimon@talktalk.net). This Guest House is, justifiably, highly recommended by Trip Advisor and several travel books including the Rough Guide to London. In... More
