I stayed at Captain Bligh House while doing some research in the Imperial War Museum, just across the road. The location was perfect for my purposes, and access to central London is also really easy. The Houses of Parliament are a comfortable 30 mins walk away. I stayed both in the studio for a couple of days and then in... More

I returned to the Captain Bligh House in April for a seven-night stay in the Captain’s Cabin. (I fell in love with the Bligh last year in my first visit, a ten-night stay in the beautiful Royal Suite.) It is impossible to lavish too much praise on this extraordinary guest house. Everything is absolutely perfect. Gayna and Simon are the... More

We spent 6 nights in early July in the London Suite and couldn't have been more comfortable. Gaynor and Simon were most welcoming and helped us prior to arrival with some transport questions we had, a big tick for emails responses. Our Suite was very clean and had everything we needed, plenty of room too. We even had friends over... More

My wife and I stayed at"Bligh House" in late June and occupied the London Suite. Bligh house is a landmark,not only because of its history, but because of it's being, today, the finest and most comfortable stay we have ever enjoyed. Gayna and Simon's welcome was warm and personal and their helpfulness and concern for all their guests is so... More

We recently spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was incredibly hot in London, but despite no AC the room was very comfortable (and I'm really tough to please when it comes to this area). The location is perfect. You are in a neighborhood, not crowded with big hotels. There are local pubs, restaurants, and services all... More

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

Lovely, charming owners. Warm and cheerful welcome. Was my first visit but my wife's fourth. Oh such a beautiful place to use as our home base to see and enjoy London. Friendly corner pubs and local restaurants with great food and drink. Room faces onto beautiful park and Imperial War Museum. Short walk to the Parliament Square venues. Bus system... More
