I booked my stay in The London Apartment easily by using the booking form provided. All I had to do was pay 1 night as a deposit and the booking was secure. We arrived mid morning and our apartment was ready - and perfect! We were given an enthusiastic welcome to London and all our questions were answered. There was... More

I had the chance to experience two rooms in Captain Bligh House during my week-long stay in London. My first room was the Film Studio, and then I moved to the Captain's Cabin. When I arrived, Gayna met me with such energy that I felt invigorated after my 14-hour plane flight, and showed me where everything is and gave me... More

My mom and I stayed in the Crow's Nest apartment for six nights and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Gayna and Simon were so welcoming, and they made us feel at home from the start. The location of Captain Bligh house is very convenient - a couple minutes' walk away from Lambeth North tube station, which is... More

We stayed 4 nights in the London Apt at Capt. Bligh. Between the 2 of us it is our 3 time staying there....that says a lot. Such good value for money, very clean, quiet, excellent location. Wonderful hosts.

Four great days in the Captain's Cabin of this lovely home. Although on a busy road, it was extremely quiet with a lovely garden outlook. Immaculately clean and very comfortable with good facilities for cooking if you want to eat at home. Good pubs and cafes close by, as is the Borough Market. Launderette also handy - managed by a...

We’ve just had a wonderful stay of over two weeks in Captain Bligh’s sitting room. Yes, THAT Captain Bligh. We often saw tourists gazing up at the historical plaque that hangs beside the matching blue front door. Up one flight of stairs, the newly remodeled “Royal Suite” has a beautifully sunlit main room overlooking the park at the Imperial War... More

I returned home from a wonderful trip to London two weeks ago, and now that my mourning period is over (just kidding!), I feel it's time to write a review of my home-away-from home. My mother found the Captain Bligh House listing for me, and after checking out their website for myself, I emailed Gayna and Simon that night to... More

This was my second time at the Captain Bligh House and won't be my last. Being welcomed with a warm embrace after travelling halfway around the world - there's just nothing like it. This time I stayed in the Crows Nest on the top floor. I LOVED it. It's warm, light, cozy, and very comfortable. Gayna and Simon are absolutley... More

How could you not stay in a house with so much history AND with a Blue Plaque ? All the rooms are lovingly prepared and you have an apartment feel to each of them. Clean and comfortable. Opposite the Imperial War Museum... Walking distance of the London Eye.... And The Southbank ..Near to Central London ..... When friends come to... More
