We stayed here for the first time last weekend - nice quiet location for the weekend and made to feel very welcome. Lots of character in the house, warm and cosy and excellent breakfast served by Tom. We'll be back!

You could almost imagine yourself in the countryside surrounded by open spaces and wooded areas close to Finsbury Park and within easy reach of central London. The hosts in this very well-kept and peaceful guesthouse offer a very warm welcome with great attention to detail. Once through the door you are treated to a discreet but attentive concern to make...

This was actually our 3rd stay at Ossian Guesthouse, the first being 14 years ago and the second 10 years ago. It was wonderful to find that things are just as great now as they were for us then. The ease of access to and from Heathrow and all areas of London on the Tube and the comfortable, homey feel... More

We stayed at Ossian Guest House twice and and truly appreciated both stays. The place is beautiful and very clean in a calm neighborhood and the guests are very welcoming. You can go to the centre of London pretty quickly, this makes it a good place to stay for visiting London or for work.

We stayed here for a family wedding and were delighted with the location, the warm welcome, and the great service. We stayed in the jacuzzi room, and made full use of the facilities :). The bed was comfortable, and we had a good sleep both nights. The breakfast offered plenty of choice, and they even accommodated us when we appeared... More

I was delighted by the quirkiness of the decor. So colourful and cheerful - as were the host and hostess. The breakfast table provided a great start to the day - both to the eye and to the palate. The bed in the Rose room was comfortable though I only experienced this from on top rather than under the covers... More

Ann & John's home is in the Northern end of London away from all the hustle and noise of central London. This is just what we were looking for. It was conveniently located close to the bus / tube. John went out of his way to be sure you knew where you were going and giving helpful hints. The rooms... More

Our stay at the Ossian Guest house was marvelous. Ann and John welcomed us in a very tasteful and very 'English’ house (we stayed in the Rose Room) in the North of London. This was a perfect starting point for the many activities that we had planned for the weekend (bus stop down the street, brings you in five minutes... More

The only place my wife and I stay when in London--a reasonably priced and extremely comfortable place in a great neighborhood in North London. Ann and John are warm and welcoming hosts, the rooms are quiet and nicely appointed, breakfast encompasses a range of tastes, Cannot recommend enough.
