Had two nights at the Ossian. It's a lovely, quirky place to stay. The hosts were wonderful.the breakfasts were great. The room was really comfortable. We don't usually stay in guesthouses, preferring hotels, but with places like the Ossian, we may change our choices in future.

Stayed here for a couple of days as my son lives nearby. Communication with Ann was fantastic as I asked a few questions before our arrival, and replies were always prompt and informative. We were greeted by Ann and shown to our room, which was the Jacuzzi room at the back of the house. The guest house is in a... More

We stayed here as a couple for a long weekend. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The hosts Ann and John were helpful; John was great to talk to over a very varied breakfast, they are both frequent travellers. The house is a 10-15 minute walk from the tube/bus station and Finsbury Park, an easy journey to central London. There... More

Welcoming hosts and a beautiful house full of character located in a very quiet street in Crouch end. Close to central London and other amenities. The room was well equipped and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful, served in a very quirky dining room. Our only criticism was that the 8.00-9.00 slot is quite early, particularly at the weekends... More

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!
