I had booked a room in August for my in laws to stay during the Christmas period only to discover 3 days before Christmas that the booking was not made and that the Owners were going to go to Kent on Christmas Day and the guest house was going to be closed. The Owners' excuse was that the booking was... More

We stayed for four nights as we were in London for a family get together. The house is in a nice quiet road. Finsbury Park tube station a 5 minute taxi ride or if you are able , just 15 - 20 minutes walk. Our room was good, very clean and warm, the bed was particularly comfortable. John and Ann... More

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!

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.
