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.

We stayed at this Guest House last weekend and found the whole experience a pleasant one. Located in a quiet area of Crouch End, just a 10 minute walk into the town which has all the amenities you need. On arrival we were quickly shown to our room appropriately named the "Jacuzzi Room". A decent sized room located at the... More

Stayed at the Ossian Guest House with a work colleague for two nights whilst working in nearby Highgate. Ann and John both greeted us on arrival, showed us around and gave great information about the local area and where to go for meals. The guest house is set in a quiet terrace and we found parking (in a large van)... More

I had attempted to arrange a stay at the Ossian guest house as it was conveniently located for an event I was to teach at in London. Having made contact with the owner through the website, I confirmed by E-mail that I would like to stay on the specified date, and asked for the PayPal details. Once she'd sent those... More

I do completely understand how frustrating it must have been to discover your booking has not been confirmed & I myself would be upset, I do apologise for that. It is not in my interests to cause people any trouble or problems. I do feel it is worth mentioning that in this instance though, I simply did not receive the... More

It was great to sit around the table at Ossian Guest House with other travellers while enjoying a cordial breakfast – and what a breakfast table! (See pic taken early my final morning). I stayed in the Rose Room and it was excellent. Buses, trains and underground are within walking distance and the local area has the atmosphere of village,... More
