My two daughters and I stayed at the Lavender Guest House for a week recently.. The room rate is average and reasonable. But it is the excellent location of the guest house with convenient transportation links that made our stay and trip to London such a breeze. The place is just a short 15-minute walk to the tube station and... More

Me, my mum and my sister stayed at the lavender guesthouse for 6 days just last week and it was a very enjoyable experience. The price was worth the comfort we were given. Other than that, the housekeeping was efficient. There was a beautiful garden for tea and the reception telephone never fails to be picked up if you need... More

The guest house is located at a lovely little town, and the hosts were amazing. They went out of their way to make sure that our stay was enjoyable and gave excellent service. Clapham Junction also has many nearby restaurants, supermarkets and any stores that you might need. It is also close to the London city centre and is easy... More

The location is great: at Clapham Junction which has tons of shops and a 24h ASDA, also a quick train ride away from central London. My room is really clean and spotless. John, the owner, is a really welcoming host. Its a wonderful place to stay at in London.
