This is by far the best value for money if you are visiting London. The cleanliness is amazing - five visits and never found a speck of dust! This time I stayed in a little gem of a room with very cleverly designed cupboards giving all the essentials! Everything is done to help guests enjoy their stay and providing an... More

We stayed at the Lavender Guest House for 8 days while visiting London. The guest house is located in a charming and safe neighbourhood a short distance from Clapham Junction train station -- 2 train stops from Waterloo and 3 to Victora Station. Very convenient to travelling in suburban south London and countryside, too. We stayed in 3 rooms 1,... More

In the patio there are dishes, cuttlery, microwave and frige available for guests (we didn't use them because we were in the hotel only for the nights, all days spending sightseeing). Location: not far from city centre and well-communicated with bus stop just... More

Very good impression since the arrival, when a very kind man warmly welcomed us. He explained us all the necessary things to know and showed us the residence, including a lovely patio in the garden equipped with microwave, cutleries, dishes etc. where guests can bring their own food and have meals. We stayed in room 4, which had just been... More

Very friendly, spotlessly clean, convenient location. A really good find for us as this was perfectly placed for visiting family. John and his son, Tony are also lovely hosts. We had room 1, which didn't have a full ensuite but had its own separate shower upstairs and a spotlessly clean loo tucked in a cupboard in the room. It was... More

From the moment I booked to the second I left John was the friendliest, most helpful and caring host. He booked a very good taxi to pick me from the other side of London and drive me to the hotel. I was then checked in and stayed in a beautiful, very large room with a its own seating area, wide... More

We - a family from Denmark - stayed at the Lavender Guesthouse with two small boys in room 4 - and it was really, really great. The rooms are newly renovated and it is so clean and guestfriendly. The service and the staff there are unique - they offer the greatest service possible - and the owner of the place... More
