I stayed at the Lavender Guest House for two nights whilst in London on a work trip in July 2015. From making the booking with the owner's father, John, to being greeted by him upon my arrival and departure, my entire stay was a delight. The house is down a quiet Clapham street but less than 5 minutes to the... More

The Lavender Guest House was such a brilliant opportunity for me to stay in. John and his son Tony called me when I was back in Turkey to confirm booking and give directions of their property. Perfectly situated at the heart of London Borough of Battersea and close to the busiest train station of London, Clapham Junction. You can travel... More

I travelled with a friend to visit the tennis at wimbledon. Lavender guest House proved to be a fantastic place to stay. The room was spacious ,always clean and the garden and garden room were an extra bonus. The owner was helpful and we even were able to leave our bags on the last day in the store. It is... More

This hidden jewel in London offers the flair of a countryside guesthouse right in central London. Just around the corner of Clapham Junction (one of the busiest train stations in the world and entry point for trains from Gatwick Airport, as well as a big nightlife spot), it still manages to be dead-quiet at night and have an attractive little...

John the manager was lovely, made us feel like an old friend visiting. Even posted my phone charger back when I forgot it :). Would definitely stay there again and thoroughly recommend. Room was clean and comfortable, great value :)

finding the Lavender Guest House was a truly serendipitous experience. Situated in a pleasant road only minutes away from major bus routes, South Kensington, Waterloo, Aldwych & all stops in between it is well placed for exploration of all parts of London. The bijou house is elegant, scrupulously clean and the staff unfailingly helpful, my bags were carried to and... More

We had a family celebration to attend and the Lavender Guesthouse was ideally situated 5 minutes from the venue and the station. Despite usually only taking longer-term bookings, the lovely owner went out of his way to find us a room for 1 night at short notice! The whole place was clean and comfortable and the service was excellent! Would... More

The bedroom is very comfortable with a good and hot shower. It is clean and every day the rooms is cleaned and the bathroom is checked. Great breakfest provided by Mr John himself and his helpers. If you want to prepare your own food, there is several supermarkets nearby and there is a place in the guest house that you... More

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
