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

Finding affordable accommodation in London is more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack. When it is not only affordable (dearer than national prices but cheap for inner London), but clean, quiet, comfortable; near many excellent restaurants; with frequent buses and trains to all parts of the capital, it is indeed a miracle. Tony and his staff were attentive... More

I stayed here for 5 nights whilst visiting my daughter in London. It's a very pleasant place to stay, and Tony and the staff were very helpful and accommodating (so to speak). He was very happy for me to check in early after an early arrival at Heathrow, and the room was clean and very comfortable.

We stayed at this hotel from August 6th to 11th. We have been pleasantly surprised by the warm and loving welcome of the Owner. The room was bright, spacious, comfortable and extremely clean. The Owner showed himself to be always available for any request, proving to be a gentleman of another era. The breakfast is typically British, but it is... More

I've been to this place several times since 2009. Hosts are wonderful, the place is clean and it's at a walking distance from Clapham Junction. At this price, London is full of shabby bed and breakfast, and this is one of the exceptions. Thans to this lovely B&B you can go to London at a not expensive price and stay... More
