This an absolute jewel of a bed and breakfast. Just 5 miutes walk away from the train station it is both close enough to central London but situated in a quiet street with the bedroom looking out on to a secluded lovely garden. From the moment I entered the house I was treated with warmth and nothing was too much... More

This was the 3rd time I've stayed at this B&B, usually I stay for work this time was a sight seeing trip. I chose to stay hear again because its close to Local transport which is well connected to the rest of London, but the main reason being this Gem of a B&B. I must have stayed in all the... More

The lady was very kind and helpfull relating to the booking, but as I usually book online I had to spend a lot more time to finalize, between mails, phonecall and it might seem silly I had to search for a cachpoint machine to get cash, not simple as Booking.com or similar. As I travel for business I also need... More

Thank you for your review. My apologies for the trouble you went through to book. We are a small family run b&b, preferring personal communication to big booking agencies. I trust you are in receipt of your invoice now, my apologies for the delay. Thank you for posting the photographs, its a shame the one of New Cross Gate station... More

I stayed here for two nights with my two children. We were visiting Newcrossgate for a family party and had chosen to stay in what appeared to be a luxury bnb as opposed to camping out at family or friends. The host was welcoming and the bed was comfortable but I was disappointed that the basic amenities didn't meet my... More

Below is a transcribe of the booking communication between this guest and ourselves. I told her the apartment was best suited for her with 2 children, but she chose our spare guest room and I clearly stated that it was a shared bathroom. I put an extra bed in for her, I greeted her with tea and juice and welcomed... More

Good basis for visiting London, also with kids. The stay for four nights with the Campbells was very friendly and uncomplicated. Not only we as parents, also our kids ( at the age of 9 and 12) felt well in the clean, lovely furnished location. The opulent breakfast was home-made and healthy with fresh fruits prepared. The location is very... More

As we got there, we were welcomed into a cozy, beautiful, English house. Mrs. Lydia was more than kind and the sleep we had in that big bed was one of the most beautiful parts of our stay to Telegraph B&B! And the morning breakfast was full of delicious fresh fruits, yogurts, preserves, croissants and raisins bread. but, most of... More

I stay at Telegraph Hill often because of its close proximity to Goldsmiths, from my first stay I knew it was going to be home away from home. Lydia and Zack are warm and welcoming, and both ensure that all your needs are well taken care off. The Bed and Breakfast is clean, decorated beautifully in a shabby chic style... More

This is such a great Bed & Breakfast! We personally didn't want to stay in the ultra-tiny rooms of the hotels we were finding online in London. Telegraph Hill truly helps you experience life in a London home - not the artificial environment of a hotel. The B & B was super clean, decorated tastefully, had a private and spacious... More

Telegraph was a fantastic experience. I was visiting New cross for a exam and Lydia couldn't have been more accommodating. Perfect location- walking distance to all local attractions. Rooms were hotel quality and EXTREMELY clean which was very attractive for a fussy guest. Breakfast was freshly prepared and tasty. Great service, great location, great price. This will not disappoint.
