I stayed at Telegraph Hill B&B whilst on a work trip. It was the opposite of staying in a characterless hotel and probably cost me less! Instead I was treated like a friend, had a delicious breakfast in the family kitchen drinking tea out of artisan cups, and had a beautiful room with high victorian ceilings, indian throws and huge...

We stayed in the self contained apartment as a family of three, it was a great size, really comfortable and well supplied with everything we needed to make our own meals. The overall feel was very warm and cosy yet stylish, with lovely touches such as the patchwork blanket on the sofa and antique lace curtains that made being there... More

This place is unique! Forget the typical b and b, this is something else entirely. What service.! Firstly, I got lost, and ended up walking past it, to the top of the hill. Lydia jumped in the car and picked me up: good start! The house is a family home, no formality at all, just a warm welcome. The guest... More

This was just what we were looking for when visiting London to attend our daughter's graduation. The property is in a calm location above the hustle and bustle of New Cross Road. A couple of minutes walk beyond the house and you are at the top of Telegraph Hill with nice views across London. The room is sufficiently large for... More

If you're travelling with a young child, look no further! This B&B has a self catering apartment that meets all your needs. Good bedroom, bathroom and kitchen; spacious living room for our 14 months old son to play around. We placed his cot (provided by Lydia) in the living room, let him fall asleep on our bed and transferred him... More

If you are arriving in London at heathrow, be aware that the staff in the train station don't really seem to know how to get to New Cross Gate. After two people gave us wrong directions, and a third very rude man basically told us to get lost ( he was working at the " info" window...), the fourth fellow... More

Staying at a b&b is so much more personal then at a regular hotel. I stayed at TelegraphHill for a week-end with a friend of mine. When we came, Lydia met us and showed us to our room- which was a quite large bedroom with a lovely bed (seriously, I slept like a princess) and we had a large bathroom... More

I chose this B&B based on its proximity to Goldsmiths as well as other reviews. The room upstairs was comfortable and clean, the breakfast great. I even got to see a couple of urban foxes playing in the garden. (I wasn't startled, as my son had told me about the foxes.) Lydia was a wonderful host. When our son graduates... More

I picked this place because it was the nearest to stay close to a friend of mine and the best choice I could have made travelling as a single woman. I felt welcome and home from the start and the room in the attic was fantasic and I loved the view over the garden. The bed was large and very... More
