Great location at Fullham Broadway with close bus and train links. Our hosts Charlotte and Adrian were very welcoming and helpful, including pick up and drop off at Heathrow for less than the cost of a taxi. Reasonably priced given the location and quality of accommodation. Comfortable bed and clean, modern room and ensuite. Thanks to Charlotte and Adrian for... More

Recently returned from a 2 night stay at Barclay House. The rooms are beautiful and Charlotte is extremely helpful and friendly. Conveniently located a couple of minutes walk from the tube. Great breakfast facilities. We will be returning!

Just spent three lovely days at Barclay House. As this was our first experience staying in a b/b we weren't sure what to expect but Charlotte and Adrian were very friendly and welcoming hosts! Having our own keys to come and go as we pleased was an added bonus! The room was small but beautifully presented. The location was ideal... More

Many thanks for the honest tips for future guests staying here. These guests were lucky to have applied for and obtained tickets to the Wimbledon tennis so they loved being in our central location but on the direct tube line to the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. Thank you for the accolades regarding our compact luxury guest rooms.... More

This lovely home was an oasis of calm in a very busy city. The room was charming and comfortable and our host was very welcoming and helpful with travel/touring tips. Excellent privacy and quiet for a B&B!

Thanks for the compliments and helpful insight for future guests. Noel Coward's 'Relative Values' is a must-see for any fans of proper theatre. And try Nonna's restaurant across the road for fabulous Sicilian food and freshly made, reasonably priced gelato. More

Just back from two weeks overseas. Spent three nights at The Barclay House in Fulham Broadway. It was a lovely B+B, quite quiet with a wonderful bed which was much appreciated after wandering about London. The room is small, but nicely laid off with lots of cupboard space. And plenty of light especially for reading. The bath is great -... More

Lovely guests who were super organised and travelled very light. They 'walked their socks off' as we say. For a bit of a rest, they jumped on the buses, especially the Number 11 red bus--takes you right across London on your Oyster Card, so no need to pay for an expensive tour bus. More

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay during a recent trip to London and were so glad to have found The Barclay House! The room was beautiful, clean, large enough and comfortable with en suite bathroom and all amenities; hair dryer, power converters, slippers and robes! Breakfast was always ready for us in the morning when... More

We loved this Bed and Breakfast, it was perfect for our needs. Super close to the Fullham Broadway stop and easy to get to from the airports. It was very quiet (there are only 3 rooms), there was privacy, it was very comfortable, and the rooms were beautiful. There's a never-ending supply of restaurants and shops right outside the door....

The rooms were small but clean, great location and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting London. The hosts were friendly the only criticism would be clean towels more often and a bit quieter check in when there are late night guests arriving. Otherwise would definately go back.

Very glad that you enjoyed your stay. I've changed 2 things now based on your comments. 1) Sorry that we did not change towels often enough for you; an oversight I think. Based on this review we have now set up a small basket of six extra bath towels for guests to access. We'll also place 2 or 3 flannels... More
