My wife, daughter and I were there from late December through mid-January 2016 and couldn´t be happier. Everything was as expected: excellent. We prize warmth, knowledge and sensibility, and Charlotte had them all; she always helped us, when needed—her assistance in pointing us in the right direction was tops. The rooms at Barclay House are very well designed & appointed;... More

My wife and I stayed at Charlotte's for 5 nights in October and found everything to be first rate. We were in the front room, which had ample space, and both the bedroom and bathroom were attractive and well laid-out. We found the breakfast to be perfectly adequate and the coffee and tea selections were excellent. If a heartier breakfast... More

We spent a long weekend at Barclay House. The room was comfy, very tasteful decoration and furniture. Breakfast (cold) was nice, had variety. The house is in a smaller street that was calm and silent over the weekend, but very close (about 5-8 mins walk) to underground and restaurants. The owner was nice and helpful, we would be happy to... More

Barclay House is a great location for both leisure and business travelers. I had a convention at Excel and the longer commute was well worth it. Perfect comfort, great value and a gem of a restaurant/cocktail bar (Manuka) nearby. Look no further - if you want a quite stay and still have direct tube access this is the place to... More

Manuka Kitchen is such a gem; guests often eat several times there! Next time, I hope you'll be able to have brunch at Manuka--to-die-for eggs Benedict and lots of vegetarian options. It was a pleasure to host you here. As seasoned travellers you know best what people want when staying in London. We are so glad that we ticked all... More

Wow, these were jogging enthusiasts who were amazed at the easy jaunt up to Hyde Park and surrounds. They packed in a lot over a 5 night visit. We hope that the drive to Snowdonia was a great success. These guests have travelled all over Europe; we picked up some excellent tips from them for our next trip to Istanbul... More

These guests were very enthusiastic about the famous BP Portrait Award exhibition as well as other recommendations from us, including using the famous Nr 11 red bus to see so many sites across London for £1.50. They loved Manuka Kitchen, too. Thank you so much for the little present that you left us. More
