After I had spent some time on hotel booking website to find an accomodation in London, I was close to giving up. Other travelers´ negative reviews were not encouraging to go for affordable hotels. Then I tried googlemaps, searched for B&Bs in Fulham and the second one I looked at was this gem. GEM! The photos on the Barclay House´s... More

Elle magazine trends the height of sophistication in fashion and style; in December, their editor featured our Barclay House London B&B as a 'pairing' for B&B and brunch at Manuka Kitchen (5 stars from the coveted reviewer AA Gill.

My daughter lives next to Stamford Bridge (where Chelsea FC plays). This terrific B&B was only a few minutes away, and also only a few minutes away from the Fulham Broadway tube station, and from Brompton Cemetery (good for running). When my wife and I arrived, I knocked tentatively on the front door, as there is no signage that says... More

These wonderful guests were full of seasonal good cheer and tech know-how. Overnight, their little elves slid down the chimneys with care, determined to optimise our secure WiFi affair. A stocking full of improvements awaits guests in 2015. Many thanks indeed. More

This LA-chic review matches the latest, just-mentioned accolade in Elle magazine's 'insider tips for staying and eating in London'; Barclay House London B&B and Manuka Kitchen are the new favourite pairing for a great treat all around.

I was looking for a convenient stay close to Fulham Road for a conference in the statium of Chelsea FC. There are some hotels directly at the stadium or close by, which are either overpriced or ugly. So I started looking for a B&B. The Barclay House is perfectly located if you travel from Gatwick. You can use EasyBus and... More

Business guests, like this recent guest. are usually traveling on their own, so they appreciate all the more the small things that make your stay very, very comfortable, as well as the super close access to the tube, London black cabs or pre-ordered mini-cabs.

The Barclay House is a wonderful and comfortable B & B located just outside of London in the Fulham neighborhood. The rooms are designer decorated and nicely stocked with "travel necessities".

Glad you loved it here, in central/southwest London, above the River Thames and just down Fulham Road from South Ken and Harrods. London is big and has many 'centers', shopping areas, tourist areas and key neighbourhoods to experience. We're glad you appreciated the excellent cafes, pubs and well-reviewed restaurants right around the corner from us at 21 Barclay Road SW6. More
