Stayed three nights at Barclay House at the end of June when we were down from Scotland to go to the tennis at Wimbledon. We picked the perfect place to stay. Charlotte gave us such a lovely welcome and was so helpful and friendly. The room we were in was at the back of the house and was very stylishly... More

If you’re looking for an extremely comfortable, quiet room in London within a short 5 minute walk of a tube station, then look no further than Barclay House. We stayed for 8 nights in May and knew we had made the right choice when Charlotte welcomed us very early on a Sunday morning after our longhaul flight from Australia. Holding... More

Luggage racks(stands) are the key to traveling light and living out of a suitcase with ease; so glad you appreciated two of them! Thanks for the compliments and the useful details for future guests. More

My family is relocating to London and we wanted to stay in Fulham -- the area where we were focusing our search for housing. We chose the Barclay House largely due to its web presence, which showed a B&B that combined modern luxury with convenience, and we are happy that we did. We took two rooms -- a large double...

What a treat it was to enjoy some very thoughtful piano playing and diligent practice each morning. A budding star in our midst! As George and Ira Gershwin so aptly composed and wrote, 'Who could ask for anything more?' More

Barclay House is a sumptuous retreat to return to each day, after exploring London. Beautiful bedrooms which are well designed and luxurious and thoughtfully equipped with everything you'd need for a short stay. Outside the room a well stocked mini kitchen provided us with our 'breakfast on the go' each morning. Great coffee and croissants! Charlotte, the host, was friendly... More

We are so glad that you were able to discover some new places to explore and eat; Bishops Park and Palace offers tranquil gardens, the King Henry VII-restored great vine and a laid-back Georgian tea room with outside tables on the expansive lawn. As well, an AA Gill-lauded meal at Manuka Kitchen, just around the corner from us, is well... More

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

To get a right acommodation in London with a right Price for Value as you know is quite difficult. In this B&B you have a very good solution. A very nice and new room with bathroom for a reasonable Price. Moreover this house is in a very good neightbourhood which is Chealsea/Fulham. Close to the Chelsea FC Stadium. Close to... More

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

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.
