I have been to London several times now and absolutely adore staying at The Main House. Nestled away in Notting Hill, it is just a stone's throw away from Portobello Road, lined with its bustling shops, ambitious vendors, and spectators from around the globe. For your convenience the night bus stops a block from The Main House's front doorstep, there... More

Located in Knotting Hill, a most central location in London, Caroline was the perfect hostess. She arranged for a driver to meet us at the Euro-Star. The cost was less than a cab and our driver was most helpful assisting us out of the train station and on to The Main House with Caroline waiting out in front. The Main... More

I arrived at The Main House to a warm and personal welcome and discovered I'd found a cosy and elegant home that became my home for a few days in London while I was there on business. Arriving from Paris, where rooms are tiny, my room on the first floor of The Main House was enormous and as soon as... More

The generic conveniences of a hotel stay fall very short of the charm, style and comfort of a stay at the Main House in the Notting Hill district of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Situated in the bohemian heart of West London, the Main House is only steps away from many excellent cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques. Notting... More

This a gem of a b&b in my opinion, in the best neighbourhood in London. Unusually large rooms/bathrooms for London. Super friendly staff, especially Caroline who ensured collection from airport and gave great tips. Not a single negative thing to say about it!

We spent eight nights in this wonderful boutique hotel in the centre of Notting Hill. Our room on the first floor was very spacious, light and tastefully decorated. Caroline was the perfect host and was full of helpful advice on local places to eat and see. Tea was served in bed every morning which was a great treat.

Most hotels in Notting Hill have grand entrees hiding small rooms that haven't been updated since the seventies. The Main House, however, isn't recognizable as a hotel from the outside. It's three rooms are spacious and they are not filled to the brim with bric a brac. All the necessary things are provided but not in a luxurious way. The... More

This was a perfect place for my week long stay in London. My room was lovely, large and very comfortable, and the ensuite was huge, complete with its own gorgeous chaise on which to recline. Caroline was a wonderful host, giving great tips and advice on what to see and do in and about London. A big treat was the... More

My wife and I spent eight nights at The Main House in late May. Caroline and her staff were wonderful and it was fun to chat about London and England and world events. We got some terrific tips on local spots in the area and the city that were well worth it. The local Indian restaurant recommendation was terrific.The room... More

Let me begin by stating that the main house is a very interesting establishment. It is off the beaten path in Notting Hill on a residential street, close to many quaint shops and restaurants. It is .5 miles from the Notting Hill tube, thus not close to the big London sights. It is an immersion into life as a native.... More
