We really enjoyed our stay, very spacious rooms and great add ons, like a local handy with UK sim card, it even had a few pounds left on it, a thank you from the previous guest, so we left some on for the next one. Helpful advice on where to go and how to get there from the ever bubbly... More

What a hidden gem, tucked away in the streets of Knotting Hill. The Main House is an amazing value hidden among the locals. Caroline herself, is like having a personal tour guide of London. Her knowledge and recommendations were FANTASIC. Although we were sad to leave, we cannot wait to visit Caroline in the Main House again. Lisa, Christine, Meredith... More

We've stayed at The Main House in Notting Hill twice and it hits just the right tone for us. It is well located just a block off the Portobello Road within a walk of several tube stations and numerous excellent pubs, restaurants and shops. Our room was spacious and clean with comfortable bed and large sitting area, the latter quite... More

This independent B&B is situated right in the middle of Bohemian Notting Hill, a mere stone‘s throw from Portobello Road, but all the same, it is perfectly quiet and restful – the ideal pied-à-terre for the sophisticated traveller, who wishes for light, lofty rooms, furnished in good taste (meaning antiques), with big comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, and who requires, above...

The Main House in Notting Hill was recommended to us by our friends who live around the corner – their Australian family had stayed there previously and were very happy. If you are anything like our family, we value location above most things and don’t like to compromise on quality. The Main House is understated luxury at its best—the position... More

At London Heathrow we were picked up by the driver booked for us by The Main House. The plane had been delayed by one hour, but he greeted us with a friendly smile and helped with the luggage. Same impeccable service on our departure at a very reasonable price. Caroline and staff are perfect hosts. She welcomed us to an... More

The reason to stay at the Main House is Caroline, the striking owner with a terrific life story, if only she and you could have the time to share it. My husband's first trip to London didn't allow for girl-kibbutzing, alas. Caroline is organized, in command and chooses lovely staff like Becca from N.Z. The photos are exact, everything impeccably... More

On our third trip to London we discovered the most charming place to stay. The Main House was a perfect "home away from home" while we explored the city. We enjoyed chatting with Caroline and took her advice and did the "Palace to Palace Perambulation" when we arrived. The quaint and charming house is filled with comfortable antiques and is... More

The Main House, an excelent place to stay for some days in the beautiful and quiet district of Notting Hill. We stayed in the beautiful French Suite, in the top floor of this typical Victorian House, very confortable and cosy, decorated with very good taste ( one bedroom and a living room, with tea and coffe available at any time)...

The Main House is a wonderful home away from home. I've stayed there twice now (both times in the first floor suite) and I had a great time on both trips. It's perfectly situated in Notting Hill, around the corner from The Ledbury, an amazing restaurant, and Granger & Co. (ideal for breakfast), and a very short distance from Portobello... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
