The room was small and stuffy as there was no ventilation and I was too scared to leave my window open because the area seemed a bit dodgy. But I was pleased with my stay as it was clean, tidy, and not too far from the city. I only stayed for one night whilst backpacking so it served me well.

1) the rooms are super small and we barely have room to out our luggage anywhere. There are big pieces of furniture in the room which makes it that much smaller. You can brush your teeth in the sink and wash your hands in the shower all while sitting on the toilet -- thats how small the washroom is. I... More

Room was tired and dated....scared to open windows as the the frames were rotten. I know it is London but this place needs the hotel inspector. If this had been a weekend away with my girlfriend rather then business I would have walked away. Best thing is that it was only one night and plenty of places to go down... More

We booked into this guest house for one night to go to a concert in nearby Clapham Common. The room was very small with barely any room to move around the bed. The bathroom was claustrophobic and difficult to move around in. There were only two pillows on the double bed and the room as a whole looked very tired... More

The guest house was about 15 minutes walk from the tube station down quiet residential streets. It was located on a main road next to McDonalds but the only noise I heard were planes. The reception allowed us to check in a bit early as our room was ready which was useful. Our room was small but adequate. It was... More

The staff were the plus point and I guess I would use it again if I was down that way. We selected it as we were doing the London to Brighton bike ride. It is a gr8 location for this. Rooms are warm in the summer and so the windows have to be open which means city noise through the... More

I stayed at this Guest House for 4 nights in April 2014 and paid about US $285.00. The front desk personnel were all very friendly and helpful to me, particularly when I asked questions about buses and London Tube (my first 4 days in London). Bus Services - five minutes away from the Guest House is the stop for Bus... More

I stayed here with several friends for two nights while we enjoyed a weekend in London. The rooms are spread across two Georgian buildings next door to each other. My first impression was the lack of space in and around the rooms and the pretty straightforward state of them overall - don't expect fancy touches or even tea/coffee facilities for... More

Stayed in this hotel because we had a very early start on a working Wednesday morning. Warm welcome and very clean modern room. It was next to entrance so a bit noisy. The hotel has no restaurant but room had tea/coffee making facilities. Thedre is a McDonalds next door and other eating options nearby.
