I stayed for 7 nights in a double room. It was 60 pounds per night, but it was worth the price. Modern rooms with good bed, chest of drawers, 2 chairs and small table, small TV, water cooker with instant coffee or tea, brand new shower, good toilet with sink. Daily cleaning included! Breakfast was excellent. Apart from what was... More

Take National Rail to Penge East station and it's about a 5 minute walk from there. Breakfast is very good, made to order and there is plenty of it. The man who cooks it is wonderful, so is the owner. Coffee, tea, and biscuits (cookies) provided in the room. Garden room 10 was very quiet and peaceful. Only downside was... More

There is a decent wifi signal throughout the property, the bathroom we had was perfect it had shower with a power and waterfall head. There was aload of street parking around the property and...

B and B in beautiful surroundings managed outstanding well by the owner Frances Roberts with assistance from her family. Good transport links to central London. Especially recommended are the garden rooms leading on to the beautiful, restful and calming garden with its water features. Thoroughly deserving of its four star status.

This was our first trip to London, so Francis and her adult children were the first innkeepers that we experienced. The three of them were very cordial and helpful to us during our stay! Our room, #11, was clean and bright. However, during our visit the weather was very warm, and our room was HOT as it did not have... More

I stayed at Melrose House for two nights each week from December 2013 to the end of June 2014, whilst working in Beckenham. I stayed in the majority of the rooms over the 7 months I worked in London and found them all to be very comfortable, they are well colour coordinated with good quality bed linen. The rooms are...

So to say I will never recommend this place is the very truth. The second we got there, France made us feel unwelcome and like we were a burden on her. We got to our room which was very small and I got yelled at my Frances for dragging my suitcase up the flight of stairs and down even though... More
