This B&B in the Kennington Park area of the South Bank is a spotless new total renovation of a huge 1700's-era townhouse; it's a bit stark and sterile in decor, but I'll take that over shabby any day. (Our only objection: rooms so minimally furnished that there were few places to just put your stuff down; we longed for a cheap Ikea side table or even a folding chair!) Beds new and comfy, a flat-screen TV in each of our rooms in the top-floor suite, and plenty of hot water, and a decent enough breakfast buffet (supermarket pastry and cereal but fresh tea/coffee) served with brisk, efficient friendliness by our hostess, a City legal-eagle who lives next door with her family and still finds time to look after guests' needs. There's also a pleasant garden for guests, and our aerie had a tiny balcony AND a view (just) of the London Eye at night! Location was fine, steps from the Kennington Park tube stop on Northern line, and the immediate neighborhood was diverse and pleasant and full of interesting London commuters instead of tourists. Thanks to a recommendation from our hostess, we tried the nearby 'gastropub,' Tommyfield, and had just about the best meal of our 2-week stay.
