“Superb apartments - will use again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

I spent three days working at Finsbury Park (two days) and Oxford Circus (one day), spending two nights at these apartments. Getting to both destinations was easy from Palmers Green station - a direct train to Finsbury Park and a connection to the Victoria Line made travelling into London very east. From Palmers Green to Oxford Street took just 30 minutes. The apartments are very modern, very clean and very large with all the facilities you would require. There is a Waitrose and a Morrisons close by as well as as a very large range of other shops. Customer service on arrival was efficient and friendly. the apartment consisted of a very large lounge/dining/kitchen area with full hob and oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Tea and coffee sachets as well as milk cartons were provided. The bedroom had a king size bed and a small safe. The bathroom was very large with a bath and shower above. There was also a washer/drier. Despite being close to the town centre, the apartment was very quiet and even with the windows wide open, sleep as not disturbed. Overall I thoroughly recommend these apartments and will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: No air conditioning, but apartments are not on the ground floor, so windows can be left open at nigh...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

This appartment was perfect for our family of four - two double rooms, a spacious kitchen/living room, a family bathroom and an en suite. The kitchen was well-equipped, the beds were comfortable, and it was great to have free secure parking. Everything was clean and in good working order.

Palmers Green is nothing special, but the train station is less than five minutes walk from the apartment. We left the car in the carpark and took the train into central London each day. It is possible to buy a reasonably priced off-peak railcard after 9.30, and we arrived in central London by 10.15 every day.

I would definitely stay in Lodge Drive Apartments again. There are certainly more glamorous areas, but they come at a much higher price AND you have to pay for parking and the London congestion charge.

Room Tip: We had the top floor apartment, which was very quiet and even had a small balcony overlooking the ba...

The apartment was just what we expected. It was modern, clean and spacious. We really enjoyed our 3 day stay . The only negative was finding it. It took us a while but it was worth it. I would definitely recommend it for a very nice reasonable place to stay.

Had a one bedroom apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, huge living room, TV/DVD, a washer-dryer (all in one machine!). Really had plenty of room to stretch out -- it felt more like home than a hotel. If someone wants to sleep, you can be in the living room and not bother them. Free wi-fi on a secure network (they give you the password).

The apartment was cleaned and linens changed midway through stay, and we were told if we wanted fresh towels just ask. Very friendly folks - Peter & staff - provided information on local stores/restaurants and last train times. But keep in mind there is no "front desk." Someone will meet you to check in, but after that it's like a regular apartment building; you need the key to let yourself in (and you drop the key in a box upon checkout, should no one be there).

Location is off Green Lanes, where you will find pretty much anything you need. Alfred Herring pub is a nice locals place with good food and ales.

Five minute walk to First Capital Connect commuter rail which goes to Moorgate weekdays, and Kings Cross nights and weekends. Lots of crowded 3-car trains, so we found it better to take bus 329 or 121 ten minutes to Wood Green tube station on Piccadilly Line.

A little bit of street noise, but if you close the windows you should be OK.

No, it's not Central London. But rather than spend a fortune on some grungy hotel in Earl's Court or Paddington, this is well worth the little extra effort it takes to get to. Would not hesitate to recommend or return.

Well finished, well equipped apartments with great beds and quality futniture. staff are friendly and, although the location is a bit of a way out for C London, the extra travel time is more than offset by the space and facilities. You CAN get this price for a hotel closer to town but that would be for a single room - not a fully equipped apartnment. 2 mins ot train station,30 mins to C london with a supermarket 2 mins away and a range of take aways. think this place is a hidden gem. just bear in mind the min stay is three nights

I've never written any reviews, even though i always mean to, but i can't pass off the opportunity of reviewing this apartment.

Stayed in a " bedroom apartment with my Sister, Niece and my 2 young children. Lovely and spacious rooms with comfy beds. The power shower in the master bedroom was amazing.. Free WIFI was a plus as i could check my emails.

The apartment also offered free parking in a gated car park which was nice as our friends could park whenever they came visiting.
Wonderful staff, and Peter is a real gentleman

Everything was in place, from the dish washer, washing machine, pots and pans, fridge/freezer, washing up liquid, the whole works.

Location is perfect as it was just a 1min walk to Macdonalds, 3mins to KFC, loads of restaurants on Green lanes 2mins to the Lodge drive bus stop with bus 329 running almost every 2mins to woodgreen station, and the bus W6 to Southgate where there is a huge Asda. Travelling time to Asda is under 15mins.

All in all, we had a wonderful and will definitely be returning.
