In all of our travels, whether for business or pleasure, we had never before experienced such warm hospitality as at The Lilac Door. One cannot say enough about Jane, the most lovely hostess on the planet. Everything is done with love here, from the chocolate and tea waiting in the wonderfully comfortable light-filled room over-looking her lovely garden, the large bathroom stocked with herbal bath, body and hair care, to the most sumptuous and truly 6-star breakfast offerings, including all of the most thoughtful and generous extras such as detailed public transport info., offering to drive us to the nearby station early in the morning, and Jane even printed out an article for us to read about the wine fair that we were attending!
Dulwich Village is a 15 minute walk (walking slowly through the beautiful Belair Park) where one can enjoy a lovely dinner "al fresco" - there are several "boutique" restaurants to choose from, and a characterful traditional pub. It's wonderful for decompressing after a day in Central London.
The Lilac Door is, by far, our choice home-away-from-home in London.
