A lovely house, friendly & family run, very comfortable and was the icing on my London visit. The hosts were knowedgefull about London & made a fantastic breakfast that was enjoyed with a variety of choice and a quirky selection of tableware. Definitely started our day brightly.

My sister booked two rooms for myself and my partner, mother and partner for two nights for her wedding weekend. The guesthouse appears to be very nice from the pictures on the website and was near to the wedding in Highgate so we were looking forward to a relaxing stay...

There are so many untruths in this review that I am not even going to attempt to deal with them individually.Suffice to say one wonders the real motivation of this young couple who didn't mention that they quitely walked out without paying on departure until his mother called them back.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, convenient...

Had two nights at the Ossian. It's a lovely, quirky place to stay. The hosts were wonderful.the breakfasts were great. The room was really comfortable. We don't usually stay in guesthouses, preferring hotels, but with places like the Ossian, we may change our choices in future.
