Welcome to Parklands B&B! - My name is Sally Chilton and I am a professional Host. I have been in hospitality most of my working life. I worked in wine bars and chalets during the 70s, I became a private chef for a number of celebrities and Merchant Banks during the 80s. I first opened up my home to guests coming to London to study English in the early 90s. It is at this time that I started B&B full time, since then I have hosted thousands of people from around the world. On average I have over 900 people a year walk through my front door. I like people, I like hosting, I like hospitality - it is what I enjoying doing and it is something that I m good at. We are not the cheapest nor the most expensive, nor are we right in the centre of the city. But what we do offer is a warm and welcoming environment for guests to enjoy and relax during their stay. All of the rooms have been individually styled and furnished, with kingsize beds, flat screen TVs as well as their own bathroom, two are EnSuite and one is a Private bathroom. We have complinmentary WiFi throughout the whole house as well as an extensive DVD collection that all guests are welcome to browse. When it comes to breakfast we always provide a Home-Style continental as well as a cooked option that can be anything from: Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, French Toast with hot blueberries and/or maple syrup or sausage, bacon and eggs. We always serve yogurt, fresh fruit salad or a bowl of fruit, as well as a vegetarian option. We are very flexible when it comes to fitting in we our guests needs, for instance if you wish to swap breakfast for dinner one night during your stay, we are very happy to accommodate. If our guests have an early start we always provide them with a breakfast to go: a slice of pie or cake, a sandwich, fruit and a drink. There is always a homemade cake or dessert on the side for all our guests to enjoy when they arrive back in the evenings after a long day of travelling, working or sightseeing. If you are like me, and sometimes a coffee or tea in the evening doesn't quite cut it then our guests can have a glass of wine or beer or if your feeling a little adventurous then why not sample one of the many Gins, Vodkas and Whiskeys that we have on our shelf. Having been a professional host for many years, I am always putting my own stamp on things - for instance we make our own Marmalade and Jams, as well as Limoncello. We believe in efficiency and not wasting food, we source our produce as locally as possible: our breads come from a mix of speciality and commercial bakeries, our milk is delivered three times a week from a farm in Kent and our bacon and sausages comes from the local butcher. I love London, it is for me the most exciting city in the world. There is always something happening 24/7 365 days a year! We provide our guests with up to date information about what to do locally, with our own in house booklet. We also write a bi-monthly update all about London - so that our guests can hit the ground running and find that something a little bit different that they may not have known or thought about, when planning their travels. It is Simply Hospitality! PS. We also have two canine companions: a Jack Russell and a Cava Jack. They're both very friendly! Transport: Our closest tube station is Tooting Bec (Northern Line), which is roughly 15 minutes walk away. There are three local buses that are also available - 319 Streatham - Clapham Junction - Chelsea, the 249 Clapham South - Streatham - Anerly or the G1 which takes a rather random journey through south London, via St Georges Hospital and is 30 seconds from our front door.

I had a very nice time with Sally and her family, they looked after me very well and the breakfast was very tasty. They gave me many hints and tips which made my first time in London very special. Next time I host you in Morocco. Shokran, Issam

We have stayed at Parklands on many occasions since December 2017, the latest being for New Year 2018. As always, a warm welcome from the hosts Sally, Chris, Paul and Suzanna...not forgetting Purdy, the four legged resident and Queen of the household. The accommodation is

Stayed at the parklands b&b whilst on a visit to London for a concert. The place was beautiful, very clean, very comfortable and we were welcomed immediately by Sally, the lovely owner who was very warm and made us feel like we were at home away from home. Will definitely be

We loved that B&B from the very first moment we arrived. It is the best B&B we´ve ever been. We stayed at Parklands B&B with Sally, Chris, Paul, Suzanna and Purdy 4 times since 2012, and we would never stay any where else in London. In 2012 we were struck by how welcoming they
