Have stayed with Josephine before and have been happy but not this time. For whatever reason she was very inhospitable, very bad-mannered and very curt .. I maintained courteous behaviour but it didn''t improve her behaviour. The B & B itself has fallen away in acceptability for cleanliness. On reading other reviews I believe I must have got her on...

Great location, close to bus, train etc. unfortunately the host - Josephine was inflexible, rude and made my mother and myself feel rather unwelcome and more an inconvenience than a guest. Certainly do not recommend.

It was a very good time in Josephine b&b. Nice place to stay in London, in a very elegant and quiet area of the town, near fulham road. The house is clear and clean, The room cute and comfortable. Very good the breakfast. the value is excellent.

We recently stayed at Josephine's B & B in the wonderful location of Chelsea. Josephine has an excellent knowledge of all the bus and tube routes (all within walking distance) to every cultural event and location in London. She provided a healthy continental breakfast (with excellent coffee) each morning and was a very gracious host in all respects.

Josephine provided a wonderful experience for this single traveller. The decor was elegant, spacious and comfortable. Josephine herself was welcoming, with great tips for getting about London and what was available. Travelling alone, it was always nice to share a friendly conversation and the activities of the day over a sustaining breakfast. Location is perfect with a few minutes walk... More

Basic B&B with good location to Chelsea and public transport. Easy walking distance to parks etc. Breakfast disappointing for a UK B&B, a choice of 3 cereals, and a slice of toast, what happened to a good old cooked English breakfast? My bed was very uncomfortable and the house in general could do with a good clean.
