This B&B is Great, I stayed here with my bezzie mate for the Walkerstalker convention as its so close to everything. I can't believe people can be so up themselves in their moaning reviews! Its a no airs and graces traditional B&B. The rooms are clean with fresh clean bedding beds are very soft. Nice little kitchenette with the regular... More

They brought breakfast to rooms but becausr of the smell we definetly couldnt eat there at all. Toilet was in the shared corridor - which they didnt mentioned. Wouldnt go there again and... More

This accommodation is very close to food and bus stops which is a bonus. The room was up 3 flights of stairs and there is no lift so it is not good for disabled people. The room was neat and tidy and we shared a bathroom with two other rooms, but never saw anyone else. Breakfast was served every morning... More

While we were very pleased with the location, that was about it. The room was fairly noisy, both from the street and form somebody playing a guitar in the middle of the night. The room regularly smelled like slightly off fish. The kitchen sink and toilet leak and one night the ceiling above our bed started leaking on the bed.... More

I stayed here on Saturday night (1st Feb) after having had a few drinks and hence not being able to drive home I looked for somewhere at late notice to lay my head for the night. Oh dear....besides the owner taking 20 mins to find a room and a key...blame the expedia app for that. The room was tragic...a very... More

We booked a twin but were given a double for our first night, this was an honest mistake and was resolved very quickly which was great. The breakfast wasn't brilliant but was at least edible and gave us something to start the day with. The woman who runs the place was very nice with us and it's also in a... More

The negative reviews are quite appalling. For the price we paid we had a very large room, clean bedding, cooking facilities, free wifi and of course a fantastic breakfast served by friendly staff. Bea was very welcoming and friendly. Her staff were very courteous. Our room was cleaned and bed turned down daily (really didnt expect this). For the price... More

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
