We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend to watch some gigs over at the O2 Forum and to visit ZSL London Zoo during the day. The staff were very pleasant and polite and our room was comfortable and clean. Had basic amenities such kettle, iron/ironing board, TV, fridge, tea/coffee etc. There was also plenty of storage space to unpack... More

I stayed at the Castle Bar B&B for 2 nights in late April, 2016 and of the premises and staff itself, I can only say it was a good experience. I was booked in quickly by Nelson (I believe) when I arrived and taken to my room. The room itself was on the top floor of this 4 storey building.... More

Very nice people! The room was spacious and perfect for our type of visit. I would happily stay here again. Good value for money. Also breakfast was offered each day! Very clean and comfortable. Close to all major transport routes and easy to find.

When I entered, a little earlier than announced, a man opende while contiously talking in the telephone. He pointed to a chair, in which I sat ten minutes while he contiued to talk. Actually, this is not a very warm welcome. You feel ignored. Eventually, I registered and paid before i was shown my room on the first floor. The... More

Clean and conveniently placed b&b for gigs in Camden. Decent price and perfect for a place to lay your head after a few beers at a gig! Didn't sample the breakfast as we slept in, and didn't have a drink there either, but the bar looked decent. End of the day, you get what you pay for, I wouldn't take... More

I stayed here for two nights. Check-in process was quick and staff were friendly and helpful. I thought the breakfast choice was good and enjoyed a cooked breakfast on my first morning and then a fresh omelette on my second morning. The first night I stayed in a single room. Upon entering, it was very hot, and had a strange... More

I stayed at the B&B for 3 nights as I was working in London. The B&B is about 0.5 miles from the tube station, which is approximately 10 mins walk. I stayed in the only single room. The room was very basic but was tidy. The decor was very tired and the ropom faced the main road. There was no... More

I ended up on a trip to London on my own for a gig in Highgate. I looked in to this bed and breakfast as it was only half an hours walk from the venue and also from Camden in the opposite direction. After travelling and walking I went in to the bar which was clean, cosy and nicely done... More
