Barclay House was exactly as described in the promotional materials. The host was very friendly and helpful. He took us on a brief tour of the neighborhood on our arrival, pointing out interesting sites and providing reviews of local restaurants, all within a short walk from the B&B. We stayed in the King room, which was excellent in terms of... More

This was our first visit to London and we found the bed and breakfast very easily from the underground station . The room was spotlessly clean and nicely appointed. The breakfasts were not much to speak of even for continental but this would not prevent us from staying there if we were to visit again. A nice part of London... More

Breakfast was simple, but filling. Nice and quiet and area had nice shops and restaurants with a park across the street. They provide lots of information about lots of things to do and see in London. I really liked my room.

Solo travellers are very welcome here and we've thought of many small touches that help with their stay from offering tubes of travel wash to providing secure WiFi, umbrellas and ponchos (rain macs). Glad you liked the airpulse rainshower and the overall comfort and design of your guest room. Thanks for the compliments. More

Our room was beautiful, very well-appointed, conveniently located within easy walking distance to the tube and bus stops, as well as grocery stores and restaurants. The management couldn't have been more helpful and were crucial when my husband needed to be taken to the emergency room of the nearby hospital. Our host arranged for a car to take us and... More

These very energetic and well organised guests had coveted tickets to the outdoor opera at Glyndebourne, took in major art exhibitions and found time to enjoy the local Whole Foods shop and other delights right on our doorstep.

My wife, daughter and I were there from late December through mid-January 2016 and couldn´t be happier. Everything was as expected: excellent. We prize warmth, knowledge and sensibility, and Charlotte had them all; she always helped us, when needed—her assistance in pointing us in the right direction was tops.

My wife and I stayed at Charlotte's for 5 nights in October and found everything to be first rate. We were in the front room, which had ample space, and both the bedroom and bathroom were attractive and well laid-out. We found the breakfast to be perfectly adequate and the coffee and tea selections were excellent. If a heartier breakfast... More

We spent a long weekend at Barclay House. The room was comfy, very tasteful decoration and furniture. Breakfast (cold) was nice, had variety. The house is in a smaller street that was calm and silent over the weekend, but very close (about 5-8 mins walk) to underground and restaurants. The owner was nice and helpful, we would be happy to... More

Barclay House is a great location for both leisure and business travelers. I had a convention at Excel and the longer commute was well worth it.

Wow, these were jogging enthusiasts who were amazed at the easy jaunt up to Hyde Park and surrounds. They packed in a lot over a 5 night visit.
