Our son recently got married at the Old Town Hall Chelsea, London. When visiting London in the past, we have always stayed at a hotel, but this time we chose the Barclay House Bed and Breakfast. The location in Fulham gave us easy access to the wedding events and also provided the opportunity to become familiar with another London neighborhood. We were not disappointed and actually were very pleased. We had the King room, which proved to be an ample size, with convenient storage for our numerous “wedding event”’outfits. Our hosts, Charlotte and Adrien were welcoming and accommodating. Especially with our unusual needs relating to the wedding. (Hair Salons, shoe repair, dry cleaning, etc.) They were always present, but never intrusive. The smart, efficient breakfast bar was stocked with good choices for breakfast, lovely teas and delicious coffee. The perfect start to our day, without the obligation of a specific timed of sit down breakfast. We were thrilled with the entire experience. Lovely Bedding, comfortable mattress, smart bathroom and shower - and so much more. We highly recommend the Barclay House for a quick weekend drop in or for an extended stay. Yes, it is that comfortable. We look forward to our next visit to this city, we will make Barclay part of our plan.

Glad you enjoyed discovering our convenient corner of London! It was a pleasure to host you. You discovered another neighbourhood gem; a proper shoe cobbler around the corner is such a rarity these days. We actually have a regular guest from California who returns each time with another pair of fine Ferragamo shoes, to have them repaired overnight at Romski’s.

Staying with Charlotte and Adrian at Barclay House is a delight! The accommodations feel like home away from home in a perfect location in Fulham. Charlotte and Adrian are welcoming, helpful, and a pleasure to spend time with. The breakfast bar and separate spaces also give this B&B a much more independent feel than other places my spouse and I have stayed. In the morning we could have delicious and healthy breakfast on our own and connect with Charlotte and Adrian whenever in the day that we wanted guidance or company. We found that this was a respite from highly scheduled group breakfasts that we've experienced at other B&Bs. In addition, the rooms were very comfortable and they were equipped with everything we needed. And if we needed any assistance, Charlotte and Adrian pointed us in the right direction or provided us with help. When we needed shirts pressed for a formal affair, Charlotte sorted it immediately. When we return to London, Barclay House will always be at the top of our list of places to stay.

A five-star studded affair was the reason for this stay and we so enjoyed ‘helping out’ behind scenes. Those hats!! Thank you for explaining how our grab and go breakfast bar worked well for your busy schedule. We’ll look forward to another drink with you, overlooking the chimney tops of London, on our roof terrace.

Thanks to COVID, our trip was two years in the making. Charlotte was more than willing to work with my wife and me as we rescheduled the stay twice. She was there for us when we had questions and her can-do attitude continued after we arrived. Charlotte and Adrian are fantastic hosts; we even went to dinner with them a couple of times at restaurants that are frequented by locals. They gave us great tips, including to a lightly advertised tiara collection on display at Sotheby’s. The king room where we stayed was nicely appointed. Anyone who has been to London knows that hotel bathrooms there can be micro-sized. That’s not the case here. It’s clear that Charlotte and Adrian made it a priority to have good-sized bathrooms and showers, something we often take for granted when staying at places in the US. The location is enviable … a leafy street within easy walking distance of good restaurants, a tube stop and even Stamford Bridge, home of the Chelsea Football Club. We will definitely be staying at Barclay House again the next time we visit London.

These guests were so organised that they had planned some downtime--an absolute top tip when traveling in Europe! So, they had time to share a local meal with us as well as take in a high end exhibit that we suggested, held at an auction house. Having re-booked their planned stay from 2019 to 2020 and then to 2022, we'd had a bit of time to get to know one another by email; an exceptional positive outcome of the big pandemic. We enjoyed hearing their travel stories and picked up some great ideas from them, too. What a joy it is to share our Victorian terraced townhouse with seasoned travelers! Thank you for pointing out our marble-clad bathrooms and HansGrohe Axor Raindance showers; you won't be the first guests contemplating investing in this exceptional shower experience. Looking forward to your next visit. In the meantime, send us your friends and keep up with us on Instagram:@boutiquelondonbnb

Charlotte and Adrian were excellent hosts, they couldn't do enough for me. Flight changes, delays, all taken in their stride, no fuss, extremely accommodating. Barclay house location is great for me, close to the tube, easy access to 2 Covid testing labs (important for me for travel), pubs and restaurants and the general area is nice for a morning run or stroll. My room was perfect, easy come and go with really good but uncomplicated security. Next time when I'm with my wife we'll go for the big front room, tons of space.

Another five-star guest. So glad you’ll be returning in the next few months; that is the best compliment of all. With so many flight ‘challenges’ these days, we remain super flexible about arrival times—glad we could even change your day of arrival. Whatever it takes, we’ll are staying as flexible as possible for our guests.

Charlotte was extremely helpful in accommodating us just after the CV-19 lockdown so we could attend our daughters wedding in Chelsea. The rooms are very comfortable with quiet air con, very clean with a great shower. The area is in a dead end road with no traffic noise, we slept like logs!!! Nice kitchen area with everything you need. Lots of sanitizer on entre to B&B and in the room and loads of useful information. The location is excellent only 100 yards from Fulham Broadway with shops and restaurants. We dined at the Spanish Tapas 'El Metro' and can recommend this with friendly staff (especially the owner) and very reasonable prices. The lady, Sigita, who lives on site and maintains the rooms was lovely and also very helpful with extra towels. Would definitely recommend Barclay House. Thanks for making our weekend

Our first post-lockdown guests were so lucky to make it to the long-planned wedding of their daughter; we were glad to host you and thank you for cooperating with our new, on arrival disinfecting procedures which incorporate both Hilton’s 10-touch points Safe-Clean as well as TripAdvisor’s check list. We hope to host you and your friend’s again.

We stayed here for 8 nights and it was the perfect place to stay for exploring London and beyond. The room was beautiful and thoughtfully designed with outlets in the right places and high-end finishes. The light “grab-and-go” breakfast was absolutely perfect to provide the right amount of energy in the morning without being too heavy. The location is AMAZING - just around the corner from Fulham Broadway tube station which is the starting point to a journey to anywhere you want to go in London - but tucked away off the main road in a quiet, residential area. Charlotte provided tons of tips on how to make the most of our time in the city and on day trips (Charlotte, thank you for suggesting Bath - we absolutely loved that day trip and would have never known to go without your suggestion) and is an all-around wonderful host. We will return on future trips to London for sure.

History buffs make five-star guests. Glad you loved everything we offered here during your eight-day stay, plus our own Fulham Palace as well as the free Mayor of Bath walking tours that we highly recommend. Bubbly, bountiful Bruch at Manuka Kitchen, around the corner, is a must for all of our guests. Anyone reading this should see these guests’ fabulous further photos and take in all their experiences! Looking forward to hosting you again here at Boutique B&B Barclay House London. In the meantime, please send us your friends!

Loved our 5 day stay at Barclay house and can’t wait to visit again. It was a home away from home with a little kitchen full of treats and necessities too! Felt so well looked after as I became unwell and it was lovely to be staying in such comfort when you are thousands of miles away from home and unwell. Loved our front king room and hope to return to it later this year. Great location to tube and local eateries too.

Charlotte was an excellent host and the rooms were modern and spotless. Favorite amenity is the heated mirrors in the bathroom that don't collect steam on them after a hot shower. Conveniently located right next to the Fulham Broadway station, so access to all the sights London has to offer is just a short train ride away. 10/10 will stay here again and recommend to anyone I know traveling to London.

So glad that you enjoyed our little breakfast bar in your time zone! Organic delights abound. These guests walked to Westminster, along the River Thames, in record time, assuring other guests that it was the best way to see London and nix jet lag. Thank you for taking time to review; many read, few write!

This was the third time we have stayed here in the past five years. On all three occasions our stay has been excellent. We stayed in the front room which is very comfortable. This is one of the rare B&Bs we have stayed at in the UK which has air-conditioning. Our host Charlotte was very friendly and helpful as always. It is only a couple of minutes walk from Fulham Broadway station and the Fulham shops and restaurants. We would highly recommend Barclay House once again. We hope to come back to London and stay there again in the future.

Returning guests are always such a pleasure to host! We catch up on their latest travel adventures and share new finds. Thank you for pointing out the silent air con (top of the range Daikin inverter—adjustable by you) that has made a big difference for guests this summer. It is super energy efficient and brings in fresh air at all times. Several guests have gone home and installed this slimline wonder in their own bedrooms. We’ll be hosting more returning guests this week; looking forward to that!
