We stayed at the Main House for one week and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The location was excellent, close to Portabello Road and the market, but close to bus and metro lines to get to the rest of London easily. We were on an upper floor and the room was of excellent size and very comfortable. No... More

I stayed at The Main House for 5 nights. It was a wonderful stay. I had the room(s) on the top floor all to myself. It was very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. It had everything I needed. This boutique accommodation is fantastically located, smack in the middle of Notting Hill, only minutes away from Portobello Road, and many other... More

I stayed at The Main House for six nights in March 16 and had a great experience. Comfortable, charming and a fantastic location. It is a small, personal hotel, no food served, but there are many wonderful options just around the corner, including Daylesfords for breakfast and coffee, and Ottolenghi for delicious middle eastern food. One street away from Portobello... More

Although my wife had a very unfortunate and strong case of flu during our stay, it was a blessing that we stayed at the main House. Our room was huge, and the equally huge mirrors hanged on the walls made it bright. The king size bed is comfortable so as not not make a 4 days forced stay in it... More

I spent a week at Caroline Main's house in Notting Hill. I was visiting London with my friend and we make a point of always staying interesting places when we travel together. Boutique style. And at places where we like to hang out and relax when we are not sightseeing. And preferably somewhere where we can feel almost local. The... More

My week was so comfortable in a lovely spacious & spotless room with large ensuite bathroom. It's proximity to Portobello Road with its fantastic restaurants & weekend markets is a huge plus. Caroline was the perfect host - considerate, friendly and helpful. Barb B

In November, my husband and I spent a week in London at Caroline Main’s Main House in Notting Hill. The Main House is a handsome stand out from all the other surrounding white washed porticos along Colville Rd. I joked about this with Caroline, its vibrant and animated owner. We stayed on the third level and found our suite spacious,... More

A well kept Victorian house, in the trendy residential area of Portobello Rd. It is like being a private guest in a 100+yrs old house, thanks to the hospitality of the owner Mrs Main, who is really taking care of your comfort and will help you choosing cute and healthy restaurants nearby. Well organized for station/airport transport. Top value for... More

Like staying with a fab friend who happens to live in the best part of town. The owners attention to detail with the room is unequalled and the desire to help point you in the direction of great local services and attractions unparalleled. Like a home away from home but with better linen.

My daughter and I recently stayed at The Main House for a week and thought it was great! We stayed on the top floor which was like a private apartment. The bedroom and sitting room were quite spacious and comfortable. The bathroom while small, was manageable and recently updated. The vintage property is well maintained, the rooms were clean, nicely... More

Staying in Notting Hill

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.
