Great location, very clean, good breakfast easy parking right outside of guesthouse . Lekha very welcoming and friendly. Having some renovation work done at the moment but don't let that put you off. Have booked up to stay again when I'm next in town .

If your looking for a friendly place to stay in a great location for London, then I would recommend Primrose Guest House. I travelled solo for a few days sightseeing in London. Using my bus pass to get around London, the guest house was easy to find, just a few stops from Camden Town. I arrived early, having e-mailed ahead,... More

I really wish I could give this place a better review, as Lekha is a hardworking, sweet and caring host. Unfortunately, there are too many problems with the house that detracted from all that. Although she says "refurbishments" are going on, I saw none of that and just the same things that reviewers have consistently highlighted. The PROS: Lekha is... More

Im sorry to hear about your complaints, as it was an extremely busy period when you were here, it would have been an inconvenience to guests to have builders in the house, building work is carried out on quieter days so guests are not disturbed as they walk up and down stairs, it is stated on the website that hallway...

I can see why other people have found this B&B a bit hostel-like. It has pros and cons. Cons: suprisingly tatty/grubby hall and stairwell; this doesn't really make any difference, but is quite offputting on arrival. The two rooms we had were small and a bit cramped, partly as I think the bathrooms were boxes in rooms rather than separate... More

Thank you for your review and comments, refurbishment/renovations are going, due to the busy period it is taking longer than anticipated, many guests welcome the use of a fridge or a microwave whilst away, the DIY breakfast is there so that guests who require breakfast earlier than the stated times can help themselves.

Nice clean room in beautiful neighborhood. Full breakfast served if you like, but we are lighter eaters in the morning , so we had toast and coffee with fruit and yogurt- the owner is absolutely lovely- the only somewhat negative comment is that it is a bit pricey compared to what you may be able to get at a hotel...
