I made a very late booking in the afternoon of Saturday 19th March 2016, not ideal circumstances but I needed a place to stay near to Kingsmeadow Stadium because I intended to have a few drinks. Ingrid was very hospitable, the room was exactly what I expected, clean, tidy and so on for a B&B. Excellent value for a short... More

We had the small room which would be ideal for a single person but was somewhat cramped for a couple. We would have liked tea/coffee making facilities in our room - we were allowed to go downstairs to use the owner's kitchen to make drinks but although we had been told that this was fine to do we still felt...

I arrived late on the evening of 11th day of September 2015 and stayed through till the morning on 15th September 2015. My welcome was generous and warm almost as if these people knew me from time immemorial even though I only had just met them. Next day Ingrid and Mike were kind enough to take me to Waterloo station... More

My family stayed over in July. They were appalled by the poor service and would not go back to this place nor they would advise others to do so. They felt unwelcomed and spent as much time as possible outside this place. The impression is that the owner would choose not to share her house if she could and that... More

This family of three persons checked in to Artists Villa on 28th July for eight nights, occupying the two guest rooms. There were no other guests. I'm very surprised and mystified at the complaint about poor service, as they were friendly, polite and did not complain about anything to me. Antonella has not specified what her family were unhappy about... More

We stayed in a beautiful old style and artistically decorated room in an old villa in Kingston near the railway station. The host was very helpful. I could use her kitchen to make tea and borrow some of her dishes. There were fresh flowers in the room and the big bed was very good. The room was well cleaned and... More

The decor is nice. There is only one bathroom shared by everyone. Breakfast was not available as 7.30 was 'too early'. I stay in a b and b when I work away from home because I find hotels lonely and enjoy a bit of friendly chat. None here though. One open plan living room and I felt very unwelcome in... More

I don’t usually respond to Trip Advisor reviews because no matter how I might disagree with what has been written, I believe the author is entitled to express their experience. However, this review has a number of factual inaccuracies that I need to counter. First, continental breakfast is available from 7:30AM through to 9:30AM – and to accommodate guests who... More

I've stayed in various B&B and hotels in Kingston before settling for this place, overall the best I've found. I've stayed three (or four?) times, and will go again. The house is conveniently located, in a quiet street but close enough to major bus lines. It's got everything I care for in the context of a short business visit, including... More

This is not like other bed and breakfast accommodation. It is run by Ingrid an artist whose work - paintings and ceramics - adorns the house. The beds are comfortable and the front bedroom (the one in the photo) is very spacious. The house -- which is also Ingrid's home -- is convenient for either Kingston town centre (10 minutes... More

I attended a course at Kingston University for one week, and booked myself into the single room at the Artists villa. It is easy to find with sat nav, and Ingrid was very helpful with information about car parking. The road is very quiet, even though it is very close and convenient to Norbiton train station. My room was quite... More
