“Like staying with your favourite Irish granny for the weekend....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2008

Wonderful old-style B&B in SE London. I found it by Googling 'New Eltham B&B' and rining the number that came up and it turned out to be a gem!

It is located half way up a quiet leafy road in New Eltham, not far off the North Circular. The bus and rail station is just round the corner; Charing Cross - and thus central London - is only a 15 minute train ride away.

The hardstanding to the front of the guesthouse is ample for all its guests' car parking needs.

Its rooms were large, clean and well looked after. It had one three-bed family room and two smaller ones - the latter 1-2 bed, I think. So fairly small then.

Food the traditial FEB, or continental if you ask. Times to suit you, pretty much.

No evening meal but there are plenty of restaraunts on New Eltham, the centre which is only a 10 min walk away. Alternatively, ask Phyllis nicely and she'll let you use the kitchen to cook your own food.

No website, fax or email address. The only way of making a booking is phoning the landlady, Phyllis Dennis, on the number above.

I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone. Only £27 per night too. Bargain!

  • Liked — Hospitaility - friendliness - helpfulness
  • Disliked — No internet access but for £27 per night it's hard to quibble.
