Found Castletown via Tripadvisor and all emails before my stay where handled with quickly. I booked the Charville studio, which was lovely, my only negative was that it was a bit noisy but then again I am a light sleeper and armed with earplugs I slept really well because I loved the bed.
You can't beat the location, it's in zone 2 but minutes away from West Kensington tube on the District line(very handy for the Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Kew Gardens, StPauls(Mansion House) etc), and Barons Court tube only a bit longer away(District but also on the Picadilly line, very handy for Heathrow/StPancras).
Supermarkets there is a Tesco Express almost round the corner, a Coop also close by, and if you pass West Kensington Tube and cross to the other side there is a small Sainsbury's close by too, not to mention the many cornershops incl. a 24 hour one. So there are no problems stocking up your kitchens, and a map provided by Castletown also shows any takeaways nearby.
I personally loved the free wifi, I never had to use my London guidebooks as I could just check everything online(I had brought along both my iphone and my MacBook)
Overal a very lovely stay, actually just enquired about a possible next stay.
