The Lavender Guest House
Ranked #36 of 573 London B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We recently stayed here for nine nights and it was an exceptionally good experience. Spotlessly clean and with impeccable service. The owner was most attentive at all times, courteous and friendly. A truly 5 star Guest House offering exceptionally good value.

I have just returned from 3 nights at the Lavender Guest House. It was superb in every way - clean and comfortable rooms with a service which is second to none. A great find and I am looking forward to many return visits.

Room Tip: I stayed in Room 6 which is at the top of the house and very quiet.

Lovely clean B& Breakfast in central London. Tony Houss (the Manager) was wonderful right from when I had problems making the booking and during my stay. He was alway smiling, friendly and willing to help with any problem or request. His staff are lovely and I would definitely stay again

Room Tip: Even though some of you may not want to share a bathroom, trust me when I say the shared facilities...

Many Swedish friends ask us if we can recommend a place to stay in London. Now we have a ready made answer. The Lavender Guest House has good rooms, well equipped and it has that extra factor: personal service. The Manager, Tony Houss, puts Hospitality back into 'Hospitality Industry'. The perfect host.

We would have found it useful to be able to pay by debit/credit card. That's the nearest I can come to anything even a little bit negative.

My overall stay within this guest house was to my expectation. The staff were very friendly, could not do enough to help you and make you feel welcome. It was clean and very well presented. The beds were very comfortable and the location was easily accessibly to the shopping facilities and town center and railway station. I would highly recommend this guest house on further occasions.

Room Tip: I would recommend all rooms. Based in a perfect location.

Myself, husband and three kids (12,17 and 20) stayed here for 4 nights and so glad that we did! The guest house is so central - we packed it all in - North, South, East and West London and all so easy to get to. Lots of restaurants locally too. Rooms were spotlessly clean thanks to the lovely Lisa. Breakfasts were great thanks to the very sweet and charming Sarah. On our last day we were able to leave our luggage at the guest house and collect at 6pm which meant we had another full day of sightseeing! Many thanks to Tony, very helpful and obliging. A real home from home - were able to call through to each others rooms - two boys shared the twin, our daughter had her own room (the 20 year old) and we had a very comfortable room with shower (rooms 5, 7 and 8 respectively) All in all, would highly recommend the Lavender Guest House - it helped us have a really comfortable and enjoyable few days in London. We will be back!
