“Once only experience”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

On the upside - the room was warm (too warm but better than too cold) and bed was quite comfortable, room was clean.

Downsides - room was so small it felt like a cell. I am 5ft 4" and had trouble shutting the loo door so my poor boyfriend at 6ft 4 had no chance. The shower was a cubicle added onto the wall with clear glass so no privacy, nowhere to put a towel. The shower was a hand one so not designed for being held in a hook on wall. Water was lukewarm.

Woman who checked us in was not very friendly or helpful. Breakfast was cereal and toast. I had to knock on kitchen door to ask for some baked beans as no hot option was offered, it appeared that you had to go and ask.

Definitely wouldn't return.

We were looking for a hotel near the underground with good standard at a reasonable price and we got just what we wanted. The rooms are warm and clean, the breakfast is fresh and whatever you need help with, they try to provide. Every member of the staff was very friendly.The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the underground in a calm and quiet neighborhood, close to restaurants and minimarkets.
I want to give their cleaninglady/staffmember my warmest review since she with a personal warmth made our stay a delight. I´ll stay here during my next visit to London!

being sceptical at first because of mixed reviews here i was absolutely positively surpirsed by this nice b&b! it provided what other place miss: a quiet location and a decent charm.
of course some of the rooms are really small and simple but everything is very clean, breakfast just nice and staff is helpful and supportive.
slept wonderful in my comfy bed and very much enjoyed my stay.
would definitly come back!

Room Tip: breakfast room is downstairs, so are rooms #1 & #2, so if you want to sleep in and avoid hearing...

Stayed here for two nights while sight seeing. The hotel was lovely and clean with friendly staff. Breakfast was all freshly made to order. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and manager always polite. No more than a 5 min walk to underground and local shops. Parking is free on weekends and after 6:30pm.

On arrival we were put in a room with no en suite which we had asked for. This was extremely annoying and inconvenient. Cooked breakfast was a bit disappointing. Staff were very nice and friendly. Location was ideal for underground.
