Josephine Swannie
Ranked #168 of 563 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 26, 2010

First of all, I'm glad to say the place is exactly like on the photos. A charming B&B, decorated with style, clean and comfortable. Could be perfect if it wasn't for the lady running the place who was quite weird indeed. Apparently, 0.30 am was "too late to take a shower" as she said while banging heavily on the bathroom's door. Now, I've been to a few hotels of all sorts in my life and at some places there was a house rule on the wall or the staff would tell us the basic facts to know on arrival. Which, sadly, was not the case in this B&B. We were all quite shocked at this incident, to be honest...
Last day, on our return to collect our bags before leaving for the airport, the lady left the door open after we entered and stood in the doorway (it was raining and was really cool outside) while we were rearranging things in our baggages. Quite clearly a signal for us to leave at once. Our company of friends visits London once or twice a year, and even though the rooms are perfect, we shall not be returning as the rather stiff adn unfriendly service left a sour taste in our mouthes.

Josephine's was our first stop on our honeymoon tour; what a fabulous introduction to London! She is very sweet and helpful and the bedrooms so pleasant, a perfect light and airy atmosphere. A beautiful street, the amazing brompton cemetery behind the garden wall out back, a kind hostess and a yummy English breakfast. Thank you Josephine and kittys!
