Dalyell Road provided a fresh , clean , well appointed , spacious base for our sightseeing trip . The 2 en suites were a real bonus .Tv in all rooms was a plus ,as was the court yard area , lovely for breakfast and evenings ,weather permitting !The location was fine we got to places like the London Eye and The Natural history museum in under 30 minutes . For the 5 of us we enjoyed a space , freedom and privacy that could not be found in a hotel.

“Good for families”
Reviewed May 29, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Most comfortable and pleasant stay of our trip was at 22 Dalyell Road.

Lot more space than a hotel - allows kids to spread out, relax and not feel cramped in a tiny hotel room. Would definitely recommend it for families.

Convenient
- walking distance from Stockwell tube and Brixton tube and National rail stations. Safe to walk back late at night.
- 5 mins, just down the road, from a Costcutters for groceries.
Iceland near Stockwell tube and Sainsbury near Brixton tube are bigger and have more choice. Depending on where we got off, we stopped in these stores, to get groceries/dinner, on our way back home from the tube. With the ready supply of good quality, a lot of it pre-made, food in London and the convenience of having stores nearby, we did not have to eat out in London. Talk about traveling on a budget.

Washer was a big help for us since we were going to be traveling for almost a fortnight and wanted to travel light. No dryer but a drying rack is provided. It worked fine.

2 bathrooms - big save on time. Admittedly, the bathrooms are small and cramped but 2 showers are any day better than 1. We realized this later in other accommodations in our 3 country trip where we did not have 2 bathrooms and spent a lot more time getting ready.

Nice courtyard, although the weather was not warm enough for us to lounge outside.

There was also a small barbecue (? - I think) in the kitchen area. We did not use it.

Brixton is a lively town and seems to have more selection of places to dine and shop than Stockwell.

Arriving from Heathrow - We booked online with www.onlineairportcars.com from Heathrow to Stockwell. It cost us 46 from the airport and 37 for return. No problems with them - they were prompt.
If you do decide to take the rail, you probably should take a cab from the station to the house. Also, there are steps in Brixton and Stockwell stations which could pose problems with baggage. Walking from the station to the house is not an option unless you have just a backpack.

And, last but definitely not the least, Matt was very prompt and responsive in answering all our queries before and during our stay. He made the effort to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Staying here made our trip to London a hit with everyone in the family!

“Better than staying in a hotel”
Reviewed May 19, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Just completed our stay at 22 Dalyell Rd with our two teenage daughters. Nice - although not upscale location - less than 10 minutes walking distance from Stockwell and Brixton tube stations (less than 0.75 Km). Quiet and safe neighborhood - even at late night - and close to a convenience store (Cost Cutters). The flat itself is a downstairs unit, with two bedrooms, two rather small bathrooms, and a decent living + dining + kitchen area. Kitchen has full sized gas burners, a half-fridge, a decent sized microwave, a hot water kettle, and all the necessary cutlery, pots and pans. There is a washing machine that works well, but no dryer. A clothes rack is provided for drying clothes, and it worked well for us. The flat has modern look and feel, with good hot water supply and heaters in every room. There is WiFi internet access. There is a small terrace with patio furniture, which might be great in summer (it was too cold for us to use). The owner, Matt, is a great host and very thoughtful about providing everything one might need in a trip including all supplies such as washing machine detergent. With so much variety in ready made and ready-to-prepare food available from various supermarkets, we hardly ever ate in a restaurant during our stay. The kitchen in the flat made it easy for us to quickly prepare breakfast and dinner. The two beds were queen size, and very spacious and comfortable. Matt provides a number of comfortable pillows and thick comforters. He's also flexible about checking in and out depending on the presence of other guests leaving or coming in. A couple of minor negatives - the cost of accommodation for four worked out to be around 180 pounds a night - a little higher than what I wanted but still cheaper than 4-star hotel accommodation. It's hard to not make a mess around the kitchen and bathroom sinks due to their design. Overall, a great place to stay.

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed April 14, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Five of us stayed at the apartment and were very comfortable. The Stockwell tube station is a short 5-minutes walk from the apartment. The neighborhood was very quiet and we felt safe. Matt was very nice and made sure we were comfortable. We liked the small kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave and plenty of dishes. It was definately very nice.

“A charming flat”

This flat is located 10 minutes from Stockwell Tube. The location was very safe. We walked with our teenage children every night between 9:00 and 11:30 and never felt uncomfortable. We also loved that, although the bathrooms were small there were two showers. Numerous flats I researched advertised two bathrooms but many only had 1 shower. This was key for our family with 3 teenagers in the flat at certain times. Has a spacious and functional kitchen. The hot water kettle was a big hit. The patio was wonderful although it was too cool for us to sit out there in the evening.
For our circumstances this was the perfect place for our family. The value was great and Matt was easy to deal with. He is best to reach by text if there is a problem or if you need information. Great WiFi! The only negative was that there was a washer but it did not dry the clothes. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Matt!!!

We stayed in Dalyell Road for a week on two occasions in October, and would recommend it highly. Location was great, 10-15 mins walk to Stockwell/Clapham tube stations and some really good places to eat in Clapham. Matt was very courteous and helpful. We were delighted to be going back there the second week.

Matthew is an excellent host because he spent time on the phone to discuss the property with me before the rental and went out of his way to ensure that my very tall partner could negotiate the lowest celings in the bathrooms and that we had a very very early taxi to the airport. The living and dining area has very high ceilings and the entire apartment is very tastefully decorated with lovely original paintings, wooden floors, leather living room furniture, and excellent lighting. The beds and bedding are absolutely excellent as is the kitchen, has everything needed and modern equipment and nice dishes. The area Stockwell is fine and makes the price of this apartment very affordable, and there are two tube stations within close walking distance making everything in central London accessible. It was cool so we did not use the private terrace but it seemed very nice and the internet was great. The only improvement I would suggest is an area rug in the living area.
