Barclay House London B&B

Reviewed February 1, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at Barclay House London for one week in September 2013 and stayed in the King Room, which really is spacious, for a few days and then in the standard double room, which, in comparison to the King Room, is much smaller but still big enough for two people, given that we were outside most of the day and just went to the room to sleep. The rooms are clean, furniture is lovely and the mattresses are very good. The "light breakfast to go" is really great, you can always make yourself some tea, coffee or juice and there are croissants etc to eat. As some people pointed out before, you can hear virtually everything through the walls, but that was not a problem for us - London is a big city and I really prefer the noise of people walking around in a room to the noise of cars, construction sites etc.

Charlotte was very nice and gave us some insider tips regarding great pubs, places to visit and public transport. The B&B is really close to Fulham Broadway Station, and there are also several bus lines nearby (thanks Charlotte for explaining the bus plan to us, which really isn't too complicated once you've understood how it works).

I will definitely come back and can only recommend this place!

Room Tip: King Room is great & very spacious!

We've hosted so many Austrians; they really appreciate the modern, super clean aspects of our historical home. Just to clarify, we do have eco-friendly, super high spec sound insulation in the walls, ceilings and under the Austrian Oak floors. The 'people walking around' is usually what you hear in the morning when I bring down the breakfast goodies and the espresso machine starts to rumble a bit. I hope this won't deter others from enjoying a superb B&B offering in London's urban core!

My husband and I stayed here recently and really liked it. We are regular visitors to London and it's good to find somewhere with nicely appointed rooms in a convenient location without the hustle and bustle of a hotel. Charlotte is helpful and friendly and the self service breakfast is just right.

I had tried a few times over 2013 to book a room at Barclay House but it was always not available. I stayed overnight for the first time in December 2013. It is easy to find and a short walk from the Fulham Broadway tube station.
Charlotte is very welcoming and helpful. After leaving I ended up being caught in travel chaos at Heathrow and Charlotte responded to my desperate plea to her mobile late at night for last minute accommodation (which I unfortunately could not take).
The room and bathroom were spotless and very comfortable. I want to be able to get a booking here again (so, shh, don't tell anyone!)

Glad to report that this guest is returning soon for his second stay. Last time, he brought his own Nespresso 18 bar espresso machine, only to realise we had one for guests! Travel light,,,, we have everything you need here at Nr 21.

I stayed at Barclay House just before Christmas last year . The rooms are fabulous with great beds and bedding, state of the art bathrooms with lovely toiletries , flat screen tv's really like staying in a five star hotel !
The Barclay is situated just down the road from Fulham Broadway tube and there are lots of great pubs, restaurants and cafe's near by ,you couldn't wish for a better position. Charlotte the owner was very helpful and accomodated my every need. If your looking for a luxury boutique style b&b look no further this is the place to stay!

Another happy, boutique guest who knows London well. Tx for the helpful, specific descriptions of our luxe-for-less guest rooms. We hope to see you again in 2014; maybe for more shopping at the summer sales.

Barclay House is probably one of the most charming B&Bs in London, an absolute value for money. Perfectly located near a Distric line station (with frequent connection to the rest of the network) and not far from museums, Oxford str. etc, Barclay House provides the ideal accomodation for London visits. The room that we stayed was not big, but it had smart arrangement with all the possible amenities and comfort. Everything is absolutely clean and tidy. The kithcen is also small, but it probably has more functions that your home kitchen! Taking into account its B&B function, the House provides a high level of privacy and independence.
The best part is the host. Warm and helpful, without being intrusive, Charlotte made us feel as speial guests at Barklay House.
Definitely recommend it for any stay, but especially in case of a romantic visit to London.

We had to go to London to spend Christmas with my partner's oldest daughter with a large family tribe. We wanted to stay at a place nearby and found this little gem on the internet. Before we had slept in hotels and had been very disappointed. And here, in the middle of Chelsea, a stone's throw away from Stanford Bridge is a B&B where excellence reigns. We took the Kings room and this was much larger then most 300 Pounds plus hotel rooms in London. The owners have an incredible eye for detail and everything form bed to shower to breakfast (self made in a separate kitchenette) to available amenities was just top.
Our only disappointment was the early check out time.

Wonderful guests who thanked us every day for everything. Check-out time; we are going to change this now, based on suggestions from these guests. We will stagger check-out time, and check-in times, arranging this specifically with guests before they arrive, giving them options. In this case, these guests were going to their 'children's' house for their last night but other guests want to use their room and depart later in the day. As always, guests can leave luggage, keep keys and return to collect luggage. We'll now offer a later departure time. It takes 2 hours to clean a room here as clean everything from top to bottom; no short-cuts!
