I stayed at The Main House for 4 nights in June and loved it. The rooms were clean and the bed was fresh and comfortable. Our room reservation was mixed up, however, Caroline was very accommodating and made everything work for us.
PROS: (1) Location is wonderful! Bus #23 stops around the corner and Tube is short walk away, plus the shops and restaurants nearby are great. Tom's Deli is perfect for quick bites etc. and you get a Main House discount. (2) Beata's morning coffee on the silver tray is great. (3) It is suprisingly quiet. We didn't hear any of the other travellers coming and going from the building.
CONS: Caroline and Beata run the operations and I think the email correspondence may suffer a bit due to the hectic pace. I had to send reservation information twice before I arrived and then the room I reserved had been given out (however, as mentioned above, Caroline made up for the error right away.)
The Main House is for the independent traveller who wants to "blend" in with a town or neighborhood. No big signs out front and no "tour bus" leaflets in the hallway. I would stay here again and again, loved it!
