“A great place to stay to visit London”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our stay there was perfect. Borough has a very authentic flavour and it's a quiet, very convenient location, near two underground stations, supermarkets and nice pubs to chill out -we enjoyed the Gladstone and the Libertine very much. The flat has lots of comfortable features, specially the amazingly comfy bed and all the appliances needed. Very clean, nice smell, cozy, everything worked smoothly... In just one word, perfect. The owner showed high standards in every exchange we had, but particularly we appreciate (and congratulate him!) his excellent taste in hiring people to take care of the guests: Fernando (the housekeeper) is the perfect host. He made us feel welcomed and gave us all the help and assistance we needed. He is amiable, helpful, kind and elegant, and we were happy to know that he lived nearby so he could be reached easily. We will not hesitate to try this place again next time we visit London.

“Wonderfully peaceful!”
Reviewed June 25, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The flat was clean, well-appointed, and located in a peaceful residential area. There was enough room for the 3 of us to not feel cramped. Four people would easily be comfortable here. The appliances all worked perfectly. We especially appreciated the convenience of the washer/dryer and the dishwasher. Two small grocery stores were only steps away and fulfilled our shopping needs nicely. The flat was convenient to a myriad of public transportation options and was centrally located to all of the major sights that we visited.

We especially appreciated that after a long day of sight seeing we could retreat to such a quiet environment to unwind. Once you have experienced the crazy mass of humanity in the "hot zones" of tourism, you will especially appreciate this amenity.

The owner and his assistant were very responsive to all of my questions and made themselves readily available should I have any concerns.

Should we find ourselves back in London we will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend the flat.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Having travelling a great distance to get to London, it was essential to feel at home and Borough Base offered just this. The accommodation was easy to find, cosy even in winter and is in easy reach of the tube. During our stay we visited the Shard and took regular walks to view London Bridge.

There were some difficulties in the flat, as on arrival when turning on the shower it leaked all over the bathroom floor. Water also came in through the floorboards in the kitchen due to a maintenance fault. This was rectified quickly but still stressful as the plumber indicated at the time that he wanted to rip up the floor and we would have to heating for several days.

My partner and I stayed in Borough for a long period and noticed that the cutlery and utensils could be improved upon, the pans and oven trays were severely used so was quite dirty and needs replacing. There was limited cutlery - comfortable for 2 people but when we had friends visiting there was a real struggle.

On a more positive note, Ellie who met us and kept in regular contact answered every text and made our stay more comfortable.

Management Response
Apr 12, 2015
Just to note that fixing those unanticipated plumbing snags involved no interruption to heating or hot water for longer than an hour or two, or I'd have worked to rehouse the guests at my expense.

When next there at the end of the month I'll replace any pans as needed. The lovely Ellie did a cutlery count this weekend though, and the drawer contains are more than half a dozen of everything. So for want of a better way of putting it, I'm struggling to see the struggle... But the 4 out of 5 overall score is welcome.

“Very convenient well located flat”
Reviewed February 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Borough Base has an excellent location. It is a ten minute walk to the cultural facilities of the South Bank, and a very pleasant twenty minute walk to the heart of the West End. The flat is comfortable and has everything you could need for a holiday stay. The bed is comfortable. I have stayed in the winter, when the flat is warm with the heating on, and in the Summer when it is cool. I am pleased to have found this flat as it beats other flats I have stayed in from holiday lettings. it is very good value considering the location.

“excellent flat for short break”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Fernando met us at the flat as arranged, he gave us a guide on how to use the white goods in the flat, he was also very informative about the area and getting around.
The flat was adequate for our needs during our short breaks.
The bed was a good size and very comfortable.
