“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

I recently stayed 8 nights at the Martel Guest House. Golders Green is a quiet and safe area. The Guest House was only a short walk to tube and buses to Central London and Hampstead.
While some of the rooms are small, they are immaculate with hotel-like appointments and modern features. Breakfasts in the sunny (most days) dining room was ample and well cooked by Mr. Martel himself. His housekeeper, Nely, was very helpful and accommodating. If you are planning a trip to London and want considerable value and comfort, I heartily recommend Martel Guest House.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor next to the street and found it very quiet.

I travelled with my two adult sons and needed to be close to family who we were visiting and combine it with tourism. Martel's Guest House was a real find in a capital city where disappointments abound. It was quiet but close to all transport and an easy journey to Central London for tourism. The rooms, though small, are spotless with super comfy hard beds and as well equiped as a hotel, with shampoos etc in the bathroom and tea and coffee, fridge, flat screen tv, wi-fi, & hairdryer in the room. The owner and staff were very helpful and the breakfast (cooked or cereals, fruits, etc) is worth the visit. We were given a key to come and go as we pleased and made to feel welcome. Will certainly use again when returning to London.

Room Tip: The back and upstairs rooms are the quietest, although this is a very quiet street. Size varies and...

Golders Green area is very nice, and Mr. Martel and her housekeeper, nellie, are friendly and charming. The beds were confortable and the rich breakfast was wonderful. Very cosy and friendly atmosphere. clean and in very good location.freshly prepared breakfast by your own request, nice chats. Hostel is located in very quite region and there is always a feeling as you are in your friends. I am completely satisfied with every thing. Even while the guesthouse was practically full upp Mr Martell and Nellie were fantastic, They are polite and helpfull but also cheerfull people once you get to know them.

The beds were confortable and the rich breakfast was wonderful. Near the hotel there are a lot of good restaurants and the underground station. Mister Martel is a real gentleman and he's a very good chef.

Just back home after a holiday in London, once again stayed at Martel Guesthouse and once again I am completely satisfied with every thing. Even while the guesthouse was practically full upp Mr Martell and Nellie were fantastic, They are polite and helpfull but also cheerfull people once you get to know them. Brakfast is supreme and even though Mr Martel remembers your prweferances for breakfast things are not taken for granted and he checks with you ever day. The cleankiness of the place, the care for your belongings and the way a guest is treated is 5 star service.On one occasion I was astounded to hear Mr Martell giving a guest the weather forcast.He is always happy to call a cab for a guest and help in directions.Once again a big thank you to Mr Martel and his staff especially Nellie, who is a cheerful educated and helpfull lady, her cheerfull welcome when we arrived was fantastic, it is as if you are entering the house of a friend.Well done and keep it up.

I stayed again at Martel's Guest House and was made very welcome. Thanks. Tiny shower true ! but very comfy room for a single person, lovely towels and very clean. Nice TV screen and kettle for tea/coffe.
The breakfast , included, is copious and served in a lovely groundfloor room overlooking a pretty garden.
It's also very well placed, a few minutes from underground and numerous buses to all parts of London. It's a quite area, yet there are coffee shops and restaurants open late.
Mr Martel the host is very kind. I'll pass on this address.

Room Tip: Nice house for comfortable stay.
