Martel's House is a very comfortable and travel friendly base. It's well connected being a close walk to the tube station and which gets you in to city centre in 30mins. Phil's team have put in the extra effort to help its guests be comfortable and have conveniences they need to better get around and enjoy the sites (free wifi, availability to mobile phone, travel books, etc...). The rooms are clean, we were greated warmly and the staff were very attentive to our needs. Helpful and good value. well recommended.

I stayed here for one night - friendly staff, good welcome and a very good breakfast. My room was just what I needed with a decent bed, tea and coffee making facilities and a good shower in the bathroom. Less than 10 minutes walk to Golders Green tube station; I didn't have my car with me, but parking at the Martel seemed fine.

The Martel House is a fantastic place to stay. The house is clean, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are large and very well maintained. Excellent breakfast in the morning with lots of options to choose from. It is a short walk to the Underground station and 30 minute tube ride to the city centre.

Martel's Guest House is a wonderful place to stay in London if you do not need to be in the centre of London. Golders Green Tube Station is only five minutes from it and it will take 25 minutes to go to Leicester Square. The rooms are clean, calm and the breakfast is prepared on the spot by Mr Martel who is very helpful person. Bathrooms are tiny but clean and well organised.

Room Tip: Room 8, double room, was spacious enough with a large window over the garden.

Background.

After much research for our holiday to London, we chose to stay at the Martel Guest House. This was based on other reviews of the guest house, our ability to drive there and have off road parking, and being close to the Underground so that we could get around easily.

The Martel Guest House

We were greeted by Nellie who made us very welcome with a cup of tea and cakes, she then helped carry our luggage in from the car.

We were in room 6 at the front of the house, the room was large had a good sized en suite, was well furnished, even including a fridge, and was spotlessly clean. Even though we were at the front of the house we heard no noise whatsoever. Throughout our stay the room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels and our bed made.

Breakfast was cooked fresh for you as you went into the dining room and was ready by the time you had eaten your cereals, and there was plenty to eat.

The area of Golders Green was vibrant, we enjoyed going along the main street seeing all the different shops and restaurants, in fact we ate there 3 evenings. The best place to eat is the Turkish Restaurant Likya, it's brilliant.

Overall how would we rate The Martel Guest House, very high.

When ever we go back to London this will be our first place of call for accommodation, its everything you could want in that it's, value for money, spotlessly clean, friendly and close to the underground. What more could anyone want.

Would we recommend it YES

Very good BnB, comfortable rooms, clean, the welcome is great and a very good traditional English breakfast. The landlord, Phil is a nice man, always ready to give you a good piece of advice, the house is close to metro station Golders Green and a lot of stops buses. Also plenty of good and not expansive restos. So pleased to be able to know this place. A french couple from Lyon.
