Why is there such a shortage of accommodation in Barnet? I guess you only notice if you have to go there. I was there on business. All places close by were booked up - so it was down to this place.

Ok - wifi - yes worked well. Iron, yes - provided. Poached eggs at breakfast - massive fail.

What was most disappointing was that this was a really good B&B for about £45 - £50. Unfortunately no where near the quality I would expect for what I actually paid. The room was tiny, bathroom an after - thought (and not very cleverly designed). Worn floors, no room for a desk to sit at to do any work. Overall, to say it was adequate is a fair summary - not a place I would recommend or return to. Unless there was nothing close by in Barnet!

First visit !
Very good indeed . Good room ( though up two flights of stairs ) I have a bad knee , only had to ask and the manager himself carried our cases up ( Many thanks )
Breakfast was excellent , as were the staff . When it's a little warmer a great garden is available .
Room clean , bed OK , pillows a little hard . However happy .
Good for parking , and very good for public transport links .
Reception very helpful , what more can you ask !
Will return without doubt .

Room Tip: Lower floors . As stairs can be a problem !

I had a very enjoyable stay here. The staff were friendly, especially the breakfast staff; the room was very clean; bed was comfortable and the breakfast was really tasty. I was there on a difficult business trip and it was nice to come back to a comfortable, clean, welcoming place.

Room Tip: Choose one on the first floor unless you like stairs :-)

My wife and I were looking for accommodation for a visit to see a gig at Alexandra Palace.

We wanted a place with free and convenient parking and nothing in central London fitted the bill. This place enabled us to park right outside the guest house !!! Fantastic.

Only an apartment was available - so we took that. On arrival we were directed to leave the reception and walk 2 doors down the street to the building that had 3 of their apartments. A little unusual but the building was lovely and the apartment exceeded all our expectations!

It had a large bedroom, fully fitted kitchen and large lounge - all decorated and furnished to a high spec.

The reception staff were very helpful in getting us a taxi to Ally Pally.

The breakfast was had in the main building......a 10s walk from the apartment. Self-service, the breakfast and room was lovely and the staff were very attentive and quick to serve.

If only all guest houses were built this way !!

The best recommendation I would give is that I would bring my family back here the next time we're in London.

Room Tip: Apartments are lovely

We stayed at the hotel since family members live nearby. Its not downtown but about 40 min. From the river, Camden is closer. Station is five min. From the hotel. Rooms are small but sufficient. Breakfast is good, rooms equipped by coffee and tea things.

I've stayed in this hotel 3 times so far, every time just for one night. I enjoyed every each one of them. It's located in a very quiet area of London (which makes it a little far from the city center, but there's a tube station nearby). Beds are very comfortable.
