Yummy croissants for breakfast -- full French quality! Lots of interesting shops and restaurants within a 5-10 min walk of the hotel! Personable host and hostess! Easy travel via tube to Victoria & Albert Museum and other London highlights!

The best organised guests yet; they travel with one small-ish backpack each--amazing. We love hosting guests in our home (glad you felt it was up to the standards of a nice small boutique hotel, though). We hope to see you in two years again. In the meantime, send us your friends please. Hot croissants out of the oven await...

I stayed in the small room, which was perfect; very comfortable bed, shower with great pressure, generally a very welcoming, clean space. Enjoyed the communal kitchen area, filled with great tea, coffee, treats. Charlotte is a wonderful host. IN close proximity to Fulham Broadway. I will definitely book again when I am next in London.

Barclay House is an excellent choice for a family. The location is wonderful: Fulham is a great place to stay, far from the tourists' masses and REALLY close to a District Line tube stop and to buses heading to Notting Hill. Near to many museums (V&A, National History, Science) and plenty of beautiful little spots where eat and drink. Charlotte...

Italians always appreciate our very clean, well-designed rooms and the ease of jumping on the 14 or 414 up to the 3 major museums at the top of Fulham Road, or taking the tube 4 easy stops. Our own park around the corner is great for kids to use the swings or to take a stroll and then land at...

The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. The location can't be beat-only a short walk to great restaurants, shopping and the Tube. Charlotte, the owner, took excellent care of us. We will definitely go back.

I've been coming to this B&B for more than a decade. I've watched the neighborhood gentrify. Location is spectacular when you need to jump on the Tube quickly. Now I love walking to first rate restaurants like Manuka Kitchen or Kishmish Indian. Amazing coffees abound. Yet the greatest part is being in a warm home with high-end amenities. Bedding, towels,...

More returning guests who know the neighbourhood and enjoy everything we offer--the best compliment. Guests are amazed at our award-winning bathrooms and powerful rain pulse showers with plenty of hot water (not always the case in London). Tempting croissants hot out of the oven and strong espresso start the day off right for most. Thanks again for taking time to...

I enjoyed my stay at Barclay House to the fullest! Since I was on a business trip it was important to me to get back to a cosy and relaxing room after all the meetings! Everything was very clean, modern and valuable! Charlotte and Ron were super kind and very helpful! I will definitely come back!

Beautiful room with minimalist, sparky clean bathroom. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Great location, 2 min walk from Fulham Broadway Tube station.

Future guests; apologies for this confusing review. We are not sure this person stayed with us as the idea of 'recommended' and 3 stars does not fit. We have tried to contact the person via message and alerted TripA as well. 2017 has started out with a cold London but lots of very pleasant guests! Happy New Year to any...
