Clean, comfortable and extremely convenient for all our needs. Melissa gave very comprehensive instructions for getting about in London using buses and tube. We enjoyed our stay enormously. However the pub at the end of the street was a significant problem. As we were traveling with young children we were home early evening and the pub crowd was noisy and on one night the music was blaring until 12:30 am. The children could not sleep. The customers were taking their smoke breaks right outside our house and were pretty obnoxious. I know this is not Melissa's fault but it affected us considerably and I think people should be aware of the proximity of a very loud nighttime situation. The house itself was excellent and had everything we needed for a very enjoyable London trip.
Situated in a quiet mews near to good transport links with local shops and restuarants closeby the accommodation was clean, fresh and tastefully decorated with good quality beds /bedding, ensuring an excellent sleep, and kitchen facilities having everything the weekend traveller requires. The comfortable living area was greatly appreciated as we did spend some time in the house during our stay there. The owner was particularly easy and accommodating and I found the whole process of accessing/leaving the property completely stress-free which was very appealing when travelling. We so enjoyed our stay and would certainly book this property again.
House is very centrally placed, we walked just about all the time. Lots of places to eat and drink at all prices. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed except a vase. The tea, coffee,sugar etc was much appreciated.
Arrangements were relaxed and efficient, I would definitely use again if going in a group.
We stayed there for 1 week while vacationing, and everything was really clean and comfortable. The bedrooms are spread out over two floors, with the kitchen and living room on the very top. Convenient to both underground and buses to tourist areas. Quiet area with dining and public options nearby. Would definitely stay here again if traveling to london again.
My husband, 12-year-old twin girls and I stayed at this lovely property last week. We found the accommodations to be just right for our family: a clean, comfortable, and relatively quiet home base after a few days of sightseeing. The house is stocked with just about everything you need, from the basics in the kitchen, and bath towels and a hairdryer too. The towel warmers in both bathrooms were a real treat! Melissa is a very thoughtful host, ensuring your comfort during your stay and sharing lots of helpful information regarding restaurants, food stores, etc.
The location was very handy in getting anywhere, and we liked being one stop from St. Pancras / Kings Cross from the Farringdon tube stop...it made it very easy and convenient for taking the Eurostar on to Paris.
We loved this property and regret we couldn't have stayed longer. If we ever find ourselves in London again, we would definitely stay here!
It wasn't a problem for us, but there are a lot of stairs, which is something to keep in mind if you are traveling with little ones or anyone with limited mobility.
