A bit of belated review (we stayed at the Kennington in April 2012) - sorry Sian .
The Kennington is a great B&B just seconds away from the Kennington tube station which is on the Northern line which itself provided easy links to the West end and just about anywhere in London. Its also within reasonable walking distance to the South Bank…absolutely fab for exploring on foot.
Sian is a fantastic landlady; she communicated well before our stay and was very welcoming and friendly. She greeted us upon our arrival and was always available during breakfast offering good local advice e.g. restaurants, things to do etc. Inga (sp?) provided breakfast and whilst the continental style may not be to everybody’s taste the sheer variety and volume (not to mention Inga’s warmness and hospitality) more than made up for bacon and eggs…yum!
Yes, the bathroom was not en-suite but this is made clear from the outset. There were no issues with sharing the bathroom as once a bedroom is assigned the 2nd bedroom on the floor is not bookable.
The B&B is of a high quality and sympathetic finish, nothing is overlooked. I could get pedantic about the narrow staircase etc but this is a renovated Georgian house..it is not a new build hotel.
The use of the iPad in the dining area is a great touch as is the instant hot water tap and the biscuits…hmm..maybe that’s not such a good idea for me!
All in all a big thumbs up, thanks and sorry for the late review.
