“Excellent facilities and riverside location.”

The apartment has everything you need for a spacious, comfortable stay, with all the appliances and facilies you could need. The owners seems to have thought of everything, (e.g. there's even a phone charger available). If driving works for you there's a reserved parking spot.
There's a king sized bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge (not used by us)
As for location, there's a bus which takes you to Victoria in one direction, and to Clapham Junction the other.
There's some good eateries withng 5 minutes walk, including a Gordon Ramsey restaurant.
For a pleasant Sunday morning try a walk along the Thames riverbank, round Battersea park, calling in at the Butcher and Grill for brunch.

“Comfortable home away from home in Battersea”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in March 2016

You can see the Thames river from the windows! And the Thames Path is just across the road. This is a clean, comfortable and well maintained one bedroom flat with plenty of space for two. It is in a secure building with a resident caretaker. There is lots of space for your clothes and suitcases. The kitchen is very well equipped and comes with a fridge/ freezer and a washing machine. Wifi is free and works well. The flat looks like its pictures, so there are no surprises.

Battersea is across the river from Chelsea and if you like walking you can get there in about 15 minutes. Staying at the flat is a great way to get comfortable using the London bus network. Buses go from outside the building to Victoria (where you can get to the Underground) or to Clapham Junction where you can get a train to just about anywhere in London and in southern England. There are lots of different restaurants within a short walk. If you want to do your own cooking, there is a Sainsburys and a Tesco Express within ten minutes walk and a very good Waitrose about twenty minutes walk away.

The owner answered all our questions before our stay and provided lots of advice about how to get to the flat. There is also loads of information about the buses, Underground trains and London attractions in the flat. If you are familiar with London, or are on a return trip to London, this is a great place to stay.

“Wonderful to return to Archer on Thames”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

It was wonderful to return to Archer on Thames. We stayed at this property last year when we visited our daughter in London. We were delighted our recent visit coincided with a vacancy.
The flat is spacious, light, clean and very secure. Everything is thoughtfully provided. It has great views of the river, we even had a drink on the river banks one balmy evening.
Communication with Annabel was easy, she replied to all queries within a 24 hour period.
It's an easy walk to Battersea Square, Battersea Park, Chelsea and Clapham Junction, the bus service is very reliable.
I would highly recommend this property.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I was extremely comfortable in this apartment and had no problems at all during my stay. It is larger than the photographs might suggest, has everything that you need and was spotless. Some people might be a bit intimidated by it not being close to a tube station but it is a very easy (and short) bus journey into the centre of town. The apartment is in a lovely residential area and, as a solo traveller, I felt very secure within the building and the area.
Would definitely stay there again.
