Beautiful, spacious apartment with great amenities and location
I had a pleasant and comfortable ten-night stay in this flat, which was exactly like its pictures: spotlessly clean, spacious, and bright. There is plenty of storage space for clothes, groceries, and in the bathroom vanity for those who like to fully unpack and make their stay feel a bit more like home. The amenities provided were above and beyond; I had basics like towels, linens, kitchenware, and even a drying rack for clothing; plus some thoughtful extras like sample toiletries, coffee, tea, and milk. I didn't happen to use the stove top or oven, but all the implements are available should you want to. I did use the microwave, toaster, and washer, all spotless and very convenient.
It was a self-check-in process, which went very smoothly and worked well for me since I didn't know exactly what time I woudl arrive. I received detailed instructions on how to let myself in, which was helpful because the entrance is around the back of the main house and there is more than one door along the way.
The surrounding area is very pretty, entirely residential. I walked back from the market (about 15-20 min) a few times in both day and evening and I never felt unsafe. Because it is a residential area, the nearest markets and shopping (that I knew of) were a 15-20 min walk/5 min bus ride away. There is one bus that runs along the street that can take you to a nearby high street and the next train stations over. The nearest train station is super close (maybe 3 min walk), but it is a minor station and so the frequency of trains varies by day and time. For reference, central London was a 20-30 min train ride away on weekdays, and a bit longer on weekends, when I had to go to the next nearest station.
I met Gemma and her family briefly mid-stay and they were very warm and welcoming, happy to provide help if I needed it. She also responded very promptly to any messages I sent.
Overall I had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this property to others, provided the location and transit situation suits you.
The only suggestions I can think of for improvement are minor things:
- Consider some additional kitchen supplies that are non-perishable and can only be bought in large quantities, such as paper towels, cooking oil, and basic condiments like salt & pepper. Visitors, especially those on shorter stays, may not want to buy these themselves since the bulk of it will be left unusued. I personally like having cleaning supplies available so I can keep
Thanks for your review Anne. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and your UK tour! Good luck with the next book!
Super comfortable flat
I booked this flat for four nights and stayed there with my partner. We are extremely happy with the experience and I am willing to recommend this site to anyone that wants to visit London. The flat was super clean and recently refurbished. It is full of details of good taste and amazingly well equipped. Heating is great, there is a dishwasher, washing machine, induction cooker, microwave oven and very complete silverware and dishware. It is located in zone 4, but communication with downtown London is fast and frequent, the train station being just round the corner.
Thank you Gemma and husband! We loved your place
Beautiful apartment with lovely touches
My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night and we were left with a card and a bottle of prosecco which was a lovely surprise! Easy to get too and lovely parents who helped us to get in late at night!
We're glad you enjoyed your special wedding night at our place....we wish you a long and happy marriage!
