A delightful place to stay in a varied and interesting area. Bernard was the consummate host: helpful and clear. Both host were friendly and easy to communicate with. A cosy, homey ( in the best sense) room with lovely views and every amenity. An excellent London location.
Excellent accommodations. Bernard did provide us with great tips and pointing out all kinds of fun possibilities of London. All in all an excellent place for a visit of several days to London.
Prima onderkomen. Bernard wist ons te voorzien van goede tips en te wijzen op allerlei leuke mogelijkheden van Londen.
Al met al een prima adres voor een bezoek van enkele dagen aan Londen.
We were guests of Bernard and Michael and everything 'was really good. The location, the 'house and especially the kindness and availability' of the owners. Appartameno clean and tidy and the breakfast choice. And 'certainly our desire to return for future views in London. Highly recommended.
Siamo stati ospiti di Bernard e Michael e tutto e' stato veramente ottimo. La locazione, l' abitazione e soprattutto la gentilezza e la disponibilita' dei proprietari.
Appartameno pulito ed ordinato e per la colazione vasta scelta. E' senz'altro nostro desiderio ritornarvi per future viste a Londra. Consigliatissimo.
It was a short, but tremendous stay! We were in London for the concert of The Rolling Stones, but thanks to the guiding of Bernard we have met a little piece of London too. Really a fantastic experience.
Bernard and Michael were fantastic hosts, gave great advice on the best local restaurants, and travel tips that only a local would know. Their apartment is stylish with lots of interesting art and plants .Our room was well equipped with a very comfortable bed -overlooking the canal ensured a good nights sleep. We would certainly recommend staying with them.
ps. you can feed the ducks as well !!
Bernard and Michael are most welcoming and it was a joy to stay in their comfortable, well situated and beautifully appointed home. Bernard delights in seeking out top tips for travel/activities/general London ideas and nothing was too much trouble for him. At the same time, we never felt anything other than completely relaxed and free to do our own thing. This is a tricky balance for a host to strike and Bernard and Michael manage it perfectly - they are ideal hosts! We also very much enjoyed and appreciated the eclectic mix of art, objects, fixtures, fittings and plants in the flat! A stay here, in our opinion, is far superior to a hotel or traditional B&B and having one's own bathroom is the icing on the cake. We'd highly recommend a sty in this flat to anyone seeking peace and quiet with great connections to the city.
Super place to stay! Bernard and Michael are very friendly, kind and helpful. Through their valuable tips and suggestions, our holiday great and we have become a 'real' London seen. It's a short walk to the tube, but from there a good connection to the center.
Super plek om te verblijven!!
Bernard en Michael zijn erg vriendelijk, lief en behulpzaam.
Door hun waardevolle tips en suggesties, is onze vakantie geweldig geworden en hebben we ook een 'echter' Londen gezien.
Het is wel een stukje lopen naar de Tube, maar vandaar uit een prima verbinding naar het centrum.
Bernard and Micheal were perfect hosts for us :) They answered every question had lovley ideas, what you can do if you are in London.
The room is lovley. If i will do B&B again in London i wouldnt think a minute where to book just book again at their flat :)
Bernard and Michael were so accommodating, fun and thoughtful. They always had advice if we needed it, and were so knowledgeable about lovely London. The flat was charming, clean, comfortable and welcoming. Their personalities made us feel even more at home. We can't thank them enough for making our trip so wonderful. if anyone is going to stay in london for vacation, we very highly recommend staying here. We guarantee that you will leave with a smile on your face, and London in your heart.
I'm very sorry I had to cancel my booking. All the communication with Bernard was absolutely fantastic and so helpful, even though we never met. I look forward to one day having the chance to meet these guys and sample their obviously great hospitality.
