Balham rail station and underground are a 10-15 minute walk away. I can't tell you about how it works for cars or parking. I had not been to Balham before. Its shopping...

I stayed here for one night and everything was good being a B&B. The lady on the front desk was very courteous and helpful. As parking is considered to be non existent in London I was offerend a parking inside this place so that solved a big issue.

Stayed for one night as part of two couples. Both our room and the other couples room were lovely. The furnishings, the look and feel of the rooms were very nice. This was true of the hotel as a whole! The staff were friendly and very helpful. The nearest tube station a 15/20 mins walk but plenty to do in...

We booked on booking.com and didn't really have high hopes. Well a good 15 minutes walk from the tube and what a lovely surprise, beautiful...

The B&B is well situated (direct bus route from Balham station and right by a nice park) and very clean and comfortable. The rooms are a good size and all en-suite. The staff were welcoming and helpful - the reception desk is open 24hrs a day. Downsides: the walls are very thin so you hear people coming and going on...

The building itself is Edwardian which has been tastefully refurbished with modern facilities inside whilst keeping the Edwardian character outside. Very clean room with en suite bath & power shower, WC and basin. Included are towels, shampoo and shower gel. Comfortable bed with...

Have spent three nights here. Rooms are nicely decorated and spotlessly clean and beds are comfy. Staff have been very friendly and helpful. There is a wonderful breakfast each morning. It is a ten minute walk to the shops, eateries and train. A bus stop is outside. A great place to base yourself for easy access into London.
