My daughter and I were greeted by Charlotte Dexter the owner who made us feel incredibly welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and furnished to a super high standard. Our stay was brief but...

What a wonderful adventure this guest is experiencing in Europe. Glad that we could have you up for a glass of wine and nibbles to get your plans sorted. Walking 12 miles a day was quite an accomplishment; it is possible to see so much in a day as long as you map it out with a local. We will...

Excellent place to stay! Quiet, clean, modern and great hosts that make you feel very welcome. Close to the underground, buses, and some great restaurants all within a two minute walk. Enjoy tea, coffee, juice and snacks any time of the day. Freshly baked goodies in the morning!

Highly recommend Barclay House in Fulham, a cosy B&B 3 mins from tube but in a quiet leafy road. Our room was brand new, spotlessly clean, small but well equipped with nice touches like bathrobes, quality products. A small kitchenette downstairs lets you make coffee (Nespresso), tea etc and a continental breakfast, owner provides fresh croissants daily. The area is...

Our best recommendation is from a returning guest, so thank you for taking time to share the details that future guests need to know about. Next time you'll have to try Manuka Kitchen for brunch; once tried, you'll return. Elle magazine called us the "perfect pairing"; Boutique B&B at Barclay House London and brilliant brunch at Manuka Kitchen.

Thanks so much for these important details which will help future guests to better understand London accommodation offerings. Based on this review and your discussion with Sigita, as well as our builder who happened to come around, we are looking into adding A/C to that room by next year.
