“Excellent stay for my first time in London”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Room clean albeit quite small, bed comfortable, friendly staff and a lovely hot cooked breakfast at a very reasonable price for London, and in a lovely quiet area - would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.

My partner and I stayed at this welcoming guest house on a Saturday and were surprised with how helpful and friendly the staff were and treated extremely well by the owner John.
We had a fantastic nights stay in a very comfortable bed, the room was quirky especially like the hidden toilet and sink..(great for jumping out from as a little joke... :) ) The shared showers were very clean!!

The location was ideal, walking distance to all the main shops and night life in Clapham junction and 5 mins walk from the station. Although it is walking distance the location of the guest house was on a quiet street.

I would definitely recommend any friends or family to stay here and look forward to staying here gain in the future. A memorable place to stay for all the right reasons!!

Room Tip: Request a room on the 1st/2nd floor as you will have less noise from people entering and leaving the...

Excellent for the price, easy access to central London, short walk to under ground, lots of shops near by. Sink is in one wardrobe, toilet in the other (their cheapest room) so not suitable for anyone of big build or likes considerable privacy. But for us, it was just a girly weekend and out most of the time, so perfectly adequate. Bed comfy. Breakfast was also nicely done considering the cost of the rooms. They get booked up quickly and a long way in advance.....speaks for itself!.

I had to spend the week in Clapham for work and came across this B&B as it was near the office. I had room 5 which was perfect and for the price, amazing value. There were twin beds, and then tucked behind what looked like wardrobes, was a very clean toilet and sink. I did share the shower with one other room, but it was always empty and very clean when I needed it. Overall, I felt very safe and looked after by John and his staff and I'll make this a home from home when I have to work nearby again.

Room Tip: No road noise in room 5 as double glazing.

We felt very lucky to have found the Lavender Guest House. It was welcoming, clean, comfortable, quiet and perfectly located. The breakfast was adequate.

We needed a base from which to do some sight-seeing and for visiting friends, and this suited our purpose perfectly. Close to the rail station and with several bus routes within minutes we couldn't go wrong.

An assortment of good restaurtants and pubs nearby to suit all tastes.

We will return, and would very much recommend it.
