Kensington & Chelsea apartment description

We are located on Abingdon Road, London W8, one of London's premier addresses, and near neighbours to William & Kate (and George) who have moved in down the road. Abingdon Road is a peaceful and quiet street despite being minutes from the centre of things.

If you do not know London well, the old mantra of 'Location, Location, Location' means a great deal in this city. Also look carefully at the size of your rental. Spending a week in a tiny studio apartment or even a small one-bedder can prove to be a little miserable. We are fortunate in being able to offer our guests much more room than most, plus a gorgeous terrace.

We attach great store to what our guests tell us. In fact we are fortunate to have many reviews left by our guests. Here are some of the comments from recent guests:

'...it was incredible and better than I ever imagined.' B&CS, AZ
'Part of the fun was sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine taking in London!' DH, CA
'the apartment and location were both excellent. We had a great time.' L&HN, CAN
'...very conveniently located and well appointed to suit our every need. I could have stayed 3 months!' M&CW, NZ
'It is particularly nice to be able to conveniently contact people from home free on the phone' M&MLH, OR
'Congratulations on a very nice apartment....you have thought of everything and it is very comfortable.....' PHF, AUS

We are proud of our apartment; and want you to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible, so we have tried to think of everything. The apartment is located one up from ground and is the entire floor of a converted Victorian house. There is no elevator, but the 15 or so stairs are not taxing.

We have a comfortable four-poster double bed with a luxurious mattress and we believe in providing the finest Egyptian cotton sheets, which get many a favourable comment from our guests. Even the large double sofa bed has the same linen and a fully sprung mattress. The bedroom faces the gardens at the rear to ensure that even the lightest sleepers get a good night's sleep.

We have some great local restaurants (check out Whits and W8 Kitchen) and a range of excellent supermarkets within a few minutes walk (Waitrose, Whole Foods etc).

You can also easily walk to High Street Kensington underground station (about 7 mins), the Royal Holland & Hyde Parks, Marks and Spencer, Kensington Palace, or just about any store that you might need.

We are also conveniently located for the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, the Albert Hall, the National Gallery and the principal sites of London (Buckingham Palace, the Eye, Theatres, The Tate, The Thames Walk etc).

As a result most of our guests are regular visitors, often people who are staying for longer and find regular holiday apartments too confined. We are also very popular with honeymoon couples.

We are happy to provide discounts for single business travellers and those who wish to stay for extended periods.

We always provide a personal check-in so that we can orientate you to the area and help you plan the best way to make the most of your stay. And if you need us, we are at the end of a phone.

Our conservatory has blackout blinds the bathroom features a fabulous overhead rain shower. We also have a flat screen TV and DVD player, a printer and a desk full of London guides and information.

You may have heard that London has introduced a new cycle hire scheme - a great way to get around the centre – and we have three docking stations within a couple of minutes walk

Plus we can help with cars from the airport, cell phones for your stay, theatre bookings etc.

We very much look forward to welcoming you and making your stay in London as comfortable as possible.

Mark & Sophia (and the kids!)

              Location

              Remember that London is huge and where you locate yourself makes a significant difference - one mile can be 20-30 minutes of additional travel time.
