Recent London reviews

  • Great option for visiting London!

    "Our one week stay at Peter's apartment was fantastic. Everything you see in the pictures is 120% true. My wife and our 3 kids had a great time in London. Staying at Gainsborough Apartments was the best decision, we could relax and feel at home, have breakfast before heading to the city and dinner in our way back, this helped the trip to be very enjoyable and kept us on our budget. All connections via Bus, Tube, Train are accesible, just walking half a block and off we were to our many tours. Peter provides amazingly detailed guides and recommendations on everything you need. Convenience store is on the same building, where you can find everything for meals, snacks, beer, wine, so no worries at all about the kids being hungry... The level of service includes Sky TV, phone with unlimited calls to USA and many other countries, so we could call our family without extra costs. If you are planning to travel to London, this is the best choice!!!!"

  • Great unit, great location - lovely people!

    "Stayed at this beautiful unit in a great street in Paddington, London. Plenty of room for the five of us (all adults) and close to shops, restaurants and transport. It has a nice kitchen for our home cooked breakfasts and dinners. I had to contact Carl (owner) about a couple of things we needed and he ironed them out really quickly for us with no fuss. Both Carl and Liz were great to deal with. We will definitely be staying there again. Highly recommend."

  • Thank you Tricia

    "I am normally a meticulous planner but when a late change in plans brought my family of four to London during Christmas it was a scramble to find a suitable flat. While responses were few among owners Tricia went to considerable lengths to get the flat in order and the keys delivered on short notice. We cannot thank her enough for her efforts over a very busy time of year. After some travel hectic days we were very relieved to find that the flat suited our needs. Although it’s a 4th floor walk-up the reward is a spectacular view of the London skyline. The winter sun streamed into the flat as we enjoyed our morning coffee from the espresso machine while listening to the BBC through the excellent sound system. The flat is well appointed and no need to bring guidebooks as there an extensive library available for use. There is one small bedroom and our boys were fine on the couches. As noted by others the shower can be a challenge for taller folks but you get the hang of it after a couple days. The flat and neighborhood is quiet and local services abound. The Tesco Express around the corner was all we needed for eat-in meals and morning pastries. We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner at Olivers and later in the week at The Hill pub at the end of the street. The Chalk Farm tube stop is a short walk down the hill. With the tube shut down on Christmas it was no problem walking south over Primrose Hill into Regents Park and looping back through Camden Town. We have rented in London before but after this stay and after enjoying the view I cannot imagine staying anywhere else."

  • Beautiful flat in London

    "We had a wonderful stay in this flat while we were in London for 2 months. The location was perfect and within walking distance to the tube and many bus stops. It is a 10 minute walk to Portobello where there are a ton of great shops, restaurants and pubs. There is a great market and deli that we went to almost every day for coffee and breakfast. The flat itself was lovely and very efficient. The decor is very cute and very kid friendly. There was a pac n play, highchair and a bunch of toys and books for the kids to use. Bunty and Ian are the nicest people and were so hospitable. We would not stay anywhere else when we come back. We miss it already."
