Hi I am an Interior and Fashion designer and with my husband Matthew ( a food gourmet) we have recently renovated this wonderful old listed building. Attention to detail was of utmost importance to us. We have created a home away from home for people to visit london. It is a large apartment and we have called it the London suite. We have put in a large bathroom with an extra large shower to relax in. Our decked roof terrace is perfect for a romantic dinner The subway into the centre is only 5 minutes away and we are 20 mins door to door to Trafalgar square and Big Ben. Please visit our website londonsuite for a more detailed description
Matthew purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Matthew chose Newington
We chose to renovate this flat here because it is perfect for a fun and relaxed visit to central london. It is a local area and is a good way to see the real London. We are close to the river Thames and all of central London, only 15 mins walk from Big ben which is a great walk across Westminster bridge. The Flat is in a historical London building with its own private entrance and security alarm. We have many good restaurants and authentic English pubs around and we are a short walk to The Old Vic theatre the Southbank and the National Theatre which has some of the best music and theatre in the country. Borough food market 10 mins walk away, is a gastronomic treat full of Organic and gourmet foods. Bermondsey antique market has been going for 200 years and is about 15 minutes walk and is full of bargains on a friday morning
What makes this Apartment unique
Newly renovated with utmost attention to detail. Designer furniture, super comfortable King size bed with goose down duvets, Egyptian cotton sheets, soft carpets and original art works. This is a unique and special place to stay

Four weeks of UK travel for 6 geriatric (almost) Aussies culminated at this Kennington flat. We loved the bedrooms, the beds, the bathroom (fantastic), the kitchen, small but sufficient, lounge good, but better for 5. Also loved the little outside patio (when the weather cleared) It was central to trains and the nearby War Museum was a contact point for hop-on hop-off bus. Only negative was going up and down for toilet but we managed. Matthew was delightful and very helpful and there was a good supply of towels .
Convenient Location, Plenty of Space
The unit is three levels with a room on each level. It is very convenient to the Elephant and Castle station. It was in good shape and the owner was very responsive.
EVERYONE IN OUR FAMILY LOVED IT...Great Place!
With a family of 5 we needed separate beds for each of our three adult children, ages 25, 23 & 20 and this place fit the bill, PERFECTLY! Great flat with a bedroom on each of three levels so we each had plenty of privacy. The large sofa bed on the first floor had an extra mattress pad to put on top of the sofa pull-out, which my daughter said made a comfortable difference, 2 double beds on the second floor bedroom for our older sons and a master with a king-sized bed on the third floor for Mom and Dad. Honestly, I was worried with just one bathroom but its spaciousness and 3rd floor privacy was more than adequate and presented none of the problems that had concerned me before we arrived. 2nd floor kitchen is well equipped and very functional. We stopped by the convenient TESCO Market ea. night on the way home from the Kennington tube station for groceries to make a big breakfast before ea. day of our London sight-seeing. Breakfast was the only meal we ate there. There is a small outdoor patio with table & chairs which would be terrific in good weather, but we were there in winter so it was not as useful for us, but provided the extra chairs we needed around the breakfast table ea. morning and for discussing our schedule together ea. night for the next day. One point that others have noted is that the DRYER function of the washer/dryer combination really doesn't work like our US dryer but a drying rack was available so air-drying wet clothes worked seamlessly for us. No lift in the flat, but stairs are quite manageable with three men to do any of our heavy lifting for large bags.
Location is very convenient for using the TUBE! Just a 7 minute walk to the Kennington or Elephant & Castle tube stations. The Kennington station has a lift-so we recommend that one if you are coming in with large luggage.
Can't say enough about our Irma, the property manager and our hosts, Matthew & Helen. Our initial arrival was much later than we expected and Irma was waiting there for us w/o complaint. Our departure the last day was in the evening and Irma's accommodations for our luggage after check-out time while the flat was being cleaned and prepped for the next guests went above and beyond. This only cemented our feeling that this was a perfect fit for our needs and we can recommend this flat without the slightest hesitation. Very accessible, helpful and accommodating! Overall, a great place/location for our trip to London- highly recommend it!
You and your family been pleasure to have. Thank you for staying and we hope to see you back soon!
Perfect, perfect, perfect!!
I searched for a long time to find a place that was not only close to nearby places but something that would be comfortable for our family. This place was exactly what I wanted! It was so modern and cozy, having everything you could possibly need. The tube station is literally down the street and there are tons of restaurants and a grocery store nearby! Matthew and his manager Irma went above and beyond for us, checking in on us throughout the week to see if we needed anything and even helping us order a taxi at 4:30am to get back to the airport! If you need a nice place to stay that's affordable, choose this one!
Thank you so much Kristen for staying and leaving great review. Was pleasure having you and your family and hope to welcome you back in the near future. Best regards , Matthew
All had fabulous trip
Easy and quick communications with Matthew, found the property easily and Irma was waiting to show us the flat when we dropped off our bags. With 5 of us staying there was plenty of room within the flat, good kitchen space, ample room in bedrooms and great shower. Flat central enough with easy tube links to everywhere (Kennington station 5 mins). Thanks really enjoyed our visit.
Was pleasure having you Fraser family . Thank you for a great review and hope to see you soon again!
Checks all the boxes
We stayed at this property in October 2017 while travelling through Europe. We are a Canadian family of two adults and three children aged 9-13.
Meetup: Irma met us promptly at the expected time and was gracious and helpful. She showed us around and explained the apartment.
Apartment: The apartment was a multi-level apartment with 3 separate floors beginning one floor from ground level. There were fresh sheets and the apartment was well organized. We really liked the look and feel of the apartment, although the apartment was bit more run down than we were expecting with stains on the carpets and slight feeling of regular use. The beds were comfortable and this is important for us. We really enjoyed the shower which had a large rainfall head.
Amenities: There was a small fridge, microwave, a combination washer/dryer that struggled to dry in reasonable time, all the dishes we needed, and TV and cable box that could support Netflix.
Nearby: The apartment was close to restaurants, shopping, and grocery stores. It is just a few minutes from two different Metro lines. There was an attached restuarant in the same building that provided an amazing breakfast for us.
Less than perfect: The carpets were a bit stained, and the place was slightly run down, but this didn’t affect our enjoyment after the first few minutes. This may be true of all London apartments, but we can only judge based on our own experiences. Maybe replacing a couple of carpets would restore it to its former glory. The dryer was not effective at drying compared to our own equipment at home. The apartment was not stocked with a coffee maker and coffee ready to make for the tired traveller.
Overall: We would recommend this apartment, despite the less than perfect observations above. It was clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. We were lucky to have such a great place to stay.
Thank you so much for a great review . Was pleasure having you and your beautiful family. I am happy to hear you have had a great experience and enjoyed your stay. I am sorry regarding carpets and dryer .We have improved since with stocking up the cupboards with essentials , professionally cleaned carpets.
We hope to welcome
you back soon !
We are very close to the center. You can walk to Big Ben, the London eye , The Old Vic theatre, The River Thames , Borough market, the Imperial war museum ,Tate modern all just minutes away. Bermondsey antiques market is nearby .Boat rides down the Thames are at Westminster pier.
We have a fully stocked supermarket 3 mins away for groceries. Kennington subway/tube station is a short walk and there are trains and buses to all over London from just outside. The house is really central!
Great restaurants and old English pubs are nearby. All very good value and not tourist prices ! The best sushi is just below !
We love the area and think it is one London's undiscovered gems.... a great place to escape the buzz of London.
