Minimal accommodation

  • 2 of 5

While this place was large enough, it had the bare essential. We were given on small, thin towel and hand towel to last the 5 days we were there. They did the job but just barely. The linen cupboard had supplies but we were told not to touch them, we ran low or almost out of toilet paper, the kitchen towels were non even supplied. The kitchen was supplied with either poor or inadequate cooking tools including a frypan that was rusted. The main bedroom had a good bed and was large and roomy but the second bedroom had a small, lumpy, futon mattress that was uncomfortable to say the least. On our arrival the key that was promise to be at the unit was not there and we had to travel over half an hour to pick it up and then back to the unit of over half an in London rush hour, not a good experience for newcomers to the country. Privacy in the ensuite bathroom was very poor as the glazing on the window was gone and the gardener or neighbour could see right in. Furnishings were old and uncomfortable. The location was good, close enough to catch a train into downtown London. In summation not worth the money and communication was very poor. We would not recommend this to friends coming to London.

Flat Needs a Good Cleaning/Great Location/Spacious Flat/Hosts Not Very Considerate

  • 3 of 5

Guests: Family of 5 including two children ages 5 and 9 and an elderly aged 76.

Duration of Stay: 28 nights

Cost: $$$$$

Arrival: 7am (8 hour overnight flight)

Location: Basement.

Flat is located in beautiful, quiet, residential neighbourhood with huge park two houses away. Maze Hill is a stone's throw away to the right, go down for all the shopping you need as well as the beautiful and lively village of Greenwich.

Payment Process: hosts were very accessible and friendly during process.

Arrival: After paying and a few days prior to arrival asked host if he could kindly stock flat with a few breakfast items at a charge to us (groceries can be ordered online).

He said no.

He said there were food shops in the airport and along the route and that we should ask our driver to stop.

We utilised car service recommended - Churchill Cars - the staff is great but they don't have large vans so we paid 190pounds for two vans. On return we used car service down the hill (next to milano's) and got one lg van, pleasant driver and paid 90pounds. Use Churchill if you only need one van.

We arranged for the driver to bring keys he said he didn't receive them - he called host and his office repeatedly as did I it was 9 am by then (drive from airport took almost 2 hrs) NO ANSWER. Luckily driver is familiar with property and as he had hoped - the keys were hidden there.

Host, we found out later, was abroad.

No internet as info on file was outdated. Reached a company representative 5 hrs after arriving at flat after roaming calling to sort this out. We run a business and needed to be online. Had 6 numbers for host, none were answered.

No amenities like toilet paper and soap in bathrooms - used sanitizer when we arrived and kids had to go potty.

No labelled linens (as agreed upon) or cleaning supplies, informed host, received rude response that cleaner left linens somewhere and that we had used upall supplies. Signs in linen closet stated a fine for using linens.

Flat was musty and rugs in foyer and lvg rm extremely dirty. I have pics but see no option to post. Didn't let children sit on lvg rm rug. Foyer rug was so curled it tripped 76 yr old.

No working light in entryway led us to leave lvg room lights on to guide us at night as it was pitch black - we informed host but he never fixed, it was very dangerous on steps at night. Host complained that we left lights on in vacant apt and turned them off, arrived 9:30p

LOVED GREENWICH, WOULD VISIT AGAIN, BUT WON'T STAY HERE.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this dear guest. I have as much as possible provided in detail our and our contractors versions of the points below under different sub-headings. I also wanted to summarise in the nicest possible way our own feelings about this particular stay. The owner and stay were a mismatch. I do not believe the guest really knew what she was renting. The description and details of the advert CLEARLY state a “SELF-CATERED” accommodation where the welcome pack are basic consumables to help the guest settle in. In addition, the advert CLEARLY states that this property is “not suitable for elderly or infirm”. Although we make every effort (sending video clip, brochure and photographs) there is no doubt that the guest CLEARLY wanted something serviced with response times within the hour rather than the day and all frills attached. We might suggest that in the future she look for a SERVICED apartment or Hotel where expectations and service would be more equally matched. Anyway, our side below:- ***Churchill Cars*** The trip in the morning from Heathrow is one hour and fifteen minutes to one hour and half. On the particular morning in question although business hours traffic was free-flowing. I spoke to the driver and he said that effectively a reason why it may have lasted two hours is because of the fact that the guest and family in question had stopped by Marks and Spencers to pick up food and drink. The time we provide on our website is without a stop. In terms of this guest, they were staying for one month. 5 people went in one car and the luggage in the other. They had seven large suitcases with them as well as the usual 1 + carry ons with wheels and there was no way that it would have fitted with the 5 people in the Galaxy. Apparently, according to the driver the family were happy, he was tipped and they wer

A lovely apartment in Greenwich

  • 5 of 5

This was a very comfortable well-appointed apartment, right near Greenwich Park and good for transport. We enjoyed both our stays here. Being a basement flat, it was wonderfully cool during the recent heatwave, and yet there are sufficient windows to give light and pleasant outlooks in the main rooms. The owners were very helpful and responsive. If we come to Greenwich in the future we would love to stay here again.

Great stay, nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this Greenwich apartment. It's decorated nicely, has everything we need, including a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, two bathrooms, three bedrooms and Julian and Francesca were awesome, helping us with any issues we had. Greenwich is a lovely part of town, right next to a beautiful park and there is fairly easy access to groceries and rail stations and bus stations. To get to the tube, you either have a bit of a walk ( twenty minutes or so)or you take the bus. The reason I took off one star is that it really isn't that close to down town London. From the time you leave the apartment, it's at least thirty minutes and often fifty minutes to get where we wanted to go, and includes walking, buses and usually two underground trains.... Depending on where you're going. We didn't mind this, but some people might. The apartment is at the top​ of a hill, all the groceries and most of the bus stops are at the bottom. There's one bus that goes to the top that we used when we could, but it wasn't always the route we needed. We did quite a bit of climbing up and down that hill. It's not a tiny hill. Overall, we loved our stay. The apartment was great and the owners were very helpful. I highly recommend it for families where no one will have trouble with the climb - you don't want to be carrying children or pushing strollers up, unless your very fit.

Great location in Greenwich area.

  • 5 of 5

Great location in the vibrant Greenwich area (right next to the meridian!)

All facilities are provided even the washing machine and dryer.

Very good stay for a family. The owner always listens.

Well placed for visiting London and very well connected by transport (bus, metro, DLR, ferries ...). The farthest point CANDEM MARKET was 50 minutes away.

Our stay was enjoyable for the whole family and we had time to do a lot of things in a week.

We just regret not having met the owner Julian, but his wife told us that he was very busy. Nevertheless, we thank him for his kindness and his availability.

I sometimes get a little too assailed with questions ....

We recommend this apartment for anyone wanting an authentic and relaxing stay in the British capital.

WE LOVED LONDON!

Très bel appartement à Greenwich avec tous les équipements de confort

Très bien placé dans le quartier dynamique de Greenwich (juste à coté du méridien!). Toutes les commodités sont prévues même le lave linge et le sèche linge. Très bon séjour pour une famille. Le propriétaire toujours à l'écoute.

Bien placé pour visiter Londres et très bien desservi par les transports (bus, métro, DLR, ferries...). Le point le plus éloigné CANDEM MARKET était à 50 minutes. Notre séjour était agréable pour toute la famille et nous avons eu le temps de faire beaucoup de choses en une semaine.

On regrette juste de ne pas avoir rencontré le propriètaire Julian, mais sa compagne nous a dit qu'il était très occupé. Néanmoins, nous le remercions pour sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité. Je l'ai parfois un peu trop assailli de questions....

Nous recommandons cet appartement pour tous ceux qui veulent un séjour authentique et reposant dans la capitale britannique.

WE LOVED LONDON !

We are in Central London Zone 2. Greenwich/ Cutty Sark for the DLR and Greenwich North Jubilee Line For the Tube.

1. Other option to move around is with the normal boats or on the over crafts.

2. Greenwich is famous for the Time line, Royal Observatory ,the Tudor Capital of London and also the Naval Centre for most of London's history.

3. Nearest Rail Station is Maze Hill. Maze Hill is 2 minutes from our door. Once on the train it is 15 minutes to Charing Cross, the Centre.

4. The second closest rail link is the overland rail service (Called the Docklands Light Rail DLR) about a 15 minute walk across the park (It has a pretty cool view and you walk past the Royal Observatory and the Naval College). The DLR pass through Canary Wharf the new spectacular financial capital or you can change at a number of stops along the way onto the tube which whisks you in to Parliament Square in about 10 minutes.
