Property description

~ ~ ~ Castletown House Apartments ~ ~ ~

We operate our apartments with service in mind and look forward to welcoming our guests to London to show them what the city has to offer and for them to have a relaxing time whilst away from the busy city centre.

Our collection of apartments comprise of studio, one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom apartments, most of which are located within Castletown House's main building, although we do now look after a couple of other units on Perham Road, and Bramber Road, just a few minutes from our main building.

Castletown House is a family run business, and we strive in making a guests stay with us a positive and enjoyable one, and have received many reviews online over the years, although we have a limited selection on this website, a simple search will bring up plenty of other reviews for an expanded view on Castletown House.

Our entrance has a small reception desk, free payphone for either Richard or myself, as well as being able to make local calls (charged) should the need arise, we also have pamphlets and maps to help you become orientated. Although Castletown House offers private self catering apartments as I work on site I am often around should you need anything or simply some advice on where to go I am happy to be of assistance.

Our studio units are ideal for two people, and as a self contained apartment with open plan kitchen allowing guests to prepare light to heavy meals from the comfort of their own home, with the exception of the basis studio all apartments have a washer / dryer within them making taking care of any washing a non issue.

Our family studio is a ground floor larger unit with separate kitchen, ideal for two people and with the capability to accommodate a family of four utilising the sofa bed.

Our one bedroom apartments are situated over three floors, and all similar in layout and presentation, they can accommodate up to four people with the addition of the sofa bed.

Our two bedroom unit is a lower ground unit with private entrance and rear patio, as well as private laundry room, and games machine.

Our three bedroom apartment is great for larger groups, situated on the third floor, with dining space, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room and open plan kitchen as well as PlayStation 3 with DVDs and Games to play.

Close to the heart of London in the sought after area of West Kensington and Barons Court, you can enjoy the comforts of home, with no hotel restrictions, ideal for leisure and business breaks, where privacy and comfort are a number one priority. We have been awarded a Self Catering 3* holiday rating from the London Tourist Board, which means you can expect a high level of service and comfort, as well as offering affordability in an expensive city .

Our nearest Underground stations are West Kensington (2 Minutes) or Barons Court (5 minutes) - Both Earls Court & Olympia Exhibition Centres are nearby and within walking distance. London's major attractions are around 20 to 30 minutes away via good local transport links, including the underground, overground and London bus network.

All apartments are fully furnished with excellent facilities, these include; flat screen television - radio/ I pod dock - hair dryer - shaver point - fridge/freezer - cooker/hob - microwave - kettle/toaster - washing machine - iron & ironing board - internet / WiFi access, also includes all linen and towels for a weeks stay, with a weekly cleaning service, and shorter stays on request and charged for.

*Please note; a one week minimum applies over the Christmas and New Year Period, and other restrictions may apply at other busy periods. Our basic studio has no washing machine or oven.

Our apartments are also close to a local market with fresh fruit, vegetables, as well as established fish mongers and butchers which we can direct you to. It is a locals market with a local feel so certainly worth checking out.

West Kensington is an area to feel like a local, be it in a local pub, or down the market mixing with all the residents buying their food for the week, and being so close to Central London it is an ideal way to see London from two perspectives, as well as being an ideal business base for those working in Hammersmith, or Olympia.

We hope you choose Castletown House for your upcoming stay in London.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: My Father & I have been running Castletown House for a number of years, and although you'll see more of me than Richard these days, we both live close to the apartments and are on call should the need ever arise. We enjoy meeting new people from near and wide, and hope to welcome you to our apartments soon and you may on occasion spot me in the great local pub the Curtains Up mixing with friends, locals and other guests, whoever's around really! Having studied Hospitality Management at both Oxford Brookes and University of Central Florida working within the family business made the next logical step for myself and it has been a rewarding and interesting line of work to be in, and it certainly keeps me busy! In my spare time I like to travel, and see my friends in London. I was born in London and enjoy what the city has to offer with a passion! I like to see upcoming events and concerts, although I must admit its been some years since I went inside the Towel of London! An absolute must in London in my opinion, though I do love a Castle! You could say I work in one... well not quite but the names there! I would love to hear from you if your thinking about coming to London to see if our apartments might suit your needs, with multiple units we can make what seems the impossible, possible, with shared floors and multiple sleeping arrangements available to you please feel free to e mail any questions you may have about staying with us for your visit to London.

Why West Kensington (London, UK):
We have managed this building within the family for a number of years, and we strive to make each guests an enjoyable one. Castletown House is an entire building dedicated to short term visitors to London, for both business and leisure purposes, and we are on site daily Monday to Friday for advice and assistance should you need it. I believe the building is a Victorian town house built around the turn of the 20th Century, converted from what would of been originally a one family house! That's five floors, including the lower level and third floor three bedroom apartment. My Father will have you believe it was the local vicars house as we are directly opposite a Church building that he would of worked at! How much truth is in that is for you to decide, but I do know that Ghandi lived just a few minutes away, his plaque his visible outside informing passers by that he lived there whilst being a law student in London. The apartments are designed for travellers in mind, and is set up upon arrival with all the kitchenware, linen and towels you should need for your stay, they would be ideal for families, as well for business guests. West Kensington is an area slightly away from the touristy area of Earls Court which is still just one stop away, and so feels more of a local area, with easy access to nearby areas should you want to find something a little more lively. Everything can reached easily from Barons Court and West Kensington station.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Castletown House is a well established apartment complex in West Kensington. The property is set within a Victorian townhouse which has been converted into short term apartments set over five floors. The area is a residential area with a few local pubs and restaurants that guests will enjoy with the locals themselves. A family business, the property has great meaning to us and we hope that you will enjoy your stay with us as much as we enjoy hosting guests from around the world. Free Wi Fi in all apartments.
