House rulesWe offer this accommodation to people who come to our city for the purpose of visiting, are sensitive enough to understand their allocated space is part of our family home and that Caroline & I are both working and are not professional hoteliers
Anyone who'd like to use our room as a “love nest” for example (e.g. to stay in all the time to only come out just for the bare necessities) or have breakfast at noon, or anything of that ilk, we would recommend several fine hotels in our area but our house is not one of them.
Breakfast is between 8 - 10 am. We can provide in our kitchen a space in the fridge for some drinks but no cooking. You are welcome to use the washing machine if you are staying with us for longer than 7 days.
If you intend to travel by car let us know beforehand to make sure we have the right number of parking vouchers
We would require to take a copy of your passport or photo ID on arrival please.

Reviews of this property
It was all very straightforward and we had a great stay with George and Caroline. They are very courteous, helpful and always have a valuable tip.
The room is very nice, the location in the city center but quiet.
Caroline has the house decorated beautifully.
If we go back to London, then getting to George and Caroline.
Thank you for a great stay in your house!

Das Zimmer ist sehr schön, die Lage in der Stadt zentral und doch ruhig.

Wenn wir wieder nach London reisen, dann immer zu George und Caroline.

We stayed with a most charming hosts. Very attentive, interested and supportive! Breakfast in a lovely conservatory overlooking the green garden now. Nice neighborhood with Victorian houses. Pleasant, tasteful room with a bed (bed). Central London is easily accessible by bus and subway.
Truly a place where you like to go back to.
We logeerden bij een alleraardigste gastvrouw en gastheer. Heel attent, belangstellend en ondersteunend! Ontbijt in een leuke serre met uitzicht op de nu groene tuin. Leuke buurt met victoriaanse huizen. Prettige, smaakvolle kamer met een twijfelaar(bed). Centrum Londen is goed bereikbaar met bus en metro.
Echt een adres, waar je graag naar terug gaat.
Caroline and George are lovely people!
Everything was perfect
Caroline et Georges sont des personnes charmantes !
Tout était parfait
George and Caroline are a couple very welcoming, always available to advise us and discuss. The room and bathroom were clean and neat. Breakfast is provided and very well presented. The house is only 20 minutes from the center of the bus (Picadilly Circus). We had a very enjoyable stay and would not hesitate to return!

Le petit déjeuner est très fourni et bien présenté. La maison se situe seulement à 20 minutes de bus du centre (Picadilly Circus). Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable et n'hésiterons pas à y revenir !
I really enjoyed to stay in George & Carolines beautiful house. They gave me a very warm welcome and helped me all the time with tips which made my staying a lot easier. The both are very friendly and easygoing. The room is quite nice and the atmosphere inside the house is really fantastic as you can already see on the photos. You can reach many central and important places very quick via bus or tube. I really recommend this place to everybody who wants to have a very good time in London. ;)
Staying at George and Caroline feels like coming home. They are very kind, very lovely people and very helpfull, Their Victorian home is warm and everything you will need for a great stay is in there.
After 5 minutes walk, you can take the bus, bringing you to the most beautiful places of London.
We would like to recommend George and Caroline for everybody who wants to see the city of London combined with a warm and pleasant stay.

C'est une très bonne adresse chez Caroline et George. 5 étoiles, c'est la note qui convient pour la qualité de leur offre.
My mom and I had a wonderfull time at George and Carolines. The house was exactly like in the pictures, very tastefull and homely. Everything was right in order, we even had some redberry tea in our room on the night of arrival. George and Caroline and George gave us all sorts of usefull tips, from where to take the bus to more specific ones on where to go, like Kings Road in Knightsbridge. Caroline specifically recommanded the Victoria and Albert museum, which we turned out to love! Furthermore, we had a lovely evening drinking wine and talking. To go short George and Caroline should be in every London guidebook, since they are a real asset to the city! :-)
George and Caroline are considerate, helpful and lovely people.
It´s the third time I staying with them and I feeling there at home :) !
I will definitely come a fourth time to George and Caroline.
Im Herzen von London wurden wir mit einem warmen Lächeln in einer ruhigen Oase begrüßt. Unser Zimmer mit einem Doppelbett und Blick zum Garten sowie schönem Badezimmer lag im 1. Stock. Das reichhaltige Frühstück im Wintergarten haben wir genossen. Bevor wir zu unserem Tagesetappen mit Bus oder Tube aufbrachen, versorgte George uns mit Tipps fürs Bummeln, Besichtigen und Essengehen. Wenn wir nach Hause kamen aus der schönen aber hektischen Londoncity voller Eindrücke, konnten wir bei Tee, der im Zimmer auf uns wartete, auftanken. Immer wieder zu Caroline und George, wenn wir noch mal nach London fahren (... und das machen wir bestimmt, denn diese Stadt ist toll !)
