OUR RENTAL GUEST COMMENTS:

We had a great time at Lancaster Court from the moment David greeted us. We have stayed in London a number of times in the past, but always at soulless, cramped and usually noisy hotels. Lancaster Court is opposite in every respect. Very pleasant, well fitted out apartment, spacious, secure and quiet, yet in the heart of everything. It’s hard to believe its so close to Oxford Street. The surrounding streets have much to offer, with good restaurants, cafes, pubs, and supermarkets. We would love to return one day, and will definitely recommend it to our friends. Henry and Dianne Walker.

I write to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your lovely apartment. We visit London regularly and stay in apartments, if we are staying for more than two nights. Lancaster Court is the nicest apartment we have stayed in. Many places feel very sterile, but your apartment is so homely with such thoughtful, quirky decor, bright colours, good quality fixtures and fittings, with all rooms being bright light and airy. We were very touched to see fresh flowers in the flat and also to be given milk, kitchen roll and useful basics, like tea and coffee, in the kitchen. The personal touches make a real difference. Needless to say the location is fantastic. Mark, who met us was really friendly and helpful, as you have been, and the flat was exactly like the pictures. Judy Heron

We have had a brilliant stay. Over the years we've stayed at many apartments throughout Europe and USA and your apartment is certainly one of the very best. Everything is as described and we found it to be very comfortable and extremely well equipped. We would love to stay here again on our next visit to London and will certainly recommend to our friends. Nick Holmes

The flat was a hidden jem, in the heart of London city. It was completely affordable too, especially considering its location and the amenities that were provided. The flat itself was lovely - beautiful rooms and a brilliant kitchen that's well equipped for home cooking. The neighbours were lovely too. David, Jonathan's brother was helpful and showed us everything the flat had to offer and gave us the keys. Jonathan has been a pleasure to deal with, and I will be recommending this apartment to everyone I know who is looking to stay in London. Newton

We had an amazing time and the flat was beautiful. Newton Velji

We had a brilliant time in London and loved Lancaster Court. After long days of being a tourist it was great to have such a cosy, well-equipped place to return to. The area was fantastic - lots of bars and restaurants right on the doorstep and very convenient. All the fittings were good quality - lovely comfortable bed and sofa. It was good to have a couple of supermarkets close by, too. We have stayed in lots of self-catering places and this is one of the good ones. Anne Boyd

Mary and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your wonderful apartment in Fitzrovia - it had everything we had wanted and more: a wonderful position, great facilities and we loved having an early evening drink on the roof top deck. Wendy Handley

We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The apartment was comfortable, attractive and convenient for us. We especially appreciated all the little touches, such as the fresh flowers, books, CDs, DVDs etc, which made us feel very much at home. We had plenty of towels, linen and the kitchen stocked everything we needed and more! Many thanks for your contribution to our London holiday. I certainly will recommend your apartment to friends coming across from Australia. Michelle Wareham, Oz

We had a wonderful time at the apartment and think it is perfectly situated and has everything one would need. David and Suzanne Simmonds

I wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience we had at your apartment. It was clean, cozy and very thoughtful in its decor. We appreciate how professional you are and had a lovely stay in London. I will definitely love to return. Thank you so much. Milinda Zumpano, Spike TV

We really did have a lovely time at your place. The apartment was well equipped, spacious and charming. I especially enjoyed the small details in decoration: the posters, little waving Queen and Titanic memorabilia etc. The location is really handy. Your housekeeper was very nice and efficient. We will definitely return and I am also going to recommend you to my friends when they need a good quality place for reasonable price. Susanna Yla-Pynnonen

The apartment was great, thanks for everything. I have sent a link to a bunch of people, we loved the place and the location. We will definitely rent from you next time we're in London, thanks SO much. Ben Rayl

Just wanted to say we had a fabulous time in London and the apartment was immaculate and in an ideal location. I've never stayed anywhere as well kitted out, so congratulations; you have thought of everything. If we decide to return to London in the future, we will definitely be in touch. Lisa O’Neill

We had a lovely stay at Lancaster Court. It was fabulous to be so close to everything in London. Rebecca Richardson

Thanks again for a wonderful stay, the apartment and location was just perfect! The decor was beautiful Very cool! Elaine Laing

We had a fantastic stay at Lancaster Court. The location is ideal for accessing all manner of London entertainment/restaurants/museums and was so easy to get back to late at night after theatre etc. Brilliantly equipped, much more than we needed. Sheena Cornish

We loved this apartment! The location is excellent for all our activities, from sightseeing to restaurants and grocery shopping for breakfasts and late-night snacks at 'home.' The apartment was just what we expected from the description. David was very accommodating and friendly, making us feel very welcome and right at home. We definitely recommend this apartment and would rent again if we come back to London; it was so much better than being in a hotel ... it was home away from home. Kate Harmon

We loved the apartment, the equipment and its location. We discovered many nice places to eat and shop in Soho and Clerkenwell. It’s much better than using the underground. Just around the corner we found the Odeon. We will definitely recommend your apartment to friends and family. Wijnand Galema

About Jonathan Willis

The owner is an entrepreneur who works in film and TV as a producer and executive producer on UK independent movies, and originates stories and formats.

Jonathan Willis purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Jonathan Willis chose Fitzrovia

The apartment is located in the heart of 'Fitzrovia' (a neighbourhood celebrated for its excellent restaurants), which lies between Marylebone to the West and Bloomsbury to the East. This historically bohemian area was once home to such writers as Virginia Woolfe, George Bernard Shaw, Dylan Thomas and Arthur Rimbaud, and is more latterly known as a media and advertising hub. A 200-yard walk to the South will take you over Oxford Street into Soho and Mayfair. To explore London on foot, you could not be better situated. Here, the whole of the city is on your doorstep.

The property has been the home of many celebrities, including actor Sir David Jason OBE and BBC TV presenter Kirsty Wark.

What makes this apartment unique

There is a lovely roof terrace with Heal's outdoor furniture, table, chairs, benches and a sun shade. It's a superb environment in which to relax, unwind, read, sunbathe or to use as a place to allow the children to play. Very few other residents in the block ever use the space.

Our intention is to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible; and memorable, too. There are cheaper apartments around, but none where you will feel more at home, surrounded by top-quality furnishings, every appliance and a thousand personal touches. This is 5-star self-catering accommodation.

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time in this apartment. The beautiful furniture and immaculate decor made this the perfect setting for our stay in London. The location was excellent too, being close to Oxford Street for all of our retail therapy needs, and near to Goodge Street for the delicious cafes and restaurants.

When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed. The apartment was well-presented and extremely clean. When we were shown around, clear instructions were given about how to make the most of the facilities. We really appreciated the thoughtful touches: the milk in the fridge, the lovely flowers, the great collection of DVDs and pocket guide to London.

The kitchen was fully-kitted-out and had a great coffee machine. The sumptuous lounge was really relaxing due to the comfortable sofa and quality television.The bedroom was elegant and perfect for a good night's sleep.

We had such an amazing time at the apartment, that it was hard to leave. We can't wait for our next stay!
