Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Fitzrovia - A Beautiful Home From Home

A perfect apartment for a holiday or business trip

Fully equipped eat-in kitchen, comfortable lounge with coal-effect gas fire, 42' plasma TV and speedy WiFi broadband, tastefully furnished throughout. Access to a roof terrace with furniture for sunbathing and dining. The property has been our pied a terre for 12 years and was refurbished June 2010.

Only 30 yards from Charlotte Street, with its plethora of brilliant and varied restaurants, bars and pubs.

OUR RENTAL GUESTS’ COMMENTS:

We had a fantastic time in London and at Lancaster Court, and it definitely won´t be the last time that we stay there, if I have any say in the matter! For one thing: the location is perfect! Very central with plenty of good shops, pubs and restaurants close by. Easy access to public transport - both buses and the tube. We were met by Mark, who could not have been more friendly or helpful. Had even bought a pint of milk for us, so we could have a cup of tea! Flat was very clean and tidy, beds were good, with lovely linen and excellent duvet and pillows. Was impressed with DVD selection and also a nice selection of books. We liked the fact that tea, coffee, washing up liquid and the like were available on the understanding that you fill up as needed. It’s a great idea! The flat really felt like a proper home, and not a standard rental flat. Easy to feel comfortable and at home there. Rie Carlsen

Thanks so much for everything that helped make our stay at Lancaster Court one of the most pleasant we have ever had in the UK. From the Christmas Tree to the many thoughtful features. The apartment continually surprised us. Plainly you know what travellers need. I could not have been happier. And meeting Paul was a real pleasure. So thanks. We would love to come back. Richard Harman, NZ

Our stay in your home was simply perfect ! The welcome so kind and complete at our arrival, ideal facilities, so comfortable, admirable pieces of furniture and class in each detail. It will be our choice for our futures stays in London, for sure. Jean-Luc, Isabelle, Mathilde et Martin Reider

We had a great stay in London, and we very much enjoyed the apartment. It was very cozy and convenient, it had everything we needed and Paul was very nice - it was nice to know that someone was close by should there be a problem. The location was perfect for us. I will definitely recommend Lancaster Court to others looking to rent a flat in London. Sigrun Espe

Just to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lancaster Court, the location was excellent and the apartment was a perfect base. It had more equipment than I have at home. Paul greeted us and gave an excellent explanation of everything we needed to know. My sons were very happy to have wifi available. It was like a home from home. Erika Gittins

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your lovely house at Lancaster Court! Everything was perfect and we had lovely time in London. We enjoyed the high standard in the house - everything, from bedding sheets, plates, cutlery, towels etc was of high quality. The books in many languages and DVD's in the library, the furniture, the kitchen, the different bedrooms, the whole style in the house. You have kept the old character and charm of the house, combined with modern facilities, everything was beautiful! We will absolutely return to Lancaster Court in our future visits in London - this is a promise! Vessela Lakselvhaug and family

We all had a lovely time at Lancaster Court! Your apartment was amazing: the best I've seen. We had all we needed. The location was perfect! Paul was very helpful as well. Jennifer Shauger

We had a really nice weekend. Your apartment is splendid in every single way. Loved the furniture, the well-equipped kitchen, the large TV, London brochures. We were well received by Mark and I could communicate with him easily by phone or sms (he brought us tablets for the dishwasher on demand!). I hope to book this apartment again when I am going to London and I will recommend it to friends and relatives. Anne-Marie van het Erve

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

We spent a fantastic holiday in your property, it was sort of perfect! We have been travelling to London quite often, but never stayed in a place like yours: close to all facilities and very, very quiet at night. Hartmut Fleig

We had a fabulous weekend at Lancaster Court, thank you. We thought the apartment was delightful and in such a great location. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to have a mini-break in the centre of town. Catherine Cartwright

We enjoyed our London visit very much, in large part due to your flat. Very convenient and so well located. Andrew Sion

Thank you so much for the perfect Christmas stay. The whole family loved it, from its cozy feel to the perfect location to everything in London. Amerio Family

We came down to London last year, but wanted to stay in a more central location this time. I have to say that the apartment was fantastic! It had everything we needed and the well-equipped kitchen and DVD collection were the icing on the cake! The best thing was that it was quiet, considering its proximity to Oxford Street and also lovely and warm. We loved the fact that it was a family home and felt welcoming. Paul was great and had everything spotless for our arrival. Julie Tarn

Your apartment was lovely and so close to all the things we wanted to do. Maria Dell

The flat far exceeded our expectations. It was clean and comfortable and the location is great. We enjoyed looking at what you had on the walls and your furniture was also fascinating to us. Thanks again, and there is no question we will be back. Al Hemond

We were 6 people and a baby, so this flat was so suitable for our large family. We were especially happy about the kitchen equipment, because I'm preparing food for my 10-month-old baby. We also love the flat's decoration, and the beds were so comfy. The guy who met us was so kind, called David. The flat's location is excellent, right next to Oxford Street. Behind the flat there are many shops, so whenever we needed something it was easily obtained. If we have a chance to go to London again, I'd choose this flat again without any hesitation. Emil Dvorjak

wanted to say we had a fabulous time in London and the apartment didn't disappoint: it 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 ONeill

We enjoyed such a good time at your apartment. Everything was perfect for the large family. Gülçin

Thank you for your hospitality – we really enjoyed our stay at Lancaster Court.

We’ve already recommended it to our friends and will surely return ourselves. Our kids already call it “our London home”! Minna Saario & Family

Our stay was perfect: really good time we spent in London. Many thanks for your hospitality. Lubos Gajdos

We have just arrived back from our trip and Lancaster Court, which was the very best!!!! We found ourselves as if we were at home; we enjoyed your movies, as it is our hobby as well; breakfasts and dinners in the comfortable kitchen. Everything was exactly as we expected. It is a charming and cozy apartment, especially for us, a family of six with grown up girls and boys, as everything was around the corner! We will choose Lancaster Court on our next visit to London. Andres Cripovich

We had a really wonderful time at Lancaster Court - it was absolutely perfect. Natalie

so much better than staying in a plush hotel!

  • 5 out of 5
The whole experience from beginning to end was a joy - and so easy.

As soon as we enquired Jonathan came back to us promptly with answers to all the questions that we had.

The housekeeper Mark, phone and texted us on the morning of our arrival which was a nice touch and then he met us at the apartment and showed us around.

As soon as we walked in, we could tell that this was a special place which had been kitted out in quality furniture and fittings - everything was top class from the huge TV to the angle poise lights, beds and wardrobes, to a fully equipped kitchen with more appliances than we have at home!

The location is exceptional, just off Oxford Street and backing on to Charlotte Street with its many restaurants. Its a short walk to Covent Garden and Theatre land - no need to get taxis or use the tube

It was just delightful - thank you Jonathan.

We'll be in touch to stay again

Fantastic and comfortable home in the heart of the action

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 5 ( kids aged 12, 8 and 5) loved our stay here. We were able to walk to shops along Oxford street, cafés, the tube, British Museum, and a short bus or tube ride to other attractions. The apartment is beautifully decorated and the beds are so comfortable. Lounge was also a great place to relax, great DVD library for kids when they woke early, I enjoyed the books and even read one from cover to cover - great to unwind. Kitchen had everything you needed and was a delight to make breakfasts and the odd dinner, although you have a great choice of restaurants and pubs nearby. It was nice to come home to a house that was thoughtfully and pleasantly decorated and not filled with old cast offs. The house was very clean. The main bedroom had some noise from the street but just background noise and the other two bedrooms face the courtyard and we're very quiet.

The owner, Jonathan, was a pleasure to deal with and answered lots of questions and provided helpful links. We wanted to spend a day in Bath and he sent us the link to book tickets, our day there was a real highlight, bath is gorgeous and lunch at the pump house didn't disappoint. The housekeeper Paul was very good to deal with and waited patiently for us when we were a bit late arriving.

Jonathan's brother, David, also has a similar apartment in Venice, which borders a canal. We had the pleasure of staying there too and can recommend that too. These brothers know what they are doing.

I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone and would book it again in a heartbeat.

Lovely in Every Way

  • 5 out of 5
We could not have been more pleased with this amazingly lovely and comfortable flat in the heart of London. All the rooms were beautifully decorated, full of charming, quality furnishings and personal touches---if you are looking for something more than an anonymous space filled with stuff from Ikea and Costco, this is the place for you! Everything was spotless and in great shape, and the kitchen fully equipped. The owners and their caretaker were all wonderful to work with and made the whole process (even coming from overseas) simple and easy. It was truly one of my favorite VRBO rentals in all my years of traveling, and truly a bargain at any price.

Fantastic Apartment. A home away from home!

  • 5 out of 5
We have had a fabulous stay at Lancaster Court for 5 days/nights over New Year's.

The accommodation is spacious and more than does justice to the photos provided. It was perfect for my wife, 15 year old daughter and 12 year old son with 3 sizeable bedrooms, a nice sized kitchen/dining (complete with the queen on the window sill!) and a big living area, so we all had room to enjoy the place. It has some lovely pieces in it and the new floorboards (as no longer carpeted as in the main picture) give it a real family home feel so you're just as happy being inside, as well as out and about in London itself.

It is incredibly well stocked. Milk in the fridge on arrival, tea, coffee and domestic products available. It makes a big difference to have some of those basics there from the start until you can out to the supermarket to stock up yourself (Waitrose, M&S and Tescos are only a 5-10 minute walk away).The location is perfect, with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops within 2 minutes walk to Charlotte Street and the nearest tube (Goodge Street) is only about 4 or 5 minutes walk away.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Lancaster Court to our family and friends and I've recommended it as a consideration for our company employees instead of hotel stays for future trips. A home away from home

Perfect location and perfect apartment

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment was absolutely perfect! We went with our family of 5 (three children - 10, 13 and 16) and had a great stay. The apartment has everything you could wish for and everything is functioning. It's a few minutes walk to Oxford street and Soho and the immediate surroundings are lively and absolutely charming. Restaurants, pubs, cafes, shops and grocery stores. The next time we come to London we would definitely stay here again.
