Fantastic weekend in a beautiful house

  • 5 out of 5
I had booked a surprise weekend for my partners birthday and unfortunately just 4 days before the event our original Penthouse booking was cancelled by the Company; Luckily I came across The Royal Academy Hall and contacted Adrian who was absolutely brilliant, and managed to have our booked confirmed just 12 hours after first contact.

On arrival Adrian met us and gave us a very informative talk about the House and the surroundings including where to go for dinner/breakfast, and this made us feel really at home and confident that our weekend was going to be brilliant.

The House is in a very quiet area, yet there is still a lovely pub/restaurant just around the corner called the 'Dial Arch', we went there for dinner and the food, atmosphere and service was amazing.

There was a very large group of us in the House but there was plenty of room for everyone, and the lovely outdoor terrace upstairs was fantastic for a bit of fresh air.

The House has all the neccessary bits and pieces including an iron and a hair dryer which came in very handy, along with enough cups, glasses, cutlery, plates and bowls for everyone.

All beds were very comfy and we had 2 lovely nights sleep.

I can't thank Adrian more for making our stay really memorable, and I would reccommend this House to anyone hoping to be in a great London location with a large group of friends or family.

I certainly hope we will be able to stay again in the future.

Louise.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot Louise..
We were glad we could help and offer you the accommodation..

As for other people cancelling clients stays at the last minute.. it seems to be a regular thing.
I have another enquiry today.. for this weekend.. apparently the same thing has happened to them.
I hope all the host sites keep an eye on people opperating in an unscrupulous fashion.

Regards

Adrian

Extremely disappointed!!!!

  • 2 out of 5
Highly disappointed!! My family (5 Adults and 2 children) stayed in "The Hall" recently. We have stayed in many self catering homes before and have never been disappointed with a home, until now. Getting the keys and getting into the building was less than convenient and a bit confusing. Once there we had to wait for nearly two hours for the cleaning to be completed. We were left with only one, mostly empty, roll of toilet tissue to get us through the night/morning until we could find a shop and replenish our supply. We also had to call and have someone come tend to the heating as there was none. That took well over an hour. After traveling for over eight hours we just wanted to relax.
The bedroom upstairs can hardly be classified as such. It lacks privacy (open to the downstairs). The double bed was comfy. The other two "beds" were anything but. They were fold away cots that had broken springs. Not even useable. Our children had to resort to sleeping on the sofa. That was less than ideal as either the adults had to retire early or the children were forced to stay up late. The downstairs bedroom was nice enough. The home has been advertised as sleeping 10+. I find that quite an exageration. I would say that it comfortable sleeps 4 with the existing beds.
Apparently, there is a terrace. I cannot comment on it as the door to the terrace was locked and we were unable to use it. How unfortunate as a little outdoor space would have been lovely!
The interior of the home was comfortable and more than big enough. There are some things that need attention. The dishwasher is falling out of the cupboard so using it is difficult at best. The cupboard door is nearly falling off. The kettle leaks. There are no instructions on how to use any of the appliances. The pots and pans are definitely worse for ware and need replacing. There were no wash rags or sponges in which to do the washing up. There is little to no information about things to see and do in Greenwhich or London. Not helpful when you are from out of town.
We did love the area. It was quiet and very close to the shops. Getting into London is a breeze. The train is close though we preferred using the water taxi. The dock for it is just a few steps away. A wonderful way to get into the city!
Overall....this home was disappointing! We will never stay here again nor will we recommend it to any of our friends.

History and Charm

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed here while attending a conference and was delighted with the neighborhood and the history around it... Very easy and fun way to move around London via the ferry which is steps away... Very open, cozy and feeling of comfort overwhelmed me every time I came back.

Just a wonderful stay!

10 of us stayed here for a girls weekend and everyone "WOW"ed when they came in! it is very impressive.

we loved that it was:
1) open plan - kitchen and living area
2) really spacious
3) really high ceilings which made it feel very grand
4) quite quirky
5) easy to get to

it had a big thumbs up from us and it was very reasonably priced,

Great base for visiting London

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here London for London marathon weekend with my family and this property was the ideal base for a group of eight of us. The location was really handy for getting to the marathon start and the DLR is only a 5 minute walk away which connects with the underground lines in central London. There is plenty of space for a large group. There is a lovely pub just around the corner which serves good pub food and is pleasant to sit outside in nice weather. The terrace at the property is large and has sun all day. All in all my family and i had a great stay here and would absolutely use this property again and recommend to others for a stay in London.

Owner's Response: Excellent.. thank you very much Victoria for letting us know. We can't add much to that.. Hope that the London Marathon went well.
We are trying to improve further.. as there is always something we can change for the better.. We try to keep a program of redecoration, renewal and upgrade going along in the back ground when we have empty days..

Un très agréable séjour !

  • 4 out of 5
Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine à Academy Hall et avons apprécié l'espace et la quiétude de l'appartement ainsi que son atmosphère, sa jolie terrasse, et son environnement : Tamise toute proche, métro à deux pas, grands espaces sans voitures, magasins et petit marché à proximité... Nous étions deux familles : 4 adultes et cinq enfants et l'agencement de l'appartement nous a permis de cohabiter sans difficulté. Un petit bémol en ce qui concerne le couchage des enfants qui était un peu sommaire mais cela ne les a pas dérangés. Il n'en serait sans doute pas de même pour des adultes...
En bref, nous avons passé un très bon séjour à Londres. Merci !

Notes:
If you wish to grab a quick snack the town centre has plenty of Cafe's. You can get a really good meal at our local Tai Tap Chinese starting at less than £4 for a Main Course..and it is an immense serving..enough for two, possibly.. Also all major UK banks are in the High St. If you want fruit..the market 3mins walk 6days a week.. is one of the few remaining 'real markets' in London. A sports centre is just along the river 'The Waterfront' but most people find walking around London exercise enough. Entry to the smaller on-site gym can be arranged. We may be able to provide some guidance with regards to visiting London. We can send you Links to Websites that may be of some help..especially with regard to local travel and events. We have some actual experience having given personal guided tours and we speak several languages. French, Spanish, Italian, Russian..and possibly some more. Cars in London.. it can be hard work to drive into the centre of London.. the Congestion Charge..£8
