Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We (family with kids aged 5 and 7) just atayed for 3 nights in this perfect apartment. It was very comfortable and fully equipped and located perfectly (very near a Circle Line underground station, near a Central Line Station and buses). The kids loved the leisure options after a day full of sight seeing.

The owner Sue send very useful information about the apartment, the neighbourhood (supermarkets, restaurants) and transport to us on our first enquiry. She responded quickly to questions and welcomed us on our day of arrival to hand over the keys. She was very kind and helpful.

We can certainly recommend this apartment!

beautiful stay at herbal hill

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at herbal hill apartments for our last 5 days of a 3 weeks trip to the uk. as soon as we walked in we wished we could have rented this place for a whole day! It was beautiful, perfect for a family of 4, in a fantastic neighborhood, and the owner and the person responsible for cleaning and caretaking were so easy to remain in contact with and very communicative. If we return to London, we will stay in this place again but absolutely sure.

Appartamento favoloso in zona centrale di Londra

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati accolti da una gentile signora che ci ha illustrato il meraviglioso appartamento ben curato e fornito di tutti i confort; al nostro arrivo vi era persino il latte, acqua e vino bianco in frigo.-

L'appartamento si trova a 5 minuti a piedi da fermata della Tube e treno dove si può comodamente prendere un treno che in un ora ti porta all'aeroporto .-

Consigliato assolutamente.+++++

Almost Home

  • 4 of 5

This was not our first choice as it was essentially more than we had budgeted. But we ended up here anyway and are, for the most part, pleased. David & Sue were quite responsive and always willing to assist us with our plans. We do wish the final payment could have arrived before we left our home rather than on the road- I don’t trust other computers, only my own. The flat is extremely convenient and easily accessible by public transport or taxi. The building’s amenities were lovely, but we never got to try any of them- after all it IS London! The flat was as the pictures show. I was worried about the kitchen from those photos (new one- ones- added since!), but it turned out to be quite decent.

We had three problems, however. First, the balcony window that you see opens to a MAJOR road. And Clerkenwell Rd. has a 24-hour bus. Besides, when you do open the window, you literally look at passengers on the top deck of the bus which is a bit disconcerting for both parties. So the serious bus noise issue has to be taken into consideration. Second, there was a “heat wave” when we were there. It wasn’t the heat that bothered us, it was the lack of circulation. The ceiling fan is great for the living room, where one person slept on the sofa- the convertible chair wasn’t for us. But it doesn’t reach into the other section of the open floor plan. We can handle heat (and 28 is not hot to us), but we cannot handle still air. We asked for a fan, but it was rejected. We had a friend in London who loaned us one. Sleeping in that mezzanine (only recommended for the under 30s- we’re not and it was quite rough) was almost unbearable with no circulation. The person who slept under the mezzanine also complained about the lack of circulation. Third, the building's management had a problem with trash collection. We took the trash to the disposal area as asked, but it was so full we could barely open the door. If we had the money, we would stay there again IF there were a fan for circulation. (They do provide a heater for the cold.)

The owners were not any problem and everything went smoothly. Their housekeeper (Tracey- xx) was sweet and adorable and a most valuable source of information on all things London. (Note= Farringdon tube stop has a lift- this was a boon for us and needs to be a consideration for those who need this accessibility.)

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time despite the heat. If you remember, Tracey did bring round a fan.

Really good choice

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprised at the lovely apartment with great facilities , would highly recommend to families with 2 kids or business travellers. There are shops very near by to purchase food and drinks and Farrington Station is a 3 minute walk from the apartment. I would happily stay again next time I'm in London.

Thanks to Tracy the housekeeper lovely lady with helpful advice.

Sistemazione eccellente

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato in questo delizioso appartamento per 4 notti dal 19 al 22 dicembre. Abbiamo viaggiato su Gatwick e il treno express arriva direttamente alla stazione di Farringdon, la casa è ad un centinaio di metri.

Siamo stati accolti dalla si.ra Tracy molto cortese e gentile. L'appartamento era perfettamente in ordine e pulito con ogni comfort è anche graziosamente addobbato per il Natale!

La sistemazione é molto confortevole, comoda anche troppo calda e molto molto silenziosa nonostante sia prospiciente la strada. La comodità della metropolitana e delle fermate degli autobus ne fanno un luogo privilegiato per i turisti.

Dopo ogni giornata abbiamo potuto rilassarci nella grande piscina condominiale comoda calda e rilassante.

Ringrazio i sigg. McDougall per questa vacanza veramente memorabile.
