Overview

About the property

Amazing central location in charming cobbled street with great transport link

It’s hard to believe that this sleek, cosmopolitan residence was once a coach house. Today, instead of horses, this beautiful property is home to some of London’s most discerning visitors. It has been tastefully designed and finished to the highest quality, with everything you need for an unforgettable break.

Located in a traditional mews just around the corner from Russell Square tube, The Old Coach House offers a peaceful retreat from the buzz of the city. Bloomsbury is a friendly neighbourhood with green spaces, unusual independent shops, buzzing cafes and excellent restaurants offering food from all over the world. Yet a short walk or tube journey will take you to St. Pancras and King’s Cross stations, the British Museum, Covent Garden and to London’s West End, famous for its world class theatre. Nearby Coram’s fields will make you smile – it’s a park to which adults are only allowed if accompanied by children!

The property has three bedrooms, the largest one with a super-king size bed (or two twin beds if you prefer), a double room and a further bedroom with twin beds. A family bathroom serves the bedrooms upstairs and there is an additional wet room on the ground floor. The spacious reception room has original stable doors to the front, with sliding floor to ceiling windows within - push these wide open and you can ‘bring the outside indoors’! A fully-equipped bespoke kitchen, fitted with Siemens appliances, wine cellar and Joseph & Joseph utensils, has a small breakfast counter and offers open plan dining.

We go to extreme lengths to give you the best possible night’s sleep. We are talking about the ultimate level of comfort – bespoke, hand-made in the UK beds and mattresses, made specifically for Merino Hospitality in partnership with the official bed makers for the Rolls-Royce Enthusiast Club, EPOC. Ours are layered with over 12 inches of Merino wool, white cotton felt, cambric, silk and individually pocketed springs to make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud.

You may need to work whilst staying with us, in which case we hope the HDMI connectivity and reliable Wi-Fi will be useful. Then relax and unwind in front of your Sony BRAVIA 55″ Full HD Smart LED TV with Netflix and a SONOS audio system. We hope you will find the spacious and light-filled interior of The Old Coach House, which has solar-powered underfloor heating throughout, a restful place to unwind.

Other facilities include LED lighting and solar heating system with underfloor heating throughout, whilst skylights and floor to ceiling sliding windows flood the house with natural light. You will also find a washer/dryer (detergent and softener provided), a large dishwasher (tablets included), iron with board and hair dryers in every bedroom, as well as luxury amenities by Aromatherapy Associates and Pecksniff’s, soft towels and top quality bed linen. Fresh fruits, flowers and a small selection of groceries will be waiting for you on arrival (including a bottle of wine, juice, milk, eggs, bread, butter, crisps, chocolates, biscuits and sweets). Cooking spices, salt, pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sugar, tea and coffee are all supplied free of charge, as are cleaning materials for your daily needs. Additional housekeeping is also available on request for a small surcharge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In December, my wife and I stayed in London for a weekend after visiting our son, who is studying in Winchester. Based on our friend’s recommendation, we chose the Colonnade apartment in Bloomsbury area. Caio, the hotel proprietor of Merino Hospitality, met us at the apartment and explained everything carefully, including the facilities, location and other transport details.



The interior of the apartment is very tidy and neat. We just felt like home and the standard of it is excellent. The apartment is in Zone 1 and it is within two minutes’ walk from/to Russell Sq. underground station. It is only 15 minutes away from the London shopping and famous theatre district. The apartment is clearly in the luxury class of its own and comparable (even exceed) to any five-star hotel in Central London.



We have no hesitation to recommend this apartment to our friends and relatives in both Hong Kong and China.

Wonderful apartment in central London

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 children stayed here in July and had a wonderful time. We were met by the property managers as soon as we arrived and they showed us around the home and even left a basket of snacks, wine, milk, and eggs. The apartment is centrally located in London right behind the Russell Square tube stop making it easy to get just about anywhere in the city. The house is located in what appears to be an old horse stable that has been converted into apartments and offices down a tiny, but very quiet street.

The apartment was beautifully decorated and the beds were the most comfortable we stayed in on our trip. I've stayed in hotels in London on past trips without the kids and I have to say that this was far nicer and much bigger for roughly the same cost as a hotel.

The only thing I didn't like about this property is that there is no view and you have to open the outside doors to the street in order to see anything from the living room. However the neighborhood was very quiet and felt safe so this wasn't big deal for a 6 day stay. Overall, I'd highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to London as a family.

Fabulous property and location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we called on the day of arrival to arrange access, we knew we were on a winner. We were met at the property by Victoria who was delightful. We were pleasantly surprised to find a fresh bowl of fruit on the table, eggs and milk and juice in the fridge and a welcome pack of bread and snacks as well. Victoria then took the time to show us every feature of the property including how to work appliances, blinds, etc.

Being directly behind Russell Square tube station was brilliant, just a 2 minute walk away. It was also only a 20 minute walk to Oxford Street and all it had to offer. For a property in the heart of one of the world's biggest cities, it was amazingly quiet and peaceful.

We loved our stay at this property and would recommend it highly to a family or even a couple looking for a fresh, clean and pleasant environment. It was so comfortable we instantly felt at home. Great job guys.

Beautiful house in an incredible location.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 (3 small boys) staying at this beautiful property. After being stuck in a 2 hour custom's line, we arrived at the house at 1am. We were warmly greeted and (as requested) given chocolate milk for our kids (their nightly bed routine). Thank you for that! The house is modern, clean and beautiful. Absolutely recommend!

Excellent place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean,spacious, quiet, well-appointed, and convenient to all our activities. Our party of five had ample private space, but were able to enjoy meals and socializing easily. We had only one problem with a broken bedroom door handle, but no serious issues. We absolutely would stay here again on our next trip to London.

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 traveled during the New Year holiday and this flat was perfect. The flat is modern, clean, spacious and provides almost anything a guest could need. Upon our arrival, the property owner/manager provided a delightful basket of goodies including milk, eggs, fruit, crackers, cookies and a bottle of wine. The kitchen was large and included a washer/dryer for small loads, a wine fridge, dishwasher and plates/cutlery that were enough for our family. A large grocery store (Waitrose), other shops, restaurants and fitness center (Nuffield) were located only a few minutes walking distance from the flat. The Russell Square tube was just around the corner which made it very easy to travel to all the quintessential sights in London.

Bath and bed linens are very high quality--equivalent to a 4-star hotel and many bathroom amenities are provided (more than you will find in many hotels) Beds are extremely comfortable.

The flat advertises two bathrooms but the first floor bathroom includes a showerhead in the ceiling with no door. It is functional but the bathroom can get a little wet.

The property owner/manager was very helpful and responsive and clearly takes pride in this property.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Coach House and will definitely return if we visit London in the future.

Located in a traditional mews just around the corner from Russell Square tube, the house offers a peaceful retreat from the buzz of the city.

Bloomsbury is a friendly neighbourhood with green spaces, unusual independent shops, buzzing cafes and excellent restaurants offering food from all over the world. Yet a short walk or tube journey will take you to St. Pancras / King’s Cross, Euston and Waterloo train stations, the British Museum, Covent Garden, Soho, Chinatown, Oxford Street, London’s West End, famous for its world class theatre, The City, St Paul's Cathedral, Regent Street, Bond Street and much more. Nearby Coram’s fields will make you smile – it’s the last park of its kind to which adults are only allowed if accompanied by children!

Bloomsbury is the literary heart of London and often referred to as Midtown due to its superb central location and ease of access to all corners of London.

Lambs Conduit Street - hidden away in the back streets between Holborn and Bloomsbury, you won’t find it on any tourist map or city guide but those who are in the know or happen to stumble across the street instantly fall in love with its unique charm. It’s a street that feels different, it’s as if you aren’t in central London, with a cosmopolitan mix of Cafe’s, Restaurants, Boutiques and Galleries and it’s great for shopping and relaxing but yet a very residential area with hundreds of apartments in the surrounding streets, as well as a vast amount of council homes. This is what makes Lambs Conduit Street so special and so unique, it still has that community spirit that has sadly been etched away from so many old neighbourhoods in Central London. Nothing beats an afternoon lunch sitting out on the street with the sun on your back, in absolute peace and quiet – yet only 5 minutes’ walk from Holborn tube station? – That’s quite surreal.
