Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived Eurostar after our trip of Paris and found this lovely apartment a wonderful choice even the tea and biscuits was a site for tired eyes, many many sites right on our doorstep was amazing. With this in mind we were able to very easily and safely walk most places and the underground station is also next door to the apartment for further afield. We felt like neighbours to the queen and the prime minister.

Our stay exceeded our high expectations. We will return and will recommend the apt to our friends

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at an apt in Europe and we were a bit nervous about doing so. However everything went smoothly. The apartment was very nice and the location was superb. The staff was helpful and responsive to our every need. We could not have asked for a better experience and hopefully will return again to stay at this apt in the near future. The apartment was convenient to everything a tourist could need or ask for; tube, bus lines, wide variety of eating choices all within easy walking. Plus have St James so close for a morning stroll could not be beat. Loved our stay!

Found a bit of peace in central London

  • 4 of 5

Marc's communication was thorough, easing our check-in and stay. The flat was spotless and large enough for my family of four.

Located on a side road, it was a quiet stay for central London (seemed busiest during business hours). Enjoyed the early morning walks in and around St. James Park, just a block or so from the flat.

4 nights in Aug 2017

  • 4 of 5

Would agree with all previous reviews about the location. Really excellent, as you can walk to a lot of places and the Tube right beside it.

Accomodation was totally adequate and was clean and well presented. I found Marc to be very helpful and very accomodating in a couple of requests we had, so would definitely stay here again.

The only negative item I would have is that there is no double glazing and the noise from the street with early delivery traffic etc can be clearly heard but then again I am from the quiet countryside, so may not be an issue for city folks

Owner's Response: Vincent, thank you for taking time to comment on your stay at my apartment in Westminster and am pleased to hear you enjoyed the time spent. You make reference to noise from deliveries and feel it only appropriate that I clarify your comment. Your short stay coincided with an annual festival of cycling ("Ride London") with more than 100,000 cyclists over 3 days. The start/end of each race and therefore the hospitality tents and TV crews are found set up on The Mall / St James's Park both moments from the apartment. With so much activity taking place during the 3 days coupled with a heavy Police presence for security and overseeing many road closures from early morning till late night this may be the noise you heard. It is worth noting that the apartment is in a zone that forbids deliveries being made outside normal working hours and never weekends (unless special dispensation is obtained). If prospective guests would like clarification please do not hesitate to contact me. Marc

Fantastic location!

Perfect spot to see many of the popular sites in London. Exceptionally clean as well. Marc was quick to respond to any questions and provided us with loads of information about the area and getting around London. Definitely would recommend!

Fabulous Family Stay in London

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great for our family of five. It is a great location, around the corner from Buckingham Palace. There is a pub and small grocery store outside the apartment. Very convenient to walk to sites or hop on the tube to further away attractions. We really enjoyed out time staying here.
