Guestbook comments from the manager

I can't believe that it has been a month since I was in London!

I stayed in the Rosary Gardens flat along with my adult daughter and a family friend who are similar in age (+/-25). We are so happy that we found your company on line and were able to experience living in the South Kensington neighborhood for our stay- as opposed to spending 7 nights in a hotel.

Aside from cost savings (which is considerable!), the experience in our lovely flat was priceless. The flat itself was clean and nicely furnished, and was big enough for us to have comfortable meals, space for rest and downtime. The kitchen itself was small but well stocked and once we figured out how to use the washer/dryer combo everything was perfect.

The master bedroom was really nice- with a great comfortable bed with a down comforter and the windows provided light and a view of the neighborhood behind the building. There is more than enough closet space in the master bedroom to handle quite a few suitcases of clothes etc. The twin beds in the smaller bedroom were also comfortable and warm.

One of best advantages of staying in the property was being in a neighborhood. We had the choice of exploring the local pubs, restaurants, grocery stores, florists, etc. in our neighborhood or just being able to make a great meal in our flat and enjoy a glass of wine. The location was really convenient with the Gloucester Tube Station a few short blocks away and we were able to see quite a few of the "must-see" attractions in London with easy access and always with that great comfortable couch and comfy bed waiting for us at the end of the day.

Everyone we dealt with at London Connexions was great; from Christine helping me with my booking and the change of properties, to Ricardo who was our very pleasant and helpful "greeter" at the property itself, and finally David, our driver, who gave us great tips, gossip and UK news - both on the way to our flat and then back to Heathrow and home to the US.

This was my "dream trip" as I have been an English history fan for years and have wanted to visit not only London but other areas of the UK as well. We really felt like we were able to "live" in London for a week and not just visit. That is what made this experience so priceless.

Really couldn't have asked for a better location. Apartment was perfect for us. Ricardo met us on arrival and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. No complaints whatsoever!

Quiet, convenient, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This flat worked very well for our family of four. The location is great - a residential neighborhood but close to a Waitrose supermarket, various restaurants, and the Gloucester Road Tube stop (which connects with the Piccadilly, Circle and District lines). The outfit that rents the flat is very organized and communicative. We were met at the flat by the property manager, who went over everything before leaving us with the keys. The flat is compact - 2 bedrooms, a living/dining room/tiny kitchen and 1 bathroom - but there was plenty of storage in the bedrooms and the beds were comfortable. It was very clean and there were plenty of towels and helpful amenities. The property manager was very helpful and responsive when I had a few questions, and when I asked about a flyswatter sent two new ones over promptly (they don't seem to use window screens in England). I would stay here again.

Perfect property and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from 4 nights in this lovely flat. It had everything we needed in terms of amenities (thank you especially for the fans in each room), and was clean and bright. The tube is very close by - Gloucester Road about two blocks and South Kensington about 5 blocks. We used the taxi service to get there as we were arriving after an overnight flight and just wanted to go the easy route, but used the tube to get to Heathrow on our return - both are excellent options. You can't beat the overall location - restaurants in Kensington are a block away, but the flat itself is still very quiet and peaceful. Really recommend this property to anyone looking for the perfect spot from which to explore London. We will definitely use it again!

Lovely apartment but "Queen" bed is U.K. Queen, not U.S. Queen size

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was lovely and accomodated our group of 4 women very well. The one disappointemnt was that the description promoted the master bedroom as a Queen bed. This turned out to be what is a Double bed in the U.S., so we felt this was mis-represented on the web site,. Some light bulbs were burnt out, and some very minor issues but nothing serious. All and all it was a great stay, but the bed size was mis-communicated and we were not compensated for this.

Owner's Response: We are in the process of updating our website to more clearly specify that the bed sizes are UK sizes, and do apologize that there was confusion regarding this. Our London staff is always available to take care of any issues requiring attention at the property, or questions regarding your stay.
