great location, comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental property is excellent. The location in Islington near the canal was wonderful. It is conveniently near restaurants and shopping. Guests are encouraged to use all the facilities including laundry. The owner was prompt in answering any questions and indeed anticipates most questions in her information. The kitchen is excellent; the bedrooms comfortable. Highly recommended all around.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

This is a fabulous location! Nice to walk along the canal and short walks to tube, restaurants, pubs, bakery, butcher, markets, etc. The property owner was great to work with. Our only complaint was that there was laundry in both the washer and dryer when we arrived and as we had planned on doing laundry there (we were on the road for 2 weeks by that point) it was a bit of a hassle as we didn't know what to do with the wet laundry. The owner was apologetic and said she'd arrange for someone to pick it up.

The property was a great location for us. We enjoyed the garden across the street and the walks on the canal. Easy access to the restaurants and shops in the area.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear you were disturbed during your stay . We advised you prior to your arrival (and offered you the possibility to cancel with a full refund) that our neighbour was undertaking some building work. We also find it strange that you communicated your concerns regarding the level of noise via a public site, and not to us directly, as we would have hoped . We are slightly perplexed that the two comments were from the same person! Herewith is an extract of the personal email you sent to us following your stay. "Dear Diane & Stephen, I would like to extend my gratitude for allowing my family and I stay at your lovely home. We appreciate all the accommodations. Once again thank you for opening your home to us. We had a lovely time. Best regards, Elsa ." We can only apologise again, and hope that the positive attributes of staying in such a central location in London outweighed any disturbance caused by something that was beyond our control.

Lovely property to stay, in a great location in Islington.

  • 5 of 5

Glad we found this great place to stay for our weekend away in London. Bedrooms were all clean and towels provided for our stay. Lovely social spaces in two areas of the House - living room and kitchen/dining room area. Three bedrooms, with a lovely front bedroom over looking the main road. Property owner was very welcoming and kept in contact via email, to answer any questions before and during our stay. I was impressed with the support to advise us on the local area, and information about the property arrived in plenty of time to organise our weekend. The welcoming touches, such as the flowers and bottle of wine was also a nice thought. I would recommend this property for its location in Islington, only a short taxi from Liverpool st station.
