The Plum Guide?

I'm planning a special weekend in Central London with my family and I've found a few places through a company called the Plum Guide. Has anyone used them? Is it just like a luxury Airbnb? Any feedback? Thanks

I like the look of the Bloomsbury mews one. Someone asked about this company the other day, so I checked them out. They look as though they are a kind of curated Airbnb for London.

I've not stayed with them but they're legit - here's an article I shared on the previous post: standard.co.uk/business/entrepreneurs-the-ho…

Hope that's helpful!

Super helpful and super happy in the space of two reviews. And the second from a first-time poster.

Super super, I suppose.

Despite the hyperbole and repeated claims of attention to detail, the sloppy use of English eg "Indulging into the welcome hamper" and "wonder (sic) the streets" doesn't fill me with confidence.

Zippy, I suspect it's aimed at a market that doesn't include us! A super market perhaps?

Wow. How fortuitous for a couple of first time posters to find this thread and eulogise.

Whiffier than a troll's undercrackers.

This is not the only Plum Guide thread there has been.

But it is a new-ish and relatively untested "outfit".

This is the second thread that I can recall,

My post on that thread was removed for reminding folks that "Plums" have slang meaning in the UK

ie that of mens "crown jewels"....

Even though "a plum job" can mean a good job!

Not sure this site is as secure as the crown jewels.....

Must have been a slow day / week at Plum Guide Towers.

'They look as though they are a kind of curated Airbnb for London.' More a curate's egg I'd say.
