“The perfect "GEM"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

It was my first trip to London and i was unsure what to expect. We booked based on trip advisor reviews and honestly everything that is written is true!

69 The grove was an absolute GEM!!!!!

From the minute the taxi dropped us off we were welcomed into a warm doting household!
The position was perfect, the room cosy and spotlessly clean - with attention to detail down to the hand cream in the bathroom and heated towel racks!

Breakfast was a "family" affair with a wonderful ambience and a variety to suit all pallets.

Thank you so much for the warm, friendly and professional way in which you welcomed us into your home.
Hope to come back at some stage and will definitely come to stay.

Room Tip: If you have heavy luggage as i did - a ground floor room is ideal (no elevator) I am sure that when...

A fabulous place to call 'home' during our brief stay in London. The 'boys' are kind, generous and welcoming, and very deserved of all the wonderful Trip Advisor reviews that convinced us that this was THE place to stay.
The B&B has a great vibe, is safe, comfortable and brilliantly located for forays into the madness of the city.
Breakfasts were homely, satisfying and served in a family like atmosphere, and in fact the feel that exudes from the guests is one of smug (in a nice way) happiness to have found their way to this lovely little family in Vauxhall.

Home away from home. Spotlessly clean rooms beautifully decorated and fresh flowers to welcome us. Kanley was the host with the most. We loved staying here, excellent location, excellent breakfast and bonus to have guest kitchen and washing machine if required. Would definately recommend to others and would stay here again.

My impression of 69TheGrove is like staying with a friend you haven't seen for a long while. Great hospitality, great food, great company. Kanley greeted us with a warm welcome on arrival. His hospitality and made us feel right at home. This B&B is pretty much exactly what you should be looking for in a London B&B. Close to the Tube - 5 minute walk, close to the tourist attractions -within walking distance.

Cozy, small room - but it's London. The key to this one is super clean, very comfortable, and well decorated.
Yummy breakfast - from a traditional full English to some cereal, or whatever you are in the mood for, they can and will cook it up for you.
Friendliness - As I said, we felt like we were staying with a family member or friends.

Overall, I really have nothing to complain about and everything to praise. Kanley and David run a very professional, classy and friendly B&B, and you would do yourself a favor by staying there.

This is our first time in London and first stay in this B&B. No doubt, we had a great stay. We stayed here for 3nights. It is very close to Vauxhall tube. It's just a 5mins walk. Location is just the best for the first timer in London. Comfortable bed, clean room, free wifi, and fresh flowers. Highly recommend.
We have a feeling of home while our 3nights stay in this B&B. We missed Kanley's breakfast. Sumptous English breakfast was provided by Kanley every morning !! If you have any question or query, Kanley and the staff will not hesitate to give you the best info anytime.
Great homey stay. We really enjoyed our stay at here. We will be back to this B&B again for the next time. Nothing beat this awesome place and the great price in London.
Thanks Kanley, David and Staffs

We stayed 4 nights at the 69 The Grove B&B and enjoyed it a lot! Our room was clean, newly furnished and quiet - not usual for London. The breakfast with a freshly made omelet (or full English breakfast), fruit salad, lots of jam & marmalade, cereals and toast was always excellent. The service was friendly and quick - Kanley, one of the owners, made sure that everyone felt happy and welcome. The breakfast as well as WIFI was included in the price. The B&B is very central - the closest tube station is Vauxhall, the Victoria line brings you in the middle of town within a few minutes (and directly to the train station Kings Cross). We can only recommend to stay at 69 The Grove! If we should plan another trip to London we will definitely stay here again.

This is my second stay in this B&B and had a great time here. Kanley, David & staff were really kind hosts, and everything in the house was perfect for me. Comfortable bed, nice room, lovely flowers in my room and delicious English breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay at this accommodation. I would like to stay here again! Thank you so much:)

Room Tip: room no 3 is amazing:-)
