My mother and I recently stayed for a week at 69 the Grove..a lovely B&B. Though we had a bit of miscommunication about the number of beds needed, Kanley quickly remedied the situation by adding another bed to our room. It was a bit cramped for us but clean and comfortable. They cleaned our room every day and gave us plenty of fresh towels.
We were made to feel very welcome by Kanely and David...they are two hardworking, kindhearted and helpful hosts.
The generous traditional English breakfast each morning was more than we'd expected and kept our bellies full all the way through dinner. One day they decided to do fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal to give us something different. It was fabulous. And we even got digestives to help keep us healthy. We came to enjoy our morning conversations with the other folks in the house who were all friendly and courteous as well.
David even helped us to find a wonderful local dining option and directed us to a place we were able to purchase a phone card to call our family in the U.S. Kanely's gardening was lovely...wait til you see all the flowers and even fresh cut flowers in every room.
Great location...just steps from the Tube and Rail and a short walk to cross the Thames. If you go during Wimbledon which we did, you'll find it very easy to get a short train ride there or to take the tube.
A pretty nice neighborhood...but just as in any urban area...be cautious at night. We came in late several nights and felt quite safe walking from the tube to the B&B.
For such a new entry into the world of hosting a B&B...Kanley and David are doing great. Keep up the good work guys!
