If you desire a spacious oasis of calm within ten minutes of Paddington Station boasting excellent amenities, including a well-stocked kitchen and WIFI, then look no further. You may think that all of these excellent ratings are too good to be true, but they are spot-on. This rental is a true gem. We could not have been in better surroundings and will gladly stay here every time we come to London.
Five of the girls in our family, grandmother, 2 daughters, 2 granddaughters spent 8 days in the flat. It was a perfect fit. The flat was just as portrayed on line, immaculately clean and in a perfect location. Fred and Iris were wonderful hosts and provided everything we needed. We would definitely stay there again.
We have stayed at this property multiple times and will continue to come back! The apartment offers all you need for a great base in London--The gracious hosts have literally thought of every detail. The guests in our party ranged from age 7 to 72, and all found it to be a great fit.
My husband, my son & his friend recently spent 2 weeks over Christmas in this fantastic apartment. It was very spacious & comfortable for the 4 of us (including 2 big teenagers) as well as Christmas Day guests. Fred & Iris have so many extras for guests that made our stay even better. They had erected & decorated a gorgeous Christmas tree as well as putting tasteful Christmas decorations around the apartment. Iris had even supplied special Christmas tableware! We had everything to make our Christmas Day perfect & all necessary kitchen equipment to cook our Turkey etc. The apartment is located in a very convenient area. Fred met us at Paddington station & showed us all the local features. The apartment was very clean, we had a cup of coffee waiting for us after a long plane ride, everything such as TVs worked perfectly- excellent stay in
London! We will definitely return. Fantastic!
It was lovely to stay at Fred and Iris's flat. The 3 bedrooms worked out perfect for my husband and I, and 2 of our adult children. The flat was very spacious and laid out wonderfully. With the bedrooms in back by the garden it was quite peaceful at night. I went out to the garden at least one a day, just to enjoy.
The flat is fully supplied with toiletries and paper goods. So nice.
Fred met us at the train station and walked us to the flat with a tour of the immediate area.
As has been written before, the steps are somewhat steep down to the flat but Fred has it covered and easily maneuvers your suitcases down, and back up when it is time to leave.
With Oyster cards in hand and transportation at your door steps it is a breeze to move about London.
Thank you Fred and Iris. It was a pleasure to stay at your flat.
We stayed at this apartment for the second time recently. It served as the perfect base for us fir 10 day stay in London - spacious, immaculately clean, stylish, and in a fantastic position. Situated between Paddington station and hyde park, it was hard to beat. Highly recommend this gorgeous apartment.
We stayed in this apartment for six nights and could not have been happier with the accommodations. Fred and Iris went out of their way when we arrived to get us settled - Fred met us at the train station, gave us helpful tips on restaurants, supermarket, etc, on the short walk back to the place. When we got to the apartment both Fred and Iris gave us a ton of information about London and the neighborhood, and left a large map and several travel books.
The apartment itself was fantastic - we had lots of space for us and our four teenage children, the kitchen was well equipped, we didn't end up using it much but having the little patio outside was a nice bonus, the wifi worked great. The apartment was very clean, and well-equipped for our stay, the owners really thought of everything. The only thing potential renters should be aware of is the steps to get down to the apartment, this would definitely not be ok for anyone with mobility issues.
The location of the apartment was also great, it was very close to Paddington station and several bus stops. We could walk to Kensington Park in about 10 minutes. There was a good variety of restaurants and a large supermarket within a few minutes walking distance. The neighborhood was quiet at night, everything was extremely comfortable.
For our family traveling with teenagers, being able to go back in the evenings to a place that felt like home instead of a hotel made the trip so much more enjoyable. Everyone had a bit of space, and we were able to stock up on snacks and stay in at night to cook dinner if we chose. Thanks to Fred and Iris for sharing your place with us!
