Reviewed 17 August 2013

We recently stayed at Josephine's B & B in the wonderful location of Chelsea. Josephine has an excellent knowledge of all the bus and tube routes (all within walking distance) to every cultural event and location in London. She provided a healthy continental breakfast (with excellent coffee) each morning and was a very gracious host in all respects.

Josephine provided a wonderful experience for this single traveller. The decor was elegant, spacious and comfortable. Josephine herself was welcoming, with great tips for getting about London and what was available. Travelling alone, it was always nice to share a friendly conversation and the activities of the day over a sustaining breakfast. Location is perfect with a few minutes walk to the Underground, a variety of bus routes and King's Road shops. The area is charming with a variety of eating spots and grocer/ fruiterer also within a few minutes walk.

The B+B is perfetly situated in the Chelsea area, very well connected with public transport, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is what You expect from this kind of accomodations.
Miss Josephine is very kindly and helpful, You can ask Her for directions and places to visit and She's very happy to help You.
I'll return to this B+B in the future........

Lovely room, comfy bed, very convenient location, close to bus and Underground, great breakfast and fantastic value. Highly recommend to anyone but especially great for older single traveller like me. Josephine especially helpful with transport information and directions and could not have done more to make my 8 night stay so enjoyable in her lovely home. Thank you Josephine - hope to come again one day!

Basic B&B with good location to Chelsea and public transport. Easy walking distance to parks etc. Breakfast disappointing for a UK B&B, a choice of 3 cereals, and a slice of toast, what happened to a good old cooked English breakfast? My bed was very uncomfortable and the house in general could do with a good clean.
