“Good Location for Public Transportation”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We enjoyed our stay and would return. The home owner and housekeeper were really nice accommodating people. My only problem was the bathroom was located down the hall from the bedrooms on the first floor. It was a hassle to get up in middle of the night and go down stairs to restroom...however, we managed. The rooms were clean and cozy. My room was facing the street in the front of the home, so we could hear noises from outside. The noise level was never a distraction from sleeping. You could also hear when anyone entered the home.

The house is perfectly located near the underground and bus stops, so getting around was never a problem. The breakfast consisted of pastries, fruit, cereal, yogurt, and juices. I think there was ham as well, but no eggs. I had no problem with the internet services at all. My bed wasn't the most comfortable, but one can manage. Overall, my stay was pleasant and I would recommend.

Room Tip: You may want to try the ensuite rooms.

Lovely historic building, interesting location, nice breakfast, relaxed and informal atmosphere and very friendly owner. Faultless B&B.
If you like a room with a view, try the top floor with a wonderful balcony.
Boris bikes are right outside too.

We stayed here this weekend for a family birthday and it was brilliant. The B&B was easy to find, literally on the doorstep of Kennington tube station. The house was beautifully decorated and very clean. We had two ground floor rooms which again were very well presented and spacious. Sian and her family were very welcoming and friendly and she contacted me by e-mail before we went and was very helpful. I had a couple of small requests as I have a poorly daughter and Sian fulfilled them all. She even had our rooms ready by 10.30am when we booked for a 2pm arrival. The buffet breakfast was lovely - lots of choice and all very fresh and tasty. When it is time to check out they are happy for you to leave your bags and collect them later. Great customer service!! Would definitely use this B&B again.

We stayed in this very clean and beautiful B & B for the new year celebrations recently for 3 nights. We had the top floor suite which was absolutely spotless and very private. This was our first time in London and found this to be a fantastic location very close to the tube station and within easy access to all attractions. On arrival Sian made us feel very welcome indeed and is a very lovely lady. The housekeeper is also very friendly and welcoming and made us feel very much at home. Breakfast is fabulous with so much choice. I cannot recommend this lovely B&B enough and we will be definitely visiting again in the summer. All in all Kennington B&B is an excellent place to stay if you are visiting London. Thank you so much for a lovely stay Sian.

Room Tip: Top floor family suite has excellent views of London.

I stayed in this fab little B&B on a birthday weekend trip to the capital. It was excellent. Sian,the hostess, was there to let us in on arrival, despite confusing instructions on my part! She was also very personable and took the time to chat to us about our sightseeing plans over breakfast. The bedroom itself was a twin (as I had requested), furnished to a very high standard and very clean. The only slight issue was that our 'ensuite' was detached from the room, so you had go down a small flight of stairs to get to it, but it did have a lock on the door, so that only we could use it, and there were also robes supplied so that we could protect our modesty as we went up and down the stairs! Whilst there was not a full English breakfast on offer, I was not disappointed at all (as I thought I might be), as there was a fabulous array of cereals, fruits, pastries, toast, pancakes and waffles on offer, which you could also toast/heat up in the microwave as you wished. It was all delicious and a great start to a couple of very long sightseeing days! The best thing about the B&B is its location. It is literally 50m or so from Kennington tube station, so it's really easy to access all of London from there. All in all it was great value for money (£120 a night, very reasonable for London) and a fab find! Will definitely use them again if needed.

We (parents + two kids) stayed at Kennington B&B during a May-visit from Brussels last year, but never got around to writing a review...here it is, simply one word: excellent. Value for money, great taste, laid-back atmosphere, wonderful hosts. Will be back.

We spent a week at Kennington B&B and enjoyed it thoroughly; great location (300 feet from a Tube stop, which puts you within minutes of anywhere in London) and comfortable rooms with great beds and bedding. The breakfast each morning was terrific (cheese, meat, juice, coffee, breads, etc), and owner Sian provided great advice on local attractions and helped make reservations for us over the Christmas holidays. By the end of a week, she seemed a family friend. The only "complaint" (ha ha) is that about 4 am each morning, the automatic bread machine in the kitchen started baking fresh bread, so I was forced awake by the smell of freshly baked bread and coffee; how do you spell the word "vacation"? We will be back.
