“A little gemstone close to London Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

My wife and I booked a room for 2 and we were delighted from start to finish. A very warm welcome by the lady of the house and we were taken to our room through the garden area (with outdoor smoking facilities) . The room was small but it was immaculate all you needed was there, nothing was overlooked. Breakfast was perfection, very friendly staff. We only stayed for one day we asked if we could park there for the next day and for an extra £.7.- we were permitted to park there the whole second day ( now that's a bargain in London).

Who needs big West end Hotels, Anchor House Hotel is all you need!

Room Tip: Just let the lady of the house guide you, tell her what you want and you will not be disappointed.

This guesthouse have newly renovated rooms with safe and possibility of making tea and coffee. Breakfast is nice for English guest house. Close to underground zone 3. I will for sure stay here when I go back to London. Nice beds and fresh air inside rooms, nice bathroom with comfortable shower.

I have stayed in several hotels in Golders Green, and Anchor House is the best one. The visit starts with free off-street parking and a friendly receptionist, and continues with a room equipped with a powerful shower and finishes with a freshly-prepared continental breakfast in the morning.

I often need to be in GG and I next time I will stay here again...

On arrival it looked pleasant enough. A small well kept reception area. The lady at the desk welcomed us and although our room was not ready we were shown where we would be staying and were directed through the kitchen down some external steps across a patio with some seating and pointed in the direction of a shed with a wooden painted peeling door with a padlock. I thought surely not !! It was attached to other out buildings with laundry equipment in them. We went off to meet our daughter but was given a key to let ourselves in to the main door that night The place was deserted that night we couldn't find our bags that were promised to be placed in our " room". My husband found them in the kitchen area. And indeed we let ourselves into the outdoor bedroom and discovered a bedroom area behind the shed door if was reasonably clean although pillowcases were of different colours one brown two white and a small shower room with a tap on the sink that came off in your hand when used the side window looked out onto a concrete wall inches away from the glass and I felt that if a fire broke out we would have no chance of escape. The breakfast was good but were we're served in the kitchen where one of the male staff had an awful cold sniffing and blowing his nose and not washing his hands after which I found very off putting We have stayed in dozens of hotels around the world and in this country and I have never had such an odd unsettling experience as this. I asked the other guests what their rooms were like inside the b&b and they were happy but they were bemused that we were placed in a garden shed that from the outside viewing no one would know was there. £96 !!!!!! Do not accept their " garden room"" when offered

My wife was born in West Heath Drive and for a birthday present, she asked if we could stay near there so she could visit her old haunts and go through her memories of times past (over 50 years ago).
The hotel is clean, reasonably priced and although room No2 is small, it sleeps 3 and has everything you could want, including and iron and ironing board! It is however a little noisy but not overly so.
Location for us was great as there is a lot to do in and around the area. The restaurants are a different matter altogether as Anchor House only provide breakfast - and very good too!
I have posted a detailed criticism of one restaurant which offered 25% discount for cash. Do not believe that offer. The food was good, the waitress excellent, the manager a fool. Beware.
We will be going back and taking my grandson as the hotel staff were most accommodating when I had to change my dates unexpectedly due to client commitments. The parking saved me at least £7 per day alone.
Highly recommended.

A warm welcome by the matriarch was somewhat let down by her less hospitable son who served us breakfast the next day.
As many others have said, the rooms are small, we stayed in the garden room. But this is to be expected in London and the room had everything it needed and more, coffee making facilities, ironing board, fridge which you don't always find in hotels anymore.
What let the place down according to us was the breakfast. We arrived at 9:15 but the scrambled eggs were stone cold. Upon asking if there were any more eggs coming, (my partner finished the last of the cold lot) the staff said no. We had to press to get one of them to throw a couple of eggs in a pan. The coffee was horrible, too diluted and also cold. All and all OK place to stay for venturing into London but I am sure there will be better places for the money (£90). Unfortunately we had no choice because of everything booked up during the Champions League final

Room Tip: Garden room is nice and secluded, but the aircon is noisy!
