Just got back from out third visit to this property, in Muswell Hill (North London). Quality is still high, and the hosts are still as helpful and friendly as ever. We reserved both rooms, meaning we had the property to ourselves. Rooms were comfortable, with flat-screen TVs and a shared bathroom (private to the guests). Wifi was provided by two routers, and was fast and never went down in the week we were there. Breakfast was very generous, with fresh fruit, veggies (tomatoes and cucumbers), breads, yogurt, and a choice of egg dish. As other reviewers have noted, the owners are vegetarians, so no bacon or sausage is served. Within a five-minute walk is the high street, with grocery stores, off-licenses, a wide variety of restaurants, banks, and a friendly pub (O'Neill's) which is housed in what used to be a church. The tube station (Bounds Green) is a five-minute bus ride down the hill, and from there it's a 40-minute tube ride to Knightsbridge (Harrod's), for example. As such, it is worth noting that if you stay here it's probably most practical to plan on being out all day, and coming back in the evening to finish up in Muswell Hill. We like this approach because it gives us a chance to be tourists in central London during the day, and act like residents at the local pubs and restaurants in the evening. John and Norma have a wealth of suggestions for activities, and were happy to arrange transportation to and from Heathrow. It's nice to feel like we're staying with friends when we travel, and we'll certainly be back.
