On a three day trip to the capital, the SO and I referred to Alistair Sawday's inestimable guide book and chose this B&B for our two nights. We called from the train to ask if we could call in at 0930 and drop our bags. Not a problem. After a long day in a very wet London we arrived back cold and damp to a cosy warm room with a huge wood-floored bathroom. Big fluffy towels and a lovely warm shower later we were ready to venture out on to the town for supper. Hilary's two dachshunds are delightful and kept us entertained. Breakfast was perfect scrambled eggs and toast etc just the job before a trip down Portobello Road. It's a lovely home and Hilary and Maryo charming and caring hosts.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pretty 1840s terraced townhouse in the heart of Hillgate Village, a quiet enclave only three minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Notting Hill Gate and the tube, with Central, Circle and District lines, and many bus routes. Chic and bohemian Notting Hill and Portobello Road are to the north and sophisticated Kensington to the south. In the house paintings abound everywhere, many by one of the owners who is an artist. There are two bedrooms, one cream and white having splashes of colour from Indian hangings, with queen size bed and spacious en-suite bathroom with claw foot bath and separate walk in shower: the other bright and vibrant from many textiles in shades of red, with super king size bed and sharing a large bathroom with the owners. Dutch or continental breakfast is served in the dining room which opens onto a small but lush and private courtyard garden. A jewel in the middle of London. ... more less
