“Stylish, freshly ironed sheets, quiet”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Another great 7 day visit in London mostly due to the accommodations at Barclay House. I like the care that goes into making sure I will have a good stay each and every time I come. High-end sheets and towels, comfortable beds, beautiful German bathrooms, constant great restaurant recommendations, full bars on wifi, close to the Tube and market, a cobbler at the end of the street to shine shoes, great seamstress to drop my clothes with. Can't ask for anything better. Barclay House is hard to beat. This picky Californian has found her home away from home.

A guest who packs key wardrobe items to be altered by the amazing 'Dorothy' around the corner (Fulham's 'Chanel' incarnated) is our kind of elegant bargain hunter! Needless to say we enjoy hosting this no-glass-ceiling executive when she touches down in London via Beijing, LA or New York. Always a pleasure. I am looking forward to joining her on her next London Saturday-morning charity shop bargain hunt, ending at Dorothy, of course, for a transforming fitting session of all the vintage designer bargains!

This is a cozy, modern and exceptionally clean B & B. The bedroom is very comfortable and has everything that is required when on holiday. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. Barclay House is centrally located and is very close to public transport. A great stay!

Our housekeeper was 'in charge' during your stay and we are glad for your confirmation that all was well. So kind of you to point out the super-mini guest kitchen area that we designed exactly for guests like you. Anyone who needs ice; for end of day cocktails-- just ask and we'll serve it up in FourSeasons Hotel mini ice buckets with accompanying ice cube tongs, along with fresh, unwaxed lemons and limes. The Brits conquered the world with a proper Gin and Tonic remedy, so called.

This is a very cozy, modern and clean BB. The location is wonderful and Charllote is very friendly. The little kitchen has everything we need to feel at home. When we come back to London, we plan stay at Barclay House again!

Enthusiastic guests who brought us chocolate from their home country. Many thanks. One thing we learned for the future: if you plan to hire (rent) a car at the end of your time in London to tour around England and you want to use your own personal device or your own SATnav/Garmin/TomTom from your home country, be sure to try to download the UK maps at home, before you come to London. No matter what we tried here in situ, the maps would not download onto these guests' Garmin, even using my MAC, a cable etc. So sorry for these guests who then had to rent a device from the car hire company. In any case, we hope your journey was a big success and that you never became lost!

I return to Barclay House every year and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. It's central location is very convenient and being so close to public transport is wonderful. Every i dotted and every t crossed - from the moment of arrival anything you need has been anticipated and is provided for with stylish elegance. Thank you!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have access to excellent tea and coffee facilities.

I stayed at the Barclay House London B&B for the final leg of my European adventure. Having never been to London I wanted somewhere safe and central with a little added luxury. I was so impressed and so overwhelmed with the service. Charlotte gave me explicit and faultless directions, which I was so grateful for having never been to London. I would recommend this B&B to anyone. The tube is a two minute walk and is within two zones from centre. The room was very modern, the bathroom immaculate and breakfast was delicious. Five Stars !!!
