I stayed here for 2 nights whilst in London for work and it was such a pleasure to be in a friendly, home-from-home style B&B instead of a bland, corporate hotel. Alison is a friendly and welcoming host and her home is comfortable and characterful. My room had all I needed (no TV if that's important to you) and the bed was wonderfully comfortable, and breakfast down in the kitchen was delicious and offered at a time to suit my schedule. Alison pointed me in the direction of a really nice local pub, just at the end of the road, where I ate both evenings I was there and the food was delicious and I felt totally comfortable as a woman alone. The location was great for me as I need to be in Kennington, but buses pass by the end of the road to take you over Waterloo Bridge and into central London if that's where you need to be. Alison is a charming and interesting woman and I thoroughly recommend her B&B - I hope to return when work takes me back down to Kennington.
