“excellent flat for short break”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Fernando met us at the flat as arranged, he gave us a guide on how to use the white goods in the flat, he was also very informative about the area and getting around.
The flat was adequate for our needs during our short breaks.
The bed was a good size and very comfortable.

“An excellent stay at BoroughBase!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I was thoroughly pleased with my stay at BoroughBase. The apartment is an easy 10 minute walk from the tube station and just around the corner from a nice grocery. We had booked tickets to the Globe Theatre which was easy to walk to as well. James was an excellent host as well as his associates Ellie & Fernando. I will definitely ask to stay again on our next trip to London.

Thanks for the alert: a new tap has since been fitted and lightbulbs replaced. (The bathtub is as pictured and should be no problem for anyone able-bodied.) James

“Excellent experience!!”

James and his staff were truly wonderful. He accommodated us on a busy Easter weekend which was greatly appreciated. One of the people who works for him, Fernando, was gracious enough to have had the flat ready and tidy so promptly that we were able to check in before check in time after a grueling redeye flight from the US.

We enjoyed the 10 days we stayed at his flat thoroughly. We could have stayed even longer!!

Southwark is a wonderful area, very true to locals. It is calm and peaceful, yet within minutes of some of the most major attractions. Down the street is a wonderful café, called Terry's café (along with MANY pubs and restaurants).. a 10 minute walk from Borough market, the Tate, the Thames.. just truly a gem.

The apartment is comfortable, the bed is large and the soaking tub will save your life if you enjoy getting to know a city like London by foot. The fridge is larger than most fridges you will get in rentals in Europe. It is nice and clean with multiple convenience stores nearby. Tube is a 5 minute walk at most.

I cannot recommend this apartment enough. My husband and I loved it so much that we will certainly stay there again whenever we return to London.

“Found a winner in downtown London”

I discovered this property on Holiday Lettings and it matched all of our criteria as far as price, amenities, and location. Paying the deposit and then the remaining cost was a breeze as James is very easy to get hold of and quick to respond to my many emails. We traveled from Heathrow to central London and got off at Lambert North. We were a little out of our way, but when I called Ellie, James assistant, she was able to clearly direct us to the flat. It is on a quiet street with minimal traffic (as it is very small) and as clear in the pictures, it is a lower level unit. Ellie and another gentleman were there to meet us and gave us a rundown on all the features of the apartment so we would be comfortable. The place was very well decorated and fully furnished. It is very well maintained and provided all the comforts of home we needed. We ran into no issues at all during our stay and couldn't be happier with the location. As we are both late 20's males we had no issue walking around to just about every major site. We almost never used the subway as London was a walking friendly city. The location has a market right around the corner as well as some local restaurants and cafes for a great English breakfast (Terrys Cafe). Another nice perk about London is the Barclays cycle rental stations which are located literally everywhere in the city. There is one right now the street from the flat and thus cycling to all the major attractions is another fantastic option and a lot cheaper than the tube. Checking out was as simple as locking up and putting the keys in the drop box. James contacted us a few days later letting us know he found a necklace left behind for which he was happy to mail back to us. Getting the deposit back was easy and hassle free. Truly no complaints at all, when I return to London next year for the NFL series I'll be calling up James again to book with him!
