Maggie made us felt most welcome and even took us on a couple of trips so we could orient ourselves to the whole Docklands area. She took an interest in our well being for the whole stay. The accommodation was spacious and a number of unexpected things were provided like chocolate, fruit, basic food items etc. The apartment is a very short stroll to the Thames, and a short walk to the DLR train service at West Ferry which links to the Underground. We would recommend it to couples looking for a friendly host and a comfortable base to explore London from.

“Great Value and a short walk to the DLR station”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

We rented this studio for our trip to London. My wife and I were met at the door by the owner who gave us a quick tour. We found a fruit bowl on the table when we arrived and enough food in the kitchen area to make ourselves breakfast each morning. The studio is a short walk to the DLR station and once their it is easy to get to anywhere you need to go in London via the underground. The accommodations were spacious and came with WIFI and a large screen television. We had everything we needed we would be glad to return if we were to find ourselves back in London on holiday. The owner was very helpful in assisting us with any question that we had during our stay.

We found the place quite easy with the Instruction that I was given very close to public transport which we found a big plus to get around London Mrs Dimmock was wonderfully explaining to us about the are and the apartment and also took us on a tour of the city to highlight the dinner point of the area the apartment was clean and I recommend anyone would like to take the opportunity to stay there you want be disappointed

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and really enjoyed the flat. It was exactly as advertised and we were very pleased. Maggie and Ray were gracious hosts and really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The flat is on the bottom floor of their home but is completely private with its own entrance/exit. It was very clean and comfortable and the hosts provided a lot of nice things to make it feel like home. It's in a great location near two different metro stations (about five minute walk) for quick and convenient travel to all of what London has to offer. There is a great little pub right nearby where you can get a pint and some fish and chips after a long day. We would definitely stay here again!

“Great Spot Close to London Attractions”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just spent ten days here and when next we visit London we will be staying here again if we can arrange it. We have stayed in rented accommodation on eight other occasions, two of them in London and this was the best by far.

As advertised, it is a studio apartment, perfect for a couple who want a convenient base in London. There is a fair sized lounge area with a flat screen TV offering plenty of channels, two comfortable couches and a table and chairs.

In the sleeping area, the double bed is roomy and comfortable and has plenty or wardrobe space and a chest of drawers.

As was mentioned, the kitchen is not suited for preparing a dinner party, but it is quite sufficient for breakfasts, preparing picnic lunches if you want those and we had micro waved meals for dinner on a couple of occasions.

The bathroom is compact but well laid out and has lashings of hot water at a great pressure.

A washing machine is available upstairs and the Wifi is one of the fastest that we have encountered.

Arriving and departing will luggage it is probably best to use a taxi. Maggie, our hostess, kindly arranged for a hire car to meet us on arrival and to take us to the International rail station on departure.

For the rest of the time, the apartment is midway between Limehouse Station and WestFerry Station on the Dockland Light Railway. We tended to use Limehouse Station as the walk was more pleasant. It is possible to walk into London if you wish, the Tower is around 30 minutes away at a brisk walk.

The area is very pleasant and we felt very safe there. The Grapes Pub is at the end of the street, less than five minutes away and we made that our local. There are other restaurants/bars available including one of Gordon Ramsey’s gastro Pubs which we used on Sunday night when the Grapes doesn’t serve food.

There is a park across the road from the entrance through which you can walk to either of the stations. The Thames Path runs behind the Grapes and there are lots of little docks and locks to explore.

“The best London studio ever”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We rented this place for just 5 days because it was new to us. But after this I wish we had booked it for a longer period. It is a nice and comfi studio. All you could wish for for a nice stay in the City of London. The owners, Maggie and Ray, gave us very warm welcome on arrival. A grand tour through the erea, a safe parking space, helped us with theatre tickets (even took us there) a full fridge and fresh fruit. What more can you wish for. We will defenitely return for another stay.

Cheers from Amsterdam,

Marjolein Bridie and Erwin Rust
