Martel Guest House
Ranked #57 of 578 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Martel guest house is in a strategic location, very convenient for Stansted airport arrival that to go into Central London. Our upstairs room was spacious and very quiet. The availability and kindness of the owner make it even more comfortable. Excellent freshly cooked breakfast by Mr. Philip. No doubt the next time we're going to London go to Martel guest house.
Thanks Mr. Philip!

The Martel Guest House is very fine, everything it says it will be but nothing more.
The rooms are OK but very plain.

The house is very basic and the owner actually lives down the road, so the 24hr reception is you walking down the road and knocking on his door.

The breakfast is cooked each morning but unless you want to wait until 7:30 for them to start cooking then the kitchen is closed.

Golders Green is not London and is a very nice housing estate, which could be anywhere in the UK.

It will in reality take you 45 minutes to get from Martel Guest House to central London and the walk to the tube or bus station is about 15 minutes.

The rooms have fridges but, as you know, domestic fridges hum and buzz and you will end up turning it off.

Very nice place, perfectly located easy to move( by underground with London Town and Stansted airport by bus). The room is excellent for a family, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is great, everything is perfect and the owner is an excellent advisor for traveling around London.

I feel very much at home in this fantastic hotel. The room is fabulously clean, warm and comfortable. The breakfast is incredibly delicious and the owner of the hotel cooks for every guest. The neighborhood is very nice, quiet, safe with easy access to transportations. It's my first time to go to London. I feel very warm to live in this home-like hotel.

Room Tip: Please reserve this hotel as soon as possible because it's very popular

I was happy to stay at the Martel Guest house - it was exactly as said "on the tin" - though the room was plain, it was spacious, clean and the ensuite bathroom had been recently updated - nice. The price was better (70 GBPs for a single) than it was at the local Holiday Inn - making it a "no brainer" to stay here. I would return. The Guest house is only a couple of blocks away from restaurants, shops and is located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood.

Great place to stay in NW London. Good location, near to all amenities, shops, transport and city center but also quiet and relaxing. Very reasonable rates, friendly atmosphere. Free wi-fi and cable TV is a big plus.

The room was nice and clean but the beds were a bit hard. A hot water pot and refrigerator were in the room as was the en suite bathroom. The shower was nice and hot. All in all a pleasant stay. We did not have the breakfast so we can't rate that but the smells seemed appetizing. The manager/ owner was very nice and accommodating.
