For our first trip to London my friend and I decided to stay in a B+B, and we're glad we chose this one. Barnes is a beautiful suburb which is quiet and green but also a short, peaceful train ride to the city centre. The room rates are reasonable for London (or indeed for most of Britain) and the breakfast has a bit more variety than your typical "full English breakfast" offerings. The B+B feels very much like a home and the local pub is a nice place to relax and socialize. Stella is helpful and almost always there when you need her, and if she isn't around she will make sure you are taken care of.
The first time that we stayed the twin room we had was a bit small, and it was hard to pack and unpack given the space. This was rectified the second time, however, as we received the ground floor room which is also a twin but is very spacious.
