My husband booked us a night here for a birthday treat as we only live the other side of London but had no time for a long trip away. We arrived on the very exciting DLR to the Cutty Sark station and within minutes were sitting having a welcoming cup of tea at No.16. We were staying in the Yellow room and after a day of bric a brac shopping and a local plate of whitebait we could think of no better way to spend our Saturday evening than sitting reading under a blanket in our cosy room watching the snow fall across the lamplights and church outside - it seemed like we were in a Thomas Hardy novel.
After a mighty fine cooked breakfast and another chat with Robert, the owner, we decided to take the boat home along the river and while standing on the dock with 2 vintage suitcases we had purchased from Greenwich market we felt very well travelled.
I can't emphasis enough how Mr Gray has managed to create a homely but stylish B and B without falling into the overhyped "boutique hotel" trap that seems to be hitting smaller lodging establishments at the moment.
Overseas visitors will be delighted with the Englishness here and I would recommend all Londoners to take a night off and stay at no16.
