I stayed in Mariana's guest house for a month's posting at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton. It was an excellent stay and it would be hard to ask for more.
SERVICE: Mariana, Lina (the housekeeper), and Anna went out of their way to make my stay pleasant, and made me feel at home with their very personal service.
ROOM: Room was fully furnished with bed, table, reading lamp, microwave and cutlery, sink, fridge, and attached toilet. Free internet access is available. It was clean, spacious, and cosily decorated in a homely English style. Comfortable for rest and generally conducive for work.
BREAKFAST: I looked forward to breakfast served every morning in the dining room where I had many pleasant conversations with other guests from around the world. (Warning: they will offer you eggs every morning - your coronary arteries will not be very happy so eat in moderation)
ENVIRONMENT: Mariana's is located in a pleasant and safe upper middle class neighbourhood. Sutton station is a 10 min walk away and the high street a further 2 min out. This is a reasonably large suburban centre so you should be able to get all you need. There are half-hourly trains to London Victoria (45min), half-hourly trains to Blackfriars (1h), and slower trains to Victoria. If you go regularly to London Victoria, a zone 1-5 travelcard will be worth it.
I do strongly recommend Mariana's B&B. It is slightly more pricey than its competitors in the area but well worth it.
