Good service. Clean and safety The staff was very kind. You could have a good dinner at the pub. And maybe be a part of a party during your vacation. The location y ok and in days of the week is so quiet at night, not at the weekends

As a lone female guest I was slightly nervous! Why I spent that time worrying goodness knows because the whole experience was fabulous!!! The b and b was spotlessly clean, the room was beautiful and had everything I needed , including towels, iron AND hair dryer!! Oh and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Breakfast was a lovely...

Nice place to stay for a very competitive price in London, though I wouldn't have anything more positive to say. The breakfast was pretty poor, and the location wasn't great - fairly far out from the city center and the most convenient tube line there seemed to be out of service for a lot of our stay. Still, this wasn't...

Nice staff, bed kind of funny, noisy during the weekend and also easy to hear noise from the next room. The next time I'll stay in Richmond or very central in London. It felt a bit out of the way, but the staff made up for quite a bit of it. Kind people. Pretty nice breakfast as well.

We still hope you might want to come back to us regarding the fact you liked our...

If you are a person who look for memorable and authentic experiences, this is one of those little gems. Admittedly, as a single female traveller, I was a bit hesitant upon arrival. A seemingly closed pub (a place for parties), a bit off, overlooking a cemetery? I rang the bell and was soon charmed by the well conceived, lovely interior...

I was on a business trip and looking for hotels in that area it was good value for money. Big and clean room, nice (continental?) breakfast, quiet although there's the pub downstairs. You can also eat quite good there. Staff was also friendly.

We only stayed 1 night but room was lovely plenty of room and clean. No noise and we would recommend it. I would have given it a 5 had there been a cooked breakfast in the morning but the chef didn't turn up and it was left to someone new to this pub to do the best he could. All...
