House rulesWe offer this accommodation to people who come to our city for the purpose of visiting, are sensitive enough to understand their allocated space is part of our family home and that Caroline & I are both working and are not professional hoteliers
Anyone who'd like to use our room as a “love nest” for example (e.g. to stay in all the time to only come out just for the bare necessities) or have breakfast at noon, or anything of that ilk, we would recommend several fine hotels in our area but our house is not one of them.
Breakfast is between 8 - 10 am. We can provide in our kitchen a space in the fridge for some drinks but no cooking. You are welcome to use the washing machine if you are staying with us for longer than 7 days.
If you intend to travel by car let us know beforehand to make sure we have the right number of parking vouchers

Reviews of this property
Staying at George and Caroline feels like coming home. They are very kind, very lovely people and very helpfull, Their Victorian home is warm and everything you will need for a great stay is in there.
After 5 minutes walk, you can take the bus, bringing you to the most beautiful places of London.
We would like to recommend George and Caroline for everybody who wants to see the city of London combined with a warm and pleasant stay.

C'est une très bonne adresse chez Caroline et George. 5 étoiles, c'est la note qui convient pour la qualité de leur offre.
My mom and I had a wonderfull time at George and Carolines. The house was exactly like in the pictures, very tastefull and homely. Everything was right in order, we even had some redberry tea in our room on the night of arrival. George and Caroline and George gave us all sorts of usefull tips, from where to take the bus to more specific ones on where to go, like Kings Road in Knightsbridge. Caroline specifically recommanded the Victoria and Albert museum, which we turned out to love! Furthermore, we had a lovely evening drinking wine and talking. To go short George and Caroline should be in every London guidebook, since they are a real asset to the city! :-)
George and Caroline are considerate, helpful and lovely people.
It´s the third time I staying with them and I feeling there at home :) !
I will definitely come a fourth time to George and Caroline.
Im Herzen von London wurden wir mit einem warmen Lächeln in einer ruhigen Oase begrüßt. Unser Zimmer mit einem Doppelbett und Blick zum Garten sowie schönem Badezimmer lag im 1. Stock. Das reichhaltige Frühstück im Wintergarten haben wir genossen. Bevor wir zu unserem Tagesetappen mit Bus oder Tube aufbrachen, versorgte George uns mit Tipps fürs Bummeln, Besichtigen und Essengehen. Wenn wir nach Hause kamen aus der schönen aber hektischen Londoncity voller Eindrücke, konnten wir bei Tee, der im Zimmer auf uns wartete, auftanken. Immer wieder zu Caroline und George, wenn wir noch mal nach London fahren (... und das machen wir bestimmt, denn diese Stadt ist toll !)
My sister Mareike and I spent a wondeful week in London. Our days were packed with Sightseeing, shopping, discovering the city – but the best part of our week definetely was coming "home" to George and Caroline in the evening. The two are such a lovely couple – so warmhearted, courteous and interested in so many things. We felt comfortable from the first moment. But George and Caroline did not only give as a beautiful place to stay – but also really valuable tips (for example how to get from A to B by bus or where to go to the movies the cheapest way) that made our days much easier. We could not have been more fortunate and we know for sure:Next time we come to London we will again stay with George and Caroline.
George & Caroline
hatten uns sehr herzlich nach Mitternacht empfangen.
Leider konnten wir kein B+B Zeichen oder Anschrift am Haus erblicken.
Das Zimmer wie das feine Morgenessen werden wir in bester Erinnerung behalten.
Herzlichen Dank durften wir bei euch zu Gast sein!
We had a great stay in London at George and Caroline's place! The room was perfect and a good size for two people. Breakfast was good, too !
George and Caroline were very nice and soo helpful - they helped with questions like which bus to take into the city center (bus connections are very good from the house) and Sometimes with planning the day if we had any questions.
They made us feel comfortable and all in all the stay at their house was just lovely!
Caroline and George were really great to us. Very warm and welcoming.They helped us to get around in London and the neighbourhood. The House was wonderful and so english and viktorian. We loved it. It is really like we have become Friends. Always again. Der Aufenthalt bei Caroline und George war wundervoll. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und uns mit den beiden sehr gut verstanden. Das Haus war echt englisch und sehr hübsch eingerichtet. Das Frühstück war Continental und liebevoll zubereitet. Immer wieder gern dort.
Pour un premier voyage à l'étranger en amoureux, George et Caroline ont été parfaits !
Aucune déception en arrivant, la chambre et la maison sont exactement comme sur les photos. Propreté parfaite. Petit déjeuner succulent.
George et Caroline sont adorables et vraiment très dévoués envers leurs hôtes: explications pour les bus, plans, conseils ...
De plus, pour les personnes qui, comme moi, ne sont pas douées en anglais, George parle couramment français ce qui facilite la compréhension.
Si nous retournons à Londres, ça sera sans aucun doute chez eux.
Encore merci pour cet accueil !
