GO Guesthouses in London

Guesthouses in London Guesthouses in North West London are usually found in leafy residential areas close to the action but far enough away for you to be able to wind down at the end of the day.

At the luxury end of the guesthouse scale is the Langorf Hotel [map], NW3. With its large, well equipped rooms and personal service you could be forgiven for thinking that you are staying in one of the West End’s classy accommodations. But guests love the Langorf Hotel because for all the comforts you receive it's still value for money.

A charming Victorian retreat awaits you at the Buckland Hotel [map], Swiss Cottage, NW3. This hotel has rooms ranging from single to family all located in a residence on a tree-lined crescent, close to famous local pubs and Hampstead Heath.

Over in North London one guesthouse that provides comfort particularly well is the Kandara Guest House [map], which has been awarded three diamonds from the English Tourist Board. Having years of experience in providing visitors to the area with accommodation means you can be confident of getting the facilities you need at an affordable price.

Ossian Guest House [map] aims to provide accommodation that’s elegant with a relaxing atmosphere. This is done partly through the hospitality of your hosts and partly through the features in the house. All the rooms are fitted with interesting antique pieces but all the rooms have en suite bathrooms (one with a Jacuzzi) and the beds are dressed with luxury cotton sheets.

East London has a selection of guesthouses providing a warm East End welcome.

Conveniently located just off the A11 and close to South Woodford tube station the Grove Hill Hotel [map] provides comfortable accommodation conducive for getting out and about in east London and beyond. The Tudor style Grove Hill Hotel is open all year round and has all the creature comforts you need including satellite TV and trouser press in your room with a bar and onsite parking.

Located on Lonsdale Road in Leytonstone, Sunningdale hotel [map] is an east London guesthouse where children are welcome, parking is available and special diets are catered for – as well as being value for money. In the South East head to Lewisham first for some fine traditional accommodation.

If you want to discover the tourist spots that nobody but the locals know about, check into one of the many family-run places like Manna House [map], Hither Green Lane, Lewisham. This is located in a typical residential area and is particularly appealing to visitors from overseas who can see the suburbs that wouldn’t be available to view in a busy London hotel.

The south west of London is encapsulated in very English guesthouses such as The Windsor Hotel [map], Earls Court, SW5, which is a family run hotel that has existed for more than 40 years. The hotel is a beautiful Victorian building, which has retained its charm and many original features over the years.

Set in one of London’s quieter residential streets The Abcone Hotel [map], Ashburn Gardens, SW7, gives customers the chance to enjoy peace and quiet whilst being close to major travel links including the Gloucester Road underground station.

In the very heart of London, Bloomsbury is one of the best places to find both bed and breakfast accommodation and privately owned guesthouses. Home to a variety of publishing giants and independent bookshops, this literary district has a central location and a range of comfortable overnight accommodation.

Try the Ivanhoe Suites [map], Barrett Street Piazza, for an unusual stay. With a fully equipped gym and great value rooms this seven-bedroom hotel also benefits from a delightful Mediterranean atmosphere, which is helped by the al fresco dining feature.

Head to Argyle Street for a range of accommodation. Find traditional comfort at The Jesmond Dene Hotel [map]. This friendly family-run hotel offers visitors a range of facilities and has some of the best tourist locations right on its doorstep.

Particularly appealing to those travelling in groups, West London is where you’ll find the larger guesthouses. The Shakespeare Hotel [map], Norfolk Square, Paddington, W2, offers a range of facilities to ensure that your stay is pleasurable. Two comfortable lounges offer relaxing views over The Shakespeare’s pretty garden and guests are welcome to enjoy a soft drink, coffee or light snack at any time of the day.

The Balmoral [map], Sussex Gardens, Bayswater, W21, is a family run bed and breakfast hotel based in two Victorian town houses. Close to the scenic Hyde Park, this hotel offers an excellent English breakfast which provides the perfect start-up for a busy day of shopping or sightseeing.
