About This Listing
Our room with private bathroom has a HUGE very comfortable bed. The bed measures 180/200cm with a sprung mattress and memory foam topper new as of Jan 2014. The bath has a freestanding roll top bath and the bubble bath required to go with it!
We have a three bedroom house just a short walk from Kennington tube station where you get access to both branches of the northern line. Providing excellent transport links to Waterloo, Kings Cross and the International Rail station St Pancras. There are also bus's that go just about anywhere in London from the Walworth road (three minute walk). If you are here to see Parliament and The London Eye you can walk there and stop for a bite on the Southbank. There are three rooms available this room is a double on the first floor with dresser and coat hangers for hanging clothes.
Lovely garden and patio area. The house is back from any roads so there is no traffic noise :) If you require meals this can be arranged, there will be breakfast cereal, bread for toast, jams, eggs etc available in the morning. Feel free to help yourself to teas and coffee.
There is an en-suite bathroom in this room.
There is an A-Z in the room to help you find your way about. We are happy to show you the local pub which has an excellent wine list and great menu all at a good price.
Also Parking can be arranged for an additional £10 a day notice required.
We love to meet new people and socialize however sometimes we can be busy with our work and study. We do like to travel ourselves and may on occasion be out of town but always contactable, with friends nearby if required. When we are around we do pride ourselves on our friendly Scottish hospitality and do strive to make your stay feel as close to home as possible.
Kathryn and Ben
This is your home while travelling and you should treat it as such :)
You will have full access to the kitchen and livingroom while you visit. Bens room is off the livingroom so we tend to move to the kitchen to keep talking after 10pm on weeknights.
Interaction with Guests
If i am in town i am always up for a chat etc however sometimes i have a paper due and can be busy. I work full time as a firefighter and i am studying part time for my masters so sometimes its hectic but most of the time i like a good chat. I would like to say though that it is not a hotel and its our home so the experience is very different to that of a hotel. I will try and help you in any way i can but i dont make a very good concierge. There are lots of leaflets and ideas for things to do in London on the table in the kitchen.
There is a street market and lots of great local pubs that do fabulous food.
This is perhaps the best neighbourhood in London for accessing the rest of London. There are good transport links for all of London including tube and buses.
There is no smoking in the house but we have a lovely area outside in the garden with table and chairs where that we ask you to smoke instead.
Other than that we are very easy going and ask only that you clean up after yourself if you use the kitchen, we have a dishwasher to make that easier :)
This room was everything we hoped for, a comfortable bed for after a day of exploring London and a clean bathroom. Use of the kitchen to make breakfast every morning was fantastic. Thank you Kathryn for the use of your home.
We loved our stay at Kathryn and Ben's apartment. We really did feel like we were at home and the king size bed was absolutely magic after our long flight from Oz! The room was spacious and comfortable. The en suite was also super handy, modern and clean as well. The only thing is the shower spray seemed to have a bit of a mind of its own but it was really no trouble and preferred to have a nice relaxing bath anyway. We didn't meet Kathryn or Ben but we were aware that we wouldn't in advance. Kathryn was always easily contacted via airbnb message.
We overall loved our stay and really enjoyed the local area as well. Only a few minutes walk from the local tube, or a 40-45 min walk into central London.
Highly recommended! Thank you Kathryn and Ben for a lovely stay.
My son and I stayed at Kathryn's place for 4 days. It is a very cosy place and we enjoyed staying there. Kathryn is a nice and very helpfull host. We felt like being at home. We can highly recomment staying at Kathryn's place. We will for sure stay there some other time.
The directions to the house were very good and we found it very quick! The room was very nice and very clean, the bed was comfy and everything was like Kathryn described.
Kathryn is a very kind and lovely person and it was always possible to reach her on her mobile phone, if she was not around the house. She was always asking, if everything's okay and if we need something which was very nice and we felt very comfy!
We'd love to come back!
Thank you for having us around! :)
This was a really lovely room to stay in. The hosts did everything in their power to make the stay smooth and nice. Very comfortable room and extremely easy to get to transportation. Gorgeous bathroom as well!
