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 :)
Obwohl wir Kathryn nie persönlich kennengelernt haben (Sie war selbst im Urlaub.), war sie immer als freundliche Gastgeberin präsent, sie hat immer nachgefragt, ob wir alles hätten, ob wir etwas brauchen würden, usf.
Die Unterkunft ist gut in jeder Hinsicht, gut gelegen, man ist öffentlich sehr schnell im zentralen London, nettes, gepflegtes Zimmer und Bad!
Kurz und bündig: Sehr empfehlenswert !
Lovely ensuite room with very comfy king bed and gracious host. Easy walk from the tube station and, if you're walkers, really close enough to walk from most anywhere in London (without luggage in tow).
Kathryn's place is a great place to stay when in London. I felt I was staying with a friend for a couple of days. It is really close to the city centre. Only 1 stop you are at Waterloo station (is is where you will see all the sights). I highly recommend staying at Kathryn's place.
First airbnb experience but didn't regret it at all :)
Unfortunately we didn't meet Kathryn, but her words were helpful.
The place is really near for the centre, with the tube its easy to get into in minutes. The room was really clean and stylish and beautiful. The bed was amazing soft, if there wasn't this hot weather outside we could sleep there all day :)
It was really nice to see in the kitchen how many people have been there and left their words for Kathryn.
For a summerize, everything were really fine !
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 had an excellent stay at Kathryn's. Everything was very clean. The apartment is well located for London site seeing via the tube. It was nice to have use of the kitchen and the breakfast choices were good.
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.
