Fern and Claire were great! This was my second time with them and I had just as much fun. Their place is the perfect launching off point.
Claire and Fern were lovely hosts, and I had a pleasant experience staying there. The location makes it very convenient for traveling as the Vauxhall underground and rail is just five minutes walk away. Bedroom was clean, comfortable and reflects what the listing says. The neighbourhood has mostly all the necessary amenities such as convenient stores, restaurants, cafes, and I had no issues walking to and from their home. I enjoyed my stay with Claire and Fern and I highly recommend their listing to those visiting London.
Fern and Claire were really kind and brilliant hosts. I felt very welcome. The place was nice and central to my need. Around the There were two underground stations, Vaxhall and Oval, Vaxhall national rail station, and some bus stops near the house. They made me feel like I want to come here and London again. I absolutely recommend this room :)
Claire and Fern were both very lovely and welcoming when I arrived. The room was exactly as pictured and very comfortable and private. The bed although low was super comfortable to sleep in at night, with a plug right behind so I could charge my phone and still be on it! The bathroom was also very clean, the toilet is in a small separate room which I have learned is a typical British home set up, but it made it more private. The neighborhood was pretty safe, with a park near by. The house was a quick walk to the station down a street of small shops and cafes. Being in Zone 1 was great because you are in the middle of it all and can get throughout London quite easily using the underground or buses. Overall, my stay was great, Claire and Fern were lovely hosts always welcoming you back and ready to help when you needed it. I would recommend their home to anyone traveling alone and needing a place to stay.
Friendly and helpful host. Convenient location 7 mins to underground, bus and train stations.
It was such a nice experience staying at Fern and Claire's place. The place was close to station and very easy to access everywhere in London. Also, room was very clean. Fern and Claire are very friendly and I enjoyed talking with them a lot. I will definitely stay at their place next time I come back to London. Thanks!
A simple room on a good handy location, five minutes walk to Vauxhall station and 17 minutes walk to Big Ben on my watch! Nice friendly couple as my hosts were welcoming and I enjoyed staying there.
