About this listing
This light and spacious double en-suite is in a beautiful, large, hospitable Victorian family home, only a mile from the Olympic Park & Stratford Westfield shopping centre.
We offer: excellent transport links to central London; a large garden; free wifi; easy access; inclusive breakfast (special diets no problem)!
•The large double bedroom has an en-suite shower, toilet, wash basin and T.V. The furniture is antique and vintage - the comfort is modern. Children welcome.
• A second double bedroom is available with a shared bathroom and toilet - see the listing Grove Guest House 2
•Free Wifi and laundry facilities are available.
•Breakfast is included; evening meals can be provided by arrangement. We happily cater for a range of dietary needs including gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian, vegan and meat/fish eaters.
•You are welcome to relax in our large garden or in the conservatory, and to smoke in the garden / conservatory (but not in the house).
•We are very access-conscious and are more than happy to discuss your needs! The house has shallow steps at the front entrance, a stair-lift to the first floor and three steps up to the bedroom. There are grab-rails through corridors and in the en-suite (where there is a step up to the shower). There are shallow steps into the garden and an additional accessible toilet in the garden!
•We have storage for cycles or a mobility scooter and parking for one car on the forecourt (by arrangement).
•Local transport offers fast bus/train/tube links to the West End, Central London and Docklands. Forest Gate railway station (in the local shopping centre) is just a 3 minute walk, with the Stratford rail/tube hub just two stops away. Museums, galleries, theatres and West End shopping are therefore within easy reach. Also close at hand is the Stratford Cultural quarter with the historic Theatre Royal Stratford East, Stratford Picture House and the arts centre Stratford Circus. Taxis from Stratford station to the house are reasonably priced if you are late home.
And a special mention for Dr fans...we are a short bus ride away from the internationally famous Dr Who Shop and Museum.
We look forward to welcoming you to our family home, and will do everything we can to make your stay comfortable, relaxing and memorable.

La casa está muy bien conectada con el metro, ya que a pocos metros hay una estación y está a 20 minutos andando de la estación de Stratford que está muy bien comunicada con el resto de la ciudad y con el aeropuerto de Stansted (autobus).
La dueña de la casa (Hazel) me hizo sentir muy cómodo. En una gran persona y una gran anfitriona. Muy buena conversadora y muy paciente con mi nivel de inglés, que es más bien bajo. Conoce muy bien Londres y nos ayudó mucho a planificar nuestra visita.
Hazel made me feel extremely welcome in her cosy home. She is warm, outgoing and cheery, and she treated me like a friend. My room (the one with the en suite) was as I expected from the web site -- large and bright with lots of light coming in from the bay window - very comfortable. Staying at Hazel's made my stay in London all the more pleasant and memorable. I'll definitely go back the next time I'm in London! Thank you Hazel!
Nous sommes arrivés épuisés mais Hazel nous a accueilli chaleureusement, juste ce dont nous avions besoin.
Les chambres répondaient parfaitement à nos attentes. Le petit-déjeuner était très bon, copieux et varié. La rue était calme, la maison facile d'accès.
Hazel est une personne charmante, avec de belles histoires à raconter. Elle a su nous donner quelques conseils qui ont rendu notre voyage encore plus agréable.
I found Hazel to be very accomodating and a great host being attentive to detail which was all in the interest of making my stay there as pleasant as possible. Hazel is a relaxed warm and friendly host keen to offer a nice hot drink on arrival. The bed was comfortable and the shower nice and hot which was great. I didn't feel rushed and the breakfast was tasty too for starting the day revived. Hazel has good knowledge of London and future guests will no doubt be able to benefit from this if they stay here. I will be back im sure thanks for your hospitality.
What a lovely house! And wonderful hospitality. I'm looking forward to staying again.
Very hospitable and good value for money.
As always I had a lovely evening with Hazel in the comfortable friendly and welcoming surroundings of Hazel and her home!

About the Host, Hazel
I am greatly looking forward to welcoming you into our home. My family has lived in this house for 59 years - at times there are 4 generations here! My mother and grandmother chose this house together because they thought it would be a great place for parties......
I will be your host.I love London and look forward to telling you about our favorite places.
I adore cooking - and am very happy cooking to suit specialist needs - my sister is celiac so I know lots of recipes without gluten! and cook for friends who are veggie and vegan... as well as meat eaters. I have the family secret recipes for salt beef and chicken soup
I am a community arts and worked as a Director of the Charity Free Form Arts Trust Ma and I were very involved in a Carnival Association and College and created Mas for Notting Hill Carnival for many years. My mother was a hairdresser and also a volunteer at the local Hospital.
There is always music playing in the house - ranging from Big Band to Bee Bop, Soul, Reggae and Klezmer....... We love going to our local cinema - part of the independent Picture House chain - and to concerts and performances at the historic Theatre Royal Stratford East and Hackney Empire. We make great use of being in London to visit galleries, museums and concert venues.
I am an enthusiastic gardener and I hope you will enjoy relaxing under the shade of a large Horse Chestnut tree I planted as a conker when I was 5 years old!
