The Space

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 details.
•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.

  • Hazel is a kind and lovely host. We had well communications before arrival. The room is spacious, bright, clean and tidy. It's good to have your own bathroom in the bedroom as well. The bed and pillows are comfortable and smell fresh. We had a delicious breakfast outside the garden in the morning, which was beautiful. We also had a good chat with Hazel after breakfast, Hazel is amazing, it's been a wonderful time during our stay. Thank you so much Hazel!

  • Very nice stay in Hazel's lovely home. Her breakfast was just amazing and she would try her very best to accommodate any special food needs of guests'. Bed and shower were comfortable. While the host, Hazel was just very nice :) She has made my first experience with Airbnb so wonderful. Will definitely be back when I visit London again!! (The private bathroom was a plus to the whole stay :D)
    Though the B&B is in zone 3, it is far more convenience than you think. The train station is just several minutes walk and you can get to central London by the tube in Stratford, which is just two station away from Forest Gate train station! There is also a wonderful shopping center in Stratford (Westfield City), in which you can find whatever you want!
    And dear Hazel, thanks very much for hosting me. I had very good time in your lovely home :D ( I start missing your breakfast now !! XD)

  • My second time here (this time with my wife) and even though the first visit was so great, we enjoyed this stay even more. Hazel and her mother are the perfect hosts, it was like coming home for Christmas. The breakfast was outstanding (Hazel's porridge is simply the best) and we really enjoyed the other meals, our Hot Toddy before sleep, etc.. Hope to come back very very soon!

  • I stay at Hazels place regularly when I stay in London for work. Can't fault it really, cheaper & far superior to many London hotels that are twice the price. I would certainly recommend.

I am greatly looking forward to welcoming you into our home. My family has lived in this house for 56 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...... My mother and I will be your hosts. We both 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!
