Mike and I look forward to welcoming you to our spacious home just a few steps from Oxford Circus.
Our house is a converted dress factory, built as part of the Lord Howard de Walden Estate in 1906. Your rooms are directly accessible from the outside, via our private front door and a staircase. Mike and I live in a flat above the three letting rooms, on the third and fourth floor.
We are recommended by Sawday’s and have signed up to their Clean and Safe Charter.
Our breakfasts are legendary. Guests love the English or continental breakfast that is delivered to your room in the morning. Our kitchen posesses a 5 star rating for cleanliness from Westminster City Council.
We are an owner-run establishment, with only three rooms and no staff, so you will find your stay here quiet and convenient. We are within walking distance of Euston and Kings Cross/St Pancras International stations.
Each room has a slightly different style. Choose from a cosy and quiet room at the back of the house (3), a larger sunny double room facing the street (2), or the suite with a fully fitted kitchen complete with dishwasher, fridge, induction hob and double oven (1). You are welcome to order food from the many local restaurants and eat in your room.
Our neighbourhood, Fitzrovia, is a little more bohemian than the rest of Westminster, with its quirky collection of cafes, independent shops and design studios.
We are close to BBC Broadcasting House in the centre of British media. You might even spot a celebrity or two in one of the local restaurants. Great Titchfield Street and the cross street, Foley Street, just south of our house has a host of restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes and pockets. Just around the corner is the celebrated Clipstone – stylish canteen style food – and her sister restaurant Portland which has a Michelin rosette.
You can shop for the best of British and continental foods in nearby Marylebone High Street. There is a farmer’s market every Sunday and a host of speciality food shops like the Ginger Pig (organic meat), Fromagerie (fresh cheeses) and Dalesford Organic as well as a Waitrose supermarket. Delivery can be arranged.
If you like to shop, we are five minutes walk from Oxford Street, where you will find Liberty and Selfridges. In side-streets like Bond Street and Carnaby Street there are a host of boutiques from international names like Prada to interesting young British designers. And if you want to relax, the 165 hectares of Regent’s Park is just a few minutes walk away.
You won’t need your car to visit. Part of the pleasure of the area is that we are within walking distance of many attractions such as The British Museum and many small and interesting museums such as the Handel Museum or Sir John Soane Museum (where Mike volunteers once a week). We have a bike-hire stand right outside the building and if you bring your electric vehicle, parking in Westminster is less than 1£ for 4 hours. You will find many overnight charging points and some fast charging stations. Look at Zap Map for more information. Check congestion charge here
‘Breakfast was delicious! Thank you so much. As you can see we ate it ALL. No need for lunch!
