Francesca Goldsworthy purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Francesca Goldsworthy chose Notting Hill

We have always loved Notting Hill because of the wide open spaces of the Royal Parks combined with vibrant and eclectic mix of designer boutiques and market stalls of Portobello, and the variety of places to eat and drink which makes it a unique part of London.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a great place to stay where you will be able to experience every aspect of London!

Lovely stay in London!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first family trip overseas with our two young children (9 and 7), and we selected this flat based on all the previous reviews. It was a fantastic decision!

Similar to the other travelers, we found the convenience of the flat location to be excellent for the tube (central, district and circle lines) and the bus. It was an easy walk to Kensington Gardens for the kids to play at the park, as well as the Portobello Market on Saturday morning. The local restaurants are tasty, but we also went to the Tesco a number of times to get the basics like bottled water, eggs, paper towels, and even Krispy Kreme doughnuts for the kids in the morning.

We found the flat rooms to be spacious and comfortable, the bathrooms were updated, and the kitchen serviceable. We were also appreciative of the fact the wifi worked flawlessly the entire visit, and the owners had DVDs, puzzles, etc. available for the kids to entertain themselves when we needed some downtime (and having their own room with two separate beds was perfect).

Like previous comments, be aware that the steps down to the flat from the street are a tad steep, so anyone needing assistance should take this into consideration. The upstairs residents were mentioned in a few reviews -- our only addition would be that sometimes when a light was on upstairs at night, it would stream down into the courtyard and master bedroom slightly. However, it didn't bother the kids, or us. And yes, you will hear the hum of the tube if you listen closely at night -- this also didn't bother us at all. I would just consider that part of city living!

We have nothing but great things to say about the flat, the owners, and our visit. Highly recommended, and hopefully we will make a return trip in the coming years!

Perfect Flat and Location!

  • 5 of 5
This flat is in the ideal location. All pictures truly are accurate and the flat is indeed charming and homey. We arrived early in the morning and were able to drop off our luggage and was shown how to use appliances etc. We returned at 2:00 and was able to get right in.

Need to know about the property is that the flat has steep steps down to the entrance. If you are traveling with an older family member or with someone who has a handicap this flat is not for you.

suggested dining in the area: Zizzi, Champions Pub, Portabello Restaurante (make reservations), The Churchill Arm for Thai and just to view the beautiful building! (Reservations are a must!)

Nottinghill Gate Tube and bus stop right near the flat. Very convenient. We also did the Big Bus Tour (hop on/off) was also very a great form of transportation to see the entire city.

For car service we used the service they recommended on several occasions, Addison Lee, They were always prompt and efficient.

I would not hesitate to recommend this flat and would stay here again.

We loved this flat! It was clean, roomy, and quiet with nearby metro, bus stops and groceries. Portobello Market was close (5-10 minute walk) and Kensington Gardens are also nearby (10-15 minutes). We will definitely recommend this flat to friends. Thanks so much for a lovely visit.

Charming apartment

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for about eight days. It was very spacious and clean.
The art was wonderful to look at. The location across from Kensington Gardens was fantastic.
Two wonderful restaurants right around the corner were ZiZi's for Italian and Champion Pub for the best fish and chips. Bus stop was also right around the corner and the tube stop was
just a couple blocks from there. The apartment was very quiet at night and we slept well.
I loved being so near Kensngton Park. Would stay here again.

Excellent accomodations, convenient location

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our week in London and were very glad to have rented the apartment. The location was perfect for us, very close to the underground and buses, and it was easy to set out and explore the city. Francesca was very welcoming, and we were glad to be able to drop off our bags early and walk through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park the day of our arrival. We used the information she provided about neighborhood restaurants most nights and were never disappointed.
The apartment was spotless and we were glad to take advantage of the washer and dryer (which we hadn't expected). We are a family of four including a 16 year old and an 18 year old and we had room to spread out when we were not out sightseeing. The two bathrooms came in handy and there was always plenty of hot water for everybody.
We recommend the apartment highly

A Pleasant Stay In Notting Hill

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our London Spring vacation based in this Notting Hill Apartment. Pre-stay arrangements and payments were handled very professionally. Our flight arrived in the late morning, and the owners graciously let us drop our luggage at the apartment until it was ready for the afternoon check-in. They worked hard to ensure the apartment was clean and fresh after the previous guests. There was lots of room for our party of three, and I’m sure a group of four would also be very comfortable. The apartment is conveniently located a few minute’s walk from the Notting Hill Gate tube station and in an area of many restaurants and shops.

The unit is a “garden apartment” (below street level) so you don’t get a view other than the legs of passers-by. We like to cook breakfast and some meals when we are on vacation, and we found the kitchen functional but a bit small and the pots, pans, cutlery etc. to be a bit worn and dated. The Wi-Fi and TV worked fine.

The owners provided a very useful fact sheet for the apartment and surrounding area. Their recommendation of a local Indian restaurant (Durbar) turned out to be our favorite restaurant of the trip and we also highly recommend it.

I agree with a previous reviewer that the price for the value here is a bit on the high side. To be fair though, we found everything in London to be rather expensive vs. US prices, and there were quite a few stories on the news about the rapidly rising price of real estate in London, so this may be a general issue and not specific to this apartment. We can definitely recommend this apartment if you are looking for a convenient and comfortable place to stay while visiting in London.
