Recently refurbished to a high specification, this basement-garden flat with its own entry via an external stairway, is situated on a fine tree-lined terraced avenue built between 1840 and 1852. The building is Grade II listed and in a conservation area. This is an opportunity to stay in a spacious, contemporary furnished, central London property with outside space for relaxation and dining.

Really really nice flat ! We liked everything. Perfect and great location for a London trip! Near to different tube and bus stations, nice Area around, quiet, very good equipment in the flat, tidy and clean - everything you need is there.
The listing description is accurate. The owner provides a perfect customer service, even when we were much too late he arranged immediately getting there a day late and gave us support ! We will come back :-)
Everything with these flat accommodations worked out great! The reviews previously posted, upon which I had relied, proved to be consistent and right on the mark. The high expectations that were set were all met. As such, there’s no need to repeat all the details here from earlier posting reviews.
Fred provides a great product and high customer service. He is prompt in all his communications, reasonable and flexible in confirming reservations, and more than fair in settling the financial arrangements. We alerted him in advance that our travel arrangements would not allow us to arrive in London and reach the flat until nearly 11:30pm. He accommodated our schedule to welcome us and go through the flat logistics upon our arrival. We are a family of two adults and three boys ages 10 to 15 and stayed for 9 nights in early April 2015.
We selected the area due the convenience through Paddington with multiple Tube lines and trains to Heathrow and Windsor and the walking distance to Hyde Park and other neighborhoods. We found the walk to the front of Paddington Station on Praed Street for direct access to trains and the Tube is only about 8 minutes and even shorter to the backside of the station. Other than the several steps from the flat front door to street level, there were no obstacles to roll our luggage to Paddington Station. Other trains we took in and out of Marylebone and St. Pancras were also conveniently just a few Tube stops away. We also jumped on buses near the street corner outside the flat front door and noticed taxis regularly passing by.
Two neighborhood restaurants particularly stood out. Bizzarro on Praed Street between the flat and Paddington Station had wonderful Italian food. Mandarin Kitchen by the Queensway Tube Station had terrific Chinese cuisine.
We just returned from an excellent 6 night stay at this wonderful flat. The apartment is spacious, modern and very well appointed. We are a family of five and the three bedrooms and two baths made the space very comfortable. Additionally, the kitchen is large and very well set up for meals eaten in. Finally, the location is just about ideal. The flat is on a very pretty residential street that is only a ten minute walk from Paddington Station which makes the entire city very easy to access. I highly recommend this property.
We were three "mature" women from the US visiting the UK for the first time. We spent our first five nights here and felt like we were visiting friends. Fred had thought of everything we could possibly need! The flat is lovely, clean, and quiet; no street noise! The geraniums in each window were a beautifully added touch. The flat is in walking distance of the Portobello Road Market and Paddington Station and lots of restaurants. Upon booking we received detailed information about how to get around the area. It helps to read the material before you arrive to avoid getting lost (very lost!) when one leaves Paddington Station via a different ramp, as I learned when I got home and read Fred's advice! Loved every minute at 120A Westbourne Terrace. Thanks for everything, Fred McLeod!
The spacious apartment was perfect for our family of 7. It was very clean when we arrived and it was obviously well maintained. The kids and the ones who were young at heart really enjoyed having breakfast in the garden. We loved how we could use the apartment as our base and got to relax and unwind without crowding ourselves out after a long day of sight-seeing. We also appreciated that we had everything we needed - from a well-stocked fridge to things we didn't think to pack or forgot to pack like umbrellas. It was definitely a better experience than our last trip staying at a pricey hotel.
We had 2 families each with a grown child here for a 4 night stay in October. The flat was beautiful - I would love to live here permanently. There were 2 nice master size bedrooms - one with a desk with computer and the other with an en-suite bathroom with shower. There was a smaller bedroom with a single bed and a very comfortable bed set up in the lounge for the 2nd young adult. The lounge was spacious with plenty of room for the 6 of us to socialize. The kitchen was beautiful - gleaming modern fixtures and everything one could possible need. We really appreciated the bread, butter, milk, eggs, tea and biscuits provided for us on arrival. There was free internet which provided good signal in the lounge and dining area- not strong in the bedrooms. We very much liked the binder filled with all sorts of London information We ate at 2 of the suggested restaurants and were very happy. Finally there is a beautiful flower filled courtyard - the bedrooms overlook it and it was the final nice touch on this great place.
