Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed 6 nights and found the apartment to be cosy, comfortable, and quiet. Warren met us on arrival and was very helpful. The Highbury area is delightful and we found the adjacent area of Islington to also be bursting with excellent restaurants shops and cafes. It took us no time to master the nearby underground train and bus systems with our one week pass (fantastic value at around 30 pounds). I was envious of the very fast internet available at no charge. There's no doubt we would stay here again on a return visit to the wonderful city of London; it's a perfect base for exploring.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT SUITABLE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is situated in a lovely area with local shops and restaurants close by. There is a great play area 10 minutes away and the tube stop is also a 10 minute walk. This made a great base for exploring London.
The apartment itself is clean and very well equipped. We stayed with our 2 and 5 year old sons and it was very well suited to them. Nothing dangerous etc that had to be moved - which we have experienced before.
We had been keen to find somewhere in London that we can use for repeat trips. This apartment is perfect for that. Not only did it suit us now but it will continue to suit our needs as our children grow. We will definitely stay again.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 7 days in the Highbury apartment and impressed by how clean, well furnished and close to the train station it was for the quick ride to London. The neighborhood is delightful! We really enjoyed trying the local restaurants and pubs. A food store, meat and fish store were all a quick walk away. Highbury park which is located near the apartment is beautiful! My husband, children and mom are all ready to move to Highbury!
