Comfortable flat, excellent service
Reviewed 27 February 2013 for a stay in December 2012 (TripAdvisor)
The flat is comfortable, clean and nicely decorated, with all conveniences. Super efficient heating - useful in winter! Well equipped kitchen, cozy living room. As I was staying with an older adult relative, I took the bunk room which is really more suited to children - I could of course have used the sofa bed in the living room.
It's a ground floor flat so suitable for people who have difficulties with stairs.
Julie and Mike provided a very friendly, helpful and efficient service; you feel well looked after.
There were a couple of things I couldn't find in the kitchen (colander and cafetiere) but apparently either I missed them or they'd been taken!
Otherwise my only slight criticism is that the front door is not very well lit, especially when you're arriving for the first time and trying to see to operate the key safe.
Overseas visitors should note that Colliers Wood, despite its rural-sounding name, is a very ordinary and mostly rather dull suburb (though quite safe) and Boyd Road is a very ordinary street. But the price obviously reflects this - you'd pay more for somewhere in the posh part of Wimbledon, let alone central London. But Colliers Wood has its attractions too - don't miss the historic Merton Abbey Mills, or (if you have children) Deene City Farm. And with the tube station a few minutes' walk away you can be in central London in 40 minutes or so. The area's fine for food shopping; Wimbledon isn't far if you want more upmarket shops.
