A cosy home from home perfect for enjoying London!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our third stay at Cheniston Gardens and I believe our ninth with Ivy Lettings. Going to Cheniston again is like going home, and it is only a bus ride away from the Great British Beer Festival!!

High Street Kensington
Car: not necessary

A 2 minute walk from Kensington High Street tube station offering quick links to the rest of the city. There are a multitude of grocery stores, ATMs, coffee shops and restaurants all on the doorstep along the popular and thriving High Street Kensington.

Kensington is frequently associated with the city’s best dressed and well-heeled. As such, it is no surprise that it is notable in particular for its main commercial artery, Kensington High Street, home of the Whole Foods Market flagship store and a vast selection of affordable brand names. Moving westwards takes you to Shepherd�����������������������s Bush, home of the behemoth Westfield shopping centre, the largest urban mall in Europe. Alighting at the South Kensington tube stop, you begin to understand the area’s reputation as the city’s heart of high-brow culture. Right next to the station you will find a tightly knit (and well signposted) corridor of museums and galleries, all of which date from the 1851 Great Exhibition, whose profits Prince Albert used to regenerate the area. This includes the V&A, Science and Natural History Museums, as well as the Royal Albert Hall. The beauty of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park adds weight to London's title of most verdant city of its size in the world.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We booked this lovely flat for a week following a rather vigorous tour of the British Isles. It was perfect for three adults. The owner and management company were friendly and responsive, and very kindly facilitated an early check in. Washer/dryer were small, but got the job done. Damage deposit was returned on time. It is up three flights of stairs, so is not appropriate for people with stair issues. Very close to tube station. Short walk to Marks and Spencer for food and a very nice pub.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located on a quiet side street but yet is only 2 blocks from Kensington High Street where there are a variety of shops and places to eat and drink. The Kensington High Street Underground stop is only about 3 blocks away and you can get on the Circle and District lines which will take you anywhere in London. The apartment was clean, nicely furnished and the kitchen fully supplied. Ivy Lettings was very responsive and helpful and I would rent from them again.

Great place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment in Kensington. The apartment is perfectly located on a very quiet street. This is a real bonus in such a busy city as London. It is close to the tube which made it easy to reach any place in London you wish to visit. The apartment contained all mod cons, and had a super king bed, which are hard to find in London properties. It all made for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The property managers Katie and Holly were easy to contact and very approachable, and ensured that everything went smoothly during our stay. We would definitely stay in this apartment again when next we visit London. Keith and Glenda, Australia.

Owner's Response: Dear Keith and Glenda, Thank you so much for your kind comments regarding the quiet location and the super king bed, and especially your feedback on our staff. It's great to hear you enjoyed your time at Cheniston Gardens, and we would of course welcome you back in the future. Thanks for your booking and I hope we hear from you sometime soon! Best wishes, The Ivy Lettings Team

Absolutely great, we loved it and will come back, property managers very helpful

  • 5 of 5

Location: close to the underground and several buses at Kensington High Street, we loved Wholefoods (supermarket and food court), Waitrose also in walking distance, the usual Highstreet shops, nevertheless the flat is very quiet, no noise from the streets or anything else

Flat: really cosy and clean, kitchen with all equipment you might need (and more), bathroom with window, bedroom with comfortable bed (and I am really difficult here) and washing machine/dryer in a small room off the bedroom, living room with sofa bed which was perfect for our children, probably not for large people, small balcony, 2nd floor

Ivy Lettings: very flexible and accommodating with the check in and check out, we really appreciated that, thanks again! Quick answers to all emails, prompt reimbursement of deposit.

We will come again and will either look for this flat again or any other flat that is handled by Ivy Lettings.
