Great family stay apartment

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment to be excellent and very central to supermarkets and tube station. The apartment was very well supplied with the basic supplies. Restaurants and pubs nearby were very good and reasonably priced. Thank you to Karen for all of her organising for us to be picked up and returned to Heathrow as well. Mark the taxi driver could not have been more helpful and punctual. A great holiday was had by all the family and would highly recommend the apartment

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at this spacious and modern apartment. We got plenty of exercise with the stairs :) The location is convenient to the Gloucester tube station, which runs on two lines, and many sights in the Kensington area. There is a Sainsbury grocery store next door that has everything you'd need.

Karen was quick to respond with a minor linens issue. I would recommend this apartment for large families or groups.

Family visit to London

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in an excellent location,spacious, quiet with wonderful views, and made an excellent base for us to introduce our grandchildren to London.

The only annoying issue we had was with the oven which took forever to reach the required temperature for safely cooking any food. After a day's sightseeing it is important to have an working oven to heat a fresh chilled meal, but this oven never even approached the required temperature.

Other minor niggles were

1. the initial lack of adequate cutlery, which was rectified by the owner.

2. The broken, unsafe, chair in the top bedroom.

3. the main light that did not work in the top bedroom

All these could so easily put right.

Overall our visit was a great success

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We appreciate guests feedback. We were not aware regarding the main light and chair issue. Such a shame as we could have dealt with both when we replaced the cutlery. We will attend to them immediately and have the oven checked also.😀 Thank you again for taking the time to review.

Modern 3 bedroom apartment with good access to transportation and food of all sorts.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property with room to spread out. It was perfect for our family of 5 adults traveling together. It is modern, clean, and fully wired. It has great access to the tube, buses, 2 excellent grocery stores, west end museums, and loads of restaurants within walking distance.

The greeter met us right on time and Karen from Heritage Rentals was very responsive with several questions we had during our visit.

2 things to be aware of with this property- all but 1 bedroom has to be accessed via the stairs which are very steep; and there is no traditional air conditioning so if you're there in the few warm weeks of summer, you will want to use the fans provided and leave the windows open on both sides of the apartment to create ventilation. The balcony and patio windows face west.

We would definitely stay here again for a group our size.

Great Location! Apartment was large and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in a wonderful neighborhood with restaurants, shopping, underground stop, etc. right there. The Victoria and Albert Museum, Kensington Palace, and Natural History Museum as well as Harrods are a short walk and the Gloucester stop allows access to literally everywhere we wanted to go. The apartment is large, clean and well equipped and the building is well- cared for and very nice. We had a slight issue with the bedding upon arrival, but Karen responded quickly, took care of all and even sent us chocolates! As others have noted, it is a duplex and the living area is downstairs with the two smaller bedrooms so the stairs could be a challenge. I would also mention the tub/showers have high sides so might be a challenge for some also. The bedrooms could be warm at night so we definitely had to keep windows open. We would definitely stay there again.
