A very comfortable and convenient stay!

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom flat is comfortable and tidy with an excellent location in a modern planned community in charming Kew, a 10 minute walk to the underground which whisks you to Trafalgar Square in 30 minutes. Marks&Spencer food court "around the corner." Melissa could not be more helpful; her greeting was on-time and covered all the bases. My wife and I (late 60s) recommend this flat w/o any reservation whatsoever.

gret stay in Kew

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment. Melissa was there to greet us and was very helpful: the place had everything you might want, and is well situated for exploring Kew, Richmond, and London. Recommended.

Enjoying Kew

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay since the apartment was an easy walk to the river where we enjoyed pleasant walks, right next to the National Archives and not too far from the station for getting into London. Excellent location for a visitor without a car. The apartment was clean, spacious with a well fitted kitchen. The supermarket was close for buying provisions. Melissa was friendly and helpful. We will retain the address for future visits to the UK and would happily recommend the property to friends.

Nice London location away from the usual hub-bub

  • 4 of 5

Location right next to the Thames with shopping close by. Easy walking to buses, tube, and Kew Gardens. Development in which flat is located is a bit noisy, there were several evenings where groups of young men would gather in the street, laughing and talking loudly while kicking a football. Resident in flat just above walks very heavily and never seems to sit down, but roams back and forth for hours. The flat itself is nice, and was clean and neat upon arrival. Washing machine has some problems, some wash cycles and dryer cycles don't work. Shower attachment in bath is loose and has to be propped against back wall in order to use it. So facilities could use a few repairs, but overall the flat is comfortable. Pleasant owner who was there to greet us.

We spent most of our time exploring the area, the Thames Path is close by, allowing visitors to walk along the river. The Kew Gardens tube station is within a ten minute walk allowing easy access to central London. Kew Gardens goes without saying, a wonderful place to see, we spent two days there and didn't see it all. We also explored Richmond Park, which is about a 20 minute walk down the Thames Path.

Bottom line, noisy fellow tenants, facilities in flat need some repair but are usable, location couldn't be better, easy access to shopping and transportation. Would recommend to family and friends.

This is our second stay at the apartment, and would thoroughly recommend it. We cannot fault any of the facilities/location/security/surroundings.

The apartment is centrally located to the bus services/train services and shopping is so good at Kew Retail Park, just minutes walk away.

One of our favourite walks was along the Thames river to Mortlake, sometimes via The Ship, a nice pub on the way!

Thank you again, Melissa - we will definitely be back again!

Kindest regards
