Wendy's apartment is in a perfect location, the apartment is private, safe and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay, communication was absolutely perfect, prior to, during and after my stay, I cannot thank Wendy enough for all her help.

The location is awesome, excellent access to trains, buses, shopping, amazing restaurants within an easy walk and plenty of lovely scenic walks along the river, in the parks, Hampton Court Palace and it's extensive grounds.

The apartment was extremely clean and comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, lovely bathroom with high pressure shower, the wifi was excellent which was important for me to be able to keep in contact with New Zealand, the added bonus the outdoor patio area with table and chairs and more outdoor chairs to sit in the beautiful gardens looking out to the Thames.

I highly recommend this apartment and definitely will stay again.

Once again, a big thank you Wendy for making my stay so enjoyable.

So good.... we came back again !!

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from our second stay at this fabulous apartment in Hampton Court and we had another wonderful stay.

The accommodation itself is presented to you spotlessly clean with lovely bed linen and lots of towels and fully fitted out with all the necessary top of the range appliances. Exactly as described in the listing description.

Wendy the owner gave clear instructions for our arrival as to the security entrance pass codes and how to access the property keys from the key box, so all is very secure for your stay including your car which has an allocated parking space.

Given the properties central location Hampton Court Palace itself is literally just across the road and is a beautiful place to visit either inside or just walking the lovely gardens. The ferry stops just by the bridge over the Thames which takes you to either Kingston or Richmond or once a day there is a boat that goes right into London and stops at Westminster bridge. The bus to Kew Gardens stops right outside the front door and the train station is just over the bridge and takes you into Waterloo in about 40 minutes. So your car can stay parked during your stay and you can enjoy all the lovely views !!

Lots of places to eat too ...our favourites were The Mute Swan 5 min walk towards the bridge, Henry's Kitchen for breakfast just over the bridge and if the weathers good, buy a picnic and bottle of wine and sit at the bottom of the gardens at the apartment and watch the world go by on the Thames...lovely.

We did all of the above and it was is to next year !!

Absolutely wonderful!!! Prime Location!!! Highly recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

Actually I give it a much higher rating then 5 stars!

All I have are positive comments about the apartment and Wendy! Everything is lovely, comfortable, and secure. The garden is beautifully serene and snuggled up next to the river- perfect for relaxing after a busy day. Restaurants, shops, train station, and Hampton Court Palace are a very quick walk away and London is about a 20 minute train ride. Very easy to get to anywhere you want to go- excellent location!

Wendy is the best! She is extremely helpful! The whole experience from booking to leaving the property was fantastic!

I will be recommending to everyone I know!

Everything you need for quiet London suburb stay

  • 5 of 5

Wendy's flat is comfortable and quiet for a relaxing stay with London a quick train ride away. If you are a student of RSN, it is a short walk to Hampton Court Palace. Kingston is also very close and convenient to the flat. I would highly recommend Wendy's flat!

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

I have to start by saying that the owner Wendy was quick to respond to my initial inquiry and subsequent emails. Payment is made by credit card, and there is a damage deposit which is standard with rentals. Homes way also charges a fee, think it was £50. There are no surprises when dealing with Wendy, which is good. Wendy was also helpful with arranging transportation on arrival and back to the airport. This is important when arriving after a long flight.

This apartment is in such a lovely location. I travelled with my teenage daughter and the apartment is more than large enough for two people. It takes a few minutes by foot to cross the bridge to catch the National Rail train to Waterloo Station, which takes about 40 mins. I purchased a 7 day zone 1-6 pass in an Oystercard at the shop at the station. I brought a passport photo for my daughter and she got a 7 day travelcard at the train station office. If I had brought a photo of myself, that would have been an option for me as well. The Oystercard and travel cards can be used in National Rail trains, London buses and London tube.

The apartment was clean and had all the essentials. Towels and linens were provided. We enjoyed sipping on some tea under the stunning Willow trees in the garden. (There were folding chairs that we took from the suite) It is a quiet and secure location.

You really must have dinner at The Mute Swan, which is across from the palace. We waited until our last evening to dine there. I think we would have gone a second time had we known it was so fabulous.

Wendy has a booklet with a lot of useful information in the suite. We took a boat to Kingston to do some shopping at Bentall's Shopping Centre, just go down by the river and wait for the boat. Schedule is on a chalk board on the end of the bridge. Pay when you are on the boat. It was a lovely 25 min ride down the Thames. We saw a few swans and Canada geese!

You can catch a bus #461 right in front of the Hampton Court Palace that will take you to Tesco on Hurst Road (a grocery store) or you can walk 30 mins. You will need to pay cash for the fare as this is not a London bus and just tell the driver where you are going.

We enjoyed our stay at Rotary Court and we would return in a heartbeat!

About Wendy Waghorn

Wendy worked in the Fashion Industry as a Fashion Buyer in London and around the world for over 20 years, moving on to interiors buying and interior design. Graham worked for the BBC as a Director of Photography and then freelance Film unit, so they bought this apartment for when they were working in London

Wendy Waghorn purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Wendy Waghorn chose Kingston-upon-Thames

They both love this area, as Wendy owned a fabulous Houseboat about 200 yards up The River Thames,so when this property came up, beside the River and next door to Hampton Court, they jumped at it. Whats not too like!It is also a very old building steeped in history, yet it has been modernised in a contemporary way. Giving the best of both worlds, and a super power shower!

What makes this apartment unique

Location, Location,Location.

Sitting on the patio, enjoying the view of the River and the beautiful gardens with a glass of wine. Perfect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for your welcome, I really enjoyed the wine and the stay in your apartment. Everything was convenient and perfect. I definitely would like to come back one day.
