Crystal Palace is a lovely area full of restaurants and family-friendly bars with great views of central London. We love living here.
When we realised we'd been given the largest of the apartments for such a great deal we were stoked. Although quite basic the apartment had all the kitchen equipment needed to cook, much more than most expensive places I've stayed. The bedroom we used was huge and bed was very comfy. Sofa was a little old and not for sitting on for hours but for the price we paid we thought it was an amazing find.
Shower was great. Even had a bidet. We'd spent quite a bit more on another stay for 3 weeks beforehand and the shower was crap. Wish we'd stayed here sooner! Washing machine was new and very handy to have for the week.
To top it all was the absolutely stunning view from the living room window overlooking the beautiful oak tree and rustic garden and views of London.
The apartment is old but its got great character. Loved the church windows and Victorian period features. It's a stunning building from the outside too.
Great for short or long stays for family holidays or commute to London. Crystal Palace park is a great place to run and the town has a great village feel with heaps of cafes, restaurants and pubs.
I loved my stay. Thank you. Hope to stay again soon.
My family stayed here for a week in April 2014 & really enjoyed the flat & especially the backyard. Being Spring, it was brimming with flowers & greenery & was an excellent place for our 8yo son to explore. The flat was excellent value and the facilities all worked well and there were a decent amount of kitchen utensils to cook a proper meal.
It was easy to catch the train into the city & we quickly found out it was far easier to catch the bus from the stop across the road from the station & get off at the next one to avoid having to walk up the steep hill after a tiring day of sight seeing.
We really liked the view from the lounge room window, watching the city skyline & the squirrels playing in the oak tree at our eye level.
There were plenty of shops & supermarkets nearby to get supplies. We have recommended the flat to friends & would love to come back if we get the chance to visit the UK again.
Apartment as promised, very nice area. Owners helpful with info how to reach the house and in recieving delayed luggage. The kids loved the place! Overall quality of the place very much in line with pricing, in my opinion.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Crystal Palace flat. It was clean and comfortable and had a lovely backyard. It was within walking distance of a grocery store and different places to eat and shop. There also is a nice park to wonder through. We found it easy to get to central London by bus and train. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The only thing we found frustrating was the wireless internet connection did not work well. But, overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to our friends.
We stayed here with our three children and it was perfect for us. We were able to easily get in/out of central London every day using a Travelcard. The neighbourhood around the flat is great, with shopping and restaurants very easily accessible. Crystal Palace park is a lovely place to spend an afternoon - check out the dinosaurs! The hosts were very ammenable and helpful in every way. We absolutely would (and have!) recommended this flat to others. Thanks.
We stayed here for 2 weeks in January 2010 and had a great time: convenient location, well laid-out, very spacious and a real haven to come back to at the end of each day. The flat lives up to its description, the owners are helpful and friendly, and we'll definitely be back at some stage.
Crystal Palace, close to the centre of London, is a very family-friendly area. Eating out in Crystal Palace is a must with excellent food from all regions of the globe. Crystal Palace park is the place to work up an appetite or for the more sedate, antique hunting is always good fun. As well as easy and quick access to the centre of London with its famous historical and theatrical landscape, the apartment offers access to South East England's fields and forests (eg the famous Winnie The Pooh Ashdown Forest) and a slice of history (Leeds Castle and Hastings where Normans and Saxons slugged it out)
Other Activities: National Sports Centre close by, sightseeing, theatre, cinema
