Alright for a hostel
Understaffed, cramped, cheerless and impersonal.
Someone else was in the room we had booked so we were moved to a different one without apology. Although we were assured the owner would speak to us, there was no sign of him during our stay. We were still charged the original amount. Glad we weren't eating breakfast as the kitchen was small and the food looked unexciting.
Good and clean - no frills
Great value B&B in an excellent location
I only stayed for one night, parking up locally, eating dinner just down the road, sleeping, enjoying breakfast, and then being on my way early.
For this it was a perfectly good B&B. But, it was clear from how close it was to a tube station, and with the array of interesting local shops and restaurants, that this would have been great for a longer stay. I'd certainly stay here again when I am back inthe area.
Saturday in Kew
A lovely , big, well-furnished room looking out on the street.
Very comfortable, although the shower room was a little small.
Room was cold on arrival every night.
Parking on site. - 2 cars only , the agent that run the b&b was welcoming and friendly, unlike his partner who didn't seem to have the time of day for people
Doors banging through the night
Cats in the kitchen. Doesn't do it for me
Kew B and B
This is a clean, no frills, value for money, bed and breakfast accommodation.
It's quite close to station and gardens with plenty of choice of places to eat nearby.
I'm afraid that this has to be the worst B&B I have stayed at.
Not long after I made the booking, I tried to contact the owner by 'phone and e-mail - both of which were ignored. As soon as we arrived, the owner asked for payment which is unusual. I stayed in Room 8 which has recently been renovated, but to get to the coffee, tea etc and the kettle you need to be a contortionist because of the eaves - I'm short and I struggled. The milks in the bedroom were 'off' even though they were long life. The rooms are very minimalist and the wardrobe is certainly not 'large'. The bed was comfortable, the linen was clean but the towels had seen 'better days'. My friend stayed in Room 7 and thankfully we were first down to breakfast (continental) as there were others who were turned away and asked to come back later because there was not enough room at the table. I paid £88 for my room and breakfast and appreciate that this is near London, but it really was not good value for money. The owner made me me feel that it was a chore for him. More worrying than anything is that I did not see any Fire Notices in the bedroom or any extinguishers on the landings.
The room was to small to be a double room, no space to move around the bed, shower room needed work , broken toilet seat , holes in ceilings not repaired , shower flooded the floor when used, damp smell, disappointing breakfast , would recommend the sofa was removed to make more space
We were given Room 1 on the ground floor at front of the house.
The bed was comfortable but one side was pushed up against the wall and old fireplace. A large and unnecessary settee took up most of the rest of the room. There was no provision of any bedside lighting, the window curtains difficult to draw. TV reception was very poor. Worse than any of this was the fact the people in the room directly above were thumping about and chatting noisily until 2.30 AM. The en suite was functional but smelled, due no doubt to the lack of a working extractor and the fact that the shower tray did not retain the water properly. No one enquired as to our comfort at any stage. We only saw the owner for less than 1 minute, at breakfast, when he asked how we were going to pay. The one bright spot was the young Nepalise student 'Ray' who served us breakfast and took our £88.00 cash payment. He was friendly, helpful and chatty. Should we decide to visit Kew Gardens again we would definitely stay elsewhere.
the only downside to our stay was the sloping roof in the room.everything else about our stay was very good also very friendly.
