We were in the perfect location to get to everything from! This flat is a great combination of being right off two main roads (Westminster bridge for example) but being quiet at the same time. Unfortunately we found out Lambeth North station was out of commission for longer than the duration of our visit but Waterloo was merely a few extra minutes walk, so the convenience of having two stations available was top notch. The view off the balcony of the eye was a great way to get up to and have breakfast under. My friends and I very much enjoyed that we could run up to tescos a couple streets up and get some light groceries and a way to utilise them instead of having to find breakfast somewhere every day. If you like Indian right next door the tandoori place delivers and has great options. There is a rain shower in the bathroom and after a long day of walking it's very relaxing and soothing.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to meet Ann personally, only through messages. Her communication leading up to our booking was fantastic and felt really looked after. We also arrived a bit ahead of schedule and the person she had asked to meet us. Her friend was lovely, efficient at giving us a tour, making sure things were on and set for our use, and eager to know if she could be in assistance to us. As a reflection of the host, she is a very good example.
