Chic two bedroom Victorian terraced apartment on quiet street, home from home feel, very close to Olympia Exhibition Hall, Holland Park, Kensington High Street. Heathrow in 25 mins. Central line access to central London. Free wifi, warm welcome

The space

Gratton Road is a charming, well-appointed, two-bedroomed Victorian apartment in the ‘village’ of West London’s Brook Green in Kensington Olympia. The apartment has high ceilings, is light and airy and is decorated and equipped to a high standard. The apartment is located in a quiet residential area, on the corner of Milson Road, one of the most desirable roads in the area. This property is a dedicated, professionally run holiday rental business, and not a rental in someone's home. Though we have made it extremely homely!

This spacious apartment has a large living room and separate dining area with seating for up to six guests. There is a well equipped modern kitchen with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, oven & hob, microwave and full cooking equipment. There is a widescreen TV in the sitting room with all freeview channels, and DVD. Also a Bowers & Wilkins ‘Zeppelin’ docking station and Wi-Fi broadband access. The property is cleaned weekly, and there is also a washing machine available. There is security intercom access from the street below.

Gratton Road has two well-proportioned bedrooms, one with King size bed, made by the fantastically comfy Loaf, and plenty of storage space, the other with two twin beds which can be attached. There is a modern bathroom with travertine tiling and new bath and shower, and plenty of hot water. Towels and bed linen are provided.

This area of West London is within easy reach of Heathrow Airport (20 mins by car or taxi), the heart of uber chic Kensington & Chelsea, London’s glorious Holland and Hyde park s and the amazing new shopping centre at Westfield. There are many nearby Tube stations for access to central London, and one of the best gastro pubs in London, the Havelock Tavern, as well as many acclaimed restaurants in close proximity.

We look forward to welcoming you to your home from home...

No smoking please
Please be considerate to neighbours at all times

Please note: Check in is at 3pm. Check out is at 11am. We try to be flexible with this wherever possible, but it is frequently not possible due to other bookings. To guarantee an early check in, guests would need to also book the night the before so that we can block that date out on the calendar. Or you can use the fabulous AirPortr bag delivery service to get your bags delivered later in the day. And there are also handy left luggage facilities around London which we can give you the details of.

Please also note: We do not have a 24 hour reception desk for keys and arrivals. It is therefore VERY important that guests communicate any delays in arrival or flight times, either while en route or before that time, so that we can facilitate your arrival and collection of keys. We will NOT be responsible if the keys are not collected at the arranged time, and this will result in guests having to pick up keys from a third party location in Acton. (Hence also why it is very important that we have guests’ flight numbers so we can track the flight online.)

We did not find a dryer in the apartment, though there was a washing machine. I have suggested to the owners that they correct the ammenities list. We had to rig our own clothesline with a length of twine, as there also were no clothes-drying racks. The apartment feels spacious and is kept very neat and clean, if a bit worn in places from repeated use. It was great to be able to spread out while we were there. We loved the book collection, and made good use of the London guide book that was left easily visible.

Response from Elizabeth:
Thanks for the review Suzanne ... I just checked about the dryer, it used to say under where it was ticked about the dryer that there was not one in the apartment but that there was one only 30 yards walk away at the laundrette, but Airbnb seem to have redesigned their website a bit and that bit about the whereabouts of the dryer seems to have disappeared! So anyway, now I have unticked it. Sorry about that. But for future guests, please note, there is a dryer a very short distance away across the road (and a super spin semi dry mode on the washer, and a drying rack in the apartment) thanks again for staying Suzanne and happy onward travels.

We stayed 4 nights and it was great. The flat was comfortable and had everything we needed. There was plenty of space and it was great to have a lounge to relax in after a long day shopping. Plenty of places to eat nearby in local pubs or Westfield shopping centre. Tube (Shepherd's Bush and Hammersmith) in walking distance and overground very close which was perfect for my trip from Gatwick Airport. Heaps of information provided by Hugo and Lizzie beforehand on how to get there and things to do both locally and in London. Would recommend this apartment and would stay here again if in London again.

Extremely spacious apartment in a very cute neighborhood a little outside of central London. Plenty to do near the apartment and easy access to the underground if you want to go see the sites. We had a few issues with wifi in the building but Lizzie and Hugo are extremely good communicators and called the cable company for us immediately. Overall a wonderful stay!

Very comfortable apartment and well located, 5' walking to metro station or 5' to a direct bus to Picadilly Circus. Hugo did a fantastic follow-up at our late arrival until we went into the apartment. Highly recommended for families.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The flat was perfect for our family of four. It is conveniently located near public transportation and walking distance to local restaurants and convenience stores. Hugo and Elizabeth were most helpful with communications before and during our stay. Highly recommended.
