We enjoyed our stay in your apartment at Bridgeman Road. It was very convenient for us, travelling with Eurostar. From St Pancras/Kings Cross it is a short distance and easy to reach. We came to London for a wedding, at the St andrews Church very close to the apartment. It was our home from home, very cosy, clean, we had enough towels and some coffee to start our busy day. And it was very quiet, thats amazing because you are in the middle of everything. We enjoyed dinner in a nearby restaurant. Your hostess was there on time with the keys and explained everything to us. No fuss, well organised. Thank you very much.

We loved our stay here so much! There were three of us, my boyfriend and I had the bedroom and our friend had the couch double bed in the living room. In fact it was a couch that turned into a double bed, but not a pull out bed, its new and fancy and it was very comfortable and she had such good sleeps on it! Clive was amazing, so helpful and so kind, so great to deal with over email and then super amazing in person. He has made the flat so wonderful. It is very clean and well supplied. Public transport right outside the door ( but you wouldn't know cause it's so quiet) and we would just jump on a bus and then a train, quick as anything plus it is on the Heathrow line. Fantastic place to stay in London! I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to London. Very convenient with a supermarket across the road. We would highly recommend this place. This is a great deal especially for London. If you are on a budget (even if you are not) and you are looking for a lovely self-contained place this is it!

Clive was a good host and had good proposels for our days in London.

well prepared for us: fine ambiente, fruits, fresh flours, and so on.

Our stay in the flat for a couple of nights was great. The flat was clean and there were many amenities available to us. It was comfortable for a family of four adults to stay in. The flat isn't too far from a few different underground stations and there are bus stops close by. Clive was also very helpful and accomodating with our check-in and check-out times.
I've stayed at Bridgeman Road for a long weekend together with my parents and sister. We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Althought some what small for four adults, everything was there (cutterly, glasses ect) for a comfortable stay. It has a good connection with King's Cross by bus, but for subway, it's a little bit more far off.
The neighboorhood is friendly and there are great shops and restaurants 15 min walk nearby. I would stay here again.

I stayed here during my jaunt through Europe and it was my first stop. When arranging the apartment with the owner, he was very responsive. All my emails were responded to within a day or two with all my questions thoroughly answered.
On the day of my arrival, even with many delays (flight delays, immigration delays, etc.), Clive was there waiting for my family to help us check in. Finding the apartment is relatively simple - the driver didn't have a hard time.
The apartment itself is cozy. I would say for 2 people, it would be perfect. For 4, you need to definitely like each other a lot. My family of 4 (two college aged kids) all fit, but it was occasionally tight. There is a real separate bedroom though, so it isn't a studio.
Clive also provided some breakfast items (fruit, milk, etc.) The location of the apartment was perfect. It is close to a subway stop - about a 5 minute walk. Not far at all, and I felt very safe walking back to the apartment at night. There are some kids in the area that like to hang out outside the apartment - but they were friendly and offered to hang out else where when we got back each night.
All in all, I would definitely recommend family and friends to stay here. The value of this apartment can't be beat.

The apartment was great. Clean and tidy just as advertised. Clive was very helpful as a host and attended to every need. The location was good to feel like a local. Many small take aways near by and a short walk to vibrant Upper street and local tube stations. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here for 3 weeks in December 2011 and really enjoyed it. Clive and anna were very easy to deal with and very responsive to our requests. The location was excellent - 7 mins bus ride from Kings Cross or 5 mins walk to the overground. Plenty of shops and pubs near by. Quiet neighbourhood. The flat is fine for 2 adults, ok for 3 but a little tight for 4 adults. Both double bed and the sofa bed were really comfortable and there are 2 good sized wardrobes in the bedroom. The kitchenette has a full sized oven, dishwasher etc but is a little short on bench space if you plan on cooking. We really appreciated the milk/fruit etc that Clive provided when we moved in. The flat was perfect for what we wanted and we'll definitely be back to stay again.
