“Roof Tops” B&B
Very nice and friendly host. High standard on room and lovely breakfast. We will definitely come back. Away from central Ealing but very nice and quiet area. Value for money. Review on Airbnb May '17
“Great place to rest after a day in London” (7 Derwent Yard)
We had a great time in London especially thanks to our flat booking. It is perfect for a family with 2 children, there are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a big living room and kitchen well equipped. Location is just nearby the underground (Northfields station on the Piccadilly line) and there are shops and nice restaurants (especially the Indian one !) close to the apartment. Vanessa is really kind and helpful. She was available when we arrived and took time to explain us everything about the flat. We fully recommend you this flat. May '17
“Excellent on all counts” (7 Derwent Yard)
The flat is very well kept, pleasant, and its location is extremely convenient (close to the tube station, bus station and a neighborhood supermarket). If you are with a car - you get a spot in an enclosed car park under the building. The representative for the owner, Vanessa, was very helpful and attentive, and we thoroughly enjoyed the couple of weeks we stayed in the flat. As frequent travellers to Ealing, we plan to stay at this property in the future. April '17
“Ottima posizione – Buona la casa” (Windermere House)
Abbiamo soggiornato in sette persone (4 adulti + 3 bambini) in Windermere House situato nella tranquilla Northfields. La casa è vicina ad un bel parco e a distanza di max 5 minuti a piedi ha tutto quello che serve: market , ristoranti di tutti i tipi, stazione metropolitana linea Piccadilli circus. Molto comoda se si arriva a Londra volando su Heathrow. Casa tipica inglese con un piccolo giardino sul retro. Molto gentile e disponibile la sig.ra Vanessa che su ns richiesta ci ha stampato le carte d'imbarco per il volo di ritorno poi fatte trovare in casa . Consigliata vivamente a famiglia con bambini. April '17
Translation: "Great location - Good home". Our family of seven (4 adults + 3 children) stayed at the Windermere House located in quiet Northfields for seven nights. The house is close to a beautiful park and a max 5-minute walk away has everything you need: supermarkets, restaurants of all types. Only a short walk to the Piccadilly line tube which is handy if you are flying into London Heathrow Airport. Typical English house with a small garden in the back. Very kind and helpful that Ms Vanessa on our request printed out our boarding passes for the return flight and delivered them to the property. Recommended highly to families with children. April '17
“Lovely and welcoming house” (Orchards House)
We stayed at the Orchard house for over 3 month while we had some building work going on in our own home. It is a lovely and welcoming house with a nice little garden. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and baking. The beds are very comfortable, which is a big plus as nights can be short with two small children. Also the location of the house is ideal. Close to a beautiful park, shopping, restaurants and tube station. The road itself is quiet, with free parking not far from the property. We enjoyed our stay very much. A big thank you to the manager and owner for looking after us so well and for being very flexible regarding our leaving date. Oct '16
“Very nice apartment” (Ovington Gardens Penthouse Apartment)
Very nice apartment and superb location. I loved it, it is comfortable and very clean and near all the important places in London. Sept '16
“Très beau cottage” (Shepherds Bush Cottage)
L'appartement est une maison victorienne typique complètement restaurée récemment. Les pièces son très grandes, très lumineuses et propres. L'équipement est moderne et complet : rien n'a manqué pour notre séjour de 10 jours pour visiter Londres. Le quartier est très calme, le cottage se situe au bout d'une impasse. Une station de métro se trouve à 50 mètres, sur un axe principal où se trouve également des arrêts de plusieurs lignes de bus. L'appartement est très bien situé pour visiter Londres : en 15/20 mn vous êtes au centre, proche des parc, des monuments et musés. De nombreux commerces sont à proximité, pour faire les courses quotidiennes mais aussi pour le shopping (il y a un grand centre commercial juste à coté) Nous avons pu profiter pleinement de notre séjour, nous recommandons cette location sans aucun problème. Aug '16
“Great stay” (Jefferson Apartment)
Vanessa is a great communicator and ensured the flat was available when agreed and clean and tidy upon arrival. She was available on her mobile when issues arose and was very pleasant to deal with.
The 1 bed flat on the ground floor was easy to access and had all the required amenities including good size TV, easy to use wifi and full cooking facilities. It is bright and quiet, which is excellent after a busy day in the city centre. The flat is as advertised within the images and contained no hidden surprises.
We would highly recommend the flat for people looking to stay in the area for either a short or longer term stay. April '16
“Home away from home” (Jefferson Apartment)
This apartment is in a wonderful location. It is close to the tube, grocery store, bus line, ATM and few restaurants. Vanessa is wonderful, very helpful, and really a sweet lady to correspond with. Thanks for everything Vanessa. We do plan to return to London and will be giving you a call, again Many Thanks Vanessa! April '16
“The cottage was perfectly appointed” (Shepherds Bush Cottage)
The Shepherd's Bush cottage was just the place we needed after 10 days in Europe. The cottage was perfectly appointed with a great eat-in kitchen, dining room, living room with comfortable couches, updated bathroom and 2 bedrooms upstairs. The house is registered so it has a wonderful quaint feel of old England. The location is great, close to grocery stores so that after 10 days of restaurants we could cook more healthy foods and relax at home with good meals. It's also very close to public transportation and the Westfield Mall, but the street is very quiet so you would not even know it, unless you wanted to. Best of both worlds.
Going even one step further, the owner, Sharon, was warm and inviting. We met her when we arrived and she made us feel welcome from the very first minute. We found that we had alot in common and had a lovely dinner together. We left wishing we lived in the cottage and knowing that we had made a friend. Many, many thanks to the perfect end of a great vacation. We will be back!!! Feb '16
Testimonial from a property owner
As property owners we have found Wright Apartments extremely thorough, professional and responsive. We are very pleased with their personal service and competitive fees and, over a 10 year period, we have had an occupancy rate of 73% on average. With short term rentals it is essential that our clients receive excellent customer service and Vanessa is always very helpful and friendly and quickly resolves any problems our clients may have. If you are a property owner considering offering short-term rentals, we highly recommend Wright Apartments. Dec '15.
“Always enjoyable” (Fulham Apartment)
We are a family of four. We have stayed at the Fulham apartment more than four times over the last few years. It has always been enjoyable. The white stucco apartment is well maintained with modern design. The rooms are quiet and beds are comfortable with good linen and quilts. Travelling is easy as there are many buses in the immediate area that connect to various parts of London...Oxford Street, Knightsbridge, Notting Hill, Victoria, Liverpool Street....
We also appreciate the kitchen and dining facilities. When we like to, we can always stay in and have home meals! Above all, Duncun is very helpful and attentive to our needs during our stay and Vanessa of Wright Apartments is most professional and efficient in helping us with our booking etc. Nov '15
“An amazing week” (Shepherds Bush Cottage)
We had an amazing week and the Cottage was perfect. It truly felt like it was our own little home, very cozy. Being a very short distance to the tube was an added bonus. We loved it and highly recommend it. Oct '15
“Very nice apartment” (Fulham Apartment)
The apartment was very nice and the local area fantastic. Aug '15
“Superb Location in Zone 2 Just Steps from Central Line” (Shepherds Bush Cottage)
My wife, daughter, and I spent nine nights at the Shepherd's Bush Cottage. Overall, it was a great experience.
Positives: The location is fantastic. You are a short, non-crowded walk from the Shepherd's Bush tube station. However, you are on a dead-end little street that remains relatively quiet. Across one street from the station is a small shopping mall with the budget grocer Morrisons and a couple of good pound stores (aka dollar stores in USA). Across another street is the Shepherd's Bush Rail Station. It came in handy at least once when we needed to replace the tube with an overground because the District Line had severe delays. A short stroll from the station without having to even cross a street is Westfield Shopping Centre, perhaps the best of its type you'll find in London. It has many high-end shops but also typical and reasonably-priced ones. Furthermore, it has many options for eating and two places to pick up groceries (Waitrose and Marks & Spencer). Even if you dislike malls, it will be useful at some point during your stay.
The cottage itself is quite roomy for a London rental. Something unique is having three different eating spots that seat up to at least four people: typical dining room table, a table under the glass in the kitchen, and a picnic table outside. We utilized all three.
Negatives: The unit has a clothes washing machine but not a dryer. However, a drying rack is in a closet, and it worked well. Also, a long clothes line is set up on the back patio, but of course, you need cooperative weather. We unbelievably had nine consecutive rain less days in London, so the line worked well in our case. Also, the carpeting on the stairs and on the upper floor needs either a thorough cleaning or replacement. It will get your white socks dark, so wearing shoes or going barefoot works best once leaving the wood and tile of the main floor. The shower leaked on our first night, but the owner had it fixed by a plumber as quickly as possible and was quite apologetic. She also was kind enough to install a shower rod/curtain and provide some bigger towels when requested. She lives down a few doors and was quite accessible and helpful.
Overall, the few negatives are far outweighed by the many positives. Although this property is in zone 2, if you have a tube pass (recommend an Oyster card), you'll be anywhere in London quickly. The central line is the handiest, and you can easily transfer to any other line from it. Although you could have a few more people stay with the couches, etc., I would recommend this mostly for either three or four people. July '15
Response from the owner of the Cottage: Thank you very much for staying and I am so pleased that you had a lovely time. I appreciate all reviews. May I apologise if you had any issue with the carpets, but that they are regularly professionally cleaned and have been once again since your departure. For longer stays there is always a hoover and cleaning materials provided. Thank you all the same for your kind words, and I'm glad the weather was nice for your visit. I always like to ensure my guests are comfortable and any issues addressed swiftly and efficiently. I am delighted you found that to be the case with the shower and the towels. I do hope I can welcome you again.
“No problem with this property” (7 Derwent Yard)
Visited 19 June 2015, excellent apartment, booked on line with Vanessa who met us at the apartment and was very helpful. Found the apartment had everything we needed and more. Nice and central, Sainsbury shop and tube station on your doorstep. Windows are triple glazed so no noise, across the road is Apex Cabs which will look after you at a very fair rate for hire and helpful. Would have no problem going back to this apartment and many thanks to Vanessa for her help. June '15
“Perfect Location” (Holland Park House)
We recently stayed in this beautiful house for a week. It has everything you need as well as a lovely courtyard. Across the road is beautiful Holland Park with gorgeous gardens, squirrels come & eat nuts out of your hands and peacocks roam free. Kensington High Street is a 10 minute walk away through the park. June '15
As a family of four relocating from the USA back to London, Windermere Road house provided us with all we needed to make a stress-free transition back to life in Blighty. The house was well-equipped, stylish, very comfortable, clean and in a great location. It immediately felt like home. Northfields is a great spot for cafes, shops and access to the tube (just around the corner). The wonderful Lamas park and Warpole park are around the other corner - so the kids were happy and visited twice-daily on scooters. Vanessa, our agent, was super kind and efficient. As we were waiting for our ocean shipment to arrive at our permanent address (and the date became a moving target), Vanessa understood our predicament and was able to extend our stay which was a huge relief. We remember our time in this lovely home with great fondness. May '15
“Beautiful home, convenient location” (Holland Park House)
The house is beautiful and spacious - most of our time there was spent on the back terrace. After a long day of touring the city, it was such a nice place to relax, have some wine, and watch the sun set. The house is within walking distance of Holland Park, the tube, restaurants, Kensington Palace, grocery stores, shopping, etc. Everything you need is close by. I was not able to meet the owner, Jennifer, in person, but she was a joy to speak to over the phone. May '15
“Perfect Location” (Shepherds Bush Cottage)
Shepherds Bush Cottage is in a great location. Very handy to everything you could possibly need including money changers, ATMs the London underground and buses. Plenty of food shops and restaurants near by. The cottage was very well appointed, clean neat and tidy, with a nice outdoor area. If I go back to London I would stay again. It was living like a local. May'15
“Everything a traveler needs” (Jefferson Apartment)
We can't rate this property highly enough. It has everything a traveler needs, and a few things that are nice-to-haves that are rarely provided. Lots of electrical outlets in every room (bring plenty of adapters if you need them). Consistently strong and uninterrupted WIFI. Hooks! Does anyone else like to hang daypacks, coats, towels, and other items on hooks? We do! Plenty of closet space, with lots and lots of hangers, and plenty of shelf space. Unpack and put the luggage away! Outstanding lighting, both natural from the full-length windows, and electric-- overhead and from lamps. Thick high-quality draperies on smooth tracks block out unwanted light when sleeping in and recovering from jet lag. A dining table large enough both for dining and for spreading out maps and using computers/tablets when planning a day of sightseeing. Good quality dishes and flatware, almost-new appliances that work and have instruction manuals provided; and a full-size refrigerator. The bed was too soft for us, but other reviewers loved it. This place was as advertised, but with so much more. It is in a secure building, a supremely quiet apartment in a quiet neighborhood, which was just turning to Spring when we were there. All the cherry and apple trees were in bloom and each yard had tulips, daffodils, and irises. Wonderful parks nearby. Tip: The ATM at the Northfields Underground Station dispenses both euros and pounds. The station is not crowded, the attendants are helpful, and security is good. Reviewers have mentioned various times to get in to Central London. We timed it each trip and can say authoritatively that it takes 30 minutes to get to Piccadilly Circus from the Northfields Station. You really can get to Ealing easily from Heathrow if you don't mind the stairs at the Northfields Station and the ten minute walk to the apartment with your luggage. We took a taxi. Vanessa was waiting for us and went over everything in detail, answered questions, and left us in peace. Our stay could not have been better. We give this property our highest recommendation. April '15
“Feels like home” (7 Derwent Yard)
This was our second time staying at the apartment and like the first time we found the flat incredibly comfy, clean and with all our needs perfectly provided for. Vanessa met us on both occasions to welcome us to Derwent yard and made sure everything was to our comfort. Very nice, quiet area with tube and buses nearby, supermarket and shops too. Easy to get to and from different places. Will definitely be back!!! I totally recommend Derwent Yard to anyone travelling to London. April '15
“Convenience” (7 Derwent Yard)
Great location in Northfields - adjacent a tube station, the apartment has all necessary facilities, clean and modern. We would stay again when back in London. April '15
“Wonderful Apartment” (Harrington Apartment)
We booked this apartment as it was close to our family in Ealing and we live in the USA. As soon as we entered the apartment we knew we had made the right choice. It was exactly as described on the website and in fact in reality it was even nicer so we were extremely pleased. Our visit was for nearly two weeks so it was important we felt at home. The apartment is modern and beautifully presented and equipped with pretty much everything you have in your own home! There are several good pubs, restaurants and cafes in the immediate area as well as grocery stores so everything is covered. The tube station is a ten minute walk away or just two stops on the bus. We had a wonderful time and when we next visit the family we will definitely stay at the Harrington.
“Most Memorable” (Jefferson Apartment)
Myself and my two kids got to the apartment at Jefferson Close early. We met Vanessa already waiting for us, she had already waited longer than anticipated. She was very welcoming, and when we got into the apartment it was purely as described.!
Extremely clean.! The neighborhood very pleasant and classy. Everything one needs is by the corner and God's presence can be felt in the neighborhood as the house is adjacent to a church and I felt very much at home. Tube station is less than 5 mins walk. The neighborhood is tourist friendly as we got all the assistance we needed just for the asking,. The man who owns small grocery store at the station, assisted us with directions on how to move around and assisted in processing our Oyster card (travelcard).
My children so desired this apartment that we wished we could stay longer..
My son got so friendly with the apartment he became our GPRS ! He could hop in and out of trains with ease, because accessing ones movement is very easy from there. Heathrow is about 20 mins we didn't need a cab to the apartment!!
I will sure stay here again ! Oct '14
“Great holiday location” (Shepherds Bush Cottage)
Just back from a great weeks holiday in London. The house was located within a short walking distance from the underground and from Westfield shopping centre. Perfect location. Great facilities and perfect size for 2 adults and 2 children. Aug '14
“Wonderful location with great customer services” (Orchards House)
My husband and I took our 18 year old nephew to London and stayed for 11 nights at the Orchards Holiday Home. It is in a great location with only a short walk to the Underground station. The neighborhood was nice and quiet with grocery stores and restaurants also within a short walk. The home was clean with all the necessary amenities. We had plenty of hot water, a washer and dryer, WiFi, and everything one needs for preparing meals in a full kitchen. A car isn't necessary if you are visiting areas served by the London Underground or Train system. We needed a car at the end of our stay and had no trouble getting to the freeways or parking. We couldn't have asked for a better visit. Vanessa, the property manager, was attentive to our needs and available for questions. She and the owner went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was wonderful. Aug '14
“Great flat” (Jefferson Apartment)
The best part about this flat is the bed. It is so very comfortable. Very clean, quiet, close to the tube line. Would stay again. June '14
“Cosy Penthouse Suite in London” (Harrington Apartment)
This was the third apartment we have booked as part of a short stay in London from this provider. We were as usual very pleased. The furnishing are impeccable and high quality standard, everything is new and made up nicely. The location is also very quiet, yet it is only about 5 minute walk to the nearest supermarket and a good 10 minutes walk to the underground station " Northfields". The nearest bus-stop is right around the corner.
We would definitely book this place again. May '14
