A home away from home in Paddington
We had a wonderful stay at Fred and Iris's apartment in Paddington with our 3 children (15, 14 and 10). The apartment is in a great location only a 5 minute walk to Paddington station. It is located within walking distance of restaurants, Notting Hill, Little Venice and Kensington Palace and gardens. Fred and Iris are wonderful hosts - and even though they were away at the time we were welcomed personally by a friend, we were given tips about local supermarkets, restaurants and public transport. The kitchen was well stocked with all you need and for us Australians it even had Vegemite! Fred and Iris had arranged for fresh eggs, butter, juice and milk in the fridge, along with a loaf of fresh bread. We felt like we were at home. Our children loved the apartment. There is loads to do close by and we highly recommend going to Camden Markets and getting the water taxi(boat) back to Little Venice - beautiful! When leaving it was very simple to walk up with our luggage and get the Heathrow Express from Paddington Station - only 15 minutes and a tip to those travelling with children - under 15 are free, so spend the extra few pounds and get first class tickets for the adults as the carriage is not crowded and you will all get seats. We loved our week in London and would stay at Fred and Iris place again. Thank you Fred and Iris for making our stay so memorable. Joanne (Sydney Australia)
Caring hosts. Well-located flat.
Iris and Fred are warm and caring hosts, who go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. The apartment is comfortable for five and is well-appointed. The only thing to be aware of is that the en-suite bathroom connected to the master bedroom is a 'shower room,' with no inner walls, so it is very wet and steamy for the second person in.
The location of the apartment is close to everything, but not right in a neighborhood so expect to take short walks for meals, groceries, etc.
The very best experience!
We loved every single moment from our recent trip. Fred and Iris are wonderful hosts and have thought of everything you could possibly need while on holiday. They answered all of my questions in a timely manner before our visit and were very responsive during our visit. The flat was beyond amazing! The kitchen, baths, bedrooms and every part of the house are fully stocked. Sparkling clean, beautifully decorated, spacious, trendy and so very comfortable. The patio area is perfect to enjoy some fresh air and a cup of coffee/tea. The location is easy walking distance to Paddington Station. Fred was kind enough to meet us at the station after our long flight and helped us with our luggage. On the way home, he detailed the neighborhood and recommended local restaurants. When we arrived at the flat, he had a large map and reviewed all of the surrounding areas to make sure we knew exactly how to maneuver around the city. This was so helpful!! Iris was so lovely as we chatted about our week's agenda. Bayswater, Notting Hill and Queensway are very close and offer many shopping and dining options. It is a very easy walk to Hyde Park and Kensington Palace. We were a family of four (3 adults, 1 child) and felt completely safe. The flat is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city center which made for a very relaxing holiday. We would 100% recommend this flat and Fred and Iris to our other friends and family. We hope to return in the near future. Thank you Fred and Iris!!
Fantastic Apartment & Location with great hosts!
Our family of 5 recently stayed at Fred and Iris' apartment for 6 nights. Right throughout the process (from pre booking to checkout and beyond i.e. I left something behind!) Fred was very accommodating, helpful and easy to deal with. The apartment is well maintained and extremely well located - walk to key tourist spots like Hyde Park, Oxford St, Lords/Abbey Rd, Harrods, Museums (anywhere really) or catch a Bus or Tube which are both close by. The apartment itself is large and very well equipped......even down to the availability of Oyster Cards (top up when you leave) Pay TV and a good CD collection! I could go on and on but the other reviews also cover it. We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended to friends. Thanks Fred and Iris!
The Perfect Base For Touring London
What a fabulous week we had in this wonderful flat that provides the perfect balance between nearby transportation with ease to and from Heathrow and access to all London has to offer as well as local conveniences of groceries and restaurants.
Fred and Iris are supreme hosts, making you feel like you are visiting family. Fred met us at the airport and provided a valuable summary of the area on the short walk to the flat. Once we arrived at the rental, we found modern and very well equipped accommodations with the added touch of some much appreciated staples provide by Fred and Iris.
We hope to return to London in the near future and we will definitely be looking up Fred and Iris in hope of returning to their grand home in Paddington.
Great flat for our family "Girl Trip"
The flat was just perfect for our family "Girl Trip". There were 5 of us - grandmother, 2 daughters, 2 teen granddaughters. It was just as represented on the website and was immaculately clean. Fred and Iris were lovely hosts and provided everything we needed. The location was extremely convenient. All in all it exceeded expectations and I would definitely recommend it to friends.
