We stayed in three different rooms for four weeks in july '10. Mark and his father have managed to make a centrally located accomodation that feels like home. I would recommend this place to anyone. Very good value! Free wifi, but parking is rather expensive (public).

Me and my partner stayed for a few days last october we went up for a fan expo at earls court. The accommodation was immaculate so clean, fresh and modern.

We stayed at the Castletown Apartments for 5 nights at the start of a month in England and for 3 nights at the end. The location is good, just 200 metres from West Kensington tube (on the District line) and 500 metres from Barrons Court (on the Piccadilly line, which comes directly from Heathrow). It is a 15-20 minute ride...

As an alternative to a hotel we stayed in the small basement apartment here in May. It is very close to two tube stations (West Kensington being about 2mins away) and a main road with a decent selection of supermarkets. The room was well kitted out given its size and with fresh apples and water in the fridge which I...

Found Castletown via Tripadvisor and all emails before my stay where handled with quickly. I booked the Charville studio, which was lovely, my only negative was that it was a bit noisy but then again I am a light sleeper and armed with earplugs I slept really well because I loved the bed. You can't beat the location, it's in...

We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment and then a three-bedroom apartment at Castletown House. The price for a whole apartment in London is amazing! The location is very convenient. It's just a few minutes walk to either the West Kensington or Barons Court tube stops. It took all of 10 minutes on the tube to get to the major tourist...

Nothing fancy just the right accommodation for our needs. 9 days exploring London only 3 minutes to the local Tube station. We liked providing for our own dietary needs without having to make special orders. Making lunches to have during the day kept expenses down. We managed to find the best and cheapest coffee in London at Christine's. Ask Mark...

Stayed at 51 Barton Court for 4 nights with our family of 5 (3 teenage children) and the stay was fantastic. Mia Marsh went out of her way to make sure the flat was ready and we were accomodated. She was there when we arrived and made sure we knew what to do and where to go. The flat was...

All communication to arrange the accommodation was done professionally and Mark welcomed us and gave us all the information we required for a great stay in London. Fairly priced for London and close to supermarkets, pubs and the tube. Was an ideal base for our few days in London

First, the room was not clean. There was a dirty towel hanging in the bathroom, and water and dirty shoe prints on the floor. The windows and door sills were covered in dust and there were stains on the walls and furniture. By American standards, this was comparable to a subpar Motel 6. Also, be aware that "self-catering" doesn't just...
