Tried to make reservations for May 1 - 4 and received an e-mail from Owners that they had lost their lease, landlord going to remodeled into a single family home. Owners of the wonderful B & B said they are retiring... Don't know why they have not taken down their website... Took 2 days to get the "we are closed"... More

We stayed for 4 nights, really enjoyed staying here - beautiful, cozy room (we ended up in the family room - nice and roomy for the 2 of us), very clean, comfortable beds and we had great sleeps, the room was very quiet.

On a recent stay in London, the Cartref House B & B provided us with an extremely clean, efficient, and homey stay. The price was very reasonable in a city with high hotel rates. Cartref House is around the corner from the Victoria Coach (bus) Station where we arrived via National Coach bus (very clean and efficient) from Heathrow to... More

Cartref House provided us with a well sized twin room (actually double and single beds) with a spotlessly clean ensuite shower room. The room was fresh and airy and both beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was a lovely cooked English breakfast. The owners and staff were all very friendly and informative. The location was perfect for Victoria coach station... More

Convenient location to Victoria Station, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace etc. Nice upscale residential neighborhood with upscale only(?) dining choices. Derek is a good host. Good breakfasts. Room was up several flights of steep, narrow stairs. Tiny room, tinier bath, functional bed, sloping floors, clean. Adequate as a home base. Needs updating.

This B&B was recommended to us by friends who have stayed there several times over the years. We were not disappointed. Friendly, funny, and helpful proprietors. Comfy rooms with everything we needed and nothing more. (Family of four stayed in two rooms with twin beds.) Competitive rate for the central London location, clean comfy rooms, and hearty breakfast.

The owners of the Cartref house was amazing. They were so nice with offering information, advice, and recommendations for everything from tourist spots, to dining and shopping. The breakfasts were good and the room was good. The bathroom was a little on the small side, but that seems to be very typical of central london as space is a valuable... More

I travel a lot and am very open-minded. I can accept that sometimes errors are made and I can usually work around them. However, I am quite disappointed about my experience with the Cartref House...not just about what happened, but about what didn't happen afterwards. Interestingly enough, upon reading some of the reviews on here, another couple had the SAME... More

Staying in Belgravia

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.

“Rooms are on three different floors; the rooms with windows overlooking the backyard are a bit quieter, especially if you leave the window open at night.”
