Excellent guest house with modern facilities, & very good breakfast with plenty of choice. Quiet location & close to Southgate tube. Breda is a friendly host & will cater for any needs or requests throughout your stay. Free secure parking a bonus. Would recommend.

Stayed here for 1 night whilst in the area on business. From the booking to the moment I left I could not fault it! Breda was so welcoming. The room lovely and fresh, bed very comfortable, bedsheets smelled fresh and clean, the bathroom ample size and breakfast was delicious. I'll be back when next in the area! Don't hesitate to...

My parents, my partner and I had two excellent nights at The Oaks Guest House. The rooms were quiet, clean and comfortable (hardwood floors and tasteful furnishings), the breakfast was delicious (fresh fruit salad, toast and scrambled eggs) and the welcome from the owner, Breda, was warm and friendly. Breda kindly accommodated for a gluten-free diet without any fuss, providing... More

A wonderful and affordable place to stay in London, if you plan on staying long that is the place to go. The peace and quality of the service invites you to request an extension. The place is deep in the Southgate area.

My wife and I stayed in Room 3 from 3/11/15 to 5/11/15 inc. The hostess, Breda, was extremely pleasant and helpful. The Guest House is situated behind an electric gate, which was very reassuring. The room, and all the public areas, were very clean indeed. Our room was great, with a large bathroom. Everything worked perfectly. Breakfast was extremely varied... More

I just returned from a 2-night stay at The Oaks and I was absolutely delighted with my time there. Breda and her staff are an absolute delight and couldn't do enough for me. The location is really good and it took me just under 40 minutes to get right into the centre of town door-to-door, which was perfect. My room... More

My friends and I stayed here for a total of 10 days in October 2015. Breda and her staff were beyond accommodating.

Stayed here at the beginning of a 2 month UK trip and ended up cancelling the "posh" hotel in South Ken at the end of the trip so that we could stay here again before flying back. The tube is so easy and quicker than ever. Remember to get a visitor Oyster card BEFORE you go
