I spent a week at Caroline Main's house in Notting Hill. I was visiting London with my friend and we make a point of always staying interesting places when we travel together. Boutique style. And at places where we like to hang out and relax when we are not sightseeing. And preferably somewhere where we can feel almost local. The... More

My week was so comfortable in a lovely spacious & spotless room with large ensuite bathroom. It's proximity to Portobello Road with its fantastic restaurants & weekend markets is a huge plus. Caroline was the perfect host - considerate, friendly and helpful. Barb B

In November, my husband and I spent a week in London at Caroline Main’s Main House in Notting Hill. The Main House is a handsome stand out from all the other surrounding white washed porticos along Colville Rd. I joked about this with Caroline, its vibrant and animated owner. We stayed on the third level and found our suite spacious,... More

A well kept Victorian house, in the trendy residential area of Portobello Rd. It is like being a private guest in a 100+yrs old house, thanks to the hospitality of the owner Mrs Main, who is really taking care of your comfort and will help you choosing cute and healthy restaurants nearby. Well organized for station/airport transport. Top value for... More

Like staying with a fab friend who happens to live in the best part of town. The owners attention to detail with the room is unequalled and the desire to help point you in the direction of great local services and attractions unparalleled. Like a home away from home but with better linen.

My daughter and I recently stayed at The Main House for a week and thought it was great! We stayed on the top floor which was like a private apartment. The bedroom and sitting room were quite spacious and comfortable. The bathroom while small, was manageable and recently updated. The vintage property is well maintained, the rooms were clean, nicely... More

We recently spent 9 days at The Main House. What a treat - everything exceeded our expectations. Caroline was a dream host, full of suggestions for things to do in the area. Our rooms were beautifully spacious, tastefully decorated and well appointed. A luxurious bed and linens, a lovely lounge area for reading and relaxing, and large bathroom.. We felt... More

Quirky and elegant, the Main House reflects the personality of its owner, Caroline. Decorated with treasures from Portabello Rd and travels abroad, it has the warmth of the family home it is and offers an experience more unique than that of more slick hotels. Doors may not close or lock and the lovely aged floor boards creak, the little tv... More

We stayed here for nine nights, arriving October 13, 2015. The owner, Caroline, is very helpful and efficient with the reservations, and once there, she makes it her responsibility for you to have a good stay in London. Her Victorian house is two blocks from Portobello market, which is a fun street market on Fridays and Saturdays. Bus # 23... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
