Full review of room 8 - small but comfortable, affordable, convenient but NO AIRCON I stayed in this hotel for five nights in September of 2023. Overall, I had a very nice stay. The location is nice because there are a lot of dining and shopping options nearby, but it is not an area heavily traveled by tourists. It felt very local, and I didn't feel particularly unsafe even when walking late at night. The train station is an easy walk away, but you will have to make a transfer to get to most of the touristy areas of town. I didn't find this to be cumbersome, but it does add a few extra minutes to your commute. The hotel was always quiet, and Tony was extremely friendly and responsive. It felt like I'd met a new local friend who could help me with anything I'd need. I stayed in room 8 on the third floor. I didn't see any specific review of this room, so I'm going to try to give as much specific info as I can. The room is pretty small, but it was comfortable and I found it adequate as a single traveler. There is a queen sized bed, and there is a small table with a chair between the door and the bed. The bathroom has a shower stall with a sink next to it, but it is genuinely tiny, and I couldn’t get to the sink without turning sideways and squeezing between the shower and the wall. I also wasn't able to dry off without opening the bathroom door since it was so small, so this may be an issue depending on who you're travelling with. The toilet was in the opposite corner of the room in its own separate (very small) room. There was a decent sized closet built in one corner and the windows spanned basically the whole width of the wall. There is a fan on a ledge by the side of the bed opposite the door, and a TV hangs on the wall with the windows. This would be a very tight squeeze for two people due to having no place to store luggage. I would love to see the hotel replace the bed frame in this room with one that is tall enough to store luggage underneath so it could free up some floor space. Overall I had no issue with the size of the room, but I wanted to be detailed about it since it may be a deal breaker for people who need more space. The rest of the hotel was in good shape, and was clean and inviting. You have access to two kitchen and lounge areas, including access to refrigerators and cooking equipment. The front door always felt securely locked. There is no elevator/lift, but I didn't find the climb to the third floor to be cumbersome with average mobility. There was also great communication with Tony and his father, either by phone or by online message when they needed to update me on anything. This hotel does not have any air conditioning. Tony explained that they were not allowed to add it, so this is not a fault of the owners. However, even when it was in the 60sF outside, the room was uncomfortably warm inside. I had to sleep with the fan on and windows open every night, and even then there wasn't much of a breeze to cool it down. This also caused me to hear road noise early in the morning. Lack of air is the only reason I'd give four stars instead of five because I would not recommend staying here during the warmer months of the year. Overall, I would 100% stay here again if I was traveling at a time with cool or cold weather since the price was very reasonable, the room was comfortable, the location was relatively convenient, and the service was top notch. However, I would not stay here during the summer due to the lack of air conditioning.

Tutto perfetto e pulito: consigliatissimo Molto soddisfatta della camera singola n. 6 al 2° piano (ci sono solo le scale, 33 gradini) con bagno interno completo (manca l'aria condizionata, ma nonostante il caldo dei primi giorni, bastava lasciare la finestra aperta e non si avevano problemi). Sono fornite le lenzuola, asciugamani, bagnoschiuma e sapone liquido per le mani. A disposizione per gli ospiti ci sono 2 cucine complete (stoviglie, microonde, frigo, forno, lavello, sapone etc) di cui una con vista sul giardino. La stazione dei treni Clapham Junction dista a piedi nemmeno 5 minuti, da dove partono anche il bus n. 345 diretto al Natural History Museum e il n. 344 per lo Sky Garden. Mentre le fermate del bus n. 87 (diretto a Westminister) e n. 77 (diretto a Waterloo Station) sono a 1 minuto dalla guest house. I treni portano direttamente a Victoria Station in una 15ina di minuti. comodo anche se si vuole andare a Salisbury (Stonehenge) oppure a Eastbourne (sono diretti) o Brighton. Intorno alla Guest House ci sono molti locali: pizzerie, pubs, cafè, tantissimi supermercati uno attaccato all'altro e varie attività commerciali: ma la strada comunque è molto silenziosa specialmente di notte. Il signor Tony mi ha accolto calorosamente ed è venuto incontro a tutte le mie (piccole) richieste: gentilissimo, cordiale e simpatico. Sono stata benissimo, come a casa. consiglio la Guest House The Lavander sia per la posizione (zona 2), che per la pulizia che per l'accoglienza del proprietario sig. Tony. grazie di tutto

Perfect place to stay and explore London at your own pace. I loved the stay at this guesthouse. This was my first trip to London with my girlfriend and we were happy that we chose this place for a week's stay. Located in a quiet neighborhood, well connected via Bus and Train to all parts of the city. The rooms are cleaned and well maintained. Tony and Lisa were wonderful hosts. Even before I boarded my flight from Germany, Tony already informed me about the transport situation in London and provided alternate option to reach the guesthouse easily. Check-in and check-out was very convenient. I will definitely choose this as my place for any future visits to London. Thank you again and I absolutely recommend this place.

Great guest house just off Lavender Hill From the moment l booked communication with Tony, the owner, was friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is delightful and the facilities are excellent with two dining areas and an outdoor space that's very relaxing. The room was spacious clean and had everything one needs. TV tea making bathroom and balcony. I highly recommend this family run business. 10/10

Excellent stay at the Lavender Guest House A great place to stay if you are looking for affordable lodging in London whilst being not too far from Central London. Tony is a fantastic manager and was excellent with communication and answering any questions I had (even before I officially checked in). I stayed in a single room, so it was a little on the compact side, but considering that I was mostly just using the room to sleep at night, it fit my needs. There is an indoor kitchen/outdoor dining common area where you can eat food you bring back. No breakfast is served, but you get a discount for your meals at a nearby breakfast place called Jack's at the Junction. The guesthouse is a 5-10 minute walk to the Clapham Junction train station which you can use to take a 10 minute train ride to either the Victoria or Waterloo stations to Central London (the trains run until midnight I believe). Highly recommend staying here.

Perfect location for catching up with friends at short notice. The room was small but clean and comfortable with plenty of storage. It was quiet for a great night sleep and the service was outstanding - the team were so willing to help.

What a find! I have been to many hotels in the UK and abroad and this will definitely be one of the best. For a 3 star hotel they have really put in the effort and thought about everything. I was pleasantly surprised that they have two dining rooms where you can sit eat which also has a kitchen area where you can use the microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge. All plates and cutlery provided. Tony is an excellent host, very friendly and accommodating. He even upgraded my room for free due to a last minute cancellation and didn't charge the extra charge for my partner coming to stay on the second night. The place is very clean and organised, they even have a deal with the local cafe that you can get 15% off your breakfast! Very convenient location close to supermarkets, shops and bars as well as Clapham junction station all very close by. Very well priced for the location and for what you get for your money. Would definitely visit again and recommend.

Good luck to book this facility. Great location for our needs, room was very comfortable, and the guest dining rooms, both inside and by the outside garden area was very well equipped with refrigerator, microwave, coffee, and TV. As you will notice from prior reviews, Tony and Lisa are so attentive and helpful to all their guests, having come from a hotelier background.

Great value for money. Tony is very friendly and it’s easy to reach Central London. The rooms are small but very clean. I think the sink was a bit too small.

We can not recommend this place enough! My best friend and I stayed here for the London Marathon and we had the best accommodation out of everyone we traveled with! The hosts, Lisa and Tony, are absolute gems. They are the sweetest and both are super responsive and attentive. We were able to check in early, leave luggage with them after check out, and we never had any issues whatsoever with regards to communication. We had room #5 with the private bathroom and the room was so cute and clean! The bathroom was really nice as well. There is a separate, shared kitchen/dining room that is also well maintained. It was everything we needed at a reasonable price. The location is great - being close to the 77/87 bus and Clapham Junction made it possible to get pretty much anywhere we wanted in and around downtown London in less than 45 minutes. Plus, the general location is so nice with restaurants, shopping, bars, and The Grand. There was never a moment either of us didn't feel safe. I plan on staying here again if I come back to London. We wouldn't change a thing and you won't regret staying here!

Lots of other reviewers mention the small rooms, so you know that before booking and if you need more space, look somewhere else. But for me and my partner, a room is just for sleeping and washing, and we don't ask for much more. We opted for room 8 as it has it's own ensuite bathroom, but some rooms have their bathrooms next door and that would have been fine as well. The rooms are really fresh and clean. The carpet on the floor is nice and warm, no visible stains, no buildup of dust. You can tell it's being kept tidy on a daily base, the whole house smells fine, not like an old dusty hotel. Same goes for the bathroom. The toilet was a bit funny as from the outside it looked like it was built into an old closet and had no lock (no problem if you travel alone or with your romantic partner in my opion), but it was fully tiled and maintained. Oh and the towels are soft and smell really nice! I don't know what detergent they use, but please keep using it because drying my face in the morning was an odd pleasure. Tony and his sister run the place together and are quite accommodating to their guests. Our flight was a bit delayed and the underground we needed got suspended for the day, so we arrived 2hrs after our scheduled check in, but we kept them up to date in the chat and they were very welcoming once we arrived. There's a shared room downstairs outside in the garden which hosts a small kitchen with a fridge, two tables and some chairs where you can hang out for some reading, coffee or -in our case- make ourselves a small breakfast that we got from Asda supermarket. The place is located a bit south from the city center, but it offers pretty much endless public transport, both the underground (Clapham Junction) or multiple busstops are available at walking distance. Shops, supermarktes and multiple restaurants/(fast)food chains are plenty so you shouldn't go hungry at any time of the day. There's even some shops like Boots and TKmaxx if you need anything else. You can be in the city center within 30mins using any form of public transport. The underground is faster, but a bus fare is very low and gives the option for some sight seeing as well. For London's average hotel price, I would chose Lavender Guest house again in the future. Being out in the city all day, we would not use any of the more luxurious facilities bigger hotels have to offer, and it's nice having a more quiet place where you can retract from the city buzz.

NOISE: Between two side roads, this is possibly the quietest place to stay in London. If that’s especially important to you, ask for Room 3, which is small but has no adjacent or above-floor rooms around it, and opens up to the back courtyard. SERVICE: Everything was great. The Internet dropped out for a day in the area because of a lightning strike and they actually credited us $10 for the brief outage…something I wish more places would do. They were also very communicative. LOCATION: 5-10 min walk from a huge railway station so it’s very convenient. Also, we found out our London tour guide lives here, and was very impressed that we were staying in the area. Not huge for tourists but some of the best food in town, and a real good part of the city. Also, make sure to go to Jack’s. Extremely cheap and friendly place to eat, especially with the 15% discount. LAUNDRY: This was a very, very minor downside. If you plan on doing laundry there are 1-2 places close by but they don’t accept credit cards for some reason (I know other places definitely do). So, you can either bring cash (annoying becuse this is probably the only time you need cash on your trip) or else pay a few GBP extra and have them do your laundry for you…but it’s a bit pricy. OTHER: There are also indoor and outdoor kitchens and dining areas you can go to to eat/cook (helpful if your room is small like ours). Overall, great value, great place, would definitely stay again.

This is our extra bedroom for when guests come to London. This isn’t a luxury hotel, but really, who needs to spend all their money in a luxury hotel? If you want to save your budget for the everything else Clapham has to offer, I strongly recommend this place. Clean rooms, owners who are fully invested in the business and care about their customers.
