Our Melbourne family enjoyed our stay at The Gloucester enormously. It was comfortable and roomy and we enjoyed the open window summer breezes and the outlook over the beautiful garden square. Fans were provided because of the predicted high temperatures. A gorgeous week in sunny London!

We loved this location. It felt safe and our kids were able to explore the area without adults with no issue (we do not live in a city, so this is not something they are used to). The apartment was well furnished and spotless. Everything was comfortable. I only wish they has a better system for checking in that did not require connecting with a person to get in. Travel schedules and traffic in London are unpredictable and that added stress to the travel. Otherwise, we loved it and would stay there again.
Great location with some nice restaurants and shops close by and a 10 minute walk to the tube which made it easy to get to all the city attractions. You are also a short walk to Hyde park which is really nice. My wife and I were able to stay in the condo comfortably with 4 kids. The host also provided a lot of nice information about the city and potential babysitting and transportation options. There is a bar next door but this did not seem to be an issue as the owner kept people inside after 9:00 pm and there didn't seem to be a lot of noise at night coming from the bar. There is one air-conditioning unit in the upstairs master bedroom that kept the upstairs relatively cool at night.

This was a great location for my family. Having two teenage kids, I appreciated how close it was to restaurants and museums. They were able to explore on their own. It is close to trains, bus line, and lots of shops and cafes. The only downside to the apt is that it can feel a little cold even in summer due to its ground-level location. There is a heater available. I would imagine it is pretty cold in winter months. Very beautiful and well decorated apartment.

This is a beautiful and quiet apartment with great access to public transport. The ceilings in the living room are jaw dropping - it's difficult to remember you are in central London with them! It feels like you are sitting in a stately home - they are so high with beautiful mouldings. Triple French windows out to the front balcony are just lovely. London can get very hot in the summer, but we opened up the French doors in the living room and then in the kitchen, and there was a refreshing breeze coming right through the apartment. The kitchen is well appointed and spacious. The master bed was wonderfully comfortable with lovely views over a communal garden. The only suggestion I would make (meant as constructive criticism!) would be that a chest of drawers in both bedrooms would be helpful for better clothes storage. A wonderful stay and we'd love to return, thank you.

Our family of 7 stayed here for six nights. Great location near restaurants and shopping and an easy walk to the tube. London was having a heat wave though and it got very warm at night. There is no AC (which is typical for most homes in the UK). We did use the mobile AC unit, which helped to cool the master bedroom, but the other bedrooms remained pretty warm. We also had to plan for use of the one shower, as most in our group preferred showers over baths. In general, we had a very pleasant stay and had everything we needed.

You won’t find another residence quite like this - anywhere. Designed by the owner (an internationally renowned interiors guru who I now want to help with my homes), the inspired combination of contemporary and quirky fabrics with classical styling, prized art and antique furniture makes this a unique and very special place. The art of a great night’s sleep is a given - with sumptuous hand-made mattresses, down pillows and the softest Egyptian linen. And silence. This inside / outside space is impossibly quiet with views across pretty residential gardens. so safe, I lived with the doors open. Loved all the thoughtful home touches and comforts that make every stay a pleasure. There’s state of the art lighting, an AV system that beats my own, sub-zero appliances and even a La Conue hob. Didn’t bother cooking - it took us just a minute’s walk through a lovely tree lined neighbourhood to buy breakfast from Café Phillies. No room service - who cares when the choice of local restaurants is so great. Kensington High Street and Holland Park are on the doorstep and Kensington Gardens leading into Hyde Park is just minutes away. This is a complete treat of a London pad and way more personal and private than a hotel.
Our visit was all the more perfect due to this stunning flat! My husband and I have wanted years to get to London again and Phillimore Gardens is such a great location. The support from London Perfect was much appreciated! I wandered the spaces here admiring the decor - so much thought about detail and ambience! The Chelsea Flower Show with a champagne tea at the Dorchester was quite stimulating to the senses. Dinners at The Belvedere in Holland Park were our favorites. We certainly hope to return again! For now, it's off to the Lake District and Edinburgh for more adventures!

We had the most wonderful time at your beautiful home. In fact - we do not want to leave. This really felt like our home away from home. The apartment is just beautiful with such thought and time put into every detail!! Especially loved all of the fabulous art and the different textures on the walls. The system to adjust the lighting in each room was fabulous! The shower was especially divine and I plan to copy it at home during our upcoming guest bath renovation!! We love the area so much!! The restaurants, shops and convenience were wonderful! We will be back!!

Fantastic Airbnb, we stayed with our toddler and it was perfect for us. Quiet, clean, and well decorated. Great location for getting all over London. And since it's below ground it was really cool, which was especially nice during the heat. Would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful apartment. We felt very at home. Perfect spaces for us. Would definitely rent again when next in London.
Sharon Shanley, The Walton
Gordon is a great apartment with a well-arranged use of space and with everything you need in order to feel right at home in the wonderful city of London. A surplus is it's location in a great neighborhood where you'll find fun shops, cafes and historical sights worth exploring. Our stay went flying by too quickly! Thank-you Perfect London!
Wonderful apartment. Bright, beautiful and tidy in a great location accesible to public transport, many shops and beautiful Kensington Park. Our family of five felt right at home at Austen and will definitely want to come back when visiting London. We enjoyed our stay very much. Time flew by! Thank-you to the London Perfect Team!
Paula and Felipe G, Chile
Such a wonderful stay, The unit has a gorgeous view from both bedrooms of the park, and the living area has a nice and open view of the church. Awesome location, my favorite neighborhood. London Perfect staff was excellent to work with, we were there for a month. Cleanings were good. Would love to stay again.

We loved Phillimore! Such a beautiful flat - and in a great location. London Perfect - Thank you for your role in making this an amazing London holiday! We have stayed before with Paris Perfect - once again your company is the best! - a fabulous property and great support. A 10/10!!
PS. The notes and suggestions from the owner were very kind and a lovely touch - we really appreciated the thoughfulness.

Gorgeous house, perfectly located for the first time we brought our kids over to London. The accomodation was exactly as advertised & as shown in the photos. There were little extra touches everywhere that ensured we had everything we could have wanted. The hosts were very helpful, efficient & responsive. Their suggested transfer service from Heathrow made our arrival even easier. Would highly recommend!

Very spacious flat. Perfect for our multi generational visit to London. Fully outfitted kitchen, lots of games to entertain all. The half bath had a flushing lever that was out of the wall, so that toilet was unusable. The bath/shower combo in two of the bathrooms have no shower curtains, so lots of spilled water when showering. Excellent location in Kensington. Minutes from Gloucester Road Underground station. Also close to Waitrose, Oddbins, and Whole Foods.

I had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful and well-equipped Belgravia flat with my two teenage sons. We started each day walking to a neighborhood breakfast spot and then to nearby Victoria Station. After a full day of sightseeing, we each had our own comfortable space and privacy to recharge. Thank you, London Perfect! Amazing!!
