Large double room in period house overlooking a big park in central London. Private bathroom with shared access through bedroom to washing machine.
Near tube, overground and bus to city, West End, Shoreditch and walking distance to Greenwich. Friendly and experienced host.
House is spacious & renovated, directly facing 7ha Deptford Park: modern kitchen, living room with big TV, central heating throughout. Views from house of park & Canary Wharf. Also a secluded grassy back yard with decking and BBQ.
The room is big (~3x5m) and quiet and has its own en-suite bathroom, big bed, shelves & hanging (note: shared access to washing machine through the room).
Note - the washing machine for the house is in the en-suite bathroom for this room. Although no one will access your room without your permission, we ask that you permit other guests to use the washing when they ask you. Thanks.
There are other rooms available too if you need a bigger party of people to stay than two (the room itself has a double bed and accommodates two, but there are other rooms that may be available for an extra charge or we can arrange an extra mattress for the additional person rate). The ground floor room with big TV may be available as a living room if not accommodating other guests.
Interaction with guests
We'll check you in and give you tips on the local area. I'm knowledgeable of local history and restaurants cafes etc. My partner works from home so is around most of the time and I am always reachable by phone.
Other things to note
We may provide you an alternative room of comparable size in some circumstances. We will discuss this with you at or before check-in.
Each room has a double bed and we charge the same for 1 or 2 people. Additional people are at the half room rate if in the same room - so f you book for 3 people (or odd numbers), you can either pay a single person rate with the third person in the room on a futon mattress, or pay the room rate for them to have their own room. Bookings for 4 would usually be across 2 rooms. We have access to 7 rooms in total in two adjoining houses so if any rooms are listed as unavailable or you have a larger group we may be able to accommodate you. Because of this also, 'Instant Book' bookings are only valid for up to three people - more requires us to confirm availability of other rooms.
Please advise us ahead of time when you will arrive so we can receive you. If we cannot be home then for any reason then we will give you a key. Please have your phone on and charged on the day so that we can ring each other if need be. If you arrive during changeover/cleaning (usually mid morning) you will be welcome to leave your bags but may need to return later when your room is ready.
There are very few rules - other than to remember it's someone's actual home rather than a hotel.
No smoking - and smokers please smoke across the street rather than in front of the house (the neighbours complain)
