Our story

In a beautiful tree-lined street our late Victorian house has been tastefully restored in keeping with its original character. Our two guest rooms have been decorated using natural materials, each room individually designed to create a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing environment that prioritises your own needs and personal comfort.

Each room has tea-and-coffee-making facilities, bathrobe and slippers, TV, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, shampoo and towels. The sheets are 100% Egyptian cotton and the duvets and pillows are filled with fluffy goose down. A washing machine and dryer are available on request. We now provide continental breakfast in the room.

From Finsbury Park, follow the signs for busses at Wells Terrace. From there bus W3 runs every 5-7 minutes to Mountview Road. A voice in the bus will announce your stop for Mountview Road. When you get off the bus walk back on yourself and turn right into Mountview Road (don’t cross the road) and look for number 31.
