Excellent. Obviously a great deal of thought has gone into providing a home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay. Faultless from start to finish. The apartment is exactly as described in the website - even better in fact. So convenient for the O2 arena using the river bus service. So comfortable and welcoming with one or two thoughtful personal touches that really made it even more special. The facilities on site around the Royal Arsenal Riverside complex are great - from the mini-supermarkets to the pubs and restaurants to the concierge and the other colourful local shops and markets are just a short walk away.Would definitely like to use the apartment again for another visit.

Owner's Response: Thankyou so much for your great review.We are very pleased that our apartment lived up to your expectations and that you found the local facilities to be good as well. The convenience of the Thames Clipper for getting to the O2 is definitely a good reason to stay at the Royal Arsenal! We hope to be able to accommodate you again should you return to London. Melanie and Michael.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment during our visit to the World Athletics Championships at the Olympic Park. Travelling to Stratford on the DLR was easy with regular trains and a short walk between the station and the flat.

The Royal Arsenal area is a nice mix of modern facilities in historic buildings and I felt very safe there which was reassuring with small children. It was also very quiet around the building, overlooking a nice green area with a playground whilst also having shops and smart pubs within walking distance.

We also enjoyed travelling into London via the Thames Clipper on the weekend to watch the marathon by Tower Bridge. The riverside walk also gave great views.

In the apartment itself we had everything we needed and more. We made good use of all of the facilities including the washing machine, dishwasher and games/dvds for the children.

The kitchen had everything we needed and it was nice to find some cold drinks and milk in the fridge on arrival - thank you.

Before coming, I was a little concerned that over 10 days, we might get a little cramped with 6 of us, but this was not a problem. There was plenty of room and the futon was easy to fold each morning.

On arrival, we did find the apartment very hot and we needed to open up some windows. Upstairs was warmer and we were glad to find fans in each bedroom which we used each night.

Before and after our stay, the owners were very quick to communicate and had no problems at all. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to others and would consider staying here again.

A great apartment - well equipped with everything we needed. Good location for travel to central London and the Royal Arsenal was a great complex with everything we needed. The owners were very helpful and a flexible Sunday departure was much appreciated.

Fantastic Flat in a Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

There are many reasons to love this flat: the owners' responsiveness and attention to detail, the location, and the flat itself.

First, Michael and Melanie are great owners. They respond to inquiries quickly and provide seamless instructions on how to check in and check out. We promptly received the refund for our security deposit after checking out and had no problems of any kind during the booking and during our stay. Michael and Melanie have taken great care of the property and did everything to ensure that we had an enjoyable stay.

Second, the flat's location is tremendous. The complex in which the flat is located is a former royal arsenal that teems with history. My family and I enjoyed walking the grounds and learning about the complex's past (there's a Wikipedia page on Royal Arsenal, Woolwich that provides great background). As Michael and Melanie posted, rapid transit is in very close proximity to the flat. We used both the light rail and the Thames Clipper, walking to both quite easily. The Thames Clipper pier is no more than 3-4 minutes right out the front door and is a great way to see some of London's most famous sights. And there are two grocers within a short walk, as well as an ATM and several restaurants.

Finally, the flat is beautiful, spacious, and clean. There was room for our family of five to stay comfortably. We even had a movie night and cooked in a couple of times while there.

We would recommend this flat for just about anyone, but our kids (ages 15, 13, and 10) particularly enjoyed our stay at Michael and Melanie's beautiful home. If we return to London, I would not have any pause in staying again. We were able to enjoy all parts of London and this flat truly enhanced the experience for us.

Great location, home and hosts

  • 5 of 5

The home worked well for our family of 6 and the easy access to the transportation was great to get into downtown London. We appreciated having the onsite Tesco to pick up groceries for meals. Michael answered all our questions prior to and during our trip very promptly. Thank you for the opportunity to stay here!

A perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience in renting an apartment instead of booking a hotel. Michael and Melanie made it a fantastic experience from start to finish. They made it so easy and walked us through each step, down to letting us know that they made an additional spot for one of our little once to make sure we had enough beds for every one.

The apartment is every bit as cute as the pictures show, everything we needed to make our stay great was there. What the pictures don't show you is how awesome the area is in which the apartment is a part of. Coming home from a day of site seeing and the hustle and bustle of a big city to a quiet neighborhood that has everything you want, restaurants, grocery store, and much more was simply fantastic. We highly recommend this spot to anyone who is planing a stay in London, super easy to get to down town from there as well.

Once again thank you Michael and Melanie so much for sharing your place with us it was great!!
