Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed the Clerkenwell flat in London. David is a great communicator, helpful in making arrangements, and Tracey is very nice and flexible about check-in and check-out. The apartment is secure, spacious, and clean, the furniture comfortable and tasteful in leather and glass, and the kitchen and bath extremely nice and well-equipped--all better than pictured or expected. The view out the full-sized double windows in the living room is entertaining, with lively and friendly neighborhood activity. A very good grocery store is a half-block away, the bus stop is a block, good restaurants and food trucks abound, and people are friendly. The location is perfect, allowing for walking (about 15 minutes to walk to the Thames Blackfriars Bridge), riding the bus (63 is great for north-south and 55 east-west), and using the Tube from a couple of nearby stations, Farringdon or Chancery. Before and after running around town to museums, parks, and plays, the flat was an oasis. We loved it and hope to return.

A hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 3 and found this Flat to be just perfect for what we needed in Good Old London . Easy to get from Heathrow Airport to the front door of the flat. We used the tube and bus system to travel all through the city with ease and at the end of each day the Pool and Sauna was the perfect ending to relax and prepare for the next days adventures. The beds were very comfortable nice kitchen and even had some spices for our use, nice touch. there are a lot of eatery places close by and groceries less than a block away. Tomas the man in-charge was so helpful with how to get around and when the toilet paper got low he ran out to the store and had it back to us in less than a half hour. Not fancy but had everything you needed. Internet service was good. Very close to Farringdon tube station. We would stay again. If travelling from other countries remember to take electrical converters.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Flat was all that was advertised. Was so nice that there was plenty of space. We enjoyed the use of the pool and sauna (was disappointed hot tub not working but not their fault). And nice that pool was on the same floor across the hall (my husband even showered there to give us 3 girls space in the morning!). We enjoyed also watching a movie together on the DVD after a long day touring around (great selection). When we had a question about how to work the stove Sue called IMMEDIATELY to walk me through it. We even decided to just walk home from the theater at Covent Gardens our last night (instead of cramming onto tube) and it wasn't really that far. I would recommend this flat to ALL my friends (and I work for an airline!) in a heartbeat! Clean, great location, easy to get to from airport, and had everything we needed. Also Thomas the concierge was WONDERFUL!! Thanks for great time!!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment as stated, easy to find and great access to all of London. Bus stops steps away, Tube and Train easy walk. Shops close by for all our needs. We arrived early and were able to leave our luggage and head out to the sights right away. Tomasz came as soon as we called, gave us some tips on the area, over all very pleasant and helpfull.

My husband, two adult children and I spent three comfortable days here. Location is good (near the tube), it was especially well-equipped, clean, spacious, well-priced. Email communication with the owners was clear and prompt.

Fantastic apartment in a great location. Perfect for families with young children.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our short stay. I've never booked an apartment in london before and we stayed for four days with our three children. The apartment was perfect for our stay and the location was ideal for getting around and seeing the sites of london.

From start to finish i was very happy with our stay at Herbal Hill Gardens. The landlords David and Sue are very helpful with any queries you may have and responded to all emails promptly. We travelled by car as we have a young baby, and there is on site parking available which was very helpful to us. I was met there by Thomas on reception, who helped with the parking and throughout our stay was very helpful and polite.

The area of Farringdon itself is lovely, with a pick of restaurants and bars which are all very accomodating to young families. The apartment is also yards away from Farringdon tube station, so making getting around london extremely easy.
