I stayed at John's guest house for almost 2 months in Jan/Feb'13 due to a prolonged biz trip. Was a very pleasant stay. The place is very clean and the service great. However the location in the heart of the Clapham Junction area is probably the best thing about it. 5 min walk to Clapham Jct, Clapham Common or the...

Well located with underground 5 min walk away & 1o mins to London Central. If you can put up with stairs & small rooms may suit however Budget Hotel would always be better proposition The staff were pleasant & run by a family over many years. Seemed popular

My husband and I have found The Lavender Guest House on Google map as we are looking for a B&B that is near the train station/subway for convenience for a 3 night stay. John and Tony Hooss have been great hosts to us during our stay. The rooms are clean, warm and comfortable and the home-made breakfast is terrific too!...

Stayed here was one night last Saturday as we were meeting old friends locally and the location was very convenient. The owner was very pleasant and our room(2) was spotless and very comfortable.

I made enquiries and booked this place well ahead of my trip. John was very helpful via email and over the phone. I had to change plans last minute giving less than 48hrs notice but John was very understanding and re-arranged my booking for me and did not charge any penalties. I was greeted by Tony on arrival and was...

A fantastic find, the room was clean and comfortable, ensuite newly renovated, overall we were very comfortable. Family run business, they could not have been more helpful. Short walk to train station and the High St with many shops and ASDA close by. Plentiful breakfast but limited choices. Will certainly stay again. Carol & Peter, Australia

It was close to a 20 hours flight before we arrive at this B&B. Our arrival was greeted by Tony who was very helpful and accomodating. We soon settled in with his help and started exploring the surroundings that afternoon itself. Morning breakfast was simple but nice with friendly service. Great location and if we are visiting London again we...
