          Hello Phyllis, Thank you for your email. We are a private home offering B&B. We do not have an elevator in our home so regretfully its very unlikely our accommodation would be suitable.

          Dear Kiwi 874, I am utterly bemused by your review and have to wonder if you were sraying at the Lilac Door or somewhere else. We have stayed there many times. We seek out places where the standards are very very high and can only assume that you mistakenly went to another establishment as the hospitality and comfort offered by the Lilac Door is superb. Did you have an A to Z of London? Did you perhaps get a little lost?
