This is the first, and definitely won’t be the last Bed and Breakfast experience I have had. Matt and his wife are extremely delightful and assisted my wife and I with everything that we needed. Meeting Matt and staying at his home was a highlight of our trip.
First off, the neighborhood is extremely quaint, and walking distance to a ton of food options. Not only that, the neighborhood felt extremely safe, and was very quiet.
As for getting there from London, it was extremely easily, and a great hub for exploring other parts of London. Before arriving, ask Matt how to best get there from where you are coming and he will have you perfectly on your way.
Outside of all of the nearby food options, just a short Tramlink or Uber ride away are tons of shopping options in East Croydon, and a diverse cultural scene in Brixton.
As for the space, and amenities, we loved our view of the backyard and garden. The massive window let in ample light and made the room feel generously spacious. More than that, since there are only four guest rooms, you can easily demand Matt’s attention and not worry about being around a ton of people. But it was amazing to meet everyone (some at least) in the morning during breakfast. Speaking of, I enjoyed the breakfast setup they had. Every night around 9:00pm, you fill out your menu for the following morning - giggling the time you want to eat between 7:00am and 8:45am, while also choosing your entree. It was magnificent.
