We stepped into a beautiful, quiet mews in Kensington to discover the lovely Hornton mews home! This beautiful home features three bedrooms, two bathrooms and sleeps up to six people. It is located just off Hornton Street in Kensington, close to the High Street Kensington Tube and Notting Hill Gate Tube. You're in the middle of bustling Kensington, with loads of shopping, supermarkets, restaurants and museums, but in this quiet mews, it feels as though you've been transported back to Olde England.

Located in one of the safest and most prestigious areas of London, you'll love the iron street sign that spans between two Victorian homes and the original cobblestones. In Victorian days, the mews were located behind even grander homes and used to stable horses and house servants. Nowadays, they have been transformed into gorgeous multi-million pound homes and the cobble stoned little streets create a special feeling of a small neighborhood. That describes the Hornton in every way.

Hornton Review

by Megan Morris
Our family of four found the Hornton apartment to be wonderfully comfortable. The location is perfectly situated in a quiet neighborhood, close to Hyde Park, the tube, and an array of yummy restaurants (plus Whole Foods is just a short walk away). Our favorite place in the apartment was the cozy living-room with fire place. The bedrooms are well sized and beautiful with high quality bedding. The bathrooms are modern and the hot water is HOT! The kitchen was stocked with all that we needed to prepare our own meals in the apartment.

We had a wonderful time at the Hornton. Very clean, comfortable and well stocked. The apartment is in a perfect location with restaurants and stores close by. Two different train stations within walking distance. I would highly recommend both the Hornton and the neighborhood.

Once again London Perfect came thru. We had a big group but the apartment was perfect, in a perfect location, just down the street to the Chocolate Show. We were able, everyday, to just walk down to the Show where we were exhibiting. No problem to get there, walk was short, tube was available and our favorite at night, the bus dropping us off just off Church Street, two small blocks from apartment, downhill, both ways. We have stayed in apartment before, always have really like it and this time they had updated the bathrooms, very nice job. We love this area, lots of food, lots of shopping, great transportation. We are not afraid of buses or tube. We will probably come here again in Fall, great weather, not as many tourists, lots of fun everywhere. Loved it!

Our Hornton apartment was perfect for our family of six...and as you can imagine, that is a large request! The location was fantastic. We were situated right in between two very accessible Tube stops, Notting Hill and High Street Kensington. We loved all of the delicious food options -- try Ffiona's 🙂 -- and the proximity to Kensington Park We rode bikes there using the rentals from the transit system...so easy and affordable. We could grocery shop easily and often made dinners or breakfasts. We were safe, comfortable and absolutely enjoyed every minute. Thank you for an amazing stay in London.

I stayed in London in Hornton with my family in October just for three days. We really had a great time. The location in Kensignton was really comfortable. We arranged the pick up from and to the airport with Lushi and he was great and very professional. As soon as we arrived in the flat, we had someone from the London perfect team who provided some useful info regarding the house. We wish to come back again. Thanks again to the London perfect team.

It could not have been better, charming apartment located perfectly between Kensington High Street Station and Nottinghill Gate Station. There were so many cafes and restaurants around it was very very easy. I did not want to leave. London Perfect staff are so helpful and accommodating. I loved just walking up or down the streets, picking out the houses and apartments I would like to buy if I could. We were able to visit all the museums easily even when we were short of time because of reservations elsewhere. The apartment is decorated in lovely fabrics and colors, everything was clean and fresh and bonus they have a washer and dryer. I had two grandchildren with me besides my son and his wife and the washer and dryer were a must. Thanks so much for having us back again I will rent from London Perfect again and again. So handy!

This property is lovely. Staying in a mews house was wonderful! It is very quiet and has all the old world charm and intrigue that you hope London will provide. The property was perfect for my family and is in a great location. It provided all the comforts of home which was welcomed after a long day of sightseeing. I highly recommend this property and working with the London Perfect team was a pleasure.

Hornton Review

by Gary Langbaum
Five of us stayed in this apartment recently and could not have been more pleased. The location, between the High St Kensington station and the Notting Hill station was superb, making train travel very easy. In addition, there are numerous buses in the streets around the unit which allowed our 4 year old grandson to experience the double decker. Having a Whole Foods within a 5 minute walk also made it easy to get food into the apartment. The unit itself was spacious and everything within it was clean and well taken care of. We had London Perfect arrange to have a cleaning person come in for an hour a couple of times and she did an excellent job of straightening out the bathrooms, kitchen and bedrooms. She also washed and dried the towels. While not part of the service, this was easily arranged and well worth the nominal cost. Having an apartment made London so much more enjoyable and this one was super.

by Janet Dickson
Apartment was beautiful, comfortable and looked exactly like the pictures presented on the website. London Perfect was attentive to every detail of service, especially Lushi on airport service needs to and from the apartment. The apartment was located near "Tube" stops, great (inexpensive) shopping and the best market "Whole Foods". The apartment surroundings were very quiet and safe for late night outings. Some good pubs and restaurants were also in the neighborhood. There are simply no negatives concerning both the agency and the apartment we lived in for a short, memorable visit to London...even the beds were very comfortable! London Perfect is a great agency that is reliable, honest and easy to contact within both the U.S. and the U.K. I would use this agency every time I travel to the U.K. for a lengthy stay.

We enjoyed our stay SO much, the location was great! We came up with this to tell people what you can do here. 10 reasons why I *HEART* London! 1. Many awesome things to see. 2. A place where history was made. 3. A place filled with knowledge. 4. Never ever boring always something to do. 5. Always learn new things everyday. 6. Many plays you can go to, it's seems like Broadway. 7. Harrods the shopping center of the world definitely huge! 8. You don't have to drive you can walk, that's healthy for the environment. 9. You can go for a walk because you're bored and ten you can be enjoyed by what you see. 10. You can have fun no matter what you do. We enjoyed our stay so much like I said before. I suggest that you don't think ahead, be in the moment. Thanks London Perfect & Ed!

The Hornton was a perfect fit for our family. We have three young children so the ability to all sleep on the same floor was quite helpful. Also, the fact that it is situated on a mews meant that the kids could play soccer outside while the rest of us were getting ready. All the amenities/appliances were up-to-date and working well. We have a few questions during our stay to which the team was quite responsive. We are ready to go back next year!!

We have really enjoyed our stay at your Hornton property. We have been here on holiday during Christmas week and could not have enjoyed it more! We travel to London relatively frequently and have rented a number of apartments, mostly in the Kensington - Notting Hill area. The Hornton is by far the best equipped property that we have ever let. We did a fair amount of holiday cooking over Christmas Eve - Boxing Day and found everything we needed in the kitchen. We have also appreciated the proximity to shops and transportation - as well as our beloved London parks. A positively perfect location and absolutely quiet! I cannot close without mentioning the very thorough preparation materials we received from London Perfect. We found the same comprehensive information packet here that we did in our Paris rental with Paris Perfect - and advice on how to manage those dreadful early morning arrivals from America! Thank you for everything - we will be back! P.S. We love your greeter!

Dear London Perfect & Ed! Thank you for providing such a fantastic place for our family to stay while in London! The two weeks we had here were delightful - Ed provided a great welcome, the house was warm (something us Aussies were very grateful for during the cold English winter!) and the location was just perfect! Thanks again & we'll be back - see you soon! And it snowed on our last day!!! Cool Beans (love Luke)

We enjoyed the week we spent at the Hornton. The location was perfect...close to subway stations, grocery stores and restaurants and easy walking to a number of beautiful parks and attractions. The house itself was immaculately clean and well kept and had all the conveniences of home and all in good working order. It was great to have all the "tourist" information that was sent prior to our arrival so we could do some advance planning; and also to have contact information for Lushi so we could arrange transportation. It was a very nice touch to have someone at the house to greet us, answer our questions and let us know how to operate everything. Thank you and we would most certainly recommend this property to others.

Hornton Review

by Dr & Mrs Mark McCurdy
We came to London for Wimbledon and sightseeing. The Hornton was spacious, lovely, clean and perfectly located in one of the most posh areas of London: Kensington. The Hornton was ideal for us since we were traveling with children and it had three bedrooms. We were located between two great tube stops, Kensington High Street and Notting Hill. Just a few stops from all the main attractions in London. There was a large grocery store just a few minutes walk away so we could easily stock the kitchen for our breakfasts and dinners. We will never stay in a hotel again thanks to London Perfect!

The location was perfect! We loved the neighborhood, and enjoyed the easy accessibility to amenities and the Metro. There were a few dust bunnies upon our arrival, but really, that was the only thing that wasn't perfect with the Hornton apartment. We will definitely stay again when we return (hopefully) next year! We will also recommend you to all of our friends. Thanks for a great stay!

We had a great time staying at the Hornton Mews apartment. It was a fantastic location and included all the amenities you could ask for in an apartment. Let's just say we were spoiled. Transportation arranged to/from the airport and train station was great. Lushi, the driver, was very helpful and pleasant. We had, per your recommendation, asked Anne to make us a meal and deliver it one night and it was superb. Having the laundry facilities available was great. All in all, a very pleasant experience. Thank You!

The Hornton was a delightful apartment which was roomy enough for our three teenagers (wireless network worked well too). It was incredibly quiet which was amazing for central London and we felt very safe there. Its position was ideal being between two tube stations - we preferred Notting Hill as the Central Line was generally not too crowded compared with the Circle Line. Our only slight quibble was that the couch was very uncomfortable indeed (OK for lying down but horrible to sit on!).

We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It was clean, updated, and had every convenience we needed (we especially liked having a washer and dryer available, as it meant we could pack much less!). It was big enough for the 4 of us to spread out, which was important to us, and was very convenient to grocery stores, pharmacies, cash machines, and tube stops. Located on a beautiful residential street, and very quiet. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a vacation apartment in London!

We had a wonderful stay in London at the Hornton mews house! I actually grew up in London and did not want to be confined to a stuffy hotel room. The Hornton was perfect for our family and could not have suited our needs better. I thought the photos on your website looked fabulous and it was quite a surprise to discover that the real thing was even better than the pictures! Thank you also for the doctor recommendation at Cromwell hospital. My husband obtained some strong antibiotics and was soon on the mend. I would have to rate London Perfect superior in every way. Thank you so much.

Hornton Review

by Joan Wraxall
Our party of four adults stayed in the 3 bedroom, 2 bath Hornton Mews property during the London leg of our vacation. We found the apartment utterly modern, clean, comfortable and livable. The location between Notting Hill and Kensington high Street, both with underground stops, couldn't have been better. We walked downhill to the Kensington tube on our way out to see the sights and then returned home to the Notting Hill tube station in the afternoons because it was a downhill walk from there to the Hornton property, much appreciated after a day of sightseeing. Lovely area. We sampled restaurants in the neighborhood and were never disappointed. Shopping was great in the area, and when we cooked in, food from the Whole Foods on Kensington High Street made the meal special. We needed a car and driver to get to the airport and used the services of Luchi, recommended by the management. He is such an elegant and charming man. He provided the needed service in a timely and helpful manner and I can't recommend him highly enough. We had a wonderful stay at this apartment.

Hornton Review

by Moore Family
Stayed at the Hornton during a March break vacation. The Mews were in a fabulous location, close to great restaurants and the tube. Very clean and new appliances. While close to everything it was very quiet. The 3 bedrooms were perfect for our family (14 year old son, 11 year old daughter) and the layout was great for giving everyone their own space to unwind after a day sight seeing. The apartment was very clean and having a full kitchen allowed us to deal with breakfast and some dinners in a manner that allowed us to deal with certain food allergies. Would very highly recommend this apartment and would look at rebooking when we return to London. In addition to the great apartment, the car company and catering person (we had two dinners prepared and brought in) were top rate. As an overall note I would advise that I have highly recommended your organization to several colleagues who are looking to travel to London, Paris and Italy. In fact I have reviewed your sites for Italy, which is coming up on our agenda. I have found your organization extremely professional, and your properties live up to their billing. Both my wife and I, who both travel on business and are used to Four Seasons quality accommodation, were very pleased with your apartments.
