Perfectly situated in Kensington, the Shelbourne is a bright and spacious one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment overlooking a lovely garden square. Everything about the setting will make you feel right at home in one of London’s most sought-after neighbourhoods. Here in a row of historic terraced homes, which are listed Grade II on the National Heritage List for England, you’ll find the Shelbourne. Inside, the living room has three large windows overlooking the garden below. A dining nook nearby, fully equipped kitchen, and finely finished bathroom complete the comfortable home setting.


The beautiful light continues in the bedroom with its calming muted colours and small staircase leading up to a sunroom. This is a fine spot to enjoy a good book or continue through the sunroom to find an outdoor terrace for quiet moments in the evenings or starting your day with a cup of tea. This private outdoor space is incredibly rare for a central London apartment and is just one of the many features guests love during their stay at Shelbourne. You'll even have access to the gated communal garden square, an ideal spot to relax surrounded by nature – right at your doorstep.


For charm and convenience, this Kensington location couldn’t be better. The neighbourhood is full of great restaurants and cute cafe choices as well as excellent food shopping all just a few minutes’ walk away. Hop on the Tube at Gloucester Road nearby to easily reach all corners of London. Enjoying a morning run or leisurely walk through Kensington Gardens is a favorite local pastime. Don’t miss the chance to visit the Kensington Palace, home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family, or visit the world-class cultural sights in the area: the Royal Albert Hall, Victoria and Albert Museum and Science Museum. Fall in love with London all over again at the Shelbourne!

Shelbourne Review

by Linda Pickering

We enjoyed our stay at the apartment with few issues; elevator not working the first day and some construction noise next door. Overall a great location and spacious apartment, we look forward to using London Perfect again, your attention to detail and follow up is wonderful and your recommendation of Lushi Limo excellent! Thank you.

EXTRA

by Julie Wurts

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we needed to adjust our plans and London Perfect handled it - perfectly. From Baker's, our greeter, immediate responses and willingness to go the EXTRA mile to help us to the office being EXTRA accommodating with luggage, timing, and offering EXTRA service and kindness. They all went above and beyond in ways that made a HUGE difference to our entire experience. I cannot stress how helpful they all were in times of need! As for the apartment, EXTRA fabulous. Clean and bright and charming. On a quiet street in a lovely neighborhood, yet right next to the action. We look forward to returning and have full confidence in London Perfect and their professional team. Thank you, Jo Baker and the others. Cheers.

Loved the Shelbourne

by Tracy Zams

We absolutely loved the apartment. It truly felt like home for the two weeks that we stayed there. The bed was super comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud. The host was super nice and left us tea, coffee, juice, water, etc. We loved the area, the local restaurants, and how convenient the location was. You could walk to multiple grocery and convenient stores. It was also a quick walk to Gloucester Tube Station. I highly recommend London Perfect, as well as, the Shelbourne.
