Live like a Londoner!

by Kerryn Marks

Our Melbourne family enjoyed our stay at The Gloucester enormously. It was comfortable and roomy and we enjoyed the open window summer breezes and the outlook over the beautiful garden square. Fans were provided because of the predicted high temperatures. A gorgeous week in sunny London!

Gloucester

by Susan Warrington

Very spacious flat. Perfect for our multi generational visit to London. Fully outfitted kitchen, lots of games to entertain all. The half bath had a flushing lever that was out of the wall, so that toilet was unusable. The bath/shower combo in two of the bathrooms have no shower curtains, so lots of spilled water when showering. Excellent location in Kensington. Minutes from Gloucester Road Underground station. Also close to Waitrose, Oddbins, and Whole Foods. 

Thank you Susan, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We sincerely apologize for the flushing lever that was out of the wall, we are sorry you didn’t contact the London onsite team, they would have attended to it. We hope to welcome you again!

We had a wonderful week at The Gloucester. The lovely townhome was large enough for our family of 5 and had every amenity. The location was perfect- close to the tube station and walking distance to museums and shopping.

The Gloucester Review

by Susan T
The Gloucester was a wonderful townhouse. There were five of us and there was plenty of room and privacy for everyone. Great atmosphere and very comfortable and clean. Great location in a quiet neighborhood but close to everything. The Tube station was very close and we could get up to most of the main sightseeing areas in 20 minutes or less. The people at London Perfect were also very helpful and gracious. Our greeter was a delight!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Gloucester. The flat is comfortable and roomy, with a warm "lived-in" feel to it. The location is terrific - close to the tube, buses, a good array of restaurants and convenient shopping. We've been back three times!

The Gloucester Review

by Daisy Cho
Londonperfect is by far the most thorough and proactive vacation rental company we've encountered. From the reservations agent to the ground team in London (Sax and Dan. Dan even walked us and our luggage to the tube on our check-out date), everyone took that extra step to make sure our needs are met, glitches are fixed, etc. Two examples: 1) before our arrival, I emailed the reservation team about a hair dryer in the apartment. They didn't just tell me to call if I can't find it; they communicated with the London ground team who got back to me within a day, assuring me that the greeter will bring an extra one in case they can't locate the one that should already be in the apartment. 2) upon arrival I asked Sax and Dan about fans just as a back up. They couldn't locate them at first, which is really not a concern for us as London at that time was cool. Two hours later Sax emailed to say he talked to the owners who gave directions to the fans in a high cupboard, and he offered to come and get the fans out of the cupboard for us. Traveling with young kids, I can't begin to express how much I appreciate these thoughtful gestures. We'll absolutely use London Perfect and recommend our friends to the company in the future.

The Gloucester Review

by The Johnson Family
This was the second time we rented the Gloucester. We like the location, for museums for the young (and old!) and for a selection of good, reasonably priced restaurants. The flat is very comfortable and - the major reason we went back to it- has room for extended family or guests.

The Gloucester Review

by Laurie A
We had a wonderful time at the Gloucester apartment. It is roomy with all the amenities you would need. It was the perfect week with our 4 children. It is walking distance to the tube, Kensington Park and the bus line is just 2 blocks away. There is a beautiful park right across the street which makes for a lovely coffee on the balcony in the mornings 🙂 It was a wonderful place to stay and I would recommend it highly!!! Especially for families 🙂

The Gloucester Review

by Heather Shrimpling
The Gloucester was a great apartment for our family of 3 kids (including 1 infant). The location on the garden square was beautiful and was close to all the amenities and transport one would need. The street was quiet and the apartment had cable and enough room for us all to relax, my kids loved the bunk/trundle bed! Ann was very helpful and it was great to have a contact so close by. My family and I had a wonderful visit and would definitely stay there again.
