There are cheaper apartments around, but none where you will feel more at home, surrounded by top-quality furnishings, every appliance and a thousand personal touches. This is 5-star self-catering accommodation.

The owner is a film and television Executive Producer. The property has been the home of many celebrities, including actor Sir David Jason OBE and BBC TV presenter Kirsty Wark.



We had a great time at Lancaster Court from the moment David greeted us. We have stayed in London a number of times in the past, but always at soulless, cramped and usually noisy hotels. Lancaster Court is opposite in every respect. Very pleasant, well fitted out apartment, spacious, secure and quiet, yet in the heart of everything. It's hard to believe its so close to Oxford Street. The surrounding streets have much to offer, with good restaurants, cafes, pubs, and supermarkets. We would love to return one day, and will definitely recommend it to our friends. Henry and Dianne Walker.

I write to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your lovely apartment. We visit London regularly and stay in apartments, if we are staying for more than two nights. Lancaster Court is the nicest apartment we have stayed in. Many places feel very sterile, but your apartment is so homely with such thoughtful, quirky decor, bright colours, good quality fixtures and fittings, with all rooms being bright light and airy. We were very touched to see fresh flowers in the flat and also to be given milk, kitchen roll and useful basics, like tea and coffee, in the kitchen. The personal touches make a real difference. Needless to say the location is fantastic. Mark, who met us was really friendly and helpful, as you have been, and the flat was exactly like the pictures. Judy Heron

We have had a brilliant stay. Over the years we've stayed at many apartments throughout Europe and USA and your apartment is certainly one of the very best. Everything is as described and we found it to be very comfortable and extremely well equipped. We would love to stay here again on our next visit to London and will certainly recommend to our friends. Nick Holmes

The flat was a hidden jem, in the heart of London city. It was completely affordable too, especially considering its location and the amenities that were provided. The flat itself was lovely - beautiful rooms and a brilliant kitchen that's well equipped for home cooking. The neighbours were lovely too. David, Jonathan's brother was helpful and showed us everything the flat had to offer and gave us the keys. Jonathan has been a pleasure to deal with, and I will be recommending this apartment to everyone I know who is looking to stay in London. Janice Holmes

We had an amazing time and the flat was beautiful. Nellie Velji

We had a brilliant time in London and loved Lancaster Court. After long days of being a tourist it was great to have such a cosy, well-equipped place to return to. The area was fantastic - lots of bars and restaurants right on the doorstep and very convenient. All the fittings were good quality - lovely comfortable bed and sofa. It was good to have a couple of supermarkets close by, too. We have stayed in lots of self-catering places and this is one of the good ones. Anne Boyd

Mary and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your wonderful apartment in Fitzrovia - it had everything we had wanted and more: a wonderful position, great facilities and we loved having an early evening drink on the roof top deck. Wendy Handley

We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The apartment was comfortable, attractive and convenient for us. We especially appreciated all the little touches, such as the fresh flowers, books, CDs, DVDs etc, which made us feel very much at home. We had plenty of towels, linen and the kitchen stocked everything we needed and more! Many thanks for your contribution to our London holiday. I certainly will recommend your apartment to friends coming across from Australia. Michelle Wareham, Oz

We had a wonderful time at the apartment and think it is perfectly situated and has everything one would need. David and Suzanne Simmonds

I wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience we had at your apartment. It was clean, cozy and very thoughtful in its decor. We appreciate how professional you are and had a lovely stay in London. I will definitely love to return. Thank you so much. Milinda Zumpano, Spike TV

We really did have a lovely time at your place. The apartment was well equipped, spacious and charming. I especially enjoyed the small details in decoration: the posters, little waving Queen and Titanic memorabilia etc. The location is really handy. Your housekeeper was very nice and efficient. We will definitely return and I am also going to recommend you to my friends when they need a good quality place for reasonable price. Susanna Yla-Pynnonen

The apartment was great, thanks for everything. I have sent a link to a bunch of people, we loved the place and the location. We will definitely rent from you next time we're in London, thanks SO much. Ben Rayl

Just wanted to say we had a fabulous time in London and the apartment was immaculate and in an ideal location. I've never stayed anywhere as well kitted out, so congratulations; you have thought of everything. If we decide to return to London in the future, we will definitely be in touch. Lisa O'Neill

We had a lovely stay at Lancaster Court. It was fabulous to be so close to everything in London. Rebecca Richardson

Thanks again for a wonderful stay, the apartment and location was just perfect! The decor was beautiful Very cool! Elaine Laing

We had a fantastic stay at Lancaster Court. The location is ideal for accessing all manner of London entertainment/restaurants/museums and was so easy to get back to late at night after theatre etc. Brilliantly equipped, much more than we needed. Sheena Cornish

We loved this apartment! The location is excellent for all our activities, from sightseeing to restaurants and grocery shopping for breakfasts and late-night snacks at "home." The apartment was just what we expected from the description. David was very accommodating and friendly, making us feel very welcome and right at home. We definitely recommend this apartment and would rent again if we come back to London; it was so much better than being in a hotel ... it was home away from home. Kate Harmon

The location could not have been better. We had a warm welcome and everything worked fine. We will certainly recommend the apartment to our friends. Heidi Kogstad

We spent a fantastic holiday in your property, it was sort of perfect! We have been travelling to London quite often, but never stayed in a place like yours: close to all facilities and very very quiet at night. Hartmut Fleig

We had a fabulous weekend at Lancaster Court, thank you. We thought the apartment was delightful and in such a great location. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to have a mini break in the centre of town. Catherine Cartwright

We enjoyed our London visit very much, in large part due to your flat. Very convenient and so well located. Andrew Sion

We all enjoyed the flat and loved how central it was. Kay Madden

I really wanted to thank you for everything. My family and I really enjoyed the apartment. It was lovely, clean and we slept very well. I won't hesitate to recommend your apartment. Marion Corbel

We loved the apartment, the equipment and its location. We discovered many nice places to eat and shop in Soho and Clerkenwell. It's much better than using the underground. Just around the corner we found the Odeon. We will definitely recommend your apartment to friends and family. Wijnand Galema

Thank you so much for the perfect Christmas stay. The whole family loved it, from its cozy feel to the perfect location to everything in London. Amerio Family

We came down to London last year, but wanted to stay in a more central location this time. I have to say that the apartment was fantastic! It had everything we needed and the well equipped kitchen and DVD collection were the icing on the cake! The best thing was that it was quiet, considering its proximity to Oxford Street and also lovely and warm. We loved the fact that it was a family home and felt welcoming. Paul was great and had everything spotless for our arrival. Julie Tarn

Your apartment was lovely and so close to all the things we wanted to do. Maria Stanley

The flat far exceeded our expectations. It was clean and comfortable and the location is great. We enjoyed looking at what you had on the walls and your furniture was also fascinating to us. Thanks again and there is no question we will be back. Again, thanks for a wonderful week at your home. Al Hemond

We loved the flat's decoration, and the beds were so comfy. The guy who met us was so kind. The flat's location is excellent, right next to Oxford Street. Behind the flat there are many shops, so whenever we needed something it was easily obtained. If we have a chance to go to London again, I'd choose this flat again without any hesitation. Emil Dvorjak

Just wanted to say we had a fabulous time in London and the apartment was immaculate and in an ideal location. I've never stayed anywhere as well kitted out, so congratulations; you have thought of everything. If we decide to return to London in the future, we will definitely be in touch. Lisa O'Neill

We enjoyed such a good time at your apartment. Everything was perfect for the large family. Gülçin

Thank you for your hospitality – we really enjoyed our stay at Lancaster Court.

We've already recommended it to our friends and will surely return ourselves. Our kids already call it “our London home”! Minna Saario & Family

Our stay was perfect: really good time we spent in London. Many thanks for your hospitality. Lubos Gajdos

We have just arrived back from our trip and Lancaster Court, which was the very best! Everything was exactly as we expected. It is a charming and cozy apartment and everything was around the corner. Andres Cripovich

We had a really wonderful time at Lancaster Court - it was absolutely perfect. Natalie Orme

We enjoyed the apartment some days during this summer and it has been really extraordinary: an excellent situation and very well cared for, welcoming, and extensive flat. The housekeepers were very attentive and efficient. Maria Cazares

Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Lancaster Court. It was a comfortable, well-located home away from home. The whole booking and check-in process went very smoothly. The Roden Family

We had a great stay at Lancaster Court. It was everything we wanted from our brief visit to London. Your apartment has a very "lived in" feel about it. It was nice to be surrounded by someone else's treasures. Everything worked perfectly and we had the added reassurance that David was just a phone call away. We came back late from the theatre on the first night but felt really safe walking from the tube station and in and around the apartment building. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending your apartment to friends and family. Liz Kite

We stayed for three nights in late June and could not have been happier with our choice. Impeccably clean and well-maintained with everything we could hope for during our stay. Beautifully decorated inside. Quiet neighborhood but within walking distance of a huge assortment of restaurants and food stores. Near your choice of public transport options but easily walkable to Soho, Trafalgar, Piccadilly ... will definitely return next time we are in London. Thank you, Jonathan and family, for sharing your lovely home! Jacky Reding

We very much enjoyed our stay at Lancaster Court and have been recommending it to our friends and family. Tracey

We had a great time being in London and staying at Lancaster Court. We will definitely consider staying there again at a later visit. Espen

Your London flat is paradise! I loved it the moment we arrived and only wished I could stay longer. Will definitely return again and will recommend it to my friends. Jackie

Thank you! We all had a fabulous time in the flat, which was perfect for us. The location, amenities, everything was spot-on, and helped us feel like true Londoners. Robert Vinson

Our stay in Lancaster court was excellent and the apartment was very cosy and even better than our expectations. Location and all the services around. I'm glad to recommend Lancaster Court to everyone! Ulla Ryöppönen

We had a fantastic time in London and we were very impressed with the standard of Lancaster Court. It was beautifully decorated, in a great location and all your thoughtful touches were appreciated by us all. We will definitely be back! Sarah Darlington

We had a wonderful stay at your apartment! It was so much cozier than a hotel; had a very nice feeling to it. The girls were amazed over your DVD collection! It has been a pleasure to rent your flat in London; the ease with the payments and the return of the deposit couldn't have gone smoother. Dagmar Sullivan

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lancaster Court - a lovely apartment with lots of character, but with all mod cons! Great situation with easy access to restaurant and theatres. We would certainly consider a return visit. Will also recommend to friends visiting London. Kathleen Wilson

We had a wonderful time. The flat is fabulous. The boys were particularly impressed with the DVD collection. We will return in the future. Jeremy Campbell-Cairns

Many thanks for a top quality stay in London. We were very satisfied with the accommodation, location and the high quality of the flat itself. It could not have been better. Emelie Augustsson Just arrived home. Many thanks for a most enjoyable stay at Lancaster Court. It was a great location and home from home. We would definitely contact you again next time we plan a trip to London. David Morrant

The London region

The apartment is located in the heart of 'Fitzrovia' (a neighbourhood celebrated for its excellent restaurants), which lies between Marylebone to the West and Bloomsbury to the East. This historically bohemian area was once home to such writers as Virginia Woolfe, George Bernard Shaw, Dylan Thomas and Arthur Rimbaud, and is more latterly known as a media and advertising hub. A 200-yard walk to the South will take you over Oxford Street into Soho and Mayfair. To explore London on foot, you could not be better situated. Here, the whole of the city is on your doorstep.

Central London/Zone 1

Equidistant from Goodge Street, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Circus tube stations. A 5-minute taxi ride from Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras.

Only 30 yards from Charlotte Street, with its plethora of brilliant and varied restaurants, bars and pubs.

"Beautiful Apartment"

Thank you for your kind words, which are welcomed and gratefully received. With regards to comments, we fully appreciate our guests' feedback and act upon suggestions immediately: we have recently renewed the mattress, so now it's really comfortable; we have just installed a new and dedicated 6mb wifi system that covers the whole apartment, together with a back-up (we understand how important broadband is these days); yes, we could include the Meet 'n' Greet fee/cleaning charge in the rental, but it would effectively amount to the same thing, and with regard to utilities/heating/cooling we think it more fair to charge on usage in accordance with individual requirements (we host guests from both the desert and the poles!); the kitchen seats two comfortably, but there is a large table in the lounge which easily accommodates four for dinner, together with a huge and comfy family sofa. Hope this helps and all the very best, Jonathan & Polina

"a perfect flat in a perfect location"

This lovely spacious one bedroomed flat in located in a very smart well maintained block in a wonderful location, with shops, restaurants and bars on the doorstep, and within walking distance of many major London atttractions.
The flat is light, airy and bright with wonderful quirky, slightly unusual décor that makes it feel very homely and welcoming. The fixtures and fittings are of high quality and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need.
The owner is extremely helpful and the whole booking process is efficient and easy, Prior to arriving we were sent full instructions about location, getting there and who would meet us.

"Goodbye soulless hotels, hello Lancaster Court!"

We had a great time from the moment David greeted us. We've stayed in London a number of times, but always at soulless, cramped and usually noisy hotels. Lancaster Court is opposite in every respect. Very pleasant, well fitted out apartment. Spacious, secure, quiet, yet in the heart of everything. Hard to believe its so close to Oxford street. Surrounding streets have much to offer, with good restaurants, cafes, pubs, and supermarket. We'd love to return one day, and will definitely recommend to our friends.

20 Jun 2013



Stayed in the apartment for a week and were very impressed by the location. We love being in the centre of the action and this certainly delivered - you even get a lovely pub as a neighbour! The apartment is a reasonable size and well equipped - it also has lovely touches like a decent coffee machine!
Id recommend this apartment for those people that have a knowledge of London and want that central feeling without the formality of a hotel. For us this was perfect in that it made us feel connected to the local area.

"Elegant city apartment in a fantastic location"

This beautiful apartment was everything that we hoped for and more. The service was outstanding and the accommodation was luxurious. We couldn't believe how well-located it was. It was great being just a couple of minutes' walk from Oxford Street whilst also being able to enjoy the 'village' feel of Goodge Street.

David, who met us, was welcoming and extremely helpful. He showed us around the apartment, clearly explaining how everything worked. There was an excellent written guide to help us through our stay too. This thoughtful service made us feel immediately at ease. The apartment was very clean and beautifully presented.

We will definitely be renting this apartment again.

"Absolutely perfect accommodation. Highly recommended."

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this apartment. In our view and from our experience, there isn't a better self-catering place to stay in London, and we've rented a fair few apartments over the years over there. It's beautifully presented, with a host of glorious personal touches, some quirky corners and every facility that we could require or hope for. The huge couch in the lounge is a superb, comfy feature, on which we could snuggle and enjoy breathtaking HD on the 50" plasma screen. The Victorian bed is extremely cosy. The bathroom a joy. The kitchen a delight to cook and eat in. The owners have thought of everything, with seemingly no expense spared (honestly, this is such good value). The location is to die for - you can walk to anywhere; so near the center - and Charlotte Street is just out of the window, with its brilliant array of restaurants. You can be in be Soho in 2 minutes. And when we couldn't be bothered to go out, there's a lovely roof terrace which we always had to ourselves, to sunbathe and dine overlooking the pleasant neighborhood. It's a great place. We'll be back, when we return again from the States. Indeed, we've already booked. We won't be looking anywhere else.
