"Luxury accommodation and unbeatable service"

We stayed at this apartment for a hen weekend based in London.Picking a place to stay can definitely make or break the trip and with this apartment we were not left disappointed. What you see is what… More

I am so pleased that the penthouse worked out for you all. You are so right about getting the property choice right. It really can make or break experience of London. What you see is what you get so the only surprises when you are arrive.......are always good ones. The property tends to look bigger in the flesh than it did in pictures.. its hard to get an idea of how much space you get here so your comment about "16 of you not feeling under each others feet" is excellent to hear. We did have a problem for some reason with the water flow during your stay and are now increasing the water tank from 340 to 750 litres to make sure there is a constant flow to avoid having a momentary break in supply ever again. I look forward to welcoming you again on another occasion. warmest Regards

"London's Finest"

The Penthouse at Candlemakers Apartments in Battersea, just outside of London, is the perfect place to stay when visiting London and the surrounding area! From the moment we walked in the door we were impressed. The abundance of windows throughout the Penthouse made the infamous London rainy days seem brighter. With the variety of bedrooms and living areas, everyone in my family was very content too. While I enjoyed morning coffee and crumpets in the half-glass covered sun room in the morning, my brothers enjoyed the petite balcony off of the second floor's bedrooms overlooking the brightly-lit London skyline in the evening. After long days of exploring London, my whole family was happy to hang out on the spacious roof-top balcony or in the cozy living room.

Despite being thousands of miles away from Chicago, we felt right at home when we returned to the Penthouse from long days of touring the city and surrounding area. The Penthouse in Battersea is just the right distance outside of London too. It's close enough to jump right into whatever touring we wanted to do, while also being far enough away that we didn't have to constantly be in the hustle and bustle of the city.

On days when we didn't feel like venturing into the city, we found lots of local establishments right in Battersea. The variety of restaurants, bars, and pubs in Battersea was just what we wanted as well, from the classic London pub-fare of fish and chips to something a little more adventurous with cuisines from South Africa, Thailand, Afghanistan, and more.

Lastly, but certainly not least is the owner, Bob. Renting this beautiful apartment wouldn't have been nearly as enjoyable if it weren't for working with him. He met us right at the apartment as soon as we arrived, had purchased us a couple goodies to munch on after our long day of travel, and gave a great tour of the Penthouse. More so, whenever we had questions or concerns, Bob was always more than willing to help. It was a pleasure meeting and working with Bob.

If you have the good fortune to travel to London, staying at the Penthouse of the Candlemaker Apartments is an absolute must!


Wow....what a great review..........Thank you so much.
You have really captured it all in this review & it was an absolute pleasure meeting you all. Being in Battersea is still in Zone 2 of London so you can get to most places in central London within 10-20 minutes
I really want you to have the best experience of London & staying somewhere special is part of it.
Reviews like this means its working :-))
I look forward to welcoming you and your lovely family again x

I loved this place.Much more than the pictures show.
Easy to take the bus, very quiet and the apart is charming, the kitchen complete, the rooms and beds are perfects, very good places to eat nearby or demand by phone to eat home.
Robert, the owner is always helping for any problem and doubts.
I went with my children and will returning in 2013. I really recommend without restrictions.
