"Lovely Sanctuary in great London Location"

This property is very well located. The 170 bus is right outside and takes you to Clapham Junction Station in one direction and Victoria Station in the other. Great local shops and amenities. Lovely to walk along the river - you can easily walk the whole way to the Kings Road. The rooms are lovely and large and everything is easy to use. The security is excellent.

"Comfortable and nice stay"

Our stay for 1 week was really nice. The apartment is the same as it appears in pics, clean, and with everything you could need. Kitchen is really well equipped, with many utensils, oven, and even dishwasher.

The location is very convenient, with shops and restaurants very close and buses very well connected to go to main city points. Buses 170 and 44 stop in front of the building and let you in Victoria for example in 20 min. Barclays bicycles are also available just front the house but we finally didn´t use them. For your info, a Sainsbury´s is just 10min walk and italian restaurant Melanzana is very recommended.

Annabel was really kind and answer our doubts and questions very quickly. The booking with her was very fast and all was fine. Also her daughter explained us all we need at the apartment and she was very helpful by phone since we had some doubts about the shower (it was easier as we thought, but at teh beginning we didn´t understand it very well).

Sometimes the noises for the traffic can wake you up so if you are sensitive it´s better if you take earplugs just in case.

We enjoyed very much our stay at Archer on Thames and love to come back. We would recommend it to visit London for sure.

"Comfortable London Flat"

"Home, sweet home"

Archer House has been "our home" for two weeks, and we enjoyed our holidays a lot. Mrs. Burton's doughter kindly showed us the house. Everything was fine. On our arrival, neighbors welcomed us offering us a drink, it was a very hot day. The inner courtyard is a large common area, where you can rest quietly, and in the evening, in summer, you can dine outdoors, and have a chat with your neighbors. Our holiday began in the best possible way...
The detailed indications the owner left for her guests are very useful, and also one book about London walks: we particularly enjoied a walk from Sion House to Strawberry Hill, on a sunny windy day.
Perhaps the metro station is a bit far away, but the bus is efficient and after a while you get used to. In addition, the house is close to Clapham Junction.
We have been given a set of keys only, but we didn't think to ask for a second one, because we didn't need it.
We'll surely return to London, and it will be at Archer House.

"Love to stay at Archer on Thames"

This was our second stay at Archer on Thames and we enjoyed the comfortable, spotless accommodation and the convenience to transport and facilities. The apartment is extremely private and quiet yet there is always something interesting happening with the fantastic view across the Thames. We enjoyed not only the well equipped apartment but the surroundings as well.

"superb flat and very home;y and comfortable"

The flat is very comfortable. The rooms are large and airy and there is a nice view of the river from the lounge. It is homely and does not feel like a holiday letting. It is very easy to access the West End either by bus to Victoria from right outside the flat or from Clapham Junction station with trains literally every couple of minutes. There is lots of information available for those who do not know London well. There are some interesting local food shops and places to eat out.

My husband and I had a brilliant time staying at Archer. Apart from the flat having everything that you need , even condiments for meals (after all who wants to shop for the mundane things while on holiday) it was so close to everything. Lovely walks through Battersea Park and a hop over the bridge to Pimlico and Chelsea .Great pub called the Orange in Pimlico, seriously good food. We will certainly be staying there again on our return to England in the Spring.
