We are three Canadians from Winnipeg who were using the apartment as a place to stay while touring London for ten days. We found the apartment to be much better than an hotel as it was like a home wit… More

"Fantastic location for airport/train/tram connections, lovely clean, well equipped apartment, quiet surrounded by trees"
I loved my stay here, the apartment is in small block, surrounded by trees. The access from Gatwick airport was an easy train ride away, and for buses, trains and trams it is fantastic. The apartment is well maintained, light, good kitchen equipment and has charactistic older style windows and some antique style furniture. The bed was comfortable, linen crisp and clean. It is a quiet place with the windows looking out onto backgardens where you will see nature and wildlife. there are shops, cafes and restaurants all within walking distance.

We stayed in Havelock Hall July 2013, Myself and Wife and 3 Kids 12 - 5, And cannot recommend highly enough, I have already recommended to family. We were made to feel welcome from the outset with care package on arrival and a somebody to meet us in the late pm to let us into the apartment. Located in a quiet street set back from the street within a quick walk to tram stops and local shops. ( Central London in 30 mins) the apartment is well appointed and catered well to our needs. I think this would suit most travelers ( Stairs to the apartment and stairs internally ) The apartment was clean and tidy and with free WiFi one very happy 12yr old. thank you Elizabeth

"Excellent clean flat with easy access to central London"
We stayed with two young children under 5. We were made very welcome and given photos of the entrance to Havelock Hall which solved any previous problems finding the flat as it is hidden. The flat was… More

"Nice Apartment but need to provide more detail direction to find the place"
The apartment is in good size and very comfortable. The only thing I would suggest is they should give a more clear direction to go to the apartment (maybe a map to highlight the entrance), as this apartment is hiding behind couple houses from Havelock Road, I have no problem in finding the street but has wandering around for over 20 mins and knocked couple neighbour's doors to try to locate Havelock Hall, which is very frustrating. Other than that, the apartment is very nice and I took Bus X26 from Heathrow Airport to
East Croydon Station (1..5hrs) , from there , transfer to a tram or bus 198 or 194, for only 2 stops will lead you to the top of Havelock Road. East Croydon station is located in zone 5, so if you get a off peak travel card zone 1-6 (8.50GBP) , you can have unlimited travel after 9:30am including train, bus, underground, tram. The Travel card can be purchased at Heathrow airport from the ticket booth and usually I will pre-purchase the next day travel card at East Croydon while I back to the apartment at the end of the day. From East Croydon to Victoria, there is train departed every 12 mins but you might like to board on an express train which have only 2-3 stops and takes you 15 mins to go to Victoria Station.
Many thanks for your great review.
Thanks for the suggestion regarding directions, we will send more detailed directions, with map and picture, to all of our future clients. Regards, Elizabeth.

"Everything we needed"
We were staying at Havelock Hall whilst attending a conference in Croydon. The flat was only 20 mins walk away from Croydon centre and from there we could grab a train to Victoria and London Bridge which only took 20-30mins depending on the root, so the location was perfect.
We were given a brief tour and left some milk, fruit and biscuits which was a nice touch given the time of night we ended up arriving.
The living area was spacious, big dining table, well equipped kitchen. Both bathrooms were very clean and showers worked well.
Also very quiet, it's in an area of Croydon that isnt to busy, but being a bit more hidden away we all found it very relaxing.
