Fantastic stay. Thanks.

Had a great stay!
Mr Ondrej J

The kitchen was without glasses, cups, soap, cutlery, openers -- i.e., everything except fridge, stove, and micro-wave. I coped, but it seemed a little cheap. The doors need oiling, and they close with a thud, which is potentially disturbing to those asleep. The stairs up to the kitchen sagged and complained when I walked on them. I suggest that a carpenter inspect them. All in all I enjoyed myself at Batavia Mews. The connections to central London were excellent, via New Cross Gate Station. I would come again.

A very pleasant stay. Gold Smith is a good accomodation to visit London. Staff is professional and kind.
