The nearest tube station, located on the Jubilee line (silver). From central London take a north bound train and we are located 2 stops after Baker Street.

When leaving the station take exit number 2, turn left on exiting the station. Walk up the hill slightly staying on the right hand side of the road, following College Crescent after walking 2-3 minutes you will come to a small fork in the road, to the left is College Crescent and to the right is Fitzjohn’s Avenue. Directly in front on the left of you will be big red building which is us.


We have a 24 hour cancellation Policy prior to check.
Please contact us before 2 pm the day before your arrival. Failure to do so will result in the 1st night of your booking being to charged to the card you reserved with.
