Harpers & Queen

150 BEST PLACES ON EARTH – THE MAIN HOUSE featured as THE BEST CITY B&B

Just a minute from Portobello Road, the appeal of this small, new b&b is in the details – huge, incredibly comfortable beds with Egyptian cotton sheets and powerful Niagara-like showers.

Private phones and Internet connections are not what you would expect of a house with just four guest rooms – all with high ceilings, original wood floors draped with animal skins, and beautiful antiques. Already Japanese pop
stars, LA film producers and Russian princesses have enjoyed the excellent service offered by hostess and owner Caroline Main.

Happy to help in any way – from loaning bicycles to arranging a visit to the local Lambton Place Health Club or a night out at private members’ club L’Equipe Anglaise. Caroline has also negotiated a healthy discount for guests wanting to breakfast at the fashionable Tom’s Deli around the corner.
