Visitors to Notting Hill looking to slot right into the creative community like an honorary Londoner will get off on the right foot with a stay at stylish guesthouse, the Main House. Not a hotel or bed and breakfast per se, the room-only property is a quite literal home away from home as guests can take one of just a few available rooms in the pretty West London townhouse.

While the room-only basis might put some people off, the owner has an arrangement with nearby cafes and restaurants that gains guests small discounts-a sweet touch


Large, bright rooms with hardwood floors are everything you’d want from a chic, understated Notting Hill pad. Replete with sofas and antique bureaus, they’re large enough to spend periods relaxing in without feeling cramped.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The Main House doesn’t accommodate single night stays but discounts are available on longer periods.


Clean, stylish bathrooms come with bath and shower and plenty of space.
