~ Balham B&B selected in Sawday's top London B&B poll

~ SW12 B&B rivals Chelsea and Notting Hill


Georgina Ivor's beautiful Balham house and garden in a quiet SW12 street have been featured by The Guardian as one of London's 10 best Bed & Breakfasts.  Selected by Alastair Sawday from his Special Places to Stay guide, Balham B&B was included amongst B&Bs in Chelsea,  Notting Hill and Fulham.  It was also featured in Hachette's exclusive French guide Chambres Secrètes à Londres.

Georgina Ivor said: "I was delighted that The Guardian chose 28 Old Devonshire Road and equally thrilled to be included in the Hachette guide in the very same month."

With its lovingly tended, award-winning garden and immaculate accommodation Balham B&B has received glowing accolades in its guestbook:
