Mountview Guesthouse is a delightful, refined boutique Bed and Breakfast situated in a beautiful tree-lined street in Crouch End, an upmarket, leafy corner of North London. So convenient for sightseeing in the capital, it’s just a short walk to Finsbury Park underground station (step-free access), which is on both the Piccadilly and Victoria lines with direct services (every 3 minutes) to all the Central London tourist attractions, shops, museums, theatres and restaurants.
An archetypal late Victorian house, with spacious rooms, tall ceilings and large sash windows. Tastefully and lovingly restored, modernised and decorated using natural materials; each of the guest bedrooms has been individually designed to create a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing environment.
Crouch End has lots of green spaces, a handsome Broadway dominated by a brick clock tower and dozens of interesting shops, bars and independent restaurants. The area has long been home to a creative community of actors, writers, comedians and musicians. Many novels and short stories are set in Crouch End and it also provides the setting for lots of films and TV productions. The King’s Head pub, a popular nightspot, hosts comedy nights and high quality live music ranging from folk and jazz to blues and salsa. Visitors can enjoy lovely walks in the local parks or nearby in Highgate Woods or Queen’s Wood. There are also lots of playing fields in the area. Nearby attractions include: Alexandra Palace, Wood Green Shopping City, Kenwood and Hampstead Heath and the 16th Century Bruce Castle Museum.
Boutique and Breakfast has handpicked Mountview Guesthouse for its comfort, convenience and congenial conversation, which we think guests will thoroughly appreciate. Finding the right sort of accommodation in and around London, one of the world’s top tourist destinations, can prove challenging and expensive. Yes, there is plenty of choice, but it can be costly, especially in the centre of town, and hard work trying to find a friendly face. A fast and furious change of clientele can often lead to slipping standards and poor service.
Mountview Guesthouse offers an outstanding level of accommodation and service with an emphasis on quality, good facilities for guests and an exceptionally friendly and hospitable atmosphere. Convivial hosts, Odette and Daniel, will provide a wholesome and hearty breakfast in readiness for the day ahead, and being well versed on the many ‘must see and do’s’ will happily steer you in the right direction to enjoying some of the best entertainment and attractions London has to offer.
What do you need after an exciting, exhausting, busy day sightseeing? A little bit of peace and calm, Mountview Guesthouse offers a quiet haven to return to for some well-earned rest and repose.
