General Information: Welcome to 57 Holland Road B&B ... this vast townhouse is to be found just off Kensington High Street, in London, England close to the exhibition halls of Olympia, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Centrally located on busy Holland Road, it is very convenient for shops, restaurants and transport into and out of the city of London.

The house has been double-glazed to exclude the noise of the road and the owner, a writer, has created a home of great warmth and comfort. Inside, there is the space and comfort of a country rectory, but it is decorated in the eclectic urban style of a world traveller.
