Positive Reviews

"Great Digs"

The Balham Lodge is right next to the tranquil Tooting Bec Common It's a perfect place for an early morning job or afternoon picnic It's also just a short walk to the public transportation (underground and above ground!) Couple that with all the charming pubs in the area and you've found some "great digs" indeed.

Victorian With a Dash Of Edwardian

The lodge has been deemed to have a Victorian design along with Edwardian features such as a stained class front door and original banister "Quaint" and "charming" are the buzzwords most often used to describe the accommodations Nothing wrong with that.

Emphasis On The Breakfast

Obviously, a facility that bills itself as a "bed & breakfast" is going to put out a nice spread for the early risers The Balham Lodge doesn't disappoint whether you order the full English breakfast or opt for the Continental buffet It's included in the room rates, so enjoy!

Negative Reviews

Water Backup

An old building will have old plumbing A recent guest suffered through a slow draining sink that made things challenging for the three people staying in the room It didn't help that they thought the rooms was too small On the plus side, breakfast was very nice.

Wonky Fire Alarm

Things happen at a hotel that can also happen in your home That doesn't mean they are acceptable Consider the case of the fire alarm that went off throughout the weekend Apparently, no one on duty knew how to reset the alarm That certainly made for a noisy weekend.

Check In And Check Out

Recently Guests arrived for a wedding and needed to make a quick change When the room they booked wasn't ready, they were offered another twin Apparently, they never booked a twin in the first place One feel of the bed had them racing for the reception to turn in their key.
